Man I can't wait... We'll have to go play... Hopefully I can get you from the dig so you can play catchup... Last time I was in the Bay, I didn't get a chance to see his car so I'm looking forward to visiting.

Yes I do think Prem will beat me but it will be because he will be making more peak HP than me. We both learned from the previous events to sandbag a bit on the crank HP rating. We will both be making closer to 600 wheel HP but I have a feeling he will be making a lot more and his car is lighter. But...as Prem knows, in the past I've beaten him in our 335's when he was making quite a bit more power...so I have to admit that a little strategy doesn't hurt
