    Seeking Tire Advice

    Mounting damage that started failure and track abuse just accele┼Ľated it? Or defective tires. Coincidence about two in row in the same position? I have looked at many tires and performed more alignments than I can count and I have never seen any alignment cause damage like that ... ever. If the tire was so under inflated as to cause damage then there would be tell tale signs well before the failure. Also if there were a defective component, again there would be telltale sign long before your failure.

  9. For the 2.4 runs I had ... fun but a little slalom rich. Not much in change up. The change in pacing on the "expensive" slalom series early in the north section was challenging. Initially I thought the termination on the far side of the track was going to be an issue and although it may have added the need to space competitors more no safety issues came up that I am aware of. From what I remember, section 5 brought about the highest cone count and DNFs but I could not tell exactly what part of section 5 brought that about. I do know visually going into the south pivot looked a little strange to me but the trick was to look ahead (as always) to look for the directional layover cones in the very back or simply know in your mind which direction it was suppose to follow. Nice little challenge in the change up just south of the start line caught more than one or a dozen drivers off guard. The only real cross track change and I guess that's why. Not intentional to just give criticisms, (more like just observations). I am not able to provide any real solutions. The only change in the rating system I could suggest is to track the ratio of DNFs between the classes. A lot of work I know just interesting to compare between layouts.

    Strange looking part

    Guibo, VANOS, half a dozen other weird names/parts/systems. This has been an interesting journey.
  13. Not too sure what BMW calls this part, I just know what I call it .... broke. Kinda hard to shift this way. It's a shot (looking up) from underneath the shift pivot.

    How to get 100+ Octane Fuel?

    It used to be that the grades were blended at the point of sale. Now it is blended at time of loading at the fuel depot(what used to be the refineries). In the case of Winnipeg it is either Shell or Esso. Husky/Mowhawk have a blending station behind their location on Marion St.to add their ethenol but not too sure it they still use it.

    Custom alignment shop thread?

    Wow, with almost a full degree of front toe in that thing must have been a little squirrely in the corners? Or had you just changed some components?
