Labor Day Win at Summit Point video

I cam in second for the Saturday race and first for the Sunday race. The RX7 is slowly turning into a EP car. I drop my lap times by 2 seconds this race, starting to like the RX7, need to work on the setup a little more and I think I can drop another 2 seconds. Here is the video of the Sunday race.

It looks like you are turning in a little early at 10, 3 and 8. You could carry a little more speed down the chute and stay full left into 5, it's a throwaway. What time did you get down to? It looked like a 1:34 or 5 from the video. Overall, you looked consistent and that's a plus. Good luck!

The car still has a lot left, I ran 1:31:2 and most of the laps were in the 31 and 32 times. The car is still setup for the ITA.

Consistency is the key which you have and that is great! You can definitely pick up more speed if you don't turn in too early as Don49 mentioned. I used to do the same and it's amazing how much time you gain doing so! Learn the car and then start changing things on it, that is key!

Looking forward to seeing some more videos!
