NOLA Lap Times 2.75 mi CW

Recommended Posts

Not sure why this thread is not here yet but I'll start...

 

Date: May 4, 2013 (NASA Time Trials)

Lap Time: 1:52.897 (AMB Transponder - NASA timing)

 

Car: 1994 Miata with LS1 V8

Weight with driver: 2650 lbs (weighed on tire scales)

WHP: 270 (using throttle stop for TT3 compliance)

Tires: Hoosier 275/35-15 A6 on 949 15x10 wheels

Ambient temperature: 75F

 

This is my best lap at NOLA and was good enough for 2nd place in TT3 and 3rd place overall. IIRC this is 7 seconds under NASA Spec Miata qualifying, same track, same day. Could have (shoulda woulda) dropped at least one more second on Sunday (track was faster) if my front right wheel bearing had not crapped out on me. I'll be carrying spare front hubs to the track from now on.

 

Sadly this is probably the last race I will run in the current chassis. I am going to focus on finishing the new chassis (NB LS1 Miata) and racing it from now on. Fast as shit 1994 LS1 Miata for sale. Hurry before I part it out.

Time:  1:58.9 in qual, 1:59.3 during the race

Car: '96 Nissan 240SX

Weight:  2680 w/ driver

HP:  approx 150whp.

Tires:   BFG R1, approx 4 yrs old.

 

if I had a bit more front grip, I could take the twisties in the back completely flat and shave another second or so.  I was only able to take it flat a couple times on Sat Friday during qualifying, but we had a headwind that was slowing me down.   During the races, I had a tailwind on that section and was hitting the rev limit in 4th before making the first right into the esses, and then the car pushed all the way through due to the old tires.  There's easily a mid 1:56 out there with this car..

Second race weekend in the car, so I've had about 3 hrs behind the wheel of the car in total.  There's room on the table both in car/chassis setup and driving.  I was over-braking in 1,5,8, and 13 and turning in too early for 6 all weekend.  definitely a couple seconds left.   Matt Reynolds set a new track record for the class with a 1.51.9, so I'm not too far off a world-class E Prod effort (assuming he wasnt sandbagging)

What car was he driving? 1:51s a solid time. I'm assuming around 10.5 pwr/wt ratio?

He was in a '99 Miata- VERY built engine w/ Jerico tranny.  don't know much else about it other than it's currently the fastest E Prod car in the country, let alone an EP Miata.

How are you running TT1 with a Radical SR3?. They normally run in SU/TTU within NASA CCR.

I thought the same originally. I did the calculator however and the results where 5.675 vs 5.50 and below for TTU. So I called for help to find out if I was screwing up the calculator - common mistakes they noted were listing BHP instead of WHP (Radical SR3 is 265 BHP but only 210 WHP). Be happy to send you my calculator to compare notes.

 

 

EDITED:

DOH!: My friend just called - I forgot to check the boxes in the excel! It's 4.857 :(

For any TT# or ST# class, you have to submit a valid dyno sheet along with your classification form in order to be compliant and run.

 

Yes, its HP measured at the wheels. Your competition weight is your car with you in it and all your gear (weight measured and verified coming off a session onto the scales).

 

The thing with Radicals is that you also have to take modifier hits from your ratio such as but not limited to:

 

-2.0 for being under 1800lbs

-.7 for non DOT tires

-.2 for sequential trans (if applicable)

-.4 for non production vehicle

 

Adding that up already equals a -3.3 hit from your ratio. So for example if your raw ratio was 5.675, you minus 3.3 from that and your looking at a 2.35 ratio with modifiers which is well under the 5.5 for TT1/ST1.

 

I'm leaving out some modifiers that you can add to your ratio like +.3 for 241mm or smaller non DOT tire and +.7 for engines less than 1.9L but even adding those back in, still puts you under 5.5 for TT1.

 

That's why I was very surprised to see SR3 Rads running ST1/TT1, there is a lot of detuning and adding ballast and much more involved to squeeze down to TT1/ST1.
