Good to have you aboard, you are right about being alittle heavy in the corners but they sure take off in the straights.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNGgoUrTIXY

Welcome! I particularly like your '66 Fairlane - my first car was a '66 Ford in that color (Emberglo). Hope you're able to get a GT500 soon.

I'm in Fairfield county CT......part of the tri state area so we're close. I have only driven at Lime Rock once. It's a small track really good for the small cars not much room to let it unwind but good for learning the proper braking & cornering dynamics with my car.

I like LRP alot....you can get some pretty serious speed through no name and the downhill/main straight....

You have to have a lot of faith in the car's ability to corner at the base of the hill before the straight and also faith in the brakes at the end of the straight going into turn #1. That's where experence pays off big time.

absolutely....faith, experience, and a little bit of luck :D That's why they have that BIG runoff area at the end of the main straight :eek:
