Ripken report... Let's have it.

Nick? Alex? Clyde?



Edit: I forgot. Clyde is busy somewhere else.

Doh, forgot about them. They're way more interesting than Nick and Alex, too.

Uh, my car beat Bren's car by 1.75 seconds. I was the fastest CAR that ran today. Only some B-Modifed hack job, and a couple of Caterhams turned in faster times.

...and my car still needs:
an alignment...
corner balance...
and a few other tweaks.

All in all, I can only say that these things are fucking amazing.

And that it helps when you remember to look ahead. I finally remembered to do that on my run and gained a second.

Yep.

The scary thing is that I know I could have gone two seconds faster if I'd cleaned up a bit, looked up more, and gotten more aggressive with the throttle.

One of our local drivers, Andrea Cairone, won ASP in the DC national tour last year, driving an M coupe.

Too bad your car wasn't around then to defend your local turf.

Andreas is damned fast. (He's also on the 'fest.)

He's also probably faster than I am.

We didn't run today in the "real" autox. We were out yesterday at the autox school.

But that's something for a different thread.
