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

Have been trying to get Kevin to get a more reliable, less "on the edge" competition car for a few years. I know the answer in the past has always been "Miata" but more recently Grassroots...

Re: WIL: OTA weekend at SMP

1) Rain and old NT01s worn down to "slick" status don't mix well

2) The bright side of spinning at turn 13 is that a) I got to show what to do when you have 2 wheels off the track i.e go...

Re: WIL: DDT Weekend

Finally got around to looking at the Aim Solo data from this year, last year and the year before so here goes:

Re: Brakes went weirder

Yes, putting a proportioning valve downstream of the ABS box worked very well on my 4 th gen Camaro and eliminated 95% of the rear axle hop. The car stood on its nose under heavy braking but was easy...

Re: What you need to know for Events 2 and 3

No, the one tech sheet works for both days. Assuming you don't make any significant off track excursions, you should only need to be teched once for the weekend.

Re: Racing Schools

Are your interested parties looking for race schools or track schools?

If it is a track school, few are better than the OTA schools at the DDT and Mosport.

Re: Protruding wheels and associated PIPs

The purpose of fender flares is to cover the tire so it is either 2 PIPs for flares or 2 pips for tires that stick out more than the fender. It is possible then to actually have to take 4 PIPs if...

Re: Brake Pads

Try Raybestos ST43. They are more expensive than the G/loc Carbotechs but last longer and IMO have better pedal feel.

Re: Proposed Rule Changes for 2018
