Placed order in Northern VA

Hey everyone, I just placed an order for a SW 1SS 1LE with Recaros and NPP. It's mainly going to be for the track. Really looking forward to it since I'm coming from a very quick but temperamental EVO X. I look forward to talking with you all...

Nice choice of options! You won't believe how capable these 1LEs are on the track. Bone stock it is damned fast. Congrats.

Thanks guys. I definitely will post up some videos of some laps. When I did my research for a new track car, even with the weight, this is one of the most capable cars out there, price or no price. I'm surprised it flies under the radar as much as it does with motor journalists. I can't tell you how much more relaxed I am with this plan as opposed to my modified Evo, crossing my fingers before every run session.

Country in Warrenton. I'm out in the Vint Hill/Gainesville area so it's the closest one. Went to several dealerships but got the best deal at Country as well.

I'm surprised you got a deal at Country. I lived in Warrenton for 10 years, and saw lots of cars I liked at the dealer, but they were always overpriced. Enjoy the new ride!

I agree, never thought much of them as the used cars always seemed to be a bit high. My guy was to the point. Offered me a good price and a very good trade on my Evo which I did NOT want to go through the hassle of selling privately. I was impressed and felt great about the whole deal.

Do you come to Summit Point? If so, we may have met. I was the guy who gave the morning lectures at FATT, and now manage the motorsports program at the track. I'm the guy who give Vette guys a hard time in the classroom... They're so easy to pick on!

Yes I've been to Summit Point many times, however that was in the Evo. Most were through Trackdaze.

I see you have a Boss. My dad just picked up a 2013 in school bus yellow. I love it. I got the Camaro so we could relive the old days.

So we can expect to see VIR laps from you ?

I love the Bosses too, in fact I was going to buy one before I read up on the 1LE. You are going to surprise your dad at how fast your machine is on the track. Tell him he had better start modding if he wants to keep up

Most definitely. I go at least three times a year to VIR and try to make sure at least one of those is in the grand configuration that the Lightning Lap is run on. With my Evo I was down to a 2:13 lap time on the FULL course so that's what I'll be using as my benchmark.

I actually placed an order for the boss before they came out. A Competition Orange one. However the dealer was stringing me along with his inability to get one in. I canceled and bought the Mitsu. The engine on my dad's sounds so good amd is really revvy. However, he got the color I would have bought. Plus, when I saw the 2014 1LE and how quick it was...that was it. I was actually contemplating a Vette Grand Sport as well but there are Vettes EVERYWHERE at track days. For good reasons, though.
I wanted something a littl bit different.

The interesting thing would be to see you and your dad both do a session in each car and compare times and feedback. Too bad Track Daze are done at SP for this year. Maybe we could convince Eric to rent the track for testing. I might make him a deal on price if I was allowed to participate...

Oh no! I didn't know this...I'll have to do it through another group because I love that track.

I'll second the idea of you guys swapping cars at the track and writing up a full comparison! That would be a fun read.

He'd certainly be up for it. He's very generous with letting me drive his cars. I've driven it around the area conservatively but I'd definitely like to wring it's neck in anger.

Wring it's neck in anger, lol! Nothing like a little healthy competition between father and son. My best times at the track have been chasing my friend Martin in his GT3 around the track. We are pretty evenly matched but the mighty Bow Tie has scored the win over his fine German machine, both times at Buttonwillow Raceway
