7 FF's was a good show. hopefully the rest of them will fill up the grid IF the track is still open.

Watching from the chicane, I could see you and Turolla waiting for the green. looked like Turolla had a nice jump on you...then I saw you down at turn-2. watching you braking for the chicane is crazy...everytime I see you charging, looks like you're gonna over shoot it. Egmar did it once trying to keep up with turolla and went right into the runoff - or lack of.

You should see it from the driver's perspective! Especially that time in the second race when I passed Egmar on the outside of turn 2; when I got to the chicane the brake pedal went almost all the way to the floor and I thought I was a gonner. Pfew!

haha...I seen that. Egmar hard charges the chicane a lot. Egmar had no choice when you were inside entry of the chicane...either he let you go or he'd be pushed out, and into the run off - again!

brakes are good chris i mean seems like no brakes = spin again and again. but at least your setup is good to win the race as long as it only 10 laps and only a single race

We bled the brakes yesterday.... there was alot of air in the rear, but not too much up front. Also one of the pads was loose to the point it had started dragging against the hat and I need fo find out what's up with that. All of a sudden I am inspired that there may be more unexplored potential with the brake system!

it rides like a cadilac, drives like a bus and is pretty much the opposit what you could want for sportscar racing, but it goes like hell!
