Looks like you were pulling some serious cornering Gs! How'd you do?

Thanks. Yes, you're right, so much in fact that I was getting a little fuel starvation in one of the corners, and that was with a 1/4 tank of gas.

This was a Test & Tune event so it wasn't run like a real event. However, I was top 5 FTD and was consistently running faster times then than BS and AS. April 17th is our first real points event so it'll be interesting to see how I do when *all* the fast guys show up.

Yeah, I found that out too. So now I always try to fill up with a full tank when autoXing. That probably helps with balance of the car too. It almost seems like traction control is still on when you get fuel starvation. BTW, hows that clutch stop treating you Andy?

Hey Mark!! Clutch stop is working well. I have it set about 1/2" below the clutch engagement point due to the starter switch. Thanks again for the great deal!!
