Nice idea. The B-spec cars also seem pretty fun. I instructed a guy in a Yaris a few weekends ago. I was skeptical going in, but we had a lot of fun and I left thinking "we need to get ten of these things among friends and run the **** out of them."

And reset the TTD track record...right?

Well, the TTD track record CW is 02:05.106[1]. Which is actually a few seconds slower than the TTE record.

I don't know what the process is to claim a track record, but I run under 2m at TWS with decent weather and traffic[2], so I don't think it's a real stretch to suggest that it is possible.

Of course, I realize you're trying to be a dick, but that just makes it more funny to me.

Remember that by California standards, we should be running 4 seconds under SM at a minimum ant that's a 55, lol.

There are no good videos of CW online. It's been like three maybe four years since I drove that direction, I remember nothing.

T7 is a bitch. Floor it at the entry of T2 and don't lift until you see God. He resides deep within the chicane.

Did not pop the CVs, popped the axle shaft between the CVs. The axles are completely custom. Ford Explorer diff housing with a 31-spline carrier (not 28) so everything is weird. Driveshaft Shop is on the case.

T7 flows nicely in this direction, not sure what the bitch part is there? Just don't turn in super early.

Agreed on T2. If you're a real man, you won't lift after T3 until you hit T15. Another mistake I see here, people fighting to hold a lower line onto the front straight; yes, it is less distance, but fighting the car costs MPH. Every bit of data I've taken says unwinding the wheel and letting the car ride up a bit, then pointing in a straight line towards the apex at start/finish (the front straight is actually a long curve, it does have an apex!) ends up being faster.

Entry into T10 (the carousel) is another place people give up a lot of speed. It should be light brake, turn in, and back on the gas for a bit; you should carry quite a bit of speed through T11. After T10, you should be flat until T6, except perhaps maybe a very light lift into T9 if you have to.

No way on T7. It's much better going CCW. We'll agree to disagree on that one.

+1 on TT-RC. I think we should also have TT-TV, that is TT Tow Vehicle. You will be allowed to disconnect your trailer.

You know, if I wasn't busy that weekend at Road Atlanta, or if it wasn't a 1200 mile, 19 hour tow I'd be half tempted to come down there myself to curbstomp TTD...

Heck, we have no problems running 5+ seconds under SM record times in our TTD/PTD cars, especially at a roval.

I would need to find some good in-car video though, being as I've never been there.

I may have to try to get down to TTD power and play, looks like the field will be near 5 people.

Looks like I'm out for this one guys. Based on the feedback I got here: https://www.miataturbo.net/meet-gree...rbo-bug-71816/

...and the delays in shipping the car, there won't be enough time to get the car ready. Next time.
