Did you discover the goodness of Peanut Butter M & M's, Dennys Peanut Butter pie or Monster Coffee drinks?

Thanks for the drive day explanation. Imagine what another 200HP, with 40 other cars packed around you all going as hard as they can, for 200 laps might be like!

Is the car still trying to pull left on the straight when you have decent speed up?

Haha John , I've had peanut butter M&M's here before , in Las Vegas we found a building with 4 stories of M&M's and merchandise , it seems there is nothing you can not buy with M&M's on it ! We did buy a 1kg bag of M&M's from Walgreens and early in the trip in Chicago bought some Reeses peanut butter cups which was peanut butter flavoured chocolate I think I still have a block of Hershey's chocolate in the fridge that made it home .
In San Francisco we went to the Jelly Belly jelly bean factory for a tour and came home with around 10kg of jelly beans , in San Fran I also discovoured clam chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl , it was that good I had it for the next 4 nights as we drove down highway 1 towards LA .

Daryll the car did straighten up as we went faster and one thing that did affect my lap times earlier on was that I was weaving a little up the straights as I was fighting to keep the car up to the right , so this did affect my speed . With another 200 horses you would really know you were alive around that track , at the end of my last session the front of the car was starting to push coming off the turns and Harry did say to my on the slowdown lap that with extra power the car would switch to power oversteer and that burning up the rear tyres would become a problem . With another 40 cars you would become a little busy , I guess a little like a HQ race around Surfers Paradise .I'll have to show you the incar footage from the last session , the footage is agreat help as you can see things that you don't realise that you are doing at the time . The Las Vegas track is a reasonably small oval so I guess it would be a massive eye opener to have a go at a superspeedway like Daytona , then you would really know you were alive!

Had a great time Doug now I have to get my freight organised and go back on a buying trip .

Ron.
