Nice! Good weekend for that. Did you get any clean laps in without traffic?

What did that Scion FRS run for a lap time, any idea? That car is clean!

I think I know that 1M... I had a hard time shaking him off from my rear view.

Couldn't have asked for more perfect weather, that's for sure. Everything in the video is from the last and maybe fastest session of the day. I got in a few clean laps without traffic, but for my initial audience that would have been very boring to watch..

If I recall, was both a BRZ and a Scion that ran in one of the Intermediate classes. No idea on lap times but the Ferrari and other "faster" cars could only get away on the straights..

Glad to see a 1M out and actually being driven in its natural habitat lol

I REALLY like the BRZ. I want one, but my only gripe with the car is that it really is slow as shit in a straight line. I mean, 150 ft/lbs of torque or whatever it is, you will lose to a Honda Odyssey in a straight line... If it had another 40 or 50 horsepower I would argue it's one of the best affordable sports cars you can buy.

Suspension only.. and tires.

Michelin PSS
Ohlins R&T coilovers
Vorshlag camber plates
M3 subframe bushings
M3 front upper/lower control arms

Probably will do a write-up on those mods soon, I only had the coilovers, etc on for about 2 months, and have been to the track twice now with them.
