Re: best compact lightweight Al floor jack for track?

Tanks for replies erry body! I have a jack at home (the big/heavy Al/steel thing I bought), so a low-$$ small lightweight HB jack is what I need for trips to the track. See y'all in 10 days!

best compact lightweight Al floor jack for track?

I stupidly bought a heavy and bulky steel/aluminum jack from PepBoys. Funny, the box seemed small and light, but jack itself big and heavy!

Is Harbor Freight still the best for reasonable-$$$, compact, lightweight jack?

TIA!

Re: PRICE DROP - 2017 BRZ Limited

Testimonial: I LOVE my '17 BRZ PP (same car)! Favorite car overall that I have owned, including 3.1-liter 240Z, S2000, and 550hp FD RX-7.
Have you put it on ft86club.com?

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, ...
