Default Trackspeed Engineering @ Thunderhill - NASA May 19-20, 2012

TSE spent this past weekend at Thunderhill putting some hours on Rover's new TSE N/A-spec longblock and having a little fun as well. I have a bunch of video, including the start of Sunday's enduro.

We'll start with Sunday's long (42 minute) sprint race. I start P2, get shuffled back, and slowly pick my way back to P2 by the end. Lots of good, close racing throughout.

God I love Thunderhill, even more than Laguna.. for me...

I'm not nearly as good of a driver as you, so feel free to ignore my comments as they're purely anecdotal.

In turn 2-3-4 I noticed you apex and hold the inside edge of the track and this seems to let you gain some time. What lets you get away with it vs the other drivers that start in the middle of the track on corner entry?

I noticed toward the beginning you do a little nudge then throw the car through the turns. I'm curious about this technique and why you employ it. My guess is since as the race went on you got progressively smoother and smoother you were working out your turn in points.

Nice pass attempt at 38:40, you have ***** like Senna - props for putting it all out there
