    Blue 2017 Chevy Camaro SS 1LE
  1. Nice, I'm planning to be there just Monday for the 3.1 in my SS 1LE. I have done the 1.7 both ways in past years but this will be my first time on the big track...hopefully I can chase you to learn the line faster!
  2. This is the first time I have seen a track walk available for MSRH since I started doing HPDEs there in 2015 but I wasn't really looking for them the first few years. "Experienced drivers will walk and talk you through the intricacies of this road course." Looks like the direction will be intentionally kept secret beforehand. I did a track walk of COTA as part of the Austin Schnell Fest event last fall and definitely picked up some good tips for faster laps and saw things that are not noticeable while driving even on slower cool down laps. I am definitely planning to go to this one! The next day (Friday 7/16) they also have a time attack ($225 + optional $40 transponder rental, 1-5pm, 4x20 minute sessions per group) and track sprint ($75, 5-7pm, 2x 30 minute sessions per group). I am hoping to make it to the track sprint too. They use autocross style starting/finishing beams for track sprint so transponders are not used but you are also not required to run a transponder for time attack if you don't want to compete for official lap times so you could treat it more like a track day if you wanted. I heard that last time beginner and intermediate time attack groups required point bys and only allowed passing on the straights. Car numbers on each side are required for both time attack and track sprint. Pants are now required for just the time attack portion; shorts are ok for track sprint. Here is video from the last track sprint they did at the end of May for those not familiar with the format which was a standing start and most of a lap with nothing blocking the usual line then wait in a line for a few minutes on the pit straight then run again and repeat until the session time is up: Race Groups Time Attack: Green Group - Novice - 8 spots still available Yellow Group - Intermediate - 3 spots still available Red Group - Advanced - 6 spots still available Groups will be limited to 15 novice, 12 intermediate, and 10 advanced drivers so that everyone has plenty of room to get their best run and have the best experience with their cars. Other places run 25 cars per session, and we are limiting the groups because we want everyone to be able to do what they need to do on the track. Race Groups Track Sprint: Group A - 4 Cylinder - 7 spots still available Group B - 6 Cylinder, 8 Cylinder, Forced Induction - 5 spots still available Groups will be limited to 15 total 4 cylinder cars and 15 total 6 cylinder, 8 cylinder, and forced induction cars for maximum runs. We learned a lot the Saturday of the last event, and on Sunday, people got 9 runs. https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/houston-2020-time-trials-2-msr-scca-430987 Attached screenshot from Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/houstonscca/posts/?ref=page_internal
  3. I'm not a member but would also be interested in tagging along for a clockwise day (weekend or weekday) if a member is already planning to go. Also does anyone know if/when the hours will be changed back to 8am-5pm from 9am-3pm? If the guest price remains the same then I would prefer to wait for normal hours to resume.
  4. With or without wheels is fine as long as they will fit on my 2017 Camaro SS 1LE without any clearance issues. For reference stock sizes are 285/30/20 and 305/30/20. May be interested in a set of 2 if they are priced well but a set of 4 would be preferred. Not expecting to find a pair quickly so please let me know if you have some for sale yourself or know of some even if it is many months after this post. I'm looking to try them out for a few local autocross events without committing to buying a new set at around $1500!
  5. Late to the party but I finally created a TrackJunkies account so I'll drop my best lap from the weekend here. It was nice meeting you guys! It was my 3rd time at this track but first time here with this car and first time at a NASA event and I had a great time! I got bumped up from HPDE3 to HPDE4 and there was another yellow Camaro SS 1LE in my run group to help me out with some advice! I also really enjoyed chasing and being chased by the white Porsche Cayman S with Hoosiers that was running very similar lap times.
  6. Long time lurker; finally made an account. It was nice that I got to meet some of you at the NASA NOLA event last month! Here is my best lap from the event on Saturday. Any advice and suggestions are welcome! Date: 11/23/2019 CW lap time: 1:47.32 Car: 2017 Chevy Camaro SS 1LE Est weight: 3747 lbs curb weight Est WHP: 415 (455hp crank) Tires: Stock Goodyear Supercar 3 285/30ZR-20 front and 305/30ZR-20 rear Temperature: about 65°F Notes: I shaved over 3 seconds off of my previous personal best at MSRH CW thanks to chasing a C7 Corvette Grand Sport during some of the sessions which was a lot of fun! His best laps were 1:43s though so traffic was the main thing allowing me to keep him in sight for a few laps. The cooler weather and SCCA time attack event the day before probably helped too. Really looking forward to running CCW the next time I go back since I still haven't done that direction in the Camaro. I have been to MSRH on 5 days since I got the car and they have all been CW.
