I'm sure I did!

Haven't done Big Willow since February. Too long. Will be there on 12/14, though (Speed Ventures, Bimmer Challenge).

Wow, Cody, you are TEARING UP every track you touch these days. Nice!

Do you have video recorded of any of your laps? I'd love to see this driving. You can't be dropping these bombshell times on us and not have any video! Don't hold out on us man!

Thanks. I feel like I could almost go flat thru 8. But I get scared let off then get back on it. I'm tempted to get aero as I know If I had it, it's not a problem but being my only car ...

Data is nice, but always more entertaining to watch and a learning experience if the driver is in the video. Let's see them hands!

After we've been tracking a while, we all pretty much drive the same line. So, the videos of just the track is rather monotonous.. *yAwN~~*

Actually, though, even seeing the driver in the video is not that entertaining/enlightening. Just watch those time attack videos (RTA, GTA, etc). They all drive the same way and same line, lulz.

Oh yeah, T8 is pretty scary. Due to the rough track surface there and tighter radius, I think it's scarier than T2 at ACS.

Re: aero, I'm in the same boat. Just don't like the idea of putting all that stuff on a perfectly-nice daily. Start off with just the wing, and inevitably, it'll progress to some killer splitter at the front (deep & sturdy, plus those metal tie-rods, etc), then even canards, etc. So far in my mind, that's more trouble than it's worth. Plus, then you'll be going much faster, which will require bucket seats with 6-point harness. Where does it end? At this point, I'm just resigned to the fact that, yes, fast lap times are nice (which is an indication of how well the car is setup), but you can still have tons of fun without all those aids if the focus is on driving, as versus lap times.

Quite frankly, and not to take anything away from Cody, I'm more impressed with your lap times than those of heavily-mod'd cars.

I like watching the vidoes with data so that I can get an idea of how fast folks are taking turns and where they are braking and accelerating (as points of reference). My whole thing is wanting to have a street car that I can take to the track. I'm just not a big fan of having to trailer my car out to the track....if I'm going to do that I might as well just buy a non-streetable track car. Bad thing for me is that I have no room in the car to bring an extra set of tires so I won't be able to run Hoosiers.

If I went flat out thru 8, I would probably have to change my underwear each lap.

Damn, weather.com says 10% chance of rain for Sat (0% for Sun), and wunderground.com says 40% chance of rain for Sat. >:I

Depending on what the forecast looks like by Wed or Thu, I may switch to Sunday.
