    Very cool and congrats to them. What can you tell us about the car? Mods? Tires? I noticed they were running without the diffuser blades, makes sense given the terrain. Two other questions why do the brake lights appear to flash and did you notice the slight wiggle under heavy braking?

    LED lights will flicker due to how a camera films. LEDs actually do not put out constant light and the camera captures this. To our eyes it looks constant.

    Headlights were not on, only the daytime driving lights. You can see the flicker very early in the run, only the taillights are flickering. The third brake light is not on. When the brakes are on (and the third brake light is lit) it doesn't look like there is any flicker.

    That was awesome! Hoping the ACR-E's splitter has a replaceable rub strip or is just super durable...wow!

    This is a known Gen V issue. Under hard acceleration the brake lights would flicker.

    A 2'fer!!

    Where were the rest of the cars?!! They were that far out front the whole time?

    N' yea, lots of bouncing suspension, sparks and scraping going on.

    I work in a building full of Porsche fanatics.. this doesn't bode well for me.
    Last year I ran around the building cheering the win. This year, prolly not so much.
    Might be a career limiting move.

    Well couldn't wait so I youtubed it and saw the 5 day rundown. Looks like it was the same battle from last year between the GT3 RS and the ACR and the same respective drivers. Porsche crashed trying to make up time on the ACR-E. It was very close until the crash. I think the Viper had only a 25+ second lead up until the Porsche crash. Each car had stage victories. Viper cruised to victory on final day. Subbie came in 2nd due to Porsche crash...Viper and Porsche both left the in class competition behind but Porsche crash promoted Subbie to 2nd a minute plus back...

    Interesting comments on the last video rundown...Some guy (thinking Porsche super fan) claims that the Whites (Viper drivers not the race ) are cheaters that's why they won again but they will only discuss it on pm.

    Holy hell,....how does the navigator not puke all over the place?? Is the navigator able to spin his computer screen 360 degrees on a mount? I'd love to see more on how the navigator does his job and what equipment he is using.

    Kudo's to the driver, so hard to race fast in those conditions....just wow.
