I pity the EP field at VIR.

The odds just got a slight revision

Wait, that EP field should include you too, right Steve? Riiiiiight....?

Nice. Always loved seeing and hearing this car even when Sam owned it. One of the sweeter sounds that we get to hear.

I came to the realization a rotary can no longer win EP. If the rest of the field is on their game we just can't match the torque deficit. Cars are already as light as you can make them and still barely a top 5. The only thing I could ask for to get us back in the hunt would be TWM/Borla TB on the current allowed intake. Without injection we can't match the power curve of the newer cars and stock intake breaks as soon as we port it big enough to flow. Not going to make it past Production Committee or CRB. All good, cars are old.

STL just makes more sense right now for me for VIR. I have one bad ride in the works. :D

Congrats on the sale Chris and congrats to Jesse on getting a really slick car.
I'll miss it in the Northeast.

Well damn...was hoping to see you in EP next year. But understand. Man it takes big $$$ to develop a fast Ep car and even after all the dollars, not sure if I can make the power I need. We'll see.

I've seen Sam's Z3 many times. Mr. Prather got a kick ass car.

Jeff:

Happy to see you running EP this year (I assume to make it to the Runoffs at VIR). I am getting close to having my FP MGB ready for the same reason.

See you at the track.

Rick
