Just picked up a Chevy Corvette ZR1 (C6) '09 (Copper colour?).  After some tune (no supercharger), it feels like the car is riding on rails.  However, I would like a bit more oversteer at the S-bends exiting the tunnel. 

 

Do not really like the Viper even though I think that it has more torque.  I suspect that the Viper is a bit harder to tame than the 'Vette.

 

I think it is feasible to run sub 1:00 minute.  The best that I can do, with a lot of luck, is 1:02.5 (ABS = 1, All other aids = Turned off).

I just ran a 1:03.9 in the Z06, but I'm averaging 1:05's.  I originally wanted to use the Grand Sport, but it max's out around 100 h.p. less than the limit.  Smiley Happy

 

EDIT:  I wont have time to "break it in" so I'll probably have to adjust the engine limiter between races.

ice...don't forget that we are running the High Speed Ring in the reverse form.  The picture you showed in the normal anticlockwise format?

 

BTW, my 'Vette is still on zero miles/kms.  There will be a lot of HP adjustment between races.  Smiley Happy

Put one of your B-Spec guys (or four) in it and run the first Endurance race. That is what many do. Smiley Happy

I had a blast tonight.  Watching the replay now....and realised that the poor soul(s) behind me is constantly getting smoke bombed by me with tire smokes!
