I was there.

Therefore, I am not a square.

I raced in my underwear.

With a bear.

While eating a pear.

On a dare.

With Rick Flair.

Quick post about the first two races for this series that went down tonight. Outfuckingstanding  :o

The size of field was good 12 & 13 racesrs per race and the depth was good to see as well.

I am already anticipating next weeks two races.

If you missed it be somewhat sad because it was a ton of fun. But you can always make it out next week and see for yourself.

In the second race Grumpy and I had much back and forth. And it was so intense that I was just lost in the driving and racing. Was not playing a game in my mind was driving and racing.

Here was my week.  I was racing the Skip Barber car at Mid-Ohio.  The skippy is a trainer race car.  Not that powerful but it will bite you if you drive it wrong.  It's an absolute blast of a car to drive and perfectly suits the track.  The combo is amazing.  The curves and elevation changes are incredible.  In three races this week, I won the first one because the only fast driver in the group got knocked out in an accident.  My next two races I got knocked by someone who thought they were racing NASCAR and someone who thought they were Aryton Senna respectively.  The moral of my story is that no matter how good the physics, track or car is, you still need good people to race with.

On the subject of shifter carts, I took the shifter cart out to Interlagos karting course.  You guys are going to love this course when GT gets it.  It's so intense.

Bravo everyone!!!!

Man that was fun as hell last night.  Those karts can really make you sweat, especially when the field is breathing down your neck.   ;D 
Thanks Baked and company for some good battles out there.  I worked my ass of to get those spots. 


Also, I know a few were curious of trans settings, so here is what I used.  Set them in the order shown.

Final - 5.020
Slider - 124
1 - full left
2 - 1.589
3 - 1.255
4 - 1.026
5 - .867
6 - .752

I will most likely only be changing the final gear from track to track.

Thanks for sharing Brindle.

Also in case anyone is unsure next stop will be London forward and reverse. Maybe this time the host will be smart enough to know which is which.  ::)

Ok first race is in the books with results and points as follows.

Brindle             130
Baked               120
jlbowler            110
peyepete          100
Turbo                 90
TunaWiz            80
badaboya          70
crack-shaft       60

ex_stream          40
dlrws6                30

Though no extra points are awarded would like to congratulate Brindle and bada on their front row starting spots. And to jlbowler for having the fastest lap in the race.

The second race looked familiar with Brindle and bada on the front row. But there was much action to come, by the halfway point we had seen five different leaders and the top five guys were seperated by. 1.1 seconds.

Finishing spots and points below.

Brindle            130
TunaWiz         120
Baked              110
Grumpy           100
badaboya         90
ex_stream        80
crack-shaft      70
peyepete          60
Turbo                50
jlbowler            40
dlrws6              30
Dude                 20
Mondo             10

And yours truly took fastest lap in the race. An honor I will share with Grumpy as us drafting together is when I got that fast time.

Thanks for sharing Brindle.

Also in case anyone is unsure next stop will be London forward and reverse. Maybe this time the host will be smart enough to know which is which.  ::)

So, is it the shifter carts all month?  Or do the vehicles change each week also?  Sorry, I am kinda lost  :-\

Never mind...I just read the name of the thread...LOL

See you Friday...and thanx to both Baked and Brindle for the trans info...maybe I can pull my head out this Friday!!!!
