    Agree with others that 1CCW is a great config. More fun and challenging to drive than any CW config including the standard 13CW. Better for racing too. Clockwise the Esses are a bore in anything over about 11lbs/hp. CCW the esses are ah, character defining.

    Sorry for the confusion, guys. This happened two Novembers ago. Snap-spun off the curb at Sunrise. Wall of champions, Brett. Brett, wall of champions. The car has since been fixed then irreparably wrecked at Willow.

    Well put, sir.

    The esses and the entry to star mazda CCW are fantastic. Definitely some of the more challenging car control (on street tires at least).

    It was my first time on 1CCW and I was on some 20 heat cycle A6's on a scorching hot track so my car was skating around quite a bit. However, I agree the entries to some of the turns are more challenging in the CCW direction. I had some trouble carrying enough speed over Phil Hill as I kept over-slowing my car even when I was consciously trying not to. Also seemed to slow down too early coming into button hook as I would find myself wishing I had more speed going into the turn most of the time. I think the turning while braking threw me off a bit. My ST2 car also bounces around a lot on that track even compared to my T1 car. It seems to prefer smoother tracks with the suspension it has.

    Sorry to hear about the contact Brett.
    Even in our T1 cars the esses going CW are easy once you get used to it. You can just go full throttle in 4th gear coming out every time. The esses at Sonoma are much more challenging and fun due to the elevation and camber changes and blind exit. Sonoma CCW would be fun to try, but I guess that never happens.

    Hey Amir,

    Thanks and good observation. Great seeing you at the track.

    We're running a smaller pulley for the MP62 on the red car and those are the highest IAT's that I've seen on my car, but it was rather "toasty" andhumid over the weekend -- that video was from a run late in the afternoon (over 95 degrees). We usually don't run at desert tracks in the summer time.
    I guess Buttonwillow doesn't cool down until ??? Having said that, Andy's car is running a stock pulley, stock motor, etc and his IATs got into the 170's as well.

    Video below from Sunday afternoon has Andy's data -- another good lap time by Andy. BTW, Andy thinks it was a better lap than his 1:59 (earlier in the morning) but track and weather conditions conspired against him .....

    And ignore the "ambient temp" on my video... the Traqmate comes up with a number that is 20-30 degrees too low. It was probably around 95F ambient for the Time Trial. The Traqmate estimated my maximum HP for the Time Trial at 205whp... significantly less than the usual 230-235whp under cooler conditions.
