Evo Track Tips - Autobahn Country Club

Hoping to get some track specific evo-specific tips from guys who race on ACC a lot - mainly focused on the South and Full configurations (1st and 3rd below):



Hoping to get some tips on how to go faster here, what the proper line for the Evo is, and what varying levels of Evos (Stock, Mild prep, Full Prep, Race) should run on these courses.

My Evo is a mild (minor bolt ons + added boost, 265 RT615k+ on 18x9.5, coilovers + various bushings & drivetrain mods) should do on these courses.

For my first time on the "Full" course was ~2:53.
My fastest on the "South" was a 1:43.8, with stock level boost

I think the tires are killing me, curious to see how RE71Rs will do out here with my tweaked suspension

Full:

South:

Need to get some real data overlay showing throttle input. hard to critique with just video.

Turn 3 should be able to be taken flat if you set yourself up right.
4 is fast, don't over brake.
5 is early apex and carry speed through it. if your suspension is soft you can hit the inside curbing.
6- brake at the brake marker then turn in late, jump right back to throttle
7- flat
8- late brake and some what early apex.
9- early brake and hug the right and stay right.
10- all about the exit, make sure to set yourself up to get on throttle ASAP and STAY on throttle.
11- hard brake and cut the hell out of the right side. curbing is big, can almost get all 4 wheels on it.
12- flat
13- late brake and don't turn in too early. stay about a car length off the apex at 13. your real apex on this corner is 14. should be able to get on throttle right before 13 and flat to the finish.


Quickest lap to date. 1:22.7
Wasn't a good lap though, only got a few laps before the head started to lift.

Previous year lap-

thanks a ton - i'll rewatch the videos with your comments in mind.

i assume this have some variance depending on the tire and width you're on? i.e., street tires vs r comps?

posting all over, but hoping to get more tips here. ran about a 1:41.2 with the specs listed in the vid. still no data, but i think the run felt pretty good. got some time out of doing 6 better but i'd like to cut a bigger chunk of time.

Line looks pretty good for the most part. You can turn in earlier through 9 and 10 though and use the curbing more on 9, 10, and 11. I also think you can carry some more speed through 5. Other than that try getting your braking zones down pat.

so i tried carrying more speed through 5 once, and I wound up on the curbing, which was VERY bumpy for that exit. I backed off a bit and focused on powering out. 9, 10, 11 is tricky, i'm gonna focus on trying to get those right. will do on braking zones also, thanks!

hard to comment without knowing the track but one thing i did pick up on is that your trying to carry slightly too much speed into the corner. which is resulting in carrying too much corner speed and then your not able to apply the throttle as early as you could on exit. Try drop your entry speeds by like 5mph and get on the power earlier on exit.

This is hard to judge without seeing telemetry but just an observation to try. Again i may be wrong as its hard to judge from a gopro video without telemetry.

Your lines look pretty decent tho definately cant fault you on that. using all the track width when you can etc.
