Not sure embedded works here?

Looks like fun. What kind of tires? I thought we had a nice pad (we do), but could do a lot more with that much room. Is it asphalt or concrete?

Cheers.

Thanks for that. I clicked the "youtube" button on the top, so i would think it would've worked. Oh well.

I'm running 13x8 fronts and 13x10 rears, in the hoosier R25B.

I bought some 10s for the front and 12s for the rear and some good year R160's to help with the traction issues.

Its asphalt. Its actually the state police training grounds for MA. You can see the cop cars as i approach the tower on the left.

I have run there in my NSX. I have yet to try the Hodgepodge there though.

Consider an event with COM, http://www.comscc.org. They just did an event at the new track in Palmer Ma, they also run Thompson just over the border in CT. You can probably read about these events in their forum...

I figured that was some hoosier traction going on. Looks like your passenger was having fun....
We also race on the local police training pad (have to reset their course after every event).

Which engine/trans do you have? If a camaro trans, I am surprised you are starting in 1st (mine is uselessly low)

Cheers.

Ah ok. I've the same setup with 3.08 rear gears and 23" tall tires. Curious how the gearing will work at autoX as I haven't had it on course yet.
Cheers.
