TEXAS World Speedway

Hey guys here is a video of me at TWS this weekend. Short but sweet. Had a blast and this car is way faster than my 04 Cobra. Enjoy!

I moved this here, it is a better fit for your tracking video.

Here is the vid embedded. Looks like you had a good time on that track. At first I did not think I would enjoy the banking too much but now I love it.

What a tease, I haven't been to TWS since 2008. It is so...time to go! It appears you ran the long course. It is loads of fun with challenging braking zones and some very fast corners. I can't wait to go back this summer for some much needed track time. Thanks for sharing the vid.

I've got a bad vibration above 110 when I come off of the gas. Seems like it's in the drivetrain. It has a balanced one piece driveshaft. Anyone ever hear a noise like this? @ 2:30 and 4:30

It's always been there but it's really noticeable at this faster track.

Any chance it is contacting your DS Loops when the back end comes up (effectively extending the rear suspension)? See any marks/rub rings on the DS?

I told you that was not normal :)

Yes you did.

Just found this dyno video, something is definitely NOT right. :(

Nice lap.

That was a lot of fun, are you going to the NASA event there at the end of the month?

I would like to but I'm saving up for rims and tires. I will be at MSR Houston May 11th for a one day event and then no more track days for the Pirelli's. They are getting a little worn.

Funny that you posted the video link, because now I recognize your handle from a few other sites.

Yeah, I had an Orange 04 Cobra, so I've been ORANGE CRUSH since Dec of 2003. Started off on Fordpower and then SVTP, SCMC and now BMOL.
