  2. Ford LeMans Driver: Billy Johnson's new YouTube Channel: "One Lap Billy"

    Pretty much every GT3RS & GT2RS I've seen at the track have their wings at the minimum angle and dont remove the front diffuser air dams, which would give the car more front downforce. Most owners aren't aware they are adjustable. Hopefully this video will spread awareness and more people will...
  3. Ford LeMans Driver: Billy Johnson's new YouTube Channel: "One Lap Billy"

    Check out my review and first laps in the 991.2 GT3 RS, Data Analysis of the GT3 RS & Lap Time/Data Analysis compared to a McLaren 720S:
  4. Track Days and Tires

    When driven at the limit, the life expectancy of almost any tire in a high hp car is ~250-350 track miles; or 1-2 days. When driving well below the limit, you'll start to see certain tires lasting longer than others. 0.02
  5. Flat shifting is pretty slick!

    It was fun working on the "NLS" programming that ended up in the Mach 1. I must say it's probably the best/smoothest/smartest "NLS" system of any car that i've driven. Glad to hear you guys are enjoying it.
  6. Pilot Super Sport vs Sport Cup 2 - Advice Needed

    Treadwear ratings are USELESS. Read this article, specifically the section in UTQG: https://motoiq.com/how-to-properly-select-and-size-tires-for-performance/ Michelin changed the UTQG of the new Cup 2 to 240. They can list pretty much any number they want on any tire. The GT350 Cup2 was a...
  7. Pilot Super Sport vs Sport Cup 2 - Advice Needed

    It will not have the bmw or Mercedes markings on it. Better yet, get the new FP Cup2. It's about as good as the bespoke PSS in deep water, it's stickier in the wet, and significantly better in the dry. And it's easy to make sure you got the right tire.
  8. Pilot Super Sport vs Sport Cup 2 - Advice Needed

    IIRC, there is only one 305/35-19 PSS, which is the bespoke GT350 rear. There are multiple 295/35-19 PSS tires so it's important to order the correct GT350 front tire, not the BMW or Mercedes version. Its easy to order the wrong tire, tire rack or whatever tire store you buy tires from order...
  9. technical questions - GT350R CF Rims

    1 - if you hit something hard enough to break a CF wheel, you'll also break a AL wheel, but the CF wheel is more expensive. 2 - the resin would get too hot and start deflecting, losing some of the stiffness advantage it has over AL wheels. If you're really interested in the tech behind the...
  10. Pilot Super Sport vs Sport Cup 2 - Advice Needed

    The bespoke OEM GT350 SuperSport is significantly stickier than an off-the-shelf SuperSport, and closer to a standard Cup 2 in this regard. The bespoke OEM GT350 Cup 2 is similar to an off-the-shelf Cup 2 in terms of grip, but not as aggressive or sticky as the bespoke GT350R Cup 2. If you're...
  11. Alternative Tires for GT350

    285/30-19 & 305/30-19 Conti Extreme Contact SPORT is another option. 10.2" & 10.9" treadwidths would fit perfectly on 10.5 & 11" wheels.
  12. 2020 GT500 results from Car and Driver Lightning Lap 2021

    Lap 1 on a new set of tires is often over 0.5 seconds faster than lap 2. That 3,000lb McLaren in my YouTube Channel video slowed down by 3 seconds over the day, from new tires in the am to the heat of the day and older tires in the afternoon. So 5 heat cycle old tires don't tell you much...
  13. Ford LeMans Driver: Billy Johnson's new YouTube Channel: "One Lap Billy"

    I've thought about having videos with driving tips and providing further insight on different car/driving related topics on my channel, other than videos of what times I can lay down for the first time driving various cars. I might do that in the future if there is a demand for these types of...
  14. 2020 GT500 results from Car and Driver Lightning Lap 2021

    Yes both the GT500CFTP & ZL11LE are second(S) faster when a pro is behind the wheel, but the gap between the 500 & LE is much larger than 0.4 seconds. I cannot disclose that confidential information, but if I get an opportunity to publicly drive them (maybe for my new YouTube Channel: "One Lap...
  15. 2020 GT500 results from Car and Driver Lightning Lap 2021

    Yes it was only 0.4 seconds faster than the ZL11LE with amateurs driving, turning times second(S) slower than what the car is capable of. The actual difference in abilities between the two is much larger than that.
  16. Ford LeMans Driver: Billy Johnson's new YouTube Channel: "One Lap Billy"

    Hey guys, I just started a YouTube channel: "One Lap Billy". A brief background on myself: I raced the #66 Ford GT at LeMans from 2026-2019, I was a development driver on the Ford GT, GT350, GT500, and various other cars, 2016 IMSA GS champion in the GT350R-C. You can read more about me on my...

    It's faster than a Z06 for the same price. ZR1s cost more.
  18. 2020 GT500 hot lap time from Laguna Seca [Motortrend]

    I'm not sure about 'more' prevalent on the west coast. Most tracks can vary over 1 second over the course of the day. Especially VIR. That's why I don't put much value on most of these journalist tests and 'competitions'. That day was nuts at Chuckwalla. I was the first car to drive on the...
  19. 2020 GT500 hot lap time from Laguna Seca [Motortrend]

    I always double apex. It can be just as fast and sometimes faster than a long, late, single apex because you can brake later and cover less distance. Comparisons are pointless unless they are done back to back on new tires. Not in the morning vs afternoon, let alone different days. That...
