Try running stock tires to see where is the limit and see if you can get same time This is my goal for next Monday!

Thanks. It was actually a pretty fun day--things really felt great. In terms of T2, I'm not sure how much quicker it makes the lap, but I'd like to brake at or after the #3 marker-staying flat out until them. Unlike the CarboTechs XP-12s, the Pagid 19s only seem to work well on the first couple of laps. After that, no matter how hard I mashed the pedal, the car would not slow. It actually helped (read: forced) me to trail brake, which seemed to rotate the car very well. But I had the same problem into T5, T8a, and T11. With better brakes, I could stay on the power longer in all of them.

You do raise a good point, though. And that is, as times drop at these track day events, what do you do next? Do I modify the car, and try to go even faster? Or do I keep the car totally stock and try to match Pobts' 1:42--bascially overcoming the shortcommings of the car?
