About the race, I had fun. I also got proof positive that I need to install my limited slip differential. First run was good, but a bit tentative. Second run was better, even though I botched the 1-2 shift off the start. Third run I got major wheelspin through the opening obstacles, but rather than back off and get it under control as I did in the first two runs, I kept my foot in it just to see how it would play out. There's a bright orange stripe on my right rear sidewall as evidence of the results <grin>.
With the turbo, I can choose to compete in either E-Modified, with a prepared Acura NSX, and whatever full blown racecar Al Wicht shows up with - or in Street Modified, a local class with about 6 competitors today, including a 300HP 18psi boosted MR2. Hmmmm.... I class myself differently, I look around for people who are actually racing on street tires, Yokohama A509s seem to be the favorites - I was running on the Dunlop SP8000s today, though looking at the wear they sustained, I think I'll switch over to the cheaper 509s in the future. Compared to that field, I did rather well with my 1:02.975. For reference, Darrin Disimo was turning in mid 50s on BFG R1s in his B Stock Miata - but with Darrin it's not just tires, he's a hell of a driver too.
