We've got a plan for next year!

Like I told Shahid, we literally had to take 150hp away from Mike and give it to me just so I could keep him in sight... on Hellbender! He's got that killer instinct and commitment that comes with natural ability and consistent practice.

I'll never keep up with Mike on The Dragon, and I'm OK with that. I might work on a few things with the BMW just to get it a bit more comfortable for me, maybe get it to within 90-95% of where my 370 was. But I'll never hang with Mike, and I shouldn't try. That usually leads to... events.

I keep telling myself I need to take up AutoX to continue honing the driver mod and keep my skills up, since these days my only "performance driving" happens at ZDayZ.

Thanks guys.

I was happy the car did as well as it did. She's down on power, but damn can she dance!

The STU 350Z made the run in 10:13 back in 2015. The street-class FRS took 10:18 with the Focus RS in the way for a bit, but I still don't think a fully open run would have covered the whole gap. I was holding more speed through turns and transitions but not quite enough to fully cover the straight-line advantage the STU Z had.

Be careful of the painted white lines when they don't stay on the side of the road. I guess I hit one just right that came out in the lane. Never had any issues before.

That was close!

I also had a run in with a painted line that morning, only it was on the way out to the Dragon. I took a wide arc into a right-hander and clipped the double yellow with my left rear. I lost a bit of traction and held a small drift through the corner however the car kept coming around on exit so we had to fight a bit of a "tank slapper." I should have known better and should have been keeping a tidier line!

Close don't count. Only thing that surprised me is I was right back at it. Didn't phase me a bit until I parked to eat breakfast. LOL

You're on to something with that Mountain Dew & cigarette combo.

I thought the problem started when the turn went off-camber (well...flat anyway) just before the straight.

Through some of the turn, the road was "helping" you, then the help ended before the lateral forces were "done" and the rear stepped left. Your reaction was pretty quick considering it looked like a surprise. Things could have gone a lot worse with a later reaction. You also seemed to instinctively minimize how much you "argued" with inertia while you gathered it up, that helped too.

It could have been. It is hard to tell. I am racking my brain trying to figure it out. I knew I had one chance to get the recovery right so I did minimal inputs. I am glad the stock VLSD was not in the car. I would have wagged the tail for sure like it has done many times before. Reality is I was lucky, everything went my way.
