He was being hard on the car on purpose The guy won the regional SCCA championship last year, so he knows what he's doing.

I let him drive my car for a few laps, and he was 2 seconds off my best time of the day. At a track that only takes 1:02 Overall, he was very impressed with the SMG transmission and he kept the car perfectly balanced around the track (shifting, braking, cornering ..etc)
