  2. The Facebook Event listing says, “Free, duration 1 day” !!!!
  3. Tires with a wear rating of 340, results in -5 PIPs and takes you down to GT3 class
  4. What is the wear rate of your tires? That could affect your class even if you are bone stock otherwise.
  5. Max: according to http://ccdb.casc.on.ca/ your car is in GT2
  6. In discussions with our Treasurer Chris, it seems like there won’t be much point in us submitting budgets for approval at tomorrow evening’s meeting as we’re still in the middle of COVID restrictions which have resulted in the postponement or suspension of most of our scheduled events this spring. As a result, we’ll table the budgets for approval at our June meeting instead and hope that by then we have a bit more clarity with respect to what the rest of the summer is likely to hold. There should be a revised agenda posted to the forums shortly. See you all this evening. Winnipeg Sports Car Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  7. Typically not until a week or two before
  8. Oxygen deprivation won’t put out a battery fire. When a LI battery is damaged it shorts out and the energy in it heats it up, which heats up adjacent batteries, which causes them to short . . . and it cascades. It would probably still happen in a vacuum, no flames, but destruction never the less. The only way to prevent the cascading is to cool it until the energy is dissipated in all the compromised cells.
  9. I had been doing some brake work this spring . . . didn’t do it all at once, had changed my rotors, leaving my older pads (over 50% life on them, Carbotech XP10/XP8) on, without brake pad shims. The result was horrible brake noise when moderate braking under 20kmph. yesterday I installed new pads (same composition as before) with titanium brake pad shims. I then went on a bed-in run and 20 minutes of driving through town. NOT. A. PEEP. OR. SQUEEL!! I’m looking forward to Hot Lapping this weekend, new tires, new brakes, new clutch, all new fluids, some new suspension bushings, slightly less tension on the rear sway bar
  10. LastV8: Registration will be available closer to the event date. You are correct on Road Race vs Time Attack. Track day is the Friday, the 11th, no timing, restricted passing.
  11. rusoman said "...brake fluid everywhere..." Sound like either the caliper seals blew or the brake hose blew. The natural response when the brakes fail is to press harder, and if the seals or hoses were overly hot, that'd increase fluid pressures and something blew. So . . . stainless steel braid hoses are called for too.
