Viper Video Feature

A Youtube Video that we shot in 2019 about the Viper has finally come out.

Talking about some of the flaws of the car

Comparing it to the Hellcat

The funny part is that these came out exactly a week after I sold the Viper. In total I had the viper for 2.5 years and really enjoyed my time with the car. I even used it as my daily driver for a few months and found it super practical to live with. I will definitely have to get a Gen V Viper some day.… Read the rest

Lotus Evora S IPS on track – Take Two

In my previous post about the Evora S on track I spent a lot of time complaining about the 400 treadwear tires that the car was on. I was getting a lot of tire lock under braking and the car generally did not have enough grip on the track. Luckily I was then able to replace the tires with a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on the optional forged “sport” wheels for the Evora and hit Laguna with the GGLC once more.

As you can see from the video I was able to pull a 1:48 lap without really maximizing any of the turns.… Read the rest

Back up and Running

Celebrating the fact that the Seven is up and running with an autocross video from Marina. The car still has an intermittent misfire that I am trying to iron out but it is running well so far.
