Cali T no slouch at the track -- COTA

I did the Owner Lapping at COTA on Sunday after the Ferrari Challenge was done. The car hit 156 on the back stretch and handled really well with the HS package. A friend who was watching said the car sounded great going by on the grandstand stretch.

There were a lot of 488s out there and on the back stretch when we accelerated out of the corner and I was behind one of several, they didn't pull away until over 120. My car hit 156 on the back stretch and I still braked at the 300 marker. If I was trying to push it, I would brake at 225-250. My 991 TTS modded with 725hp only hit 162 on the back. The horsepower the car has on the top end is where I think the difference is.

Anyway, now I have enjoyed my Ferrari at the track. I can tell it's not as fast as the Porsche other than at the top end, but I think it does hang tight in the curves better. I was carrying more speed into all of the technical turns than I did with the Porsche. The hairpin curves were about the same.

Let no one tell you the Cali T is slow or not a track car, it does just fine. I also found the LEDs on the wheel to be very helpful when shifting but even so, I still managed to hit the rev limiter a couple times.
