A week later I was at Buttonwillow again



It was very hot this time around.



Even the nearby gas station was feeling the heat.



Found out that one of my valve stems broke as I finished the first day on a flat tire. Good thing I had an extra set of wheels.



Super long day, super hot, a car caught fire, had to do an emergency wheel change. I just wanted to relax. Stanley Cup final was on. Even that was a nope...

Day two started with fixing the valve stem.



I hate changing wheels.



Ran the first session the back up wheels. They suck for track use. Got the good stuff back on and all was well. The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. Wasn't as hot as the day before.

There are hella pictures. They are uploading, I'll have an Imgur link in a bit.

Pictures are up, they are here: http://imgur.com/a/w5VuR

Discovered that my tire rack is too small...



Nah, just working on the brakes and changing wheels on my buddy's '02 WRX wagon.

Then went out for some AutoX.

No shots of me driving my car. But there are some shots of me riding in my buddy's aforementioned bugeye.



And my neighbor's CLK AMG Black Series



Holy **** was that CLK awesome.

Ok... I need to do some updates. I'm sure no one has noticed that my profile information has changed...

Let's see... Where were we here? The last 2 months have been a blur of me and this thread is like 5 months behind...

I'm still working on the videos from 6/4 and 6/5 at buttonwillow.

There were AutoX events on 6/25, 7/24, and 8/7. I have videos for June and August. July has paintball videos. Did I really choose paintball over AutoX?

By the way, don't get into paintball. It's ****ing expensive.

I was at the track again on July 9th and 10th.

And then Disaster struck.

Here we go...

Back at the track!

Thunderhill! (again) This time we were a trio!



The Subaru RPF1 Njenius Grafix Racing Team!



I got to the end of another set of tires. For this weekend, I did 2 laps on the old tires.

During their last moments, they didn't have a lot of grip.


When they came off they looked like this:



This set achieved the following:

15 AutoX events, 68 runs
8 track days, 39 sessions
69 laps Thill 3 mile
50 laps Thill 2 mile
39 laps Thill 5 mile
109 laps Bw 13cw
~13666 total miles

It's ok, I came prepared for this.



Otherwise, the rest of the weekend went pretty good.

A BMW did some BMW things...



Oh, and I chewed threw my brakes.



These were the Carbotech XP8. They lasted basically 5 track days.

Here are the times from Saturday

First session, the one where I spun on the old tires.



Third session. I missed the second session changing tires.



Fourth Session.



Fifth Session.



Overall, not bad, getting a hang for the new tires. The ZIISS is a bit different than the ZII.

Sunday's times were a little more consistent.

First session.



Second session.



Third session.



Fourth session.



Fifth session I had to skip because the brakes were gone.
