We came in fifth in class. Won organizers choice award. This is me in the first minute with 30 mins to go. Waved him by at the bus stop. Not bad for a bone stock 90s ranger. My first time on a track and I’ve never owned a manual car.

Noooooo. Do the front now ! On a tl truck filling the grill and an 8 inch air dam was huge. On your truck just some rubber hanging from the front bumper would be worth a ton.

fine style, you look like your ready to fall asleep griping the steering wheel, not a death grip, i say drive that technique,learn your down shifts just a little smoother, but there fine, ,( no window nets??)top 5! good job😁ok gotta ask, is that rustoleum or val spar brush on aluminum paint??

Thanks. Yea, I suck at driving stick. I did improve greatly from Friday to Sunday. We think the clutch and synchros are worn, will be crackin the transmission before Sonoma to check it out. Putting an adjustable watts link under the pumpkin before next race. I wonder if the fastback cage improved our body roll?

yes, Any weight high up is that polar moment thing vertically, all wieght on race cars are best if ' sucked ' in towards the center, & low as possible,ps, Sonoma?, Sears Point??, oh boy, buttonwillow poc, S P is much more technical, but an Absolute blast, elevation changes are quite fun, talk to a local hot shoe to get tipps., Much more opportunities to soil your Haines
