My track doesn`t have a test day and we only get 5 laps of warmup/hotlaps on a mucky track before the 5 lap heats and a 15 lap feature. For me not being able to go every weekend it is hard to really learn what my car wants and how it is reacting. Seat time being so critical where do you guys find some. My best test so far has been in the farmers field for about 30 minutes I learned tons about what my car needs when I could try different things in a non competetive environment, to bad I had to stop when a neighbor came out of his house ****ED about the dustcloud I made over his house [IMG] So do you guy`s have any ideas about testing without making people really mad?

I know this will be censored, but **** only 5 laps in the heat and 15 lap main. That is horrible. I don't even think I could muster the effort to race that little. I used to race desert. We had 6 races in 10 months. Although you had about 5 hours in the car at each race. And I used to think that wasn't enough "seat time" to make the effort worthwile. I hope to God that you race that little at least once a week. I race every other weekend and it's at least 30 laps of good racing.
