Unplugged P3D vs GT3 RS

Given that I do have a heavily modded P3D with Unplugged suspension, BFB brake kit, track wheels with 315's, etc.. ). I think I could hang with a GT3 RS. I have found myself tracking with these guys on multiple occasions. Turns seem to be no issue and I can actually put pressure on them. The problem is top speed! They pull away on straights! If I can get more downforce for the long sweepers and perfect my lines for good track out speed, it could be close! What do you guys think?

The Model 3 handles exceptionally well. There isn't much I cannot hang with in the turns. Straights over ~110mph are a problem. But, the bigger issue is the overheating drivetrain. I go from hanging with GT3's and GT4's to the car falling on its face and going into "Miata Mode".

Miata Mode should be a thing of the past as more aftermarket cooling solutions come into play. I'm not sure how much this will help those of us without Track Mode's cooling features, but for the Performance it looks like help is on the way!

Looks like the battery is possibly limiting you. I heard UPP was doing some experimental cooling.

Yeah I was definitely limited at this point. 4th lap in on a 2.5mile track.

Unplugged has really incredible cooling solutions they are developing. Can’t wait for them to release those products!
