Don't make corporate look bad..


So they gave us three laps. I was third behind two corporate v cars that I was instructed to follow. Well first lap IMSA safety car took us on a slow lap increasing speeds as we went around the track.... second lap pace increased speeds in speeds through each turnout being very conservative on his lines. Kinda sucked as everything was dialed in on my car for today

I stuck on car two like a fucking magnet, I kept steam rolling him to the point he started moving over .. so I after the hard turn I out accelerated him on the straight. ... well the old v3 isn't supposed to out do the V5 ...I got a talking to on that one.

Apparently the pro Cadillac drivers have corporate passengers from marketing.. and they don't want their new line up being out gunned..


Ok ok I'm sorry I stepped on your shoe. :)


Just me making friends in the corporate world

In a big fuckin' valley in the woods.
I ran into that with Kawasaki back in the mid-'80's, we had a bunch of pretty good MX racers that raced out of the shop back then, I built some really good engines for them. A few of 80cc kids got the really good engines, all stock, but tuned well, or had the my best porting if they ran in the mod classes. There was a regional qualifier for the Loretta Lynn amateur race at a local track, the track (Casey,IL) had a long straight that really showed the horsepower. One or two of my guys were good enough to stay fairly close the the Kawasaki Team Green riders, and out ran them on the long straight. My guys were giddy as hell about that, Kawasaki not so much. The Team Green truck used to show up at the dealership every now and then, but I never saw them after that.

Got a driver meeting and great session

But best of all got a great one on one meeting with the head V Platform Engineer and Head of the chassie engineering team..

We went over in great detail about a few issues I'm having on top speed runs and look forward to getting a personal hand From Kevin who heads the Chassie design department .. he explained that a proper set up with the front and rear cradle alignment is critical to these cars. There is a special tool set up and procedure that he has written for proper set up that he will forward to me. That was true gold right there

is it an open track day? I'm confused on why they would limit you

Let me explain what I'm part of.

This is the 20th year of the V platform ..

It is a year long celebration with the GP car kicking it off..

They are highlighting the V cars at each event and basically let us do three to four laps showing the different V cars over the years in a Spirited lap.. at all the race events they are attending this year.

Which means a follow the leader set up with no passing .. Basically we brand embassadors.

In return I get a few perks at their races .. (track passes, team access, and hospitality services, corporate contacts, product access)

see above
Spoilers are inefficient for down force, sure they (might) make a little, but they're higher function is to break the airflow off the back of the car. Dan Gurney broke everyones brain when he put a 90Āŗ lip on the back of a car, what we call a Gurney flap now. Spoilers dirty and disrupt the low pressure area in back of a car which people call down force. True down force comes from a wing.

No wonder you were so frustrated. I saw the vids and they looked like they were doing max 35mph. It was fucking pathetic. You need to bitch slap those fucking pussies some more.

They'll probably sign you to their race team...

In fact just shoot them.

Yeah I am annoyed now (everyone should be allowed guns when they are annoyed). They're just fucking corp-pussies. You have a gun, right? Just shoot them in their fucking stupid fucking pathetic ghey slow ass faces and own that fukken track.

If you can't bring yourself to do that because apparently there is a law against that kind of thing in 'The Land Of The Free :roll:' then at least show the fucking gheymosexual bastards this thread and let them know that we think they are all fucking cunts and they should be fucking killed painfully.

And they're cunts.

And tell them all to fuck off. But say it like this.

"FUCK OFF!"

And then shit on a table.

Cunts... :fu:

I have been asked to join the school staff. I'm not a corporate or people person ... hard pass.



We are held back by the asshole safety car. He gives us the pace... Daytona was way faster... but i also wasnt up front and held back.. this time they they threw me right up front to stop that from happening again.. fastest I got at Sebring was 108 .. slowest was 45 in the two tight turns. Track is a fucking nightmare of bumbs.. race mode nope next time sport mode to soak the bumps better.. I look forward to Virgina and Georgia on the upcoming scheldual as we should be able to get some speed there.

Today's lesson.. Racaro seats are good for 300 or so miles... before shit hurts.


Stock seats are good for 800 miles. No issues.
