I'm in the same boat.
2a87. VANOS solenoids & carbon buildup. I usually get in trouble trying to follow a handful of (faster) P-cars. This time around it was an RS. I was able to finish entire 25min sessions with the same settings and same ambient provided I'm ahead of the pack/not following anybody. Quite frustrating if you ask me...
