Chris driving my car around Putnam Park to a 1:25.0 on his Direzza ZIIs.
Great weekend at the track last weekend with friends! Finally brought the car out of storage and threw on some new Carbotech XP10s (front) and XP8s (rear). Tires were shot, but it was still a fun trip.

Took a few new shots during a nice winter drive. All of the NASA stickers have been removed for now to start with a clean slate!
A great picture I found from the 2013 season, before all of the numbers and stickers!
My best lap of the weekend at CMP, running a 1:56.8. Not great for TTE, but the best I could manage given traffic and my own braking troubles. It’s still an extremely fun track!
A shot from the sandy beaches of the CMP paddock. The weekend went okay, but I found the limit of my brake pads and used up most of the good tread left on my NT01s. I did manage to put down one respectable lap. Video to come shortly.
Not a lot has changed on the car since summer, but I’ve officially switched to NASA’s TTE instead of running in F. Basically, this means I can do a lot more fun stuff.
For now, I’ll just be running about 150 lbs lighter than I have earlier this year. I also put on another Si-VTEC front lip since I broke my last one, but that’s just for looks :)
Updates to come after this weekend.
Packed up and ready to head to Carolina Motorsports Park today!
A great shot from the NASA Autobahn event in July. After a summer break, the Red RS will be back in action in November. Stay tuned!
Last weekend I traveled to Joliet, IL to run my second NASA TT weekend with Red RS on Autobahn South. Although I didn’t have any competition in my class (TTF), I feel like I learned the track decently well and did the car justice. My NT01s didn’t care for the track surface much, so I think Hoosiers would be in order for any future trips to Autobahn.
