    Does anyone know who drove the 360 Challenge against the Vipers at Viper Days at Willow Springs? Whoever it was they were a pretty smooth driver, and passed a few of the timid Comp Coupe drivers.

    Just wondering.

    That was my car with the number 34; i've rent it to Jim Michaelian from Long Beach because he needed some tips before to go racing at the Daytona 24hrs with the 360 GT.

    If you were the driver, I have to compliment you on your technique and aggressiveness. You don't see many Ferrari drivers pushing their cars that hard. You actually surprised a bunch of those Comp Coupe drivers (who were driving some pretty soft lap times). To tell you truth, I wasn't very impressed by the Viper guys (outside of Messley and Archer). I noticed that you really took advantage of those guys between turns 2, 3 and 4.

    It's hard to compete with the CC torque on the back straights.

    Great driving! Are you going to be at Buttonwillow with the Viper Days crowd again? If so, I'll be sure to come by and say hi. I didn't see you around your car (when I was drooling over the Radicals parked next to you). A buddy of mine (Ken Adelberg) is dumping his Viper track car and dedicating his racing to his Radical. That is a very slick car. I hope that they can dial in the oversteer a bit better. It seemed to understeer quite a bit and they were having trouble dialing that out.

    I look forward to meeting you soon.

    What makes you say that? Which configuration(s) have you run at buttonwillow? I don't mind big willow, but I personally don't like streets of willow.
