    That's when it clicked for me. Whenever I was approaching anything at high speed, I was overcompensating on braking (party because there's so much more top end power than I'm used to) and wasting too much time and effort on it for corner entry. The second big left sweeper in the back was the biggest indication of this. I started leaning on the car more to just take the turn at those higher speeds and using the brakes less - focusing on them more to shift weight than to shave speed. It really worked. It was as if I re-discovered grip that was still on the table (another indication of how r compounds really hid my bad driving habits)
    Great advice - It's also more fun this way!

A few slow cool down laps brought temps right back down though, so maybe it won't be as bad on the track. But it was the first time I started to see the car get pushed that hard.
    What gauge are you referencing?

    Innovate Oil Press + Oil Temp gauge.

    My settings were this (I knew I would forget when I set them up, so I took a picture - yay me!)
