It was fun to take a new car out to Daytona.  Needs an LSD bad to stand a chance in T4.

arent all T4 cars allowed LSD?

Hey Derrick, Thanks for the push on lap 2.  The car was a good idea for Daytona.  It was so much faster than my Miata in a straight line.  That push dropped a little over a second on that section too.  Sorry I couldn't get to your bumper to return the favor.  I need to get time to edit video and I can show you what the car looked like from the outside through the infield.

Allowed yes, budget to get a good one made no, I am exploring the other ways....

The car has a decent amount of power but really needs some good suspension to stand a chance.  Glad I got you a boost, seems like everyone was afraid to push people and they would rather fight it out then move up into podium positions.

The lack of pushing was odd.  I had spoken to Strickland about it and he was the only real receptive one of the bunch.  I just didn't have the power to help sadly.  After watching the SM and SRF races how could anyone not want to push/get pushed at that track.

We had fun in the B-Spec race pushing as well, unfortunately I was stuck in the middle between groups so there was no one to push or be pushed by :(
