    Rain race video at Laguna Seca...

    Yeah, a modern DSR or CSR car would run around car is pretty heavy (1250lbs) and low dowforce and I'm using a bone stock Hayabusa. A good time would have been in the 28s but I had setup problems all weekend including lack of rear downforce.

    Rain race video at Laguna Seca...

    I was actually taking it pretty "easy" in the lead but it looks like I simply gave it too much gas on turn exit at a particularly damp bit. That last "clear" lap was a 1:54 something so wasn't very fast...the aquaplaining on the straight was pretty "exciting" though not for all the right...

    Craig Davies electric water pump

    On a tangent, I did a bunch of research on electric water pumps for my Hayabusa powered Radical and given the racing demands of the pump, opted for a Mezier pump due to it's solid and robust design. I'd read some negative things about the DC pumps in high temperature and vibration applications...

    These come from a DVD called "In car 956" which is a nice video that is sold by Motorsports Collector and I think it's on Amazon as well.

    GT40s at HSR-West Phoenix historics race

    So I'm sitting in the garage waiting for my next session and a BEAUTIFUL GT40 in Gulf colors drives I gaze at it admiringly, it's right rear wheel falls off and it comes to a grinding halt. A bunch of people went to help and by the end of the day I saw it driving under it's own power...
