Lennym1984 Posted July 7, 2021 Share Posted July 7, 2021 What is the general consensus about revving all the way to redline on track (ie. doing it repeatedly)? Usually on track days I tend to shift up at around 6k RPM in order to preserve the engine. I'm doing track days for fun and so (historically) my logic has been that I am prepared to forego a few seconds per lap in return for treating the engine with a little sympathy. Now that my times are getting better (I don't do live timing before anybody complains) and I'm able to carry more speed through the corners, I'm left looking at my acceleration phase as a way to improve. The obvious solution here is to accelerate harder and forego the short shifting. The car is a Gen 1 2.7 with ~106k on the clock. Finally, if the person on here with the Silver Cayman S at Bedford on Monday wants a shoddy video of their car going round the track (I followed you for about 3/4s of the circuit), I have one!
