New Video: SRT8 track session at NJMP, TC completely off........

Advanced drivers and instructors run group only

With track mode on and TC completely off, technically the truck turns into a sports car, allowing the driver the ability to 4 wheel drift and throttle steer.....

I start slow to warm up the vehicle, then pick up the pace thru the video.

I am truly impressed by my tow vehicle, I can only imagine what it will do with proper brakes and tires......

Enjoy......

How were the brakes this time? Have you at least changed the brake fluid? Made a world of difference in the WK1

Re: New Video: SRT8 track session at NJMP, TC completely off........

Thanks guys, it was a blast especially looking at the face of flaggers as the truck was zipping down the track........

tavaresdc, unless you are in an advanced group, I wouldn't try those lines with an instructor in the car.......they are different from what they normally teach...... furthermore, we were running the chicanes in preparation of the Rolex support race we are going to have in May. Most likely they will not run that configuration during your event.

cmn1, did not have a chance to change anything, but actually the brakes held up well due to the fact that it was a longer track with only 2 turns that required threshold braking....

Sweet video. Truck looks and sounds good out there. But man, I really love watching races on the big track at NJMP, its such a nice facility and the Villas @ Breighton are just awesome, the fact that they all have a trackside deck is sweet!

Okay, I'm on my way to Lime Rock for another club racing weekend.
