Great!We had a great day with only about an hour of rain right after lunch but dried up nicely for the rest of the afternoon,We had open sessions as we could have used more entrants and there was almost too much track time for some people We had great people which made the day really easy to manage.
My new car is great with the M DCT and it makes you look real good very easily and the extra ratios do seem to make the car quicker as I use 3 gears vs the 2 of my 6 speed car.The car feels a lot stiffer & balanced thanks to the combo of the 7MA & Carbon roof of which I am not sure what makes the greater difference but the combo seems to help.The Stoptechs seem like a huge step forward even with the street pads and seem to have eliminated my hot brake trail braking oversteer that I always seemed to have with my stock brake setup on my other car.Overall I am quite happy with my choice!

Do not miss our next day on the 21st which is a Saturday

Definitely a great day. It was nice to get the new power out to the track. Looking forward to the next one.

When I have some time, I will post up a vid or two.

With all that air forced in, maybe a venue to let the car stretch it's legs might be in order.

Where is that, ZWEAPON ???
He's so busy laughing, he forgot to drive.

The telemetry is cool. I still need to play with the overall layout, will play with that a bit before the next track day. The data captured that you can see using the Circuit Tools software that comes with it is pretty cool.

Agreed! Worst case, Watkins Glen is at the end of the month!

Nice! Have fun! I am looking forward to seeing your car at the track. Sounded like a beast when I saw it. When I saw your car parked in Oakville, even from a distance I figured it had to be yours even though you dont live out this way.

Yup that's why the wall is there, for privacy.
