Parts list for the B-spec cars will be put up tonight!!

If anyone is going to be on tonight, it'd be cool to get a second opinion on a few things.

Should be great time! I'm thinking average lap-times in the low 1:41s/1:42s. Having different cars will throw in a different dynamic. The Fiesta and 2 are lighter, but the Honda has more power and has less drag. The 2 also has more torque! I hope we have a good turnout!

Damn superbowl, totally forgot. I'm still running it anyways, if there's a low turnout we can keep the same cars and run a different track.

1.44:2xx so far. Gear ratios need a little more work though. I'm also about 25lbs heavier than minimum spec, despite all upgrades and light wheels.

I've ended up with a 4.30 FD ratio on my 2, might make it even a bit shorter as I don't think I'm topping out on the long straight even on an empty track.

I'm surprised at how this car handles, tail steps out nicely if you tap the brakes entering the corner.

Got my time down to 1:47.8

Hrmm, I managed a 1:41.7 with the 2, a high 1:42 in the Fit, and I won't give away my time with the Ford.

TPM give me a range of your times, cause I might of missed some parts if no one is getting close to my times, lol.

BTW don't pay attention to the suggested braking points they give you. I definitely don't use them.

Don't spend too much time figuring out why I'm slow...I'm just slow. Unless of course everyone else is slow too.

Adjusting the gearing and using the hot lap ghost to cut my lap time down a good bit last night, from 1:50ish to just under 1:47.

Is everyone else using a manual transmission? Does it make a big difference?
