I like 7:15 hehe
Yea, there is lots left in the car, just the tires are weak at this point. I just got some R Rated tires and will be back on Sept 3. Temps at Monterey are normally around 60f, so it's a great "cool" place to race. I'm hitting Turn 6 much better now. That is a scary turn to trust in your car, if the tires break, you are going in the barrier. Before I was hitting it around 60, now I can let off the gas around 75 and then hit the gas to accelerate to shift the weight back and hit the dip over 70. I really want to hit turn 6 over 75, preferably 80 when I can get the grip and cajones.Lateral Gs as high as 1.33 on the uphill turn 6 and 1.24 on the off camber turn 9 is nothing to scoff at handling wise!!! And you've broken the 1:50 barrier now.
I was running some roads in my Porsche up near Shasta Saturday and saw air temps to 120F (oil temps to 250). A Boxster I was with had to slow down as his water temperature gauge began to complain.
If Laguna Seca was anything like that, over heating can be forgiven.
Congrats on what looks like a good day.
Nice driving! limp mode kicked in at the WORST possible place. I'd have had a red face the whole lap hanging my left arm out the window for the entire last lap...
How do you feel about your turn 6? Also, are you in manual mode? I only downshifted to 2nd (sport mode) on turn 11, and see now why I may have been sluggish coming out onto the straightaway? The car takes FOREVER to put power to the wheels if you mash the gas at 40 MPH straight out of super hard braking....
Sorry to hear that Jimbo. I'm surprised how hard it's become to find an AWD dyno in the Bay Area. There used to be more options. Maybe try contacting Speed Element in San Jose. The owner, Devin, is a good guy and won't BS you. I'm hoping he'll be at least curious to see what your AMG puts down at the wheels.They said they WON'T do anything but Subraru. No one else has a Norcal AWD Dyno that I can find.
