Sounds good, I do know some of the limitations on many of those just from Instructing in NASA and our experiences with the Motorsports Division ( which though it was shut down while we opened our Bentley Store , is getting back in gear ). Be interesting to hear your views on the S550 , as weight often has a lot to do with how appropriate a tire is for each car. There are getting to be some big advantages , price wise, with some of the tires made in the US, as the tariff war and strong dollar has affected the cost of many imports.

Small update. Went back to Thunderhill and knocked a couple seconds off the 3 mile! Also got to run the 5 mile day two, but the AIM didn't pick it up correctly :/

THUNDERHILL 3MILE BYPASS
1:58.1

Well..improved my previous PB by 7 second..while Dial in my coilovers ( yes I finally have coilovers !!) .It was a good day with my friends of ONGRID. With tons of traffic on turn 1 and 15mph less speed than my second best lap, I was able to make this 1:58 .Data says 1.56 is not far( i lost 1 second only in the first 20 second of the lap ) but this is great as second time here . JRi CORTEX Coilovers showed big potential but I need to dial in the rear. the new Engine tune push my 4000lbs car to 138mph on the straight! as always RACERS360 will analyze it soon!
Car weight minimum :3989 lbs with me and half tank
MODS tires: 295 yoko A052 engine tune :
Palm Beach Dyno
Suspension : CORTEX JRi

Still a little unstable om the rear in braking with car going little left right..(but maybe too much toe out)
And little understeer in high speed cornering.
But car is planted.
I will see what i can do in buttonwillow next. I have data there. Or again Thill for direct comparison.
Byron not sure about sonoma. If it doesn't rain probably march 14-15 for TT NASA.
Otherwise autoclub speedway.

Ben, I just want a soundtrack of the GT4 to play in my truck while driving --- this is true music to one's ears, ha!!
Bill this is one of the multiple time Ben passed me :)
But i love the sound. You can here the sound of the gearbox from inside my car too at 120.
Amazing

Been a while, GT/mild mods/305 RS-4s

EAGLES CANYON 2.0 (Omagerd the new surface is wonderful)
1.65 CCW 1.18.788 Holy hell turn 5 will take your breath away. Track is evolving so this time will not stand.

MOTORSPORT RANCH CRESSON (CW 1.7)
1:25.878 So much more to be had. I swear I'll put a real lap together.

MOTORSPORT RANCH CRESSON (CCW 1.7)
1.22.461.Pretty proud of this lap. Didn't expect to get a PB on this warm of a day. Not classically pretty, but definitely hustling the big girl.



MOTORSPORT RANCH (CCW 3.1)
Love this track. So many corners to put together.
2:26.988

and on the much unloved Bridgestone S-007As:
EAGLES CANYON 2.0 2.7mile full course "Italian Canyon" the 6-7-8-9-10 is frickin awesome!!!
2:13.0

As always, a work in progress.

Sorry for windy audio and the wrong track map, still having some growing pains with the AiM. Any Smartycam microphone suggestions out there? Also, is there a better way to host this or is it fine linking to my google drive?

This was my first time using the AiM so that's what's happening with the layout and data.

GoPro video quality is better than the AiM but both microphones seem to have trouble with wind noise. The video quality may default to a lower setting but it can be toggled up to 1080p. This was my first time at VIR, which may be obvious if look at my line through Oak Tree, but hoping to return this year. Note: the other two mustangs were with me and we weren't harassing each other even if it may look like it.

El Stangtuga,

Thanks for proving the rumors are true , that Eagles Canyon is now as smooth as a babies buttuci ! Plenty of friends told me about it , raving as you have, but no one posted a darn thing. Thanks to you I can see why the excitement is back at that track. You are definitely the Texas Track Tortuga , though I think after watching you have come out of your shell and are more of a torpedo , especially at Cresson --- nice run at 1:22!!

Okay , Flyhalf, not sure how I missed your measly 7 second improvement at Thunderhill, man I just expected more from you ,ha,ha. Killer improvement and you had to be stoked after that, and for those folks wondering , how did the Yokes hold up? Are you running a 18x10 , as figured you could go to 315/18 with the A052.

How were those tires? I know they had a drift compound; I assume these are not that compound! I have a friend in a Miata considering those tires but I don't know much about them.
