Wow, what happened Jonathan?
Did you rebuild your existing engine or get a whole new one?
Looking forward to running with you and since you'll be breaking in your motor I'll finally be able to pass you!   ;)

The engine didn't grenade or anything, but the rings have started to give up the ghost. The engine is smoking more than normal and after the last outing to ACS earlier in the year, the car just doesn't have the zip it used to.  After 8 years as a race motor it is time to freshen it up and give it some new legs again.  :)

I've only been away from the track for a week... But November seems so far away! :)

Any events coming up sooner than this?

Ben,
I would love to plan on this event. I'm not sure if I'll be able to drive with my injury yet. I'll have to wait and see how I feel as it gets closer. Either way I'll be there if only to take pics. 8)

Hope you get better so you can drive, not as much fun watching. In either case, glad you will be there.

Ben,

I'm so bummed out by that date with West coast as I have to be in Phoenix that weekend.
also, Speed ventures is at Fontana that weekend, normally they schedule the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Thinking about going to Buttonwillow with Speed Ventures on Oct 19-20.  haven't been there in 4 years and that was my only time so I really don't know that track.  Why don't you plan on that, I think early registration is $150/day

Jonathan,

How about you at BW?  Guessing you know that track well and I'd appreciate help.

Mike

Sure thing Mike.  Have extensive amount of track time at Buttonwillow.  Send me a PM if you are going and I will see about getting out there to help you out.

I'm signed up for both days and my son, Mikey, is signed up for the Fast Lane Racing School on the Streets of Willow that same weekend. If anyone wanted to start tracking their car, the Fast Lane school is a great way to start learning.

Hey Guys, if anyone needs anything brought to the track or needs help at the event, feel free to call me. We will be there with Steve Dana's GT2 Comp Coupe and Greg Scilley's ACRX.

This will be a well attended Viper event, for those of you that have never had your car on the track, this is a great venue. Willow Springs is made for the Viper, it begs for Hp and does not beat up your car. With all that tire and torque, you can never see the limit of your car safely on the street. West Coast has a beginner group, so don't feel you will be pressured.

For you track rats, you might consider an asymmetrical alignment on your car for Willow Springs, its all right turns and is really hard on tires. With an asymmetrical alignment, your car will handle better and run faster.

As always, Gen 2-3 guys, your engine oil must be filled just barely over the full line and I strongly suggest a competition oil pan. Make sure your brake fluid has been changed in the last 2 years  and check your brake pads and tires.

For this event we offer a free 60 point vehicle inspection and tech sheet for the event.

Dan,
I'll be bringing my car in next Wednesday to get tech'd and oil change. I would like to try the Big Willow specific alignment too.
Thanks
