Here's one more... of my first Super Laps. Nothing quite like moving a 10,000 lb barrier with a 4,500 lb car... hehehe.

Oh yea... after watching my vids again... it's very clear to me I NEED 3.73s! The 3.08s in there ain't cutting it.

Dude that was the same barrier I was standing on top of when I took a lot of pictures at the last Superlap. Doh! I'm glad I wasn't out there, or you woulda had a Latka windshield suprise.

I remember that day too. haha

I also remember the new guy in the white vette. He would never let me pass him. He would pull away from me (of course) on the straight, but by the time we got to the chicane I was right behind him. Then after the sweeper, he's off again. This went on for several laps.

I politely offered some helpful advice on the correct line to take through the turns so he could go faster because my little 4 banger should not be able to keep up with a vette, but I don't think he listened. I think he was upset that a little truck was tailing him the whole time.

too bad you guys didn't have a jump or something to catch air.

in California, I used to get my celica airborne all the time. the second celica was better on the landing. anybody else used to catch air in their cars?

here in Hawaii, I went off the road and took a jump with all my work tools in my truck. I spend the rest of the day sorting out my tools like an idiot.

The old Nimitz onto H-1 hump was awesome before they smoothed it out.

1984 Ford Tempo GLX 5 speed baby! We used to jump that beyotch back in San Diego...Black Mountain Road (before, of course, they ripped it up and made it straight and flat). 45mph was the magical takeoff speed.
