LOL. TKE-Teg Getting us black flagged :p PUT YA WINDOW DOWN YA NUT!

I'll upload my vid later.

Civic was giving you a run for your money in the corners, but you were reeling me in with your 10mph+ faster straightaway speed

November PCA event at VIR is the next event for me White Solo is so much fun.

2 day school is pointless. it costs basically as much as the 3 day school.

1 day or 3 day is the smart money. I don't know what I'd do with a race license at the moment, though...I wouldn't be able to race enough with it to keep it active, I don't think.

Two day event at NCCAR on August 3/4 with TSCC. Anyone going?

Never been to NCCAR before - Interested in its utility as a setup tuning facility. I have 2 sets of shocks, Two rear sway bars, and a new spring setup to dial in over the weekend.

I really wanted to go, but I have family business to take care of that prevent me from going...

August 17th, TKE-Teg and I will be doing a Karting Enduro @ VIR (if the poor guy can stop hurting himself)

I think VIR will be the next event, perhaps this November... Haven't decided which PCA club to run with yet.

NCCAR can be okay for tuning set up. As to the track itself, I'm not a fan.

VIR in November for sure!

What pads are preferred nowadays for a street/track driven car on R-compound rubber?

Do you guys use any whiz-bang rotors, or just cheap blanks from NAPA or RockAuto or whatever?

I use OE or brembo rotors. I tried the cheap ones like napa that weren't OE and they cracked really quick

^^not sure I understand the question.

Are you talking about dual use? street and track use for one set of pads? Because I would not recommend that. That being said I use Carbotech's street pads on the street. They've got great feel, low dust, and look like good life (superior to OEM Porsche pads in all ways). Though they were pricey, around $400. On track I use Pagid Yellows - RS29. They have outstanding track life, though granted I have yet to use them on anything more aggressive than 300 TW tires (will change next weekend).

For rotors I switched from OEM Porsche drilled rotors to Sebro slotted rotors. Great reviews by other track people and should have longer life than the OEM drilled ones. About 30% less expensive too.

Nice, after running nothing but E30s and E36s for the past 15 years, i recently got a 981 Cayman S. I just swapped on the X73 sport suspension kit and GT3 front LCAs to get some proper camber. I can't wait to see how it does.

I live in Boston now so track season starts up again in.. April. I run with a club that does a time trial event which is fun.

And me and some dudes have an E30 Lemons project as well. Did the 24 at CMP last year and got hooked.

just mounted RE-71Rs on my FR-S, and aligned it to -3 camber on the front, -2.5 on the rear. Zero toe front, 1/16" in on the rear.

^^Very nice!

^good move

Looks like CMP is being repaved this summer. And Roebling Road wants to repave in the near future (currently raising funds). Great news for both tracks.

Frozen Frenzy is in just over 2 weeks! And with the type of winter this area has been experiencing, it's more likely to be the Wet/Humid Frenzy

I was gonna go with NT-01s, but the RE-71Rs were on sale to the point that they were, I don't know, prob 30% cheaper or something like that. I figured it was worth trying them, and then doing NT-01s next time.

Think those alignment settings are too aggressive, or good?

Those alignment settings are probably fine, WRT to tire wear. Handling characteristics, I couldn't really say.

Right now on the Cayman I'm running -2.2° F -2.4° R with zero toe. I'm not particularly happy about having more rear camber, but at my car's current ride height (roughly 1.25 inch lower than stock) there's no way to reduce rear camber from where it is without adding in toe (which would shred my tires in no time). And front camber is maxed out. I need to buy some adjustable rear toe links. Tarett ones are like $400 I think.

Congrats, welcome to the 981 club! I love my 981 CS but am giving her a break from the track this year to focus on our Honda Challenge car, but pls to share your susp/alignment setup after you've done some days.

So we will be giving Frozen Frenzy another go this year, despite the weather debacle last time around. Not sure if you heard, but last year's event was a total rain-out. They were skeptical but kept the event a "go" until mid-day Saturday when they deemed the track unsafe and cancelled the event after a car hydroplaned and hit a worker station. Was a bummer all around, but it ended up not mattering to us because the EF-H22 sprung some major exhaust leaks that pushed our tune out of whack, so I spent most of the day at the tech shop down the road from VIR getting some welds done. Hoping for a much better experience this time around...

We should try to bump into each other then! I'll be the black 987S in Blue Group, with blue painter's tape numbers - #8.


Signed up two weeks ago for a Summit Point event the first weekend in June. Shenandoah configuration. With Potomac Region PCA. Looks like a lot of fun.
