IIRC at 240HP, 240TQ, and 2400lbs, I think wheelspin is inevitable!

 

Love the plane, innocuous, un-winged wolf-in-sheep's-clothing orange Miata harassing the winged yellow Vette at 7:30 

 

Wonder what the driver was thinking seeing it in his rear view mirror!

Mature ears, never been to the track, I only heard spin exiting the Bus Stop. Is the spin thru diff. or tires??? Rumble strips, speed, Sounded like diff. to my ears.

Wheel spin or weak diff, Apex off, heal of the boot, toe of the boot and turn 1.

You will need a "real" diff to start.. then the suspension upgrades we talked about.  Can you run more tire? More gradual increase in boost or less boost at that rpm? range?

The driver of the vet should turn in his man card.  Todd should get an upgrade on his for sticking inside him and making the pass.
