GT live at VIR lap battle

Well it was a wet weekend I only got TWO dry track runs all the others the track was wet or muddy (from the drifters).
I fought traction all weekend I ran the boost controller on low (9 psi) except for once. Getting off the curves and on the throttle almost always resulted in the ass end breaking loose. I also didn't break nearly hard enough I was worried about skidding but never did. On the big track at VIR I can get the tires to rub on VERY hard tight turns but It never rubbed once the entire weekend, so I know there was a lot of speed left.

Cars were pitted against cars of the same manufacturer There was only one other mazda there I think I beat him by about 5 seconds he was running a basicly stock MX6 I think he actually got a few dry runs in though.

A win is a win, I won first place. We had the option of letting Tarzan Yamada drive our cars with us in it or out of it, needless to say I declined both.

I did however take them up on a ride in his cyber evo. If you have never seen the cyber evo, it is a fully preped right hand drive race car sporting over 700 hp.
I wish could put into words how it felt. The only thing I could compare it to would be a ride at an amusement park ther are constant G forces from the front and to the sides. It was just incredable. The evo would slide just a bit and then take off like a rocket.

I was there. Talked with you about your FC. I also saw your run with Tarzan driving the Cyber Evo. Amazing. The speed and control he has over that car is crazy. Other then the weather i'd say it was a pretty good weekend.
