CCR Racing - anyone headed to Watkins or NOLA?

I have signed up for CCR - time to choose a team.

The closer the better - CCR events are only going to represent a portion of my overall track time.

The continuation of CCR threads isn't going to stop - understanding the other place is a sponsor - shouldn't matter any more than I just bought Bridgestones for my 16M or own a Mclaren etc.

There's also a Porsche event pre-CCR if you're looking to get in another track day Thursday.

That's great - just need to get my car gathered in Ohio on time to make it.

Alex are you supporting drivers / taking a trailer?

I remember our college selection road trip heading west then south; 8 schools in 7 days covering 1400 miles. Enjoy the time, very memorable.

Depending on how far North and East you get, BU is in our back yard and Baltimore is playing the Sox @ Fenway this week.

Those days are almost behind me - my daughter graduated and my son this summer.

Ed - it's far important to grow the business especially when they graduate and ask you for a J O B!

Agree - I would have liked to run into you - experienced issue after issue.

Will post pictures tomorrow - btw I was the guy holding everyone up placed last place on the grid and went off after the first lap.

360 went into limp mode for 6 of my 12 laps over the three days but when it ran it was spectacular - my team mechanics cured the issue for a two laps at best ... missed an entire weekend of racing

Regardless it was a ton of fun - were you at the CCR parties?

The guy with his car on fire spun off the track and had grass in the engine bay.

He was on our team and tried repeatedly to set his extinguisher but it failed ... luckily the team mechanics were close he pulled over right in front of all of us which may have saved his car.

CCR is a blast and planning on making as many events as possible - great people especially the organizers John and Yulia!

I saw when you pulled of the track at the start of the race. Sorry that your car did not run well that weekend. I hope you get everything straighten out with your issues on your car. Your car is really nice and clean. If you need any help, please let me know.
Thanks

Thanks

If you have any suggestions on what would cause it to go in and out of limp mode?

It will rev in neutral to the limiter - under power it won't. Pretty sure something is wrong in the harness.

Great photos.

Doug, are you getting any messages like SLOW DOWN or readings from an SD2 to narrow down the root cause?
