Track (which config if applicable) = Willow Springs International - Big Willow - Rosamond, CA
Elapsed Time (please include times to the hundredth if possible) = 1:38.198
https://www.speedventures.com/Result...id=-1999998553 (listed as SuperChicken)
Year / Model / Trim = 2018 LS V6 1LE
Date = 9/11/2021
Tires = 275/45/18 Bridgestone S007A
Mods = 18x10 square Apex FL-5 wheels, Vorshlag camber plates

Hot day at Big Willow, temps got up to low 100s. It was about 90 when I got my quickest lap. I drove the track better as I learned more about it in each session, but my car could not go faster as the temps climbed. Saw peak oil temp of 279 (!!) a couple times and slowed down.

I don't recommend the Bridgestone S007A as a tire to set a quick lap time. They are a fine street performance tire, but don't come close to the grip of current 200TW tires.

I'd like to get back to Big Willow this fall on some better tires and see what I can do.

Vorshlag, BMR, OEM Mag-ride. Yes, so far anyways.
What you see in the Pic is the damage. I actually drove it a total of 3-4 more laps (causing more "damage"). The first couple to see what speed I could maintain to not be caught in the TT. Then 1-out lap, and 1-timed lap in the TT. I wanted the points to maintain the class championship
