Re: 2020 TT Season

I think lead follow could work for students, broken down into groups of three, with controlled passing after 3 laps to cycle the 'lead' student through the entire group. Any larger group than that and I am afraid it would fall apart for beginners. We would need loud walkies in each car, one-way comm...

Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

I run HP+ on my Datsun, which weighs the same as your Miata. Street and track, no fade issues on the track.

I've also run them on much heavier, and more powerful cars, and my NA Miata. I recommend them.

Re: Suspension advice

If the eLSD setup uses the brake controller to limit wheelspin, it's going to eat up your brake pads faster than a mechanical or viscous LSD, which don't employ the brakes at all. But if you have an electronically-controlled viscous clutch unit, this isn't your issue. Your pads were eaten up most li...

Re: Next year's schedule

I am also an arrive and drive member. As a counterpoint to the above statement, I regularly drive my 1970s era track car with no air conditioning to almost every track on the COM schedule, with the exception of Thompson as I noted above. Every American track on the schedule is 4 to 5 hour drive for ...

Re: Next year's schedule

I would also like to say that I do more events with COM than any of my Canadian clubs, because COM is head and shoulders one of the best organizations I've been on track with.

Re: Next year's schedule

As a Canadian who's been a member of COM for about a decade now (and who convinced my father to join too), I would love more events at NHMS because it's the closest US track for the two of us. Club Motorsport is also very close, although I understand the safety issues. I get to run Tremblant any tim...

It's in the registration - I missed it, and Mark hooked me up. Thanks!

Accomodations and garage at Watkins Glen?

Can I rent a garage space at WGI?

What's the best hotel to stay at near the track? It's my first time running there.

Thanks!

Re: First track tires

I like the NT01. You didn't mention what car these will be on - weight can make a difference in selecting a tire. I've run the NT01 on 3700 lbs car and a 2500 lbs car and it's performed well on both. I also drive the tire on the street. In the rain at Palmer last weekend, NT01 was not appropriate in...

Where to stay - Watkins Glen

It's my first time at Watkins Glen, and I'm curious as to what hotels are the best option in terms of proximity to the track. Any suggestions?
