  1. Fab work looks good! What are you going to use to paint it?
  2. Ended up bringing the Golf R daily rather than the XR4Ti (found some potential safety issues that needed to be addressed on the XR). Wholly heck the R is wayy too much car for my skills right now, but leaving the nannys on kept things under control. I didn't feel/ see traction control cutting in until the last session when it was hot, I was over-driving the car and I had roasted my tires. Had a great time, still much to learn. I ran racechrono on a 10Hz GPS antenna, but I haven't dug into the data yet..
  3. Are you using a 10 Hz GPS antenna with Harry's or just the internal GPS? 10Hz antenna makes ALL the difference. Garmin GLO (&GLO2), or Qstars (https://www.amazon.com/Qstarz-BT-Q818XT-Channel-Bluetooth-Receiver/dp/B003YCZINA/ref=sr_1_1?crid=FLPNBEND388U&keywords=qstarz+gps&qid=1559845782&s=gateway&sprefix=qstars%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-1) are cheap and work. I use a GLO2 with RaceChrono and it does a good job. Obviously AIM will be better, but for fairly little investment, this works.
  4. Driver has purchased another escort GT shell, (which already has a rally cage) and will rally on! Press on Regardless (POR)

    Then, that's shifter. That's like buying a ridiculously overpowered/ twitchy car to do your first track day. Edit: Also like buying a 1000CC sports bike just after getting your motorcycle license, you're sure go fast, but hard to learn anything of substance quickly.
  7. It was in the middle of a turn, and we had two more further up the road. It's a regulation to put the last triangle on the top of the car when you're not continuing 🙂
  8. x2, and the trifecta is after they're rubber wrapped, to zip tie them together so there's no movement.
  9. HA, I suppose that counts but that sure is different!
  10. It's always a lot of fun! Until it isn't. If it was my car, I may have tried to repair and start for the second day, but the windshield would have been hard to fix.
  11. Popped that cherry, had an unfortunate roll while navigating in the 2019 Dirtfish Olympus Rally. 26 events in before rolling, pretty good run! Roll cages are there for a reason, thank goodness for good safety gear, the driver and I were both totally uninjured. Car was mechanically fine, but needs a lot of bodywork...
  12. And if you're in DFW, check out GSPEED, on site at MSR Cresson.
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I think this first go round I'll sand the rotors and bed them on the track. I'll leave the track pads in and see how it goes on the street, it rarely sees street driving (mostly to/from track or autocross). If it's too squeaky/ too cold for the material, I'll get another set of rotors and swap both next time.
  14. Looking good! Good choice!
  15. I'm signed up for the June 4th event, glad to make it back to the track!
