Re: A new section for 1 lap video pointers?

As I reread your post... Obviously YT is the place. The club has a share drive. The same one we use to store the classing sheets. I can create a folder, but we need a NEW body to own the effort. When I say own the effort, I mean all the maintenance, managing the content, and linking in with our othe...

Re: A new section for 1 lap video pointers?

Are you asking if COM can host and manage the video? I'd rather not do that. We already have a dozen or so different paths of communication that require bandwidth/maintenance. It would better to to create a sticky here and post links to YT or Vimeo vids.

Hi There,

If you have earned a competition license with us in the past, it should not be an issue. You can drop a comment in your registration to that end, or if you like to arrange a lead-follow to get reacquainted.

Re: Mazda ND Transmission Fluid Recommends

I have a very un-scientific method for this. Pull the plug. If what comes out is reddish, I go with Redline D4 ATF. If what comes out is amber brown, I go with the Ford stuff.

Re: Racing Brain

Graham, that's a good one.

I think in all this time the thing I have sort of developed is spotting other driver's behavior and having an ad hoc predictive model that runs in my head calculating all of the stupid shit they are about to do.

....especially the Camrys, CRVs and RAV4s

Re: Watkins Glen 2020

Yes. This sucks. A lot. Camping there is part of experience.

I would not plan on the policy at WGI changing for the rest of their season regardless of the state guidelines. Those folks have always done their own thing.

Re: A7 vs. R1-S?

I've run them both on the #5 car. The R1S wants load. It wants a heavier car than the Hoosier of the same size. I look at in very simple terms. Car weighs above 3k...R1S. Car weighs below 3k, A7, or R1S of narrower width. Dan, for your driving style, I'd go R1S of the narrower width, assuming you ar...

Set of RE71R Lightly Used 245/40/17

Set of RE71Rs that I used for all rain sessions but one last year at Tremblant. I'd say they have 75% of tread remaining. Currently on 17x9 5 x 114.3 ET 45 Enkei RPF1 wheels, which you can use, but I want back.

Contact me over the mobile app for pictures.

$300

Sold: FatCat FCM Elite Bilstein coil overs for NC MX5

475 front, 350 rear coils, custom valved. The shocks were completely rebuilt prior to the 2018 COM season, and the right front was replaced completely. I won two class championships on this set up, (paired best with Hoosier/BFGs) and there was quite a lot of investment over time to dial them in. All...

Re: Federal Tires

The key here was already mentioned. The Federals, and most of those mid range wear rate R compounds tires need load to work. An atom weighs about as much as lawn lower, so it isn't a very good test of a tire meant for street cars. MArk, I recall you going through this tire size vs amount of load thi...
