Is it me or was 2:32 a pretty damn close shave? I love Spa. While watching the video, I'm picturing the green recommended lines from Forza

you would think that with the camera outside it would not overheat but apparently that was not the case

Trust me from experience that the video games does nothing for you when you are actually on the track. I thought the same thing and that all went out the window on the first turn. Its a whole new world friend

I'm sure it is but knowing the track's every turn and angle ahead of time must surely help.

Was that an F80 M3? I'm sure it's not E9x because of absence of hood vents

MW should have let SO go by a lot earlier, as he knew the racing line A LOT better and was just able to crush it. Also, is the SO a DCT? I know people love the 6 MT (myself included), but this time around I really think the DCT makes a huge difference, especially with so much torque being available early on and the transmission being able to quickly get you to the right spot automatically. DCT for the win.

The SO was a 6 MT and was redlining, The MW was short shifting the whole time at 5,500 RPM. "Following the break in period".

I wouldn't say my car crushed the SO. You'll be surprised how quick the manual was around corners since its lighter.

I recorded in 1440 with the gopro. Maybe that's why the camera overheated

What was the black car that overtook at the end of the first lap? That was seriously quick as the M3 and 4 were not slow.
