First Track Day
Flashback Friday to the first time you ever took your car out on a track day. How did it feel? Let me share with you my experience.
I got my Litespeed Racing wheels last April. I have had a lot of fun with them. They weigh 14.4 pounds per corner for the 9"x19" wheel and so really dominate in the unsprung weight department. Unsprung weight is always best to eliminate if at all possible. It allows for quicker transitions and is more responsive to any inputs steering or otherwise.

Everyone has their issues they need to work through when doing a big build. A simple tune is a completely different experience than a full build. I’ve talked about my build before and discussed a lot of the positives. More positives than negatives have resulted from my build and I’ll talk about more of them in future posts.
Fastest TT RS in the world
180 MPH. That was the goal to reach this last half mile event at No Fly Zone put on by Omega Motorsport.
Big SoCal Euro
Big SoCal Euro. Good times at Qualcomm Stadium.
I love speed! There I said it. The faster I go the faster I want to go. It's an addiction. I love the thrill of it, the exhilaration of full throttle acceleration for a full half a mile. This last weekend was my best speed and my best time in the 1/2 mile. It was more fun to run that quickly than it has been before.
As I stated in a recent blog post, its amazing how much horsepower it takes to go faster. I'm not talking about elapsed time here, I'm referring to top speeds. These have been easily demonstrated in my half mile events. I've tried running the half mile stock, with a stage 2 91 octane tune, with stage 2 E85 tune and with a hybrid turbo E85 setup. Let me explain.
Half Mile Racing
Speed is addictive. I've now gone to 3 different Shift S3ctor events and one Omega Motorsport event. These events are all half mile in length and are less formal than a 1/4 mile drag race. I find them more enjoyable to participate in. Each time I've gone, my car has had different modifications and has performed better and gotten faster.
No Fly Zone
Life is all about adventures. That can take many forms, travel being one of them. In this case I got to experience three different adventures at once, racing with friends, travel and some photography. Just trying to pack it all in made for a great little trip of a few days.
