Pocono Single Infield Very Fast~!

It was my first time trying out the Pocono Single Infield and what a TRACK!@ I was at about 145 or possibly 150+ on both straights and was entering the first NASCAR turn at about 125 to 130~. I was again~ very very impressed with the car and wow those NT-01's sticks like a glue. People say the course is built for vetts and maybe stangs and cobra's but I wouldn't be surprised to smell their s* on corners and even on fast turns~! Highly recommended ~!



P.S: I don't have ADD... my fingers just got tired and trying to loosen up a little.. lol..

This sure is a fast track. Those long straights allow for letting it all out. Would you mind posting your set up - tire size, brake pads, suspension if any, other. Any issues?
Nice video. Thanks

It was a very fast track for sure!!! I have NT 01s on VMR 710s. 18 inch 275/35 all around with H&R springs. No issues to report except my front rubs a little when turning but not to cause a serious trouble. Oh and my brakes are pagid RS 19's and they are a true endurance pads. I still have about 50 % of its life left and every time I come in to check my brakes, they hardly wear out!! With motul 600 brake fluid, I didn't have any brake fade issues. Hope this helped.

Did you run out of rpms, or could you have reached the limiter?

How hard were you braking for NASCAR 1 and 2? How rough was the tunnel turn? The NASCAR guys always comment about having a dip or rough spot in the turn.

I was shifting from 4th to 5th at around 7300, 7400?? I don't exactly remember but I didn't run out of rpms since I shifted a bit earlier, trying not to burn the motor up too quick.. lol.. You could've gone much faster if you could but since it was my first time being on the Single Infield, I was pretty much being safe.

I wasn't braking real hard when entering the turn 1, just a tap and slowed down from about 150 to 125~130. Similar on turn 2 except I down shifted to 4th right before entering the turn just to make sure I can down shift to 2nd entering the sharp turn. You can go 5th all the way down to 2nd but I'm not on that level yet... still mastering heel and toe so.. and plus it was a very hard braking zone Oh and the turn has alot of rough spots as you can see on my video, it's shaking real hard on tunnel turn. I think Pocono in general has lots of rough spots, dips and debris.
