Well like the title says.
For the past 6 years I've been racing auto-x locally, I keep getting 3rd fast time.
Except when its raining :-)
My car is stock on R888
The only rule we have is 180 tread wear and up in stock class
Everything under in super stock.
Its a small club and we like to keep it easy
The guys beating me are in modified ( 650+ HP ) cars , two C6 vetts and one M3 all on race tires
I'm usually 2nd or 3rd cause my car is a bit more consistent
It hasn't blown up lol.
I know there will be a bunch of people telling me to take race classes
I have and will take more, biggest problem is the nearest place for that is of 500 miles away
Other people will say don't worry about their times because they have different kinds of cars.... to you I say take a hike
losing suxs lol.
I'm looking to gain 2 seconds on a 60 second track.
I'm about a second and a half back most times.
Other then after a really big night out on the town when I had about 6 beer to many and I tried to auto-x the next day, I have hit about 1 cone for every 9 times out.
Back to my question...
If I buy a tire like the A6 can I expect a 2 second gain .... with out making any changes to my car, like I said ... I'm lazy
By the way the guy getting 4th is in a modified mini on race tires
He is less then a half second back most days.
On a side note we had the Corvette invitational race up here the last two years in a row.
Because I helped out I was able to run at lunch break, I was faster then all the stock Vetts and two of the six super stock vetts
I also got a chance to do two runs in a stock C6 Z06 with 505 HP after the event was done, I got fast time by 1/10
