Please tell us what mods you have because you had an amazing first Session.
Shame you went slower as the day wore on, I hope nothing wrong with the car.
Thanks Tim!
Stock engine, TEIN coil overs, cooling mods (2nd oil cooler, Koyo rad), sports brake pads, metal cat, and Hankook RS3 235s.

Yeah, my lap times kept getting worse as the day wore on. I thought it was due to the outside temp going up (it was 31 deg at 3pm!). Did everyone else experience that too?
I hope there's nothing wrong with the car haha.

My fastest lap time was my last hot lap in session 6. Last lap of the day

Detailing is an art, a gift and a curse. Use it wisely
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

Yer my laptimes went slower as the day wore on even though I was getting to know the track better. I ended up taking off my RS3's and using some really old hard V710 slicks, but only went .2 seconds quicker than my second session.

Nice,
For those of us not on Facebook. Yes we do exist, how do we get a copy?
