Not yet, I know there was some issues with some of the timing. I will check on it and update tomorrow.

I would say that STI that whooped ass in SU would be considered pretty fast, for a street car.

Tom said his best times were in the 30s (not this weekend) in the RX7. SO I would figure any street car in the low 1:40s would be fast. Break into the 30s and you are running with some very fast race cars. The Grand AM Gt cars are running mid to high 1:20s, DPs are much lower than that.

just commenting or miscommenting that one would expect the times for street cars to be a bit slower than a racecar such as Chucks BWM. Did not mean to give the impression that the TT cars were "slow" just that given that most of us are not as experienced as others and our cars for the most part can be driven on a daily basis ....I thought the times were appropriate given that criteria.

Yes the STI and its driver put a good whooping on us in SU but he did at TGPR too by about the same margin.

I was basing that on what I ran last year. However, TRACK IS DIFFERENT!!! A year older but I had been told Barber had scraped/treated/? the track and it was fast again. I guess not, looking at the winning ITA times (I ran a 1:46.00X last year Sunday Qualifying). Wish I had been there.

I think I ran 1:50 last year so I was 2 seconds slower. Others were commenting on the track being slower. I'm sure the heat didn't help much either. Chuck, that would make your fast lap a 1:48. Right there with the other slow street cars.

history suggests the silver Evo would give the Civic a challenge. the red one may be faster than a civic but won't run long enough to be a concern.

You mad bro? It's obvious you guys don't even lift. Rod is just mad because i've beaten him so bad at every event this year. I don't even know Mr. Fusion. I was simply posting because i'm excited to start track days next year and you guys gotta bust my balls and my car. Whatever helps you guys sleep at night.

I figured lol I wasn't taking anything to heart. My posts are generally sarcastic. I was going to but I have one tire that is patched. Doesn't worry me at autox since it's low speeds, but I'm not sure about on track at speed.

Do the PDX Heath. TGPR isn't that fast of a track so the loads are probably less than an AutoX run.
