    Nothing is easy below 2:20. But with awesome tires it sounds very capable.

    They are a brick aerodynamically, its hard to say. I would expect low 2:20 as well. He has the experience with it that could take it under 2:20.

    The low weight is good in the corners, under braking, and for accel., but the power is really used for top end, and the MkII has similar CdA to an E36 or C5. Those cars are thoroughbreds and need to be well driven at 300HP to hit sub 2:20.

    He should do great on the brakes but armchair quarterback would expect better exit and much better top speed with the E36 and Vette. HP to HP, pound for pound.

    Previous best lap was about a 2:30.

    I'm thinking with double the HP maybe a low 2:2x. But until I figure out the tires, and the car with the new brakes and engine, it will be a bit before I realize its potential.

    GT for me, 2010 mustang GT, modded with stickers and a stripe, think I've got her maxed in the low 2:2X on a cold sunny day on NT-01s

    Haven't decided. I may run 4 races with the 300 and look for a driver for the other races ( GT2) in which the car placed 1st in 2016.
