Fantastic presentation of an extremely well planned and executed qualifying round: bravo! You have set the bar extremely high.

While in the context of the fact that q is not that critical and my placement is pathetic so it really does not matter one iota, I still have to ask: I could have sworn that on the video you said 6.587 seconds for my #48 Cuda in GT while the result list shows 6.875. Did I mis-hear?

Again: fantastic job!

Hey Super thanks for the drive.... but don't blame Dennis on that build and poor showing of my CanAm car..... I just used Dennis's body mounting ideas on it. It was all my build.... first time to try silly's on a scratchbuild car.

We run them on The Stone at Dennis's with foams and it would rock but.... silly's.... I just do not know whats up with it on silly's. My other plastic proxy cars are doing OK but this one.... When it comes home it will get foams! I ran another scratch car with NSR rubber and it's fast at Dennis's. Maybe too much weight????

Thanks for the good Q run guys.
Hopefully the Cuda' will race as good as she qualified.
Run it like you stole it.

Thanks Marc for the Q times.
The top half of P class is packed together like a can of sardines.
Should be a wild one come race day.

Thanks Marc for the great Q rounds. Nice to see the top spots are continuing to be shared by so many fine cars. Looking forward to the races on Saturday.. Again thanks for all of your efforts to help keep the CanAm one of the favorite proxy series on SCI...

Ya, right.

Just been watching some more of that Ustreaming, that sure is a beauty of a race room, and both the driving and the production are top notch. Great place to be hosting a proxy, thanks for all you put into it Marc!

I don't even mind my crap qualifying position, cause I can see how easy my car is to drive, and that counts for so much with proxy cars. Besides, any idiot can field a Slot.it GT40 or some NSR thing ...

Yes but how many idiots can combine a Slot.it and NSR thing?
