First Time Attack

Jun 4, 2011

Friday night was the first Time Attack of the 2011 season. The weather was wretched, temperatures were 6 degrees and intermittent rain.

I chose to run my ancient Toyo RA-1’s instead of my usual Yokohama A005 Slicks. My thought was the Toyos might be better in the cold, moist conditions. I was able to run a few 64 second laps, with a best lap of 63.58 seconds. The time was enough for 1st place in Race tire. I had to turn the boost down to prevent traction loss in 3rd gear. The entire lapping session was an exercise in throttle control.

I’m happy to report the new cooling setup worked quite well, as temps stayed quite low throughout the evening.

    glad to hear you setup worked great, however not to pop your bubble, but you did say it was only 6 degrees outside. you need to now find some track time when it is 20 degrees outside and midday. let me know when you want to book the base.
