I haven't even sat down and read everything about it but if you hook at the track not sure how it will help you. Someone that is hit or miss then it may have to be looked into further.

My thoughts also. I am cutting 1.50 -1.53 60' with a full weight cat on stock power with stock 2.62 gears. I don't think any more can be gained without adding power or losing weight. Now if I went to some of the other tracks around me this may help.

Paladin, have you seen anything quantitative that you can post on the street? Times, greater speeds in a given area, etc?

Great write ups folks.

Let me help. It is tough for anyone to believe opinions or subjective stuff. What I have been saying is the difference is rather subtle. I had our marketing people do this yesterday. Sorry, he did not at least put a sound track on it. He did such a good and fast job, I did not want to go back for re-work.

Anyway, bottom- best lap last year, this car.

Top, best lap this year this car, the DS unit was the difference.

I keep talking about and they keep talking about stability and it’s ability to keep the ride reasonably soft and forgiving unless challenged. Most of the lap shows rather similar data in the corners. However, the most dangerous and most technically challenging is the potentially high speeds and potential of gaining time in what is called the Kink and IMO the semi straight track that follows, encased by walls on each side. Just prior to that is the legendary chicane. The differences for me begin in the Chicane, through the Kink and beyond. It is a bit of a driver preference on corner entry speeds, yes. But you need the confidence in your car to push it a bit. It’s all good but at about 1:35 the difference I am talking about becomes apparent. Plus on the lap last year, I see I let it rip into the Kink, only to hit the brakes and be timid after that v. this year where the speed is more smooth followed by INCREASING speeds OUT of the Kink. The result was getting down to Canada corner much quicker. That segment displays what I have been trying to say with regard to this item.
