    Wet laps at COTA

    We had four Atoms at last weekends Chin Motorsports event at COTA. Even though it was wet everyone still got out to play.

    I thought it didn't rain in Texas. That looks like a great track,even damp.
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    You guys were really getting around in the wet. I found it to be too cold and wet. At one point I ran hot water in my cool shirt.

    Drove 1500 miles for two days of wet, cold and a slick track. Did not get to run on Sunday. Car did not like the Oregon weather even with wets.

    Would be an awesome track in the sun. Will have to consider going again in April.

    That looks like the new light package so is this the new 3S and, if so, is this the sound of the new turbo? I definitely like it better than the high pitched whine of the supercharged ones.

    That sounds normally aspirated to me. As far as blower whine,I prefer the sound of the blower...but I like the extra power capable with a turbo. In the rain...normally aspirated would be my choice...

    Obviously some over steer there but it looks like you had plenty of grip/fun - well driven was good to watch
