Night event in the NSX 7/27

19 January 2011
Extremespeed at streets of willow CCW at night. Footage is about a third into the session at maybe 11pm. all in all it was super fun. Transponder times arent up yet from the organizer but these were all pretty consistent 1:27's, though, I was able to better my times the next morning in the daylight. ive got tons more footage to do something with but I figured i get something up tonight.

The transponder times are up! I saw them last night! 1:26... NICE!!!11 :biggrin:
The lighting there looks sooo much better than when I ran with them!
Anyway, I gotta get you to ride along with me in my MS3 (and the NSX). I really want to break into the 1:20s!

Oh, sweet 1:26 isnt bad. Ride alongs for sure next time were out there.

I drove my brothers RSX type S the next day after this and ran a 1:32 with a broken motor mount and the primary 02 bouncing along the pavement (woops). FF is so much fun, you can get away with murder on throttle in the corners. I think im going to take my type S out next time and see what kind of times I can put down.
As far as most of my buddies are concerned times set in my NSX are void from our inter-group trash talking competition. Thats really the only bummer about tracking an NSX, you have a HUGE bull's eye on you and if your actually quick people think that the NSX drove itself. (?) The reality is its really under powered has so so brakes and takes a much more delicate touch.
I wouldn't watch these too closely I was driving pretty reactionary at night. ill put up a video from the next day when theres less traffic and I could actually see the track. Your car should be really fast out there when you get it all dialed in, just taking it up the service road when I was testing you brakes it felt about twice as fast as mine, hah.
Will your car is sweet! Cant wait to see those videos posted up.. Adrian, he told me hes running a Taitec (not sure what model) and sounds amazing when he heel-toe's after that straight away into the first turn :biggrin:

Watching you guys run gets me soooo pumped and wanting to take my nsx out there too :rolleyes:

I'm running comptech headers, test pipes and a titec lightweight.

I don't think getting ducting to the motor itself is going to cool anything noticeable. Heat soaking is usually referring specifically the heat load affecting the charge air and oil temps. Ive seen ducted hatches plumed to intercoolers/oilcoolers. You'll get more payoff for the drag doing something bad ass like that.

Yeah Mexi you gotta make it out there too, once you're on the track paying all the money, time and sweat modding these cars all makes sense.
Day video I threw together.

"Hot day, slick track trying to dial in tire pressures and wing angle on the new aero package. the difference between controlled oversteer and snap was 3psi on the rear. : /"

Seems like that s curve got few people. I saw a few cars way off track there that day. Damn will that is very impressive driving. Iol it took me all day just to go from 1:40 to 1:36.5

I hope to see you out there next time I go. Btw, what tire pressure worked for you?
yeah, that back curve you gotta be brave, thats one of the points where the most time can be lost. Tuff part is that its an off camber corner and slight rise when running CCW. With the wing on the car now it seems the rear tires are heating up much faster than the fronts. I typically used to start with 32psi cold pressures all around and it would settle at 38psi withing a few laps. I'm finding now that id was having to start the rear at 30psi to get it to max at about a 36psi when hot to get the same feeling. I also dampened down the rears of the V3 by two clicks to not rake the car so hard on the straights now that ive got all the DF on the back. I also steepened the stall angle on the wing one slot from max down after a few laps, it made my straight speed alot slwer but I could go full throttle on the section coming out of the bowl. Buttonwillow was the last track I ran before and that took a whole different set-up than streets, suprisingly so.
After adjustments I was running consistent 1:27's which for me is good for that type of hot weather since id only do about 5 laps then come in.
My goal for the weekend was to get the baseline down for Streets then noodle it from there for when the weather cools down and the car is happy. I think the car set up is good for a 1:25 once its not a bazillion degrees outside.

damn dude, it hurts my head and I think of everything involved in this sport lol. Little by little I'll learn. I was amazed how just one day at willow springs took a beating on my new Michelins. I went to CHP today to get ticket signed off and CHP officer was really checking out the car and admiring it and he pointed out to me something I didnt even notice. The drilled holes in my rotors where stuffed with brake material.
same corner:
