Evo of Doom @ HPR open track day, fast group, late afternoon 5/27/2011
You can FF the entire outlap (to 2:30); it's just me following an Audi R8 at 5/10ths to get my tires and brakes up to temp.
First time out at the track in the Evo since 2009, and no aero. New engine, new suspension, low Boost, old tires. Driver is very rusty too.
I believe my fastest lap that day was the last one in this clip, a 1:58.56 from start/finish line to start/finish line. Should be in the mid 1:56s with better driving (no other changes)... maybe mid 1:54s with decent driving + aero and more Boost?
Slowest... Lambo... Gallardo... driver... evar. (3:20--3:50)

Evo of Doom SM class SCCA autocross run #3 Colorado Region winter event 02/18/12
Run #3 on a very cold but sunny winter day at Front Range Airport, northeast of Denver, CO, on February 18, 2012.
This is the first time I've driven my Evo since July 2011, so I'm pretty rusty, and the car's setup is far from dialed in (not like I'd ever driven the car in 40-degree conditions). But by run 3, at least all the OPR ("other people's rubber") and rocks wrapped around the tires from last season were cleaned off by the previous two runs/launches. :) And the car still managed to post the 2nd fastest run of the day, and scored 995 points (PAX) out of a possible 1000.
The car is running 285/30-18 Hoosier A6s, with Rotora 6-piston front brakes and 14" rotors to absorb all the kinetic energy. Forward motor comes from a 2.3L stroker motor with Manley internals, running about 27 psi with a CBRD BBK turbocharger on E85. The engine was built and tuned by Brian Tobia of Tobz Performance Tuning. An OS Giken twin-disc clutch puts the over 500wtq to all four wheels, and the transfer case and rear diff have been modified to help handle the tremendous load.
