I'm not saying that you can't drive by any means. Those are some good times for sure. But to say that a S/C car is not faster on track because you were now faster on track with a S/C isn't the right reasoning.
I know. You mentioned confidence, that's all. I'm going all out with or without the blower. Obviously driver skill is one of the big variables, but you are basing your judgement on one lap. I'm basing mine on a whole season of track days with and without the kit which includes things that can't go on paper like the overall feel of the car.

So maybe the big lesson here is mods won't necessarily make you faster (even ones you'd expect to really help). Becoming a better driver is the best mod you can do.
