    Yeah she’s amazing on that track. I watched a documentary on her and it’s pretty amazing how she started and just what she can do on the Nurburgring.

    Speaking of the Nurburgring... I know it's not really the topic of this thread but that is about the only track I run on. I've gone around the Nurburgring (in a video game lol) thousands and thousands of times starting with Project Gotham Racing 2 on the Xbox back in 2004, all the Forza games, and Gran Turismo. I know every single corner and bump of that track.
    But if you put me in an actual car and told me to push the limits I'd shit myself if I were going that fast. In a video game you can always restart, in real life??? Not so much.

    Here's a damn good replication of the track. This was a lap for gold in Gran Turismo Sport on the PS4 and you can't change anything on the car. You have to race it as it is set up. But this lap was good enough for 16th in the world. I don't know where I am right now since I haven't played in a while.

    BMW M6 GT3. Time 6:43.984

    Me either :yay:

    The last episode was a good one. The one the week before... not so much. It was the only episode that I didn't really care for this season but hey... they can't all be perfect. I'm just happy that they seem to be settling into a grove that works for them. I really do wish they would find a proper race track as the eboladrome just doesn't do it for me. Other than that... Yeah... I'm finally enjoying the show now that they have their rhythm.

    So for those that haven't seen the last episode it is great. It ranks right below the Africa special of Top Gear but it is damn good.

    John is fucking amazing.

    Exactly... I loved the way John bounced up those hills lol. I know they didn't just build John out there but it made for good TV. But I was kind of surprised that it seemed the front seemed to be pulling way more than the back.

    At times it almost looked like it was FWD not 4WD.

    The front was definitely too light. Some axle tramp going on there.

    I noticed the same. Maybe it seemed that the front was pulling way more because most of the weight was rearward so the back tires weren’t spinning as much as the front? I don’t know. I was trying to figure it out.
