VIR PCA Event Nov 17-19

It was a good 5 days. Started with 2 days on the Patriot course with Kaizen Autosport to brush up on race craft skills. Highly recommend Kaizen. Car was immediately quick (50sec laps with more to get after) on Patriot, a short course well suited to the Rush. I was down for a bit with a TPS failure, but thanks to Bruce (and shout out to Rush owner John), I was back up and running to explore the pace on VIR. First time at VIR full course so not quite using all the track yet. Still, got enough pace to see the magic of the uphill esses and south bend. Carolinas PCA was extremely helpful and welcoming. Hope to be back next year. Thank you Bruce for all your support... pretty amazing.

I'm a Rush owner!

Hi Bruce, thanks for the welcome. I was talking to Cale a couple of weeks ago and he mentioned you were in NH. We had just got home from Billerica MA the day before.
I checked out your track today and it looks amazing! You are about 7 hrs from me, but I’d love to come down and spend a couple of days there if possible.
I was a big Ducati fan and raced at Loudon, back when it was Bryar Motorsport Park, so I might have been at your shop as well! I raced at Mosport and Shubie in the 80’s and 90’s, so our paths may very well have crossed.

New Member and new Rush!


Thanks for starting this. For the group, Gene and friends bought ours together, mine is chassis 141. Couple more in the area are expecting theirs shortly.

The car is laugh-out-loud fun, a great learning platform, and comes with the exceptional support from Bruce. He and Susie have made the process so easy. Bruce has a unique trait that he combines patience (acquainting us to its operation and care) along with a get it done approach... and personally is just such a delight to be around.

This car also will take about $15K of running costs out of tracking my GT3 (would be a ton more if I track day insured it). I know, I made the cardinal mistake of tallying track day costs.

Shout out to Matt Romanowski and the AiM team for all the help getting me up to speed on the Dash Logger and SC.

Also special mention to Jim, Mike and the team at Club Motorsport to offer such a wonderful venue to begin and enjoy this journey

Looking forward to a Kaizen Autosport 2 day event and then the 3 days with Carolinas PCA at VIR week after next.

A few notes from our searches:

  3. The Interior Height needs to be 8' to allow clearance
  4. We easily fill the nose of our trailer with Tools, VP Cans and Gear and No Tires or Wheels. Having (2) cars up and one down would allow for more room.

Rush Series Rulebook mumblings

Yeah, I found it last night. Rules are very simple, and I don't think that's a bad thing.

You can't change springs, but you can tune shocks and differentials, which is interesting.

Shock and diff tuning is sometimes black magic and beyond the scope of most gear heads even.

I change springs on my full bodied E46 M3 endurance car, but have never tried to revalve the struts....

But the Rush seems a great platform to learn that.

I'm definitely interested in spec racing this thing, but I also want to dominate my local hill climbs.... And that's going to require me to take the car in and out of 'spec' based on what I'm doing that weekend.

New member, SR on order!

Will you be running at sebring? What groups do you usually run with?
Hi John,
I have been with Mark and Chin there many times and have been with Track Guys there but it’s been years since they have had an event in FL.
I will be running Sebring, but won’t be able to commit to an event till Fall, November-December. A few friends are
Planning on meeting up there with Chin in November and that will be the earliest I will be able to attend.
Looks like the build will be up for us in July and then I am working in NY and will have to run down to pick up the car and of course going to do our first day of break in at HSR.
I am in group 3 in NASA as well and will hopefully advance to group 4 early next year and then the race license. I have done some time trials in the Shelby’s but as I stated this will be our first race car so all the input and knowledge is invaluable. Thank you!
