__First track day in my FR-S__

Went to Putnam Park Raceway this past Saturday. First time pushing the car on the new setup. Was so fun pulling higher HP cars and getting on their butts in corners. Car took everything I could throw at it, ran a best lap of 1:26. Here's some vids...

Fastest lap...

Had a little 'off' lol...

Mustang hunting...

Chasing an ACR Viper...

Then I had some fun with a friend that went with us, his first track day and he got pretty good towards the end. He kept wanting me to pass but I wanted to get some vid so he could check out his lines...







Here's some pics my wife took with her phone, sorry about the quality...





lol

Wow, absolutely beautiful lines. Great job man. I love to see you keeping up with the Viper and S2K on corners. Let them pull away from you in the straights, you'll catch up in the corners. The only criticism is to get on the throttle earlier in the exit of the turns. Push your car to the edge of the road during exits to get the highest speeds possible. But other than that, you are driving like a pro. I can't wait to see you get some performance increases for the straights. You'll be kicking ass soon.

Thanks! That was only my second time on a track. The S2k was a friend that went with me, his first time on the track. I had no problem passing him (did it plenty times that day), just followed him for a while for fun.

I'm on BC Racing coilovers. The app is Harry's Lap Timer Pro and it is awesome! $20 well spent!

I'm actually planning on running the 10/10ths track day on Oct 13th up at Putnam. It'd be awesome to see you out there for it! Nice driving.

I'll be in my MR2, btw.

Very cool, man! I'll probably take the FR-S out there next summer.

BTW, were you on stock brake pads and discs? If so, how did they do? It doesn't look like a particularly hard braking course...

awesome videos! loved watching you run down that viper (that is my dream car). that app you found is pretty neat as well.

looks like you are getting good seat time. the 2 tracks i have around me that i'm trying to get to are Virginia International Raceway and Carolina Motorsports Park. Both offer beginner classes with four 30 minute on track driving sessions with classroom instruction in between.

I'd love to but don't think I could pull it off, going on vacation in Oct. and need some cash for that. Have fun out there!

Stock pads, braided brake lines and ATE super blue fluid. Probly could have used a bleed towards the end but held up good.

That's the Harry's Lap Timer Pro app on my iphone, works awesome! Here's some data from the lap timer, this is my fastest lap. I can look at every lap of the day like this and also on a spreadsheet.
