Yo Gabe!

You can really move on that 09 6R but that 6R is no match for the 10R powah in the straights!

jg2oec

I think this was the winning shot

2pow2mr

I had SOOOOOOO much fun doing the mock race, even though y'all backed off the throttle a bit in some sections. . .

BIG THANK YOU TO Pam (VMAXGIRL) FOR THE SUPER AWESOME SHOTS!

Fixed!

Just bustin' your chops, you and the rest of the licensing class did a great job out there, it was fun to get out there with you all!

You might want to pick a fight you can win. Gabe sent me his data from his last endurance race. He and his team ran 1:49-1:51's on a 600 for about 60 laps. When he's serious, he's 157 on the front straight, real speed. He's pulling about 1.7 g's in the serious turns. The average sports car is lucky to hit 1 g with factory rubber.

You did great on the 10. You were handling the 1000 power very well. If you ever get your 636 back together you may have even more fun.

you gonna be at msrh next weekend? I remember running with you last saturday at TWS (Texas World Speedway). You were running pretty good...balking me in the turns somewhat and then using that 10R POWAH to pull my 636 on the straights. If you're gonna be at msrh, we'll have to hook up... I just got a gopro camera, and if you're running your cam, we should be able to get some good footage...can't wait!

Yeah, I know. I'm just bragging on Gabe. His data was pretty remarkable.

good luck in the rain today !
The statement wasn't too off. They are very experienced riders so it's not like they had to try hard to get ahead of all the prov nov's. I am fully aware they weren't giving it their all out there All I was saying was once they were ahead, I could see them let off the throttle a bit so I would pass them back to simulate a "race"

But go ahead and ruin all the fun I was trying to have with this.
