That makes more sense, I know you had mentioned 110mph after the first couple sessions, and I have seen 114 through there in a stock Evo.

However.. I think that because it's flat, and we can use as much of the curbing as we want on the stock suspension it makes the kink a much different corner. I was surprised that even in 2006 we were not seeing the same speeds through the kink in TA1.

Mark, do you think that the difference between the cars total there might be 114 to a 118 or so for "slow" speed, and that having to brake makes it hard to slow down the exact amount needed and therefore isn't as consistant as jsut going through there flat? (Which has been my theory.. I mean, when 111 in a non-s Boxster is a non event, it seems that something strange is going on there.)
