mmc 1/31/09

(^pics from ponycars.net more here)

since we had to pick up the rs from a local monticello shop for a powerplant 'refresh' since our first mmc event, what better time than the morning of yesterday's event. (thanks for the ride up mike!) the crank had seized at the very end of our first event- i'm guessing oil pump failure due to high mileage. the 35k mileage replacement engine runs like a champ and we were back in business.

not sure everyone knows the story but adil and i share the 2.5rs 'rallycar'. not only does splitting expenses make sense- but the valuable seat time we get riding along with each other, giving feedback, discussing technique/lines, etc.. allows us to improve our skills at a faster rate. it doesn't hurt that we've competed against each other for years along the way autoxing and get along very well.

i'd highly recommend doing the shared car thing with the right person if the events you run are codriver friendly. adil uses it for family trips/rallyx/mmc, while i also get to bash it through the woods since my self-preservation gene is missing.

anyways- here's some in-car from yesterdays event.

MMC winter driving series 1.31.09 from dan cheung on Vimeo.

plenty of great footage but tried to keep it short. (thanks for the wide angle AC!.. i need to buy a DVR.) adil was fond of my ninja reverse move (while the car was out of control i figured i might as well be ready to back it out) and i hope you can appreciate his badass run. very smoooth, clean and tidy. we didn't catch my first ultra 360 (spun the car all the way around at speed without missing a beat) but i did capture my end of day attempt on camera.

we had a TON of fun, the north course was AWESOME (4th gear on the back straight!), and MMC put on another world-class event. i can't compliment the very friendly and professional MMC folks enough!

for all of you that haven't attended yet- beg borrow or steal snow tires! get out there!
