Sleeper do I see 2:10 at VIR now You are getting faster and faster.... Any mods since last year (met you in March at Road ATL super cold DE)? Am stock suspended. No mods in over a year and intend that way. Look forward to Road ATL in Sept with PTree.

OP, I was at Mid Ohio this past weekend with CCA. 2nd time around, was able to run 1:43.4 solo, 1:43.9 with a student.

Need to edit video and post with data overlay (shortly, need to learn how to using RaceRender 3 as I use Performance Box with Go Pro).

I would have been content with 44-45 but after watching your video I was a bit annoyed with my times and decided to push

Your times are brilliant on stock tires. Crazy...

Mods compared to yours: 18*10 Toyo RR 275s and Ground Control Camber Plates to -2.5. Other stock like yours with DCT.

Loved that track.

Cheers,

Lutfy

Am getting coached to get the data overlay with video. Have raw data and PROMISE to put it on within the next 2 weeks (at the latest) to validate my claim

Ended up ordering front only H&R bar (per Richbot) Car howls a lot at tighter turns and I really abuse the front tires video will tell.

Thinking of doing PCA Watkins Glen June 22nd weekend if any of you boys are up for it.

I use dashware and it works great. You may want to give it a try, if you have any questions with it i can help.

Thanks! I am trying to get adjusted with Performance Tools and then mapping it on Race Render.

Organizing which run (dang Performancebox didn't date stamp it) is going to be a challenge. Here are 2 comparison runs between 2 sessions. One on PF08 (almost burnt) and then post lunch on new set of PF11 pads.

Had more confidence and slightly quicker with the bite but I don't think it was worth the cost (as it turned to dust) especially in a DE environment. Given I am an amateur there may be no direct correlation anyways.

I feel better posting as it removes doubt of me being some bench racer or a forum troll



Tallied up my gas till. 120 gallons to and from DC to Mid Ohio and back over the weekend. Cannot post that on FB for sure.

Will get the video up with data shortly and post.

Cheers,

Lutfy

Personal best for me...I need better tires (255 direzza zii). I think 275 square nt01 will be worth 2+ seconds. Too bad driver mod is not as easy.

And, thanks for posting a video that shows your hands. It made for an engaging viewer-experience. I felt like I was riding in your passenger seat!

It's such an awesome track. I am relatively inexperienced, but it is honestly one of my favorite places in the world to be. Just can't get enough of it and I can't stop thinking about going back.

This is an amazing group to run with, fast, no-BS, and safe. September 29th - come on out, I'll be there. You will get at least a couple hours of track time in, last time I was with them there was so much track time that we skipped our last run group.

I may give that a look...usually when I go to a new track I like the whole weekend. Day 1 to learn, day 2 to push...

I know what you mean, but if it's anything like last time I ran there is so much track time you can learn well in a day. Also, I found this useful my first time (plus playing it on iracing) http://www.scottgood.com/jsg/blog.nsf/2/SGOD-8X9R5C/$File/FastWayAroundMidOhio.pdf

Just a bump on this if anyone wants to come out and play. Right now there are only 4 cars in Advanced, 8 in Intermediate, and 2 in Novice.

It's basically like a private track rental! There will be a ridiculous amount of track time.
