  1. I've got to give Thank You's to many people this 2019 HPDE weekend. Starting with track workers keeping us safe, the instructors giving us invaluable knowledge and advice, for me especially my instructor Damon Hill, and the organizing group of people putting in countless hours preparing and organizing the event: Thank-You! My car ended up breaking (right-rear shock broke, not damaging anything else or causing havoc) mid-morning Sunday before the speed limit was lifted. So I feared that I wouldn't be able to finish the course, wasting my time and money. So my biggest THANK YOU is to George Abrahams from Saskatchewan for lending me his BMW M3 so I could successfully finish the course! That was way beyond the call of duty, Thank-you so much! And last but not least, Thank You to Randy Morash, he had his tow truck there and got my car home on Sunday night! I consider by self to be a very fortunate person to have experienced the generosity of so many people of the WSCC! Thank You All! peace, David
  2. I'm looking for a service shop that would be able to do a proper wheel alignment on my Nissan 350Z. My standard auto repair place doesn't have a rig to do it (the various NISMO aero add on bits get in the way of the sensors, they'd have to take the front and rear bumper bits and the side skirts off). With the NISMO multi-link suspension I'd like to have all four wheels aligned and the camber set for slightly more camber than is factory spec. peace, David
  3. I've read about the previous drives, and now that I've got a sports car . . . . When and where's the next drive? peace, David
  4. Great job Ken! Very informative and well put together! peace, David
  5. Brian: My picture has more pronounced rear fender and narrower spoiler. Nope definitely not a Ford,
  6. Bingo! I apologize for having doubted your deductive skills! 2009 was the first model year for the NISMO 370Z.
  7. Me thinks with no pistons being HPDE Director, it wasn’t entirely a guess? But then, why is it a little off. Jim Eh.: Totally stock vehicle.
  8. Many thanks to all that offered suggestions and wisdom for my sports car search. I’m now the proud owner of a 2008, ______ ____ _____. All will be revealed at the HPDE weekend in May! Clue #1:
  9. Can you give me any indication as to the head room in the Boxter? For all the recommendations that I got for the Miata, I would have to do extensive seat lowering/roll bar raising in order to take it out on the track. I'm big, but not tall (5'10") and with a helmet I'm too tall for a stock Miata. Sort of killed that for me.
  10. There is a Hard Dog available for the NC and is SCCA approved. That would take care of the roll bar issue Would still have get a lower seat to get the helmet from hitting the roof. All totaled, 3 - 4K$ on top of the cost. Maybe better to put that towards a 350z
  11. Road Block on the Miata NC! So I bought a helmet to help me gauge prospective cars and I got in a Miata NC today. I'm not a tall person (big, but not tall, 5' 10") and with the helmet on, it pushes up on the fabric convertible top and hits the lateral framing member. (seat was all the way back, all the way down). Drawing a line from the top of the wind screen frame to the stock roll hoop, my helmet would be about 2" above the line Thinking about putting in an after market roll bar, but I'd have to remove the convertible top totally. It's completely in the way of a roll bar and back angle brace. Or maybe putting in a lower seat? Are we allowed to run on the track with out a top? Nissan 350Z is looking good, I can fit in it with the helmet.
  12. Thanks mcorrie . . . good link on the Miata. Yeah, I've been looking at the 350Z's as well. Just have to raise the cash now . . . buying in late winter / early spring. peace, Grant
  13. Thank you white cross! I’m scratching the cash together and will probably be in a position to buy in late winter/ early spring.
  14. Thank you for all the comments. Next phase, next week is to test drive some samples of my top 4: Miata Z3 Z4 Scion FR-S
  15. @Magner thanks for the detailed Miata recommendation! @Beau thank you for all the food for though. I’ll have to work through all the details!
