lol at

The pros complained that the tires and brakes on the Evo were toast by the time they got to drive. So to prove it results were based on driver skill Emilio Cervantes took the Evo out for two more laps. What do you know, he drove a 2:10.46 within half a second of his original time and still half a second faster then our fastest professional driver

Funny thing is it was actually a 2:09.5, about .2 faster than my first two laps in the car and almost 2 seconds faster than the fastest Pro that had just hopped out of the car. They didn't quite get that right. It was funny to see every single driver on the TrackHQ team hanging over the pitwall timing that extra lap with their smartphones as I went past. Also left out that I beat the fastest Pro in the Z06 and by about 2 seconds.

Congratulations, this is very impressive. It's a damn shame all you guys are socialist authoritarians or I'd move out there.

This inspires me to drive like a man this weekend at TWS and HHR.

Minor issues but it was still fast. Felt like the left front damper was going away. Irregular pulsating from brakes that felt and looked like pad deposition. Still, the car was super fast and stopped amazingly well. You just had to ignore the pedal feel and twitchiness under braking.
