I’m getting close. When watching my 2:10.1 PB video at VIR i got held up by a Cayman on the front straight. He pointed me by but then kept his foot in it. I had to breath off the throttle and it cost me 10mph. This became apparent when I was doing the data overlay onto the video, but that is the way things go at DE’s. I was stoked with the 2:10 but it would have been super cool to get under 2:10 at VIR.
I’m working on some setup adjustments and getting my brake balance dialed in to find some more time, but I am driving the wheels off my car. I know I can get into the 2:09’s but I first need to run 2:10-2:11’s consistently as a driver. T1 and T12 need improvement as well as some testicular fortitude up the esses. 2:08’s are achievable, especially if I have a rabbit to chase. That is when I have set the most of my PB’s. But I also think you will improve in the GT4 as you get to know the car better.
, VIR has two long straights, 3 if you count the uphill esses, so its a power track for sure. The IS38 definitely helps. Picked up 6mph on the straights, but it has also made the car more difficult to drive. The way the APR tune develops power makes me blow the wheels off at the most in-opportune moments. Looking at going with an EQT custom tune and actually dialing the power back and have the power/torque delivered in a more linear fashion. If I can get the power down better on the exit of T-12 onto the longest straight I think I can pick up some mph at the end of the straight.
