  1. After COVID19 ruined our plans for a High Speed Driving Experience and Licensing School in May 2020, we are optimistically planning for a great 2021 season. Knowing how much people are looking forward to this event, we set the date for May 1st and 2nd of 2021. Expect to see some minor changes to the layout of the event, yet it will be again a highly anticipated weekend for participants and volunteers alike! Watch motorsportreg.com after New Year for the opportunity to sign up. The HPDE / Licensing School traditionally has sold out rather quickly.in the past few years - signing up early he
  2. It probably would be a good idea to either tell us what vehicles they are for, or give measurements...
  3. Are you still looking for seats? I have two Ractive seats available; however, I would have to measure how wide they are...I assume your 21" refer to the seating area width, not the shoulders?
  4. @Weebly : I don't have snow tires, either. But Drift Mode, that I have! I don't even have to switch it on, it comes on all by itself, whenever I don't need it....
  5. You suckered him in for the Swift, and now for the job as IRD? Not sure who we should congratulate more....? Thank you, Mike, for taking over this task! With your interest in Ice racing, it is hard to envision a better candidate!
  6. I went into motorsportreg.com yesterday, as well as just now, and it says " Registration suspended"...Is there no event tomorrow or Sunday?
  7. … and I have to say a couple of things to the following people: - to all the directors and committee members who evidently did not put in enough efforts to host more events on this year - to all the competitors who were slower than me and clearly held me back - to all competitors who were faster than me, with the obvious intent to make me look bad - to all the competitors from "the other racing category" who took time away from each race day - to all hot-lappers who clogged up the pits and took all the good parking spots - to all time keepers and scorers that did

  9. Ouch! I would think that the colour of your car should make it somewhat visible in traffic...you are ok, though? When you say that wear is entirely on the outer 1/3rd, do you really mean entirely? Or does the rest of the tire wear as well, just not as dramatically? To a certain extend the outer part of the tread will always wear worse, as the tire tries to fold underneath the rim during hard cornering. To avoid that completely, you would have to run very extreme camber, probably to the extend that you can't brake properly anymore... The maximum factory specs for camber front and rear
  10. -2 and -3 are already on the aggressive side. It might be right for Gimli (you may have to experiment a bit), but for street usage it probably will be a bit extreme. Also keep in mind that with more negative camber you reduce your tires' contact patch on the street when going in a straight (and of course of the tires on the inner radius of a corner). Especially during braking this can have a negative effect.
  11. Can you verify what viscosity the oil is, please?
  12. Great pictures and a large spread of information - excellent work! I especially like your little blip about your cracked rim. I think we all are guilty of assuming that everything will be ok...after all, we only drove a few kilometers! It is too easy for us to forget how much stress we put our cars through in those few laps! Having seen your rim with my own eyes, I must agree: this would have been a catastrophic failure within minutes. Your quick thinking most definitely saved you from a major incident! This is a very real reminder to keep checking your car during the race weekends.
  13. Definitely a huge Thank You to Matt and Steve for taking over the timing trailer - and doing it successfully! It never is easy to take over the job of somebody else, and having to perform with minimal training. I know Matt made one mistake, as he failed to record my 55 seconds lap , but other than that, he did a fabulous job!
  14. Shooter (Dave?), I believe I am allowed to speak for the racers coming to Gimli....you are definitely welcome! Everyone on the track knows that without volunteers we can't race. Therefore we thank you already in advance for showing up and helping out. And don't worry about the reaction time...we just drive slower
  15. I want to chime in here, and echo Dason's comments. I am always one of the first persons to sign up as a driver for any of our events, expecting to have a great weekend filled with the smell of burnt fuel and abused brakes, the squeal of tires and the rushes of adrenaline. But at the same time, I also realize that this is not going to happen without all of your help. Some of you are easy to see when you are at the flagging stations, where we keep looking for you. However, there are so many of you who are just as important as the station marshals to make each event a success, and while you
