Cool. Your back safe from Super Chevy. The next video to go up is a lap or two around the road course.

A few minutes with Pumpkin on the road course at the Pfadt Track Attack C5F II. What a hoot and all the BMR stuff paid divadends that day. Like being on rails.

You would have had a blast. Maybe next time. I will be posting another road course video set to music soon.

I believe it would have been easy for you to roll on by that yellow car, though I have no idea what the rules were for the event, and I sure wouldn't have wanted to surprise someone and make contact...

Those suspension upgrades are amazing... I was looking at the horizon in relation to the camera view and there appears to be almost no body roll... Cool video... And I wish we could make a run up, and then back down Dantes peak with no traffic worries...

I got stuck behind the Chic in the yellow maro a few times. I was going to go around on the right and run her down to hair pin, just to see how brave she really was. But passing on the left was a no no that's why I backed out. JP said he would ride with me on the pass, but we would have been in trouble for passing on the left. She really slowed me down in the corners. I had a few words with her about it, but it would seem she didn't want to get passed by a guy. I have more video's with a clear track that I will post later once they are edited.

Yeah your right no body roll, it like it's on rails. Very happy with the BMR suspension up-grades. Next winter coilovers to take it to the next level.

Very cool video from Pumpkin's point of view.
