And they are looking good. You will be breaking into,the 25s soon.

And maybe we can put a mic on you, and interview you during your warm up laps and as you approach the starters flag.

Yeah, we are getting there. The past two weekends we have made a bad adjustment in the third practice, where the track goes one way and we go the other, and then we fight to get back to the 26.0s. We hit a 25.9 last season, but that was with freshies.

Got Stevie looking at the engine as there are a couple parts needed fixing, and some other different tricks we are going to try at the May Race.

As for the interview during the race, well, I wouldn't mind all too much!

One of the most important things to remember is change one thing at a time, then document the results. A simple,written log is all,that is needed. Record tire pressures, gearing, engine temp, even air temp,and cloudy vs sunny.

Start with a basic set up by Stevie. Then Make one adjustment and take some laps. Best done on a practice day. Would be glad to help anytime

That is how the pros, and most all racers, do it. Takes time, but tenths of a second count. Part of the race prep..c

Yeah, a few months before I got into indoor karting in 2010, I started racing online. For setting up the cars, the process is the same! Definitely becomes more clockwork than fun in comparison to karting as you don't get the fun of actually driving on a track when you practice, but still just as exciting from a driver and fan's perspective!
