    get some of this bishes <pics inside> not modem friendly

    We finished 2nd in our class, and 18th overall out of 41 cars.

    At hour 22 and 10 minutes we were in 1st place battling on the same lap as the 2nd place car. When we pitted they were in 1st, when they pitted we were in first. Went like this from hour #6 to hour #22:10 when we blew out a front right brake caliper (completely fried it to the rotor, had to get an air hammer to get it off the car). This caused us to obviously make an unscheduled stop to do rotors/pads/right front caliper/bleed the brakes/4 tires/fuel and driver change in 16:04.

    When we left the pits after that stop we were 11 laps down. So it was close, but we took 2nd instead. However 18th overall was quite an accomplishment. We completed all 24 hours (accomplishment in itself) and 692 completed laps.

    Our crew kicked ass!
    Before more noobs chime in that don't know shit about me with all the stickers=rice crap, I am a paid driver, and to compete in this race was in the neighborhood of $15,000. Sponsors helped off set the cost obviously.

    nice huh?

    '

    Yeah, hahahahahah they gave me $9600 worth of tires (65 of them) for the race, and prize money bitch. Be a smart ass on that. They are also going to use the car in advertisements.

    Doesn't your tire sponsor make you put their decals on your race car?

    Sorry for not explaining better before the whino's chimed in.

    The pictures are from the 24 hours at Moroso (the longest night) race that we did over the weekend. The race began at 1pm on Saturday and ended at 1pm on Sunday (hence the lights since the track had no lights) 5 drivers, 13 crew and he who finishes the most laps wins.

    It ain't rice (not accusing of not knowing) if the car has legitimate parts of the said stickers advertising them.

    Yeah Chill is a complete asshole.

    Yes I know those are sponsers. But there are alot of idiots on this board that automatically assume that stickers = rice.

    uhh yeah. Guess all the guys posting in here don't know me, or they are all newbies. I posted before the weekend that I was heading to the race, so now that I am back I posted a couple of pics.

    We finished 2nd in our class, and 18th overall out of 41 cars.

    At hour 22 and 10 minutes we were in 1st place battling on the same lap as the 2nd place car. When we pitted they were in 1st, when they pitted we were in first. Went like this from hour #6 to hour #22:10 when we blew out a front right brake caliper (completely fried it to the rotor, had to get an air hammer to get it off the car). This caused us to obviously make an unscheduled stop to do rotors/pads/right front caliper/bleed the brakes/4 tires/fuel and driver change in 16:04.

    When we left the pits after that stop we were 11 laps down. So it was close, but we took 2nd instead. However 18th overall was quite an accomplishment. We completed all 24 hours (accomplishment in itself) and 692 completed laps.

    Our crew kicked ass!

    But don't those light obstruct driver's vision the way they are positioned?

    No. They were off center just a tad (1.5 inches) and they were not in your line of sight.
