Intel Thanks for the advice, makes sense, just found it hard to get out far enough right to do ot. Will habe to watch the videos again.

Looks like some brake ducting is in my future. Chewed through a lot of pad for a weekend. Attachment 33661Attachment 33662

@Intel only bit of advice i can give you is turn 5, you are turning in too early, need to wait until you can see the apex then turn in. if you ever get a car with more horse power you will end up way off to the right or hitting the brakes to stop from going out there. outside of that you look good everywhere else i could see. thats a hard corner not to turn in early, i know not to do it and yet i still catch myself doing it all the time.

great job!

sickmint79 what are you looking at?

there are piss cheap 300tw kenda kr20s that the drift guys like to buy and destroy all day long. i like conti dw (360) and the 86 cup series tires are gt radial sx2 (260) - not that all these numbers are directly comparable across the brands.

Thanks, I was having so many issues carrying the right amount of speed through 7, but man did it feel good when I got it right.

I got the rs4's middle of last year. Put 3 ab full mondays,2 Ab gridlife, Blackhawk and hoping for at least one more ab monday and a gingerman in them. I also daily drive on them so they will he showing cords this fall. Will probably put 300tw summers on a set for around town and going back and forth on moving up to 17x9 wheels with 245-255 square setup or 255 up front and 225 in the rear.

sickmint79 it doesn't seem like it should be that bad there but it's brutal. i think i had pad fade on my 2800 lb bbk car (guess that's mostly just pad choice though?) - and this was with the gt radial sx2 tires, not rs4s, so the car could easily have had more brake use. my oil temps with a coolant based oil cooler are 250-260 at autobahn, at blackhawk 260-270. iirc these were 20 minute sessions too! don't even know why that runs so much warmer? good track to expose your car's weak points!

First weekend at Blackhawk Farms. Rough first day, running on 4 hours of sleep, not enough water early enough for the heat, car had tons of traction issues and just couldn't find grip. Couldn't figure out the line through 3 and 7 (still having issues with 7)

Managed to have my first real 4 off in a while trailbraking and carrying too much speed into 3. FWD can oversteer too

Slept 10 hours, played with air pressure and rebound on the front of the car and it just found so much more grip.

Best lap.

Added, nice job!

10sec The best thing about GMR is the huge amount of fuck up space, it's really hard to actually crash and do damage at that track. The shitty part of GMR is every FUCKING road to get there is under construction.

Funny you say that, i was at Putnam and road america last month and am going to gingerman in 3 weeks lol. On the bike, not in a car. Never been to gingerman but I love Putnam and RA

I don't mind the kink except for the fact that it's incredibly slow. I'd love to try RA without it. This last time I got on the throttle too hard coming out of it and the back tire got loose enough to throw me on top of the tank when TC finally kicked in. Scared the hell out of me, especially considering there's no runoff as mentioned above. 95* heat and my 3rd track day on that rear = limited traction

Bit blind, but not as sharp as one might think.
Yeah I have more experience with the bend because chump car runs that. Just can't imagine running that corner in say SCCA or Nasa sprints with door 2 door racing.

Mostly it is the lack of runoff for if you run out of skill.
