Nice vid and looks like a fun track. Your car sounds beastly!

Is this a relatively narrow track, or is it the camera view (or just me)?

Fun to watch. What a beautiful course--nice amount of runoff. It does look relatively narrow.

I'm so used to hearing the M3 V8 from my car and watching videos of other M3s on track, so the turbo Mitsubishi sounds so strange--kind of like the pneumatic tube system they used to use at drive-thru banks before ATMs got popular. Yeah, I'm old.

It looks like your friend's camera mount was loose--the camera does a weird pan relative to his car at around 1:45 and 2:20. Also, what happened near the end at around 16:00? Did he miss a shift coming into the turn?

His tires are losing grip, so he decided to pit in. I have catless and AA exhaust..sounds really nice above 7k rpm~

Nice video!

We were next to you during the race weekend, with the big white trailer. We had the e46 and e36 race cars there.

Nice video. Putnam is a fun little track. Feels like 1 straight and 2 big carousels and thats a lap. Have to head back soon. Nice driving
