    Undoubtedly a scary fast car. Wonder how the GT2 RS compares to it at almost twice the price?

    Mr. Pobst also stated: "Tremendous grip in the corners"

    "Get it running right, it's way down on power"

    That one was definitely not hitting on all 8. Probably nothing to do with it being a press car. LOL

    Rare company indeed in a street car...
    Most race drivers would feel a little vulnerable at those speeds with out race car safety, roll cage, 5 point belts, on board fire system, hans device, fire suit.

    Last month watched a brand new Camaro ZL1 run great at Big Willow all day until it backed into a hay bail.
    The heat from the bent exhaust pipe caught the interior carpet on fire and torched/totaled the inside of the car.
    If you plan to go to the track at those speeds why not have a much safer real race car for less money.
    My SCCA racer buddy asked my if he should offer the guy 15k for it as it would make a good SCCA spec race car.
    I told him not to make the offer, let the guy suffer in peace.

    I'm on my second vette now, its a 04 C5 Z06 with almost 30k miles at laguna.

    Our late 80s tube chassis IMSA race car runs low 1:30s at Laguna too.
    I'm sure Randy could help me shave off a few seconds.

    I really Like Laguna and Randy P, favorite track to drive and one of my favorite drivers.
    Here he is getting real, blaming himself.
    Rarely have I ever heard a driver admit fault.
