Peru! smf
« on: July 04, 2009, 08:19:15 pm »
running the clutch lsd is just awesome.  it makes sooooo much difference.

ran smf and did 1st place today before it rained.  my last run was fast but lost control. i need better shocks!!  too much transitional forces going on. its killing me from doing fast transitions.

course tomorow is pretty much a race track.  should do well.

pushed it on the first run but screwed up the slalom.  decided to keep it clean and easy... took the easy win! :D

It was a blast!

That course must have favored your car pretty heavily with all the power you have :)

Nice job Jose!

Garick, I'd bet that the legendary grip levels at Grissom had more to do with the Z06 success than the course design.  The grippier the site, the better it can put down all that power.
