    ^ Haha the last two times I went to WSIR (both open test days), I haven't come across a single car on track. It's been quite the experience.

    Thanks though. No secret really, just watched a lot of video (my own, Jack's, and others), drive the track like a true momentum car, and try to be smooth while being on throttle as much as possible. I spent a day there in a 100 hp Spec RX-7 (first gen), so I think that helped out a lot.

    Great video. Incredibly fast through 9.

    I've got to get back out there.

    Your speeds were really good, so im surprised your lap time wasnt faster.

    I think with the right weather we are in the low 1:25s at WSIR.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    But your min speeds were pretty good, and iirc faster than Jacks min speeds in some spots, like T9, i think yours was 100. On top of that you hit like 140 on the front and back straight. From what ive seen i thought that should have resulted in a faster lap. Do you think your mph is showing higher than it is?

    I would guess that GPS-generated speed is probably less reliable than we all imagine -- but not by a lot. He's MUCH faster than me at several points on the track, but slower at the slow points in 2, 3, 4 and 5.

    It's definitely a very different lap than mine, but with a similar lap time. Seems like if I can hold more speed in 2 than him, I ought to be able to do the same thing in 9. (But of course, that might kill me.)

    In any case, it's a very impressive lap.

    I imagine that is due to weight differences between the cars.

    Absolutely. I'm 500 pounds lighter.

    Comparing the two videos, the only fault I can find is that I'm too damn slow through 9.

    It should be pretty accurate. The GPS lap time and the Mylap lap time were within .02 sec of each other.

    Thanks Jack. I did watch your Guide to Willow the night before. Couldn't have done it without it.

    I meant the indicated speed on the overlay, not the lap time itself. The lap time itself seems like it would be an easier calculation than speed. But then, you're also getting RPM so it might well be that the box is reconciling those two streams of data, which should be very accurate.

    Ha! I'll take credit for just about anything -- but it takes a lot more than my guide to run a 1:27 at Willow.
