anyone with data log know what their top speed was? just curious.
my car should bounce the limiter at about 68mph in 2nd and I TRIED to hit it.. for once... but couldn't!

by the middle of RG2 there was enough gravel/sand/plant matter off-line that it was like ice out there... if you didn't take a very tight line on some of the turns you were just screwed.


Crap, nevermind. I thought I was recording but somehow have
no data. I was at my very top of second, so I was certainly
over 70 coming back after the far-end turn-around.

Definitely a great course layout! I could have gotten into 3rd twice, but on my final run hit the limiter in 2nd for a good 2 seconds on the front section, so not sure if holding it saved time.

Anyways, had a blast, and other than the small gate and timing problems, was really fantastic!

I was into 3rd gear easy. Heck, I was redlining in 2nd on that stretch right after the first uturn after the start.

I know that the BSP Evo guys were using 3rd gear, and looking at Josh's times, I'm sure he was somewhere in the 70s. 2nd gear tops out at ~67mph with the Evo 5spd.

I hit the limiter heading out for a second, and after the bowl, at the first left kink before it goes to the right. I rode that limiter for quite a while.

Top of 2nd is 60mph for my car currently.

I enjoy most Candlestick courses but that one was extra fun I thought. A couple of the whumps were a bit much, mainly the ones on the first long straightaway. When you have multiple camber and elevation changes in one corner or one chicane it makes things really fun I think! The turn at the far end of the course was pretty quick if you trusted the grip in the dip and kept the rear end underneath the car as you crested the rise on exit. I dig that kind of stuff. Smile The switchbacks heading toward the finish were a little different than the typical sweeper or slalom elements we usually see and I for one enjoyed them. It helped that I was driving a really well balanced car that you could turn with the throttle. Very Happy Anyway, great job on the course.

Completely agree!

The sweeps coming back felt more like offset gates than sweepers. So I pitched the car a bit, attacked the back of the inside cone. Rinse and repeat!
