What an awesome day!!!! Thanks Jack! I always get the most out of these days...
Peter sorry about your fuel starve :(
Riding with Brent helped a ton! I learned a lot more of what I need to work on (car control, lol)...was running 2:05's, but I know there's much more to improve...compared to Brents 1:58's.
Here's a tribute to my crazy fun:

Eddie,
How's the new toy compared to the Elise?
Pretty drastic difference....the forces inside the SRF are much more stronger (like a gokart), and the inputs are much more sensitive - so much less margin for error.

I think it's more of just getting used to a car in general in finding its limits...both are a blast to drive, but for now I'm more comfortable in the Lotus.

btw, Peter, that pic. of your car is friggin hawtness.

VERY FUN day.:clap::clap: THANKS a ton Jack.:bow::bow: Aero is good.:D

Had a good time with my car and friends, lots of driving, very little wrenching.:clap: I can't wait to go back in a month w/ the big wing and splitter, Riverside flat out or bust.:D Morning was cool and cars were making tons of power, Peter's is mindblowing. No fuel starve, except of course when I ran my can out of gas.:eek: All of the Jackpack is getting faster, it's fun to see the progression in everyone's driving skills. It's as simple as a day or two with Craig, his skills are godlike.:bow: I need to save up and hire him for a day.

Time to go put the big wing on and mybe some new tires.:eek::shift:
