Likewise regarding pictures of the TT!

That was a fun event. Thanks to Chris for showing me the ropes for timing and David for the tips on driving technique. Thanks to all the volunteers and organizers for their efforts.

In the morning I thought I might have been able to close the gap from the 133 to his 126....but not to be.  In the afternoon I was miles behind.

Thank you, gentlemen.  I was trying to minimize wheelspin.  That seemed to help.

I'll say.

So how come my afternoon times were better than my morning times, even though it felt like I was going way faster in the morning and only tip-toeing my way around in the afternoon?  I definitely had more fun in the morning runs clearing the track for the AWD guys, although I did get pretty much completely sideways coming into the straight section with the 8 cones lined up on the berm on my last morning run.

Slow and clean is fast. which explains none of my own afternoon runs.

Driving in knee deep snow is challenging but not fast at all. It probably seemed like you were because of all the work you had to do just to stay on the course. Everyone improved a lot by the 5th run but the track still wasn't clean so after 4wd's did their part the course was even faster and easier to drive.

You didn't pay attention to your times on the score board placed after finish?

Fair enough, but I'm a rookie with FWD and no studs, so I thought for sure the icier runs would be slower (and they felt slower, but showed faster on the clock).  It seems that before lunch I was at least getting times that were close to the FWD guys with studs (and was almost as fast as Darcy in the corolla), after lunch I was nowhere near their times, just like last week.  For me, the after lunch runs were more work to keep it on the track - tiptoeing means I tried not to understeer like crazy into the berms but actually was able to get the car to rotate to an inside exit on the cones where I could find traction.

Yeah, but it didn't all really add up until I was looking at the times from the other cars after lunch.
