That's for races, not the HPDE, cost is the same as a BMW day.

I love my A stars, great gloves.

"Had to go with A stars" what a burden! Haha. Great gloves. Hope you got ones with inverted stitching (so comfy, much wow).

Those are probably going to be superior. I'm probably going to be ordering OMP Sport gloves and shoes. Gotta have nomex stuff.

Ryan - take care of your gloves. They are no longer manufactured. Existing stock,once sold, is gone. There are no more size large. I had to go with Alpine Stars.

Instructor groups are a bonus though it seems that is phasing out.
Also, you get to feel all the different cars.

The trick is to not drive a lowly miata. Problem solved!

Re: Official PDX Lounge

The other benefit IMHO is the fact that you dont have to deal with guys in expensive cars with too much money/pride and not enough skill in advanced group with pretty much every club that hate to move over for a lowly miata and essentially can ruin your entire day if you get stuck behind them.

Ahh instructors. That would make the costs better, good luck.

I also hope to be there on the 5th.

Hooked on driving HPDE and instructor school, the latter is what Richard and I will be participating in
Good news on the NB front, mike informed me that the motor should ship out today.
In other news, josh and I buttoned up his car yesterday afternoon after I finished a final, and lo and behold the clutch is still slipping, therefore it is glazed.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Good points Martin; I've asked Don how hard we will be working the cars on Thursday.

I still have my XP8's (I think), I'll probably throw those on there. The front ducts are easily blocked with my FIA-certified gaffers' tape.

As my weather app currently predicts thunderstorms thursday, I'm leaving the RR's in the basement, safely coddled in their cashmir tire cozies.

I am very curious to hear Mobius' review having just come off of Carbotechs.

I am only doing BMW club. Can't wait!

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Richard I was responding to lightw8's post. I would recommend not running the cobalts in the wet, they never really heat up and you'll just chew throught them. Especially with the brake ducts you have. And especially on a day where we won't be driving 10/10ths

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Oh Martin asked me if I was going full MOBIUS and putting the wing on for this Thursday. I said no. I lied. The car is now full MOBIUS'ed. Wing and cobalt pads installed. Installation lap around the neighborhood completed. I hope for a wet or at least damp day so that the gopro of others can catch the awesome vortices off the wing.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I am doing BMW. Full weekend events are not an option for me atm.

The 8 people in that plane were wearing perfectly good parachutes. I don't understand why they didn't, umm, jump the fuck out? I mean, when the pilot bails, you KNOW it's time to leave, regardless of your skill level, right? Right?

I am fortunate that somehow my wife has defined Track Days in the "acceptable risk" category. Skydiving is right out.

Flyin I wouldn't mind seeing the progress as well. You needs to host a tech day! Preferably during school hours please, and no excuses about "I have to work during the day." Jeez that's lame!

Chris we are going July 12th.
Anyone doing the NASA time trials/track day may 3/4?
Or is everyone doing the BMW day instead?

Re: Official PDX Lounge

This weekend I removed the dash harness in search of a short in the oil pressure sender wire. Found it. now I have a giant mess of unwrapped dash harness.

BTW, did you know that your car will start without the dash harness plugged in?

Also: in the on-going saga of my car becoming a track rat:
headlights, motors, etc all available. i have them available for someone that might need them. also turn signals (front)...
