    wow 1.40 vs 1.49 in the 2002. 2002 looked good. Those GT3 are an amazing piece of kit. Good job.

      Great video! Your cars are beautiful.

      The sound restrictions at Laguna are so ridiculous. The times I have been there they enforce a 90db sound limit. I have to leave it in 4th and just lug it by the booth at about 2500 RPM....which is murder with a low torque engine like the S14. If I go by there full throttle, I instantly get black flagged, more due to intake sound than exhaust sound. Some completely stock cars cannot make a 90db limit.

      The politics of it are infuriating. The racetrack has been there since the 1950s. A few years back a bunch of wealthy people decided to build homes close to the track, then started complaining about the noise. Being rich people, of course the county reacted and enacted ever more demanding noise limits. But you probably know all that....

      Your E30 time is impressive....but the 2002 time even more so. I would not have guessed a 2002 could lap that fast at Laguna.
