Default UPDATE The Throttle Dogs The Show is now UP!

UPDATE

So finally we have our first 30 minute show up! Thanks to everyone, especially Turn1 Club and Simraceway. We have a lot to improve - so thanks for bearing with us. And of course, we will take suggestions.

A few things we will do better:
-A real GPS lap timer with more data
-More off track reviews of the cars
-Guests
-More cars to set laps at Sonoma

Thanks again! Here it is:


Original Post:

Hey guys, I've been off the radar due to work.. and working on The Throttle Dogs - a joint media venture between CJ Wilson and myself.

I know we teased the times before but here are the actual vids (there was some video production issues.. IE the dude we hired didn't do **** so we had to get someone else to edit footage) so thanks for the patience.

We have a 30 minute youtube coming next week. In it, we compare 4 cars at Sonoma Raceway with CJ setting lap times in each car: Porsche GT3, GT3RS, Mclaren 720s, 675LT. Each car, he has one session to set the fastest lap time - which means about 25-30 minutes and 8-10 laps. There's no tweaking (except we lower the pressures by a standard amount as dictated by the Turn 1 Club pit crew).. he just gets in and drives like anyone else would.

The idea is that we will be able to compare times with multiple cars (hoping to get the 600LT, Senna, and P1 on there as well as Ferraris, Lambos and other porsches) - with just one driver, CJ, and one track, Sonoma.

Now Sonoma is a notoriously technical track that doesn't reward heavy hp cars - so take some of this with a grain of salt... but I think it's good enough to talk about.

So here it is.. it's a preview... CJ explains each lap with each car in the clips.

The 30 minute show will come out next week on our youtube channel ---> The Throttle Dogs.

Please subscribe if you like it and want to keep up with future videos.

First Videos is GT3 and 675lT. GT3RS coming soon.

If the embeds don't show here is the direct links:

Curious when an expert driver like CJ is driving cars like the 675 or RS for maximal lap times, is he shifting manually with the dual clutch trannies or letting the car shift automatically? I could not tell from the video, or maybe his hands were just too fast

Great idea and videos. Top three are so close any one of them could be on top on another day. Best, Allan

He's paddleshifting the paddleshift cars and manual/clutch shifting the stick cars.

Thanks! Yeah, the whole thign is a labor of love for CJ and I. We're super busy in our regular lives but thought it would be fun. Also, having all of them on the same track, same driver is something we don't see much of. So we're excited to bring more iterations of GT cars to add to teh lap dog leaderboard

Good to see this progressing. For hot laps the best view is to stick to the camera behind the driver that can show the hand inputs along with the line. Bonus for throttle/brake telemetry overlay. The GT3 view doesn't really show anything. Just a guy moving this hands randomly (I know that's not true but you get my point).
