    Was that an optical illusion, or was the windshield flexing like crazy at the higher speeds and in the bumps?

    Not an optical illusion, it was flexing a lot! We are cutting it down this week to about the level of the mirror. It is Lexan, so it won't break but it was very distracting.

    Thumbs up

    Great video Mark! Nice drive, you and your car appear very comfertable at speed. Seeing the topless video makes me think I'm missing some really exciting speed sensations with my 911 coupe.
    Needed a little gust to quickly clear those dust clouds!
    That is a steep bank, in comparision do you know how steep is the Fontana bank?
    Your car looked like a lot of fun to race. It sounded like you were happy, over the engine revs I think I could hear you or you two singing?

    Mike G.,

    CA. Speedway is 14 degrees and Daytona is a little more than twice at 31!!!

    You are definitely looking at the tops of the cars as they go around Daytona.

    Cheers,
