Re: WIL: OTA weekend at SMP

I don't know if I learned anything (unlike KevinM I already knew Corvettes were the best thing around) but it was great to be back. It was nice of Shannonville to have smoothed out the bumps a bit...

Saturday co-drive?

I will be in the Shannonville area for a visit on Saturday. It would be great to drive an Ontario track again. Since my car is on the other coast, I was wondering if anyone going to SMP on Saturday...

Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

There is a bit of rub on the front when using a lot of lock while autocrossing (both on the fenderwell behind the headlight, and maybe a bit on the fender). But nothing that seemed to do much damage....

Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

Something like 2.2F/1.3R.

It's not quite as uneven as you might think from the photo. But they do seem to like to wear the shoulders.

Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

As it turns out, 33% better (4 days...plus a bit of autocross). Pretty scary cost per day.

They're at least fast as a R888's magic second heat cycle all the way to those cords though :eek:

Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

The Rival and Rival-S feel like completely different tires to me. I would love to talk to an engineer at Michelin to understand what they really changed.

I think it's plausible that a single set...

Re: OMSC presents Which tires to buy for 2016

Bar none? That's impressive for a tire that I am not sure is actually faster than a R888...(which to be fair is a class above).

It sounds like the new belt package for the smaller width Rival-S...

Re: FWD Suspension Setup (Questions)

I think Dennis Grant's recommendation for target natural frequencies and FWD setup is pretty solid. http://farnorthracing.com/autocross_secrets.html

Re: OTA is...:

Using what is in the name of the series is probably a good idea.

However, I always describe OTA as a time trial series to anyone I talk to.

To me "time attack" means:
* Open concept rules with...

Re: The DATA thread.

How many competitive days (or is it measured in laps) do you feel you get out of them? My forum research has been ambiguous, although I have heard them called "Two Days".

Re: PAX vs WHP vs optimization

If you're being strategic, make sure you run the numbers for Mosport - it uses a slightly different PAX modifier, which is also in the rulebook.

Re: Scratching my head

Maybe they are, but it is always hard to tell with UTQG. Nothing I have seen suggests that the PSC2 is as fast as top-flight treaded R comps like the Trofeo R or Ventus TD (Soft). It would be...

Re: Scratching my head

The Pilot Sport Cup 2 is probably the street tire with the most heat capacity now.

I was frustrated by the Rival but it is not a soft or vague tire. Just slidey.

Re: Suggestions for rule changes for 2015

I don't know about tires, but the huge wing Jack's car runs on the track (but is always removed for photos) probably helps.

Not really sure that a Pilot Sport Cup 2 is better than an NT01,...

Re: Quick Rule Question

Maybe - NASA TT seems to me to be a spec A6 (now A7) series, so it might be worth digging a little deeper to see if that number is based on anything.

Re: Quick Rule Question

The R888s I just went through were mid-2013 tires and it was a pretty similar story. First day on them I was wishing I used them for OTA. By the fifth day I was thanking myself for never being that...

I think you'd need at least two sets of R888s to have a reasonably competitive season. Maybe three...

Re: Quick Rule Question

Does the R888 or NT01 fit your car? Both those will get you back into the +5pip range and they seem to be about the same speed as the Maxxis.

I have been happy enough with the R888 in the sense...

Re: Suggestions for rule changes for 2015

One really needs to go a bit deeper and do an analysis along these lines. % weight or power loss/gain doesn't obviously tell you how a car will get scored.

Re: Suggestions for rule changes for 2015

The organizing committee needs something to panic over, even if in a historical context it doesn't make sense. e.g., 350Z , Mustang, Mustang II, high power cars, 3-series, low weight cars. Certainly...
