I feel i can easily gain a few seconds just by practice.. without adding NT01s ..
braking should be to turn in or beyond(trailbraking). the fact that you run your fastest lap while missing apexes and having to slow at the front straight for traffic tells me you are already close to 1:39. dont think about an entire good lap, do each section as a seperate thing. dont try to go fast try to drive well and when you start doing each little section right, braking, turn in and set, apex and exit then a whole lap will come together that will probably shock you. i feel like for me now my brakes and suspension are holding me from doing more but I need lots of work too. baby steps.
