Did a track day yesterday at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington. It was upper 60's, and a bit of drizzle off and on, but still a good day. Stock, except for Mountune track pads, ss brake lines, and high-temp brake fluid. The Corvette in front of me was heavily modified (and extremely loud). Here's the clip of my fastest lap:

^^ what was your best time? Mid summer the best I could get was a few laps at 2:02 before the awd would shut off due to heat. Stock RS other than lowering springs

Got into 2:02.x a few times, most other laps were around 2:04. I was playing around with tire pressure a lot, and found running it with about 32 - 34 PSI worked pretty good (I set it about half an hour after each session). Didn't go any lower, but maybe will try next time.

I ran there 2 years ago (before I put the track pads on) when the temp was around 80 degrees. Ran a best time of 2:06 then, but didn't have any problem with the awd. I was running stock pressure that day, so tires were way too hot and greasy. Now I know better!
