Judging by how well the Pedders Camaro did last year and looking at the data of their new coil overs, I bet the Camaro did a 1.33.6 and it was a half second faster than the Mustang.

I like this theory best

That little of a difference would speak highly of the rustang as well... bad as I hate to say it. (theoretically speaking)

I'm shooting for the Camaro. But power to weight make a difference.

Here is an update on the Theoretical Lap Times for both the Mustang and Camaro. We use our data logging software to cut and paste the best parts of every lap we ran for each car. This does two things. First, it is a measure of driver consistency. The closer the drivers Best Lap to the Theoretical Lap the more consistent the driver is. To be withing a second is good, under a second is better and under a half a second is beyond good. Second, this is a measure of the car and particularly the suspension. To be able to be consistent the car must be consistent. All a driver can ask of a car is to be stable and predictable. If the car delivers stability and predictability the driver knows what to do on every inch of the track. A really good car paired with a really good driver will deliver consistently good results. One is a measure of the other.

In the Camaro John was 3/10ths of a second slower in his Actual Lap Time compared to the Theoretical Best Lap Time.
In the Mustang John was 3/100ths of a second off in his Actual Lap Time compared to the Theoretical Best Lap Time.

This is another way of saying the same thing. Our DRIVER and our CARS were almost PERFECT.

John and the Mustang WERE perfect to be 3/100ths of a second apart in Actual vs. Theoretical Lap Times.

So if a perfect driver could drive 10/10ths for a full lap, he drove a 9.7/10th and a 9.97/10th? He's good!

Stan, Chris and John are all race buddies. One of these days we'll have to hold an event with all three track-side. They are ALL excellent drivers. They are all quality people. I am proud to be associated with them.

If it's an open event and I'm in town, I'm there!

You know why he deserves the nickname, right? He posted a vid drifting a GTO over a blind hill at speed ... Does he always drive like that? If so, I wanna ride a lap with him!

Yep.





Chris is the most gifted drive by the seat of his pants driver I know next to Paul Tracy. Stan and John are far more calculating. They are all fast in different ways. I wouldn't want to bet on the winner for anything of substance in a race between these three.
