Mike and I believe in the same concepts for corner exit speed. Know the characteristics of the corner, faster in and faster out!

Well, the weather isn't gonna be that great this weekend, but gotta start getting the car ready. Take it to the shop next week for rear diff service and overall inpsection, so gotta get the things I can do done this weekend. Got the new trailer home last week, and got the WD hitch all set up properly. Loaded the car to find exactly where I have to set it for balance. No room to get out by door, so crawling in and out of window is the trick...the NASCAR guys make it look soooo easy, being half my size may help them too....except for T. Stewart ha ha. Took trailer loaded with car for a little spin around town, to be sure the Expy could handle it and it did fine. Only added an exera 1000# to what I was towing with the open trailer and the Expy is rated at handling up to 8900#, so all is good. Learned a trick from my neighbor, who tows an mobile home trailer, that is to open the roof vent when towing. Helps reduce the air pressure inside and relieves some of the "suction" created when the semi trailer go by. I now feel what the NASCAR cars feel when they're side by side. The semi's I thought would push me, but instead, suck me in. Different driving habit I'll have to learn. Put 500 miles on the trailer bringing it home, so gotta do some preventive checks on it as well. Re-adjust the brakes, check the lug tq, air pressure is good, checked it last week. MO will be first trip in new trailer, should do fine.

Sounds like its coming together! Jon and I have a great curriculum together for you all.

Same here. Meeting the John and WMS next week to do the rundown on the car.

Ordered my helmet cam. Have to stop over to Summit for a new head balaclava and fire resistant undershirt.

Look forward to getting some POV from this beast!

Looking good Mike, know you are anxious to get the season going. Will you be running the "beast" at MO in a few weeks? Will be odd seeing you in porsche vs. stang.

Kinda surprised with the registration. We're 21 days away and still have registration open for DE3/4. Hopefully more will sign up as we get closer. Plan on shaking off winter cob webs Friday, get back into the groove and then have good Sat & Sun sessions.

Anxious to see some of the new 2015 stangs hit the track. Know PAE and POE racing have been working on theirs this winter. PAE will be using a lot of carbon fiber. Will get eyes on it next week when I take my car to them.
