    Heres a few shots I got of the car...including the carbon fiber interior. The car is such a beast. What's even more amazing than the car, though, is how well Andy drives it. It's amazing how talented he is.

    All for now until we have more time to edit our stuff after the race with incredible action all day. All the photo of the run group can be found:

    I was in the White run group -

    I wish they would have an action shot of me being in front of the zr-1. Oh yeah - That car is just beautiful.

    How much? lol That engine looks very similar to stock, kinda. That hood doesnt look to be too modified to accept that intake and the support brace above the radiator doesnt appear to be lower, other than the engine looking like it is set back about 7 inches further than stock, why couldnt we run this setup?

    Here's a shot of my V. I had a great day. Thankfully I had no incidents. My rotors for OC Autosports performed flawlessly. My QA1/Ground Control/Hotchkis setup kept me planted solidly and grippy GoodYear GS-D3 inspired confidence. I let my instructor do a few laps with my car. He confirmed that my setup was top notch and solid. This was my first track event. In the beginning, it was hard trying to achieve the perfect race line. Hell, I didn't even know what an apex was. (Yeah, I said it, ) By the second and third sessions, I started to get it. By the fourth and fifth sessions, I was nailing perfect laps consistantly and at fast speeds. In the morning, being the slower car, I allowed many to pass. In the afternoon, I passed a few and only a few were able to pass me.

    It was great putting faces to forum names too. Everyone was really nice. Finally met Luke after all these years as well. It was nice to see where my money goes!

    Oh never mind, looks like the areas in the red circles here are lower. Wonder what kind of gains you could expect from something like this, custom radiators arent that expensive...

    The sound coming from that thing was insane, that video really tells a tale. They said the car was 40% restricted!! Andy was so nice, answered all questions, posed for photos, signed autograpghs (people's cars) and the same with the crew. c4ss's dad got one of the sickest rides.... He took him for a non-stop 2 lapper. They said he would be hitting around 160 at the end of the straight. It really didn't even sound like a car until it was on the other side of the track and you could hear it through the woods. The car had it's own jacks too! They plugged in a hose, and it rose or lowered.

    Even their race cars have A/C
    it didn't actually, and it was so loud Andy stopped to take a break and put in two levels of ear plugs. He's doing the same thing for a Corvette club at VIR today.

    He won't stop talking about it either! He basically video taped me on the course all day, and I know he was itching to get on the course. I was going to let him drive after lunch, but after he went out with Andy, he said that was PLENTY for him to get his fix I thought he went fast when we were in it, but I can't imagine him coming all the way off of turn 10 with it pinned on the 2nd lap! Crazy
