Sorry to break it to you, but a Turbo/S is not a very good track car. No offense, but it's too soft, too heavy, AWD, too much torque and too fast for newbies. All of that leads to parking in the...

Are the Ferodos brand new? And are you willing to split them (I just need 3051W)?

I assume they are DS1.11?

You know, it's pretty much every year there's some type of huge pile up or crash at Macau, whether it's Porsche Supercup or otherwise. And every year there's talk of they should stop racing there...

That's really an unfair thing to say.

I have almost 200 days at various tracks. Let's jog animal sightings from memory:

1) WGI (track I go to most often) = 1 groundhog.
2) VIR (numerous...

I've been running Boxster Spyders without the top on racetracks for years and never had a problem (other than rain). Wind, air pressure, etc., are non-issues. It can get chilly on cold wintry days,...

I almost hit a fawn driving to SP last year then almost hit another fawn driving to SP last weekend. Both within 5 miles of the track!

Summit Point has a SERIOUS problem that they've been ignoring for years. I've seen and watched MANY deer hits at SP Main and I don't even go to that track often.

I was there also and saw the same...

Much less pressure gain in my Spec Miata - definitely less than 10 psi. SMs are much lighter and we don't brake much, so less heat transfer to wheels and tires. Similar driving style - aggressive.

I won't get into an argument and several posts were TLDR, but I will verify that I regularly get OVER 10 psi hot pressure jumps. For example, I start at 26 psi then end up at 38 hot (too high for...

I often wonder how essential this is. I know that almost all race cars have them and most tracked-out cars also do, but how critical is it? I also know that Bodymotion is a big proponent and they've...

Just FYI.
