DEs/Track Days: As frequently as possible; SCCA (have done some instructing) mostly

Autocross: It's been a while; hard to go back after being spoiled by track days (amount of seat time vs standing around).

Maybe its just me, but I have looked into thscc. And it seems a good deal more expensive than most other events. Maybe its partially because they dont have a work drive? Convince me otherwise please, I really feel like I missed something important...

I'd like to know this too. Also, I think its time Emilio went to Miata's at Hallet since Trey has TTD now.

They don't have a work-drive, but the events this year have been 4 25-30min sessions/day, so it gets close to the 100$/hr mark.

We should rename the forum Miataturboandtrack.net - seems like this is where the track nuts hang out

What is your alternative NASA? Personally, last time I went w/ NASA to Road Atlanta I got 4 20 minute sessions, and generally atleast 1 session per day got cut short due to one of the racers wrecking. A lot of the smaller clubs offer a more friendly environment, and lower participation numbers in exchange for more money. Its more about the experience than dollars/time.

Plus, I have to say my that both my NASA instructors have been...a bit lacking. THSCC instructors are much better. they don't mind teaching you multiple lines and letting YOU decide which one you like more. Nor do they complain about you not braking at the last turn if you were going to slow. And they certainly don't mind if you try to go a little faster in one place and it ends up being a bit hairy or you get all out of shape during it either. As long as you are learning...There is lots of little things, which I won't really get into too much, but you get the idea. Try out THSCC for one or two events and see how you like it, if you don't I would be seriously surprised.

Brake pedal went to the floor. Frantically tried to pump it up but nothing happened, accepted my fate and drove straight off because I didn't want to roll the car. Hitting gravel traps sideways = way bad.

Impact wasn't that bad. I haven't looked at the data yet but the car was slowed down pretty good by the time I hit the tire wall. Going up over the tire wall actually helped lessen the impact and damage to the car I think.
