    I guess my resolution would be to step up my game and put my best foot forward at NASA western nationals at Sonoma.

    A supplement resolution would be to slap a data logger in the car to tell me where and how much I suck.

    ^^ I am just now getting into the software of my AiM Solo. It's a really decent logger for the money, around $399 if I recall. Put it in a faster car for a few laps then overlay your data with the faster car.

    Mine is very simple:
    -Get a cage
    -Don't blow up anymore
    -Don't crash

    That's it.

    I don't blame you. You're a real trend setter with a purple miata and a dirt car.

    I just went to our end of season banquet for soccer/volleyball at the middle school as it was my last year coaching the soccer team (my youngest son is in 8th grade). People brought food and treats to share and I just walked around studying what people were eating. I was shocked at the portion sizes most of these people/kids were consuming and especially at the amount of sugar. Full plates of sweets, not just 1 treat, washed down with pepsi. All I can think about when I see this is diabetes and obesity. I just recently read somewhere that the average American consumes over 3800 calories per day! Portion sizes are out of control, probably 2-3 times larger per serving than 30 years ago. I don't blame the businesses because they just supply what people want. It has to come down educating people and starting early.
    Shut up hippie!

    I'm not so much worried about people blindly following me, I'm more worried about people agreeing with the idea.
