Soon, I hope. I was actually thinking of bringing to NJMP this weekend to store since I will already be there, but didn't get my crap together to find a place to store it. The current plan is to bring it over after one more Nelson day in early Oct.

Amrish & Ken -- I'll be at NJMP Thunderbolt Oct. 6-8 with PCA Delaware if u guys can make it!

Ah, damn. Now I feel like I'm missing out on the Oct. 1 event. Can't make that one though.

Amrish -- if you're down at NJMP the weekend of Oct 6-8, shoot me a text. Even if we're on different tracks, we should try to grab lunch.

Sorry to hijack your build thread, Ken

Selfishly, I would love that! I know I'd learn a lot -- your reputation precedes you

Ken - greg and I were having this debate and I think u will have the most objective answer -

Same tires same driver 1:30-1:45 course (example ridge) what’s the time difference between a SLE and ZLE? (Both on similar set up - srf, track pads etc)

Great question. The track plays a big factor as does tires, prep, weather etc. That said, with similar prep in my experience with a stock SLE vs ZLE, at a track like The Ridge or say Thunderbolt, probably 1.5-2 seconds.

I’m out for the Oct dates. We’re doing a private day at Nelson again on the 9th.

Ken

Thanks! And what about your SLEz (SLE with ZLE dssv and brakes)? Would that be in the middle - so like 1 sec behind the ZLE?

I have a lot of data on that. Itís 1second. The SLE had more midcorner speed and surprisingly was good off a corner, but got crushed on the straightaways and in the brake zones.

Iíll post some data.
