Basically, if you make the car fast on 1, 2, 3, you will go fast.

Being fast in those corners would be nice, but the first three are more important because the straights are longer. Of those, 15 is arguably the most important.

Some Offseason update
The main target to reduce weight, so decide to use TCP magic FRP door
This can reduce around 100lb, in the mean time build a much safer side impact protection, so kind da borrow porsche 996/7 cup car idea

FD3s Transmisson is alway been a weak point of track dirving
i always said. if you dont have transmision trouble
you are not driving fast enought !!
so enought is enought this year i update my MT to OS 3 gear close

here are the chat i did

Stock FD3S
3.483 2.015 1.391 1.000 0.806 final drive 4.1
here are my set up this year
2.714 1.742 1.267 using stock 4th and 5th and final drive change to 4.4

with OS
kmh / RPM 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 7200

1st Gear 30.8 41 51.3 61.6 71.8 73.9

2nd Gear 48 63.9 79.9 95.9 111.9 115.1

3rd Gear 65.9 87.9 109.9 131.9 153.8 158.2

4th Gear 83.5 111.4 139.2 167.1 194.9 200.5

3rd Gear 64.5 85.9 107.4 128.9 150.4 154.7

4th Gear 89.7 119.5 149.4 179.3 209.2 215.2

hopely this will solve my gearing problem at T3-4 and T15

so far so good, but my stack RPM decide to went bad at testing. so i cant really get any serious data from this testing plus there is way too much traffic

That might work for a time attack car, but it's a *terrible* idea for a road race car. Not to mention a safety hazard in the pits.

It's *WAY* more aggressive.

Race car aero needs to be able to survive going over a curb or running off the track.

what? no it doesn't. It just needs to be easily replaceable and not damage anything else WHEN that happens.

IE he destroys one in qualifying or practice, slaps a new one one for the race.

The track map posted earlier has a lot of of high speed sweeping turns so aero will play a huge advantage.

Time attack cars on Tsukuba run huge aggressive aero for that ONE long sweeper into the finish.

As long as this splitter balances out the rear wing he will be good.

I'm not saying it won't make the car faster.

I'm saying it's a bad idea for road racing. You shouldn't put things on the car that can be easily knocked off by other cars.

One of major problem here are how to get there to race track
At state is much easier , u borrow a trailer or buy one. Tow at ur own risk, which I been doing.for years which I really enjoy it
Not here
We need to use transporter, usually in 4 or 8 like the one in the pic
problem is ,those SOB treat ur car like ****. Dont mater if u pay them full or being nice to them , they are those moran u are hopeless to teach proper way
This time with new transporter company
sure enought my race car side skirt get crack, rear air jack get torn off
That is **** stubid if a they can torn off air jack when unloading.....

Dont mater if their boss will pay full repair bill
I rather not dealing with this
