Howdy, I figured I'd post a couple vids of my Firehawk in action. I'm relatively new to track driving as this is only my second year doing road course stuff. I'm not a total newbie though as I've done some drag racing and autox in the past. Does Gran Turismo count as seat time? just kidding...

Pocono North/South course (typical TNiA layout) - 1:45.56 best so far

NJMP Thunderbolt - 1:36.75 best so far, although I feel I could definitely shave more time off at an event with less traffic

NJMP Lightning - 1:16.56 best so far, hanging with a SS 1LE and a C7
and 1:18.44 from last month https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQhoC0jkFtE

I'm working on getting a tow rig so I can make it to farther tracks next year. Summit Point, Glen, Pitt, etc.

95 Firehawk
Stock SLP Bilsteins
UMI/BMR springs f/r
Hellwig 35mm front sway
Founders LCAs, Founders panhard, UMI torque arm
GW front upper A-arms
Kenny Brown subframe connectors
CTSV1 brakes and no ABS
Headers, a glasspack, and 1.7 roller rockers are the only power mods
18x10.5 C5z wheels with 315 Falken RT615k+ tires

I drove 5hr west to Pitt Race for a 2 day HPDE over the weekend. The weather was horrible, but I did manage to get 1 okay session where it was mostly dry. This was my first time here and the best was a 2:03.39. I know I'm leaving a ton on the table in the braking zones, but I really need a full dry day to figure them out as I have no ABS. The curbs were also super slick so I was avoiding them altogether.

Got into a tussle with an e90 M3. He had RE71RS tires, Fortune 510 coilovers, catless exhaust, brakes, etc. and it was also his first time at Pitt.
