Hey all ran with some really fast guys today. The busa was holding her own. The rear end raise if far more comfortable to me now but still need to get the suspension work done. Lots of high speed stuff and some tight stuff. Quicker turn in and quicker on the throttle are paying off huge. Here is a pic of one of the roads I ran today.

No Kent didn't make it too Vegas. Work is keeping me here. Two jobs is killing me. One more year and I will be retiring so things will get better I hope.

Yeah Howlin...Just rub it in...
Man, I miss being out west. There is not much that can compare to out here in Florida, probably East of the mississipi really. I mean if there are good roads they are crowded, and hell with the population out here even the bad roads are crowded. Besides, looky at that runoff...

Hey Howlin,
Quick question regarding suspension settings, If I remember right you are a pretty big guy, I am about 215 any recomendations for front rear settings? Preload, compression etc?
Any tips would be appreciated. Right now the front is a bit bouncy...

Revlis I know what you mean about the roads in Florida. I am from So Miami. I don't think I will be going back now that I love the twisties.

As far as suspension. The compression is maxed out. If you have the stock springs. I weigh about 10lbs less than you do. I had it set up by suspension specialitist at my last track day. I don't know all the numbers so you can do it yourself. That is as much as I can help. My suspension is stiff though.

No Sweat Howlin, Thanks for the look out.

Yeah, Florida roads are a bit...bland...to be nice, there are some decent ones I have heard, I just have to find them.  Of course these are all country farm roads and well, you know the rest...
