Nevermind. Preston couldn't resist the STX WRX. So he'll be co-driving with Steve Garnjobst.my co-driver (Preston Jordan) will be there co-driving Joe Austin's car. He was originally going to run in STX, but decided to run STF with hopes of being able to run my car in the Finale.
Yes they are going down the middle and each course is going out left and right respectively. Very good setup. Very big and fast out there. Should be fun tomorrow.I hope they put the start in the middle and one goes left and the other right. I'd have to have courses that long and skinny with a middle start it allows for something other than slaloms
It feels good, I took around 10 runs on the practice course and basically didn't need to change a thing. The car feels well balanced and is able to rotate nicely on this concrete. All I need to do is drop front psi more. 38-39 was too much and the inside of the front tires were actually getting significantly hotter than the middle and outside. Gonna drop to 35 psi tomorrow and I think that will help and make the car even better.OK Adam, how does the car feel? Anyone there that can take some pics of your car running today?
Sheesh. Guess I've gotta try lower this weekend. If you can do it, *I* can do it! Just can't figure out why mine (first set of Rivals) wore out evenly at 44#pen:All I need to do is drop front psi more. 38-39 was too much and the inside of the front tires were actually getting significantly hotter than the middle and outside.

Well bringing home the gold will be a tall order. The Chhit bros will be tough plus Andres and some other good drivers..... Salenius....ect. A top 3 trophy spot would make me very happy especially at this early stage in the game. This is my first event of the year so probably going to be a little rusty. This course is going to be quite fast and the header/cat/tune not yet installed would be nice to have for the extra power and raised rev limit. Oh well, do the best with what we gotCool!!! Bring back gold for the Mazda3.
Try it and let me know how it turns out for you! I think you'll find some more speed there.Sheesh. Guess I've gotta try lower this weekend. If you can do it, *I* can do it!
Yup, already ran into Joe. I'll tell'em howdy for you tomorrow. Also shot the shit with Andres for awhile and was good to see him. Saw Chhits from afar, but haven't talked to them yet. I'm sure I'll get to meet them tomorrow in grid.Tell Joe A. that Scott from Arizona says "hi".
Then, beat him like a drum.:twisted::twisted::twisted:
No it's not, the car is freaking out intermittently on course and dash lights galore come on. I lose power steering and abs brake system is acting very funky. It appears to be some sort of electrical problem. Checked all my ground connections and they look good. The battery is old though and may be bad....Andres loaned me his extra so we're gonna give it a shot for tomorrow and hope for the best.Is everything ok?
Yeah, me too. I guess a marginal battery can make the car act as if it's possessed....should've replaced it even though it seemed to still be working "ok."VERY glad to hear it was only the battery. In Arizona they last at the most only three years; seven years is unheard of.
Looking forward to following your next adventure.
On the brighter side, you did manage to eek by Joe A.....:rolledeyes:
