^ That shot is amazing!
Super cool the photographer caught the rotors in the daylight.

You can see it poking through here as well!

Great balls of fire


For anyone wondering, the brake rotor GoPro lasted 12 mins before it shut down from thermals :crackup: :crackup: :crackup:

Not about the GoPro, but are you using the shift lights?
Nada. Since I have a battery kill switch in the car, it resets the damn shift lights every time I turn it off. So not only would I need to turn it back on every time, I'd need to reset what RPM I want them to come on at. I just gave up and left it off.

Now I do it by ear....works pretty good. I did bounce off the rev limiter quite a few times the first weekend back with the new motor because it revved so smooth - I had to re-calibrate myself. Ha

One of the reasons I always tell others to check your tires with a pyrometer. Different tires, suspension parts (like bushings), tracks, temps, driving skill, etc. will all affect how much camber you need to run. I'm fairly aggressive on rear camber at -2.1 and I still read high on the outside shoulders when running slicks. Here you can see why - the grip is enough that it really rolls over

Full picture - really heavy load under power going into T3 at COTA
