  1. A non-HVAC controlled garage will not be the friend of a R-compound or R-compound'ish tire like a RE71R. Between potentially freezing temperatures up to high heat, it ages the compound. On a different note, I have used the RE71R in 305/30/19 on 11" front and 12" rear wheels. With the RE71R going away, and the replacement 'S' version not in many sizes let alone available here, you might try the Goodyear Supercar 3 (220TW) or the Supercar 3R (100TW). I have ran both driving to / from the track many time. Great tires in the dry, decent in the wet when new(er).
  2. Gotcha. I like whatever mic set up you have - where you hear the exhaust nicely with minimal wind noise.
  3. bigjae46: The video laps were in the 2:26-2:27 or higher range. Where'd the 3-4+ second improvement come from to get 2:22.9?
  4. Depending on your size, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 (220TW) [Gen 6 SS 1LE and base ZL1 tire) is one to consider. Takes more warmup time than a RE71R or Yokohama A052, but, very good performance. https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/eagle-f1-supercar-3/sizes-specs
  5. https://www.motorsportranch.com/track-calendar/ PM me if you’re up this way sometime and my sons and I can have you as a guest. Edge Addicts runs a good program. There are two more 3.1 Monday Funday this year: 11/16, 12/14. The latter wasn’t on EA’s website yet.
  6. Geoff D will be up from Houston in a mostly stock 2020 Rally Green ZL1, Eddie D will be there in his stock 17 SS 1LE, and others. My red 17 SS 1LE has a ZL1 1LE nose on it (Dave). Geoff is doing the entire weekend, Eddie & I just the 3.1.
  7. For those coming from out of town (or not), you can do Chin 2.7 CCW ECR 11/14 & 11/15 then head to Cresson that Monday 11/16 for Edge Addicts 3.1. Get the best of both great tracks / configurations and HPDE providers!
  8. I was glad my son and I went and track remained dry most of day. The forecast in the last few days ahead of time went from sunny and dry to multiple inches of rain.
  9. His hands will burn up, and maybe his feet, too, if no good shoes on, but, at least he can keep his helmet on getting out the window. You can't fit a helmet through the window opening on my Gen 6 Camaro.
  10. For Members yesterday, Jack ran the 1.3 Clockwise for the first time supposedly. Ran a few sessions. I was out there with my sons. Quite the experience going over Leap of Faith the other way, down fast to the downhill short brake zone for the now right hand hairpin. Toilet Bowl was interesting, too. Heard he might even try the 3.1 CW. I assume this is to counter ECR running its three configurations both directions. Not me, but, still good video for reference:
  11. In - hope a nice dry cold front comes through prior!
  12. You might want to delete this or ask the Moderator to move it the ECR section.
  13. I'll be out there Sunday afternoon for the Open Track Day. I'll ask about the HPDE note if they don't respond to my email. On the configuration / direction of the day, it still would be nice if the mixed it up officially ahead of time, at least part of the time. At least the default is the big track!
  14. Brad, I sent an email to ECR - have not heard back yet as I'm sure they're buried in questions. If I bite on the deal, I'll give you as a referral. Three quick questions: 1) On the "all HPDE's" - can we run for free, or what % off, or explain, 2) Can you add a family member later for the normal $150/month, and 3) How often do / are they running all the other configurations besides the 2.7 CCW. Technically, I think they can run 6 (2.7 / 1.65 / 1.2 - all both directions). The online calendar doesn't say what configuration, or at least I don't see it - tell me how... Thanks. Dave
