Starting to get a better feel for the car, worked on a later apex on Turns 5, 7, 10, 13, 15 and 16, car seemed to like it, about a second quicker.

Tell us more, how did you like the A10 on the track? Is this a HP Mach 1 or non?
I thought the A10 was awesome when I had mine on the track last year!

The 10R80 works great, there isn’t a single point in the lap where it’s in the wrong gear. My other track car is a 16 Cayman GTS with PDK, the A10 is close.

It is a HP and I installed Steeda’s dual rate springs, 2 piece rotors and DTC70f/60r pads. Cup2 tires are great on the track.

Very nice! That's impressive that you're saying on par with the Porsche Auto.
Well have fun out there Greg! I hope to get mine on the track again this year too.

I did the first 2 track days without the Steeda dual rate springs and there was a bit to much movement in the car under braking and cornering.

Installed the dual rate springs and have done another two track days. Transitions are quicker and trail braking is more stable. Sebring is pretty bumpy in spots and Magneride pairs up well over those areas.

I drive to/from the track and I like the handling better on the road as well.

I can’t remember if you answered this in another thread but did you measure how much drop those springs gave you?

Steeda states 0.5” drop, here’s a pic of the lower splitter in HP configuration, ie, cup2 tires, after the spring install. I can convert my car to a non-HP configuration easily by removing the lower splitter and swapping wheels with PS4S tires for longer road trips, but I haven’t had any issues driving to the track that is about 120 miles away.

These dual rate springs are really engineered well, the car just doesn’t feel as heavy anymore.

Did you run any laps using the paddle shifters and how was the transmission temp holding up?

The only time I used the paddles was on the cool down lap to lower the rpm. Transmission (and engine & diff) were in the mid range but it hasn’t really got hot yet here.
