Mike, this sounds great and I'll do my best to get to Summit. I actually practice no brake techniques when I'm trying to max my mpg just for fun when I can't go faster. Braking just turns fuel into heat, LOL. It's all about driving technique for sure, driving ahead of the car and making smooth transitions. Bruce MacInnes ( Skip Barber ) was my first real instructor and he preached smoothness with "an economy of motion in the cockpit". Establish a smooth, well controlled rhythm and build speed. It saves the car and wins races. I'm blessed with an endless supply of twisty back roads to drive and work on these skills often. I'm looking forward to meeting you and driving with you. The GT350 isn't the best fit for me since I trashed my right ankle when a deer hit me on my street bike and I really need a DCT or slushbox as heel and toe is no longer doable. But, damn, the 350 is so much fun to drive, and cost me a lot less than a PDK Cayman or slushbox Grand Sport.
