oh im sure there is. probably never get to that point but somwhat stripped and some lighter seats would be nice. 200 lbs down or so. i have inspired a certain other party to copy me today. he also will be at ridge saturday. just extended my ducts to the rotor(dont have backing plates). reduced my turning radius quite a bit but no u turns on track is fine.

Nice driving for first time out. I had fun at that event trying to learn to drive my new car. Drove both run groups in the morning as I had to leave early. Nice thing about the Ridge vrs Pacific Raceways is there is a lot of run off so when cars go off track they usually are OK.

thanks carl. had a lot of fun. did passably well with the track for a first day but needs work for sure. think sub 2s should be in the cards after a couple visits. didnt run as cleanly as i would like but interesting to see how i handled or didnt handle the transition to a new track after so much experience at pacific. found the new types of turns and linked sections fun and challenging. now i want to try ORP and PIR. actually headed to PR this morning to see gregs build and talk with eddie about my driving and where to go from here.
