Look forward to talking to him about his impressions when he returns.

Good luck!

Elliot's usual drive has been having some issues, but I'm sure they'll get it sorted out. (May have already, actually)

Case in point, my car was quicker at the last couple events. Still need to catch that RTR FR-S (and driver) though

Max, mind if I come say hi at the match tour?

Max,

Not sure those rear swaybar braces are legal for STX. I didn't run mine because I was told by some that they weren't allowed. You might want to check into it. STX should be an interesting class next year with the addition of so many twins.

EDIT, NM posted before finishing reading the thread.

SCCA St. George Utah - Match Tour.

I was running three year old Dunlop Z1s, which felt great in the heat, but they didn't like the cold. I really struggled in class competition with getting any heat in them. I won, but I was not happy with the times the car was running. I also found out afterwards that I forgot to take out the spare tire and tools from the trunk!

For the LCQ, I used some tire warmers and on my first run, the car was sketchy but not terrible. I put in a decent time, but for the second run I knew I would go much faster. I might of done that, but I forgot to turn off the traction control! I tried turning it off mid run, but that didn't work!

However, my first run was enough to squeak in the Challenge which ran in the afternoon. With the hotter weather, the tires came alive and I was running almost two seconds quicker than my class runs.

I won the bracket and made it to the final four, where I lost to Jeff Kiesel. With the Match Tour format using PAX, I really stood no chance if he stayed clean, which he did. I did win the 3rd place runoff against Shelly Monfort and I won around $300.


Here's my run from the final pair in the LCQ bracket, which moved me to the final four. With a one run shootout, you need to be clean, so I was trying to stay off the cones a little more than I normally do. I was thrilled to make it that far, and really happy that the car was doing such great times in its first big event.

Great driving, Max! The times were really dropping on Sunday!

Congrats on the class win and a great run at the shootout!
