I had a good experience with it all. Classroom and driving as a student and instructor.
It was a long day, sitting inches from the playground with people out there play while I was in class. rtfm.gif

Then why didn't you drive after ?????????? Or was the sun shining too brightly? Or was the track too clean after the rain? Or was it too cool to get tire temps? Or did your mom call you and tell you it was time to come home? I will agree with you on the rain, I don't like it either.

The class was GREAT, Scott is a great instructor, even my son Patrick got a lot out of the class. I bet it was an eye opener for those that have not been to a big driving school like Andretti, Bondurant, Spring Mtn or the like. My first school was Derek Daly, which is now Andretti and it was quite an experience, well worth the time and money. The Z3 roadsters they use are fun cars. Maybe they could even get Spidey to drive faster than 55. Okay, and no comments about how it didn't help me a bit. I highly recommend either Andretti or Spring Mtn. Vegas in and of itself is a driver's mecca with two great tracks and untold number of race shops, especially at the speedway complex.

My track time was with good feedback on full tire wear -2.0 degrees LH & -2.5 degrees RH , even scuff to 1/32". / 0
The engine now pulls with the secondary.
Thank you Rene and all of the DE-TT crew

I didn't drive 'cause I was tired, and the weekend was almost over and so I went home to clean my car, rest, eat, mess with my dogs,
and process the info from the class. Too bad they didn't pair us up you could have driven my car.

I also had a blast this weekend. Damn, Sunday was as near to a perfect day as it gets!
Great weather, good friends, and some very good instruction followed by driving.
Only downside was I'd loved to be able to drive a bit more, or even do timing at the end
of the day.
Thanks to all involved, it was indeed a great day!

Spin out was with rear street tires, no problem after all four Falkins.
As to the class, I was not invited. The web post only stated a date & time, not a registration
Must go to the meetings
