Nicely made - should be very helpful in tidying up my lines. I'm still on stock suspension but with square setup so braking for turn 1 has been quite iffy, same goes for making turn 10. I haven't been able to make even the same time as I first switched to squared (runs about 2:06). Not surprisingly, my 2nd time here in stock staggered setup gave me a 2:03 but on MDM. I'm now learning to drive with TC off

This was my first time there, and I taught myself the track watching vids before I went. I maxed out my own exploration of the line at about 2:01.xx. During session #6, I had the owner of Turn2 Lapping drive the car for 3 laps and then ride along with me for the rest of that session. He set a 1:59 flat, and I was stoked that I was able to match it. The biggest difference? He never used second gear and also stayed in 4th in two places where I was using 3rd. Eliminating the shifts simplified braking allowing later braking and more consistent turn-in. My tune makes so much midrange torque that there was no advantage to be gained downshifting. Not sure if that would be true on stock tune. In analyzing my footage, I think should grab 4th gear on the Ridge straight, the engine just runs out of power above 6k.

As an aside, I have spent 4+ years dialing in my car, and do all the work myself except for a final alignment on a good rack by a trusted chassis tuner after I have finished my work. The instructor has driven everything out there. When we pulled into the paddock after I finished driving with him, he reverently patted his hands on the dash in front of the passenger seat and said "Brilliant. I am in love. I don't know what you have done to this car, but it is brilliant." I'll never forget that. Proud moment for this amateur carjunkie!

Would you mind sharing which turns where I should try staying in 4th instead of shifting down to 3rd? I couldn't quite catch it in your video (I must have missed it)

Gear is indicated in the center of the tachometer overlay in the video. I stayed in 4th all the way around turn 2-5.

So basically, after long straight and Turn 1, stick it in 4th and drive it all the way through the back straight to Turn 6? I will see how that goes since I'm going there Sep 1st

It definitely makes things easier. Keep in 5th around 1 so all you have to think about is braking and steering input when approaching that turn at 140, then grab 4th as you brake for 2.
