    MHP and Dads C63 goes 2:32 at Sebring!!

    Good afternoon,
    After some more instructions and a MHP race tune the little "c" was able to turn a 2:32 lap. I know the car will easily run sub 2:30's but I need more practice. Here are a few videos to show you what the car wil do.

    Not bad for a four door Mercedes!! J


    This was an all-out Tube Chassis race car. I made him work for it!!


    Good idea of who I was fighting with. That corvette goes by first.

    I am running the Toyo R888 and they are great! Since its a DE event I'm not sure how you can get other lap times for the weekend. All I will say is that we passed everyone except the two race cars in these videos. LOL
    I have many more videos of us passing GT3's, turbo's, and other Porsches.

    I'm not really familiar with Sebring lap times. How does this time stack up to other cars or can we have some times for reference to better put this in context?

    I'm sure it is an amazing time I just have nothing to reference it against.

    Lotus Exige S240



    Owners Post:

    The car is a standard S240 with a de-cat pipe and an exhaust. Stock brakes, stock shocks, stock tires. The shocks were set at 7/8 as per the recommendation of several posts on this forum (and the Lotus manual), but I think next time (for my driving style) I will increase this by one front and back.

    I have lots of track time at Sebring (and most other US tracks) in formula cars, so I know the racing line and am very familiar with Sebring. Several other posts are correct in their comments about the other cars--some of which may be faster than the Exige if more experienced drivers were in them--but, as can be seen in this video, I only hold back a few times (not a safe passing opportinity). However, the GT3 (which leaves us in the dust on the back stretch but is passed for good in the Esses) is not faster anywhere else on the track than the Lotus, and in many areas the Lotus is faster. The driver was an instructor for the PCA, and is very experienced. We diced several times during the day, each time we win 80% of the track (he wins the back stretch), and we win the lap.

    Bottom line... these cars provide a great platform for the beginner "racer" as well as the experinced driver with lots of track time. When you drive these cars as they can be driven, you can kick almost everybody's butt. I treated this car very roughly (this was my first time in the car on the track--just got it 2 months ago), but it never let me down. Very dependable, perfectly predictable in what it is doing, and excellent at giving feedback to the driver.
