Build Plans for 2018

Just curious what everyone has planned this winter season?

I have a front splitter and APR GT250 wing to install

New Stoptech BBK 328mm rotors & G-Loc pads

Heavier springs installed already and track tested at GB in the fall
(results 1.3 seconds per lap faster)

9" front wheels ready for install, 255Fr 215R tires
(I won't give a way the tire compound yet)

Racepak Data Acquisition (help me figure out where Corey is faster)

Dyno Tune from Sasha

Maybe some more weight reduction see how the Pip schedule looks

The car is hibernating in the garage at the moment!

Re: Build Plans for 2018

Reliability mods for sure for me:
- Baffle plate for my oil reservoir (bolt in)
- Dual catch cans (closed system as opposed to open air)

Possible mods (depends on my budget):
- Sport bucket (1 PIP)
- Harness bar add-on to my roll over bar
- Harness + HANS
- Spoon rigid collars + replacement subframe bolts (1 PIP)

That would put me at the top of GT3 points I believe but I need to do more research before I put in the collars hence the "possible mods" title.

Re: Build Plans for 2018

Always fun to plan for the next season! Let's see here:

- improve existing front end aero by relocating oil coolers and covering up openings in the bumper.
- move from a 1000lbs/in spring to a ~1200lbs/in spring in the back. The 1er really loved to understeer and it drove me nuts.
- properly secure a boost coupler that liked to pop off on every OTA weekend. Taking apart the front end trackside is never fun.
- stuff more tire under all 4 corners

May move up to SGT1 as well with some extra aero PIPs and a dyno tune to ~350whp.

Grant, I don't think we've formally met but your name is familiar. I too used to race RC (1/10 Nitro @ PLRC/Fastcats and 1/12 electric @ TORC/Fastcats) with yourself, Corey and Steve. Small world . 1:1 is alot more fun tho I do miss RC. Maybe when my son is of age and if he shows interest, I'll come back (as his pit crew. ha!)

Good luck figuring out how Corey is faster. I have tried using my data logger and the answer is he is faster everywhere and always. He has the touch, no question.

Re: 2018 plans:
Replace broken driver seat
remove rear wing - need some straight line speed.
maybe stiffer shocks.
repair leaky shock
new set of tires as with every year.
Plan to stay in GT2

That seems like another life! Fastcats has been closed for a while, I ran at Lou's but retired from RC in April 2015 I think! 1:1 racing is way more expensive! Make sure you come by next year and say hello.

Re: Build Plans for 2018

main goal for 2018
- reliability - rebuilding engine using king XPG main and rod journal bearings and concentrating on how to achieve best possible engine cooling via adding a few extra air ducts etc

-staying in GT3 (awesome class)

- adding a AIM evo4s data acquisition (quite the passion in regards to vehicle dynamics and also analyzing where I can improve on track aka pretty much everywhere haha)

- weight reduction (myself included)

- have a few spare PIPs to spend which will be on upgrading all suspension bushings .

- adding a accusump so I have a extra reserve of 3 quarts of oil to leave all over the track by the time we race at Shannonville again.(jk)

Re: Build Plans for 2018

Great to see all these build plans. When I was competing it was one of the most enjoyable parts of the sport. Planning and building and tracking your progress and improvement. (Second only to actually driving on the track of course!)
Last winter and this winter I've been involved in similar but different build plans - working on more restoration of the 67 Mustang and my latest acquisition, a 71 BSA motorcycle. Also great fun!
Good luck everyone.

Re: Build Plans for 2018

New, wider tires RS4 225 vs RE71 205 on lighter 15" rims. New rotors Stoptech with new Hawk pads DTC 60 vs G-loc H10. Lots of gym and X-country skiing to survive till Spring.
Hope to improve by >1sec in GT4, Ha!!
Any previous experience on tire choice? RS4 vs RE71?
Pads DTC vs G-loc?

Orange Integra #283
I would like to change a few things under the hood but have already used up a good chunk of my budget for 2018. Hopefully, the registration fees will not increase too much.

RS4's are comparable to the RE71R. Being 20mm wider should make the Hankook equal to your re71

I am not a fan of the DTC's as they were the worst pad I used for uneven material transfer to the rotor causing vibration. Your car is less powerful and lighter than mine, though. You trailer, right? Noise shouldn't matter if you go up in G-LOC compound.

I've heard mixed reviews on the DTC pads. Some people like them, some people hate them. G-Loc pads are effectively the Carbotech compound and I found them long lasting and somewhat less aggressive on rotors BUT the caveat is that their cold bite is not good and they are considerably hard to modulate.

I currently run Project Mu Club Racer RC09 compound and love them. Your car would also do well with them.

As for RS4s vs RE71Rs, Tire Rack recently did a review and found that in the dry, the RS4s are damn near comparable to the 71Rs in terms of overall cornering grip. On the downside, they are not as good in the wet. However, the RS4s will outlast the RE71Rs any day of the week. I personally used a fresh set of RS4s at the beginning of the 2017 season and still have about 35% left after doing a full OTA season plus 10 other track days.

Bang for buck, RS4s are fantastic and for your car, it will do well. Bear in mind, if the day is already hot and your driving induces very high peak temperatures, the RE71Rs will die off quickly that day (and overall). RS4s will take much more heat and I haven't had them die on me ... yet.

What is happening to this wing? For sale to a needy Integra?

I already built a new transmission and I have the motor apart ready to overhaul. Should be done before the new year, I never do this, usually I wait til it's spring and then work til midnight every night to get ready.

The wing is not for sale. Will be used at the GP track.
