SCCA PDX event at Gateway Int'l

SCCA PDX event at Gateway Int'l on 8/29/2009. Instructed and did some tire testing. Ran a few sessions with my street tires just for the times/data and did a few sessions with a set of Hoosier R6's just for ridealongs. Also had 2 students; so was on track a total of 9 20min sessions!

Fresh set of rubber arrives - Hoosier A6's

Fresh new set of Hoosier A6's just arrived. Really interested to try them out as compared to the R6's I have been running.

Last week I received a new set of Hawk brake pads for the rear; backups!

I am still awaiting a set of front rotors en route from and we'll be all stocked up with backups!

Double NASA TTB wins & Track Record @ BlackHawk!

First trip ever to BlackHawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit, IL. Event started out rainy, ended with a heat index of around 105! I ended up with wins both days in TTB and slaughtered the class record by about 5 seconds!

I'd like to say thanks to AMS Performance for an awesome tune that held up under the grueling conditions. I'd also like to extend a formal welcome to AMSOIL as they are now officially helping to support my car as well. I ran their engine oil and brake fluid for this event. I was extremely impressed with the AMSOIL brake fluid! Also thanks to Hawk Brake and Hoosier tires for their generosity towards NASA.

Lots of rain and lightning on race day meant a delay to the start. The first session was downpour filled and I had nothing but Hoosier's. I ended up with just 2 dry sessions after lunch to fire out a lap. Unfortunately I had to start from the rear of the grid since my only posted time sucked (R6's on a damp track from earlier in the day). So passing basically 10-15 cars in 8 laps I was able to squeeze out a 1:22.5 which actually broke the class record. The next and last session of the day I got in some clean laps and posted a 1:21.1 and took the TTB win and better the class record.

Aided by brand new stickered R6's, a small suspension tweak and my 2nd day of running this brand new track I ended up with a 1:19.3 to win TTB again and bettered the class record!

Speedcasttv - NASA TT Video

SpeedcastTV was at the NASA GL/MW Crossover event in May at Putnam Park in Indiana. They shot some good footage on the progression of NASA from their HDPE program, to TT, to the race groups. Here's the vid about TT; check out the sweet blue Evo!

Welcoming new sponsor - AMSOIL!

To help better protect the hard working Evo 4G63 and to help out with the high oil temps I have been experiencing all year, I have decided to change to a higher grade of oil.

If you're looking to place an order, check out AMSOIL.
