    Felt like the whole track was sprayed with VHT. Could not break loose or engage ABS no matter what. Its as fast as your balls can handle. A cage and upgraded wheels studs, bearings, axles is almost a must to go all out

    So awesome guys. I can't wait to try that track again with a "real" car.

    When Chris and I drove it we had 108 whp... and we were STILL hitting 120mph on the back straight!!!

    Well here it is guys. This vid is pretty special. Not the fastest session but it was our second lapping session at the Glen. We all felt we knew the track enough by then, to go one after the other, just for fun. The vid starts in the pits and finishes in the pits, cause even the pits, is something to see. The main garage is almost half a kilometre long.


    I’ll say it agin, this track is insane. Most corners are blind. Most Apex are blind, even some barking zones are blind. The speeds are incredible. After turn one, your on a bank track at full throttle, you hit the bottom of the hill, apex and go up still full throttle in the ‘S’ all the way at the end of the straight going uphill before the chicane. My top speed at the end of the straight was 200km/h (130 mph). That’s all my car could manage going up that hill on 5th gear and by the time I hit the chicane I was well above 6,000 RPM.


    I’ve edited this vid in many different ways for you to enjoy the track. Some laps, I use only the bumper cam to really show the speeds. Another lap I use only the inside camera to show how bumpy it is. Some laps I use both. I’ve never been to a track before were my hands are tired from holding on to the steering for dear life.


    Before Shawn’s video of his race, I had never even heard of that track. But after I saw it, I made it my number 1, next new track to try. Once there, I didn’t know it at all. I didn’t watch any vids before to study it or played video games to familiarize myself with it. Everything was brand new for me. I have to say that its a pretty easy track to learn. Its very intuitive. I did my first laps in fourth gear mostly, following other cars to learn the line, then I started to learn where and when to shift and in what gear. After maybe 4 laps I started to recognize where I was on the track and by the end of the first session I was pretty comfortable with it.


    This is where this vid begins. Our second lapping session. Enjoy.

    Good work Mario! Man, why does it always look so slow on camera eah? Showing vid off to people and it looks so slow and boring. When I watch it on my PS3 I go x 1.5 fast forward and it looks like what we would see on race cars lol

    Vent the axle boots with a little snip of a WD40 straw on the inside of the axle boot on the shaft. Works great on our VW raceka.

    The GT guys qualified in the 1:54, 1:55s.. lolz. I like how tight they take the corners after the chicane.

    porsche GT3 race was in the 1:55s to 2:01s
