But good for a couple KPH. Based on my RPM I am hitting 225ish at the end of the straight.
What breaking marker are you guys using? Guess that's one of the many reasons I went off the track, pushing too hard I guess. I'm usually 230-235 by the end of the straight. Before the mods when I was comfortable in the car I hit 241 braking between marker 2 and 3. On Thursday night when I was not feeling it at all I was braking at 4 or before doing about 225.
Nice meeting some of you btw.... crappy night for me tho
I pretty much deserve the idiot award
