  2. I've attached our schedule for racing at GMP for this summer. I apologize for it taking so long. I heard hotel accommodation was in short supply. Each weekend will include the Friday track Day of lapping for club members plus Saturday and Sunday racing and Time Attack. There is some possibility of some drift activity as well.

  3. Going... Going... Gone! As of this morning, all regular spots for the Licensing School have been filled. However, I encourage everyone who is interested to sign up for the HPDE / Licensing School anyways. You will not have to pay anything, as you will be placed onto a waiting list. This waiting list serves two functions: it creates the pool of replacement participants, just in case a participant has to cancel; it also allows us to gauge interest for a second event. The waiting list entries will be queued by entry date: the first person on the waiting list will be the first person to receive the opportunity to substitute for any drop-out. Therefore it is highly recommended that you sign up immediately. The sooner you do, the greater the likelyhood to get that invitation to fill an open spot!

  4. David,I have been thinking about this for a while now... If your car has external bumpstops to limit suspension travel, then heavy braking should not bottom out the shock absorbers at all, as the suspension should collapse onto the bump stop. If your front coilovers have internal bumpstops, then the shock absorber should also not bottom out (it should collapse the bumpstop). If a strut/coilover has no internal bumpstop, the shock absorber typically is long enough that you won't bottom it out either (otherwise you would damage the valve stack inside or rip the housing) - you should be experiencing coil bind first. However...whether you have bumpstops in your struts or not, the force going into the lower strut bushing is always the same, since the weight of the car and the kinetic force remains the same.. Therefore changing the shock absorber or the spring is not going to improve the life of the bushing at the bottom of the coilover.
