I have a Dinan Stage II suspension, GC plates, dinan pulley and rear exhaust.

The difference was the line I was using. Far from a classic wet line but there were certain turns where I was getting on the gas way earlier. So by the time he got on the gas, I had significantly closed the distance. Then by the time he started to pull on me, he got into a braking zone. The MP4 was staying on the dry line through the braking zones, I was straddling the areas typically used.

I've driven with that guy before. On the dry, he definitely pulls on the straights. I can keep up and make up the gap in the corners but I'm sure I'm working much harder and sliding and throttle steering a lot more.

I'll give that MP4 all the credit in the world. He WAS driving it on a wet track and wasn't really holding back.

No need to except for certain places. I found that I could get away with staying about 2 tire widths off the normal line which isn't as polished.

The key with NT01s is to avoid standing water at ALL costs.
