Nice. Looks like a good time. How did she handle?

It handled great and the braking was amazing! I was a little surprised, but the other people were VERY surprised. Especially the GT-R I passed in the first session. My best time was 2:09.xx with consistent times in the 2:12's. My Nissan 370z does it in 2:07, so that's saying something! I did get pretty worried about oil temps though. They peaked at 280 and I didn't like that at all. Might have to add a larger oil cooler.

Nice. VIR is only about an hour from my house so I have toyed around with running there just for fun.

Not at all. And I was really pushing it into the braking zones, not touching the brakes until the first braking cone. In fact, I was able to make up some ground on other cars in the braking zones. I may have eaten through a set of pads pretty quickly, but I had a firm pedal all day. And best of all, the SRT felt steady under heavy braking from 110-30mph.
