couldn't buy a break in traffic
It was pretty terrible. I think there were a fair amount of people out there that just got their comp license the day before. So they were a bit nervous. But that FCY timing definitely didn't help AT ALL lol

Nice driving! It had to be hard to be that conservative / safe in traffic with a car that capable. Hopefully mr. deep pockets owner/driver can do the car justice.

Those shifts sound really harsh but it doesn't seem to upset the car at all. Whats the expected life span on those dog rings?

In my car with making more than the rated power/tq, I've gotten 3 years since our last service and everything seems to be good. We get all of the internals REM polished and the tune is the really important thing. It definitely sounds harsher than what it actually is. I feel it as the driver but it's been tuned by the same person we've used to tune my paddle tuning.

Here's a link from this past weekend at VIR. This was the first race weekend with the car and the customer. The very last lap was a 1:54.2 lap time

That looked almost boring, your guy is so smooth. I think it's time to suggest he install a headlight flasher relay :)
