Re: Returning to COMSCC

There's no reason you can't run a stock GTI. The major weakness is the ones without PP because the e-diff cooks the brakes. You have the LSD with the PP so you're solid.

I tracked a mk6 for a couple years when i first moved to Boston and had plenty of fun smoking the waxers in BMWCCA :lol:

Re: Thompson Turn 6

I guess the first step would be to determine if it truly is an anomaly. I'd love to see data on "offs with impact" for various tracks and the turns on them. I doubt its available. It could just be rumor and confirmation bias, but it sure seems like cars hit there a lot. At the SCCA TTNT a couple wee...

Thompson Turn 6

I don't think i've ever heard of a specific turn more notorious for eating cars and it's been this way for years. What could the track could do to clean that area up and make it safer? How can the track be pressured to do so?

Re: Harness // rollbar options

I have two buddies with RX8s that have gone through four motors between them. I'd budget in that LS1 swap from the start. :twisted:

After i sold the E36 i considered an RX8 project for a bit. It's a fantastic chassis.

Re: Bringatrailer.com experience?

Most cars seem pretty overpriced on there. If it's anything remotely common, i'm sure you could find a better deal elsewhere.

Re: Club data log share?

In my opinion, we should keep it as simple as possible, at least to start. What if the Admin backed up the Google Drive to their own machine every so often, so that if someone came and deleted files, they could easily be restored? So crazy simple it might just work! Derek or whoever owns the comscc...

Re: Club data log share?

Any interest in looking at the Track Attack option with me? Has anyone tried it? Seems like it's built to solve this problem. That's an interesting product. They're doing some of the things like multi-platform integration and leaderboards that Race Capture is working on. I used to use the Autosport...

Re: Club data log share?

The problem with giving the public upload perms is that that also gives them edit/delete permission. Even with a private link to the share, its basically public to the world and anyone could delete all our stuff. The other permission option is "view" (read-only, not upload/write), at least with goog...

Club data log share?

Hey all, Me and some other guys have been sharing our Aim data logs to compare our driving. It's very helpful. Maybe it'd be cool to organize a way to collect/share data as a club? I currently use a dropbox share, but we could put it in google drive alongside our class sheets or something. We have s...

Re: Suspension advice

Cool, the VAQ diff is very good so you're set there. My issue was just that, a lack of mechanical LSD resulted in EDL using the brakes to limit wheel spin. I once cooked DTC-60s so bad i blew T1 at NHMS and went up the oval. I had so much smoke billowing out of the wheel wells the corner workers ran...

Re: Suspension advice

What year/generation is it? I tracked a Mk6 for awhile. The biggest issue i had was the EDL destroying the brakes. If yours doesn't already have one, a real mechanical LSD would be mod #1.
