thats fine. Zims car should be faster because he has a higher power setup (625 or 650i dont know for sure) and constant tune revisions from ESS, while my friends car was one of the oldest ESS600 cars out there. plus we also didnt do a track day, i did like 3 passes in it. i found that stiff suspension mode worked better and eliminated wheel hop for me.

as far as trap and et goes, it definetly not a direct correlation and really depends on the run. i have seen it go both ways, logic for both sides makes sense. car should be done this weekend and then it will see atco again to break my own E.T record
