Re: A7 vs. R1-S?

The die is cast! A7s... I realized I can't run 245s due to clearance issues (drawback of saving a single point by running stock-diameter lowering springs vs. height-adjustable coilovers!), cuz 245 R1S and A7 are like 260-265mm wide! So 225s. And A7s come in 225/40-17, 23.8" diameter, 1/2-inch lower ...

A7 vs. R1-S?

How do these compare in terms of relative lap times vs. number of heat cycles? Other options?
I'm *thinking* about getting a set of real tires and "classing up" :P Probably only use them for 6 - 10 heat cycles this year...

Re: Palmer Motorsports Open Track May 29th

From the Palmer site it looks like 29th track day is cancelled? Or did it just fill up?

Re: 2020 TT Season

I won't support in-car instruction until a vaccine is widely available and the protocol is reinforced by VERY reliable source documentation. The same goes for live indoor activities....classroom, awards....etc.. That doesn't mean we can't have events, and it doesn't mean that we can't compete. In f...

Re: 2020 TT Season

Depends on how the situation evolves, but it looks to me like if we are going to have events at all, they should probably be without students/instructors in cars together. Maybe we could just run with no students/instructors, no newbies, but allow non-licensed drivers who have been signed off to sol...

Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

I ran HP+ a few times on the S2000. Great bite! but lotsa corrosive stubborn black dust and lots of squealie noise on the street... That was a while back, may be a new formula by now... Carbotech XP8 and XP10 pads always seemed to have good cold bite on the street for me. I ran them on 240Z, S2000, ...

Mont Tremblant, stricter/closer noise-measuring

I posted up on a Porsche forum regarding Mont Tremblant event, and got this info: Sound restrictions have not changed (92dB) at LCMT but measuring methods would have changed significantly this year! Stricter enforcement of the 92dB (overzealousness) combined with a number of additional measuring dev...
