Silver is starting to look better than bronze to me:


Looking meaty:

Sometimes I wonder what the world would be like if we didn't have 6ULs. It's a dark place, and I don't want to go there.

What class and what sort of lap times?


Great to hear the Green Glory Hole has returned to crushing.

True. Although I'm currently working on a different option.

TTD. 2:03.6 was the best time outside of the last session when I thought I blew up the car and went off track, cancelling the 2:02. I will get it next time, sub 2:00 on Hoosiers. There's also some time left on the table in #1-2 which is similar to 8-9 at Willow Springs, but probably a little more technical but the track is elevated over the run-off so it's much scarier. I figured out #6 a bit better but couldn't ever get my entry right on #5 to get down onto the apex paint of #6 to really hook it; I played with turn-in entry point, YAW, speed, and brake release all day. Next time I'll slam it. My car had shockingly fast closing rates in braking on 3, 4 6, 8-9, 10 (big time), and "Larry". I'm really proud of this car's set-up and I pretty much owe it all to AST, TSE, and 949. I was running down more than one TTB and TT3 car in several places on the track, cars which podium in their class.

Good work, man. The VVT setup is so much fun (and reliable).

Are you running bigger brakes or just a prop valve?

TSE 11.75" front brakes, Sport rears, DTC-60 all the way around, ducting on the fronts, Sport master and booster, Wilwood prop valve. The car is shockingly good on brakes, that's where it makes-up all the time.

Living the dream.

(I want to justify the TSE kit, but I'm not going to do $20k worth of DEs next year haha)

You don't have to. It's a shitload of points and probably doesn't make the most sense from a points perspective, but the brakes on this car are epic and I fell like I'm doing wild **** on trail braking because of it.

I'm still on the original rotors in the front and I'm on my 3rd box of front pads. I raced this car about 8 weekends with these brakes at 250whp, then I've done 3-years of 15-20 track days and weekends per year. The front brakes last almost 3x as long as the rears, and I run a ton of rear brake pressure. Buy them.

Nice, Hustler. What class was the FRS/BRZ in? Any idea on his lap times?

E, not sure since the list is not up yet. When he and I both switch to R6, we'll have a damn good run for the money. He's a super-good driver too. He makes a ton more HP than me, less grip though. That car already has KWs, camber plates, tubular control arms.

You are still on your first rotors? Wow. I just had to replace my first set, they went about 800 track miles. Wasn't wear, I noticed small thermal cracking on the inner edge of the rotor.

I was re-reading this, are you using the sport rear caliper or just the M-Tuned kit?

I require an e-brake. I also don't see much reason to do this without a vented rotor.

Also, cars are dumb, bicycles rule.
