Pertinents and such.

I hear Todd's going for a record of 6 or so blown engines in row ??

Are we having some kind of pool on when he's blowing up next ?

Maybe give him the $ if he doesn't blow up this weekend for a job well done ??

Cool, never run T-Hill backwards before. Looks like my new suspension hardware will get some jump testing.

Where did people get the RAM mounts for their phones. Apple store? Best Buy? Any other creative ideas on how to mount it without using duct tape or spending a dime?

 

Sorry, and I know I'm not alone on this, but this mandated app is ridiculous, inefficient, and unnecessary. I look forward to questioning its capabilities during the drivers meeting along with several others that have banded together to form an angry mob over this minor yet annoying issue. I already have two screens in front of my face on track, I don't need or want a third. Soon enough I'll be driving with an Oculus Rift on my face. Rant over...

 

On a more positive note, I think we'll have some great racing this weekend  :crazy2:  Who's going?

And, I mean that in the meanest, most derogatory way possible.

There really should be a "f-ing" in there somewhere.

Hey Johnny , I decided it would be cheaper to just stay home and run my car with no oil for a while sitting in the driveway...

Actually I"ve been busy moving so will be out of commission until the NCRC event at Laguna in May,,

I hear team SISU is going to be very fast this weekend!!!

Matt the Spotter site said Amazon.

I think I'm doing Velcro maybe on the steering wheel.

I think the rule is you need to have it, not sure if in the trunk is ok? :)

 

Todd, Sorry I won't see you, until Laguna,

 

Somebody save me a spot.

LOL "the spotter app is mandatory in all racecars" good catch Johnny. Looks like the iphone will be glued to the passenger footwell for this race. See you there

Yeah and the rule doesn't say you have to have Verizon either.. so it should work part of the way around the track with ATT

I need to get my screen saver to stop working.

I can't do my password while I'm driving.

I suggest "1"---that way it will only bug you for 60 seconds.

Fun hot weekend.
Spotter ap was interesting, It didn't turn off/sleep, had some delay at times, some got dependent on it. Drivers meeting was "flags are 1st and spotter is to support".
 
Good time, good people, nice meeting you Rusty, briefly.
 
Always enjoy Llihrednuht

 

Any good video ??

Did anyone get DQ'd for running over the line at turn 1??

 

Can we get a reserved parking spot in the SM spots if we sign up early??

Didn't engoy parking in the back 40.
