I didnt get a lap time. I don't have a traqmate.

Obviously my lap time was quicker than the 996, the 993, the 997s, and the gt3 that I passed during that session.

Too slow for Vettel. Stop being a drama queen, all the video proves is that a boxster went faster than some novices in 911s. You cant prove that you didnt get a buddy who was a better driver or your instructor to take the car out for a session.

Show us all of the session and multiple ones. Or and in car. Otherwise this means nothing. It took forever for a dude tomake the video shorter and you are desperate to prove a point. Poi t not proved. And your car is still slow.

Good driving man, sometimes it doesn't matter how powerful and better handling car you have, it all comes down to driving skills. When I used to do track days in my R1 I saw the instructor destroying liter bikes using his r6. If driving skill are equally matched then is comes down to machine..

He's realized that he spent a lot of money on a pendulum. Now he's lashing out at a guy who had the nerve to post a video of himself passing numerous expensive pendulums in a base boxster.

Rule #1 in the 911 Club: Never ever let anyone make the pendulum look bad.

Here's Alex (Steelgray3) in his LSB M3. Good friend of mine. Check out the 7:10 mark Lair.

My pendulum is over 20 seconds faster than your toy car at your home track. Your laps are in slow motion. You keep bragging about the video as if it is an actual accomplishment.

Anyone can cut and paste one session passing cars.

Anyone can brag about the performance of an expensive track-specific car compared to a box-stock base boxster driven by a novice in a novice group.

Um no, my car was still 20 seconds faster as a full weight street car at 3650 lbs with driver. Drove it to work every day for a couple of months. Now its closer to 30 seconds.

Any more excuses?

I dont need excuses. I was driving a box-stock base boxster in a novice group.

What do you drive?

A 911.

If your mid engine layout is so superior you should be able to pass any ill handling pendulums right? Since all of us are spinning off the track as you stated before.

You even put up a challenge for your imaginary friend with a radical and I accepted only to find out there was no real friend.

This is what leads me to think you may be lying about whos driving the boxster as well.

Obviously thinking isn't your strong suit. PM me your number if you ever make it back over here, and I'll introduce you to the PCA instructor who gave me a check ride and signed me off. Then I'll introduce you to the GT3 driver and the z06 driver that were there with me. They'll be happy to set you straight.

What kind of 911? What year is it?

I don't get it either. You'd think a seasoned track driver would appreciate a video that shows a novice in a pos base boxster running down and passing 911's of every stripe.
