    Just watched the full race. WOW that Yellow mustang almost took out Crusher and Emilio. Did the yellow mustang get busted at the start (jumping/passing cars off track/or something) or somewhere in the race?

    Congrats again Emilio you definitely ran a clinic and dominated your class and the class above you. Thanks for the shout out for the crew. Awesome!!! Good job Tom Probert for spotting for Emilio. Must have been nerve wrecking at the start. lol!!

    Emilio, what was your take on the start? What happened?

    Thanks. I'll get a video stitched together and posted later. I knew the Mustang would try the same thing he got away with Thursday so I was focused on it. I waited for the move and when it came I scooted over and put to in the grass myself before he could get alongside. I expected him not to lift but keep the power on and try to complete the pass.. at 100mph, in the grass. Got to say, I don't think that was smart driving on his part.

    After the race I filed a body contact report and so did he. The race director and the owner of NASA both had to try to explain to him why passing someone in the grass, after you have already hit them once, probably isn't a great idea. They also DQ's him for an illegal flywheel that their head mechanic insisted was "OK because it didn't make more power on a dyno"

    During the race he got a rolled up black flag warning for going four off.. way off, numerous times.

    I asked Tom to let me know when I had enough of a gap to start pedaling it. He did just that. I blew off that final update from my spotter and drove flat out.

    You're asking the wromg guy and not to make too fine a point of it but, I don't really care. I just heard them appealing (arguing) to NASA officials about how there aftermarket lightweight flywheel
    was legal, NASA telling them it wasn't. Sorry, no more details on it.

I think you took the first turn ALOT faster than the previous qualification lap on Thursday and was able to control and lessen some of the oversteer in the tighter bits compared to the previous quali lap. Also noticed that on the beginning of the flying hot lap, you were able to shift about 100-150ft sooner at the beginning of the front straight. Probably got you 3-4mph more. You even upshifted to 5th prior to turn in for T1 and didn't have to crazy correct for oversteer. Before you were bouncing on the rev limiter for quite a while and had a oversteer moment mid corner of T1 and cost you some speed there. Yeah, definitely the front straight and T1 is where you shaved most of the time. Great job!!

    Slap on another set of brand new sticker tires. Maybe can go another few tenths faster...hehehe.

    Good luck on the race!!
    I did the winning/record 1:36.684 TT lap in the 8:30 am session while it was still cold and overcast. Tires did not come up to temp. The plan was to do just enough laps on the set of sticker A6's we set aside for the PTC race. I thought there might be a chance that the track would fast enough to improve my Friday 1:37.006. On track as the tires came up the car just kept getting faster each lap. When I did the 1:36.684 I immediately shut it down, cooled them off and brought it in. It was still getting faster though and I'm sure a 1:36.4 or so would be possible. I thought that time would be enough for the TT win and still put a good heat cycle on the stickers.

    The sun came out for last TT session at 10:20 and virtually everybody in TT went about .7s faster. I'm pretty confident Crusher had a high 1:35 in it had I opted to run that last TT session.Kind regretting I didn't as a 1:35 would have been nice.

    On the penultimate lap of the PTC race later in the day with fairly overheated tires and toe knocked out from the contact with the Mustang (understeer), I did a 1:36.432

    So to answer your question on theoretical best, I'd say a 1:35.8 on a solid lap in that 10:30 session was doable.

    Still sounds kinda weird, my understanding is that cars can be raced in multiple classes as long as they comply with the regulations for whichever class they race in, in the same way that you ran Enzo in both SuperMod and Mod with changes made to the spec.
    I don't think that there is a direct crossover formula from CMC to PTC... maybe the Flywheel he got caught with was illegal for CMC?

    Not that it matters much, the guy was driving like a dick anyway...

    Just watched the race> Nice Driving Emillio!!! I'm not even going to say anything about the Mustang. I'm glad you held you ground. Thanks for coming over and giving me a few pointers. Wish I could have used them more.
    But after smacking the curbing that sent me into the gravel on the front stright. I started loseing air in the L/rear. So all the right hand turns were a hand full. It was flat when I got back to the trailer.
    No matter, I still had a blast!

    Again Congats!!!!
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    A Miata didn't win or take second in PTE so maybe there's hope for no NASA backlash. It looks like a Civic won and Mike Rose got second in his RX-7.

    Emilio, did NASA put a Trackmate or something in your car at all over the weekend?

    Greg must have had a very proud moment. Most all of the PTE class was turning 1.42 to 1.43s. The CRX and Rose diped into the 1.41s. Both have a lot of time on Mid-Ohio. Rose grew up there and Waddell lives there.
    I think if Mike had a better start. He very well could have won.
    The 99 Miata of Webb that was leading. Was lossing power at the end and retired.

    I'm guessing, but it's probably like racing a thunder roadster in PT. Its a "PT whatever" car, but you're not allowed to modify it from TR spec, nor add a larger fuel cell from TR spec if you're in an enduro.
