  1. 1.7CW on Sat -> 1.7 CCW on Sunday -> 3.1 CCW on Monday Who's in?
  2. It was great meeting and running with y'all as well! Yeah, Piglet was happy to be back on-track after a three month summer hiatus. I was happy to start to knock the rust off my driving and rediscover all the muscles that get a good workout in a day at the track 😉
  3. I'll be there 🙂 BTW, @BobKid, I meant to stop by and introduce myself at the last Monday Funday in June. I'll come by and say Howdy at the next one in Sep..
  4. Still some spots open for this event. The weather is going to be perfect. Come on, you know you want to take a well deserved day off work and treat yourself to a day at the track 🙂
  5. Edge Addicts will be having another one of their Monday Fundays on the 3.1. Might be a bit chilly, but I plan to be there. Cheers!
  6. Yeah, I need to investigate better cooling. Right now, I'm using GT3 ducts which is better than stock but not good enough. I've applied brake temp paint to the rotors a couple times this year (at COTA and MSR) and consistently run at 1,400 degrees F. Brake performance is still good, but as noted, brake life is not so good. I think more ducting will be the primary thing on the to-do list this winter.
  7. They are/were Ferodo DS1.11 pads. This is the third set I've used this year and I got similar results with the other sets. Three days reduces the pads to less than 50% of material remaining (= 2+mm per day). I used to use PFC08's and would get five days on them. So far, the DS1.11's are much kinder to my (Sebro) rotors, which is the reason I switched. Here is a photo from the previous set. . . . Queue brake pad debate and braking technique critique.
  8. Yeah, this is the second time I've done the Triple Play event and it was great again this year. Perfect weather. Met some old friends and made some new ones. I had some new RE-71R's drop-shipped to Doghouse and had them mounted after session 4 on Sunday which made Monday on the 3.1 much more fun. I had installed a fresh set of front brake pads before I went to the track. Wish I had brought another set for Monday 😞; live and learn. But again, it was a great event. Looking forward to next year.
  9. I plan to be there. This is a really fun event with lots of varied track time.
  10. I just signed up for Edge Addicts' next event on the 3.1 this coming Monday. Anyone else here planning to go???
  11. @Talley you can definitely sign up, but like @jwdm said, sign up soon to make sure you get an instructor. Then, get ready for a great learning experience. I live 50 miles from COTA so going there is easy, but I still learn more every time I come to Cresson. Hope to see you in October.
  12. I've been to several of these Edge Addicts Monday Fundays on the 3.1 and they are great. Small run groups and up to four hours of track time if you have the stamina. Plus, EA provides a very nice lunch with brisket, sausage, and the fixings. They even accommodate us vegetarians with nice options. I participated in the most recent Monday event this week (along with @BigMonkey73 and perhaps other TJs) and it was a great time. Hopefully 10/21 will be cooler. Hope to see some of y'all there on 10/21. Cheers! https://shop.edgeaddicts.com/MSR-Cresson-31-October-21st-2019-MSR-Oct-21.htm
  13. You’ve listed the usual suspects. I’ve used, and been very happy with moorespeed (south Austin) and TPWS (north) for my Cayman s. Both are great.
  14. Like others have said, it was hot but a lot of fun. It was great meeting and hanging out a bit with @BigMonkey73. I didn't set any PB but worked on some basics and improved in some areas. I prefer the 1.7 ccw but that's because I have more experience with that direction, so it was good getting more time going CW. The crazy part was the drive home (to Lago Vista NW of Austin). I left at the third session on Sunday trying to beat the storm but no dice. Got slammed from just south of Granbury to Lampasas (100 miles). I always tell folks going to their first track day, the most dangerous thing you will do on that day is drive to and from the track. Sure was the case yesterday. Bad_weather.mov
