Re: Competitors' meeting Nov 3, Topics for Discussion

You were happy with the concrete barriers in the runoff area at the end of the main straight or have they been moved?

Re: Competitors' meeting Nov 3, Topics for Discussion

I think the issue we have is that HP is rated on street gas but if cars can gain power by running race gas, how do we classify them? As Craig has mentioned, given that we don't look at the type of...

Re: Competitors' meeting Nov 3, Topics for Discussion

At this stage, we are not looking at Grand Bend. Historically, it has been our least attended venue despite the attractions of the town. Also there are a minimal number of configurations that we can...

Re: Hankook RS4 optimal temps/feedback

Need to know a few things. Type of car (drive configuration), weight, camber measurements and how hot did you do your cool down lap?

Off hand, I would think your front pressures are a bit high.

Re: WIL: OTA weekend at SMP

Re: Brakes went weirder
