I think I know which one you are referring to. Seems like a simple solution (and nothing wrong with that) but I can't fit it into my Boxster unless I sacrifice a chair or something else. And setting it alone is going to suck ass.

The Type R hatch is great. I fit a spare set of wheels, all my tools, a floor jack, jack stands, and a jerry can with room to spare LOL.

Turns out I did a 1:19.86 at Mission last time. I managed to get a 2:04.55 today at Ridge. Still slow but feeling good - I hit 2:05.87 two sessions in a row.

Met SSM_DC5 and there was a LC500 on track.

Washed out video incoming. Any pointers would be appreciated [emoji2]. I know I shouldn't be waving thanks when I get a point by or cheering when I break my PB [emoji28]. I was stuck on 2:05.9 for like 2 sessions and got a little excited lol.

FWD is weird. Reverse stagger is also weird, but fun. I tried to take T6 faster before but it gets kinda sus cause I feel the rear end wanting to slide out.

Need to work on not death gripping the steering wheel. No major brake failures this time around and I didn't need to do cooldown laps either. That said I did start to feel the brakes fade and it did almost fade completely on me but I recognized it - this time around.

It's hard to tell for sure because of the video but I think there is opportunity for improvement for seating position which (in my humble opinion) is enabling you to do the death grip. If you move your seat closer towards the steering wheel or can pull it forward towards you, your elbows, shoulders, and wrist should be able to relax and your turns should be effortless.

It took me a few sessions to figure out my optimal seating position where death grip doesn't happen anymore.

We had a pretty awesome weekend away - Sat/Sun was the Maryhill Hillclimb in WA and then a Monday track day at ORP. I spent a bunch of time with my data from ORP before going back and looking at the G loads I was achieving versus what I was seeing at other tracks and it gave me a number of "targets" to focus on increasing speed through and it really paid dividends on lap time. ORP is a super fun track and well worth the (long) drive - CCW is my preferred direction.
