I searched but did not find, what are people doing time wise in their cars for trackdays?
Maybe we could get a thing going here with basic mods/tyres and times etc.

I'l go first.
7g Galant 6A12TT FWD - Federal 595RS-RR 235/45/17

Calder 1:17.1200 14/03/15 - Sandown 1:32.0556 04/10/15 - Phillip Island 2:00.8257 12/09/2015 Winton 1:47.3913 16/08/2015 Winton 1:46.5678 1/11/2015 (Natsoft)

Winton Raceway:
8G Galant manual street tyres Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 1:51.5407 1:50.7 (felt faster than the Legnum but had some temp issues couldn't push it) (second attempt had bad tyre issues! 6 year old street tyres aren't the greatest at the track!).
Legnum auto street tyres Bridgestone S001 1:50.1530

I'm booked in for Winton in a couple of weeks with the Galant now that I have a few more mods I'm looking forward to it.

At Winton today I got a 1:47.0417 on 5 year old used Z221 Hancook C30 (soft) 225/45/17 and 1:49.0284 on 5 year old Dunlop SP Sport Max 245/45/17. I'm sure there is still a lot more in it!

New pb for Winton 1:46.4272 but I'm not very consistent I need so much more practice.

Hey @Dice do you have anything on the track that has comparable times to the galant? Just interested to know what you're keeping up with

Cheers

You can check the times on natsoft.com.au with car types but faster than standard skyline gtst, mx5, 86/brz. Similar to r32 gtr, evo, 370z with crap drivers. Slower than s2000, evo, gtr, rx7 etc with a good driver.

Impossible to compare directly because each car has different mod levels.

Interesting and sorry for the necro, I manged a 1:47 in my FTO on RE003s and now have a track swift sport.

Ran a 1:50 in safe mode so severely down on power but heading back again soon, hoping for around 1:44-1:45.

Very keen to run the galant and see how it compares, doesn't handle as bad as I thought it would with coilovers, nothing like the swift though :p Also around 500kg heavier!

1:47 on average tyres seems pretty good.
