As far as fun, how does that track compare to Sebring?

It is much more a horsepower track. It is fun if you have power on the superspeedway section or I think it would be frustrating there. The cars with superior handling and braking can take advantage of the two big braking zones and the infield section. Every track has a personality. This one is pretty fun. At least it was for me.

I thought it was a fun track once you get the hang of it but I still like Sebring more.

Exactly. @daytona everyone i talk to... >130mph in the banking say the is "meh.." or "boring". Everyone with a fast car that is <130 in the banking get out of the car shaking saying "oh my god!!"

Published another short video. Spun silver Silvia is evident inside the second hairpin.

Was that a slip at 1:33? Looks like a Daytona DE brings out all the high power rolling road blocks. Probably makes a much better race track than DE track since it's all about braking. But no arguing tracking Daytona has a high cool factor.

Yeah, I saw the spun out Silvia and tapped the brakes instinctively, but the car was still loaded up coming out of the bend. It made the tail ease out for a moment. It doesn't take much when you are on the edge. Good eye!

IDK. I only ran RaceChrono once during the weekend and that was the second session on Saturday when I was still learning the track. It says 103.2mph through the middle of the bend then, but I was getting braver as I got more sessions in. RaceChrono isn't much fun if you are revlimiting on the back and front stretches. You can't enjoy trying to get faster times.

I kept pushing my student to use the whole track out area to the rumble strips instead of binding it up after the kink. He only wanted to go mid way across and then tuck back to the left edge.

There is plenty of room if you overshoot it and go straight off to the right, but you have to have a little talk with yourself about not trying too hard to save it and looping it to the left. Bad things happen to the left.

It freaked me out a little the first few times but by the end of the weekend I was flatout through it until the braking zone just before the decreasing radius right hander.

The kink is a text book turn (rovals) found at loads of tracks and usually yields quicker lap times to give it all up for speed through and sacrifice your entry in the following turn (with a focus on braking.) Similar to t3 at roebling also- where you can stay in it longer, deeper and sacrifice t4 entry.

For reference, I was on gently used SM7's in a full weight '96.

Ls2 coils mounted and wired. Need to sleeve wires and put proper ends on spark plug wires where they meet the coils. I ordered the Taylor ends from Slummit Racing recommended in the other thread. Changed dwell to 5 and cranking to 6 and it fired up. I also need to open the gap on the plugs.

We bracket bros! I have one as well. I need to make some spacers for the backside bolts but other than that, its a nice clean setup. Are you going to re-boot the NGKs?

I'm putting new ends on the stock type wires on the coil end and trimming the length a bit. I'm not a fan of the wires that let garbage down in the plug holes.
