That is sick.

What rpm you shift at? You must have short gears to grab 4th at ~120kms

Drive-train wise everything is stock. I short shifted at one or two places just because I run out of revs in third in the middle of some corners. Other than that I take it to the red line.
I hit the rev limiter a couple of times in previous sessions, so I started short shifting... didn't want to tow my baby home with a busted rocker arm.

you don't wanna know. but for a weekend like that count on $1500.

btw, it was the last session of the weekend, so i upshifted earlier, just to take it easy on the car.

crap man, i could of sworn this was a videogame clip. What did you use to capture the video, kph, position relative to the track, etc? At first i thought you were just messing with us.

I have no idea, there was an in-car video service at the track. They hook-up two bullet cameras anywhere you want and plug their equipment in the cig. lighter. Unfortunatly the sound got ****ed. I have a DVD of my session from them, it looks awesome! 100 times better than what you see in the link.

that video in the link was bloody awesome (quality and all the fanciness), so i can only imagine what the DVD looks like.
I bet they use some kind of GPS based system to track your position on the track and kmh. I saw they even had tachometer on the ariel videos (on the same website), i guess an inductive pickup to a sparkplug wire would give this, so no interface to ecu is necessary really.

track looks like fun, i hear people go through tires very fast on it (especially the front left tire).

so did you have J-stock on it?

DVD is unbelievable! Just no ****ing sound
Yes, they do use a GPS, I remember that much. You can't get RPM on OBD-I cars, but the guy said that they were working on it.

It not bad on the tires, the surface is VERY smoooooth and there is grip pretty much everywhere.

Yes, it was the first time ever, I drove the car on new suspension, I didn't even take a test drive on the street, just picked it up from Engineered Automotive on Thusday and trailered it straight to Calabogie.
Friday was somewhat of a test day, for me and the car. It took all of Friday for me to memorize the track. I will give you a full suspension report after I drive familiar Mosport.
But it felt very good. For the first couple of sessions I had to remind myself that I had a new suspension, I am used to body roll and there just wasn't any

Gleb, that video is awesome! I'm surprised the quality is so good. Audio would've definitely been the icing on the cake, though.
