Re: 2018 OTA Event Schedule

Also having had kids recently (turning 5 and 3 this year), it's been hard to get any sort of track time. This will be my first year tracking (I've done a little autocross), so I'm in the same boat of...

Re: Not tracking anymore. Gear for someone just starting out

Also might be interested if anything is available, primarily shoes, suit, etc.

I'm 5'9"ish and about 195, so not sure how snug that suit is (I need a driver mod...)

Re: Autoslalom workshop

I have one of these at home, and on my main floor mounted at the ceiling, I can see the AP from the park (about 140 yards away). And this is through a brick wall. These things are pretty amazing.

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

Thanks so much for the rookie tips! My whole approach to this car has been "reliability first, suspension and brakes second, power probably never." :)



Agreed! Alignment just going to be stock...

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

Looks like the Carbotech XP10 is equivalent to G-Loc R10 (just fyi):

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

This is kind of what I figured :) Maybe I'll swap out the OEM for autocross days or something then, or just keep them in case I ever sell the car. I'll start looking at Carbotech and G-Loc then, as...

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

Thanks for the tip! Definitely need an alignment (new suspension and all that). I'll be looking for places up near Barrie/Alliston for an alignment once I get some of the other engine work done that...

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

The MS3 does indeed have an LSD stock with it, so this is some good information in case I decide to stay with this car going forward over the years! For now, I'm basically just in the process of...

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

Thanks for all the information folks! Overall I'm not too worried about where I'm placing in the first season (or two?) due to simply learning and having some fun. I didn't do a big suspension swap...

Re: Question about PIPs for suspension

That's what I was afraid of. It seems like there should be some sort of middle ground between "stock suspension, 0 PIPs", and "full adjustable damping, rebound, spring rate coilover system, 6 PIPs"....

Hello all!

Quick intro I guess as I'm new here. Leif Madsen, live in Alliston Ontario, driving a 2008 Mazdaspeed3, non-daily.

Re: My first season with OTA

Thanks for writing this up! I've been wanting to get into tracking my car as well, and have done a couple of autocrosses. Until just recently though, I had to daily the car, but I'm now in a position...
