Week one comments: It was a good first race there were some concerns about the brakes and a decision will be made before the next race. I was a little disappointed with the turn out, one racer will be leaving us and another should be joining us next week, i hope to find another 6 to 8 racers by next week and could really use everyone’s help to fill out the series, thanks!

Sorry part upgrade intake was unclear, the game calls the air filter an intake when you select it for an upgrade, I meant intake manifold and throttle body which i have now clarified.

Save me a spot bud!

Crap, just realized I will be out of town 2 of the weeks. This would be great If i could make more dates.

This sounds like it will be pretty cool. Ill jump in

I would like in.

Missed week 1, and may not be able to make all of the rest, pesky job. Memorial Day next week, so would like to join the fun if there’s still room.
Thanks,
Rebel Whitey

Thanks for the clean racing and patience. I’ll try to practice this week.

Any tips on the Camaro setup would be greatly appreciated. I still couldn’t eek out below 2:40.

I’ll try to get more people to come join us. About the brakes though, I had no problems with them in my Camaro. Maybe its my technique, but I didn’t seem to have any brake fade or unreasonable locking. Overall, I thought it was really fun, can’t wait for next week!

I’ve got a guy named Semmble down to race. He may not be able to make two races later in june, but he’s down for now!
