  1. Just to offer a comparison, obviously separated by a LOT of distance....pricing for MSRH is very similar to ECR (which is a FANCY / AMAZING track): Eagle - $5,000 Initiation / $250 Monthly Dues Platinum - $10,000 Initiation / $500 Monthly Dues
  2. I appreciate your candor on the track surface - that truly sucks!! I hope for your sake - and for all enthusiasts - that Cresson will do it RIGHT! I know that it was painful when ECR did it right....there was MASSIVE engineering / testing done *before* any work on the track....and then it was ALL torn up....and started FRESH, from the ground up! I witnessed a LOT of it first-hand...it was CRAZY!!! But totally WORTH it!
  3. DO IT!! I'll even vouch for you! You know that we have an approval committee...right? I barely got in...LOL...no, there's not an approval committee...and I KNOW that you'd be a GREAT member to have at ECR!!!
  4. FANTASTIC day at ECR!!! Official debut of the 2.2 mile #off-road track at #eaglescanyonraceway - we spent a few hours giving taxi rides to members and showing them the thrill of the dirt!!! I cut a tire on the last trip out there, no worries, new tires on the way!! Tim Williams running the 2.2 mile ECR off-road track. Drone pilot / footage by “Dozer” Paul…he also BUILT the track and maintains it to a high standard! It’s AWESOME!! The video goes through two full laps of excitement!!
  5. The Autocross / Roadrace subforum is legit though....the rest of it....a LOT of stupid....and such.
  6. Nice! Now get those bushy eyebrows out!! And get ready to run from the lads.....Zeuss.....Apollo!!!!
  7. Interesting stuff...so...you've torn it down...the fun part is ahead...putting it back together...correctly...better you than me! Curious if you'll need more tools...or is this a case of "tighten it all to torque spec and it's all good?" (since you're not putting in a new R & P?).
  8. Very pretty! I've been wearing my aloha shirts lately....
  9. If you every come run at ECR I'm more than willing to help you - in the paddock or on pit lane! So...with bias ply's on our 2,830 lb tube frames we'd start at 17-18 cold with a target of 26-28 hot - really 27-28 hot. An idea: start out with a little higher pressure and go make a few laps...bring the car into hot pit...have your helper take pyro readings across all 4 tires...then drop 2 psi and repeat...several times.
  10. Resisting as much as I can! LOL The shop where my car is at is also a full-blown CVAR / SVRA shop...must say no!! LOL! As you can imagine, there is all kinds of cool vintage eye-candy (and speed) there!
  11. Very nice!! What size tires? I used to run bias ply on my GTA and my previous TA2...they were 27/10-15 though...probably more of a balloon than you've got...we still run very similar cold/hot pressures in our similar sized Pirelli Radials though....what are you starting at? It almost looks like you might be running too little of pressure (wear on the outside edges). I'm no tire expert though...it'd be worth it to get pyro readings across the tread though.
  12. I've put donuts on Porches...free of charge!!! 🤪
