The closest I'll be able to drive that track for the foreseeable future is through my PS3. Lucky you.

In my MZ4 Coupe I'd have to be right on top of my game to hit 145mph. I was taking some mental notes and that Gallardo was faster in the hands of a novice than my MZ4 Coupe in the hands of a decent driver through quite a few turns.

The amount of grip, the mid mounted engine providing a shorter moment of inertia, the incredibly low center of gravity, the amount of POWER available all makes these über exotics incredibly easy to drive fast. You don't need much skills to rip out very fast laps.
hahah yeah, I would catch up to the Italia and sometimes pass him via the corners since the driver didn't seem very good, but on the straights he'd completely disgrace me

how did the lip work for you?
You're welcome! The lip is perfectly fine without the support rods. 13 different locations of secure mounting. Not surprising that it held up

neat pics
hahha yeah that X6M was driven by a lady. She paid for an instructor and was haulin' ass on track lolll. I tried to keep my distance from that beast. A few times, she was able to catch up to me, and was pushing hard into corners. I was more worried that her brakes would give out and we'd become Z4X6M sandwich
