Goals:
My future goals are to continue to develop the car for the track incrementally and inexpensively while keeping the car streetable. It is about enjoyment on a budget. Tinkering, modifying, figuring, researching, and scheming are what keeps me interested. And the anticipation of the next track day makes me feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. And when it arrives, every track day is a thrill, every lap a reward, and every car passed is sweet vindication.

I had the Racing Beat sways on that RX7. The handling balance was so neutral in sweepers you could steer it with the throttle very precisely.

Thanks guys for all of the encouragement.

You need to stop spending so much time on your extracurricular activities and instead devote more time to your extracurricular activities.

In other news, I have signed up with NASA to run with them at Miami Homestead Motor Speedway on Saturday, May 19th. It was a snap decision made upon receiving notification that the infield course was closed on one end and everyone would be using the high banks of NASCAR's turn 3 and 4 along with their front and back straight!
See attached map.

Needed- large Wonder Bread decal for my hood.

I wonder if there is room to hit 150 out there... Note to self- rebalance tires before next weekend.
