Great drive Matt.
Did you find out what happened to your gears? Was it the box, pneumatics, or blipper?

The electrical connector into the valve block came undone. Simple fix, all was well on Sunday until the fuel pump decided to give up the ghost.

Re: Round 1 Radical Canada Cup - Watkins Glen - May 12-14

Watkins Glen is an awesome track, It reminds me of a cross between Tremblant and Mosport but with less run off! The Radical North America Master's series does an great job of putting on memorable events. The weather was mostly good with dry running in all sessions except for Qualifying and Race 3 which were mixed wet/dry. Dan qualified on the pole but Tyson took the win after a frantic race. Race 2 had a couple of incidents, the start was mess after the pole sitter failed to maintain pace car speed, then on the restart there was another incident that resulted in a few damaged cars. The video has been posted on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktInlfR5W28 . Tyson won again and finished an incredible 2nd overall. It started to rain on the pace lap of Race 3 and after a couple of laps behind the safety car the whole field came in and switched to rain tires. I got lucky and managed to win in the mixed conditions. This was an amazing start to the 2017 Radical Canada Cup, I can't wait for Calabogie!

Re: Round 1 Radical Canada Cup - Watkins Glen - May 12-14

The first start of Race 2 reminded me of another crash that happen when the pole sitter slowed before taking the green:

The cars on the front row have a responsible to lead the field to a safe start. Any gamesmanship can have a serious effect on cars starting deeper in the field. A 'slow' start is more competitive because everyone is closer together, a 'fast' strings the field out more but I think it's way safer and more in keeping with this level of racing.

WOW! That is an Epic lap! Congrats Tyson!!!

I was doing 1:47's in Project Cars -- zero fear of course in a video game. To be doing 1:51 in real life. Amazing!
