Re: Official PDX Lounge

PDX north checking in from the homestead. Today was an amazing day. Thanks for letting me come play. Sorry for being the slow car in intermediate. I was running 1:41-1:42 consistently. Time for more seat time and instruction.

I'm tired. Cheers. Goodnight.

Oh dur I see now. The yellow bubbble shows your fastest lap of the session. Really solid driving on your part Aidan.

It was fun watching you and Ryan go at it. When I came up on you guys it was easy to see you guys were cookin'.

Overall a really great track day. Except for Don's car burning, could have done without that.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

As an example, my optimal time was a 1:30.97 but I never actually ran that lap time. Actual lap times below. A few laps in a row I had no major traffic, really happy with the consistency I've gotten there. That's been a huge challenge for me.

aidandj No it's not. My fastest was 1:33.07. Optimal was 1:33.04

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Um Aidan, that's not your lap time tho. That's the optimal lap time if you put all your best sectors together. What was your fastest actual lap?

It was an absolute blast out there. My first time at PIR in the MSM back in October 2014 I managed a 1.33x at 300 whp. Today I did 1:31.3 several laps, with 230 whp and losing power through turn 6 from fuel starvation (spent probably 2 seconds with no power at all).

All in all I learned about the car and about myself. Lots more time on the table. Looking forward to trying PIR again.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I can't feel the difference between 116 and 165. Is that bad?

The lap times and cars I can hang with don't lie but seat of the pants feels similar LOL
Today 12:06 AM
aidandj I'm really happy with 150-160hp. Just enough to not get left on the straights but not too much where I can't use all of it.

I'd like a safe 180-190hp tune so I'll hit the dyno before the end of the season.

What's in your head for Smurf??

Martin's SBC RPF1s looked so good on your car.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Good times ryan! I think the best I managed with 185hp was a 133.5 or something like that. That's right around when I was picking up pace and decided it would be a little smarter to learn on 106hp, and I managed a 135.xx I think.

aidandj I would probably move to advance too, too many reallllly slow cars in intermediate.
Yesterday 11:00 PM
Re: Official PDX Lounge

Yeah super fun with you Aidan. Best my car has ever been as well, obviously. Good torque, I really begun to have a lot of confidence in the brakes, NO rear sway, and still playful enough. Plus I'm just feeling more confident.

Martin took me out in my car and ran a 134.2, we dropped pressures to 34/32 and I went back out and hit 134.3. I'm plenty happy with that. Then Greg went out with me and for the full last session. He gave me multiple spots were I should be using more of the track and then gave me the thumbs up for moving to advanced group if I'd like. Intermediate was pretty full and I would get held up preventing from getting multiple clean hot laps together. Except the last session, I think a lot of guys bailed by then.
It was a great group of Miata gays....err I mean guys today.
I've got pics to come.

Clinks 944 burnt down today. That poor man. There's got to be a less risky sport for him.

Like foam pit swimming.

Time to start carrying a fire extinguisher in the car if you don't already. [emoji91][emoji91][emoji91]

No vids of your car. :/

I noticed it in the last session you ran, I think. Big flame.

Got any vids?

Track day was awesome. Car was 3 seconds faster than October. And I only drove one event between now and then. Combination of tires, suspension, and a couple more cajones.

Had a blast chasing ryan, at low boost I didn't pull very hard on him at all, maybe 75% throttle.

Updates on track day?

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Looks like it rides like an old Cadillac... Carries that wave from the curbs in 12 down the straight. That's all I can say. Haven't chatted with Martin.

How's my smurf doing?

aidandj Picked up a second so far on my times from October. Quite a bit more on the table too.

You made it to the track. Have that going for you.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

James don't know where you've wondered off too, but talk to Martin about the extra gopro mount in the smurf if you are still looking.
