do you have to use your own car? if so, just think of what a day at the track will do to your fuel mileage! LOL wink.gif

yes you use your own car, and I thought about fuel mileage...I think the name of the game is to get it as LOW as possible while at the track.

See if I can break 16 MPG.

this is the gateway to GTi modifications.
you'll want the car to be stiffer and faster, and start going to AutoX's and then we'll never see you agian becuase you'll be driving you GTi around exotic race tracks and shit.

I was just looking at a scatterplot of my fuel economy with a moving average trendline.



My mileage hasn't been very good lately. I blame a combination of more aggressive driving style, carrying more people/stuff, and the winter fuel. That last data point on the graph is better but it's also misleading because that was just a 4 gallon top-off because I wanted to have as full of a tank as possible before coming to SLO where gas is 30 cents more per gallon.

It's a combination of being weird, cluelessness about my weirdness, and being self-aware of my cluelessness.

if you are self-aware of your cluelessness, I guess that means you are not really clueless.

Ooooo.... deep.

no, I know I'm clueless but I don't know about what exactly. It's kinda nebulous.

For some reason the phrase that I'm thinking of is "pea soup" but I don't think it's applicable here.

nebulous : cloudy; lacking definite form or limits

I was seriously looking at doing something similar come spring .... i have two options

1. Drive a Z06 around the Texas Motor Speedway

2. Take advanced driving courses.

You can add and subtract courses as per will.
