Stuck in traffic at MSR Houston...

I'll get a Traqmate with a proper camera next year as the iPhone set up has proved to be too delicate for high speed applications.

Good turn out with The Drivers Edge at MSR Houston this past weekend. And the weather was awesome. And the Dinan pulley got installed. And the six point harness got finally hooked up. And then I showed up with some old Hoosiers. So I missed out on the 43's.

I saw you running out there -- hell of a great car. You were hauling a$s!

I think I was riding along in the car you passed at 2:29

Nice driving! But - Why was everyone else going so slow? Reminds me of my drive into the office

I'd like to see some pics of your harness if you have any.

Have you been at any of the open track days posted in the SW section?

Stock. It's a financial disaster to try to make this car competitive at the race track.

I was there at the M Club MSRH event in September.

hmm - I need to get out there with you and get some tips!

Is that time on Hoosiers? If so, what do you think that you could do on 245/265 RE-11's? Just curious how much of a difference the Hoosiers really make I guess.
