Still not good enough for me to hook up and run a twelve though !!
I hope they invest in the good trackbite for the 13th.
Recently made some changes that allowed me to increase my mph by about 6 mph at a 2/10th et reduction so I'm in sight.
I must admit that the finish line area's water trap was finally fixed, and the small forrest that the water was growing cleared out. Still a large hole on the right lanes edge because they had to dig up the road to fix the broken pipe. It was funny though, they didn't start sweeping the debris off until about 8pm.

But, all n all, not a bad night of racing.

Oh, I believe it. I saw that run.
I have the same "spinning through first" issue also.
Nice run by the way for a "bad" one.

N don't you sleep? lol

That might have something to do with the fact that all the people involved with setting it up and running the events have other jobs and do this unpaid after coming in practically straight from their day job. Maybe call up Vince and offer to come in early next Saturday to help prep.

Glad to hear you made good progress on your car.

I agree. It was a good night. My car was not quite up to snuff though, but still doing pretty well.

Still have to sort my clutch out. Starting to think it might be something in the linkage as first there was free play and then there was not. Will have to inspect ath more closely after helping a friend with a brake job on his 109 Land Rover.

I do think I sorted the seeming to run out of fuel problem, the float bowl settings were low, especially the forward float. Adjusted that this morning and it is running much better.
