    I think Jack just has lots of balls and his car tuned to have ALOT of mechanical grip. His front straight away speeds is 130mph tops. He carries tons more speed and is able to hold a high min speed in the turns than other people and that it makes up for his lack of power. The lower weight also helps in his cornering speed and how late he can brake. He is driving it like a momentum car like a 270hp miata with a bit more weight. Miata has alot of mechanical grip even though tires are skinny and low on power. They make up times in the turns with their higher min speed compared to other cars.

    I ran a 1:27.4 Saturday. Personal best on NT01s. All time best was 25.5 on TDs, so no update for me.

    Why is it so hard to get a 1:28 at Willow? I remember having loads of 1:33s, then :32s, 31s, 30s and 29s. But then I think I hit a :28 maybe once and slid right into the 27s. On the top-25 list, there are eight :27s and six :29s, but only two :28s.

    I'm sure it's just a statistical blip in this batch of data, but it reflects my own driving experience.

    I personally think the wind has a lot to do with it. Once that easterly flowing wind kicks up I've noticed you loose A LOT of straight line speed for the front straight. I need to work on my T5 exit and work through some set up issues I'm having right now. I was running consistent 29's the whole day but missed session 1 unfortunately.
