I've seen this purple people eater run with our group before and it goes link stink. Nice driving too!

Dave ... I hope you're not mad you got a nickname from it. I wouldn't have done if I didn't like ya.




LOL. Ron, it's all good. Some nicknames have staying power.... and most don't.

It's the closest track to my house so I am in.

I remember my first trip to Northern California. I was in San Franscisco and drove up to Sonoma for the day. As I turned the corner from 37 onto 121, I passed the entrance sign to Infineon Raceway. It took about 5 seconds for that to register, and I slammed on the brakes and did a u-turn in the middle of 121. I drove back, and the place was wide open. It was a weekday, and some cars were running practice laps, others were being worked on in the garages. I parked and just walked around the track for a while. Such a cool experience!
Gitter dun dude. Make it happen.

That sobering up comment was more accurate than you know.

I am wondering about running the A6's (autocross tires)
on the race track.. it was always my understanding that
they heated up quicker but will not sustain the longer runs
of heat required by the race track and 20 minute sessions

Heat cycling always help the tire last longer but not sure
if that type of heat cycling will work... I do understand
that race slicks have several compounds from soft to hard
just wondering about the A6's??

Ron or anyone had any experience with them

Was hoping to be going to Optima in Oregon that weekend

WE are trying the A6 because of the tire temp measurements of the R6's when running Thunderhill.

We ARE not racing.... and I'm certainly no race car driver.... a real race car driver would most certainly generate too much heat... but I don't. I also have a complete set of R6's mounted on another set of wheels -- so if the temps tells us the A6 is getting too hot... a simple switch will be made. WE are doing this based on the science of our own measurements, rather than, what someone told someone else's buddy one time.

The tire pressures I WAS using were near but not close enough... actual measurements of the tire temps and ending pressures etc gave us the info needed to set the tires right. Now - that's the new numbers being used instead of just kinda sorta someone else is using X pressure.

This all sounds so scientific, like somebody tuning a car. I thought you just got in and drove

So Jeff & Dave are coming.

Anybody else want to break away from Honey-do's or sleeping in & join us?

We don't want to have all this fun without you. Trust me ... we will ... but we don't "want to".

Nice changing of the subject.... Rob is right - your river of hypocrisy is running pretty deep right now.

I mean, no one blames you. Why would you buy a track car and not wanna at least go fast(er)?
