I'm a little surprised about there being a curb on the outside of a high speed turn (i would have been coming out of there at WOT and let it drift all the way wide). There was potential for a serious incident.

Yeah it was a little sketch. If you can hear my tires - I was doing a strange slider the whole way around.

Great course though other than that!

We had our regional and challenge cup all last weekend and it was definately fun and challenging. I only have the video of my first run at the regional on saturday which ended up being my fastest. I coned the next 2 runs but took off 1.5 sec. Sunday's challenge cup was extremely wet so i left the go pro at home.

That course looks nothing like the courses down here that thing was wide open! What kind of speeds were you hitting on that?

some more STS action.
I disconnected my rear sway bar at lunch, drove faster after that.
I feel i need to push the car a bit more.. not fast enough.
