Viper Days - Viper Racing League - Friday the 13th Practice Session at Hallett - 8/13/10

Friday the 13th really came into play today. This was my first practice session on the first day of the event. My personal goal for the weekend was to be in the low 1:19s which I figured I could be there by Sunday. So, I go out at 9 AM this Friday on used 6+ session tires just to refamiliarize myself with the track. I notice after a lap or two that I pulled off a 1:20.0. "Hmm..." I thought to myself. I may be able to get into the low 1:19s on my first session of the weekend rather than having to wait 2 more days. I also thought to myself, "Maybe with new tires I might be able to get into the 1:18s!" Me, being impatient you see, went for it. Well, after a couple more laps my plans were dashed; dashed to Hell! And, my car was trashed. Fortunately, it's just body parts and I'll be back on track in a few weeks. It will take longer for my ego to mend, though. :) For some reason, my rear camera wasn't working. I wish it had been. The view from the rear when going into the tire wall would have been cool... I've watched the crash many times. I've received several opinions about why it happened. Here's what I think... Coming into turn 8, it was normal to have the backend get a little loose. It did on my previous laps so I expected it this time too. However, this time, notice how the car get so upset going over the curbing. It's worse on the crash lap than other laps. I also took more curb on the crash lap than previous laps. I think the backend started coming around and I attempted to coutersteer out of it but the car was too upset and just didn't respond. If I'm wrong, let me know what you think. We got the car back on track later the same day. However, the hood pins must have been weakened during the crash. So, coming around turn 1 the hood popped open, crashed into my windshield, broke over my roof, and broke out my rear glass. Friday the 13th just isn't my day...

Mustang crashes in front of Viper at Sonoma Raceway
This was my maiden voyage to Sonoma Raceway in the Viper, tracking with a friend that was GoProing the session. At 3:00, I pass him and come into the picture. At 4:00, it gets exciting as I begin to close in on the orange Bondurant Mustang. I was taking my time, and couldn't figure out why the track was so damned slippery. I figured that my tires must have been heat-cycled out as I had no grip. As we enter the esses, suddenly the reason why became clear, as a fine mist hit my windshield. It turns out that the Mustang was leaking fluid right in front of me. Next thing I know, he slips in his own fluid and smashes into the wall at speed. You can see the spray of fluid just before his ass end steps out. Thankfully he was ok but went to the hospital as a precaution. His car was absolutely totaled.

Ratcheting Wrenches
See review: Subscribe to my free newsletter: Craftsman introduces two new innovations to their line of ratcheting wrenches that will clear up some space in the toolbox. The Craftsman Universal Ratcheting Wrench 7-piece Set features a universal tooth design on the ratcheting box end that works on six different types of fasteners. The Craftsman Ratcheting Open End Wrench 4-piece Set boasts Craftsman's patented open-ended ratcheting design on both ends, giving the user two different sized ratcheting wrenches in one tool. The Craftsman Universal Ratcheting Wrench combines a universal tooth design that grips six different types of nuts and bolts, including six-point, 12-point, partially-rounded, external TORX, square and spline, and a ratcheting box end -- all in one. The ratcheting box end is great to loosen and tighten nuts and bolts in hard to reach places where picking up the wrench to turn the fastener is not an option. The user can also flip the wrench around to use a reinforced open end that reduces tip spread under heavy load to prevent rounding the corners of fasteners. The grip of the wrench is a thick, rounded beam that is easy to grasp and provides comfort and strength under high torque. The matte surface finish provides a non-slip grip for excellent control and high contrast markings, making the size identification easy. The set comes with a reusable caddy, which can be hung on pegboard or tucked neatly away in a tools storage drawer, and weighs 2.5 pounds. The Craftsman Universal Ratcheting Wrench 7-piece Set is offered in both inch (#21028) and metric (#21030). SAE wrench sizes include 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 11/16 and 5/8 inch. Metric sizes include 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17 millimeter. The Craftsman Universal Ratcheting Wrench 7-piece Set retails for $49.99. The Craftsman Ratcheting Open End Wrench 4-piece Set combines the speed of ratcheting with the access of the open end wrench. The ratcheting open end wrench features Craftsman's patented tooth design on each end, allowing the user to turn nuts and bolts without lifting the tool off the fastener, making jobs faster and easier. The traditional jaw shape allows the user to turn even the most damaged nuts and bolts, and the jaw tips are great for grabbing hard-to-reach fasteners. Each wrench features two different sizes of jaw openings, giving the user eight common sized wrenches and the convenience of knowing that the user has the right size for the job. The set comes with a reusable caddy. The Craftsman Ratcheting Open End Wrench 4-piece Set is offered in inch (#21936) or metric(#21937). SAE set sizes include 5/16 x 3/8, 7/16 x 1/2, 9/16 x 5/8 and 11/16 x ¾ in. Metric set sizes include 8 x 10, 13 x 14, 15 x 16 and 17 x 19 milimeter. The Craftsman Ratcheting Open End Wrench 4-piece Set retails for $24.99. All Craftsman hand tools have a lifetime guarantee and are available at or at Sears stores nationwide.
