Just me? NICE! My only chance to finish near the front!

Hope to see some of you there. Now I just need to start building my homemade cool-shirt setup! I'm guessing it will be blazing hot up there.

Can't make this one, wife's 40th B-day. I tried talking her into a beautiful day spent at the track followed by a nice dinner at the Willows BBQ, but she wasn't going for it. Have fun.

Dagnabit!!! I was going to make this my first SCCA event but the wife got us a beach front condo in Carlsbad for the week. You'll be racing & I'll be at Legoland

Have fun.

Have fun with the family you guys.

I can't skip out on this weekend, the whole year has gone by and I've only managed to do my SCCA drivers school and one NASA race. This will be my first SCCA race so I'm hoping for a good turnout! Looks like there are 10 SM's signed up so far, I think there will probably be more.

112*F on Friday, 105*F on Saturday, and cooled down to a downright chilly 95*F on Sunday. Car overheated a bit on Saturday so I took a DNF, but Sunday was fine, had a crappy 1st lap but finished 9th out of 12 cars.

Hoping we can get a few more cars out for the next event! I need some more people to race with at the back of the pack!

What rad do you have in there?
Use WaterWetter?
Have the thermostat installed?

I've actually never had overheating problems in the past, usually runs 180-190, though I haven't ever run the car on such a hot day. Probably had something to do with the 140 track temperature and me being a dumbass and drafting too closely on the long straights. Temps were fine during practice and qualifying when I was by myself.

I have the Koyo rad, water wetter, not sure about the t-stat. Whatever Clement had in there when I bought the car is still in there, I'll check.
