Yeah because NT01s remain sticky 'til they cord, I hear. I'll probably run a couple more sets of NT01s too before I try something else like TD, etc.

Yeah, I'd expect nothing less. However, tire sizes might be an issue. TD, so far, does not come in 275/35/18; but, rather, 265/35/18, 285/30/18 & 295/30/18.

Anyhow, I know there are several seconds to shave off just by attacking certain sections with better lines. From this point on, (as I don't plan on any engine/exhaust tunes or mods nor aero) it's all up to me to get to that 2:00 mark - better lines, better driving, better strategy, etc.

You must. Be sure to pair'em up with capable suspension for maximum performance.

The white stuff is all over the place up here and it is a four month wait until the next track day .

As usual, nice driving OC .
We indeed are lucky. I'd go stir-crazy if I had to hibernate for four months... I'll be sure to post track videos regularly for y'alls consumption as a substitute. Thanks CanAutM3.
