A quick update on the build... It's underway and the engine is in pieces. We should have some pictures posted this week. As soon as I can get them uploaded I'll post them up.
I had my track day on the 16th out at Miller Motorsports Park.
It was a "Lap Battle" competition that was set up in different classes (AWD, RWD, and FWD) though we all were on the track at the same time. We did the East Track and I hadn't done that one before. We did the West track last year for the Cobb track day. My first session I knew I wasn't going to be fast as I was trying to learn the track and find the best lines more than anything. My best time for the first session was a 2.02.53.
I was one of the few running street tires. Everyone else had some "R" compunds and alot of... oh what's that other thing called again? Oh yeah EXPERIENCE!! This was only my third track day so I am still in the learning stages. The second session was alot better. I had moved up to a 159.25 so I had broke the 2 min. marker. I rotated my tires after that session. Here are a few pics of the rotation: The tires after 2 sessions...
The 3rd session was my best of the day pulling in a 158.72. I was pretty stoked with that seeing as some of the guys running had more track time under the belt and I was pulling faster lap times and also that the conditions of the track were getting worse as the day went on. With that time. I qualified for the actual Lap Battle event. I was the slowest of the fastest so everyone that was slower than me was cut and could not participate. I had the most fun during that session. I was loving it and the car was running great. I wasn't overheating and the handling was ideal. I know for next time... I need to get some "R" compound racing tires... oh and that experience thing. I know that will help the most.
Here are some other pictures that I was able to take. I don't have any racing unfortunately because I was driving and there were no passengers allowed.
Some sweet Ferrari's: (They weren't racing)
The competition: That EVO and NSX were so fast it wasn't funny.)
