I have got some here: http://gcrall.miller-motorsports.com...fldr=NASA+HPDE that my friend took. I haven't looked at all of them, so I don't know if you are there Carl...

Did not make that show, I guess my car is too boring... I'll have to pay Head-on for some, the 80.00 sure seems steep though.

Yeah, he took mostly pictures of cars he dreams about.
VW rabbits and American things with horsepower.

Rabbits huh, and this guy is your friend.... I'll be at T'hill 8/18 testing, i picked up a full sponsorship fom ACT, not bad for a car that has never competed . Anyway, I'm hoping we can put together a cohesive RX gathering at some upcoming events, we could at least pit together, and BBQ . I'll start a thread. Unfortunately Sevenstock, and one of the Oct. events are on the same weekend, So friday/Sat. in Irvine, then tow up to race on sunday, that'll be a crazy weekend to be sure. I'll get some Barrier tape made "Mazdas only". This last event was quite a zoo, what do ya think of all those PRC turbo Porsches??? I could hang with that crazy red one(in your friends pics) til my clutch went away, but I think it was a different driver than the race driver. I guess I'll just have to send Silkworm some cash to get some shots of my cars debut... The winning car in my class(TTA) turned some 1:51xx, and a best of 1:50xx, so I've got some work to do. GNX7 (mark) turned a 1:54xx, congrats mark on the 3rd your first time out in that class. I think if I go out get the tires warm, turn it up to 500hp, crank off some laps, and then turn I back down, that I will be able to handle the heat. Talk to you soon, Carl

Carl, you and that beast of yours should easily run 1:48's at Sears when you get the kinks worked out.

Guess I better get my nitrous hooked up to use on the straightaways to catch Carl .

I hope with more practice at Sears Point (my 2nd time there) and getting used to the car I can rip off some 1:50's next year. I won't make the Oct. 8-9 dates as I'll be at SevenStock.

Any more mods to my car and I'm in Unlimited. Don't want to be there... but considering a TTA car set the record at Infineon for TimeTrial maybe it won't be that bad. Patrick's S4 after talking to John Anderson (TT coordinator) is a fully built dedicated track car that is trailered everywhere. He said there was some bucks in it and built by a shop.

Here's the results from the day. I'm in TTA:

I just want to be the fastest street driven car there and whip up on Griggs' 700hp+ Mustang. That car is quick.

Yep, Rabbits
8-18; that's the Thursday event? I'll be in my cube all day...
My coming weeks are jacked.
I;ve got two weddings and bachelor parties, prepping and testing the new ITA car, as well as logistically plannning our 25 hour effort.
I love the PRC cars! fast and fun.
Pending the cage being done and a new logbook issued, I'll be at Thill in October with the new car.

When did the griggs mustang get 700? Last time I checked with Guy they were around 550...
