  1. Is there a contact person at ECR at I might inquire about storing my trailer after the race until December? im temporarily relocating to Colorado from Austin and I’m would prefer not to drive all the way back to Austin and then to Colorado post race?
  2. Looking for a turn-key system. Austin area preferred. Will use for Road Racing practice Anyone know of a good, budget setup?
  3. Does anyone in/around Austin have one of these rigs... I'm thinking about building a system and on paper (and video) like what I see here -- but it's not cheap. Cheaper than most motion equipment, but still not cheap. Would be 100% used for iRacing or similar to improve my real track driving. Mike
  4. I almost ought that car 🙂 Ended up with a local Cayman S instead. GLWS Mike
  5. hoping to get back up there soon -- but I'll be at MSR-C racing with PCA? Why they have two events on the same weekend this close to each other is a mystery? I'm surprised the Club Race isn't taking it on the chin without DE support. Mike
  6. The wife has always hated the Corvette -- she might actually tolerate this one...
  7. We'll be camped out in my RV up top -- please stop by and say hello and enjoy the a beverage and some AC 🙂
  8. Wow -- 45 Cars -- that's going to be a lot for H2R -- the paddock if not the track! and surprise there's only 20 Miatas 🙂
  9. Might be pitting next to you -- Running an E30 #256. You running Josh's Miata? Mike
  10. I think it depends on how many G's your going to pull for the oil, and temperature for the engine. If you are blue solo or better -- ..... Unfortunately there's no oil temp or oil pressure gauges on Caymans. Also the temp gauge will almost always be pinned to 175 -- and your real temperature will be unknown. YMMV, but I put 10K miles on a 100K mile Boxster S with that above combo and used Amsoil 20W/50 racing oil. Didn't have any problems. And I'm repeating the same before ever hitting the track. I am an instructor and racer, and I'll drive the snot out of it, but I'd rather do some preventative work than have a failure at the track and/or do an engine swap. Mike
  11. Reliability: Center Radiator & 997 Oil/H2O heat exchanger to lower engine temps Deep Sump, at least 1/2qt & EBS Baffle or equivalent to help prevent oil starvation. 4" Underdrive pulley to save the PS pump. Radiator and heat exchanger might be optional, but here in Texas, heat is a killer, and thats a weak spot on the Caymans. For brakes, Pagid Orange. There maybe some other modifications, but I think these are a good basic set.
  12. Just picked up a Cayman S to be my drive to the track car... I race SPB, used to have a Boxster S drive to the track car... It wasn’t that fast in a straight line, but she made up for it in the twisters. i expect the cayman to be the same or better just need to find time for the reliability mods and go quick parts. mike
  13. Not sure if he does house calls -- but Frederico del Toro of the 911 motors (I think that's the name) is a racer and should be able to assist. Another place is Jones Autoworks. Mike
  14. I don't Irace, and I haven't seen the track walk video -- but I have walked the track a couple times. What I learned was elevation subtleties, curb heights and depths and multiple camber in the corners. Mike
  15. Excellent to know, hopefully sometime later this year. Wishfully sooner, but probably later 🙂
