Scuba, come to a CCA event next year when they run it here. They'll show you the fastest line.

SpeedVenture runs a FAST track. That second chicane is WIDE OPEN.

Are you listening to the radio...? Turn that off!

You can carry at least 20mph more through the banking. Consider picking up a BT1 so you can log OBD2 via bluetooth in Harry's -- it will let you look back and see how much earlier (and more) you can get on the gas

Does the BT1 pull mph as well? This was the first time I got harrys to actually work so I'll probably pick up the BT1 for my next track day

Great to meet you and thanks for the pointers. I'm very scared when I hit the banks. The videos I posted were of my fatest laps (on sunday) but on saturday I was pushing about 10-12mph faster on bank 1 & 2. Next time around I'll definitely try it faster.

As for music I know it's not the good but it was the last 2 sessions of day two and I helped me focus.

Yup! Pulls all OBD2 data. RPM, speed, throttle position, and some other stuff.

Nice write-up.

Did you run with traction control on? In the video, I don't see any oversteers while exiting any corners.

Yeah I usually drive with VDC in R mode. It does allow for some slip. I tried a new tire size this time and the car was understeering compared to before where I would get oversteer on the exit of turn 5-6 as well as the Penis.
