Default Harris Hill Trackday:7/26, TX Heat Sucks!!(Who has 56K?)

So I went to Harris Hill Rd last week with the local S2KCA club.

They put on a great track day. I had been out to HHR earlier this year for a couple "lead and follow" buy a membership laps in March.

Last week it was a lot hotter. I started to have cooling issues about 3/4 way through my 2nd session. 3rd session was almost the same, but fourth session I only got 2 good laps. I did a slow cool down in the pits, but it started getting hot again before I was through with the lap. So I packed it up early.

My plan of attack is to do the BEGI coolant reroute and probably do the 1.8 water/oil transfer thing. I already have the front sealed up and I'm running a belly pan.

This S2000 had a unique way of dealing with the temps:

Notice the dip stick, craziest way of checking oil level on the track ever.

Best part about the track though, I was out of the gate and in the driveway in 15 minutes! I would've considered moving back to DFW for MSR prior to this track.

Up next, more pics and youTube.

Lotus Exige Track Video


Lotus Spin, notice the light system at the end of the video. They don't use flags except at the finish line.

Hustler made some noises earlier about an event that might happen. - Seems it did and word didn't get out very well...

Hopefully, next go 'round gets advertised.

I posted on the 14th in the Localize yourself forum, that forum doesn't get as much traffic though.

We need a TX Miata board.
