Have you played with that sequence before to see how the top speed at the end of the straight is affected? Would you drive that section different in a lower powered car?

Great observation Mr.Towery.. I had purchased a fancy new AIM Solo 2 lap datalogger for that weekend but it came in a few days short and I was not able to overlay any lap data. We have a race there in December and I hope to have a Data overload after the fact.

Here are some pictures as promised.

You would think that would be a universal thought but a surprising number of nice cars get very offended by a beat up Volvo wagon on their tail and refuse to give a point by.

I'm sure you know that though.
