1st one still unanswered

Judging from the picture's file name "QuickSilver exhaust McLaren F1.jpg", I'd venture to guess it's a McLaren F1. But it's just a guess.

I think we all need to hit a TB on the way back from C&C tomorrow.

Thanks for the advice I'll stay away from the Stratus

While everyone seems to bad mouth these cars, I've had very good luck with the 1st generation Dodge Stratus/Chrysler Cirrus. My older son drove a '95 Cirrus for over 100K miles with very few issues. My younger son drove a '98 Stratus for 120K, then wrecked it. Absolutely no electrical or drive train issues - no leaks, no drips. We replaced it last year with another '98 with 70K miles and so far so good.

Dan, you're going to need a bigger garage. The Diablo a CGT and now a CS?

There variations on the double clutch downshifts - the one shown on the video is the "heal 'n toe" double clutch downshift done while braking. This is the "real deal" but requires the most skill.

A step in the learning process is to do the double clutch downshift without braking. One foot on the clutch, the other on the gas. This is not useful on the track but can be use on the street (e.g. downshifting prior to passing another car on a 2-lane). But it gives you a way of getting the muscle memory established prior to moving on to the next step. You'd be surprised how quickly your left leg and foot get into the habit of doing the double clutch. It becomes second nature pretty quick.

The trick to the heal and toe is maintaining uniform pressure on the brake while rotating your foot to blip the throttle. The pedal set-up in the car is critical. If the pedals aren't in the correct position (fore and aft) it's difficult to do.
