      I got an email that they are desperate for volunteers at HPR this weekend so I'm going to come and help out. I'll see you there.

      Cheryl, I totally understand your thinking...these ACR's (all colors) are darn nice cars and every nick and scar is hard to swallow. I got hit the first time out in the rear quarter, but it was just tire marks and wheel scrapes. These cars take a pretty good hit. MMP is 5 mph avg faster than Mid-Ohio, so it isn't like the fast speeds I imagined. There are 12-22 turns depending on the configuration. We ran the outer loop, the fastest, to get 89 mph avg. Those Boxters are fun cars, and a great track car, esp if fully prepped. I tracked a 911 for 13 years, its a great motor. I might be at Road Atlanta in Dec...another fast track. Have fun and be safe.

      Hey Jim, I appreciate the info on MMP and your ACR settings. I have decided to exclusively race my Spec Boxter for a couple of years then go back to racing the '09 ACR after he gets a little age to him. The ACR is my baby and it hurts me to see all the whings and dings from the track on him. He's white and shows everything! Once I drove a full race car (Boxter), it's been hard to go back to a car without a full cage too. Even though the Box isn't quite as fast as the ACR, it's surprising how close my times are. Weight and stiffness from the cage make a lot more difference than I would have ever imagined. MMP is a fast track with few tight turns though and most of the tracks in Texas have lots of tight turns which favor the Box over the ACR. Those NASA boys play pretty rough too. Be careful, that graphite ACR is way to pretty to let them bump and push you. I love that color combo, I wish I was rich so I could have a white one and a graphite one both. I had a 911 whack me in the right rear trying to pass at my last race two weeks ago. It's amazing how the urge to win turns normally nice people into demolition derby mode on the race track. The PCA guys call it the "red mist". Good luck with your races and I hope to meet you in person sometime at an event, maybe next year. There aren't too many of us that really race so it's always nice to meet someone new, especially a Viper racer. Congratulations, that is really rare air for sure! Cheryl
