They usually put the fastest cars in the back. Do one warmup lap, then it's balls to the wall from there. See you there.

Congrats on 1st place!

Our other sponsored team PTUNING took FWD Mod championship! These guys had no real budget, and got alot of financial backing from their Scion forums to help get them out here from the east coast. Incredible dedication. They blew the head in the first half, but had a 12 point lead over the nearest competitor. So they clinched it!
Here is driver Ross, and me on the left.

Hey Thanks Mike, and Edgar!

Mike, sorry I didn't get to come by and say hi while you were helping out the DD crew but Mike from DD has been keeping me in the loop on the progress pic's you were sending before he got the finished product. Looked great!

We could really, use one on our car! Espically at this last event.

My first time running the roval and it was SCARY espically w/ no aero, but we pulled through, I took 1st and Rich landed 3rd.

In the pic's you can see desperate attempts to settle the car, we threw on a make shift wicker to help out a bit.

Proper Aero is next on the list!

Thanks again!

-Paul

Mike had a hard time before i showed up with the wing. He had no spoiler because i destroyed it trying to remove the damn thing last month. The uprights came out great, but the new wing was producing alot more downforce than we expected. And the wing cracked. Unbelievable. So at least we found the weak points on the Z wing setup. Learned alot with that.

Yeah Mike the wing looked great and felt solid, Can't believe it created as much down force as it did.

Aero is definently next on the list so we have 5 months to figure something out. Also heard their changing up the rules a bit so will be interesting to see the outcome of that for each class.

I'd love to run your products so I'll shoot you a call in the near future and we can chat some more!

Thanks again for all the great comments guys!

Cool Paul,
Just hit me up anytime. I am driving the Silvia next season at eight of the events. The 370Z wing i spec'd specifically for the street class rules. I mean, we literally pushed the rules to the maximum. The scrutineers were like WTF? This wing is too big lol. Then they measured it, and bowed down. :naughtyd:
Since that test misshap, i increased carbon content by 30%. And made some other internal support changes to the design. Mike will be testing V2 wing at the customer appreciation track day next month.

That is amazing lol... :duh: I can't wait to get mine :) Take your time, like I said I'm patient :) I love to see the effort and quality you put into your work. Two thumbs up man. Since mine will be slightly wider, it makes me ponder LOL. Exactly what I wanted, MONSTER downforce :D

V2 you can stand on. I stand on them, and i am 228lb's. Were talking both feet together, and standing in the center of the wing. 7lb's. So testing is a good thing. :bow:
