*ahem* that was literally Aidan's third or 4th lap in that car, having never driven it before. Stock MSM with intake and intercooler, stock ECU, FCMs, RS3's, Hawk HT10 pads.

Lols.

The only place I was getting my ABS to activate was into turn 2 sometimes, when I was going for #allofit braking force and wasn't quite square yet after the crest. Then the left front would activate a smidge.

No you misunderstand. I wasn't braking over the hill. I was coming into the braking zone sometimes still a little bit laterally loaded. I was far past the crest.

Lack of late braking into 2 was not losing me time. My line through 2 was probably costing me a second, second and a half. Need to hold it tighter than I was.
