  1. It was nice to see the awning getting fixed. This was my first time there but my wife said it was rather nice up. I will say the temperature under the canopies was very nice! I will most likely get a spot next go round and if I need to get to the trailer for anything just drive to the trailer spot.

    Let me get 3-4 events under my belt first and then I will definitely consider this. 2:15 my first time out I think I have much to improve and would hope I can shave at least 10 seconds off that time myself by going a few more times.

    You sir I approve of. I have a brand new set of 275 R888R rubber on another set of wheels ready to go. Novice/green they limit me to street tires so I'm running a smaller 255 200tw federal tire which limits the car a bunch. The car is actually use to R6/R7 hoosiers when my uncle drove it. Let me get my trans fixed and we'll figure out how to make this happen. I need some good feedback on the car

    ya... i feel bad for the car... hasn't been on street tires in 13 years and surely hasn't been driven so poorly. I have to admit though the amount of stuff you got to go through it's way harder than I ever thought. I just need alot more seat time. I sure wish someone else would drive my car and at least show me what it can make at MSR

    Got brakes? I'm pretty sure the car is capable of a 1:39 lap on slicks with my uncle driving it but not this slow poke. car has 11,900 miles now and about 9500 is all on the track. I bought it from my uncle who built it and was an instructor. WTF is a green novice doing driving an 577rwhp instructor level car? That is why I was taking it slow. I got the car 4 months ago and have only put 125 miles on the odometer. Fun fact is over the weekend I put 142 track miles on the car. I now have more track experience with my car than I do street lol. So not only was it my first event ever... it was the first time in this car. Can't you see why I was being cautious?

    Nice job! On the power I never really noticed a loss of power. I wasn't pushing the car as hard as you guys though as it was my first time ever in the car and first time on any track so I was taking things slow. I might of dropped about 50hp or so but the car still pulled like a sum bitch. 03' cobra with a whipple 14psi making 577rwhp and probably around 3900lbs w/ driver and instructor One thing I did do was drop in a can of torco pushing the octane up to around 96. You may want to give that a try. I think the only thing saved me was the fact I was running about 5/10ths I would hit the straights hard and brake but rest of the time was pretty much granny mode by the way everyone was passing me

    yup agreed. Ya I wished I had a bit more push now for what I could and couldn't do. I kinda zoned in one certain things and now that I've actually been on the track and looking at other videos I can tell there is SO much I'm needing improvement on. Had a blast but ended up having trans issues which kept me from running my last session today. Gotta get this fixed asap!

    Great job man. My first time ever on any track and while I did not track my lap times according to the gopro video I'm around a sad 2:15 lap. Turns out... I'm slow as fuck and my car is in desperate need of a driver mod! My brain is in overload and I've already crashed once right when I got home.
  9. Nice, thanks for the tip. I'll have to check it out. I would think that is what people want. I'll have all my tools and stuff in the trailer in case they are needed. At the drag strips you park next to the trailer and you have everything there. Same for mile events. I'll figure it all out on Friday night though.
  10. It is an odd question. Mostly because I'm 100% newb never been to any track other than the dragstrip. This will be my first time there.
  11. and to think I just wanna run my little ol 1800w inverter thats quiet as can be. It all comes down to how TDE has their layout done. Not sure if I'll be parking by the trailer or staging it closer.
  12. Ok Thank you. Sorry but I've never been there before but my first event is TDE 9/14-15. I'm still unclear of the whole parking situation for the trailers and such. I got a map from TDE but it made it seem that you have to park the trailer in one spot and the cars must go in another. I know I'll figure things out when I get there but didn't want to haul anymore than I have to since I'm towing with a 1/2 ton.
  13. what is the rules for generators at the track? i will be bringing an enclosed trailer and wanting to run a small inverter style 2kw to run some fans is all. is this allowed?
  14. I was planning on an enclosed trailer left hooked to my truck. I have a popup tent I can use for shade and I suppose I can drive the car into the trailer if it rains but rain won't melt the car or anything ya know.
  15. I'm assuming they were damaged in some way? I've never been there before. My first event is 9/14 next month though. Is the canopies reserved for use or first come first serve? I'm a little unsure of how the typical operation of an event works. I'll be that noob at the track asking all the dumb questions lol
  16. We calibrate annually for everything at work. I should do my personal ones though.
  17. I'm shooting for a promotion at work which will free up my weekends permanently. If I am successful with this then I will become a member. Until then I need all the instruction I can get with as much seat time as I can get. With that being said I definitely need as much seat time and instruction until then. If your being open on that offer I'll definitely want to hook up to discuss further.
  18. Great advice thank you and I completely agree. When I said "get the instructor out of my car". I have full expectations of about 30 events of having an instructor, possibly more, so understand I am modest and very patient. However, I am driven to succeed and that is my goal is to get to instructor level. The only way to get there is to have 2 big ears and tons of seat time. ....just please don't tell the wife how much $ this will end up costing me to achieve this goal LOL
  19. Had a very nice talk with the guy who runs TDE Rick and he was very helpful with a bunch of questions I had. I have one adjustment to make to the mounting of my submarine belt but after that seems like I'll be ready to attend 🙂
  20. I figured it was more based on the awareness. This is why I've spent 3hrs now watching youtube videos on a CCW setup to try to memorize the track. I've even tested myself by scrolling to different positions on the videos with my eyes closed let it play open my eyes and 9/10 times I know exactly where they are on the track. I did receive a pointer from another driver that I need to do that but know the "names" of the turns like gut check and such and I should be able to call out the next turn by name in this same manner. I'm not sure where the flag locations are at yet but I can say Yes my main goal is to run smooth lines and know the track/flags etc like a hawk. I figure thats my quickest path to getting the instructor out of my car. Also.... I really hope that instructor isn't too big or too small. My seat is hard bolted with no adjustments. Hope that isn't an issue. While I don't have a problem for an instructor to drive my car I'd hate to be rude to quiz them on what type of car they are use to driving. I've never done this before so unsure of the process for a first time out.
  21. I wonder how many usually run in the novice group at this next event. Also, how long it takes to get out of novice group? I'm still clueless how long It'll take me to solo.
  22. Is this a Porsche only event?
  23. Well my biggest issue is the fact I'm away from the house from 5am to 6pm for work usually 6 days a week so in order to do any of this I literally have to miss work. So going to a shop further away just means more missed time. It's not a money issue... just the fact I'm the supervisor on site in charge and I have over 150 workers on my project right now. Kinda keeps me put.
