So... Bit of a long red flag there. We had a car catch fire in the back area of the track and safety workers couldn't get the fire put out. They emptied a water truck, and the car caught fire again as it was loaded onto the roll-back.. The fuel leak just kept feeding it.

 

But all is good now, no injuries, and we are back to racing.

Whoa, RBank Civic just turned a 2:02, next fastest time is 2:04

 

That's right on the edge of unbelievable!   That car is 2-3 seconds faster than the fastest EC car,  and 7 seconds faster than Bills MR2.  It's technically putting a second of gap on bill every 20 seconds. 

 

Wow!

Wow! 

Bill's car is having trans issues, sometimes can't get 4th, have to go back to 3 then 4. Might end up running the race in 5th gear. (watching the facebook feeds)

 

Still running solidly in 5th.

The prior two drivers only managed a 2:05 and a 2:04... new driver pops a 2:02 followed by a 2:03 then a yellow, looks like a very good driver can make a fast car go faster.

I ran the 2:04 the 2:02 was ran by a former scca national champ.

The point being Bob keeps saying Honda is 2-4 seconds off the pace, at The Ridge he is 2 seconds off the pace of the ultimate fast lap by a ChumpCar style car.  Put in a very good driver and the gap is closed.  Did the other ultimate laps come from someone who knows how to wheel a car to its ultimate potential - likely.  Not saying Andrew is not good, just saying maybe the driver has a bit to do with finding the ultimate pace of a car.

Wow! 

Hey Bob - and it's a Honda! Rbank is a great team like someone mentioned, but this car is another creation of Andrew and Dave Johnson. I saw it at Gingerman and am not surprised by the 2:02-2:04's. Those guys can build great cars!

We're at 4 don't give me credit I'm not entitled to. :-) 

 

Cmon Ron,  you know what you're seeing is uncommon.  Red0 What can you tell us about the car?  What engine is in it? What's it weigh? Tranny? Tires? Do these guys have experience on this track? 

 

Awesome!  :-)

You said you figured it could do a 2:01 at The Ridge, I'm saying a better driver may push it to the 2:00 or 1:59 that only two other cars have done.  The statement remains, Honda is not that far off the pace that you are always making it out to be.

Once again... To much credit.  You didn't ask if that car we're racing/testing in ldrl is a 500 point chump car.   

 

If these guys are crushing it, let's not muck up a race thread with rules debates.  Please!  Let these guys have it! :-)

If anyone can drive a Civic, it's Andrew.. he's only done.. maybe.. 40 events in Civic / Integra in the past 5 years! (So that shows just how fast that other driver is who beat him by 2 seconds!!!)

Team Sahlen is putting up a great performance. Mustard car in 2nd by ~9 seconds. Ketchup car in 3rd, 2 laps back but they started with 2 laps MOV.

 

[edit]

I think I jinxed Sahlen.. Mustard isn't turning laps now.
