Awful quiet in here lately. Anybody thinking about a fall run at WGI? Is UpstateC5 doing anything anymore? I had to see it dissolve, but I know a lot of the OG guys have had life take them in...

I think we learn something no matter what the conditions - but these were pretty poor so I'm not willing to say that was a factor. I know guys have gone 1.5x on this tire (in the super short...

None of my video equipment was working very well, but based on my calculations it should have been around 6400. Definitely loved the extra gear from the short tires. I think in good conditions...

Let us know how it works. The 169*F stat is the right temp (IMO) to run for most bolt on/cammed cars. It would be nice if there was an option that was so absurdly expensive.

It was crap. DA was killer, but we had a steady 15-20mph headwind with gusts double that amount right down the track all night. Prep was uncharacteristically poor (probably because they knew it...

I follow that approach, it's just all an approximation. I think that's a fair assumption for a stock LS3 car, +/- 5%.
