Was that close to 240 mph on the main straight? That is smoking fast. I just opened it in youtube and realized the gauge is in km/h so that is more like 150 mph.

Can you re-post the YouTube link - I'm not seeing it in Greg's post.

Thanks

I wish I was a little guy I'd have you zip tie me in it so I could go for one lap in it.

Awesome the car did so well and it sounds like everyone had a good time. Car sounds awesome in the video.

The important question from here is, did you strap in and take a few laps for yourself????

Now imagine -- new car - zero seat time - Poor Benny Moon has to be "DA MAN" and not only is doing test and tune - and marching to Suttons orders (LOL) about do this and that because we're still dialing --- AND the man goes out and posts fast time of the day.

Hats off to Mister Moon.....

The rest of the crew has been THRASHING to keep this missile moving forward. AND OMG does it ever move forward!

Yes we know the video sucks - and there's all manor of things we will work on -- but being YouTube heros the first day out is not the goal. Trust me - we'll get better at this. It's a Vbox HD 2 camera system - and there's a ton of stuff you can do with it - but takes time to figure out. We will.


Our fast time of the day was a 1:56.174

What the people in the paddock are saying is the CW version is about 3 seconds slower than the normal CCW layout... Sadly it's also, so hot, and so smokey that at times is hard to even want to be "active" and suck in all that bad air -- and I thank everyone that is here helping -- the crew - Dylan - Greg (TOG) - Jeff - Randy.... and, of course Mister Ron Sutton.


OH -- AND SKIP the first 4 minutes ---- get right after it!! Go back and watch from the beginning later.... LOL

Default Second day - SECOND WIN

Today was basically more of the same --- tweak - fix - fuss - run - rinse and repeat.

I'm absolutely wasted after this weekend so I'm not even going to explain much -- because it's 8:30 and I feel like just crawling in bed.

We fussed with the video -- changed camera angle and picture in picture orientation. We DID change the track map - and for whatever reason the GPS overrides the selection and puts the 5 mile track map up..... WTF..... and couldn't find how to change the KPH to MPH.... so that is showing incorrect - looks like big ass numbers but you'll just have to do some math.

SECOND DAY - SECOND WIN..... mind you - all this running backwards stuff - the smokey air - the ash falling like rain..... it's a disaster out here right now. Just WOW. But here is THE BEAST.... for your listening and viewing pleasure.

So the start order is fastest out first -- and the BMW jumps out -- okay -- no problem - we'll run his ass down when we quit playing with stuff and Ron's voice crackles over the radio -- his usual "Okay! Giddy UP! --- watch the BMW who has been charging the whole time while Benny is messing around.... LOL It's just too cool to be at the track and watching this gap opening and opening and all of a sudden -- no more gap -- SEE YA!!

Awesome to say the least, loved watching that thing on track.

Track backwards or not he is one hell of a drive and smooth!

Congrats to the entire team on a successful weekend.
