I checked for a thread on this but didn't find one, I hope I'm not duplicating. I think this was targeted at avoiding the gsx-r. If you tune it all the way down you still end up at 360 or so PP. So you have to get something else. I started with a '91 NSX and did okay but not great. I then went for the big torque band of the Wankel with the RX-8 and did better. Then monkey-see, monkey-do, I set up a Lotus Elise '11 because that is what I saw winning. I spent some money tuning, powered it down, and set the transmission to pretty much the lowest setting. After some laps, I added first 50 then 100 kg of ballast, adjusted power up and did pretty well (ballast forward, moving it closer to 50/50 from the initial 40/60). I still have something to figure out as a German was still beating me off the line, but we had some close races (<2 second, a few <0.3) and we were both polite and didn't do any bashing. Money is good, when you're tweaking your car you hardly notice and you've racked up a few million. (I'm accepting suggestions on expensive cars I should buy. I've already got my Miura.) Match entry was the usual mess, it takes me about 3-4 tries and 10 minutes to get in, but seems stable once I'm there. Autumn ring can be fun sliding around in an MR and when you don't overdrive and hum the line it can be a blast.
