ooooh you silly SM'ers and your broken cars :)

i do not miss the days of overly modded/swapped vehicles!  i just missed 44's on my streets, could have gotten it for sure if it was not the first event of the year, i drive very timid for some reason.

So, nobody even mentions  --   "my whole upper body is sore"  ???????????

I at least expected something like:

Maybe you should get a Miata....

Well I didn't say anything because I have driven it before and it's quite the workout.  But maybe lifting some weights is in order.

Agreed Jose...my arms are killing me. Of course i did all 6 of my runs plus 2 fun runs...one in a Miata POS I mean CSP car with no power steering haha...sorry Ed.

That was definitely NOT a power course. I was only 2.5 seconds slower in a Focus SVT on ST tires. Who knows...i might have gone even faster if i had a few more runs. Maybe even beaten my SM time??

On the whole...great event!!! Sweet course and good people. I love WNY region. C U @ SEAD!!!!

PS Thanks a bunch Jose!!! That car is awesome and I feel bad that fewer people will get to enjoy it...unless of course they cough up some $$.

Thanks guys.  Brian, thanks so much for helping me out with the car and driving advise.

I think I found the problem... I think the powersteering pulley is slipping under pressure.  I did an engine wash and noticed it likes to slip very easily from just a bit of water while my son moved the steering. It slipped way too easily.

Thanks again.. see ya all at SEAD...

Hey Dale... the name I gave the course was right.
I called the course the Punisher.... and it sure was.  lol.

I found my power steering fix... going to attempt doing this.

This would be the guy with the before mentioned Focus SVT (named "crop duster by the end of event 7) I'm an official member of SM now due to a supercharger install and I fear for my life against you guys lol. But you guys have one more guy in SM, and I'm going to try my best to keep up.

I screwed up... I have been so busy I lost track of this month already..

Sorry guys.  Hope you had a great time.

I figured I'd bump this thread a little...since Andy was the only one to be able to put 1 run up that was faster than me in an STU car.  You should all be ashamed! ;)

Back from the dead!  Although SM is pretty much a tiny class now...........I'm ready.  SMF index in Pro here I come with an actual semi-competative car I hope.  The thing feels insane for this season.  Fendered FTD machine for sure.
