    Towing Info

    I came across this and thought it was a fantastic initiative by the Police Service in Halton, ON. It would be great if the Winnipeg Police could do this. It says "commercial motor vehicle and trailer" but it does apply to anybody that tows a trailer and race car trailers count! Does anybody know a Winnipeg Police employee or if there is a way to ask them??

    2018 Spring/Summer Drive

    We didn't really stop much, to be fair. We pretty much nailed it right to Westhawk Lake. And once we got there, a couple of the guys had to immediately book it home. My wife and I snapped a few of just ourselves and the BMW in front of the lake, but I don't imagine anybody cares to see those.
  4. We need you there by 8 Saturday morning instead of the usual 9 o'clock meeting as we want to do a bit of training. Scott McDonald, Chief Marshal

  9. Yeah, does not always work out but for those interested, it is a 2-day event and Stephen Hui (who re-located from Seattle a couple of years ago) is doing the course design....be interesting to see what he does. And, also, I realize this is short notice and this is due to my own "busi-ness" ... not good but it is what it is.
  10. Liam is looking for a codrive for the morning session at Gimli. He isn't on the forums much so let me know if you have anything available. For those that don't know him, he is my son and can drive. He has driven my Vette and his Corolla previously so pretty much any drive layout works for him. He may not be able to coach you, but he will definitely get your tires warm. He does have a ride for the afternoon/evening session, so only the morning event on the skidpad is needed for him to get me to pay for his gas to/from the event....lol. Let me know if you have something available and I will let him know. FWIW he did beat me in my car once. Cheers

  12. Curtis, It appears that your experience trumps theory every time. I did a little deeper digging into the results of the last 21 events (2017 - till present) and came up with an average count of 8.5% for DNF's. Highest DNF score was last year's May 27th event at Gimli. Lowest DNF score was 1.6 % at St. Andrews Aug 26th event. Cone counts averaged out to 50.6%. Highest cone score was a whopping 80.2% at Aug 20th event at Gimli. Lowest cone score was 25.7% at St. Andrews May 12, 2018 event. I guess it makes sense that the highest DNF and cone counts were at Gimli skidpad … lack of being familiar with the course?. Speaking of Gimli, which is coming up this weekend, I wonder what kind of course design Shawn will come up with? I have this sinking feeling that I will be contributing heavily to both the cone counts and DNF's.
  13. Tim, Your comments are well received and that's exactly the kind of feedback we're looking for so that we can make improvements in the future. It's ironic about your reference to Roger Johnson's Course Design, because this is just the kind of thing Shawn is trying to drill into my pea-brain. In previous course layouts I've asked Shawn or Helix if the finish is too fast, but they're quick too point out that you don't want a last element maneuver to slow the car and inevitably upset the car balance at the most critical time when needing to keep the car under control. Not sure how this nasty pinch slipped by us on the course test drive. It's possible that we might add Event #3 course design to our library for possible re-use in the future. That's assuming we can tweak the start and eliminate the pinch at the finish and adjust the previous elements as you suggested. Thanks again for your help!
  14. What ... no pictures?
  15. Last week
  16. Last year was a ton of fun. Fun lot, lot's of competitors. Too bad on timing
  17. Posting for our friends in Calgary: The first WCMA regional is on June 23/24 ... a little over a week away! Are any of you interested? Spread the word? Stephen Hui, recently moved from Seattle, is doing the course design so it should be good. Cheers, Reijo Silvennoinen

    They are track pads, but they aren't as aggressive as Hawk Blues for example, but more aggressive and heat resistant than HP+.

    2018 Spring/Summer Drive

    Why don't the Cars & Coffee guys ever come out with their Lambos and Ferraris? Perfect time for them to open up those cars.
  20. Ok. I'm geared up to go. Hopefully we get a few more interested parties in the next day. So let's meet at the usual Canadinns at plessis and regent at 11:30 on Saturday the 16th and leave at noon. We'll head out on Dugald to Elma And from there into the whiteshell. Should be a scenic drive. We'll stop for ice cream in brereton and back in the city for 4:30 or 5 latest See you there
  21. I'm in. I wrote it down on the family calendar, so it's 'in stone'.

    Event #3 Jun 10, 2018 Feedback

    @Weebly Yes, line selection allows different entry and exit options and it can and has been done at St Andrews. As for the pinch at the finish, in the Roger Johnson course it was mentioned that if you want to slow cars down, think two elements ahead of where you want them slowed. Don't try to slow them where you want them slow. This course violated that. You wanted to slow them at the finish, so a pinch was put at the finish to slow them down. Instead, slow them down coming from the pivot and straighten out the finish. For instance (and hindsight is 20:20 I know), come out of the south pivot, keep us closer to the west side, don't bring us to the center, then bring us east and straight to the finish. You slow us down on the west to east part and not right at the timing lights. Make sense?

    Thanks for the recommendation. Street car yes but I'm okay with getting some dedicated pads for the track that I can swap in/out.

    Assuming this is a street car, we have had great service from EBC yellows. They take heat well, dont fade easily and have reasonable street manners without noise. I've used them in door to door racing too with predictable performance.
  26. Looking forward to hearing more about this group trip. I would likely volunteer to marshal if it all works out. Dates are Aug 24-25

    Hot Laps Discussion Forum

    Bumping an old thread. Looking for some information on brake pads for hot lapping. Picked up an Integra Type R which I plan on autocross with and doing some hot lapping. I've had Hawk HPS pads on my old GSR and they were great at autocross but I have no experience with hot lapping a lighter car and I don't think the HPS would hold up. My only lapping experience was my STI hatchback on the factory brembos and they seemed to hold up fine during HPDE but I did get them to smoke on the second day. Hoping to get some recommendations from the guys that run lighter cars (integras, civics, miatas, ect) and what would be enough for Gimli. Based on forums, some owners say the Hawk HP+s worked for them while other Type R owners seem to be recommending the Hawk HT-10s or the Hawk DTC-60s. Car will get stainless steel brake lines, ATE Type 200 fluid, and will be on high performance summer tires (re-71r or similar). Thanks,
