  • Lap Times Per Track

    was reading Lightning Lap in Car and Driver this month and was wondering where a modified Nissan would fit in. Then I came up with the idea for starting this thread. You guys post up your best lap times and I'll keep 'em organized here in the first post. Please include what tires you're running and your best guess on whp, please include a "?" if it's not dyno proven. I'll keep everything listed per track. Feel free to include your car set up (spring rates/dampers/tire pressures/etc.) in your post. I'm hoping to get a list of road race courses all across the country/world! If you drag race, go ahead and throw that up too.

    I took my car to Sacramento Raceway (drag strip) for kicks right after I bought it and just before I gutted it.

    16.96 sec 1/4 mile @86 mph (great reaction time, and perfect shifting)

      Blackhawk farms raceway
      Best lap- 1:24 timed using a friend and a stopwatch.
      S13se with just seats removed,carpet, and sound insulation. Running 225/50/16 Starspecs, Bilstein 3000gt front shocks on 400lbs springs. Rear Bilstein rod end race shocks on 300lbs springs. Carbotech ax6 fronts in q45 brakes, axxis ultimates rear. 125whp if I had to guess stock ka with no breathers.

        My best time on VIR Full:
        (from the only 14 laps I ever bothered to time with my phone based lap timer)


        July 24, 2011 in a 1995 240sx.


        Stance GR+ Pro Coilovers (4 years old)
        J30 LSD

        Stock Brakes w/ ducting on the fronts.
        Supper Blue.
        Hawk Blue pads.

        16x8 +15 RPF1's
        225-50 Azenis

        I felt like the car could have done another 3-5 seconds or so better if it was being driven by someone who really knew what they were doing, and especially if they had some more balls in the braking zones. Stock brakes w/ blues became marginal on greasy street tires in 105 degree heat.

        This year, going to r-comps and not having the instructor in the car any more (yay advanced group) should be worth a few seconds right?

        I'll let you deal with the formating how you want it in the origional post.

          Steve is that 2:38 a typo!? 2:45.9 was the time of the fastest car C&D ever tested at VIR (Mosler MT900s). The new 638hp Corvette ZR1 only did 2:50. How does a 150hp 240sx spank a Mosler by almost 8 seconds? Is there more than one track configuration?


          • #6
            Yes there are several configs...I believe C&D uses grand east, which is a combination of the inner patriot course and outer full course:


            Steve was probably on the normal full course:


            although those wikipedia maps show the chicane being used on the back straight, and it's fact I don't know that I've ever seen it used

            EDIT: PS why is this in the for sale forum lol?

              Correct, VIR full... same layout as the GRM Ultimate Track Car Challenge.

              I agree on the chicane, I've never seen it used. By anyone. It seems such a shame if someone wanted to ruin one of the few 4000ft straights on the east coast.

              The 2011 UTCC was actually that Friday, and I recorded that lap two days later on Sunday. So the course layout and conditions were generally the same for the UTCC and my own lap. PTE qual times are ~2:18, and generally anything under a 2:05 is pretty quick. Crank out anything inside of two minutes and you're moving.

              Check the above link for detailed comparison to other cars. One guy in a DMV tagged and street legal 06 Z06 cranked out a 156.9.

              Either of the Grand layouts at VIR would take my little old car significantly longer.

                              I'm fairly pleased with the lap times, but I feel that I left at least a second and a half on the table, maybe more.
