  1. New (to me) car, first time at Hallett in several years. Ohhh man I forgot how much I love this place! Track: Hallett 1.8CW Date: 4-24-22 Lap Time: 1:24.85 (AIM Data & Mylaps) Car: 2013 FR-S Estimated Weight w/Driver: 2900 Estimated WHP: ~285 Tires: 245/40/17 Hoosier R7 Suspension: KW Clubsport Weather: High 60sF, overcast, strong crosswinds Best time was on Saturday, but I had a few minutes of free time Sunday and stuck a GoPro in the footwell for some footcam video. Best lap on Sunday was a 1:24.95 on lap 15 of the race:
  2. $tealo. Can be bought with hearing protection, radio, and water thingies just like the BA you've got now. Just don't be surprised when it's 4x the price of Chinesium.
  3. Amazing what you can buy for $400 on the domestic market. a blowed up core engine for my FRS sells for 500-1000..
  4. Smoooooth is fast! Car looks so composed on the video. I'm bouncing all over the track and sawing at the wheel to get under a 1:46, but the car should be able to do 1:42s with correct setup and driver.. I need to figure out shock setup better (and then get better at driving it)

    That sounds great, but I'm on a work machine with stupid NetNannies and they report to my boss if it thinks I'm looking at anything with skin on it.

    Is this gonna be the new Don't Delete Me Thread?
  7. My 2013 already handles pretty well. with the supercharger it's got decent power (~285whp), but still only 100 torques at 7000rpm. it seriously lacks grunt coming out of the turns, but you do get thru the turns pretty quick. I would love to see what the 2022 feels like if it's that much better, BUT I'd be afraid I have to buy one and dump another $30k into it because race car....
  8. It's a place where people post pictures of their pets, food, and whatever they think is important in their lives or makes them look more fortunate than their neighbors. I mostly go on there to laugh at the dregs of society, poke the political hot buttons, and prowl for pictures of attractive females.
  9. My car had some KTS coilovers ($1200 JDM-spec y0!) with some RUCAs to get camber in spec. Suspension Techniques (now just called ST I think) front sway bar, no rear bar. otherwise I didn't do much to the suspension. Wing and splitter made ~3 sec worth of difference at MSR though. 17x8 wheels running either BFG R1 or Hoosier R7. The car felt better on Hoosiers, but was faster on BFGs. the BFG had a little less lateral grip and felt squirrely, BUT the car was faster cause it wasn't so bound up in the turns. The Hoosiers had so much extra grip that the whole car would bind and slow
  10. Sooooo.. What kinda times did you run in your 240? Best I ran while the car was N/A was a 1.47.0 (The current owner has turbo'd the KA, but he's still running mid 1:5X and complaining it needs more speed to keep up with others in the class 😉 )
  11. All good. I shoulda been faster to catch the listing! 🙂
  12. I got the RX7 high centered on the bus stop curbing once. was leading my class until that happened. another driver who wasn't in my class did a low-chance pass on the inside of that turn and caused me to spin in the marbles, then I high centered on the curb.. lost the lead since I was stuck there for 2 laps until the tow truck pulled me off and I was able to get going again. urgh. had a few words with that driver since the pass was completely unnecessary- neither of us were near anyone in our respective classes, so they could have just waited for a better place to make a pass.
  13. dang! I'm too slow! If it doesn't get picked up or whatever, Id love to have second change dibs on it.
  14. Always a good weekend then! My kids raced karts at GCKI.. son missed the checker at the end of the practice session and creamed my daughter as she was exiting the track. the 5yr old chassis my son was driving barely got a scratch, but it completely taco'd the rear frame of daughter's 2021 chassis with only abut 10 races on it. I "straightened" it at the track with some pipes and crescent wrenches and she went on to win both the races, but the frame will never be the same. $1800 crunch
