Little update, not much has gone on these past couple events other than just driving and enjoying the car.
First good event to get a nice comparison against the other cars in the class(ND Miata, NC Miatas, S2000's). Dry and a little cool that day, course had a decent mix of fast and tight elements. Was able to take 3rd place out of 27 in the class. ND Miata that has been developed by Karcepts, a top level driver and helped a bit with this car, took first and NC Miata's surrounded me in 2nd and 4th. S2k's were cone dirty otherwise their raw times would have bumped me down the list.
Following event was a complete wash, literally. So it rained just before our heat ran. I've autox'd this car in the rain before, but, that was on a different lot. It did pretty well in the rain, I could handle the car just fine there. BUT THIS lot, when it gets wet, turns into a nice oily mess. It's almost like driving on ice. I knew this would be a handful, and it was. I spun on my first 3 out of 4 runs leaving me last run to tone things way down and just get in a decent time. Ended up with a clean 4th run which put me in a decent 6th out of 21 in class.
This past weekend's event went well. It's rained for the past couple of weeks and it was cloudy all day Saturday. Morning was pretty much a wash but the course dried up enough by the afternoon to get in a few decent runs with just a couple spots on course that were oily slick. I took fastest time of the day at the BMW club event by a good margin but that margin likely would have been narrowed had the NC STR Miata hot shoe had gotten a chance at a similar dry course that I got.
ALSO, at this event, the highlight of my day. This man came up to me and started talking about the nsx. Said he had a friend who used to have an nsx and mentioned his friend committed suicide and seeing this car brought back some memories. Asked for a ride along and of course I said yes. He had a hell of a time as you can see in the video haha. After the run he said he has cancer and he had such a rush and felt great after the run. So glad I'm able to share the experience of this car with others. Crank up the volume if you want to hear his comments throughout the run lol
Sorry for the fast frame rate. Just got this new gopro and didn't realize what it was set on.
**profanity in video lol**
I STILL haven't had a chance to play with the front bar settings. I hope to do so at one of the next events. Just a lot going on lately with purchasing a home and work commitments that I've just enjoyed driving the car rather than tinkering with it lately.
