When you see the speed graph square off at the top, that's a sure sign of boost. ;)

Am I correct that the 2015 Porsche runs a different KERS capacity at (i think) 8 megajoules where the Audi etc are in the 4 megajoule category so the Porsche can deploy more Thor power for longer per lap? #continues to dig for more excuses ahead of Tuesday....*

Going on the practice server times Grat is going to walk over us  :-[
Grat is getting huge speed down the straights compared to me. More boost? Less wing?

Maybe skipping the chicane in the back straight?

Could well be. Bacchulum and diehard still have to find 4+ seconds of MJ somewhere in their Porsches.

This is true, I believe.
But this is countered by fuel flow restrictions (not Wally's), weight and tank size.
I don't think it will work out to "more Thor power for longer per lap" but the same for more time or more for the same time.
