View Full Version : ASS2 Drivers?
03-11-2002, 08:46 PM
Just wondering who I will be running with this year in ASS2. I don't think you'll have anything to worry about from Mr Rookie here, but speak up. :)

I'll definitely be ASS2 as there is no way anyone would want to run ASS1 without a C5 vette. For a while is seemed that my car (97 Camaro LT1) might be demoted to A3 base class which would give me more points to play with but the rules this year seem to be the same . I actually wasn't going to do anything to the car ( are you reading this Taylor ? ) other than change the plugs . At 80,000 Km they deserve it . Now if only my OE exhaust would blow I could convince my wife I needed a new stainless steel high flow one . I'm tired of sounding like a Caprice .

Should be a familiar sight for the two cars on the track I guess. You and Kirk battled quite a bit last season I take it?

Kirk certainly had more success than the car's previous owner. That's why I wondered if he had done anything to the engine as the previous owner ( old what's his name ) never got that close . ( You KNOW he's got to be reading this ) Can't believe he sold your car to buy a 3 rd gen Camaro . BTW I had an 89 LX hatch that I ran for years and loved it .

The only thing pumping away under the hood is a stock 302 long block with underdrives pulleys. :) I have absolutely no plans to change anything this year in that department. I would like to get to know the car (and my own skills) over the course of this season.
Sourcing an S-Trim Vortec for 2003 is in the works though. :) But that's next season, which is a long way off. I have to survive this one first. lol

Wasn't there talk of some changes in A to allow something other than a Z06 to stand a chance above ASS2? Judging by last years lap times, even the veteran ASP drivers couldn't stay clear of the Z06 menace.

Dave: yeah I'm reading this. :)
Yeah I'll be in ASS2 as well. At least as soon as I get in the garage and get down to business.

The Z06 is an interesting beast. It doesn't trap as high as my car, for instance, but on street tires (even R compound) the available traction makes the Z06 almost an identical match in forward thrust except in the last 1/8th of the back stretch. The suspension and active handling make it a match for most racing suspensions, and it weighs less than a GT style car.
Very formidable car, and I knew it before I actually saw them out on the track, too. It came as no surprise to me that they do so well.

I will be back as well in ASS2 but only 4 or 5 events plus lapping days.
Working weekends and nights suck.
At least this year I will have r compound rubber.
Dave B and Shaman ,offer is still open, hope you have time on lapping days to give me some help and let you drive my car.
Car is getting some new bushings, rotors, possible roll bar
and caster,camber plates . 2.5 maybe 3 degrees camber
Camber and R tires should help alot.:)

Greg , I would love to . I have very fond memories of my 89 . Most of my friends couldn't believe that I actually sold it ( needed the space in the driveway ) . I actually got down to 75.21 on Fabi with that car ( totally stock engine ) but I have no idea how I did it . Must have been a cool day with a great tail wind.
