I heard someone was organizing a group buy on a CF hood? Sounds perfect
for you Jimmy.
A quick trip report from Thunderhill: I got reacquainted with the eS2
track car while visiting the great folks of NorCal/Golden Gate last
weekend at T-Hill. Tom V graciously offered the eS2 II for a session,
and I had a great time blasting around the track. I am so used to the
911 now that the abundance of infinite trailing-throttle oversteer is a
great revelation and lot's of fun. In too fast? Can't make the apex?
Just haul out of the gas and the car pirouettes around it's nose. After
that, it's point-and-shoot. There was an e46 M3 with R-compound in my
group, and I thought the 13 yr old S2 design showed pretty favorably.
The run ended a few laps short of checker when the front right tire
failed in turn 10. Seperated 2/3s of the way around the sidewall.
Fortunately no damage to anything else. The tire was a Sumitomo HTZ,
same as I run on my car, and which I will never buy again.
