Great pictures and video, I bet itís fun to look back and watch what you were actually doing...or not doing. Good learning tool.


And about the shifting, donít worry about it. I remember my first time driving a stick.
Thanks... I think.

I still did not make a list. The ACR next to me had one on his steering wheel. I congratulated him on that smart move.

I remembered to pull the accusump valve somewhere around lap 3 or 4 of the first session.

I did nail my "list" in sessions 4 and 5. So there's that.

There really is a lot going on at a track day ... the little things add up.

Man, you shift a TON there! How many times a lap anyway?
Thanks. I think I can modify a couple of the shifts there but it's a close ratio Richmond 5 speed so I think lots of shifting is just in the cards and it seems fairly consistent with the other videos I've watched there.

This is where being able to run on Sundays would really be advantageous. But I gotta get back to the fam.

Oh yeah. And there's a lot left in that car.

I think the truth is that you watch a little too much Fast and Furious before heading to the track.... It's all good, you can admit it .

Well it's not Vin Diesel driving but the videos of the guys I watch prior to running a track day I would say are driving a lot faster and furiously than me! Of course, once you get on track all that goes out the window and you don't recall a thing.


The power is good .... for now.

I'll buy that POS Camaro on the right coast for .10 on the dollar. Take it or leave it.
