We were hoping to get our setup dialed in at Kennedale today, but things just didn’t go quite to plan.
The plan was to hotlap making A-B-A tests with timing, pills, shift times, and things of that nature, to get pretty much race-ready.
A 100-ft Density Altitude, combined with 2 inches of rain the night before, made for an unpleasant situation at the track. Ronnie Crow was the only car able to make a full pull, and out of our 4 passes, none of them got further than 30 feet under power. In the only video that was taken, we actually ‘went up in tire smoke’, followed by the right rear tire rebounding completely off the ground.
After adjusting the front shocks for weight transfer, the rear shocks for minimal hit (that’s a very relative term, judging by the video), and pulling 10 degrees of timing, since we could not connect after 4 passes, we packed up and went home.
We will try again next weekend. Kennedale is having it’s drivers meeting/test session next Saturday, and Texas Motorplex is having a closed bracket-only test on Sunday.
