My friend with a c5z was at LS with his performancebox on the same day as me and I thought it would be interesting to compare speed vs distance on our best laps.
His setup (blue line):
Long tubes with tune.
Crazy wide CCW wheels with hoosier slicks
Driver mod. He's definitely a better driver than me.
My setup (red line):
97 2554r on stock 1.8L with busted studs.
The car was setup to do 14-15psi, but I was only seeing 11 in this session. ~190-200 whp.
FCM Bilsteins 500/325
15x9 6ULs w/ nt01s
I had to pick a common start/finish point so I picked the one that favored him. If you move the point back to turn 1 his time goes up to 1:40.X and I'm doing a 1:44.9. It was hard for both of us to get a clean lap. From watching his videos I can see he is doing a better job of using the whole track.
- His acceleration is significantly better than mine. No surprise there.
- He's getting on the gas a lot sooner in a few of the turn exits.
- I'm a complete wimp in 6.
- Something is funny with his data in 9. He didn't slow down that much after the corkscrew.
Anyways, I thought it was a fun comparison and shows me what areas to improve the next time I go to the track. There's also acceleration data that I can graph if anyone is interested.
