  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I plan to be there. This is a really fun event with lots of varied track time.
  6. I just signed up for Edge Addicts' next event on the 3.1 this coming Monday. Anyone else here planning to go???
  7. @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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. I'll be there on Sunday (3/17) in Piglet, my white '09 Cayman S, #25.
  12. "Did they post a link of pictures? I haven't gotten an email yet." I think they are sorting through all the photos now and suspect a link will be sent out soon. The photo above was just one they chose to use for their Facebook page.
  13. It was kinda cool seeing a photo of Piglet on the Edge Addicts Facebook page! The event was a lot of fun even with the couple wet areas. Plus, I always meet new people that enjoy what we do at the track. Good times.
  14. I've been to all the F1 races at COTA except one and it's always been General Admission for us. All the spots Matt93SE mentioned are good for F1 as well. Over the years we have watched from the slopes just before T19, T1 for qualy, and most often T7. We like the T7 area because you can see Turns 6-7-8 and also you can see the last half of the back straight in the distance. If you sit a little lower on the slope in T7, you can see a large TV screen to the left which allows you to see activity elsewhere on the track. Plus, T7 is very near a Beer Garden. Priorities. There's also a long grassy area leading into T11 which is nice. You might see some passing there. I just remembered that there is a SMALL grassy area between grandstands at T15 (the stadium area). It will be crowded but if you can get a good spot you get a good view of T12 through T16ish. Cheers!
