Default Edgewater!!!

Me, Brian (Gonneville), and Cody (fuelforthesoul1999) went to Edgewater in Cincinnati on Saturday. It was my first time ever going to a track, much less racing on one... so I naturally did some very embarassing, stupid things, especially with regards to that silly light thingy... but I eventually figured it out. And everyone was very nice to me about it.

So yeah my car'* pretty slow. I got between 15.934-16.177 (bleh). But it was still an AWESOME day. Cody was nice enough to sit out for a bit and video some runs of my car, and he got one of Brian'* beasty PAU too.

Okay.. this one ended up being 16. 1 something. I think I screwed up the launch. But at least I was faster than that Dodge monster :P

This one actually looks kinda cool, it was also my fastest run (15.934).

And here'* Brian, at some point Cody did some interpretive filming of the bleachers (what happened dude )

Very nice, and looks like fun.
What was that red car you raced? It looks to me like you blew it out of the water!

Believe me, 15.9 for a 3500lb 4 door sedan is not as slow as you think. Believe it or not, our cars were some of the quickest large class V6 sedans in the 90'*. For example a 90'* Lincoln Continental ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImageSCN0273.JPG ) with the 3.8 V6 took around 19 seconds to hit the quarter and weighed nearly the same. Also the Chrysler New Yorker/LHS even with the 214hp 3.5 took around 17 in the quarter.
