115-120mph through the Uphill Esses in a factory car isn't quick enough for you?

At VIR 2'38" what?

In the Car and Driver Lightning Lap article (also run on VIR Grand East) from Feb 2010, the Corvette Grand Sport ran a 2:58.8, the ZR1 was in the 2:51s, the Audi R8 V10 ran a 2:59, and the 2010 GT500 ran a 3:07. Methinks a 2:58.48 is lookin' pretty good based on all those numbers.

I also think this car easily has another 2 seconds in just by the way he lost so much speed at the top of the esses.

As far as being all over the place, it seems that live axle cars are a bit quicker with the rear hung out, but he over did it in some places.

Sorry, i need to rephrase that, i meant that in the straight line it can be 0.3 second behind the Z06 but in a full track be 2'xx behind it.....lame joke
