  1. Thanks for getting the times up and to all the volunteers this weekend! We had a small group of Time Attackers out there but we couldn't have gone ahead without all the volunteers. Whether we have one car or 40 we need the same support. Thank you very much!

  3. If you need something to do while it keeps snowing...Here is the latest Aficionado to curl up with in front of the fire! Thanks to all those that submitted articles and especially @Boreal for all the great ice racing photos! Aficionado 2022-2 Digital.pdf
  4. If you are stuck inside this January - Stay warm and stay healthy, curled up reading the digital version of our first Aficionado of the Year. Printed copies will be available at our next event. WSCC Aficionado 2022-1.pdf
  5. There is only one PAX factor for each class so if you're in T2 it doesn't matter if you're at the low end or top end its the same (T2 54.9 I think?). Therefore its in your best interest to max out your mods while staying in the class you want. Back to your original post, its definitely exciting to scroll through web sites dreaming about modifying your car! I've wasted days doing it too. However, I've found its very difficult to find the right mods that actually improve your performance and your competitiveness. What you mentioned and others have said: Brakes and tires are the best way to improve both actual times without hurting your classification. After that it becomes very complex. Bottom line with each class you move up to you need to cut off almost 1.5 secs a lap to stay at the same score. Its easy to mod your car with coil overs, sway bars, wings, exhaust etc. but then you need to actually drop several seconds off your lap time to make them worth it. I wanted to drop the ride height and have some adjustability on my GTI. But coil overs are worth 6 PIPS at the least. So I installed adjustable shocks and incurred 2 PIPs. I don't think they had a noticeable effect over the decent stock shocks. It can get frustrating! Also although the class system is very detailed, unfortunately not every car starts in the same place from the factory. Basically you can spend a lot of money and incur a lot of PIPS trying to take a basic car and turn it into a competitor but still come up short on the track. You are often better to take your money and put it towards a car that is competitive already in its class. Of course its not easy to just buy a new car. But its easy to slowly blow hundreds or thousands on car mods with the click of a mouse. Search the CASC Database of cars and compare classes and what these cars cost used. There are a few hidden bargain Time Attack cars in the list that are faster than their rivals. When I felt my T1 GTI was at its limit I considered tuning and every other mod to make it faster. There were a few more seconds in it. But I realized it would never be competitive in the GT2-1 classes so I moved on before I spent a few thousand and ruined a decent car. Its fun to run and save scenarios on the CASC website to see what is the best combination is before you make any purchases or changes. Good luck. PS others will say just work on the driver and become a faster racer - but that's not as fun as buying new light weight wheels and tires!
  6. Its been a while since we've brought you an Aficionado! Finally here is the 2021 Season Wrap-Up issue. Thank you to everyone who contributed - we couldn't do it without your help! If you want a printed copy - Come to the WSCC Awards Banquet on November 20th. PS its best viewed in two-page mode. (VIEW, PAGE DISPLAY) WSCC Aficionado 2021-3.pdf
  7. We are pulling together the next Aficionado for November 2021. Historically we've had a RACE CARS FOR SALE section for members. We haven't put out an issue since the spring and most of the ads here on the forum seem stale. We want to start fresh! No existing ads will be included in the next issue. If you have a race car for sale please start a new post so that we know its current...and of course update it to sold when its sold so we can do the same in the next Aficionado. Thanks Brad
  8. Here is the April 2021 Aficionado. Enjoy. WSCC Aficionado 2021-2 online.pdf
  9. Those CR-1s look a lot like Yok A052s (what I'm running this year). The Nan AR-1s are great tires so these should be too. Let us know how they do...I'm sure they are cheaper than the competition. Thanks
  10. Here is the first Aficionado of 2021. Enjoy! WSCC Aficionado 2021-1 Jan 18.pdf
  11. Marshals, officials, and medical staff were honored this weekend by the FIA, celebrating "Volunteers Weekend" https://www.fia.com/news/marshals-officials-and-medical-staff-honoured-over-fia-volunteers-weekend The FIA know and we all know that we couldn't go racing without all the volunteers! Thank you! PS The volunteers, medical staff, marshals, and official were amazing today when Grosjean's F1 car exploded in Bahrain! He can thank all of them (and the car designers) that he walked away with minor injures!
  12. Here is the latest Aficionado, August 2020. Thank you to everyone that contributed pictures, stories and content. Please keep it coming! Aficionado 2020-08.pdf
  13. I just received the Tire Vote Email asking me to vote on changing the 2020 Time Attack rules due July 30th. What isn't clear in the email is whether this is will take effect next year or going forward this year or retroactively to the previous event. I want to ensure everyone voting understands how the tires they purchased under the current rules will be affected in the remaining season. Brooke and Ian can you confirm when the results of the vote will be enacted? Thank you
  14. Another Great Weekend! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
  15. Brad Epp TA Hopefully both days! Thanks
