Well, I went to the SCCA DE yesterday and had the best time ever!!! I love my car 10 times more than before! It was incredible. I had Brian Hair as my instructor and he helped me a ton in pushing the car and understanding the limits. I am completely hooked. It had been 15 years or so since I was on the track and by the end of the day I was very comfortable and was cut loose solo with no issues.

Can't wait for the next DE. Need to go on the PCA site and sign up right away. See you guys out there. Thanks for the encouragement!

Stu

Ended up leaving the sway bars in my AX settings and the car was very neutral and predictable. Started off with tire pressures at 31 front and 34 rear cold and ended up with 36 front and 37 rear hot after playing with it.

The RE-11's were much better than I had expected and will stay with them for now. They got pretty sticky to my surprise. I am sure I have a long way to go getting more out of the car but the learning will be the fun part. I am thrilled with how capable the car is.

I cleaned the car up today but can't wait to get it dirty again soon. Thanks again for the gentle shove back on the track. See you guys soon!

Superb! I am so glad you had such a positive experience. I am looking forward to seeing you (and myself ) at Summit at the end of October.

I am signed up for the October end DE. I hope that I signed up in time and get in. Feel free to offer to be my instructor!

I think I will put my Pagid yellow pads back on for that weekend. Maybe they will even change color!

Be careful hanging around Brian, he will have you running the OLOA in 2012 with Brian as your co driver .
