    Brent needs those extra sticky R-Comps, then he'll be hooked!

    I agree, both those times leave a lot on the table in that car. In my 2002 Camaro SS when it was all stock on GSD3 tires (stock pads) I ran a 27 or 28 on SOW w/out the bowl and was running down a modded 550hp GT2 Porsche..until the straight away I mean

    That's 326 rwhp and 313 lb/tq and about 3700 lbs, second session on the track and 1st session was in one of the Celicas on a slow lead follow

    I didn't say "impossible." But Brent has already brought his laptimes down quite a lot in the GT-R at WSIR, and the improvements are going to come in smaller increments in the future.

    I've only done 4 days there. Day 1, 1:35; Day 2, 1:34; Day 3, 1:35; Day 4, 1:36.

    Looking at my data, I am losing a lot of time in turns 1, 2, 8, and 9, and to a lesser extent in the other corners. I need more seat time there to gain confidence. But given the ballsy nature of the track, I would be very happy with a one second gain the next time out there.

    I have a friend with a GT-R who has similar mods to mine. He just did a 1:30 his first time there (with the GT-R), but he also has 5 years of track experience compared to my one year.

    OK. I must have been thinking about your improvement at ACS (?). You are right that, unlike most of the other tracks, it really takes balls to go fast at Big Willow. But if you leave all the stability, traction, yaw control on in your car, it's almost impossible to spin, isn't it?

    You can still spin them out, I had a student there last time at WSIR and on street tires we came awfully close, did a couple tank slappers and then he calmed down. Stock suspension and tires but about 500 to the wheels.

    Yes, ACS would make sense.

    I have "spun" my car in turn 3 at big Willow, with the VDC in R mode, but I completely overcooked the entry. In fact, Paul (Track Z) was behind me. I slid out into the dirt on the right; it was a 90 degree "spin." The car mostly slid sideways until I hit the dirt.

    The VDC system CAN correct a lot of driver error. However, I do my best to keep it from kicking in. If it kicks in, then I'm not driving smoothly. If I do something that makes it kick in, then I try a different approach the next lap. VDC in R mode will let one slide around quite a bit without intervening. I only leave it on as a safety net.
