    2019 VPI List Is Out!

    Exactly, the guys on our team were all talking about this. 230+ rwhp and 500+ pounds lighter than our SC300s......holy smokes.

    Anybody spy the S2000 on the list at 500 points........I mean, that has stupid potential right there.

    Uuuhhhmmmm, lol. I try and keep tabs on all sorts of stuff while I am on track. I watch the clouds, traffic, corner workers, even sing on the radio.......lol
  4. I am just telling you my perspective, for you to add into your thought process about the situation. I can assure you that when I am driving, I try to consider every single thing that another car may do so that I can plan for avoidance, but that line starting out way wide and cutting in for the grass mid corner is pretty far outside of "normal", even if that is that you were doing all day. The entry to 17 should never be that wide as it can be misleading for faster cars coming up on you, again, just my opinion. BTW, I see where my last line in that quote may seem a little harsh, but that is the impression that I got from you saying things like "but he barely changes once he has turned in", or "I took that line and the other cars avoided me fine", etc. I am sorry if that is the wrong impression, but I took your statements as meaning that you are ok with sweeping across the track like that, which I feel is not a good way to race.
  5. The main thing to remember is to be predictable. That line through 17 is anything but that. By entering the corner 2-3 lanes outside of "normal", it looks like you are saying "this is my line, I am entering wide and this is where I will stay so faster cars can have all of the open track under me", but it sounds like you think that sweeping across 3 lanes is normal and OK. In my opinion, it is not. Sure if you are at a private track rental and want to try out new lines, go for it, but when on track with 80+ other cars with wide ranges in speed and skill, pick a lane and stay in it. I would MUCH rather have a car be racing on the correct line and for me to figure out how to get around them than for them to be swapping lanes mid corner, especially if they are of the mindset that other cars should avoid them as they take whatever line they want. Just my opinion.

    I saw him over by 11-12 at some point when I was driving.
  7. Way too wide and too slow on entry to swoop across the track to come down to the apex. If I were coming up on a car doing that, to me, they are broadcasting that they are leaving the inside line open and that is where I am going. Once committed, there may not be much available room for correction to avoid contact. Yes, you should always try and leave a plan out of harms way, but to me that looked like he was leaving the inside lanes (like 3 of them) open, then came all the way across track down to the most inside lane.
  8. They leave their used up fuel barrels and pallets in the paddock too, for someone else to clean up after they are done. I do not understand that group......at all....... Thanks for the kudos everyone and congrats to everyone else who finished! What a race! I am still sore from all of the driving I did. My apologies to anyone that I might have scared in the rain by passing them with the car drifting more than going straight. I can't describe how much I like racing in the rain, its just freaking epic.
  9. Buuuump! Anybody fast wanna run up front?
  10. Yep! Just got it in the mail today!
  11. Anybody else needing a ride? Seems like there is always a silent period a few weeks before the race, then my phone blows up the week of the race with people looking for seat time. Best to call or text me at 352-225-1210 if you want to get ahold of me quickly.
  12. We have some stints available in both our chop top 300ZX and the #226 Lexus SC300. Both cars are fast and have the potential to run up front. The 300ZX is an EC car, but an absolute blast to drive, the SC300 is a sister car to the one that we have won 5 races in a row with including Daytona the last 3 years and Sebring the last two years.

    LS400 brakes for SC300

    We actually have enough to build two complete systems plus extras if somebody wants a cheaper options instead of buying one giant lot of parts.
  14. Any series that races at Daytona is not allowed to say that their cars go over 200mph, I was simply following the advisement of the track. Get all three of mine together in a good draft and we can knock down 250 easily.
