    It looks like it was produced and edited by Michael Bay. I really want to like this video but there are just too many camera transitions. Once I start getting interested it cuts to some stupid angle: the driver's eyes, the front wheel, some vague out of focus chase cam. I think there might have been some good driving in there somewhere.

    Sheeyut!

    Thanks for sharing. With all due deference to Snowboard, I really enjoyed the production quality on this video.

    I especially liked the sequence at the end - both the very smooth hand-over-hand countersteering at 140 mph(ish) and his comment about not looking at where you are going (but instead looking at where you need to go) when you get out of shape.

    I guess I must be easier to please some of the Forum's more experienced track rats who sprinkle brake dust on their Wheaties every morning. .

    No offense intended to anyone and I do appreciate the video being posted for our benefit.

    I don't sprinkle brake dust on any of my food. Brakes are too expensive.

    Having seen your recent video, you are definitely not a bashful braker.

    I embellish. OEM Toyota brake pads aren't THAT expensive.
