Thunderschleife (Thunder Hill) Laps

The last lap was the only clean lap in the video, and it was still sloppy. My brake pedal was to the floor (Which I learned later was a busted brake line. Weird eh?) The track is a blast though. I really like the new section that they added. It may be a little too tight for the 25 Hour though. Will present for some dangerous passing. We will see what they decide to do.

Thank you! The setup is completely stock. All I've done to the car so far is Apex Arc-8 18x10 +25 square with Nitto NT-01's, and the RPI GTM Race Exhaust. Other than that, I haven't touched anything. I need some suspension though...this thing is like a boat without it. Big and heavy!

You as well I was gonna post some earlier but didn't want to thread jack. Your driving skills and car control are very impressive.

Great driving; thanks for the video. Just out of curiosity, how much experience do you have with road course lapping and/or racing?
