Haha, thats awesome. And yeah, basically all throttle usage had to stop any time I pointed anyone by. I'm not exaggerating when I say I could pass pretty much anyone on the straights but my cornering speeds are low and my lines suck, and I make liberal use of the point-by whenever I feel like I'm holding someone up. There were a couple other turbo cars in C and it was pretty obvious who they were. They were prepped with brakes and such so it was really great to follow something with a more liberal amount of power.
There's a new one that fixes the issue. It looks basically the same, but I don't know if it fits as well as the original.

https://www.recaro-automotive.com/us...sition-ng.html

After Keith's car broke early on Saturday (and with bbundy not present), I only saw a couple cars in A that had anything approaching the straight-line speed of mine. One was Zandr's blue-and-white 95 LS3, and I was pleased to see how little gap he actually pulled on me down the straight. The other was a greenish-purple NB that I don't know whose it is.

And yeah, pointing the faster Spec Miatas by (mostly on Saturday when I was running significantly slower than on Sunday) was agonizing...

Nice! I need to sort through mine rather than just picking one at random.

Told you you could go faster in 4. I had a mph on you and we know my lack of grip was stupendous

I also had a spoiler on that lap. And definitely remember sliding through the end of turn 4 that one.

Ha, yeah. 4 was a nemesis corner. I've got you by like 5 mph through 9 and 10 though

Overall I think if you had as much power as me we'd be much, much closer.

Yeah. I'll post the video of why I didn't go as fast through 9 and 10 in a second.

I had 4 down to:

1. Brake hard at marker 2. Lift at 1 and get on the power. Then try not to lose it into the wall.

I think you have exceeded the power limits that the 11" brakes were intended for!!! LOL. How bad was the fading? You are still running the Carbotech pads, right? Did you ever do the rear sport upgrade?


If you are running the Carbotechs, did you get the snot looking deposits on your rotors that make them vibrate like they are warped? I had that issue when I ran the Carbotechs on my last few track days. Overheat them once or twice (on 1.8 stock brakes) and they leave some deposit on the rotors that makes everything worse. Then the fading really gets bad.


Do you think you would have been ok with the addition of proper brake ducting? I have been wondering how big a difference that would make. It might have been the difference between fading in one or two brake zones or no fading. Even with ducting I am sure the 11" setup would be just marginal for your needs.


You need the additional margin that the 11.75's offer, no doubt about it. I wonder if you could benefit from the 11.5" mini setup that Aidan and the guys have been messing with.


I hate all of you guys for getting to play on that awesome track!!! Definitely one of my bucket list items!

don't spend more money on brakes until you get brake ducts. With brake ducts Martin was able to continue to use 1.6 brakes on his turbo car. Pads didn't last long, but they continued to stop the car!

Ducts are mucho important.

^^ this.

The Trackspeed 2" backing plates have been on there for an embarrassing amount of time without the ducts hooked up.

Yep! That was the very next lap after you did the James Bond thing Mine still feel round though.

I was trying to see how late I could brake for 8 and I came up over 7 like a bat out of hell. Car got light on the hump and started to wiggle on the suspension bound/rebound, then I n00b'd it and punched the brakes and locked them up. Who got that shot? Gotta add that one to the album
