    Weekly Hotlap Challenge #221 - Toyota Tango and an Audi Spa day

    Car: Toyota AE86 and Toyota TS040 Hybrid 2014
    Track: Imola

    This week’s hotlap challenge will test your patience in more ways than a three year old! We’re gonna kill you with kindness, and scare you witless at the same time. It’s going to take a bit of patience and skill to wrestle the old street car around this circuit, so grab a drink or a smoke because you’ll have plenty of time for distracted driving on Imola. But on the flip side, you’ll be wishing for a little more reaction time between corners in the dedicated warp missile known as the TS040.


    I thought it might be fun to do a little compare and contrast between these machines. Although built for different purposes, they were built by the same company to do essentially the same thing - go fast. Yes they are both cars in the general sense of the word but they are about as far apart as two things can be and still be talked about in the same sentence. Marvel at what a load of time, technology, and a lot of money can accomplish.



    Imola is the track of choice this week as it seems to suit both cars the best. Not only was it an F1 track in a past life, its an accessible track to those of us who like to thrash our own street cars on open track days. Imola is the best of both worlds for this week’s challenge.


    Recommended tyre pressures for the Toyota AE86 street tires is 39psi. The 90's street tires are slower so don't use them lol.

    Recommended tyre pressures for the Toyota TS040 Hybrid are Undetermined at this time. In other words I don't know what they're supposed to be yet.

    RSR shows the top lap times are 1.26.954 for the Hybrid and 2.23.233 for the AE86.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





    Continuing with the "beat the pro" theme, but this week we are back in the GT4, targeting a 2:31:3 around Spa in the Audi R8 GT4, I've no idea how easy this will be as not had a chance to try it, but the video mentions the drivers is on used tyres, so we will compensate for this by setting the track conditions to "fast".

    @Pretend racer, sorry I forgot to change the track Grip Level to Fast rather than Optimum, could you amend the opening post? Thanks

    2:21 is easily possible, but I messed up mid sector a bit.

    Video will follow shortly.

    Toyota AE86, second car I owned as a youngster (my first was an XR3i) - had the number plate A141 CAN - the twin cam engine blew, con-rod straight through the side of the block! Oh to be 18 and have the 80’s back again.

    Ideal pressure for TS040 is 35 psi all around, all compounds.

    "Fast" track conditions might be too slow to get a 2:31 to be honest.

    Very different from the GT3 version. Needs lots of tweaks. Still working on it.

    Needed a lot of brake duct and pressure tweaks. Running front and rear ducts at 2. Pressures still not perfect but close.

    0 front bar. springs soft front, stiff rear. Not the best balance but it rotates. Some lift oversteer but its better than pushing like crazy imo.

    yeah sorry about that, didn’t have time to test, I worked on the basis that gt4s are usually around 10 seconds a lap slower that GT3s so it felt doable, but I forgot how long a lap of Spa is!

    No worries, i think the 2:33's will be the lowest for us. Which is still pretty quick!
