Great video. I recognize some of the corners from the track when I was in Maranello this summer! Too bad they weren't testing the 458 when I was there.

Good stuff,

the track was very slippery!
There were some hot rods that went in the first run and there was so much oil used for those idiots that the rest of us barely got any traction off the line

broken_arrow and myself were both disappointed with the results we were both running a second slower then what we are supposed to run!

I was getting 14s in my car (should be getting 13s)
and he was getting 13s in his cls63. (should be getting high 12s)

However, the drive was amazing went there topless and came back like that too, very scenic with a few curves

S - sorry I didn't make it out to Cayuga for a few runs with you but it sounds like I really would have had some traction issues also as my rears are quite low now (I got 2 seasons from them so I will be looking to replace them when I get the winters on).

Went to the Leafs game Sat night and went out afterwards so I was not at my best Sunday am. I did manage to wash the car on Sunday and make use of the great day by taking the kids for a few runs up and down the escarpment in the afternoon. One of the nicest November weekends I can remember in awhile.

Wow, they seem to really enjoy themselves back there

Well no worries you had a nice family day on sunday after your partying the night before , my rears are also in pretty similar condition to yours, so hence traction issues!

What kind of numbers did you get last time at cayuga?
