  • Track Vehicle:The slow kind

Since nobody has this one going already, I'll start.

 

Time:  1:29.1

Car:  96 Nissan 240SX, (under)prepped for SCCA STU class.

Weight:  2680 w/ driver

HP:   150whp (estimated- 140k miles on stock engine w/ bolt-ons)

Tires:  BFG R1 225/45/17 front, R1-S 245/40/17 rear.

Weather:  Approx 55deg and windy

Notes:  Corded my good front tires on Friday practice and went to an old set of hard compound fronts to finish the weekend.  Car was understeering horribly, but I was able to make it turn with judicious application of throttle and steering after turn-in.  With better tires, would expect well into the 1:28s.


And just because I'm a shitty driver doesn't make a miata any less slow.

I drive slow as shit. LOL

geez, now I realize I drive slow everywhere. haha!

Here comes the excuses: The A6s had 3 weekends and 2 track records already on them. MSRH, MSRC, NOLA. AutoX tires in the heat don't work well after 2 hot laps and they had little grip to give to begin with. I was about 2 secs off the TTB TR.

The suspension setup on this car was a bit of a mess. Off-the-shelf Konis with GC coilovers. Never got a chance to work on the setup as the car was located in FL and I was in TX.

Yes, they're not bad. Not as fast as RR's I think, but need to benchmark them at TWS so I can compare data. I dig the contingency... the above time won me second place in TT (missed 1st place and a track record by .021 seconds!)

Interesting. I never found the RRs to be faster than NT01s, but I think I may have been doing it wrong or something. Did you feel they were faster?

I broke my back 6 weeks ago in a nasty 150mph shunt at RoadAtlanta (in this car) but raced this weekend with a back brace without too much trouble. This car is faster than I was capable of driving that weekend, but I'm still learning this track. You will see I'm too early entering Turn 4, so my lines should be ignored. Our best time here with NASA in 2013 was a 1:24.365, so we dropped nearly 3 seconds from last year. Won the TT3 class both days running against Porsche GT3 and 930, C5 Z06, Boss302 and more.

+ MSM Cams, buddy. Seriously, you killed it this weekend. We went back and forth on who had the best lap all weekend. I'll have fast lap and video this week at some point.

That sure is a nice looking red NA you're chasing Michael!  LOL.

 

Here was mine:

Track:  Hallett CCW

Date:  9/13/2014

Lap Time:  1:32.441 (Track Addict + XGPS150A 5Hz)

Car:  '95 Miata

Estimated Weight w/Driver:  ~2400

Estimated WHP:  ~135 (Original 1.8L + '99 Head + '01 Pistons + BP05 Cam + I/H/E)

Tires:  225/45R15 BFG Rivals on Advanti Storm 15x9 (rears flat-spotted)

Suspension:  Xida CS 700/400

Weather:  60s, Partly Sunny

 

I'm chasing Neal Bellamy for most of this.  Best lap is #6 starting around 7:50.

 

Unfortunately, I've got car issues.  The 4-2 downshift at Turn 2 bent some intake valves Friday, so I just dealt with it Saturday.  Car won't idle anymore without my foot massaging the gas and the compression test was sad (50-160-70-175).  Leakdown test confirmed the intake valve leakage.  Didn't even have to listen for it, I could feel the air coming through the throttle body.  So, time to redo the head -- maybe with some better valve springs this time.

 

Oh, and just to end on a high note, here's my Turn 1 off on the last session of the weekend (I had been a good boy up until this point):


Silver 90 1.6L Turbo Miata (Greddy + MSPNP, Cowl Induction, FCM) (Build Thread)
Red 95 1.8 Miata (949 Racing 95R Project Emulation) (Build Thread)
