Default Thunder hill troubles

So my car ran like crap most of the day until I re-flashed my ms, and I just put on my splitter w/no wing so the balance was quite awesome for drifting. An instructor I passed Emailed me the video from in his car.

Aero is good.

Turn 9 can be deadly at those high speeds. Nice save!

I'm sure, I was having trouble all day with the rear, I hung it out there even more than that on turns 1,2,5,and 10. But only went off on 10, and was able to point it of and not go sliding off sideways. I plan to have my wing and defuser done for the miata challenge next year, I'm still working on designing the wing but it should be done soon and I should be able to produce them for at least.a couple hundred dollars less then the APR ones out there now.

you've got some major ***** for hanging the back end out on turn 1. Mind if I ask your lap times?

I didn't time, I was just there to test stuff and I knew I was going to have some problems, so I didn't think it was worth the 20% the cost of my track time to have times. Last time I timed there I ran a 2:05 but that was a completely different car and not in the red group, gready turbo, soft springs, no areo, half of a cage, street brakes, and a lot less seat time. on heat cycled out 6 year old hosiers. But even as crappy as the car was doing I never had anyone come up behind me all day in the red group with NCRC. And I had fun. Which is what its all about.
