    Thanks! VIR is a beautiful place and a fun track; technical but great for horsepower cars too. I'd love to see some video from the Viper if you go!!! Let me know if you have a youtube channel where I can check out vids if you have them; it's fun to watch track driving!

    Nicely done Doug! Good thing you backed out long before the esses. That Rick Crawford engine can build up quite a head of steam if you stayed in it much longer, and that second set gets many cars awfully upset.

    Many folks focus too much on engines, drivetrain, etc. for road courses. To really go fast you need great brakes that inspire confidence!

    I was hoping OLOA was going back to VIR this year to run on the re-pave, but no. It's good to hear that the re-pave has turned out well. The new track at the National Corvette Museum will be the closest we get.

    Thanks Carl! Your controller is doing a great job for me! The climbing esses are one of my favorite parts of the track; I was able to go through them at around 110 this time out and hope to increase that again in November! Sad you guys won't be running VIR this time.
