Hello, all! I know I've been neglecting the forums a bit of late, but we have been VERY busy with magazine road tests, trackdays, and more - and (now that it's been shipped) I can report on one more development: Switzer Performance has tuned and delivered a 2010 model year GTR!
There was a lot of great teamwork and cooperation from everyone involved - many, Many, MANY thanks for the above-and-beyond support and Beta efforts. The end results speak for themselves.
I would love to meet up at 42 or Norwalk to run next to this thing. You have to get some track times.
I will volunteer to be the sacrificial lamb.
With 2 guys in the car on all-season tires that badly need changing, I think it ran just under 1:11, which would put it at or near the front of the SCCA National Touring 1 class (fastest stock-based class in the SCCA, which run about 1:10.5). The GT2 we had out the same day (on Pilot Cups) ran about 1:10 as well, also with no fewer than 2 guys in the car.
To put into perspective: the 2005 One Lap of America at Ledges was won by Danny Popp who averaged 1:13.6 over three laps. However, this included a standing start. Mark DaVia's highly-tuned 996TT averaged a 1:15.0.
AWESOME! 1 question... what about the boost cuts? did you choose to go with the haltech or did they get fixed annother way?
Not sure what boost cuts you are referring to? The one car that was tested "back to back" with the Haltech was set-up to promote the Haltech - like any vendor (myself included) you have to take whatever they tell you with a grain (a pound?) of salt. As far as I am concerned, there were obvious issues with that run, which Tym addressed in that post. As we mentioned then, we're not going to use the Haltech until they overcome some of their more serious issues.
The OneLap car had a recurring limp condition, and is in-house for the latest updates. We'll have a full report once that car is done.
