Air, I would like the final standings to have an asterisk as Anth and I have yet to have our duel. They will probably stand as they are now, but it's something I'm very much looking forward to. NEMESIS!

AIR is the Sauce vs Anth race battle OK for the 13th? Or are we waiting for the 16th?

Sauce?

In reply to Advan046: I'm good either way. Do we have any idea what or where we'll be driving?

In reply to e30Matt:

I have not seen a definitive decision from Air.

I will ask our forum mates to propose a car and track for the event and Air can make the call if we know it now or if it is revealed online just before the race.

So guys throw out some ideas for Air to use.

The info is in the other thread. At this point we are doing Suzuki Cappuccino's ( 95 EA21R ) full stock for a small car test at Grand Valley East. We will also do another test with (at this point) SRT Viper GTS 13' with NOS added. Time permitting we can test CSC.

OK Air I won't be able to make it tomorrow for the test and practice races. Which was why I proposed the Sunday or next Wednesday (16th) tie breaker.

What were your thoughts?

Oh, OK, you are talking about "the mano on mano macho big time who's the man showdown"

Well, thinking aloud here, that was the SSS class so the car should be a full stock car. I am thinking Nurmburg GP or Grand Valley would be good for passing opportunity. Something with a good amount of power, but not too wicked (don't want it to be about who can learn the car faster). Maybe something like an M3, Corvette (C6 or C7) or Shelby GT500? We could just run a 5 min qualifying and say 2 or 3 lap race?

Does that sound OK? It should be good for both of you. Probably best to slot that in before the races on Wed or Sun.

Thats something that could be done before the reset race.

That is what I was thinking.

I am also thinking (participants may not like it) to have Dean do a running NASCAR style commentary of the race:

...they approach T1, Advan goes for the inside, Matt says "get off my porch bitch" and shuts the door!...

Who is going to be my Co Host coming up with all kinds of weird statistics about the drivers and what not?

I think Argo or Spool would be good for that. Much more entertaining if they just make up the statistics by the way. You will need on air names of course. I think your side kick should be "Bob" so your standard line can be "Oh really Bob".

"The Corvette was designed to get Harley Earl laid? Really Bob?"

I like where this is heading. I'm actually good with all of it (commentary included) but would vote to make sure that whatever car is chosen isn't one we've used before (i.e. M4).

PHotos as requested of SSS1 grand crash.

Anth makes a mistake in trying to carry too much speed out of T4 while inside of Mudd on the corner exit. I was banking on him carrying the car further to the left on track out of the corner. oh well my fault.  photo TokyoR246_zpsb31321a3.jpg

The resulting spin was massive as he went hard into the left wall and was apparently in full on reverse.  photo TokyoR246_1_zps6474de95.jpg

Same time opposite view, Dean enters the smoke while the others choose a path to take.  photo TokyoR246_2_zps7eaf7da3.jpg

Dean encounters Mudd with not time to react. This sends dean to slide along the left wall and Mudd gets more rotation.  photo TokyoR246_3_zps618d0de5.jpg

Plaid and Jax take evasive action to avoid Mudd while Dean is succumbing to the damage and wall grind into a hard stop.  photo TokyoR246_4_zps5957daf0.jpg

Jax and Plaid meet Dean when he is full stopped into the wall. Massive hit for all three.  photo TokyoR246_5_zpsff147934.jpg

In a fraction of a second Jax is tossed to the Right wall and Plaid is dead stopped while Argo creeps by with Mudd. I am slow on the outside waiting for Mudd to pass me.

 photo TokyoR246_6_zps0f4b9493.jpg

Jax Paid and Dean managed to have a menage a trois part Duex after Mudd and Argo pass.

After that we all get going again a bit worse for wear and Sauce is gone...

Thanks Anth, I didn't notice you had posted pics. Had you and Mudd maintained your speed you probably would have caught me on that straight or after T5. I ran a little wide on T4 and scraped the wall, killing a little speed. I checked my mirrors to see who was coming and how fast and just saw a cloud of smoke. I looked at the map and saw a mess of triangles pointing all kinds of directions, somewhat relieved that my mistake would go unpunished but also disappointed that it wasn't going to be a competitive race.

That crash sucked. My car was so damaged it took almost the rest of the lap before it fixed it self. Just a bad break. After i hit mudd i thaight i may get lucky and slide to the apex but the 2nd hit killed that plan.

You guys should stop hitting each other

See what happens when I don't show up.

I think that is one of the bigger CF's. Probably not as bad as the massive pile up in the switchbacks when we tried to run Matterhorn in the Rally cars though.

The Duel is complete..

Fun race Sauce. My family watched and cheered me on so I had a great time all around. I was most fascinated by how different our steering inputs were. Obviously it was a faster way to lap your way as I was 0.5 seconds off your qualifying pace. But the draft and racing just fell my way through luck. I think I may have been a little too rough going into the T1-2 complex side by side with you. I want to hear your view on it.

We can close this Season 2 now with final standings in SSS.

That was a great race Anth. There wasn't anything too rough in my opinion. You ran a little wide, but contact was minimal and didn't significantly impact anything going forward. I knew you were coming and would get by, I was just trying to stay close enough to challenge you through the last couple turns as that's where I was gaining the most time on you. I had it set up pretty much how I wanted, but turned in a little too early on the last turn and caught some curb that got me slightly loose. That was all that it took to kill my run.
