    Understood. I was just wondering if you knew if the paddles triggered electronic solenoids to do the shifting, or a pneumatic system. I can't find any details on it. The shifting is really fast.

    Here's a fast lap of the combined 5-mile circuit... in 4K. You're welcome :)



    To answer the other questions--
    - Shifting is SMG and is pneumatic. It's basically instant.
    - Paddle-shift vs stick: both are fun, but paddle shifting is without a doubt faster around a racetrack. It's quicker than any human can achieve, it requires no attention, and it never makes a mistake.

    So much win. And reminded me of playing a video game - which is the closest I'll ever get to something like that. Thanks for sharing!!

    That's a really, really nice track. I also don't think I've ever seen an in-car recording so crisp and clean.

    Ben, do you have any Sonoma videos with the gt350r or acr? Would love to see some high def videos on that track with one of your rides.

    The real question here is did you pay ADM on it? SCAB SCREW?

    No ADM. It helps to have a sustained relationship with my local Ford racing dealer.

    I got the SCREW variant, plenty of room for passengers on those photo expedition runs...

    Nice. Would be cool to see your quality photos of the raptor with the tail gate down and your .338 poised ready to strike.

    Just got it today; late-arriving Xmas gift from #Racewife. So far: significant, evolutionary step forward from the Gen1. Lighter, more torque, more frame stiffness, quieter. The turbo 6 is a better match for the truck than the N/A V8 because of the midrange. More thoughts once I've got some miles on it.

    I hope Trump doesn't ban imports of foreign vehicles for Ben. :D

    Ben, do you ever watch Barrett-Jackson and consider buying an old muscle car? Or are you mostly interested with modern day track day supercars? Just wondering.
