TransAm at the Glen was just cancelled and that really sucks as we have been planning for it since Feb. Can't wait for 2020 to end.
That sucks. Sounds like you need to get a spec miata....It was great hanging out with you Ray.
Always nice to meet someone from the forum and we were like Arnold and Danny.
To bad our group sucked and can't drive for shit. Every practice session was blacked flagged, race one was red flagged then black flagged. Race two was a split start and the lead group a TA car could not make it past T 1 on The first lap. That caused our start to have 4 laps under double yellow, three green laps and then another crash for the balance of the race under double yellow.
Spec miata had 70 cars and not one yellow flag. SCCA won't do shit so we will revaluate our racing dollar spend.
Car handling is sorted but was down on power. Going to do some motor work and get more power in the meantime they powered it with this.
Racing with PBOC next weekend.
Too bad you had to go back. Lots of people going to be at Cal Hartline's Cadillac Attack this weekend.10 Days in Florida and got back to 16 degrees. Urghh. Best part of the time was meeting Blades and hanging out with him trackside. Appreciate you coming out and hanging with the team and I have an open invite to any of you for events we go to.
Blew the 410 Diff and had to put the 385 backup in, with the car down on power and this diff I could barely get it into 5th on the back straight. As they say run what ya brung. PBOC (Porsche BMW Owners Club) runs a great show and was very accommodating when we asked to go out with the HPDE group to test. Very friendly and great to work with. 00 lost thirst and 4th gear in the sequential so we had to put the backup tranny in. Tranny as in transmission for all you perverts.
I'll be back for PBOC (great event) and the car is getting a motor refresh. This will be done at the Mech Tech school in Orlando as one of the crew members graduated from there and they let us use the shop and all the gear. This includes welding, electrical you name it. My hat is of to them to allow for us to come in and work. The students love it because it is real time. real world experience. We run the stickers and promote the school and do some PR work for them as well. Saturday we had a feast at the track, brought in a caterer as there were many guests, it was a full Puerto Rican food fest with pernil, rice/beans, plantains, flan, all delicious. I ate three plates of pernil and could not get enough. Sorry you missed that one Ray.
Hope to be in Atlanta next month, we'll see if the car is ready.
I love the 348 even though they were the reheated step child for a long time.Off topic but I found some old pictures (From my blackberry no less) of My F car.
I have mentioned it before and surprised none of you cunts did not call me out for pictures.
I have no experience with the Cup cars but I fully endorse your switching to PorscheSome rule changes in my class in SCCA, they are allowing Cup cars in T1. This put my car at a huge disadvantage as the cup cars are untouchable against my platform. It's one thing to be competitive and and battle for a win - which I can, its another to be totally stomped on by another platform. The Porsche platform I was going to anyway and this has accelerated my decision if I am going to stay with the class. Preferred platform 991 to rich for my blood.
Bang for the buck is a 997.1 GT3 cup prefer the 997.2 with the 4.0, again to much $. Factory race car beats built race car any day of the week. Have a bead on a 997.1 GT3 Cup with 20 hours on the motor and trans, has auto blipper. The cup cars are basically a spec series and everything I have done to both BMW's is standard in the Cup car. Gas and go and keep with the upkeep. Any of you cunts have any experience with the platform ? GT2/GT3 RS or Cup ?
