good driving. It's hard to tell from these vids, but something you might keep in mind is that if you don't feel like you have to use the full width of the track, then you aren't carrying as much speed as you could be.

Thanks!! the only thing i have done to the interior is remove the back seat. I bought a corbeau FX1 pro seat but havnt installed it yet. i do have a braille battery and a HFC installed which saves a little weight at the front. i should really get the car weighed to see where I'am at.

Yes! You are correct. My instructor in the afternoon actually said something similar with regards to that turn (entering the bridge strait).
