I'm not sure "lucky" is the word that comes to mind when Pro class comes through and knocks down half the course!
BTW, nice driving Nick! Straight timing Grant is no easy feat even with 400hp on tap, getting it done with 240hp and 1.3 torque just makes it all the more impressive. Now knock it off!
Haha! Hey now, I'll gladly shag cones if it means getting to watch the great Nate Whipple rip is his ITR on to the taxi way!
Thanks for the compliment homie. This is the 2nd Time I have raw timed super stock (Did it in Delaware last year, remember when you were screaming at me? hahaha
I knew it would be possible with a Devens course; even the course we ran which did have a couple of big acceleration zones. The CR is a monster! I knew the low 54 was possible after the 54.8 came in the morning. After 6 runs of heat, and fixing a mistake I did on the 54.5+3, I knew the time was there! I nailed the final chicago box, and actually shifted to 3rd BEFORE the final left right transition (And I was just about to go off the limiter in 2nd). I hadn't done that on any other run. Last left- right complex flat-out in 3rd through the finish. I was pumped coming through the finish! 54.177 on the post-it note and that was good for a scream!
Props to Grant as well, driving his butt off on the new setup. That man is going to be scary once he gets it dialed in!
Btw, awesome course design Nate. I tend to love just about every course you make
The Panda boys are good too
