    Maiden voyage down the track
    Bradenton Motorsports Park
    82 degrees
    stock summer tires, Transmission Sport, Suspensions Sport, ESC On.
    eased into it off the line. Anything more than that spins the tires as I found out on later test runs.

    Good run and good move on the smaller wheels. I put 20" DRs on and didn't make much difference at all. 11.2 was my best and I could feel them slipping half way down the track. Keep me posted please and good luck.

    Did my first run last night, A8 summer tires, everything stock, track mode sport suspension:
    60'=1.906
    33=5.142
    1/8 =7.690
    mph = 97.88
    1000 = 9.851

    ET 11.680
    MPH 122.97
    Problem is I just got lucky, have not got closer than 11.8 on the rest of my runs, Im starting in 2nd but it still blows the tires off very easily. Going back tonight. My first time racing a car. Can't wait to get some kind of consistency.

    Everyone was saying track sucked, they don't prep well. I keep blowing tires off even starting in second. Most of my slips were around 12 secs.

    Try starting in first, everything in Track except suspension in street. Let the transmission do the shifting. Don't panic on the green light! Roll into the gas slowly from idle speed so you don't break traction. Once you get it down to the floor, just hang on. The car will make up any time you lose coming off the line softly.
