Prepping for the 2013 SCCA Spring Nationals this Weekend

Ali and I met my parents in Lincoln, Nebraska today for the 2013 SCCA Spring Nationals. This is a full four days of racing with the ProSolo Friday and Saturday and a Championship Tour Sunday and Monday. We have a solid field in ESP with 10 drivers for the ProSolo and 16 for the Tour. Rain is in the forecast, but I'm hoping for a few dry sessions so I can evaluate the suspension changes I have made to the car.

Which to choose.....................
Over the break, I went up in overall spring rate, had the dampers dynoed and did some maintenance on the front suspension. Luckily, we arrived today in time to take a few practice starts and get some time on the Evo School test n' tune course. The balance felt good with the new spring setup and the car had quicker/more linear turn-in.
Cleaned up and dynoed damper and new RF spring ready to go back on the car 
 After the dampers and new springs were in, I installed a Scroth Rallye Cross harness for the driver seat. It is a DOT 4-pt. harness that bolts into the factory seat belt mounts.

Even the toolbox got a makeover - I finally know where tools are
The racing starts tomorrow at 9AM. ESP is running in the 3rd group for the ProSolo and in Heat 4 for the Championship Tour later this weekend. I've put links to the Live Timing and Video below and a picture of big spiders in my shop. Enjoy.
