I love the brake fluid G-meter.

Nobody can say you left anything on the table before shipping out. Good luck man!

Thanks guys!

We had 10 cars in TTS this weekend. I was able to get 2nd on Saturday and was only .2 seconds behind 1st, a GT3. I was able to edge out David White, the grand am driver for Bimmer World by .2 seconds. He ended up in 3rd. Sunday I had some bad luck and ended up in 3rd. I'll get more into that later. It really kind of sucked, David and Alex(the GT3) had a great battle that ended with David winning in the last session by like .05. I'm driving from TN back to GA right now, then back to TN tonight or in the morning, and then to TX as soon as I'm back in TN... and then back to TN at the end of the week. I'll do a full run down with more pictures and video's when I get a minute to breath. Really fun weekend and a great way to end my year. 8)

I'm headed there the end of november, kinda nervous. I crewed for a race team that shared a weekend with an hpde, and there were 5 or 6 totaled cars in the parking lot :/
My buddy is a spec Miata champion, and even he has done some serious damage on the walls in the esses. I've got an ls1 FD as well, but I have been leaning towards taking my ITA 240sx instead. It doesn't look scary at all on my 3.5" phone screen lol
Any advice of tricky/slippery areas?

You'll be fine. Just work your way into it. I'm assuming you are doing an HPDE. Listen to your instructor and listen to your car. If you are more experienced and aren't in the green group, try to hook up with some one and do a lead/follow to learn the line a little faster... or even get a ride with someone. Road Atlanta has walls all around it, but if you respect it, you two will get along just fine Aside from fluid getting dumped on the track, grip is really good at Road Atlanta and fairly easy on tires and brakes.

BTW, I'm pretty sure I recognize your SN from norotors?

Yeah I'm on there. And I'm an instructor with chin. Last year at VIR, they let me go out on my own first session, then put a check out instructor in the car second session to make sure I was solo ready. It'll probably be the same here too, but not too sure yet. I always get nervous with new tracks, but 2 laps in and I feel like I was born there. I guess this time there is a little added anxiety just because I personally know a great driver who wadded it up there.
