I am totally hooked. I just want to get back out there and improve! I left a lot of seconds out there at the end of the back straight (need to find my braking point), the keyhole (how many G's can I pull?), and the gut check through turns 14 and 15 (where is the end of this straight?).

Y'all can see some of my easy-to-fix oops' in the video here.

This was after Franklin's coaching, so I was trying to do everything he taught me...

Do you like the soundtrack?

Yeah. I didn't hear about that rule until later. The only excuse I have was that I was the second one out on the track (behind the 1 Series M), so the track was clear behind me.

But still, you're right!

Nice job! I like your line into the sweeper...shows that you have guts! If you are driving that line, its means that you are trail braking. So I would recommend trying to enter the diamond's edge by just shooting straight between through the right and left curbs and trail brake around the the second apex. You'll catch a lot of people there.

Those are stock pipes. Nice sound, right? What helps is the external lavalier mic positioned on the back license plate frame, wired to the GoPro.

Excellent! Franklin was urging me to go deeper into Diamond's Edge, and every time I did, it helped tremendously with my exit speed!

Will that work in the CW direction too?

Yeah but it's a little trickier because there's a switchback. CCW is not as bad since you can just keep the tail out if you oversteer...its a pretty big turn onto the back straight.
