Tires: Extreme VR2 R7 265/35/18 140TW Stickers
Best Lap: 2:14.5

I suppose this is more of an unofficial because there was entirely too much traffic within the run group. Predictive had me into the 2:14's multiple times but I could not finish a lap without getting stuck behind <2 cars. Confident that 2:13 is in the deck if I had an open road. Time to move over to Time Trials with NASA in 2019...

Time trial is so much fun despite less “track time”

I’ll update the times here this weekend...

Thanks, that is really good feedback. At this point, I would rather have more quality laps than greater sessions. Although it seems to be competitive within TT3 (at least in the NASA NE region) some heavy car development is needed, right?

Id have to read the rules over again but assuming your car fits in TT3 trim as is, I’d take a look at this year’s lap times to see how you compare. Hoosiers are a must though so be prepared to buy (and hopefully win) new tires every few weekends...

TTing is most folks get their best times in first few laps which is totally different from DE (waiting for trains to clear up or people pit out), so you really need to train yourself going balls to wall right as soon as your tires warm up!

Lap times updated as of Sept 29th. Here's me messing around at Monticello the other week in my stock M roadster on 3 year old PSS lol. I was easily 3 seconds slower than the last time I was there in my coupe, tires and safety gear make a huge difference... not to mention been away from track so long I found myself cruising at a lot of points... I'd have to tell myself "wtf get on the gas man!"

Sorry for bad angle, forgot to check where the camera was pointing...

Gaining more confidence, sliding in turns. About 40 heat cycles on these R888Rs, still grippy but slightly more slide.

I did see the coupe there! Didn't get a chance to talk to owner, he was running in Black group. I used to hit 160 often but it scares the daylights out of me. You'll see I lift early around 140-150 and just coast a bit. Doesn't gain my any laptime so why risk it

Yea I think he was running a low 1:33 but kept hitting traffic.

Weekend at Dominion. Running stock staggered setup with 235 Front and 265 Rear using RE71. Pushed a little harder to see what time I really put down.

Harry’s lap timer, which is available for both iPhone and Android. You can opt to use the phones camera or external such as GoPro, or even both if you want PiP. Here’s good example where I have a GoPro mounted behind me and the iPhone pointed at me:

Unfortunately with 40 cars packed onto this smaller track, there was way too much traffic to get more than this one clean lap in.

My R888R were at 50+ heat cycles, decided to run with my "rain tires" which were used only a few times this year. I have new found love for these Direzzas Last turn onto straight before Lap 9 had traffic. If I could have had my pace there, I think there was a 1:31 in it. We'll see next year!

Lap 9

I can still find places where more work is needed. Was getting bored out there after Afrim left, decided to find and chase the big boys when I could.

Great Driving and keeping up with that 911 RSR, Andre! Had a blast chasing you this weekend. Your car makes ridiculous power.

Track: NJMP Thunderbolt (No Chicane)
Car: Z4M Coupe
Tires: Heat Cycled Extreme Tyres VR2 R7 265 Squared
Time: 1:31:86


Shaking down new suspension and dialing it in. Definitely time on the table but good baseline for the season.




Track: NJMP Thunderbolt (with Chicane)
Car: Z4M Coupe
Tires: (End of Life) Extreme Tyres VR2 R7 265 Squared
Time: 1:36.87


Would have likely been faster in Lap 4 if not held up by traffic at the last corner. Tires at end of life and struggled for grip so was trying different lines as a result.
