Started off the day with a flat tire. Doh! Missed the first session and the Doghouse folks put in a plug (for free). So when I got on track in the second Red session it was ideal. I've been flirting with 22s for a while and here we are.Not bad for a stock power daily on softish Konis and lowering springs. Kinda lost my focus when the 22 hit the timer. You can faintly hear me urging it on. About 1.25 seconds off of theoretical time so more to be had. E.g. better in the rattlesnake twisties, later brake and more trail into Little Bend, later turn-in and a little more speed in Buzzards Neck and Big Bend, etc.
The 305 RS-4s are down a bit of grip vs the 315 Falken K+s but they are still great and are wearing very well. 6-piston Brembos rock. Had a lot of fun in later sessions chasing cars faster than I should have. Well, it was fun until the clutch went pow. The clutch disc spring retainer plate turned one spring loose (the other 3 were cracked too). After quite a bit of confusion (was advised shifter forks) and erratic behavior we put it on a buddies Miata trailer (yikes). Made it to Baca Diesel in Ft Worth by 5PM Monday. Got quick diagnosis and parts ordered that night. They knocked it out in a flash, and it was back together by 2-230 on Tuesday. Trying to accumulate break-in miles before next weeks TT on the 1.3.
As always a work in progress.
Once again, I screwed the GoPro video. Forgot to put the battery back in, so its spliced together dashcam video.
Similar lap (1.23.08) from inside the car later.
