Mike or Chriss care to weigh in on our chances???????????

I only got to race against you at night. Those. Cars. Are. Fast. Period! Until I get my car fixed and set up right I don't think I'll be much in the way of competition for you. But you and Chris should have a heck of a battle if ya'll don't break down first!

Yah the lil one is a lil faster, but some of it was driver too.

Baby is a lil lighter and weight, as we know, is a factor.

We have a lil work to do to both, we will be ready for the race at VIR.

I thin kwe can make this a repeat performance, the Jetta will do a lot better on a more technical handling track. You guys had better watch out. I have her up on stands going through everything right now.

Is the little one a 190? I ran against the big Merc at CMP last year. We ran a green BMW E30 and it was fast we have a video of it chasing us around the track..
/>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRmYilDgo1E at around 1:08 you can see it and it gets closer..

There is a team here in FL building a 190.. since there are a few of them with Manuals. It will be a great car when done.

Hi, yah the lil one is a 190, it took a while to find a manual for it, but as you can see it is working pretty well. I hope i get to see what the guys in Fl come up with for there 190, it has taken us a while to hone in on a reliable car. We have a few issues with this one, and hope she will stick together.

I was Pit In as Rockingham volunteer, so as a bystander, close to the track for most of the race, the Jetta team is unbeatable - the Lab Rats Motorsports. They seemed to use only two drivers most of the time and those two drivers were spectacular on the track. A few times I saw them NOT hit the brakes into the cone chicane on the big turn. Yeah others did it but not as often as these drivers. The only mess ups I saw with this team was the Pit delay for some suspension issue destroying passenger front tire, a Pit delay to get rear running lights working, and a short time "weaker" driver near the end of the race. I am thinking if they sort out the suspension to not destroy the tires at VIR, this team is unbeatable. On the other hand.....there will be 20+ more teams and maybe some better German engineering to tangle with these Rats.

It would look as if I paid you to make this post. Is it Ok if I print this out and frame it. That really means so much. I am going to have to now buy a larger helmet.

By the way, the issue was that we broke a RF axle and had to replace it. That sucked.

Way to go and inflate Chris's ego. <_< I have to work with this guy everyday you know. When he starts talking about how great his car is at VIR, I'm going to send him to you! :P

I will look forward to the chance of beating the Camaro fair and square. I hated to see the thing have the problems that it did at the Rock. I am looking forward to racing against that thing at VIR though. I will not talk crap about the yellow demon any more.

By the way, you are an original Lab Rat yourself!

Well guys... for all the kudos and planning and horsepower and top-notch drivers we have in ChumpCar... may I point to the Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Audi, Bentley, Toyota, Mazda, Corvette and other teams that race the 24 Hours of LeMans, ALMS, Grand-Am (etc, etc) that do everything that we do but with a budget that's 1,000,000 times greater and with race teams that are 1,000,000 times more experienced... and they still blow up.

But, you see, *they* can afford it.... :)
