Much better lap time! What are you running for suspension, alignment and wheel/tire sizes?@jdawson
Went back to Laguna yesterday with fresh tires, laptime dropped by 3.5 sec!
During the SIP I did the 2 pot conversion at the rear, removed ABS as and booster and installed a brake bias cage. Very different brake feel, took couple sessions to adjust. Still need to learn heel toe badly...
I’d probably loose time dropping an extra gear, plus the risk to upset the rear end without proper rev match.Also noted your are a gear higher than I am in a few corners such as T2 (3rd gear), T6 (4th gear) -- clearly you are carrying more speed but do you find dropping so low in the RPMs especially going up the back hill to the corkscrew is getting you out of the powerband?
I should try it your way for sure!
Thanks! I feel good about the progress! Car used to run in Lotus Cup production class by previous owner, which means solid track prep including FIA cage, good amount of weight reduction but drivetrain remains stock and aero improvement is minimal. The car can probably do a 1:40/1:41 in the current setup, I just have a lot to learn 😃Wow, great lap times! I think best I've done in my Elise at Laguna is around 1:51? I'm a slowpoke by comparison. Maybe next time I can get some pointers from you!
Car looks really nice, does it have a cage? Got more pics of the car?
