Thank you Dan.

They put me in Red group and that took 2 seconds off my time since I was able to follow some faster drivers and had much less traffic to deal with.

On a side note, James Buck drove my friends GT3RS and said afterwards that it ruined him, and he couldn't even go back to his own car now.

I also asked if he felt any intervention from the nannies and he said not at all.

Thinking you should drive my car one session and maybe you will think different about these amazing new cars that Porsche made specifically for track use, you might have a different outlook on things.

:D define nannies?
not intrusive because they are perfect, your car is close to being fully automated.
you felt no nannies but every lap hundreds of sensors sent thousands of signals to your car to keep it perfect.

Modern cars, Different driving style...
a nanny to me is anything that assists the car or driver, something not found in a 60s car.
Modern car prefer Very tidy driving, nice job.

My preference at the track is to experience bias ply slicks with high slip angles and occasional counter steering.
Paddles and a match rev downshifts mislead drivers to believe they are a heal and toe Jedi.

I think loud music diminishes your SA.

Are you asking if my car is not capable of over-steer with the occasional counter steering because I can promise you it is more then capable.

I also have big steam roller tires 345s in the rear which helps keep me planted.

And yes a PDK/Paddles will always be faster then a manual, which is also why F1 cars now use them but I don't even use the paddles since the car already does an amazing job making sure I am in the right gear.

Once in a while I will downshift but It is pretty rare.

As far as loud music, for me it is better then hearing all the rocks in my wheels which has super tight clearances, and I grew up with loud music so for me it becomes almost inspirational.

Finding more people at the track lately also doing the same, guess I started a new trend :)

Another great weekend at Streets. Third track weekend for me running with nannies off on my 2014 cayman S.

Video is of my best lap ran with nannies off and new RE71R tires. Had been running high 1:25's without traffic on used RE71's and immediately dropped 2 seconds with new tires.

Alain, another... interesting... post.

Thanks, but no thanks for the offer to drive your GT3RS. I've driven enough new Porsches with advanced enhancements, as an Instructor on the track, at speed, to know exactly what I'm missing. I'll stick to old school 911's with no augmentation, thank-you-very-much.

Look forward to seeing you at CVR. Should be perfect conditions for setting some quick times.

Message received from the flag team:

The crew wants PCASDR to know that we all had an outstanding weekend @ SOW. Motorsports can be a dangerous pursuit and we take our job very seriously. It is always a great pleasure to work with clubs whose members are courteous, attentive & focused, (besides being pretty darn good drivers) who also appreciate all the effort we put forth trying to keep them all as safe as possible. Thanks so much for having us.

Kacy, Melody & the Crew
