NER @ Loudon

Another co-drive with Brian, only this time at NER! With Serenity still under the knife at Flatout Motorsports getting the new intake, followed by going to Wankel Works for the new transmission and clutch/flywheel kit, I asked Brian if I could drive his C Street RX-8 again.

With the alignment problem now fixed, (frozen alignment bolts last time I co-drove with him) I was hoping I could do even better in the car. Unfortunately I was dealing with a ton of understeer, as the car just wanted to push everywhere. The best I could manage was to hit the brakes before a turn to load up the front and get the rear to rotate, but even that only worked so much.

Never the less, I still had a great time and got to see some friends that were running the track day. Thanks again to Brian for letting me drive his RX-8 again! I finished 2nd in DSP for the day with a '30.951 clean. The rest of the results are on NER's website. Below is a video of my fastest run of the day.
