2011 Texas Tour

Well the 2011 Texas Tour has come and gone.  We went in with high hopes off our test day at Royal Purple Raceway, but the race didn’t go as well as planned.  The same issue keeps cropping up, an unweighting of the inside rear tire which is preventing us from putting power down anytime the car is under a high-G load (which is most of the time on an autocross course).  Todd barely got the win and I struggled with adjusting my driving style, falling to 4th.

GPS data and some pictures to follow.  In the meantime, check out the “work in progress” paint @ Mohflo’s Photography site.  We’re CP 96 and 196.

More work on the car to come.  Our new Goodyears didn’t arrive in time for the Tour, but they’ll be going on soon for a test day back to back with our old shocks to see if we can’t sort out this issue!


UPDATE 2 APRIL:  Trackmaster Data has been downloaded and is available in my public Dropbox folder.  Note that the split marker for the start isn’t quite right.  One of these days I’ll figure out how to edit the markers in Google Earth for more accuracy.  I am driver 1 (Runs 1, 3, 5, 7) and Todd is driver 2 (Runs 2, 4, 6, 8).  Enjoy!
