  1. There will be a volunteer sign up page on MSR. It will go live same time as the student registration itself.
  2. what do the sidewalls look like? How far are you scrubbing? Have you played with air pressures? I would say stating that a specific camber degree "will work", isn't really helpful. It depends on many things including tires, brakes, suspension setup and most importantly, driving style. I would recommend getting a set of plates and do small adjustments at the track. As Roland suggested, for double duty street/track, going beyond -2 in the front may not be the best choice. This won't happen overnight and best to keep a log. that way if you move to the point where you don't like it,
  3. Thanks @SVOXR4STi. Yep seen "Jordan the welder" videos! Haha
  4. At least 1/2" inside and out, followed by acetone cleaning. Most definitely AC (70/30 Sine wave) I think the sugaring is actually the burning of the metal. Coarse grain structure.
  5. Hi Folks, Any experienced TIG welders in here? I am looking for help, advice or tips on welding thin wall aluminum intercooler piping. Anyone willing to show me what I am doing wrong? I know practice practice practice, but I can't get there to start. I have been wasting coupons and samples for months trying to figure this out. I am an experienced Stick and MIG welder (shamefully admitting over 30yrs worth) and TIG welding is kicking my butt. Haven't done any brazing since shop class in grade school! I looked at taking TIG classes at WT and RR, but it seems they require the MIG
  6. You can register for this event here! See you out there!
  7. Depends on how long ago you took the school. Things have changed a bunch in the past years and will change a bunch again in 2021.
  8. I have a lap video set up like that to be incorporated into the presentation for the next HPDE.
  9. I would integrate it. Open-air dumps have their own set of "challenges".
  10. This is a big issue for newcomers to our sport, and is one reason why i have a slide in my HPDE presentation that is dedicated to this exact scenario. Tune-in the loose nut behind the wheel, then figure out what to do next! I have no argument against it. There are many lessons learned to be found on this forum. @mcorrie is a regular reporter!
  11. Many "bolt-on" solutions make big changes and should be done incrementally. Many folks make two or three changes at once and can have a huge impact on the vehicle. Perhaps to the point where it's not drivable in it's new configuration. Now you need to work backwards to see what the culprit was.
  12. Yes! Basically 1mi flat-out! zoom-zoom. Watch the 130deg right-hander at the end!
  13. Road Race needed 20 entries to make it a go.
