Robb,

I'm using whatever I can find in the left over tire pile, "I think" most of them are S01 ... but to be honest I haven't verified every set. I'm still trying to figure out the Yokohama A005, my used sets seem to vary a lot (assuming they are all S01s - pretty sure they are) and I think it has more to do with how much heat they got rather than just the number of heat cycles alone.

What's the lap delta between a new set of S01's vs. S04's?

Here is my full race 1 in-car (again sorry for the over exposure, tried to adjust post production with not much success):

Andy,

Buy 2 ... one for me, please.

Open class rules should mandate all cars within the class have a sequential tranny (as appears to be the case except for the Super Guac and Red Dragon ) and there should be a Lotus Cup USA subsidy ..... sort of like gov't assistance for oil companies and farmers. It's the American way .....

LFB is definitely the best way to race so much more control.
And here is this one...

robains Here is my same qual lap with telemetry overlay. Ignore the gear indicator, it's a calculated value and isn't very accurate.

Lotus Cup USA - ROUND 4 - Laguna Seca Qual Lap 3 with Data overlay - YouTube

lap 4 after this one was going to be a faster lap but I aborted it around T6 for some reason

Jack Video of my best lap of the Lotus Cup weekend set during qualifying for Sunday's race -- 1:35.49. It was a personal best and ~ a 2 second improvement over last year.

Due to traffic issues, I had to turn our 25 minute qualifying session into a 2 lap time trial with 6 minutes left in the session by re-griding myself and asking for space. It was actually a lot of fun having to perform under pressure with little time on the clock.....kind of F1 like.

Before Brent chimes in, let me say ..... I know, Brent, there's a good amount of easy time that I left on the table -- next time, I'll work on my "coasting" before braking, braking later for T-2, T-5 and T-8, and getting to gas a bit earlier in several places. Other than that, I just need to brake less for T-6, use all the track on exit and go FASTER everywhere. But for all that, everything was just great, right?

I'll also remember to clean the bug splatter off the camera lens next time too.
