In car. Note the high level of abject terror/caution during the first couple of corners. Note the guys off in the grass..... All of those 1000 pound heavier 996's and Cayman's with ABS and a dive bomb menatality called for lot's of caution. I passed them all anyway, later in the race when they were not hunting me in a pack. My braking sucks, way to early and cautious.

I hate how U tube down converts a crystal clear HD video.

Epic video, thanks for sharing. The car sounds awesome. While I can see what you're saying about leaving a few tenths here and there, I thought you looked good. It's a highly valuable vintage car, for cripes' sake!

Also, for perspective, Scott's fast lap bests the IMSA Continental Challenge GS cars from last season (Cayman, MX5, 328i).

Scott, you might try Vimeo. A lot of my buddies use it and it seems to be much kinder to your hi-res video.

Thanks for sharing.
991 GT3 RS does 2:20.53 and you did 2:23:24, pretty good
Too bad you're not running the iron lump tough.

Honestly, I think with a Darren Law or Price Cobb in the car, it would do 17's or 18's.

I was shifting at 7500 rpm, when the car makes peak power at 7900 rpm, so I was deliberately leaving power on the table in exchange for long life, which was the plan. I was also over breaking, and choosing not to go under people even when there was room. If you watch early, the guy in the gold 911 had no idea I was next to him in 17, and he almost came all the way down into me.

I also need to rebuild the steering rack, it has some play in it that gave me variable toe, which was interesting.

I have enough bits and pieces to actually build a couple of race 2L iron motors, but I think I'll let the next owner do that.

The though of a nice, modern, 4 valve direct injected turbo, say from a macan....... That would be kind of in the spirit, and it would certainly make HP and live.

Its clear you didn't race them, often it looked like you could have been WOT but you were just cruising. You could beat the lap record surely.

Very cool, nice work. You don't look that lazy behind the wheel to me, Scott...
