I posted a best time of 2.00.235 with a passenger. This was in the VDC-R setting where VDC would step in occasionally. I was hoping to get the stock car down below the 2 min mark, but traffic and my motivation kept me from reaching my goal. I definitely feel the car has a 1.58 in it stock.
Track / Car Notes:
The car is surprisingly neutral with the staggered tire setup (was not expecting this). I had a hard time coming out of Riverside at any speed higher then 98mph (on the speedo). I think this is just due to me being scared of the car. I think more seat time should fix this. I noticed on occasions when the car tends to understeer an increase in throttle corrects the line. I realized this late in the day so I couldn't really take advantage of it on my best runs.
My wife and I were doing back to back 20 min session on the car. This caused the car to go into the Low Boost mode on one of my sessions where the car wouldn't boost over 10 psi. Some race gas and cool down fixed this issue. Transmission temps stayed below 240 degrees (Cold day).
I experienced pad knock-back, where full brake pressure would require a small pump before the actual braking zone. I used to have this problem with my Stoptech brakes on my Z as well. I did not expect this on the GTR.
I managed to crack my stock front rotors. Small cracks are visible from the stupid drilled holes in the brake rotors.
1) Since my transmission fluid never went past 240 degrees do I still need to replace it right away?
2) Is there a way to get rid of the pad knock back issue on the GTR?
3) Need a reasonable priced rotor for track use. 2k for a set of 2 is not reasonable priced. Any suggestions?
