Hey guys,

Just want to share this video my good friend put together showing clips of our last track day. The Macadamia 997 PDK is my car. The GTR and the STI was being driven my a F3 driver (man i hate to say it but the GTR is an amazing car). During the "playtime" between the PDK and the GTR, we were a bit cautious in twisty parts of the track but on areas of the track wherein we can really push the car... we try to go all out. What surprised me the most, if you look into 2:28 of the video (in the main stretch) my friend told me considering the GTR was in my slipstream, and that the GTR had 145 more hp, he couldn't seem to overtake me (and he was trying to)! We were trying to recon why...and we ended up with a conclusion that the hot weather affected the turbo power of the GTR and likewise since we only have 96 octane fuel available, the 530hp of the GTR wasn't being maximized.

Without being bias I have to say PDK rocks! :jump:

Enjoy!

Godspeed!

Cool video! I am about to have a track day myself. Wondering if you got an rock chips while you were on the track? Why didnt you decide to tape up the front or might you have had a clear bra? THoughts?
