I meant better pads, rotors that aren't worn and rebuilding the calipers. I think up to three is possible, if you drove it without care of wrecking it.

If you could keep your entry speed up without fear of the brakes fading, I think there's a big improvement capable. I mean we did almost hit 150 that open run before backing off. With offset camber and no passenger you could probably hold 125-127 through the bend.

With just me I did hit 150 and held 125. It actually accelerated coming out of turn 2 in 6th as well and hit 130 before I had to brake. I think that is another spot I can improve a little but I would only do it if I was running straight VP110. Instead of shifting early to 6th I could leave it in 5th so it would accelerate quicker out of turn 2. Then again I would need better braking because I was braking just in time to make a good entry in turn 3.

But even with that I don't think it has more than half a second. One second at the most. If I remember correctly Carlos was running around a 1:54 in his Vette when he was running his R888 tires which are equivalent to the NT01 I'm running.
I was curious so I asked. Carlos says congrats. His best was 1:49.9 on Hoosiers with 530 WHP and 3,447 race weight including him.

I knew he ran a 1:49 on the slicks but what was his best on the R888? My car is 500rwhp and 3700lbs with me in it. I'm also running 275/40/17 NT01 front and rear and if I remember he had 295 front and 315 rear tires. I'm also running stock brakes with Raybestos ST47 pads. With all his talking about his superior driving and I'd like to know where I compare to his Vette with the equivalent tire on it.

Consistently 1:51-1:52 when fresh. The difference is how they fall off over laps, not so much when fresh.

Are you sure about that? I found a video on his YouTube account and then looked up the times on Speed Ventures and his fastest time was a 1:55.548.

Well it's been a long time since I've been here. I'm glad to see you making it ou to the track Ron. Those are great times for any car. I'm glad you took the time to find my old lap time for the Roval. Looks like your more interested in them than I am. Lol. It is a nice trip down memory lane. Regardless here is the link to the very next day after the day you shared. That day I ran a 1:52.7. I sure if you dig harder in the NASAproracing results there will be some low 1:52 and one of two high 1:51. As far as the 1:55.xxx on day one goes. I don't really remember what happened that day. I was making a ton of suspension changes trying to find time.

I wish you continued luck at the Roval. I'm out.

I wanted them to compare. I know our cars are not equalivent but I was hoping that with the R888 they would be closer than with the Hoosiers so I could see how my times were. There were a bunch of Mustangs with me in my group and some were comparable to mine but the closest one to my time was 5 seconds slower. The next was Ricardo with a 2:02. The car that I was battling with all day was a C5 Z06 and his best was a 1:56 but I don't know what he had done to it. Your car I at least know what's done.
