All it took was 4 matching tires

Congrats Rami! Itís been a while in the making. Seems like your intentions are changing from years ago. Will be curious to hear of your new goals.

The car is perfect for me. I love driving it on any tires and any tire combinations.

The goal is now to keep the car reliable.

My main goal is to be a better driver and drive closer and closer to the limit. Continue to learn how to analyse data to understand post event what I did, set goals based on data, and try to meet those goals.

It is now time for my investment in 4-way shocks, potentiometers on all 4 corners, AIM logger that records car and driver in as much details as amature can have, to bear fruit.

I got the Lime Rock Club director to ride with me and coach me thru few laps and he was very happy with my driving. Recommmended few adjustment to T-3 which I worked on. Mainly working on a line involve rotating the car vs turning the car.

I am ready now for the fine details of driving reflected in tenths of a second.

And WGI goal is to go below 2:06, my PB from last year.

Two sequential laps sub 60sec at LRP

Rear Tires: 305/30/19 Corsa Asym 60tw from last year WGI, this year WGI, LRP. Still looking all right. Year 2020 discounted below $200/tire on Tire Rack.

Front tires: 285/30/19 Corsa Asym 60tw. Stickers, Heat Cycled by TR. Year 2020 discounted $200/tire on Tire Rack

The Corsa Asym current are $450/tire so not in my budget. But if I see them discounted I buy at least 4 at a time.

Truely impressive speeds on the downhill (T7). What's your aero set up?

I think you have another half second to gain by a) applying earlier throttle on exiting T2 and b) increasing maintenance throttle after T3 while you set up for T4. I try to never dip below 60mph in the same line your taking through T3. Good rotation on that turn or maybe it's the GoPro stabilizer. Congratulations.
