Leary's has worked with our CMC group in the past. Can you contact them to see if they can provide you with any insight on what you have or what you should be running? They would likely also be able to check your spring rates for you and be able to provide anything you might need.

Nice mic off the miata. Who collects contact forms? Do you always race with the SM class?
Good job and good racing.

Scott Leary's had crossed my mind, but they are Denver. I got smart and asked the roundy round crowd about this and apparently there's a guy 15 minutes from my house who can check my spring rates as they're unfortunately not etched into the ends of the spring either.

Thanks Randy. The race director of the day will demand/collect the forms. Used to be Dave Balingit, but lately it's been Dave Dirks. Don't worry, they'll hunt you down at tech. :lol: We used to race in thunder with AI and SU (roundy round cars mostly), but the last 2 events we haven't quite had enough of everyone to have our own group. AI was dead last year, and this year there are 3 AI cars running (though 1 is working through HPDE ranks at the moment in a fully prepped car). I think turnout will be higher for Pueblo so we may be back to running in the Thunder group again. If there is a silver lining to running with Lightning, it's that we got an extra race out of the weekend by having 2 groups as opposed to 3.

Good plan. Etching the spring rate into the end of the springs is a really good idea!

Totally different level of confidence with this track, totally different flow too. I also wasn't as strong at the end here as I was at the last one. I did make my first man pass instead of waiting for something to be handed to me.

Thanks, it was nerve wracking in the car. I was convinced I'd throw it away somehow and I almost did when Shawn passed me going into 1. I can't wait for the mylaps data to see how consistent I was up to that point. Could you see me waving my fist every time I crossed the line? :lol:

Yes I could.

You have to remind yourself to relax and focus, which can sometimes be as useful telling yourself you need some sleep when your staring at the alarm clock at 3AM and you have to be up at 6AM for work. It helps if you have a positive reinforcement phrase like "smooth is fast", or something else that works for you to fall back on when things get exciting.

Mine was "it's just an open lapping day, it's just an open lapping day". So yes, I was definitely trying to soothe myself and ignore that pesky rear view mirror.
