True story...

NASA Check Rider -"hops in the car, sorry to be an asshole but what do you do for a living?"
Me - "Some people got it, some people don't...they told me I'm full of it!"

When are you coming back up to VIR?

Nice, I am as excited for Fat Tire as much as the shit I bought from you. That may mean I have a problem.

It is OK. Follow me on track...I usually run one of the following:

1.) drunk line
2.) drug line (running from cops FAST need practice)

Ask Doc

That's why you should have kept your E90.

Martin I hope to still make it. I am mentally recovering from my close call at Summit Point this weekend with BMWCCA. My brakes went to the floor entering Turn 10 at 105mph. I passed the no braking exercise with flying colors.

I didn't check my pads after 1st day and I had about 1/8" left up front for day two. A guy from RRT at that track said I should change to new pads after they get close to 50%.

I did drop my times by 1.5 seconds studying the race keeper data and video.

If you get to the track Wednesday afternoon look for me, I am the drug dealer looking guy. Dave, I will bring your wheels!

Hey man nice to hear for you...

Yes, go with the RS3 by Hankook. You will have a lot of success with this setup.

I will be there in the GTR. Are you staying at VIR or in Danville? We may have enough room at the Villa if you want to stay with us...
