It's a fairly inexpensive, Amazon suction cup mount attached to the windshield, to the right of the mirror. I see if there is a brand name when I get home tonight.

What? How in the hell did you get the frame to fix on the horizon? It looks like it's attached to a gimbal stabilizer. Amazing.

Entertaining read. Great to see what you did/doing with a "totaled" car.

Keep at it!

I see there is an upcoming article in Grassroots Motorsports Magazine about buying FR-S and BRZs from Coparts and turning them into track cars. When I saw that I thought of you and Dave. Are you guys involved in the article at all? I wondered because both the magazine and you two are located in Florida, although opposite sides of the state.

Although I know the guys over at Grassroots Motorsports, I have not spoken with them at all regarding the upcoming article.

Just got back from Road Atlanta on Sunday and Barber Motorsports Park on Monday. It was my 2nd visit to Road Atlanta, super fun visit and set a new personal best there of 1:47:69 even with the chilly temperatures and cold RE-71R's. It was my 1st visit to Barber Motorsports Park...what an amazing facility and track. It was freshly repaved over the summer and had tons of grip, being a newbie I still have a lot to learn to pick up more speed there but still turned a first session best of 1:47:72 and improved to a 1:46:91 by the end of the day, all super consistent.

Will post pics and videos soon!

You picked a great time to visit Barber with it being freshly paved. It was an awesome track before, and is now that much better with the fresh blacktop.

Loved the 12-14 section floating over the hill @13!

I love the point-bys and then flying away from you.
