I will post up another video later this week of the BOSS stomping a few vettes and various other cars.
I was about 1.3 seconds off the pace I was shooting for, however I was able to pass pretty much every car in my group, save for a gutted/caged/race-spec 1st Gen Viper.

Temperature was 105* ambient and the car didn't have a single overheating issue or warning. I am running the bar-type grille and stock coolant w/ 3 bottles of water wetter.

I did have a few issues with other cars braking in spots you shouldn't be braking in and nearly causing me to rearend them, had a GT3 on R888s battle it out with me then blow his radiator right in front of me after I pointed him by, and also found a screw in one of my race tires...all that and more later this week!
 
Yea he took a "different" line LOL. Love seeing the bowties get beat down, even if it's a bunch of C5s and verts ;D

Was this a DE event with open passing or TT?
 
You guys in AZ sure like to go offroad a lot! ;)

In NASA-SE they call it an agricultural excursion because of the greenery. What do they call it out there? A desert safari? ;)

DE w/ open passing, although if you don't know who you're running with, there are only a couple of "safe" spots to pull a pass off.


Out here they call an off track excursion "sandblasting" :)

At MPH it's mowing the alfalfa, especially with the LS splitter ;D

Yeah, I'm so glad that he mowed it before we got there. I would still be picking alfalfa out of the car after my little spin during the autocross. :-[
How did I miss that! ??? I'll bet it was first thing in the morning on that cold track, about the time I plowed the cone sliding through my first braking zone of the autocross ;D
