3 14 11 MSR cresson 1.7 CCW in LOTUS EXIGE S w/ RA1, mock start and chasing an ADR
fun, mock start, chased an ADR for most of the session. i think he was playing with me because these cars should be way faster. kept improving lap by lap, best lap time this session and for the weekend was 124.8 This was my first time at this track, i think that a high 22 / low 23 is possible.
PST Viper Cup Testing at MSR - Fast Lap 1:13.9
Pre-Season Viper Cup Testing at MSR Cresson. Dave Fiorelli is getting a handle on the ACR-X. The car is as delivered from Dodge with exception for an alignment and setup. We have some work to do before the first race but this is an excellent start! Look for more videos from the Viper Cup race series begining in May.

VW R32 Motorsport Ranch Cresson 1.7 CCW August 2010
Motorsport Ranch Cresson, TX
Volkswagen MKIV R32
235/40/18 Dunlop Star Specs
AST 4100 Coilovers (first event on this suspension)
H&R 21 mm Rear Swaybar
Dropped around 2 secs from previous outing with the stock suspension. Alignment still needs some work because of lack of rear camber adjustment. I expect to see some lower lap times after the suspension gets sorted out.
Even with added camber I'm still having problems rolling over the tires onto the sidewall in some of the left-handers.
MSR Cresson 3.1 in Lotus Exige in the rain
This should give you a rough idea of the wet line at MSR Cresson. Pay particular attention in the S-curves to stay out of the slippery stuff lest you get bogged down and spend an eternity escaping.
According to the data analysis, I was on track for a 3m39.5s lap until I pirouetted just before the start/finish line. That's what happens when you squeeze the throttle a fraction of a second early in the wet on MSR Cresson. Don't give any gas until your wheels are completely straight.
A few laps at MSR Houston CCW in a Lotus Exige
2007 Lotus Exige S on Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec tires.
This is a segment of video from my weekend with The Driver's Edge at Motor Sport Ranch Houston. I've been in the blue group (intermediate) for the past two weekends, and someone decided that this weekend they would trust me and let me drive solo every other session.
This video is from my third session of the second day. I was consistently driving near the 2 minute mark for almost all my laps with low/no traffic, which was an improvement of about 7 seconds over my best lap time from my first day. What a difference thinking and pondering over a day's worth of instruction can make, eh?
I'm posting this not because I'm doing anything spectacular on track, but because there just aren't many high-quality videos of folks driving MSR Houston in this direction, and I want folks to know what to expect counter-clockwise.
Please do not emulate my late braking, missed shifts, dislike of 2nd gear, overblipping, nose-picking, or anything else that is less than ideal. Especially not the things you see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IT8y5olhPR4&hd=1
k thx bye!
