I hear ya, but that raises the car 1", is heavier, and noticeably slows down acceleration so that extra top end with the 17's comes at a cost. I rarely see a course quite that fast. My rev limiter bounces at 7,000. If I bumped it to 7,500 I think I could have my cake and eat it too so to speak. The only question mark is will this engine with 175,000 miles on it tolerate it.woulda had more top end on 17s
See that's my dilemma right there. We gotta bring two sets of tires now
Looked good though. car running well?
Haha, I'll see what I can do . I've noticed STL often likes to have a very flowing setup that often feels like a mini road course.Adam, please send some of your course designs and/or course designers out west. Locally the "feature of choice" seems to be many different variations of "slaloms". We lovingly refer to some of them as "slalom until you puke".:shocked:
I'd LOVE to run something along the lines of a mini road course. Always been my personal favorite.:mj:
Nice job! Almost a 3 tenths lead, too.
Thanks Justin, the car is feeling good and starting to get dialed in which helps. There is still a lot to do development wise, but I'm going to resist the urge to make any more changes (other than slapping some much needed fresh rubber on) before heading to Lincoln here in a few days.Nice job! Almost a 3 tenths lead, too.
Lincoln should be really fun. 13 in the Pro and 15 in the Tour so far. Great numbers. Lots of Minnesotans in STF for some reason.
No, all the DNF's were legit. Most of the early ones were people going to the right of the last cone in the slalom before the first 180.Morning runs:
34.114+DNF 34.714 34.142 34.311
I disagree with the DNF. The next 3 or 4 people also had DNFs, so I think it was just worker confusion.
That announcer would be me.Afternoon runs:
34.689 33.986+1 34.092 33.111
Some wise sages were talking about a few places where the uneven pavement was causing over rotation. That was basically what I had none of. The announcer was giving a few bits of advice as I was about to launch so I tried to use it all.
