FD's took top spots in SSM and XP.

My XP vids...

East course:
West course:

I was pretty lucky to get ahead in XP, given that my primary competition (awesome S/C Lotus Elise by Fred Zust) ended up having transmission issues earlier in the weak and was left with not so great gear ratios.


SSM battle was pretty great with 4 different FD's fighting it out. Carter Thompson pulled out the win. While the cars are all black FD's with giant wings, they are all different under the hood.
Erik -- 3 rotor with GT40
Carter -- 2 rotor with small Precision turbo
Jake -- 2 rotor with GT35
Brian/Dan -- 2 rotor with 99specs (I think)

Way to go Andy; incredible win. Nice to see how it's done in the vids. You're tranny seems dialed-in since you remained in the sweet spot between 4.5 and 8.5 KRPM the entire run.

Even more amazing to hear you had to borrow Carter's SSM ride to keep your lead on day2.

Congrats to Teresa for another sensational podium finish also.

Very nice. Those courses are really long, looks like a good time.
BTW, that new exhaust really is quiet.
