  1. LF Co-drive Sunday July 16

    I would offer you mine, but you might have to fight my codriver for it and then you would be too tired to fight Curtis and he might actually beat you. As much fun as that might be, I just can't condone that much violence in one day. lol
  2. Event #8

    @MRS Joe Thanks for the input, I will work on that. My in-cars are just above Chris's. I am thinking my double inputs are catching the rear, but maybe not. I will pay more attention to that over the next few events to make sure my corner entries are maximizing my exits. This last event I was heavily focused on the exits which likely resulted in the inputs you're seeing. Your comments on course desigh were well put and I agree, let the law of averages prevail as no single course will make all people happy. Did you buy a Mac? WMM is still included in Win10, you may have to get it from the store though. For basic trimming, I haven't really found anything easier. VSDC and VirtualDub are used by a few I know. For inserting, I just paste the link and it inserts.
  3. Event #8

    Joe, can you explain more the "double inputs" please? I will be at the L2 if you care to have a go on some old Z2's and stock front pads. My plan this weekend was to go out fast, then tighten and tidy things up over the next 3 runs. I feel like I succeeded with my plan, just didn't accelerate it enough to beat Chris. As you all know, I don't mind getting beat in my own car and I am having a ton of fun learning from Chris and v.v. as we both strive to go faster. The fact that the car is under tired just adds to the challenge, something we will have more tools to cope more with soon enough, so I can save the stock shocks for resale (that is my story and I am sticking to it..lol). P.S. Chris, adding rear toe is easy, don't even need a jack...food for thought.
  4. Event #8

    It's about 113. My last run was the only time I didn't risk the shift to 3rd through the finish. Unfortunately Harry's never made it to the finish so I don't know what speeds I was hitting through the lights on the first runs.
  5. Event #8

    Congrats to Chris on the class win and top pax time of the day. Was a great event. Enjoyed the course. Found it mixed speed and technical elements nicely. The small speed adjustments in the middle are fun and really reward looking ahead and are offset by the heavy braking at the pivots, which today turned my rotors blue from the heat. Chris's run 4. My slightly slower run 4.
  6. Reijo is having some issues getting on the forums. Any chance one of the admins can help him out? He sent me this link to Ian's pictures from the Calgary WCMA weekend that some of us attended. https://shuttr.com/iangulinao/gallery/428 Thanks for sharing @reijo or is it @Reijo Silvennoinen
  7. Summer 2017 - Calgary Trip

    Damn it, I won't be back from the east coast in time.
  8. 2017 SCCA Nationals

    I am out for this year. Too many parts to buy. Planning to do Spring Nats and Nats next year though. Should even have a trailer by then. The lot really is a blast to drive on. If you have never been, it is highly recommended. Not only is the lot awesome, but you will meet some great people and see some of the best built racecars you could imagine. Instagram has nothing on SCCA car porn at Nationals!

    @themikewoo...just put it to the Mario Kart theme.
  10. Summer 2017 - Calgary Trip

    Finally found time to get videos and get something posted. Was a great weekend! Travelling with the WSCC members is always a good time. Our hosts in Calgary put on a really good show. I drove fairly well Saturday, enjoyed my Saturday night, drove really badly Sunday morning (possibly due to Saturday night) and then redeemed myself Sunday afternoon. Ended up top 10 PAX both days which was my goal. Sunday though I was out of the top 10 after the morning and had to put down a solid drive in the afternoon to get back in. I managed it, but didn't beat Chris by enough in the afternoon to take the win in the car both days. Chris's driving Sunday morning was awesome! The car felt really good all weekend. It did tighten up a little, which is probably a good thing considering it is a little loose locally. The Nexen's performed extremely well (when driven properly). We did have to start spraying them after second runs, but that wasn't a problem. If Calgary still has that lot next year I will likely head there again, all other variables permitting, it was that good. Saturday AM Saturday PM My camera settings aren't great for Sunday....I may have forgotten that Corey was going to narrow the field of view Saturday night and then I narrowed it again Sunday morning...ooppps. Sunday AM (watching this may cause your eyes to bleed it was that bad). Sunday PM Reijo's Fun Runs (He may have beaten me on his second run...but not by as much as I would have imagined he would...level 2 school here is on my radar for this year now so I can find that time).
  11. Event #7

    Here is my fastest clean run. Again, I coned away PAX FTD. I have to stop doing that. Was a great street class battle with less than 0.5s separating first from fifth. Was anybody's to win. Congrats to Beau for taking it this time. I predict it is going to be a fun year in street class. Liked this course. It flowed well and although Chris and I used different lines we finished with 2/10ths of each other. https://youtu.be/AR_YiJsRXEk
  12. Tires - bought in Canada ?

    Looking forward to @Magner's evaluation. Some heard mine over the weekend, but I thing Chris is a better writer than I so I will leave the online summary to him. Lets just say Mike, I coned away PAX FTD both days this weekend. Do you need more proof?
  13. Event #6

    Not sure I understand. I launch in first, shift to second then downshift to first for the pivots and shift to second when applicable. If this doesn't make sense find me at the next event you are at and come for a ride along or ask me and I will explain.
  14. Event #6

    Yeah, in the wet first is useless in my car. I do downshift in the dry though. Probably could have on the last run, just didn't risk it.
  15. Event #6

    Here is my fastest clean run from today. https://youtu.be/0iff7LbxV_8 And may fastest scratch time from run 4, a 53.130 with some mistakes. Had it not been for the cone this was good for pax FTD. Alas a cone is a cone is a cone. https://youtu.be/vabuqZ7_dhA @Magner and I both really liked the new Nexen's, even in the wet. They were quick to heat up, and we still have some work to do, but for the new kid on the block, these tires worked really well in changing conditions today. As for the course, really liked that chute concept, that was cool. The course certainly drove better than it walked, The seemingly random variations in the slalom spacings at the transition broke up the flow of an otherwise good course design. The transition was punishing in the Vette. I think all my hit cones were in the transition.
