There is nothing like the smell of a new car! Except for a good burn out! The crew did an awesome job with the paint and decal theme! I just love it! My NASCAR Whelen Koehlke/GreenPro landscaping late model #4 was awesome on test and tune day this past Saturday at Kil-Kare.
First, I went out just to bed in the brakes, unlike a regular car, there is a process of getting the new brake pads up to their maximum stopping power. My best lap was in the 18 seconds, I bet people were talking about that time. The second practice, we still were working on the brakes and we noticed the wheels were rubbing just a little. We got that fixed by trimming off about a 8th of an inch. In the next test, I got it down in the 15’s, in part to the fuel from Estes Oil in Franklin the only place to by race fuel. The next time, Gary gave me some advice about my line. I then picked up ¾ of a second. The last time out, Gary said I could pick up my corner speed and we hit our bench mark for the day. We loaded up! What an awesome first day out. The guys and I are very pleased with the car.
