The first good bump on the first video was nuts! Lol You have that 5.hoe sounding good too! I generally don't like the sound of them. I am pro coyote, but not pro sound for the coyotes. Lol As for the driving, I can't comment as you are further along than me.
Another event, another awesome weekend of time trials with SCCA at Gingerman Raceway.
Improved from my PB of 1:43.9 last year, down to 1:43.1 this year. Saturday was a great day of dry track, Sunday was a great wet day of remembering how to drive in the wet. 2:02.3 wet lap time, good enough for second-fastest time in that particular session.
The car ran great, the new spring and shock settings allowed the car to feel much more buttoned-down (no more lifting wheels through T9!) and allowed me to more-confidently place the car at-speed.
Here's a couple pictures:

In addition, some video footage:
Car came home in one piece, just have a few tweaks to do and check fluids, then it's ready for the next event in early August. Going to try some lightly-used Pirelli DH slicks for the next event, now that I have a bit more seat time in the car on various 200TW tires.
The laps above (and some slightly faster laps not on video) were good enough to get a 3rd-in-class finish overall in the event, very happy with how the car feels so far.
That Vette and I were extremely well-matched throughout the weekend. He was running mid-1:43's (1:43.4, I believe), my best was 1:43.1. Then in the wet, his best was 2:02.8 while I managed a 2:02.4. Though he was probably cruising around with a/c and could actually hear himself think...I like seeing mustangs catch vettes. I am sure they don't expect that new edge to be that fast. Lol
I have a brand new set of Trackspec Motorsports hood louvers for the Cobra hood if you're interested. I bought them for mine but ended up making my own instead.Working on a few items to aid in cooling:
-Found a decent deal on a DSG Terminator Cobra hood, feel better about this route as compared to cutting up the car's existing hood. This will hopefully get some of the hot air out of the engine bay.
