-1.40 G's around turn 9 at Big Willow (not a banked turn). I'm sure you can get much higher G forces on a banked turn. This was lateral G's as measured on my P-Box. I was on stock suspension with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires 255F and 275R.

I'm sure 1.4 is paltry compared to guys with dialed in suspension, squared set ups and race tires.

I have never measured, but I had to comment on the use of the word "whilst" in the title. Solid.

first day on them and im like a pig in shit. picked up 1.2 seconds over last week on ad08s and conditions were slightly worse today. think they are good for about what people say 1 second per minute of lap time. set new personal best lap time for second week in a row.

^ That's a good peak number, I'm assuming there is an up hill corner or one at the bottom of a hill to create that much load. Cool steering wheel too by the way.

Around 3.0

Roughly 2.0 peak in the M3, on slicks, according to my GPS app.

I think that's about as much as I've seen on my AD08's as well.

Wow! Those are some high numbers.

I've only reach 1.2 on stock 18" & PS2s (BMW Performance Steering Wheel) . Never track.......YET.

Does using elevation change and camber affect "lateral" G's differently? I know as an extreme example at Daytona, the banking provides a downward G as well as lateral. Cars not setup for banking can blow tires by exceeding the load rating for the tire....think inside of low profile rear tires in Porsches.

Technically no (although banking allows you to pull more lat g's), but many G meters don't distinguish and kind of just tell you max "total" g's, including accel/decel.

i would think an accelerometer would differntiate as it is indicating different vector lines. lateral, acceleration, deceleration and such. downforce or load due to banking should be registered in a different vector and not count? my highest gs are on a downhill slow corner where i use quick hands and is slightly canted in my favor.
