  • What gears did you tackle LS in?

    Just curious to see what other S2000 drivers were doing around Laguna. I'll post mine carpal tunnel is acting up.

    What gear were you in in each turn?

    If I remember right, this is how it went...
    2nd gear turns: 2, 8, 11
    3rd gear turns: 3, 4, 5, 6, 8a, 9, 10
    4th gear turns: 1 & 7, though 4th was also used between 4-5 & 5-6.

      At the end of the day I was doing turns 2, 5, 10 and 11 in second, and flat out in fourth through 1. All else in third. I was doing turn 4 in second early in the day, but doing that in third helped being smooth out of the turn and didn't seem to kill my speed at the braking point for turn 6. I tried the top of the Corkscrew in second a few times, but had to shift when coming out of 8B. Downshifting into second in turns 2 and 6 was fun. I was starting the shift when the speedo was reading 70, and prayed that it wasn't going to over rev. I think I was re-engaging the clutch at 55-60 mph.
