Listen man, I know you felt super clever typing out those paragraphs, but at the end of the day, you're the slow guy with a couple fast friends projecting your insecurities on a message board that about 5 people probably actively read.   I dont have anything to prove to you or anyone else here.   You made a wild claim that cannot be backed up, and you're slower than my street car around a race track in your gutted plastic barbie car, and thats about all i have to say about that. 

dang, you're so fucking cool man. I bet all the bitches flock to that knarley p car of yours. your dicks probably huge.

This was my first time to MSRC with this car.  I expect to dip into the 14's maybe 13s on fresh rubber and a few more laps of seat time. 



Is that the MXG 1.2?  This is really the first size comparison I've seen and I'm wanting to move to that setup on my cobra.

Members day at MSRC. Weather was great. So close to a 1:22, yet so far. Watching the video this was not a pretty lap. Big bend traffic at the beginning and end of the lap, and plenty of little mistakes on my part in between. Theoretical best from the day says there's a 1:19.8 in there, but that's a loooong way off. This does show that a 25 year old chassis can still hustle, if it only had a decent driver at the wheel.

And . . . just for the record . . . mine is bigger!  I'm talking about the car, of course.

Niiiice!   How was the body roll?   looks like about +10deg in any given corner?

It wasn't too bad really.  The car has massive anti-sway bars front and rear.  Somebody else suggested to shortcut the turns by driving over the curbing.  Don't think I would even feel MSR's curbs.  ?

Had fun at the SCCA event. 

Lap Time: 1:23.64 (AIM solo)
Ambient temperature: 60's and sunny
Car: 2009 Porsche Cayman S PDK
Weight with driver: 3100 lbs
Whp: 285 I think
Tires: Yokohama A052's 4 HC's

GoPro not functional

Was my first time ever running these tires, and took a little getting used to.  I was running in the high 1:25's the first few sessions.  The last couple of sessions I was down in the low 1:24's to high 1:23's.

What are your thoughts on them?

I do like them, but they wear out really really quick.  They remind of the RE71's I tried running a long time ago in regards to grip, but I think the RE71's seemed more responsive and I felt more connected to the road with them.  I'll probably eventually go back to the RS4's.  Just going to be too expensive to run these long term.

Lap Time: 1:22.05 (Garmin Catalyst)
Ambient temperature: 50 F
Car: 2009 Porsche Cayman S PDK
Weight with driver: 3100 lbs
Whp: 285 I think
Tires: Goodyear Supercar 3 (10 hc's)

Okay...   the Goodyear Supercar 3's are legit.  This is their 220 treadwear tire... it performed extremely well.  I like it much better than the Falken 615's and RS4's...  I actually think they feel better than the Yokohama's although the grip probably isn't as good.   I could have gotten in the 1:21's if I wouldn't have blown it in Big Bend.  🙂

Seems like Richochet and Boot Hill/Tombstone have a lot more grip than before. Hope to crack 1:15 soon!
