    Yup, looks like fun ;)

    What kind of camera and camera mount are you using? Your video is really nice and smooth compared to a lot of the jumpy shit I see posted most of the time...

    no, the motor is just really quiet. only thing i have is aem intake and the CTR cams. when you hear the motor, that is WOT. you do have to slow down on the uphill at turn 2. i had spun out at the top of the hill on that right hand turn the session before, so i was being a little more cautious on it. :)

    I saw it...smooth as silk...but no sound...arrgh..

    Rule #1: When racing on a road courses, keep your tires on the asphalt...

    Rule #2: Learn from your mistakes

    great bit of driving. Seems like you obeyed Rule #2 since you didn't get any video of you breaking Rule #1. The same cannot be said for the white 'vette or the Legends car. A couple of nice clean passes. I liked it.

    How hard is it to concentrate on your line with the 'vettes & ITB RX-7's running upon you like that?

    my buddy has the end of my spin out on turn 2 on another video, i may post it later, you dont' see much though. i just enetered the turn too hot, lifted when i was light, rear end rotated, lesson learned :)
    ya, there was also a spec miata that crashed on turn 10 also (same as the legend) went backwards into the wall on the exit of the turn (this is where most cars crash on this track). i dont mind the other cars who move faster than me, i see them coming up, and i can predict where they are going to go. in some of the other videos i have, there was a full race porsche on the track, that guy was pretty scary how fast he would move, he would come out of nowhere, the car was just insane. i do need to work on my braking, i just don't have any confidence in this setup, i'm used to my 4 pot wilwoods with hawk black pads, that thing had soem wonderful braking torque. i just need to get used to these stock calipers and pads (using ferodo pads).
