Default When is your car the happiest

It's often said that one should never put race cars in a museum they are not happy there they would rather be on a race track.
I find my Serpent 950r is happiest in Toledo going down the back straight, the engine full song and taking the sweeper without letting up on the throttle and then hitting the crosstown section of the track and nailing the throttle.
I can't wait till spring.
