This guy can be a little annoying, but man…I have some respect for his driving in this vid. Easy to roll fast in a straight line, but to trust the aero especially in a car with the engine in your behind, and with that lateral acceleration, takes some experience; not just balls. lol.

The jump is at 20:17, right before the lowest point of the ‘ring.

Have they figured out what to do to remove the pieces without damaging the matte part?

The plan is to mask the surrounding area really, really well and use a piece of fishing line to unseat the badge. I’m hoping that works.

Beyond annoying. I can't watch his videos. "Well, Mischa said..." or "Mischa thinks..." I don't understand why people care so much about what he thinks.

A lot of people pay too much attention to some Internet randoms with a camera or a mic. Especially those life coaches trying to sell us a fake dream, but I digress.

He's good behind the wheel, but he's crashed a couple viewers' cars and doesn't really car if the car is, say, overheating throughout the video. Some might say he's got no time to watch the gauges which only confirms my opinion that he's sometimes over the line during tourist drives (pun intended). His 2nd channel is even more annoying, lasted about a minute before closing the tab.

I'm sure he'd be a good coach for when I visit the NS this year, though.

I was subbed to him a few years ago but unsubbed after because it got monotonous.

Misha was a coach actually for a Ring Taxi company that this year didn't continue to do taxing because they didn't get selected. He was in a few accidents due to the drivers in the Taxi causing crashes, the two of them I know are pretty bad that it affected him.

Recently Misha has been racing with a team that includes two other youtubers, one of them is, Super GT. What used to be the taxi company is now apparently just a hang out place for the time being.

Sedan_Clan yeah, btw from what I understand everything is adjustable from the suspension for a Porsche GT car. It is something that Porsche tends to always do. Chamber, caster, toe. I thought about lowering my car a tad bit but I am already risking bottoming out even with FAL I probably won't.

That’s really good info. Having OEM ride height, etc. is a huge plus. Have you logged any significant miles yet?

Car still with my detailer, he is taking his time because he is double covering areas. Not yet. The rain coming isn’t helping because I was supposed to get her back this weekend but the rain will stop that.

It’s a sports car, you can get away with funky colors. Looks nice. Ceramics go perfect with MB.

I'm glad we are able to pressure people into making bad financial decisions.

congrats. great spec too. black pdls, ceramics, buckets, manual.

from what i've read about miami blue its very hard to correctly photograph. alot of phones post processing removes the teal. there was like a 30 page thread about it on rennlist lol

regardless. it always looks great in person.
