Awesome riding this weekend, Jeff! A 5-6 second/lap improvement is HUGE! I would love to see more Empulse riders out there next year.
Thanks Brian! Yeah, I was waaay more comfortable out there this time around. Partially due to having some track days, but also in large part due to all the pointers and whatnot over the past year from Eric/Shelina/Shane/you/everybody. I feel like a couple of the corners I've actually kinda figured out now.
Seriously, to everybody that was not there, I'll say the same thing I said last year: there is nothing in the world like getting in from a session and getting to bug the race team about 'hey, how does turn X work?' Also it was yet again awesome meeting a ton of fellow EV nerds. There were a lot of first-timers this time around as well.
Anyway, as promised, here's some video!

Turn 2 continues to mystify me in its crazy double apexness. I need to not slow down between 3 and 4 -- watching the video makes me realize how much extra room I had. Also I think I needed to turn in later going into the corkscrew.
But I am quite happy! Susanna passed me early on and I eventually caught back up with her. I pretty much achieved my goal of not lifting down the front straight -- it is harder than it looks, what with turn 1 being basically full-speed and totally blind. I got to consistently 100+ by the end of the day.
Also the very last lap was with the regen off from heat so I was a little more cautious.
Look at ~9:00 or so for a certain Mr. Bostrom gracefully carving past everybody on the TTX.
