At one point he said steady hands through this part. I was thinking I hope you have steady throttle tip in. If you Listen he just gives it enough pedal until it spun. He never really went WOT . Maybe on the straights, We were on the throttle longer then I would have been on a dry track . Impressive skills. On the 166 straight I was hoping my breaks would hold. My tune was pretty aggressive for laps but the car was flawless.

Even in the rain my rears were so sticky and hot I could not understand how that was possible. Guess what rear tires I had on ?

I just looked at the data and we hit the rev limiter 7300 on the front straight and he saw 180s. I figured he was wrong at those speeds looking to the right a nano second before we had to brake. The stock gear graph shows 180s at 7300 on stock tires . Mine might be a hint taller. Do you think the Vbox data could be wrong? It said 166. I know top of forth in my car is over 180. You can hear that we hit the rev limiter the last pass. I should have videoed the speedo but I was holding the phone on my left shoulder so the safety crew would not black flag us again for filming.

ma.
You need to do for a ride with Mark Mcgowan!
He should be a pro drifter!
He does rain diving in the dry!
SIDEWAYS ALL THE TIME!
