Motor overheated in the second race at Miller. Went into limp mode. No 6 fuel injector was bad too. Still don't know cause/effect. Season over in WC.

The SS turns in fine but when powering out it begins to push. So much traction out back I can't get the rear to swing out a little. Probably need to keep tinkering with my front end settings.

The only track I've done a same day - same track is Grand Sport in Houston. Short, technical track with no long straights. I'm guessing at MSR with a couple of decent straights, the SS will win out...

I'm running 315/335 Toyo R888s 18in on my SS. Full Pfadt racing suspension. 600/600 rwhp. My lap times are still faster in my Z28. More balanced exiting corners and I haven't found a way to keep the...

Here's a link to the first race. Ended in the rain. Worth watching to see the cars go off track, sometimes spectacularly.

The Camaros haven't been very competitive this year. So WC allowed them to run a new restrictor plate and they clearly had the advantage in both races. It would have been a 1.2 finish for the...

#59 took.....wait for it......59 days from build to delivery to Houston. Heck, you're only at around 45 days. And yeah, it sucks.

Come by and ask for me at Sonoma. We'll be running 2 Mustangs there. Alec Udell in the 17 and Mitch Landry in the Versa Crane Mustang. Ask for Randy. We usually paddock on the east end of the track.

Get your checkbook ready. Did I say I own the no 17 Mustang driven by Alec Udell. This series frowns on swapping paint, but the Kia blocked us all day. Even their fans noted it on their fb page.

Camaros and Mustangs have to run with restrictor plates. Probably making 350 crank HP. That's how a Kia passes us.

I also used some TrakTape behind the wheel wells, the gills and front facia. Worked fine . Picked up some track dust in a few spots where it came slightly loose.

A little similarity is there, but it's actually taken off of a couple of race cars we used to own. A professional graphic artist did the original rendering.

What's your vision like in the rear view mirror with the bill installed at max height? I'm concerned about seeing the car on my tail. Could a spec Miata "hide" there in the blind spot?

Why put the car on the showroom without the splitter? I know it may be a PITA to move it around with the splitter installed, but you're trying to grab attention and sell the car.
