Porsche 997GT3 -vs- Cayman S @ MSR 1.7cw
I let Bill slide by on the inside and then try to hang with him. He has
150HP more than me, but the Cayman can make up some distance in the
corners. But Bill did have a braking problem going on too.
Walk around of the Noble
Just a quick walk around of my Noble M12 GTO 3R. Just mute it, no sound
other than me walking anyway. I don't do narratives. :)
Porsche 993 Hits the Tire Barrier at MSR during PCA Event
Here is an exciting ride courtesy my Son during a the Mavericks Region DE
at MSR Cresson, Texas. Bryce is going through the transition from the old
track to the new track and looses it. The result is a trip to the tire
barrier.... And some repairs needed on the my 993. Work underway and car
should be back on the track in October.
What a way to learn a lesson..... Good news is sheet metal, control arms
and pride were the only things hurt in the incident.
Cobra eaten alive by Porsche Cayman S
Since Carl Smith and Bobby are such Cobra fans, I had to post this just for
This is a the Driver's Edge Yellow run group at MSR 1.7CCW. This video was
just before they told me that I was catching people too fast and have to
move to red.
The Cobra is fast and has pretty flames. But there are corners most

Nothing special. Laps 4-7 on first day with the DriversEdge at TWS. Only
2nd time out there, just about have the track down enough I can start
fixing the lines more.
MSR TDE 4-5Feb12 1.7 CW - 5 best laps
Not my best times here when it's cold. Got better at Big Bend, didn't
always carry the speed through Ricochet. It was a fun weekend, though, and
it was great catching up with old friends and making new ones.
20140208 Track Day - The Drivers Edge, MSR Cresson 1.7CW, Yellow, Session 1
Car: 2002 Toyota MR2
Engine: Yamaha 2ZZGE w/ Rotrex Supercharger
Tires: 225/50/15 NT01 on 8" wheels
First session on Saturday in the yellow group at Motorsport Ranch Cresson.
I had just changed spring rates this week, so this was a bit of feeling out
of the car. It cured most of the oversteer, but the car was very hairy
under hard braking. I had planned to change compounds, but the pads didn't
come in time.
My line was pretty terrible, some of my worst driving. I'm still not
completely confident in the car, it really needs a proper setup, with a
true corner balance and more dialed-in alignment.
Unfortunately I didn't get to do much more testing, as I broke a valve on
the second session, ending my weekend early. Video by GoPro Hero 3,

1:18.515 lap time @ NASA TT Trial 8 - MSR Cresson 1.7 CCW
This is my fastest lap at MSR Cresson during the NASA Time Trials on March
15th, 2009. The track was very "green" this weekend because of lots of rain
so I was surprised to do this well. I also started losing my tires and you
can hear a lot of squealing going on. Hopefully this video will have sound.
;) With a good track, tires and proper pressures, 1:17s are likely.
