I imagine Adam held back at least 1/2 sec if not more being it wasn't his car. On a proper track, I'd be surprised if the S2 does not dip into 12s.
Oh, I wasn't holding back. But with a total of 30 seconds and 100' of seat time in the S2, I just sucked. I'm no pro and I need practice too!
One of my best excuses for not going as quickly as I hoped was the 3.45 gears that Angelo and I both have. With zero traction conditions, getting away on stock gearing or less (Rob) resulted in much less wheel spin.
And if my stock M5 with only the Shark Injector tune can go 12.92 on Nexen street tires, an S2 in the same conditions has to good for sub 12.5 runs.
