1. We (InActiv Motorsports) have 1-stint available in our Mazda 626. Inquire at our pit if interested. We have plenty of drivers to cover the seat time, but would be happy to have an experienced renter fill the seat. 

2. If you've never pitted in the pro-paddock, when you pit out, it's up the hill. You can't see down the hill to the left and behind you and thus, what's probably coming fast. So stay right until you are at the top of the hill. If you pit out and come across the track as cars are WOT up the hill, bad things are going to happen and people are going to write unflattering songs about you. 

Yeah. The blend line isn't very long and the speed disparity is going to be quite large until your at the top of the hill. Maybe this needs to be raised at the driver's meetings. The scheduled ones preferably.

Where is registration/tech at?

 

Sounded like it was a figure out when they get there kind of deal.  You won't be able to miss it, it will be where the long lines are.

 

Man, I could get used to this arrive/drive deal.  No last minute panic of stuff that I don't have ready on the car, no endless trips loading the trailer, no overnight shipping of something I forgot to order, no screw ups of something I left loose on the car.  Just show up.  Wow, whoda thunk you could do that?

 

Hey @Doc, no rain in the forecast!  0%!  No way it rains!  Zilch, none, can't happen, nada precip!

I hate that I'm sitting here in the ATL waiting on a flight home so I can turn around and drive right past the airport to Road ATL.

I was just trying to draw the ire of Doc just for fun, he's a lot more superstitious on this stuff.  Plus I think he hates driving in the rain as much as I do.  And I actually have 0 faith in anything a weatherman says.

 

And looking forward to seeing you guys too, should be a hoot.

Get a leakdown tester at harbor freight.  Also, spin the engine with the plugs out and see if there are tight spots.

 

I would hate to swap an engine and have the same issue come up again.  Try to figure out what's wrong first!
