  1. Yah, it's tough for sure. I don't even really care about the state level rules. If I still have to go to work five days a week, and can do so safely, then I can find a way to go racing. But I just came off a two week quarantine, one team member is likely about to start one. I've also got two kids in elementary school. It's only going to be worse come race day, and I don't want to be the one to bring a disease to a race and give it to a bunch of people. We all discussed it as a team, we could get there, but the smart decision is to not as of now. None of us wanted to be the on
  2. I really thought Covid was done canceling races for us this year, but alas, we had to withdraw. The whole team is essentially on lockdown, and the state numbers here are terrible. We decided to bow out early to hopefully give a wait listed team adequate time to prep and make reservations. See y'all at Road America.
  3. Try trail braking/sliding it a bit into the turns. Be a little ham fisted. I was never a huge fan of the RT61&s on track. They last yes, but they never seem to match the grip of even an RS4.
  4. At least you can rest a bit knowing it's not just the rules issues that are all screwy. The whole world is pretty wonky right now. Not sure if the CEO stepping down effected rules issues, or if all the rules issues caused the resignation, or if there's 10 more things in the grey area that played a hand. At the end of the day, every one of us has a ton going on right now. I feel the BOD is doing the best they can with everything that's been going on. I know it may not seem that way, but we appreciate all your hard work.
  5. We stacked a pair of Vibrant mufflers on the new car because it was too loud and no one wants to listen to a loud VQ. Now it's less noisy at idle than my street car hahaha.
  6. You definitely fit in with the style of the show, and your personal knowledge of the teams being discussed. On a side note, near the end of the show on Sunday I think it was @Doc who wondered allowed if our car was Automatic. Its not.
  7. Now there's something I could get behind. Bring back BIR. And don't run it the same weekend as another race. Also, comp course only. The donnybrook is too treacherous if it rains, and packing up the paddock Saturday night sucks.
  8. The NLS 240SX is a hatch not a coupe so that's not them. Sounds like testing was exciting.
  9. What happened? I think I passed you between 5 and 7, and never looked back. Saw the wreck on my next lap around.
  10. We aim to be there no matter the format. We ran the RA parc ferme "championship" in 17 and it was awesome. I am curious about the penalty laps situation. If it's "one race" with a parc firm then it's one assesssment of 1.5 modifier. If it's 2 races, it's 1X laps each day. If we're suspending MOV laps because it's considered 1 race but run as 2 it stands to reason we'd do the same with VPI penalties. Just my opinion.
  11. A little over 4 weeks till it needs to be on the trailer. I need build update motivation.
  12. I'm not arguing for or against MOV laps. But if we're going to consider it "1 race", then the normal penalty laps must be adjusted also. In a normal 8+7 a say 550 point car takes 5 penalty laps each day. If it were 1 15 hour race it would only be 8 penalty laps for the whole race. Are they all applied at the start of Saturday? Or spread out somehow?
