Special Thanks to Hubert Young for organizing this track day.
Big thanks to Rob for helping me bleed the air out of my master cylinder the night before. 

   This was my first trip back to the track since I had the Griggs Watts Link installed and I'm going to have to break some old IRS habits but the grip from the rear was excellent. As you'll hear, I had quite a bit of understeer but that will be tuned out before my next track event. It definitely didn't hurt my lap times too much as I again improved my personal best running this track config so I can't wait to find out what it does when it's dialed in.  My last time running up over the top of T5 netted me a 2:10 but this day I was able to run consistent 2:09's then a single 2:08.81 according to my longacre hot lap timer. The other nice part to the day was that I didn't drive home with any broken parts! WhooHoo!!

Enjoy the footage!

Session 1. 3/4 of Lap 2 and I'm following Stan B's GR40'd Saleen. The noise you hear from my car in T3 and T5 is brake moan from the new rear Hawk HP Plus's. It went away once the pads had worn down a bit.  Click
