Just let it roll off your back. 👍
Oh my he drives it on the street like that?
That is awesome! Its cool you can actually squeeze the extra performance out of the new platform. It seems like a huge step up from the old BMW.Just broke the track record for GT2 class in my 997.1 by 1.6 seconds on scrubs at Palmer (unofficial). Track record for GT2 was set in September 2020 by a C6 @141.6. I did a 140.03 and the track record for GT1 (Transam Cars) is 139.8.
My predictive time adding in the best sectors from the Motec was 139.6 (Motec is a little dated but very functional, typical German software and hardware) It was 90+ degrees out, no cool suit or drink bottle, inside the cockpit was 110+ and remember there are windows in this thing as they are glued in and up. Worked on setting up the brake bias it was set at -.05 with a range of l +7 - -7 and I was most comfortable with +2 in the 4th session. Made zero suspension adjustments. Getting familiar with the brakes and acceleration /grip on exit as I have to relearn my driving style. Max braking pressure to lockup (no ABS) is 1000 PSI I was hitting 800 in the last 2 sessions. Shifting was much better, I started at 6/10's had 4 sessions and worked up to 8/10's. Did have a low speed off in T4 the ass end came around, I thought I had it saved but it was just to slippery with the heat which makes this section of the track greasy. I was a little miffed that I couldn't save it and only did a few more laps after that as it was just to hot and I was not pissing clear so that = mistakes.
Overall I could not believe the pace I was running at, I can't imagine what new tires and a cooler race day would bring, at least another 3 seconds and if everything goes right perhaps 4. Those are Formula Atlantic times which is insane to even be close to them.
It has been a long time since I've been this excited and I'm looking forward to my first race. Here is the new Wrap and times, the 139 is the best sector times the 140.03 is my best actual time.

Happy for you my friend. I look forward to seeing the car at Sebring again.Palmer clockwise - getting the car sorted. Finally got the aim to upload the flash and got the camera working. Palmer clockwise should be banned from the face of the earth- it just flat out sucks and has no flow.
I'm still using the old braking points from my E90M3.
Car is on 2 year old scrubs and it shows. Mission accomplished today. Aim smartcam working, brake bias sorted, Motec software downloaded and working on my track laptop. It's very robust, much more than the aim I'm used and I have loads of data points to select.
I'm going to keep it simple with RPM, Brake Bias, Oil temp, fuel pressure, engine temp, steering angle, track sector times. There is drive shaft rotation, yaw, you name it. The best part is you can break down the track into sectors (you select) and the system will put together a predictive lap based on times. You can see in what sectors you need to pick up the pace.
The system has very limited internal memory so you need to download after each session and upon arrival out in the lat/lon for the track. AIM is GPS configurable so this is something new. Data for days.
Video to follow. Oh - I LOVE THIS CAR.
Thanks Ray ! Moving up from T1 (SCCA) to GT2. Its going to be a ball running in that class behind the GT1 (Trans AM) cars. I hope to put on a good show.Happy for you my friend. I look forward to seeing the car at Sebring again.
