Thanks. The big girl and I have a longstanding relationship so we are starting to know our limits. :) I strive for tires singing a consistent note. Maybe someday ;) Boy Howdy, are they vocal @ ECR,

No quarter is right. I'm in "kill all tires" mode. Or at least kill the unloved Bridgestones. F 'em. I'm VERY excited to get off of the S007s, they are very difficult to manage in the trail braking transitions especially. Slower and trickier to drive than RS-4s. I've had to be much more conservative which sucks as I was kind of coming to grips with how to use more corner and less brakes to slow down.  They have served their purpose and bridged the gap to 2020 tires. I came home Saturday to 6 brand new RS-4s on my front doorstep. RS-4s are faster, much more forgiving, and more durable too. I've effectively got 2 sets stacked in my son's bedroom ready to go. WIN-WIN-WIN. 

Now to get the clutch healthy, CVD-19 and oil prices where they need to be, and more liquidity in my finances. That's all I need and its GAME ON. Probably will have to just settle for healthy clutch before I'm jump back in the game. As always a work in progress, in all aspects of my life.

Went out with my neighbor in his Spec E46 last Sunday for it's first track day after build.  We chased understeer the entire morning and never got it sorted.  The rear seems too low and was chewing the outside of the RRs pretty badly.  Raising the rear and swapping out the rear bar.

The car should turn 2:15s give or take with someone terrible like myself behind the wheel.

Never got around to rendering my data + footage from back in february, figured now would be the time since I guess while it's hot my car is completely different (my best during time trial nationals was a 2:17.8xx). Can't wait for the temps to go down so I can go back to enjoying my car 😛

As always, tips appreciated, if there's anywhere I can approve, i'd love to hear it.

Track: Eagles Canyon Raceway 2.0 "The Canyon" 1.65  CLOCKWISE - Sep 7, 2020

Lap Time: 1.22.747 (Aim Solo)

Ambient temperature: 80-95, Sunny, 

Car: 2014 Mustang GT

Estimated weight with driver: 3935 lbs

Estimated whp: 365-385 HP???

Tires: Hankook RS-4s 305/30/19

First time Clockwise at pace and it did not disappoint. Fast, technical, and thrilling. It will definitely reward or punish you as you get it right or wrong. Here is my (1st session) starting point:

This lap from a later session is better driving, but warmer conditions are considerably worse so lap was just a tick slower (1.22.759).

Its a good starting point for me, but a long laundry list to work on.
