  1. I started out with the different level of Hawk brand brakes and were not happy with any of them. I tried some Racing Brake (TM) { http://www.racingbrake.com/ } performance brakes on a suggestion from Curtis and they performed well to excellent depending on the environmental conditions. Cooler weather degraded the performance and produced squeal. On the other end of the spectrum, I never experienced any brake fade on an autoslalom course. Not too sure on which level of pads I did use as I first installed them 4 years agso you would have to do some investigation on the website. I had to swap them out for my OEM pads for winter. All in all they lasted 3 seasons, one was a co-drive so I can attest to their durability. Not too aggressive on the rotors either. Will I buy them again, YES. I did not run the car with the pads for time attack at Gimli so not much input there. I will say that if you plan on doing some hard time on the track at Gimli, whatever you use for autoslalom, will not live up to your expectations ... period. It is a PITA but swapping out the pads for track days is probably a good idea if you have a bit of a competitive streak.
  2. And thank you Cara and Shane.
  3. Try both by phone and internet. I got a room in portage, on the net, 5 minutes after the desk clerk told me on the phone there were no rooms available! Then I phoned back to confirm the reservation and she cheerfully said "Yes you are confirmed for ..." sheesh.
  4. And what did you have for lunch that day? People water ski in the summertime in that? Think I just may put my hatch back on.
  5. According to Tim, the track man Taylor ...."So far the ice is looking good in Portage, doing the track with Mat on Friday!"
  6. Just a friendly reminder to "outsiders". The reduce speed limit in school zones for Portage La Prairie is in effect 24/7/365 so reduce your road speed when approaching a marked school zone.
  7. Not yet. I think I will have to request NYC to return.

  10. A new category has been added to honor all the wonderful volunteers that help us all enjoy our sport.
  11. Here's to a quick and painless road to full recovery. {clink}
  12. Simply ... WOW. Thanks for the update.
  13. You are most likely aware but some may not be ... after you read the posts you are interested in, simply tap "mark posts read" on the desktop version (top right) or on your mobile the drop down menu with the three horizontal bars contains the " mark site read" selection button. I don't think there is a way to isolate the gallery from the new posts list. If you have "100 posts" to catch up on, then you are not visiting the site very often and can simply scroll down to the sections that you want or are interested in without selecting "unread content", they are highlighted bold if they contain unread material, then afterwards just click site read. That way you don't even have to look at the "new" old material. Besides after the initial batch of photos are uploaded it should taper off. Personally, like Chris, I am amazed at all the rich history of this club. BTW Chris, comments are turned off on these other than the original poster simply to keep the sheer number of posts from getting out of hand. Is #94 an ORIGINAL GT40???? Gotta be a glass clone? Where are all these cars now?
