    That sucks. Nothing is worse than having mechanical problems. At COTA I had the throttle of the Z I race stick wide open in a pack of 10 cars going into turn 3. It's always something…oh well. At least you made it out alive!

    This was super dope. Looking forward to more videos from this endurance series. Quick question: how do you minimize wind noise when filming in an open top car like this?

    More footage next time covering more overtakes/stress of driver change and refuelling

    don't mind me but why were you grabbing the e-brake lever every once in awhile

    I rode this track last year on my motorcycle and always wanted to go back and go at it in a sorted car. This was very cool Mr Farrah!

    I would be happy to see more videos like this. I can imagine how much fun it was to drive the car.

  17. Post By romero1337

    Too bad the clutch gave up.

  20. Post By Robert A Booey

    The first car I shifted was this, I watched my dad my push in the clutch I shifted passenger seat. Reality this clutch and manual are the best

    WTF is up with youtube it is no longer recommending your videos to me. I can tell off of your views on your recent videos its doing the same to alot of other people.

  22. Post By Stephen Mueller

    Dude, there were a couple turns you came out of where i yelled "fuck yea matt" in my head lol. 370z was just bad, my sister drives better. That one miata tho…cya on the right!

    The racing gods strike! My throttle cable came off our Continental ST cars at the Grand Am race in 09. Also in an MX-5. Love most of that track, but hate some bits of it. Especially that goofy decreasing radius part before you start heading back to the main straight.

    Is the car in the thumbnail the one you drove? It looks like a meathead car, but I can't be certain

  25. Post By Tiberius Hrafn-Úlfur

    When are you going to be at Summit Point again? I live 20 minutes from the track

  26. Post By Matthew McCarthy

    We need more AER videos. You seem to be having a lot of fun driving there and you talk about it so much in the podcast that the rest of us need more videos like this. Even if it's GoPros slapped in as an after thought and half edited later, we still want to see it.

  27. Post By P. A. Grens

    Thanks for sharing, Matt. Bummer about the clutch, but the car sounded great and seemed set up really well. Nice driving!

  28. Post By Reasure

    may sound like a amateur question, but what are those nets for?

  29. Post By SpitfireR3v

    That's me passing Matt at 10:46!

    I can't wait to see laps from summit point! One of my favorite tracks on iracing, i've done god knows how many laps in an mx-5 and a skippy around that place! Best of luck and y'all definitely should have stolen the skippy shocks just the contemplation made for a helluva story.

    The NC needs more love, stiff rx8 derived chassis that accepts a v8 and fat tires no problem- modern AC cobra! Or 2.5 engine swap either built NA or turbo if you want to keep it simple. The balance and handling are obviously fantastic but this chassis can handle huge power adders unlike na/nb/nd

  32. Post By White Pony Guy

    That looks so fun!

  33. Post By mattybeatzkidd

    i remember you talking about this on the podcast. that sucks man you guys were doing well out their..

  34. Post By NoBrakes23

  35. Post By ErronGames

    Aw darn, well that is part of racing. But still was a really well put together video, and I always like your narration. You weren't joking with how aggressive they were! Phew! Looked like some really solid, really fun laps that you did get in though! +1 :)
