    Well with that theory you aren't going to sell any parts on your site. hehe. How many months/years do you want your potential customers to spend analyzing data before buying go fast parts?

    I'd consider the paddle shifted sequential a driver aid, at least for me it would be.

    Sorry not up to complete speed on track lingo. Gators? Is that another name for chicanes? Either way I get that what ever it is affects your laptimes so an unofficial run could be faster than a regulation run by a sanctioning org. Makes sense. Thx.

    What speeds were you hitting on the straights? He was hitting 163-165's in his modded ACR. Id imagine you were closer to the 170's? That would be Senna territory sheesh...

    This thread is getting confusing. LOL. I was at COTA in my stock ACR, not the 9 liter car. I was only hitting 153-ish, just way too much drag.
    The gators are put in on most sanctioned events, which prevent cars from cheating by going 4 wheels over the curbing.

Many of our customers ask for our input prior to purchasing the " go fast parts" we design build and manufacturer. If someone like you AZ vipers said they wanted to purchase one of our ploy carbonate front windows so they can knock a few tenths off it would be bad business to let you think a front window is going to that. The poly carbonate front window also decreases the safety of your viper unless it is installed correctly with proper bracing, tear offs, blow out tabs and an anti intrusion bar. Motor sports is dangerous enough so its never a good idea to cut corners on safety. You presented the question to a public forum " lexan windshield for gen5" I thought you could benefit from my professional motor sports experience. I was just trying to help our a fellow racer.
    Yeah 8 lbs won't be a few 10ths, just part of it. I'm 2940 now, will be 2799 lbs soon, got lots of little other stuff still to get rid of. Less weight is the only thing that helps you everywhere on the track. Acceleration, braking, cornering etc. One place where I think data could help me is very high speed turns, like Chuckwalla bowl. I don't hit the limits of the car in that bowl it's too scary, so knowing what speeds I could carry through there would indeed gain me a second or two. Do you guys have any data on your ACR through there?

( you tube aim solo) Systems relatively cheap 900-1100.00. Purchase the system online and if you need a dash mount we have one specifically for the viper thats very driver friendly and inexpensive. Its not listed on our site its an in house race part so if you go aim solo and smarty cam and you need mount just email me martin@tkomotorsports.com. We also have data sheets ....they are free!
    I do indeed run a AIM dash and smarty cam! I just don't look at the video or data. It's very time consuming. Maybe one day!

    I think you should look into LidPro as well, it will help you understand across your laps what your best lap could be if you executed them all perfectly. I would also recommend using a Coach, there are a lot of bad Coahes, I can point you to a great Coach for the Viper if your interested who has run all of the tracks you do.

    Didn't you put one in, then yank it? To me its just different running gear, manual v flappy paddle. Don't get me wrong, nothing is faster than a good flappy for shifts, but don't think for a second a non ABS car is easier to drive at speed.. It's challenging.

    Got it on the gators. The 153mph stock is very good considering the aero drag. His GT3 RS was hitting 153-155mph with way less drag on those straights, albeit it has less power too.

    Would love to see what the 9L beast could do at COTA.

    Yeah I had it, then my motor blew so had to sell it to pay for the new motor. With the new motor and higher redline though I'm sticking with the manual as I can go 95 in 2nd.
    And yep no ABS sucks, the first two years I was on the track was with a Gen 2 race car. Always worried about flat spotting tires. When you see that smoke you cringe and know you just wasted $800 fronts. LOL
