Here is the in car Video from Road Atlanta 2 weeks ago.

I stalled the car on the start and fell to 20th from my 5th place starting spot. The standing start cracked the diff case and by lap 20 all the diff fluid was gone. Blew the rear end big time with no oil.

enjoy.

Wow!!! :eek: What a thrill ride! It's too bad that you cracked the diff because it was a fantastic run! Gotta love Road Atlanta as well.

Lou -- What's your favorite track?

Were those Vipers just in the race to be moving road blocks? ;)

Great run while it lasted....

Thank you guys,

The fast viper finished 4th. When I broke, I was catching him by about 1/2 sec per lap. I think he was sandbaging to get some weight off. they run a 8.3 liter (508 cu in) engine to our 6 liter (366cu in) engine. We have to wind our engine up to stay with them. I would rather run the 7 liter LS7 engine but they won't let us.

The bad finish will allow me to take the 45 pounds of "rewards weight" off the car. I had to carry 45 pounds extra for Atlanta for the 3rd place finish the race before at St Petersburg. It now comes off.

The Papis Cadillac will add 75 pounds for the win and the 4th place Viper adds 30 pounds for 4th. Both of the fast Porsche will take off 60 pounds each for Mid Ohio. That is the rewards weight system that they have in place. It gets complicated but for Mid Ohio Cadillac is bringing in Heinricy who will not carry any weight since it is his first race of 05.

The Corvette is a great car. I personally think they restrict us too much. We carry almost the same size restrictor as the Viper which has 10 cyl and 8.3 liters.

thanks and See You at the races.

Awesome!!
