Spin the crap off your tires and turn the nannies back on just once. Then you can judge what to do from there. And it is a blast right?

Yeah man you had some great passes even with the track prep not being that great (from what I was told). Do you know who/what car hit the sand trap?

Oh and car sounds great with the LT's! Are they catless?

Silver Dollar is decent most of the time, but I wouldn't use the word "right". Traction is suspect on some Fridays, having had close calls on more than one occasion (but I'm a raw amateur). Track prep at Valdosta is better IMHO, but a 70 minute longer drive for me, so I go to Silver Dollar.
