HOW FD3S can keep up modern TCR race car at road race

Clocking personal best in Last round of Taiwan speed festival 2018, with 1.47.5
To put in compare Fasttest car that day is
Ferrari 488 GT3 drive by Austrian super car driver Tim Slade, with 1.36 right behind it is
Audi R8 Gt3 1.39
Right behind 2017 JAS motorsport Honda Civic TCR 1.45 drive by China GT champion
And Audi RS3 LMS TCR 1.47.1
Another civcic TCR with 1.46.6
I am right behind it with 1.47.5
I was so proud , I am the only privter driver
Who clocing this fast with manual(they all drive seq), and very mild tune engine(street port + GCG high flow stock twin)

Enough talk thats watch race from another TCR car behind
During the race with 200lb fuel and used tire I have hard time to defense my position, but still give TCR some hard time

SO cool and very impressive! Way to keep the platform relevant, well done! Have any footage from your own car by chance?

Seeing this and the and all the WTA FDs on Youtube, it amazes me how good this chassis still is compared to cars that are 25 years newer.

Might have got the continent wrong on Timmy...although that isn't the first and won't be the last time that will happen! The 488 exhaust manifolds alone are worth about 2 complete race FDs.

Probably a more comparable class is GT4 for these old bangers. Sounds like you're running more than 120 litres there too.

my class is ST- Turbo, I qualify first, but get pass,by 500hp ST 86 at straight

The 488 sure look and sound exotic !?
