Had a blast yesterday at Laguna Seca Raceway with Exclusive Track Days for the their high dB day. It had rained the night before so the track was green and 59F was the high of the day so grip was fleeting.

I broke into the 1:47s

And had an off in turn 6 in the morning.

Offroad meets black flag.

How bad did Control spank you for going 4 wheels off?

Also, so much less dramatic looking in-car video compared to the pictures.

I agree, I almost didn't post the onboard but try driving into the dirt at 60 mph next time you're on the freeway :ughdance:

WOW, the one got you puckered I'm sure. It almost seems like the RS was made to do that though :wink-new:

Frozenspeed, Jochen Van Cauwenberge took these awesome photographs. Follow him on IG, he takes incredible motorsport pictures. These shots of me are pedestrian compared to his other work. His attention to detail is incredible.

Love the way your wheels/tires look. Care to share their specs?
Tires are Nitto NT01's in 245/40-18

Wheels are matte black CCW Corsair C15s in 18x9 with +45 offset. Note, I am using 6 mm spacers here.

@maschoff,

What's it like on the 18" wheels?
Faster?

Great photos by the way.

I prefer them, they don't roll over as bad and absorb a lot of the energy from bouncing.

The 19s are like big slugs of metal and the ride quality is much harder.

Thanks bro.
I must say I do prefer the look of the 18" in your photo. Looks very low profile.
The video and expletive was great!
