Best Modified then.  :P
Happy to be proven wrong. At the moment, it would have to be at the top of my list.
Sorry for going off topic.

I have done a 1:14 at QR. That was the first ever time in that car on any track. So I have heaps of development to go. Plus I had about double the tyre pressure I should have had. Very slidey!! I did a nice 360 too

Ran Sandown last weekend and did a PB, 1.21.4, need to do some more suspension tuning and I think a 1.20 is possible.
Engine now making 330rwkW.

cheers,
Sinisha

I can lap the top floor of the Westfield shopping mall carpark at 2.12.4, could do it in less time with less traffic.  Beat a Veyron in a carpark battle the other day in fact.  Pushing 600HP at the steering wheel.

Hey Sinisha, Did you fit the Sliverstones? How did they go.....(that is if your PB was due to the new tyres)?

Hi Dimitri, yes I did fit the Silverstones, lots of grip!
I have to re-learn driving the car as the corner speed is so much better!
Need to take some brave pills.

I didn't think it would be all that quick on a track, too heavy and not enough power.................Then I saw it in action at Symmons and was proven very very wrong!

Are those the super soft ones?  What were you running before?

The compound I got is the 5 which is middle of the range, there is a 3 and softest of all is a 1, the hardest is the 7.
I was told that the 3 compound is good for hillclimbs and the 1 for motokanas 
I was running some RE540S Bridgestones.

I run dunlop formula R "S"  the softer one, as we only do about 4 laps, but at phillip island on there test days where you get 7-10 laps, i run out of brakes before tyres.

Bloody awesome time Sinisha. Man you have got that thing flying now. Gordon might just keep up with you in his GTR after his new suspension goes in. I think he did 1.23's the week before with stck suspension similer to Ben in his GTR. But you are the bench mark. Well done.
I hope to get back out there one day. Will probably wait for the summer months first.  ::)
Cheers

So how much gain do you think you got roughly with the silverstones?  That's very interesting cause I can get Silverstones cheap.  I heard a good story about a guy running the softest Silverstones in a tarmac rally.  He went through several sets of tyres and they reckon it was near leaving rubber driving in a straight line  ;D  Was bloody quick though!

I was running Bridgestone 540's and then swithced to the 55's when they came out but I think the 540's were a better tyre.  I'm running the Dunlop DZ03G in the R compound now.  I'm pretty happy with them, about half a second a lap quicker than the Bridgestones.

I have lost about a second per lap, one proviso, my pressure gauge reads 2psi low (which I found out today!).
So I have yet to see their full potential, maybe another .5sec, which would put me in the 1.20's. something I have been aiming at for a long time.

Scando, I just purchased a set of Bridgestone 55s. What pressure do you recommend for them?

Nice!  It's hard to judge the times being from interstate but I see you're getting pretty close to the IP lap record which normally means a bloody quick car!  Good stuff  ;)

Scando, I just purchased a set of Bridgestone 55s. What pressure do you recommend for them?


Try around 28-29psi cold at the start of the day.  Reset them to around 29-30 just before you go out on the track each time after that.  Check them as soon as you come in off the track after each session, if they build up to more than 36 then they're getting too hot so try dropping the starting pressure 1psi at a time.  If you're only doing short sprints then you can probably get away with starting them 1-2psi higher.

The good thing I found with the Bridgestones is that they're not too critical on pressure.  With the Dunlops 1psi makes a big difference!

Please excuse my ignorance, but are there two different track layouts at Sandown?? I thought I would drag out a few old yearbooks and compare Sinisha's Zed's time to old touring cars times etc but found wildly different times for different years/classes.

I was a huge fan of the old Silverstone S575's and ran several sets on my 1600 over the years, Its good to here some feed back on the new models. When I changed to the Bridgestone re55s the car was around 1 to 1.5 sec's a Km quicker than the Silverstones and nearly half a second quicker to most first splits at hillclimbs (mostly around 30m from the start).
