There's a group I go to Thunderhill with that doesn't use run groups. The track is open from 9-12, then 1-5. Go out when you want, stay out as long as you want, come in when you want. It's awesome. It really spoils you for normal track days.
I would never stop!
<br />That was a great weekend. We found an old spec Miata racer who ran a group down with us so we could play. It was a blast following him. I finished the day with a 2:14.7 on a fast lap.
<br />I'm definitely at the limit of grip on these tires...and I love it. The car is very neutral and when it let's go its a nice controlled 4 wheel slide. Only had one off all weekend, same as last year, turn 3. Too much entry speed, car started to rotate so I pointed it straight and ran off into the dirt.
<br />Some minor electrical gremlins with my vei gauge to figure out but otherwise I love the way the car is. I would need more grip if I wanted more power.
<br />Ran 4psi all weekend. Just enough to pass BMWs on the straights but not too much for the straights.
<br />Ian what group is that. I want to run with them.
<p>Thanks to Jeffbucc I have my new harness all ordered. If it gets here by Wed I can throw it together and run autocross on sunday *fingers crossed*</p><p>Now its bed. I bet hi_im_sean is just waking up.</p><p><br /></p>

Monday is my Sunday, I slept in late until 6 today
Neutral noise could still be TOB. It could be stiff and getting close to siezure causing it to slip against the clutch fingers or fork making a squeal, but as soon as it loads up it gets forced to turn and it quieted down.
Hmm that could have been it. I also think I accidentally put in the TIB from the auction car instead if the one I bought last year.
<br />Real question:
<br />Can I run like this for a few more months, and what's the worst thing that can happen?
I had a Mustang do this once. TOB sizes up and ceases to function as a bearing and becomes a very dull cutter on a 200+ HP lathe. It then attempts to machine the fingers on the pressure plate or the transmission input shaft. Or both if you don't catch it fast enough. Because its not a cutter, it fails spectacularly at both tasks.
