Yeah I plan to keep it as is for now. I talked to you about what I would like to change first, see how that treats me, then go from there. Got a pretty solid set-up so far, just a couple tweaks and I'll be golden, at least on this track. I can make changes for other tracks I'll venture out to next year...

Re: R-silaxin's Trackday thread

First Race ever... Took 4th... :| The shot's weren't too bad though. Wish the photog would have varied it up a bit. But happy to finally have pics of myself out there on the track! Enjoy...














PASS...












2nd Race Ever... Amateur Race... Passed the same guy in the first lap that I did the last lap of the first race.

Thanks Ram! That's the kink.... Loooooong left hander called the carousel, into that right hander at about 80mph roughly... Body positioning is getting there...

Head west... WAAAAY WEST!

I could teach you the lines of the track, then you'd prob blow my tires off...

This track is tight and technical, and almost every turn a LATE apex... It's hard being patient for the turn in, but the later the apex, the better the drive out of almost EVERY turn. Took me awhile to learn that... Had an expert teach me some killer lines and was out there doing MUch better. I was always over anxious taking each turn and taking them hard and early, but the set-up for the next turn was terribowl...



Def come on out, Anyone is welcome. Super cheap trackdays and a great crew out there!

Re: R-silaxin's Trackday thread

Just noticed the dude in the background of that pic Ram quoted too... I was puting some DISTANCE between us, and gaining ground on guys in front of me in both races. Just got TERRIBLE starts both races... To put it Frankly, I had no idea what I was doing on the race starts...

It was... UGLY... Spent both races trying to catch the fast ass dude's... Oh well... I think I'm progressing nicely...

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

There's always something more to learn. Not everything has to be taught to you by AMA license holders.
