TL:DR - I always wrote off those silly gas pedal extensions as tools for old guys who couldn't figure out how to heel/toe. That or they were for waxers who wanted to dress up their interior - right after they got done air brushing a mural on the underside of their hood.  Once I made one to accommodate my brother in my own car I realized there's an actual verifiable performance advantage on track.   Pedal Placement The Corvette engineers did many things right when they scrapped the C4 for the completely redesigned C5 in 1997.  One thing they could have considered...

Welcome to the first racing blog post of 2019!  On May 4th and 5th we found ourselves at NJMP Lightning with a whopping 10 cars signed up to race in ST2.  Season was sure to start off with a bang (a good one, hopefully) bringing lots of rookies and seasoned vets alike to the track.  I'll re-cap a couple small items since our last race at Watkins Glen before we get to the fresh stuff at NJMP. ...The Past 7 Months... After finishing second place in both races at WGI in September I got the car out two more times to...

TL:DR  After completing 0 laps at Limerock in July, the entire engine wiring harness was rebuilt to exorcise the electronic demons that had been plaguing the car.  Car was tested at Limerock the week before our race at Watkins Glen and everything worked fine.  Raced at Watkins Glen and managed 2nd place finishes in both Saturday and Sunday races and 2nd in TTU on Saturday.  Car ran great 2 days in a row for the first time in I don't know how long. If you'd like to WATCH the Vlog of this weekend rather than spending all your time reading...

TL:DR - Raced at NJMP June 9-10 but terrible weather and wonky electronics led to bizarre race scenarios in which I was racing for nothing (or not at all).

Still waiting for a trouble-free weekend

Round 4 of the NASA NE race series took us to Palmer, Massachusetts and The Thrill at Whiskey Hill on July 23-25.  The actual name of the track is Palmer Motorsports Park but it's built on the side of a mountain known as Whiskey Hill.  Palmer is a 2.3 mile roller coaster with 190 feet of elevation change.  It is a winding, technical track where the main straight isn't really straight at all, and there is very little run off and room for error.  The track is brand new and only opened in the beginning of last year. However, no one...
