I'm Jason... Jeff is in the garage next to me (we have basically identical SpecRaceAtoms), and is still a second or so quicker than me. Doing my best to catch up!

MSR- 1.7 CCW, temp in the low 90s and breezy

Date- 07/13/19

2016 BRZ, 183 avg hp

Weight with driver- 2,725

Tire - Maxxis RC1, 255/40/17, half used up.

No video because I suck at packing and preparation (forgot the go pro), but I'll add a pic of the Aim screen when I get a chance.  

Edit : BAM!!

Now i need to look at the data and see where that one was made better than the rest...I'm suspicious that it was that one realllyyy clean traffic free lap I got...

That's cooking man! My best lap of the day Sunday was the same...1:24.598

Except I have over 200 HP more on pretty new NT01s 🙂

Thanks man - and hey Quick is Quick regardless of the car or tires, and yours was faster - nice work Jose :good:!!!

I'm getting a couple sets of rich-people-cast-off-race-slicks to try out soon - excited to see how much faster they are than the 100tw RC1s I love so much. I also hear that NT01s are better than my RC1s in the heat...might have to try those too!

MSR-C 1.7 CCW
Date:  7/13/2019
Lap time: 1:24.83 (AIM)
Car: 1995 BMW M3
Vehicle weight with driver: ~2900 lbs
Wheel horsepower: ~250
Tires:  245/40-17 RE-71R
Estimated ambient temperature: 90 degrees

 

1/100th faster than my best going the other direction on these same tires. Race studio says there's 2.5 seconds out there with my current splits, but I'm not going to find it on these tires. It feels like the grip really drops by lap 6-7. By lap 9 it's pretty greasy, especially in this heat. But it takes me time to get comfortable with everything again. The car wants the fast laps early, but I feel more in the groove later. With speed differences on warm up laps, records are going to be hard to set in HPDE.

FTFY- Sounds about right, RE71s do this 😉

Yeah, you're right. Nothing surprising there at all, I am not the first person to discover this behavior.

@joesurf79, I saw you coming off track several time when I was sitting on the grid (sometimes with a grill full of grass). I wanted to come by and say hi but I think you were busy with instructor stuff.

YUP :) - went off both days chasing the stupid predicted lap in the 23's. I'd see it on the AIM and get all excited and psyche myself out...And the grill was only half full of grass - the other half was full of poor helpless crickets and other assorted bugs. I swear I picked a dozen from the mesh each day!

Next time come say Hi man.  Busy is right. It's the most work you can do for "free track time", but the people make it worth it, so yell at me next time :) !

Perfect time trial tires! Once I go through these remaining NT01s, I'm switching to Rival 1.5 to see what all the fuss is about and see if they actually do last forever. Would be awesome to only need maybe 2 sets per season..plus they'd be a bit cheaper for me.

Really good driving man! If you can manage to get at the front of the pack, you should stay there with little to no traffic for a good 5 or 6 laps with your lap times.

I'm looking forward to getting past August and this heat, but I'd take it over rain any day.

MSR-C 1.7 CCW
Date: 9/21/19
Lap time: 1:22.46 (AIM) & Transponder loop
Car: 2014 Mustang GT, daily driver mild
Total vehicle weight with driver: 3935 lbs
Wheel horsepower: 365-385 est
Tire size and model: 305/30/18 Hankook RS-4s
Estimated ambient temperature: 81 degrees, sunny

 

I was pleasantly surprised to set a PB this morning. Bodes well for cooler weather.  I am pretty proud of this lap. A few bobbles, but its kind of how that goes when you are really hustling the car. I'm still fighting going one-handed when its fast hands time catching the car and could be smoother, but am super happy to be making progress in Ricochet.

As always, a work in progress.

That's impressive, I thought the surface was slick all day (even in the morning). I think you'll find more time in October (21's for sure). Way to go Joe!

Thanks.

I only found pace in first session when it was coolest and overcast. The Mustang is VERY temperature dependent. I ran 3 low 23s and pushed one really hard for this lap. I dorked the 2nd session, apparently didn't get the sub belts latched in right. Weird. I noticed it immediately on track but could not get it clicked in on the warmup lap and had to pit out. I tried to come on track clear of the pack, but I swallowed up the backmarkers when temps and pressures were right. By the time I got clear, temps and pressures were too high and it was a greasy slow drive. Ran 3 laps on top of each other but only in the low 24s. Had my shit together after lunch, but it was waaaaaay too hot at that point to do any good.

Estimated total vehicle weight with driver: 2900
Estimated wheel horsepower: 250
Tire size and model: 255/40/17 RS4
Estimated ambient temperature: 40's

Fist Saturday session with TDE. I expected to be able to drop more time over the weekend as the track warmed up, but no joy. I came within two 1/100th of this later that day, and a bunch of low 1:24s, but couldn't beat it. I have to say I'm pretty happy with these tires. They don't fall off like the RE-71s did. I think I can find a little more time with suspension, still fighting a little under steer in long right handers (of which there are a few in this track config, ha).

MSR-C 1.7 CCW

Lap time: 1:23.0 (AIM Solo2)
Car: 2014 Subaru BRZ
Total vehicle weight with driver: ~2900 lbs w/ driver 
Wheel horsepower: 178WHP 
Tires:  255/40-17 Hankook RS4
Estimated ambient temperature: 45 degrees, windy

New year, new PB. Now I have to get in the 1:22's. I had a 1:22.x going in a later session but coming out of Big Bend I got fuel starve just before the finish and watched it all disappear. Just means I'll have to go back. I was watching my Aim to see if I was in the 1:22's and missed the braking zone for the next lap, I kept it on track but kind or a silly mistake to make.

Nice job Sam.  I was really happy with the a 23.1 on the S007s. Weather was so fast. Sure was missing my RS-4s

Thanks! I'm thinking about buying 2 sets of RS4's and keeping a spare set just to make sure to have enough. It's pretty silly that they are unavailable for half the year.

Nice lap Sam!  Total no drama lap (start of next lap OTOH . . .🤣 ). You’re starting to make it look a lot easier than it really is.

 

I got a handful of high 1.23 laps yesterday, but never could get into the lower half.  Good to see you and Joe powering thru.
