Great day out there. A ton of ferraris, even a few mclarens! The f-type was fantastic! I ran the first 2 sessions with everything standard. Then I switched to dynamic... what a difference! Shaved 10s off my laptime!

Being a newbie on this track, I opted for full auto. Never even noticed the shifts! Had power when I needed it, torque was there all the time.

Next outing is at thunderhill in june. Its a 2 day event on yhe new 5m track. I plan to try a couple sessions with the shifters and compare. Ill have upgraded logging equipment by then so I can really compare,.

Added a new video with log rendered. However, I was using the gps in my phone (1hz) so the data sucks, and the odbii reader was giving off bad gear readings... oh well. New equiptment coming in this week...

Nice and smooth lines! Just picked up my R Coupe last week and am going to the track in June. Did the brakes hold up or was fade an issue? I know the PZERO'S usually get greasy after a few laps but I plan on changing them to the MPSS as soon as I shred the stock tires.

Brakes held great all day. No fade. My wheels when from chrome to matte black though! :) pzeros actually stuck much better than expected, but I burned through a lot! Lost 3/32 of tread in one day. I plan to go to mpss when these wear out (which may be after thunderhill in june).

Good to hear the brakes held out. I am running at Sebring International Raceway and it's a pretty fast track. You have the steel rotors I presume?

I've searched high and low for aftermarket pads and haven't found anything. Are the XKR-S rotors/pad setups the same as ours? If true, there should be a plethora of stuff available soon.

I will post vids here in the next few weeks after my track sessions.
