Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

I run the HP+ on my Miata that gets street driven to the track. They work great for autocross as well. I’ve never had any issues with fade on track but it’s just a stock motor NA Miata so the car isn’t very fast or heavy. They work fine on the street (not scary when cold or anything like that) but t...

Re: Next year's schedule

I’m hesitant to jump into these because I know there is A LOT that goes into making the schedule that I am not privy to, and it’s not as easy as saying “here’s a great looking schedule; let’s do it!” But this is a good discussion and I wanted to throw my two cents in. -It’s OK to lose money at some ...

Tremblant Questions

A couple of questions for those of you who experienced Tremblant last year: -How was cell phone service at the track? Good? Bad? Nonexistent? -Are there any good areas for spectating? I couldn't really see any spectator areas on Google Earth or the videos I've watched. Trying to figure out if it's "...

Palmer Backwards

I've never driven Palmer backwards before. Does anyone have any videos to recommend that show an effective line around the track? Any tips or tricks to share? I was hoping that we might get an advanced coaching notes package but I haven't seen anything yet.

Re: Do 2018 rule changes reset all track records?

I read through the revised rule book this weekend and thought the changes were pretty minor; certainly nothing that would reset all the track records. I actually think most of the classes will be a little bit faster this coming year because the tire points went down for most people, so they'll be ab...

Wild Schedule Speculation

Based on the end of season newsletter, it sounds like next year's schedule is coming together very nicely. I'm intrigued by the talk of a 'VERY exciting" addition to the schedule. Anyone care to wildly speculate on what it might be? Lime Rock? Monticello? Pocono? A return to Club? So many great opti...

Rules Survey

I just wanted to throw my two cents out here on the first two questions in the rules survey that went out via email and I'd be interested to hear other people's perspective as well. I'll admit I'm a but biased because I street drive my car to the track, so I think that the "touring" classes should b...

Re: Watkins Glen: September 11-12, 2017 Event Info

I had to leave the Palmer event before trophies were handed out but I'll be at the Glen on Tuesday for Day 2.
Who do I need to hunt down at Watkins Glen to pick up my Palmer trophy?

Re: NHMS 2: June 24-25 Event Info

Thanks to everyone for another really great event!
I also wanted to say that as a member with a really long drive home, it was VERY nice to have trophy ceremony prior to having the open track time.

NHMS Configuration

I just registered for the October 9th Time Trial at Loudon....what configuration of the track are we using? As far as I can tell there are three different versions that the club has used but I can't figure out which version this event is using. I've never been to NHMS so I'll need to get some iRacin...

Thank You

Hi guys, Thompson was my first ever event with COM and I just wanted to say "thanks" for a great experience. I have done autocross and track days before, but this was my first opportunity to compete on track. Both days were incredibly fun, everyone was very friendly, and I learned a lot. I'll certai...

Thompson Event Schedule

Hi everybody! I haven't run any events with COM before but I am signed up for both days of the Thompson event (I'll definitely be at the first day; hopefully you'll have me back for the TT on the 2nd day) and I'm really looking forward to it. I think I've found everything I need to know from the web...
