Did you record telemetry? Wouldn't make sense to look at the old time now with such an improvementIt's late, I am exhausted and I can't tell one braking point from another:

I went 1.5 secs faster with your setup in these dire conditions. With sleep I think I have maybe another 1.5 seconds in me. I did it because I thought I owed it to you. I just loaded the setup and have driven it - I did not look at any numbers so I don't know what you have put in there.
1) The traction on this setup is about twice what I have on the one that I gave you (if there is an undrivable setup it is my one). The Nissan does not move or slide and the pneumatic trail does not fall off.
2) The setup has exit understeer, but it is optimised to "eat" curbs as if they were road. Therefore the understeer is converted to neutral balance everywhere in the corner.
3) The gears are brilliant - you push them red as you said (in the above lap I did not because I forgot)
4) The grip is scary - I couldn't use all of it in these runs
As we saw from the telemetry - this setup is designed for exit speeds and traction. in T12 it turns around like a ballerina, no effort on my part. Upto T3 we have a very normal performance. After turn 3 the grip does not run out and thanks to the superb LUT you can feel the slip angle and just rotate the car out progressively to T5a (even asleep) where you can put your foot down at the exit of T5 and drive cool as a cucumber over the apex of T5a without unsettling the machine which gives you 1 second + at the top of the hill. Another two seconds at the exit of the T12 and another second or two at the last complex.
That's 4 seconds for an old friend
PS Trust the stopwatch and your heart - don't listen to uninformed criticism.
