If you want pointers, you can go on throttle MUCH harder after inner apex. The 1299 has insane exit drive grip. And you can hold more throttle input and brake later, instead of coasting.

Yeah! I know that guy. I pit in the garage with him. Super cool dude and very fast. He's actually put down a high 2:19 out there on that 1299 SL. He was the one right in front of me in the vid at the beginning, slowing for cool down/pit.

I usually use him as my rabbit sometimes.

Thanks for sharing the lap!
I think so. I noticed that too. Might have to upgrade the radiators. This day was the hottest I've ever ridden in out there. They actually discount the track day because the heat is so extreme.

It was 105deg + out there at the peak of the day. Crazy hot. I also low-sided in T19 mid day Sunday, but that was purely due to heat/physical exhaustion. Getting her patched up to get back out there for the RR fest at the end of October. Weather should be waaaaaay better then.

I'm always open to anything and everything. I want to try to drive out a bit harder, but just unsure how much it will hold AND how much I trust the electronics.

Only 1 way to find out..

Nice! I'll check it out. I've got some coaching already lined up from a guy by the name of Spies..

His former race mechanic has a granddaughter that races MX with my son. He's put in the good word for me..

I thought the same before I became a member out there. The current lap record (I forget which direction) was done on a current-gen R1 if that tells you anything about whether the 1299 would work out there.

Gimmie a heads up if you guys make it out. I'll keep an eye out for the 390.

That's awesome. Which GoPro are you using? I need to upgrade. They just announced the Hero6 today but I'm sure a Hero5 would be fine.

I thought it was set on an R6? I know Mike Sanchez has put down some fast laps on Brad Bohac’s R1M but I was under the impression that the lap record was on his R6.

Anyway, I’m in agreeance on bringing the 1299 out. I’ve run mine and the 675R and they’re both a blast on that track.
