  1. When do the run groups get set, morning of or night before?
  2. For those of us that have missed the last event or two, is there a spot for general info on these Gimli events? Racing on the track or strip, food vendor, entrance/exit for spectators and other important info?
  3. Ya, been a while. Schedules don't line up till at least July, but hope to make it out a few times this year.
  4. I used the AXXIS ULT ceramic brakes in both my Eagle Talon and the RX8. Maybe it was just familiarity, but I liked them on both cars. Fairly good for daily use as well, quiet, but did dust quite a bit. Mostly AutoX use, I only had the RX8 up at Gimli but they were fine on that car when I had it up for lapping days.
  5. Ya, no options to adjust the 'racing line' they give. Very odd in some spots. The track is 1.17x longer, but the turn radii are also 1.17x larger, so corner speeds should be up. Not sure on what the math would say for lap times. There are also no options for surface grip level, and I left the default corner banking, which I'm not sure what level that is (I assumed 0ish). I was hoping to make something close to the same feel. I only have 50ish laps under my belt, so I'll have to leave it to those more experienced on the track as to if it 'feels about right'.
  6. For anyone else not able to get out and do real racing, Gran Turismo 6 is available for the PS3 for $15 (Playstation store, 15GB, plus another 15GB-ish of updates, so it will take a while). The cool part is that they made a pretty decent app for creating tracks. I've made the Gimli track, so anyone who has the game can download the track here: https://www.gran-turismo.com/us/gt6/user/#!/friend/Ceezio/course/ Unfortunately, I can't seem to make it exactly right. First off, the pits are on the right of the main straight (can't seem to change that), I can't change the country of origin (no Canadian flag) and the scale is a little off. I have two versions. "GMP 1.5x" is a 150% scale version of the track due to a restriction on the minimum radius turn you could make. I found out how to adjust that, but unfortunately, the main straight couldn't be made any shorter than 600m, this meant I still had to make it slightly larger. "GMP 1.17x" is a 117% scale version of the track. I left them both up for now, but might get rid of the 1.5x version if I need track space later. If you have a Playstation account, all you should need to do is log in at www.gran-turismo.com, then go to the link above, and click on the track you want. A save button should show up to copy the track. I tried to download a few from someone else (the non GMP tracks) and initially it didn't seem to work, but they were in my profile the next day, so either a glitch, or there is a transfer delay. Anyway, enjoy, and hope to see you out in real life.

  8. Claudio Zubin member # 1597 would like to keep #52 please.
  9. Told you you could find some help here. Hopefully you can get your issue fixed, then take it out to some events.
  10. Snell is the rating, the M and the SA are Motorcycle and Special Application. The SA is basically for multiple impacts, which they deem a requirement for certain vehicles (and for road racing). I'm not up on my standards, so I don't know if the ones listed for the helmet you are looking at are equivalent, but I think you need to have one of listed approvals (insurance requirement for us to hold events).
  11. I think the idea would be to run the larger diameter on the inside, correcting for low negative camber. F1 would never need this since they can adjust the car to what they actually need.The only market would be stock autoslalom cars with poor camber adjustment. Probably not worth it, and there may even be some dot rules against that type of construction.
