Seems like the aftermarket ones have a much more limited lifespan than the originals.

Seems like confirmation bias

Err, nope. Don't have any weight available to load up my seat. This is just with fuel/ballast. The numbers also seem a bit lower than I remember them being following last alignment/corner blaance. Need to install my poly bushings and banish OEM rubber to the trash bin.

Missed the win by less than 2 tenths, dang. First time at Thunderhill and I'm already in love. NASA Texas can keep COTA, ain't no 130whp miata got time for that.

My fast lap during the Sunday morning Money Session was about 3 hundredths slower than this and SHOULD have been the lap to win it. Had an optimal of ~2:05.2 and threw most of it away in T14 being too conservative. The next lap after that was green, but both myself and the guy that ended up winning TT6 caught cooldown traffic. So who knows, I certainly had an opporuntiy to go faster, but he might have also been green. This lap (2nd session) was the optimal for the session, which shows how much slower the track already was. It took some heroics just to barely out pace the money session lap.

Super slow TT6 car with rusty and washed up driver at Gingerman:



3rd Sat/2nd Sun. Session two Sunday I reset the track record(that was set Saturday), but so did the eventual winner; Chris A.

This car is super simple.
73k mile 2001 base
Xida Gen 2 900/500
RB 1.125" front bar
SPM endlinks
OEM rear bar
OEM drivetrain, 100% stock from intake to muffler(4.3 torsen)
Hawk DTC60 w.OEM lines

It was 2480 the first time across the scales. By session two Sunday I had it down to 2411 with a partial interior gut and fuel burn.




Future plans include a header(just picked up a used RB) and exhaust, bucket seat, MSM rear bar, and some 9" wheels if it makes enough power to stay over 2400lbs. It will probably end up down around 4" front pinch to get enough camber. I'd like to get it to ~138 peak whp, -4* front camber and 2450lbs so that it replicates Sonny's car "Miller".

What's different about Gingerman since you set a 1:45:x a few years ago in PTE?
All car prep and driver?

90% car prep. Heavy, missing about 20 whp, missing a degree and a half of front camber, rubber bushings.
10% me not remembering how to drive T5/6 and 10b until session 2 day 2.

I started wrenching on this car the monday before the event. It will be a steady progression over the next two events and should be taking a win from a Chris soon.
