  1. I just signed up. Weather looks good. Anyone else planning to go??? Cheers, Joe
  2. Track: 3.1 Date: Mar 20, 2021 Lap Time: 2:25.7 (Solo DL) Car: 2009 Cayman S Weight with driver: 3250 WHP: ~300 Tires: RE-71R Weather: 55* F, Sunny This was right after they repaved the 1.7. I managed to improve my PB a bit.
  3. The good news is the grip is much better in the wet on the 1.7. I was there today (Monday 3/22/2021) in a steady rain and the new surface was much better than the 1.7 of old. Word is the contractor will be back at the end of April to remediate the bumps. Hopefully that will yield good results. As I mentioned above, the grip level is pretty good on the new surface. I set a new PB and I expect others will too. In this video, the bumps don't reveal themselves fully, but you'll get a sense of the new surface.
  4. It's kinda bumpy. They resurfaced in sections, so the joints between sections are bumpy. The straight right after ricochet has a couple of these joints with others elsewhere.. The big bump going from the 1.3 to the 1.7 is still there; maybe a bit worse. It's not my style to be negative, but I was expecting better. Now, I'm not an expert on paving, so perhaps there is something they can do to smooth out the seams. Grip seems good, particularly in rattlesnake. Having said all that, I did manage to set a new PB (2:25.7). I'd be interested in what others who were there today think.
  5. I'll be there. Also staying for the Edge Addicts Monday Funday on the 3.1.
  6. Thanks all for the info re: PCA. I just signed up for TDE at Cresson in early Feb so I'll pass on this event. I'll find another time to get into the PCA system. @BobKid I'll also be at Cresson with Edge Addicts on the Monday deal so perhaps I'll see you there.
  7. @BobKid I haven't been to any pca events. How onerous is their process for getting into their system?
  8. I also run RE71Rs on my Cayman S track car, so here is another data point for you. First, my usage is a bit different than yours in so far as this is mainly a track car and driven on the road mostly just to get to the track. However, since my preferred track is MSRC and I live just outside Austin, the miles on the car/tires is about 67% road/33% track (360 mile round-trip + 180 miles on track for a single-day event) I get about 4 track days (six 30 minute sessions/day) on a set so I'm replacing them approximately every three months. They never really get old, just worn out.
  9. Track: CoTA Date: 12/13/2020 3PM (Edge Addicts event) Lap Time: 2:33.9 (AIM SoloDL) Car: 2009 Porsche Cayman S Weight with Driver: 3250 (pre COVID-19. The driver might weigh a little more these days) WHP: ~300 Tires: new RE-71Rs It was nice being back to COTA after a 1.5 year absence. I managed to improve my previous PB by 1.2 seconds. I threw away .6 second on this lap when I had to completely lift off the throttle about 75 meters before the start/finish line to let a Porsche GT3 by. It pained me to lift, but I had given him/her a point at the star
  10. We built a new building 7 years ago that included another "garage". We originally chose epoxy, but after three failed attempts by the installer, we switched to porcelain tile. Our application is different from yours though: this room doesn't see any "wrenching, fluid changes (and fluid spills), heavy floor jacks, possibly engine replacements, etc.". We have had some liquids spill on the tiles and it cleaned up nicely. I've included some shots of the tile below. Having said all that, for your application I would choose epoxy. Just get a good company to install it or do it yourself.
  11. Yeah, I'm in the Red Run Group. Me and Piglet don't have what it takes to go <2:30 at COTA ?
  12. I'll be there also on Sunday 12/13. You'll have a great time. I'll be in a garage somewhere. White Cayman S, #25. Stop by and say howdy. My name is Joe.
  13. Track: 3.1 Date: Nov 16, 2020 Lap Time: 2:26.3 (Solo DL) Car: 2009 Cayman S Weight with driver: 3250 WHP: ~300 Tires: RE-71R Weather: 70, Sunny I over-slowed for ricochet and was sloppy in several places, but still managed to cut a second off my previous PB.
