How about I just run it in OLOA, that close enough?

I like that idea.

But you need to clean the lens on your camera, unless it is actually foggy in your garage

Better, but the amount of actual track time is still less than you'd get at 1 HPDE. Each track gets 2 sessions of 2 laps each. So 24 laps?

Bring it TX/OK in August, and pound out 10 - 20 minute sessions in 100+ heat with no problems, to ME that is a reliable track car.

In the end, it half-assed both of them--not particularly boy-racerish, and not luxurious either. I wonder if a second generation could figure it out, but I kinda doubt it.

I dunno... a lot of G35s get turned into boy racer cars, too. Hyundai just cut out the middleman.

I am a little disappoint... only 4 laps a track on OLOA?

Yep, standing start, two laps. 1 morning session, 1 afternoon session. And the guys at the fast end of the grid have an advantage since they can be done by 2pm and head off to the next venue, where those at the back may not leave until 5pm or later.

One of my friends figured that one weekend of trackday fun was equivalent to 40 full drag racing seasons, hp/time wise.
