Welcome back, John! Try to attend an Open Track Day at TWS one Friday afternoon between now and the TMS event.

To make your day, here go a couple of shots from 04/21/13 of the new and improved 0086 (too big?):

Do it via tires! Slap on some 225/45-15 Hoosiers A6; that should be good for two seconds.

Yup, yup. Not going to A6s just yet, but I'm going to give the RRs a whirl next time I order tires. From what I've heard, 1-2s isn't out of the question for these at TWS.

I've also got a few bits on order that should give me another 5hp or so. Not a lot, but it can't hurt.

Estimated rear-wheel horsepower is 225

Unfortunately, my Traqmate decided to record the laps from Sunday's first session but not the second session. So, no data from the laps featured in the Epic Video.

I don't even know what my top speed was on the big straight, as my Traqmate display obscured the speedometer (sitting on the steering column).
