MSR 1.7 Lap Times

Recommended Posts

No performance modifiers in any group.  It's all direct raw times.

That's different than last year. Brad has been pretty proud of balancing within the groups.

 

Now I feel your pain. I'm up against the Corvettes and 911s. LOL.

You and Skip just need to ditch the Mustang and NC and pick up a BRZ/FRS. The SSC class is a spec, standalone class so you're on perfectly equal footing. Or, you could come play in STX.

Hmmm.  One of my neighbors has a lightly wrecked FRS...

((Now if I could just figure out how to embed the video))

 

 

Well done! I like to use SM as a gauge of my laps (used to be a goal, but I've dropped into the 1:23's). SM was my favorite race to watch, unfortunately I was there with the Time Trials and we ran right after SM so we could only really watch the first half of the races.

 

To embed a video you just copy and paste the youtube link from the address bar, not the youtube share button (if you add &t=60s your videos will start at 60s or however many seconds you put).

Thoughts on the Penskes? Car is on rails, not seeing the usual nose dive and set :) great job Toby

Overall thumbs up!  Less sway on turn in, car feels more planted and level, doesn't "roll" to take a set, less nose-drive on braking.

For my driving style, I was dealing with understeer on entry and mid corner.  Tire pressures and rear sway bar adjustments helped, but I still felt like there was pace to be found in set-up.  Tire wear indicated the car could use more camber.

There was action behind me.  Up front, Trevor (McCallion) drove bobble free Sat / Sun and was never under any pressure from me (luckily Chris (Haldeman) was occupied with his Honda adventures.  Would have been very interesting to see what type of times he would have laid down)

 

(And thanks for the simple YT tip!)

Congrats! I was wondering how long Keith V's SM track record would stand.
