Apex Late in a slow ranger

Worked a 14hr day and had clear roads so I got a little frisky leaving work. (the garmin dash cam creates an "incident report" everytime I do this. Guess it doesn't like the MASSIVE G-LOADS I pull on these two corners)

Two more runs.. looks like the ranger will only hit about 53-55mph at the apex of this corner.

As comparisons:
- My 95 vette would hit 75+ and I was a bit too scared to got WOT the whole way with that car
- Last week I took a 17 Acura MDX through there and touched 68mph. It was not my car so I didn't push it too hard. Although I think its got more potential and could easily do 72+
- 17 Civic EX-T (turbo 6 speed) I could go WOT only on dry summer days and it would kit the apex at about 72mph

Who would have thought a Vette can take a corner faster the a Ranger.
