Through a driving simulator I want to establish the fastest lap possible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here are the known variables,

Displacement=5866cc

Max. Power=892HP/9000rpm

Max. Torque=567ft-lb/7000rpm

Weight=1565kg (55% of the weight is in the front of the vehicle, leaving %45 to the rear)

Redline=9500rpm

RPM from TQ-HP=8190.2rpm

Tire Circumference=87.92in

Tire Diameter=28in

The track used is Daytona International Speedway(2.5miles in length).

The transmission adjustments I can make are to gears 1st-4th, and the Final Gear. So mostly I am looking to how I can optimally move this weight with this power and what gear ratios I would need to do that the best and being the fastest entering TURN 3 and crossing the flagstand. I can also make adjustments to the suspension. Ride Height, Spring Rate, Dampers(Extension/Compression), and Sway Bars, as well as Camber and Toe settings to hold the speed in the turns.

I would greatly appreciate any help, and maybe someone can make an equation that uses these variables so I could figure this out on my own for other vehicles available through the simulator.

I've seen guys reach speeds of 225mph entering TURN 3, and turning fast laps. My goal is to be superior to this statistic.
