    Hot Laps Discussion Forum

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

    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.

    BN 255-40-17 Tires and 17x9 Wheels

    four brand new, never mounted tires. 255-40-17 Nankang NSII-R (120tw) Purchased June 2017. $550 takes all four tires! Changed rim sizes and these won’t work for me anymore. Speaking of rims... Four brand new never used/mounted Konig Integram Wheels. Three of the four are still factory sealed. 17x9 +42 5x100 $650 for all four wheels.

    Sunday Time Attack

    The waitlist was due to a lack of transponders. Mat is working on a work-around for this and I've updated the number of transponders available.

    Custom alignment shop thread?

    Our club sponsor Speed Factor does custom alignments. Hopefully someone can chime in on their experience as I have none personally.

    budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    Should be close. If you get real energetic, you can swap out the 4.10 pumpkin for a 97-ish Kia Sportage front third member and upgrade to 4.71's I have a complete rear IRS from the supra already out of the car, and two others still in cars. The one you took the shocks/trans out of has the adjustable spring perches in it. Shoot me a text and we can discuss further. It won't be much.

    budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    A solid axle will be your best bet on a budget...both in dollars and time. A first gen RX7 rear axle would also be a Good swap with LSD and 4:10's out of the box. Correct bolt pattern too! (GSL-SE) For IRS, I'd suggest a MK2 supra rear setup. It's a simple mount and should be close in width. 4:30's and LSD standard equip on P-Type manuals. Not to mention I know where you can find both of those!

Lets see where this goes. I will be posting a workers/instructors registration form as well in the coming months. Let me know if you have any suggestions for this years school. Always looking for improvements. We must be on the right path as the response has been great and is increasing in demand! ***edit*** 20% sold! (11/16/17) 30% sold! (11/22/17) 4 spots left! (03/09/18) Sold out! (03/13/18)
  18. Hi Everyone, As usual, we are looking for instructors and track workers for the 2018 HPDE. If you wish to help out, please make your way to the volunteer registration page. We need at a minimum: 22 instructors, 16 track workers. So, we will be using the MSR page as record on who is coming to help out. The assumption is that if you are not on the MSR list, you aren't coming. There will be a meeting for all volunteers April 11, 2018 at Aaltos 826 Regent Ave. to discuss the 2018 changes and make any tweaks as necessary with the current program. Agenda to follow. Notes for instructors: When registering as an instructor, please ensure you provide your shirt size. We hope that with 22 instructors, that every instructor will have 2 students with a 25min break in between. All instructors: please apply for your instructor license on WCMA's official license page on MSR. If you are looking to instruct and have not done so in the past, please contact hpde@wscc.mb.ca to find out more info. If anyone has questions or comments, please don't hesitate to pass them on. We need your comments from last year to steer the 2018 HPDE in a better direction! You can either post your comments here, or email them to HPDE. Thank you! The HPDE Team

    Volunteers Needed for 2018 HPDE

    Just a reminder for folks that we need workers and instructors for this year's school. If you know of someone who wants to come and help but haven't signed up yet or doesn't know where to, please pass the link along and have them register! Instructors: we will most surely sell out and we still need a few more instructors to fill the quota. We also need instructors to sign up prior to end of March so we can order shirts!!
  20. Updated spots remaining! (4)
