  1. Hey Jack

    What Hancooks do you use?

    The 17) 200/610 or 215/615 - 18) 250/640 or 260/660?

      Anthony, I've gone with both combinations, i.e., 200 and 250, as well as 215 and 260.  I did try the 215/ 250 combination but didn't like the handling balance which resulted. 

      Both combos fit and worked well.  If you want to maximize the amount of rubber on the road, go with the 215s and 260's.  If you chose to go with the 260's, I would run a 5mm spacer. BOE has those for the rear...same fitment as the Evora.

      All the best!

      Hey Jack

      I got to the track Friday.  I pretty much had your setup you sent me.

      The car was nicely balanced, I didn't check heat across tires, but I might try 24 - 25 psi in all 4.  Maybe Summer in Florida.

      Anyway, the ABS cried uncle in the 2 corners I thought might be an issue.  (Hairpin, and 10 at Sebring) If I was driving competitively, It would definitely be a loss of time.  I had to start braking a touch earlier in those corners, and try to muscle memory the pressure I needed, not to exceed to the point.   Needless to say,  I will be in pursuit of the Bosch Racing ABS solution.  I don't have the AIM system installed yet as well, so being my non interested in my numbers self, didn't video or time my laps.  Eldon was curious, but I can estimate sub 2:20 laps without a problem. Back straight speed before turn 17 was 140.   I managed to pass a 458 Speciale, McLaren 650LT, 18 Porsche GT3 4.0, and Ferrari F8 Tributo.  Can't vouch for the drivers though.  

      Anyway, thanks for the valuable information, it really helped.

      You're welcome.....have fun.

  2. Thanks Eldon, and Jack. I guess it would be rational to connect my brake servo hose where my RH bank breather hose use to go, and block off where yours is currently blocked. Kind of interesting. My new Catch can will be coming this week. I am preparing the compartment, and trying to have a new air filter shipped from England in time to replace the large air filter box on the car now. There is also the fuel evap canister I will be taking off. I guess I will vent the gas tank line higher up in towards rear window. Thanks Again Anthony
  3. Hey Jack I'm still trying to find the last routing on the 4th line. Eldon mentioned he was trying to find out for me. I have the 2 head lines directly to can, 1 on duct to air intake capped, and the last is the line from the SC. He said it goes toward the front of car.

  7. Thanks Eldon My 2010 S240 that I tracked at Sebring, I had to make sure I used the Sector 111 pre track checklist every track day there. Was definitely tough on suspension. (Bumpy, but great track) I actually loosened motor mount bolts on the firewall, on bolt fell out, and other was hanging. I did buy a 2010 S260, and didn't track it. It definitely would be better, but it was 22 of 27, and couldn't bring myself to destroying it at Sebring. If I brought it to Daytona, it wouldn't have the legs. With the CUP 360, I have no excuse not to get to the track.
  8. I didn't record any lap-times. It was a weird track day with the Covid procedures, and me being by myself. My old S240, stock power, with slicks 2:25's. I took my stock Alfa Giulia QV with Carbon Ceramics to Sebring late last year. It was definitely faster. My friend rented the track, and I got Christian Fittipaldi to drive a few laps in my car with me in the right seat. He liked the torque, etc. He wasn't any faster than my lap times, so I had him pit in early so I would be able to enjoy the rest of the session. Anyway, entering turn 17 in the Giulia, I was hittin
