Photos from Laguna Seca on April 21st

Just having a little fun!

Hotchkis Anti-Roll bars work flawlessly! Body roll is reduced and turn-in response improved.

We need to get some of you out there for the next event!

Was at Buttonwillow last year when it was 112F and no issues.

I had slight issues at Thunderhill last year when it was only about 85 degrees out. I got up to 285 degrees..but then took it back a few notches. It may be how we differ in driving styles...I tend to downshift a lot.

Ok, the million dollar question:

How did it change your laptimes?

It's ok to say that it didn't affect your laptimes but made the car feel better (which could, in theory, result in more consistent laptimes), but I want to know the down and dirty.

I presume you've been to Laguna enough that you are within 1/2 second on each lap, all else equal.

Not to derail, but was 285 with your Castrol TWS 10w60? I want to try that this summer, but only if it helps out.

No time was taken this time out. The car felt better, but I doubt it is much faster.

My car says your car talks about you to other e9x's behind your back.

(and I am overheating free during track days so far too ....um, but no ambient temperatures over 74 degrees yet on track days)

Once one turn is down to 2nd gear. The rest are 3rd and 4th gear at Laguna Seca.
