    Default Chasing Porsches at Spring Mountain

    Haven't been racing much because of being busy and such, so took the Wolf out for some fun this last weekend with the Porsche race group. Had a blast with them and it was cool they allowed a few Wolfs in with their practice sessions. My buddies Turbo Wolf could easily motor past even the fastest Porsche in the straights. My Wolf is a 2.4 Litre N/A so some of the Porsches could pull on me in the straights if I didn't get a good run on them out of the turn. They didn't have much of a chance in the turns because of the highly advanced aero and lightweight of the Wolf. Great fun on a beautiful weekend. Here is a little video. (Oh, I forgot to load the correct map so it is wrong in the video)

    Very cool Apollo. Love the sound that motor makes. Who makes the 2.4L engine?

    It is a Honda k24 sourced from the plant in Italy. I think the Turbo runs a Peugeot based engine that has something like 125 more hp than the Honda. These are the two that are most popular cars for our Wolf spec classes at SM.

    Great video. Really shows how downforce and braking make a huge difference! Once you got through the initial traffic, you really get a sense for how much speed you can carry in a clean lap.
