Default Sick S14 at MSR NasaTT - who's in the red NA?

Seems to be a drift car in action at MSR with that big *** ebrake - none the less, it's pretty dam fast - so which one of you were driving the red NA (so it looked) seen at 2:50? Not bad

That car makes some wicked turbo ruckus.

Either that car didn't have floorboards or it needed a good vacuuming. Lots of debris flying around in that cockpit.

I knew I had seen it somewhere before - can't wait to meet up with him at NOLA once NasaTT starts hitting that place!
Flying debris - I noticed that too. Someone had an off at some point - or TX is a nasty dirty place

Depends on where you like to hang out. I'm guessing off as well at one point.

I am in that vid too at 9:00. It's a 500+hp hill climb car with super-expensive crap all over it. That evo that passes me makes something retarded like 450whp...and look how hard the 240 passes him.

I want to hit NOLA too but 10-hours of driving, in a track car and expecting to make it back is a little rough. 3-hours to Austin, 5-Tulsa, no problem. 10-hours is a haul.

Thought that was you. Who was that at 4:50? Is that a point by or mechanical failure or something?

Would love to see him and Rado go at it.... have you been to an event when he was running?

You aint kidding - 10hrs one way would SUCK in a track car. You'd have to haul it

I went to a Redline race a couple years ago, Rado's car is pretty damn impressive.

My only tow vehicle option gets 8mpg...I need something else.

yeah that 240 was faaassssttt. guy driving it is the current american iron regional champion too. he must know the owner of the 240 or something.
speaking of driving times, for me it's 7hrs. to msr-c, 12hrs. to hallett, 5hrs. to tws. only easy drives are msr-houston and harris hill at 3hrs. each. i'm a sucker for new tracks g.splicer, so i'll def. meet you @ nola. maybe with a few more hp by then to help me keep up with you.

Pretty sure that is Wags. I believe he came out late and was still on warmup, giving pointbys so as to not impede anyone.

NOLA is already on the NASA schedule for Dec. 31, Jan 1.

I can't make it, but would love to see the hangovers for that first session on the 1st.

Yeah, no joke on all the turbo noises, jesus.

That white porsche (gt3?) stayed in his rear-view the whole time too.

What kind of rubber and how wide is this car running? It seems like it needs a LOT more.

Makes sense... He was just doing it with great vigor!

Are there external pics of this car? Now I'm interested.

Edit:

NVM, didn't know it was the Pink Pikes Peak s14. That explains the over the top turbo sound.
