I'm surprised you were able to get -3.5 in the rear with just camber plates and the lateral links.

And that was with the lat links set to close to stock length with any slop in the two strut bolts pushed towards positive camber. That is basically just the rear camber plates.

Awesome stuff, guys!

What speeds are you seeing down the front straight at Putnam? Lap times?

Any issue through turn 4 with that much rear camber? I am running -3* and I tend not to brake in transition into 4 and I know it can be a little loose sometimes, but I am not running a wing either.

Estimates are close to 1:10 on race gas with slicks.

the transition from 3-4 used to be really hairy last year. Car was way loose going in and through 4. It is much more controlled and manageable now. Outright speed is crazy with the race gas map. By the time we hit the curbing coming out of 4 we are shifting to 5th. We were barely hit the rev limiter in 4th before braking for 5 last year.

We were doing 150-155 before braking for 1. Last year we hit 132 max.

To put that into persepective for other who have not been to putnam...

In my relatively stock 02 wrx (bolt ons and tune), I don't make it out of 4th gear anywhere on the track, I hit just at 125mph on the front straight, and my best laptime so far is a 1:21....

This will be a sight to see at the NASA event in May, which I assume you guys will be at to whoop up on those TT guys

that's just craziness at putnam!

i road in the car last year at putnam when it was 380whp, and it was ridiculously fast...so much faster around the track than anything else out there. i can't imagine what a 1:10 lap is like!




jc8587 - you must be hauling ass in a mildly modded wrx to turn 1:21 lap times - what tires were you running?

Ehhh, not good ones

I am on some older (05 production date) 235/40/17 RA-1s...

I mean, I have a fair amount of suspension, not good suspension, but ok (koni yellows, gcs, castor plates, alk) and run about 16psi on my td-04, so pretty mild. I really want a front LSD when the funds allow

www.youtube.com/user/jc8587 for the video of the 1:21.9


Now back to TiC and their sweet ride!

I can't want to see it in action, and as I rode in it last year as well I can't imagine it having that kind of power. Just nuts guys.


It takes a "crazy" driver to throw that beast around... looks like you found one! *jokes!*

He's being modest. His car is really well sorted.


TIC- Very impressive. That description of going through turn 4 makes my b**t pucker a bit.

Can't wait to see it in action as well.

Cause we can't get it on the trailer if it's any lower.

Just in...tires. Pic has the stack next to what we ran last year; 255 40 17 Dunlops. This year, 285 30 18 Michelin Pilot Sport Cups.

Nice thing is they are also a pound lighter.

Little bit of both.

We had 275 35 18 Dunlop star specs mounted on 18x9.5's +45 on the car this weekend for testing. They fit just fine with 5mm spacers in the rear.

Interested to see how the PSC's compare to the toyos and advans that most others are running. I'll be up there on saturday with myles and probably bryan from jrz, we'll be sure to stop by your spot.

From the research we have done they should be quite a bit better. The Porsche guys love them and given that they generally have money to spend, the fact they would keep coming back to these tires is a good thing. We were talking to Danny Popp this weekend about them and he said in his experience they have more outright grip than the RA1's and R888's.

We also have a set of 18x9.5's and 18x10's. That could have been the session we were testing the 18x9.5's with 275 dunlops for the One Lap of America.

So you guys are running One Lap this year? Is there going to be much modding (or demodding) to get the car ready for that? It seems like your splitter wouldn't play well on the street, but I guess a slight ride height adjustment could fix that...
