A view of the car's new hood, (grafted in Viper GTS Vents and NACA Duct) definitely kept the temps down on a hot 90 degree day with high humidity at the track! The car ran 210-212 all day hot weather with plenty of power to spare!

Chasing a Porsche Carrera 4S, breathing down his neck, he gave me the pass, but I gave him the pass later, the SRT was not as nimble as that 4wd

Thanks Joel! Had a blast, 5 x 30 minute sessions of HPDE= 36 bottles of water in 90F 85% humidity, car ran strong all day but I kept it technical so I can get my apexes and tracking out/power techniques down


Lookin' good, Meech! :thumbs_u:

Thanks brother, could not have done it without you making them available to me Stack Performance went on a 9 month back order the week before I bought them from you! Hope all is well in your world!

Great shots. Nice to hear the hood worked as planned.
Ran there last month for the first time with the Porsche Road Show. Great track.

Thanks Mike! Track was a lot of fun, love both of the NJMP tracks, not sure which one I like more, both very technical and challenging.

Two laps at NJMP Lightning, 1.9 miles, 10 turns .....running at 6/10ths speed and effort to nail down my lines, entering corners and exiting with power through the apexes. This is only my second time out, here's the track map and video:

At 3:22 into the video session 5 look to the right before the straight Camaro ZL-1 goes off and at 3:55 at the end of the straight red Corvette C4 goes off with damage.

Your videos are like mine... always yakkin' with the instructor! :mrgreen:

A little taller mount for the camera will give you a better view, but it's not critical. I had my GoPro in the same place as you. :)
