gnat, if it's any consolation, I took an experienced instructor out with me yesterday and he emailed me this:

"That was a fun ride - thanks for that. Like I said - I really don't think I scare easily in a car...but the way you take T3, it's nuts"

He put together a highlight reel. Including an oopsie that I can't really explain.

Glad to see I'm not the only one you try to kill on that corner. From now on if I ride with you, I'm requiring you to pit every lap :lol:



That video makes me miss that T4-T5-T6 combo. That one really showed off what her car can really do. Especially going back into the class room and listen to everyone else complain about how hard it was for them :lol:

Hey Schnelly, I just came up with a great idea for next month's give away. Right seat time in DT's Miata.

Just make sure that you include small print for "Any 'in flight' or 'off roading' time is a bonus and not a valid liability claim" :lol:

gnat, didn't you notice the title to that video? DT's apparently got an alias. Sounds like time for a username change.

You can tell your passenger "enjoyed" the ride because numerous times his voice turned into to one of a little girl and he subconsciously clasped his hands into prayer position repeatedly! That was not excitement, that was fear. Awesome job! Being a rider can be much worse that being the driver...
