  1. Haha that was a fun event...I think that was the only time in WSCC history that a car made more tire noise than Barry's old Acura...

  3. Well that was a fun night of bumper cars!! We got to run into somebody interesting that wasn't racing with us too. Patrik Laine was out for a family night of karting with his parents and sister, so that was a cool surprise too :-)
  4. Hmmm i think i can try to make it out!
  5. My 2017 plans are as followed - SHOW UP!!! - Working with Turner and Apex to understand what i need to buy to fit 18x9.5" rims under the car with 265/285 staggared RE-71R tires (currently 17x9 with 255's) I have the power, but need the grip! - Replace the brakes so the brake wear indicator goes away - Fix the miss fire that happens when the car isn't fully warm and you use WOT
  6. From my experience with swapping pads your fine as long as you don't have rotor warp or grooved up rotors. But you don't want bed them in on your first lap since they need to go through a cooling cycle so that the film of pad gets attaches the rotors (thus race cars do "installation laps" with new pads). I would put my pads on at home, and drive out normally. Then after filling up the tank in gimli i would do 5x 50-10km hard brakings then 5x 80-20km before pulling into the track (don't full stop). then during the whole registration process the rotors have the time to cool down. I just make a conscious effort not to hold pedal down when i come to a full stop or use the e-brake once parked otherwise you cook the pad to the rotor. Same process as when you finish your laps though.
  7. These were my favorite pads when i was running the TT. HP+ required 1 throw away run by a co-driver and bit possibly a bit harder, but ate rotors and squealed worse than a city bus on that car. These didn't make the noise, didn't have the required heat up phase, but had a bit more fade when I lapped at Gimli (so i bought Hawk Blue's for that and swaped) Carbotech™ AX6™ The AX6™ is specifically engineered for Autocross applications. A high torque brake compound delivering reliable and consistent performance over a very wide operating temperature range of 50°F to 1000°F + (10°C to 537°C+). The advanced compound matrix provides an excellent initial bite, high coefficient of friction at lower temperatures along with very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics. Many drivers use the AX6™ for street driving as well, even though Carbotech™ doesn't recommend street driving with AX6™ due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise. AX6™ is NOT recommended as a race compound in most applications.

  9. Maybe a bit late, but HPI customs in Beausejour made up these trophies for a car show in LaSalle. We are not hot rod people exactly, but they might be interested in doing a little bit for the WSCC in trade for some adverting or something. I know the owners brother a bit and could ask...

  10. The map would be a very helpful tool as well to talk about key cones, and some screen shots from an incar could be printed and posted at each element to show where the car location was while going past said element to see car positioning. (sounds like arts and crafts now) this can help instructors afterward discuss specific and draw out where the differences were. As for video, a decent computer monitor works, but the issue is glare from the sun. could be as easy as posting a youtube link to all the school participants from an instructors in-car camera when they they set up the course. Then everybody can view to their hearts desire on their own mobile phone while siting in their car prior to their run. could hand the link out at the event so people still get their walk through to learn the course. Just some thoughts that's all!
  11. That doesn't look fun at all...
  12. I just want to say thank you to the instructors and organizers of the school! everything went off without a hitch and i think everybody had an amazing time. Was a lot of fun working the course and watching people at the beginning of the day improve so much to the last. .... If i could make ONE suggestion would be that it would be amazing if you could have a video playing of an ideal lap line (or as close as any of them can get) that would just be playing on loop at the trailer, so that people can spend a bit of time watching where "the line" was on course. maybe even at full speed and one slowed down slightly. I felt a bit discouraged since it had been a while since i had been on track and had a hard time adjusting/remembering where i should be on each element, and just being told to get on line wasn't helping me cause i honestly did not know where i was supposed to go. When i let the instructors drive my car they were not able to keep it on line either as they were learning the car as they went, so wasn't as much of a help as hoped, plus only got one look at it very quick. Just a thought! Had a great time! great way to learn a new car even as a veteran!

  14. I just picked up a set of RE-11's for a very respectable price! the price was $875CAD shipped and tire rack was $850USD so a good price with today's exchange!
  15. Thats the price for the whole set? or per rim?
