Re: GT1 Series: Season 1, One Make-Lexus IS F RM Starts July 8@5:00pst.

Jul 14, 2012

I ran a 1:36.1 yesterday in practice with SRF on. My best time without SRF was a 1:37.6. So it's safe to say that SRF will net about 1.5 seconds per lap around this track. Plus, it's seems like it's a little easier on the tires with it on. I hope to break into the 35's by qualifying tomorrow evening.

If two eyes are better than one, then I guess I’m S#!T outta luck!

Safe to say I won't be fighting for pole tomorrow.  I have spent some time this afternoon and I am no where close to 1:35 or 1:36s.  I am sure the setup is part of it, but I have never run well at this track.  Probably one of my least favorites.

here's some basic tips: 

 

drop rear toe to -1, set camber in the front to no more than 1.8 set spring rates to 9.5 front and 9 in the rear. set the dampers to 6 all around and set body roll bars to 3 front 4 rear. This might help a little bit if anyone wants to try it. Also, don't use all the downforce in the rear. Only use about 35 in the rear. If you use too much it wont let the back end turn...and lastly, Keep practicing...Man Happy

Thanks One_Eyed. I will try it as soon as I have a change. Hopefully before the QT.

Good race guys, grats to Tuna. This kind of series separates the contenders from pretenders. I gotta work on my game to be a contender. Good race guys.
