    Well done.. Just finished running at Mid-Ohio with SVRA. There were several 458's running there in IGT.

    Man that's moving! I like the overlaid data, and the split brake graphs! What software/datalogging allows that?

    That's a VBOX. The file which maps car channels visuals obviously has some glitches, thus the crazy tach and the front brake indicator, but you get the idea.

    And yes, a 1:24.9 is moving right along at Laguna. It's taken a while to get to this level of driving skill, and I'm glad I invested the effort.

    For some reason, I can't get the right signal for braking on my vbox. I have to poke around more and see which channel/signal I should be looking at. In any case, hope to see you on the track! I haven't tried Laguna yet. Do you run Thunderhill or Sonoma at all? Cheers!

    It's a stock 488 GT3 on Michelin S8Ms.

    For reference, the fastest 488 Challenge EVO cars on track that day were dipping into the 1:29s.

    Texas!
    Great run! I can't imagine doing the T9/T10 tango in a high horsepower car.

    That is getting with the program! Well done.

    It's been quite a while since I ran my old March/Cosworth 88C there, and I don't think I was much quicker...... but that was a dam Indycar! GT3 cars are serious business these days.

    You said the challenge cars were doing 29s. One of my McLaren buddies runs 29s on Corsas in a 720!
