Default I love the track!

Went out to High Plains Raceway last weekend. It is ~50miles east of Denver.
Video shot with Harry's Laptimer App, Iphone5 and Ipod Touch for Cam#2.

Looks like great fun. Can you straddle some of those gators on the insides of the corners without dragging the belly of the car? It is hard to tell from the video, but a lot of racers scrape seconds off of their laptimes cutting the corners that way. Some corners you can do it and some you can't.

Nice, going back to the recent MSM cam install, did you notice any difference?

To be honest not really. I would probably need a real tune to feel any noticeable improvements. On the track i'm going to say it helped because I according to my data I had slightly (very slightly) better acceleration coming out of the corners.

According to my laptimer, i went ~2sec faster from my last time out at the track (stock cam and usdm ecu).

Hope that answers the question.

That looks like a nice place to run. But it looks chilly.
