[QUOTE=MaxLTV;14801815]Had a nice day at Laguna Seca last weekend and set a new PB in my 991.1 GT3. In the first vid I do 1:36.32 on lap 4 (a new PB), but that's with a mistake in T11 that cost me over a second. Best rolling time from just after T10 of Lap 3 to the same spot of the next lap was in low 1:35s.
The next vid is 1:36.31 lap with a passenger. I did not intend to shoot for a fast lap, but it just worked out.



Well done!! How did you pass sound that day??

OEM exhaust with GPS module to close valves when needed.

Out of curiosity, at the track do you engage PDK-S or do you shift manually? I ask because in your videos, (1) your car up-shifts to 7th gear and (2) your gears appear to stay primarily in 6th and 7th gear. In some turns, your speed drops to under 80 mph but the car hardly gets out of 6th gear. This leads me to suspect that you might be running in PDK-Normal mode. Maybe its a personal preference of yours, however in my experience, accelerating from 75 mph in 6th gear is not optimal (if turning faster lap times is your goal). I would think 4th gear would be more ideal.

I've never driven Laguna Seca so maybe those are optimal gears for that track. Just curious, as there appear to be a few sections of the track where being in a lower gear might provide faster acceleration and thus faster/lower lap times. Great driving!!

The gears are just displayed incorrectly. My datalogger miscalibrated somehow and I'm too lazy to fix it. It's a 2nd-4th gear track. You can see by rev counter - all upshifts are at 9K RPM as they should be in this car in those gears.

ah ha, that explains it. I was really baffled as, you’re right the car held the revs to 9K prior to upshifting (which is PDK-S’ character) but the gear indicator just didn’t appear to match. Great driving and great laps!
