  1. Be sure to drag your brakes during a warm-up lap. They need a ton of heat to work properly. Good luck!
  2. There is likely three things that caused fire... Paint boiling off stock Pads caliper getting hot, slider boots melting, seals failing and sending fluid past the cylinder you have a pressure leak in the rubber lines @ the crimp locations Changing to DOT4 or 660 won't help the fire situation. All brake fluid will ignite if sprayed onto a hot rotor. I lit my wheels up last season with Motul 660 in the caliper. The rest is subjective but I will argue that EBC yellows are the best bang for the buck for all-round double duty use. Are there better track-day pads? yep! Are th

    Summer Series

    Agreed. Mid week sounds good to me.
  4. Hi Folks, It's that time of the year again! With 42 students, we will need a full complement of instructors for this season. I will be putting together another instructor briefing for 2021. Last time we had one was 2018 so I think we are due. Also, with restrictions likely still in place we will need to discuss how the practical curriculum will operate and how we will be monitoring student progress and then interacting with our students. If you haven't already, please head on over to wsccracing.com and register to instruct. Also don't forget to head to WCMA's msr page
  5. All of the above. I think the Roval would be fun. Mix of the two types of tracks. Oval would be too. Not sure if there are more interesting ovals out there to try than Daytona.
  6. For future...Daytona roval with the C7R, ferrari GT etc.
  7. Hi Folks, Lots of buzz around the school this year, and lots of requests to assist which is great to see! If you are interested in volunteering, please register at http://msreg.com/21clsvolunteer If you have any questions, please let us know by posting here. Friendly Reminders: Lunches and other concessions will only be provided to those who register. We are expecting limitations due to the pandemic and thus limiting volunteer registrations to specific tasks needed. Chief of Staff (Jordan S. @chkdsk or delegate) will be assigning volunteer positions. For instruct
  8. I'll set up a volunteer registration page on MSR in the next week or so. Cheers, Darin
  9. There will be a volunteer sign up page on MSR. It will go live same time as the student registration itself.
  10. what do the sidewalls look like? How far are you scrubbing? Have you played with air pressures? I would say stating that a specific camber degree "will work", isn't really helpful. It depends on many things including tires, brakes, suspension setup and most importantly, driving style. I would recommend getting a set of plates and do small adjustments at the track. As Roland suggested, for double duty street/track, going beyond -2 in the front may not be the best choice. This won't happen overnight and best to keep a log. that way if you move to the point where you don't like it,
  11. Thanks @SVOXR4STi. Yep seen "Jordan the welder" videos! Haha
  12. At least 1/2" inside and out, followed by acetone cleaning. Most definitely AC (70/30 Sine wave) I think the sugaring is actually the burning of the metal. Coarse grain structure.
  13. Hi Folks, Any experienced TIG welders in here? I am looking for help, advice or tips on welding thin wall aluminum intercooler piping. Anyone willing to show me what I am doing wrong? I know practice practice practice, but I can't get there to start. I have been wasting coupons and samples for months trying to figure this out. I am an experienced Stick and MIG welder (shamefully admitting over 30yrs worth) and TIG welding is kicking my butt. Haven't done any brazing since shop class in grade school! I looked at taking TIG classes at WT and RR, but it seems they require the MIG
