Many thanks to Geoff for coming out to play and volunteer, and I hope you got home OK today....possibly with the help of a new battery
@sca037 yeah I ended up stopping at a parts store, grabbing a new battery and just coding it in when I got back home. It was all jacked up!

This weekend was a riot....needless to say I need a vacation afterwards. My body is not happy! lol

Edit:

Here's a video of one of the sessions. @sca037 that car is 18s in it for sure. After watching the footage, I'm barely pushing it, not getting on throttle soon enough, braking too much, etc. Can't wait for the next one!! It's going to be fast!

Geoff,

Considering that we're ALL learning the new braking/turn-in points around the freshly-resurfaced track, how much better did it feel with the concrete in the corners GONE?
Also, you have the strong and proud 9K rev limit...so do you really need to run 4th on the back straight, or in other words with a 66mph run from Big Bend (T5) could you just briefly ride the rev limiter before braking into Turn 6 (shifting takes time)?

You rock, my good man ;^D
