Its been too long to remember the times I got at each of those tracks - I remeber that 1:40 is pretty awesome! Maybe I got 1:43 once.

My best timed lap at Pacific Raceways: 1:49.721

Cheers :D

Summit Point (Main Course): 1:55.83

(Hey it's a tired, stock '84 with 195/60R15 Pirelli P6000s on it! I have Greg Gordon's hose kit but I guess that didn't help :roll: perhaps I should have purchased red instead of black hoses! :wink: )

But seriously, anybody have a benchmark for a transaxle Alfa around Summit Point? I'd liked to see what is achievable with our cars (stock and modified).

I have seen a noted local Alfa club member in his 2 liter GT Jr. do low 1:40s but I am not sure what his best time is.

I did a 1.55.6 last year at Pacific Raceway during the time trials for the national convention.
I've got ok power but am using old hard BFG Comp T/A's and the brake ballence is all F***ed up with these early cars. I'll have an adjustable valve installed soon and am looking for improvement. Not sure if I'll change tires this year or not.
