Honestly, the first thing I wonder about in comparing any times between cars on any track is "What tires were they on, and how many heat cycles on them?" Were you on Hoosiers? Was Dan A. on Sport Cup 2s? RE-71Rs?

TT


Sorry , was away for a while and saw the continuing saga... lol

I was on Re-71's Tom. Cup2's are just as fast but maybe not as consistent. I was down over 100hp and tire width ( I run 245/265) at SOW and it was very noticeable on the straights...  :bowdown:
I was happy being that close to an RS , but I do have a lot more experience which helps. I was actually trying to get to 1:21.75 which was what Randy pobst did in a stock gt4... :surr:

RS on SOW IMHO would be 1:19 or less I would think.

Are you really running a 265 in the rear, Dan, or is that a typo? I thought the GT4 ran 295s in the back stock.

Sorry Tom, that was a typo , 245 front 285 rear on 19's. Smaller rear to help with push thats typical in front.
