I didn't see them in Mike's video.

Ha Ha... there you go. You're actually right it's hard to see in the video. The breaking points were actually clearly marked like Expunge said. Here's another video of BaylorCamaro and I running with a Lambo. The driver thought he was fast enough to stay in front of us but we informed him differently later.

COOOOOOL Video! Great camera location, I'm going to try that spot next time Pumpkin is out on road course. Way better steering wheel hand location this time around, nice work.

Very cool! Jealous. I can't wait to get turned loose at full speed on the Corvette Museum Track. Just taking it at pacecar led speeds was fun.

Yes, very lucky and they are building a new one with some crazy elevation changes 40 miles from me.

Big time rookie here but getting better. Takes a lot of seat time and some instruction. Best thing now is I really know the limits of my car no matter where I'm at. Zero heat soak this time and running full power this time was unbelievably.

Now I'm jealous. Quite sure you'll get your full speed chance someday.

It's a PASS!!!

My tuner Matt @ FSP did a great job even though he's from FL. No issues. The inspectors never visually look for cats, as they are more worried about windshield wipers and blinkers than anything else.

Now with the new rules that go into affect tomorrow I can register my car when it comes due in April.
