      It's possible he had a lap belt only, and slid out from under it.

      His feet were out the window one full roll before it stopped. Amazing the car

      There's nothing wrong with your logs. As I said earlier, 3-5 degrees of pull or less is generally considered normal.

      That looks like a lot of timing pull, and it's not always when it's particularly hot.
      Look down at the pulls at line 2869 and 2905 with temps in the low/mid 80's.
      This is an engine that rarely...

      The block 31 values are as a ratio relative to stoic (14.7:1) so
      1.0 = 14.7:1

      0.9 = 13.23:1
      0.748 = 11.0:1
      and so forth. Really easy to convert in a spreadsheet.

      DTM kit uses an electronic boost controller (unlike most of their previous FT kits),
