I'm sorry I missed gingerman I live 15-20min. away. I was really bummed. My thermostat housing cracked do to the previous owner putting in a colder thermostat. Hopefully I can make it to some of the events when they are close.

Darius,

I hope you don't mind me borrowing some of your photos for our website so we can get the pics up and we'll direct others to your site so people can look for the rest of them? :doubt:

Nice bunch of cars, except for that funky yellow fiberglass thing! Were any of the 2 seater cobras original aluminum cars or where they all repros? Could you tell anything about the quickness of the 03/04 cobras compared to the vette, viper, and 2 seater cobras or were you not allowed to pass?

thanks
Kurt

All 5 of the cobras were superformance Mk III's (at least the 5 I knew of). As for comparing the 03/04's vs the vettes, well the straightaways were basically a draw, and the corners the nod went to the vettes. From what I saw other than an instructor in a white Mustang, the Vipertruck in my first session, and a certain 2000R (*cough* Bruce *Cough*), I was never passed.

I did pass a couple vipers and several 03/04's and the superformance cars with some regularity. However I should also point out that this was my 5th OT event and most people in my group had much less experience than that (although it was my first trip to Gingerman, and I stayed in 4th gear).

I'm thinking next May at MAM Bruce your gonna see alot more of my car on Track:eek::thumbsup::cool:

I have already posted my extreme appreciation for all that organized, instructed and participated in the Gingerman Event. Again, another great event by SCMC.

For the past three days all I have heard from my two Viper buddies (Jim & Ron) was what a great time they had and what a great instructor Darius Rudis was. As it turns out, Darius spent significant time riding around on Sat.
in a couple of Dodges. So a big Thank You to Darius from Jim & Ron. :thumbsup:

p.s. Darius, maybe I'll see you in Waterford this weekend.

This was my first track event and I still can't get this grin off my face. What a blast! Mark Wilson was an awesome instructor, got me around the track sorta fast in spite of my nervousness! I absolutely love my car and to be able to drive it as it was designed for it so cool! I am definitely hooked and can't wait for next year. :D Thanks to all who made me feel so welcome and being one of the few female drivers it was really cool to be like one of the guys! :)

Anybody besides me ever noticed the wording in the SVT booklet that comes with 04 Cobra that says very clearly, if you race, you must add a differential cooler .... do you think a track day is not harch enough to be concerned with the rear end?

thanks

Kurt,

Yes, many of us with 99-up IRS cars have added a cooler....there are a few options on types, either in car (ala kenny brown) or external (terry/tj motorsports)

for more info, look at the cobra r forums here and at svtperformance.com

This was my 1st track event (I do some local autox) and I had a great time. Fred, my instructor, taught my lots and exhibited unlimited patience. He also took me for a few hot laps in his 'R' which was a great treat. Special thanks to the coordinators who made the event possible. As the only Bullitt GT on the track and a newbie to boot I was made to feel welcome by all and really enjoyed playing with people who want to get the most from their cars.

Hi Punk Lancelot, you have the black bullitt that had the cracked rotors, right? I chatted with you a bit, I'm from the Twin Cities, it was my first track event too. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend, great people, great cars and wow, did I learn a lot! What a blast! Can't wait for next time, I want to get faster and I really need to overcome my death grip on the wheel! Hopefully I'll see you at the next event!
