Saw my first 3-Eleven in the flesh and on track...

Had a chance to run with this baby at Spring Mountain....the 3-Eleven looks so much better in the flesh than in photos. This was the Race model w/o the roll cage--460BHP/Xtrac sequential. The owner was having his race team try to do some setup work at the track as best they could to improve its handling characteristics.

While the 3-11 was fast in a straight line, the owner's lap times were much slower (several seconds) than mine in my 2-11. When driven by a pro-driver (current Pirelli World Challenge TC Class Champion), the car was able to do slightly better lap times than my current stock-engined 2-11, as driven by me, aka The Old Man according to @eldonz

This 3-11 needs a lot of setup work (and more) as it was delivered to the owner from the dealer in order to reach its true potential, IMHO.
But, it LOOKS MARVELOUS on track! ��
