Nice!

How often do you drive courses that don't require shifting after the start? I haven't watched any CM videos before, but I guess I imagined a lot of shifting involved...

Believe or not, there isn't much usually. Maybe the occasional 3rd

With a Sawzall and some JB Weld anything is possible...

Looks like I had the right idea with my line choices but I couldn't get the car to keep rotating mid-corner. I think these tires are dying of death after only ~70 runs #streetclasslife

Yup, Most people weren't backsiding the first slalom cone, taking too much distance on the 180's and not giving up enough speed on the 180 before the finish right.

But did they have to put up with all the furious HS torques?

I probably could've backsided that first slalom better but I felt like I got into a clean rhythm quickly afterwards that helped me get out of the slalom into the tricky sweeper afterwards. Setting up before the offsets in the back stretch really seemed to pay off as it was just flat out if you made it through the double-cone gate clean.
