    @RAW FPS 100% this. Also film more the track itself, cornering, straights etc. Whats the point to show your face 90% of the time when doing track times? All that makes you to look complete amateurs who just wanna get attention in a way that it ruins all the fun in these track videos.

    @mighty car nods. Gopro's have a spot metering mode where it will expose for the center of what the camera sees. Result, the outside/track will be correctly exposed.

    Sounds lovely, especially for a four banger. Love the SC whine and the exhaust pops near the redline. Loved to see you chopping that Porsche. It was clearly struggling around the corner, losing grip while you just flat ironed that curve with that little monster. Excellent!

    Shame about the overexposure on the shots through the screen....if you lighten up the interior the camera may not have to drive so hard. Bit of white card in the roof lining should be enough to do it.

    Santy Clause3 months ago

    After an unfortunate loss of patience, I have discovered that Exige sun visors will pull out by just twisting back and forth while pulling them away the spear-like pin they are hung on. You get an extra 2-3 inches of windscreen vision in top clearance to peer out of from your driving seat. The visors pull away toward the rear view mirror in the middle of the screen. I am 6'2" and found it truly irritating to hunch forward under the visors when desirous of observing traffic light signals and signage at intersections etc.

    I wouldn't worry about all the negative or comments saying heel and toe etc. Most of these USloft experts can't do it and probably never been to a track. Enjoy the experience and the car. It don't matter what time you get, as long as you are having fun it's all that matters

    Good job man. Alignment and tires are really a make or break for a track oriented car, and had everything to do with how poorly it took corners before. Make sure you really focus on your entry and exits, wind the car out into the exit, and hit the outer limit of the track. You'll be so insanely fast thru the the corners.

    Why are you not using the whole track width in approaching & exiting the corners? & missing the apexes? You should have done a lot better since the nature of your job focusing on car mods. May I suggest a series of professional track driving courses for you so that you can really exploit the real lotus experience...

    Need to adjust the white balance on some of those gopro's, looks like you're driving in a cloud! Also, in the rear facing interior shots, the engine is moving around quite a bit. Not sure if its the extra power but would definitely suggest someone see the engine mounts look good, and if there's any trouble getting into gear for sure pop in some poly inserts as that will help.

That all being said, I think it's really a testament to Toyota/Subaru how good a time the BRZ can put down with a turbo and some light mods. That's really impressive if you consider the investment difference.
