The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

There is "Choice Hotel" I think it is a Comfort Suites right next door. That is where I am staying.

Now all I have to do is rebuild the front brakes and I am ready to go. (Yes I have the parts I just need to find the time)

I took my car apart in anticipation of parts that were to arrive this week that are now not arriving until next week. Now I won't have my car this weekend.

I am thinking about getting Pedders camber adjuster plates, but I spent a ton of money on the car this winter on brakes, rotors, tires & wheels

I am in the same boat. I spent a ton and tried to get 295 PSS to fit but could not without camber plates. So back they went and had to get 285's since CP's were not in the budget. I had already spent too much damn money. But, ya know, you can not take it with you. Maybe next year.

The more the merrier. The only way the practice the line without being on the track is to watch videos of others on track. I am sure you have a few with some really good drivers you could share with us.

Find Your Line at Gingerman









John Buttermore has the best line and is roboticly precise in hitting it. In the Mustang Camaro shoot out for Hot Rod John ran 30 hot laps in each car, if my memory is correct. The difference in the Mustang between his fastest and slowest lap was 1/100th of a second. He was terrible in the Camaro with a full 1/10th of a second difference.

Not perfect by any means, but it will give you an idea.
