    BTW...the suction cup mount works great on the interior of our V's sunroof when mounted upside-down.....

    If you mount it all the way back on the sunroof on passenger side and angle the camera a little bit towards the driver's side.....you get a GREAT view of the gauges, steering wheel and the entire winshield......

    looked like some good fun. Was it just me or are you not thresh hold braking?

    Once I and the Vette cleared those cars, we were able to open it up. None of those laps were clean. There was a couple points I was able to hit my lines and brake late. The Hog Pen, for instance. Unfortunately, that was the last session of the day and the batteries finally died halfway through the session.

    I think I was hitting 142-143. I have 275/35 18 tires which is off a bit so speedo is inaccurate...

    Damn! Nice.....how high in revs were you in 5th.....and how much more did you fell you had in the pedal?

    BTW.......do you have a speed limiter....or did you tune it out? I know mine kicks in at 149....arghhhh....but probably a blessing in disguise.

    Sorry, mate, but no limiter in the V2. I do believe 191mph is drag limited. 5th gear pulls like a mutha. I was deep into 5th by the end of the straight...

    Re: New Vid w/ my Go Pro (my first attempt)

    They've been dominating the LeMons racing series. And they had quite the pedigree back in the early-mid 90s. But the reason for all the SHOs was that this track day was part of the National Taurus SHO Owners Convention.

    Dems is good people. So good I still go to the Conventions every year even though I've been without my '92 SHO for almost 8 years now...

    220hp 3.0 DOHC Yamaha headed motor. About 3100-3300lbs. And while 220hp was good, it wasn't the highest hp around. BUT, with the gearing and a flat torque curve once into the secondaries, it could pull on 300hp cars up high. And a 7000rpm redline. In '89? That was insane...
