The Throttle Dogs the Show is now live! UPDATED

Update!

Well guys - the Live show is finally up! We have lots to work on for the next one, but hopefully we can gain traction and start adding to the Lap Dog leaderboard! Thanks for all the support!

Here's the vid:



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. 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.. 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. Hoping to have 600LT and Senna and P1 on track at some point.

I really enjoyed these videos and subscribed as well! Thank you so much for the time and effort to produce this. I only have a few track days of experience, but I understand the importance of tire selection and the difference it can make with lap times. I think some of your subscribers may also be interested in your tire selection being posted along with the other metrics for each vehicle along with the lap time. Thanks again and I can’t wait for more videos!

Thanks for the words of encouragement... with CJ owning multiple businesses and doing a ton of CEO level stuff and me being a heart surgeon, putting out these videos are a labor of love... but we absolutely have fun when we do it.

Great suggestions, we generally just use the tires that come from the factory - but we always spec the most aggressive. The GT3 had Michelin Cup 2s.

Nice work, Rich, those are very entertaining and informative. You guys need to add some data, though, that would really be awesome!

720S Vid is NOW UP!!!

When the 30 minute vid pops up you'll hear CJ talk about why he was surprised the car was so fast!
