    Default Buttonwillow #18 CCW - Request for Videos

    Does anyone have any in-car videos of this configuration?

    Here's a video from 4-5 years ago of #18CW. Obviously the wrong direction and the camera is shaky as hell, but you get the idea. I was at ~170mph (IIRC) correctly at the end of the straight coming into the star mazda turn.

    Worst config ever if your car has less than 400hp
    Do you understand?

    Unless you're doing wheel to wheel. Then things get kinda interesting racing into riverside.

    My pockets are not quite deep enough for that yet. Maybe in a few years time.

    Can't be worse than running 13CW _AGAIN_.

    Basically #1 CCW with less corners and a lot more straight.

    This #18 looks like the best Cadillac track.

    Never run this config before, Looks like I have a good chance run roughly the same lap in my Miata or the truck I use to tow...

    But Starmazda seems the most trickiest of all.

    That's why you should watch #1 CCW vids, as I suggested in the previous post.
    You should be able to find plenty of those.

    That corner CCW is one of my favorites on any track so far.

    Yeah. There were plenty of TrackHQ decals on some pretty fast cars, so there should be a few good videos and some slots on a Top 25 list that should stand for a long time because it could be a long time before they run this configuration again.

    btw: It was interesting how it was as much faster as it was longer because the times were very close to the 13 CW times. And some of the sub 400 hp cars did well. One fully tricked SCCA Civic Hatch was putting to hurt of some very big dogs.

    That Civic was actually a very nice project.Very streamlined body and engine that is no joke.I was able to stay close to Oli on the straights,but the Civic was pulling me good.
    1:58.5 from me.

    I managed a low 2:04 on Saturday, and despite being slow through the million long straights, I had a good time challenging myself to go faster through Riverside.
    I managed to get to a pretty consistent entry speed of 112-113 MPH which was definitely spooky enough for me

    Nice meeting you Moti,your work looks even more impressive in person.
    Your entry speed at Riverside looks impressive too.I managed just over 100 mph,but I was catching up on every car in front of me there.I wanted to try wider line and higher speed later in the day,but I flatspotted front right and there was a scary shudder loading it at Riverside.
