The 5.0 ate them all up. I have a few stills, but the real treat, I'm working on converting the HD in car video to publish on the web. Have to go out of town on business, so may be a week or so. But you guys are going to be very proud of how the 5.0 did. No Reins rocked Sebring and the car got an incredible amount of attention.
Is it true at all, that while braking late, you'll feel shutter based on uneven braking left-right? Or did it feel smooth through?

Did you heat your tires up enough to chunk them out? Are you going to use R compounds on that thing eventually? How much of the stock pads did you burn through during 4 sessions?

did you go without traction control in the 3-4 sessions? If so, how easy was it to keep the backend in?
