Am I the only one that kept putting my hand up to block the sun so I could actually see what was going on?

2.0 turbo with mega squirt vs 1.8 super with no management.

Hustlers brakes too much. He could carry much better speed through 4 and down the hill in the bowl (turn 9). Maybe it was his ballon shaped tires.

Its a little scary to go 130mph then threshold brake in 3 and 8 up a crest. The car kept unloading at the crest and locking up. John agreed the suspension is horrific. I'll have that squared away and better brakes to run there next month. That was only my second session too considering the first were lead/follow.

Good job guys. Hustler's car is def fast, he was gapping you 10+ cars on the straights. Then you were catching him under the brakes zones. Cool vid thanks for posting up. Can't wait for next year when were running around in big packs like a Harley gang, but in miatas...lol

John was riding and we were trying different stuff, particularly where the surface changed, and holding higher gears because I have the torque to do so. Jeff knows this track really well. I've had 2 really slow lead follow sessions (extreme gayness), and this was my second session at speed.

I've now seen a total of roughly 25-minutes on the track, and black once, lol.

My suspension is a heinous set of 6" wide 99 wheels with 205's, Tein Flex with 10/8 springs, big front sway, RB rear sway, and door bars. Since adding the door bars the car attempts to kill me on entry and exit. Next time I go to the track I'm putting on the stock bar, and preparing to take it off. I have a lot of work to do.

Since adding the door bars, what did that change with your entry/exits? More skittish? Less settle time?
