Still trying to figure out the video software, I must have some setting off as it comes out pixelated.

Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

Thanks to everyone involved with making the hill happen. I very much appreciated being behind the wheel again after not racing for most of the year.

Got a bit squirrely coming through finish...combo of hitting the big bump wrong, lifting, overcorrecting to avoid heading toward finish, and spun it sideways. Could have been a lot worst... thankfully the tree landed right in the wheel, so the rear beam took most of the hit. some sheet metal work and a rear beam and I'll be good to go

Thanks to everyone who helped me try to get the soot shooter back into shape so I could limp it home. The unexpected lane changer made the trip home!

and a pic I got of Steve's car during a run...I was trying to get a shot from above while, for a different perspective. Crap pic, but kind of cool

That was cool. So the turbo is worth a checkpoint. Going by finish instead of check 6 in the same time. So if you install twin turbos do you get two checkpoints?

In a nutshell... I should have rotated my tires as the rears were in very good shape and would have offered a lot more traction plus I had more power than what was needed for the short sections that make up Philo. Long sections like Okemo and Ascutney the current setup works (yet, less power would still be better). 300wHP next year.
