Way ahead of me. Got to replace all the wheel studs tonight as they've suddenly started snapping on me. Picking the trailer up Thurs. and then heading out Fri.. Hopefully everything goes to plan.

I leave this weekend. Packing the car should be an adventure. (driving up with all 4 wheels/tires inside the Z)

What do you guys think?
In tight courses, S2000 will go ahead of the Z. In wider/open courses, vette will finish ahead where they can go much higher (Mph) in 2nd gear. Also, lets not forget vette comes with nice mechanical diff and Z only comes with viscous which becomes an open diff after few back to back runs (or after few hundred autox runs). Sorry it sucks to say it like this, but the day SCCA bumped Z to Bstreet, Z dominating days are over. I do ok with my Z around here regionally but nationally, I doubt Z will be competitive in Bstreet. But word on the street is that c5 vette will be bumped to Astreet after national . I'm also hearing TRD (shock/springs/sways) frs might be bumped to Bstreet bc of brz owners complaining in CS.. should be interesting

However, I want to wish all Z drivers good luck at the nationals. I couldn't make it this year(suppose to do drive in SSR) but I'm most certainly planning to next year. Guys, go out there, drive your best and make us proud.

I think Jeff came 3rd in STU behind N. barbato in pro solo final. Go get it Jeff at the final! I think you have what it takes to be champion. Jason R. has to fight a tough battle in STR with those S2k CRs but good luck to you as well.

Drove like sh!t both days. Slow on day one and coned every run on day two. As a result I was second to last in my class (ASP). Confident that if I had removed my head from my a$$ I could have come close to the final trophy position.

The ASP Evo's are in a league of their own (at least when they are running). In all reality with the times they are running compared to the rest of us, they should be bumped up to SSP. Looking at the times of the Evo's vs. the SSP cars, the Evo's would have been right at the top of SSP (this has been the case for the last few years).

Didn't go so well for me, but the 350z crew - particularly Jeff Stuart - did outstanding!

Everybody has days like that. Can't drive for nothing. Never know until you get behind wheel. Those days you wish you would have just stayed on the porch. Well, except for the top tier. It's just another day at the track for them.

I overestimated my ability to learn a new tire AT nationals. I just couldn't keep the RE71's on the edge consistently.

Ended up 12 of 36. 0.16 seconds out of the trophies.

I hope to have the tires figured out by state.
