Old Man Drift..

Post  Stroker-Porsche on Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:54 pm

Mike here. Been out twice to 5 Flags practice. Really digging it so far, but really don't have much seat time yet. It's a lot harder than it looks. My car seems to love 5-Flags so far. Catastrophic failures both days.

About me: Old man at the track. Got about 15 years on most of you, however I balance my old age with the maturity of a 12 year old. Been doing Road Race and Auto X for the last 6 years, Mostly DE days, still learning. Trying to play with the big boys in ITE this spring. Car goes under the knife in April for rear flares, 335s, and 8 point cage. I like long walks on the beach, candle lit dinners and hanging out at playgrounds wearing a trench coat with a pocket full of lollipops.

^Working on it. I have about another inch of adjustment in the drop links. Guess I'll try stiffer springs. Didn't know I had that much roll still. Harder to tell from inside the car. I'm running 400 front and 250 rear. I'll step up to 600/400 in April.
