    Underwhelming to be sure. But not boring... I watched it twice!

    Yeah, I spent Friday driving the Switzer P800 GT2 around BeaveRun. Dyno videos are boring but the on-track results of dyno tuning are anything but. 150mph on the front straight, easy as pie.

    How many laps did you do? How does it handle the heat?

    @niky: We drove the car 40 out of every 60 minutes for three hours. No heat issues, no problems whatsoever other than the utter capitulation of the front MPSCs. Let's be conservative and say 90 laps. My just-dicking-around runs would have been enough to sit at or near the top of the One Lap of America charts for BeaveRun, no sweat... and this car is totally stock other than the engine mods.
