OK my wife finally showed me the emails from TDE. So I guess I get no paddock space. I did not see Carl or David on the list. You guys are going right?
I forgot about tech inspection. When/how are you guys doing this?

WHo is going on Friday? Saturday morning?

Who is trailering ? I need a place to lock up my stuff if I am going to be stuck in the darn parking lot.

Driver's Edge does not allow anyone inside the car with you unless they are another paying driver/student/customer - OR, they are an instructor. :(

You guys have fun and above all else - PLEASE STAY SAFE!!!!!!! Watch out for turn 7!!!! :rolleyes: :eek: :eek:

I will be bleeding the brakes on the R this weekend ahead of the Supra Club/Ed Paez day next thursday, when David and I are instructing. I sure hope the weather cooperates?!!

Keep the shiny side up guys!!! :thumbsup:

So how'd everyone do??

Did Larry break yet ANOTHER Cobra??? :edmond:

Did Henry become a FASHER to another infant??? :baby:

Did Carl overflow his oil seperator tank??? :spoke:

Did David add any more "go fast/aerodynamics" to the Cobra?? :flash:

Did Stan show those IRS boys how it's done?? :headbang:

Hope you all made it hope safely and with the car's in good shape. :thumbsup:

Not a Fasher yet, but I will be on the 16th or sooner.

I made it through the weekend well. Rain on Sunday was very fun, plenty of fishtails but no spins and no time in the mud. So many cars were spinning close to me I decided not to push it and get slammed by some wacko in a Subaru.

Performance meter data is very cool. Lap analysis is easy. I had no real fast laps due to various excuses, traffic, brakes pulsing, rain, trying not to widow my wife.

G meter says I hit about 1.03 lateral Gs. I think this is high due to effects of body roll, but it is very usefull to compare lap to lap of your own car.

The meter records 10 data points per second, and it stored all of my sessions for the weekend (6).

It would be great now to put it in othrs cars to compare, and (GULP) let a real driver drvie my car to see how much better it can be done.
