Wow. I scraped that and put it over in miataturbo's craiglist thread for all posterity.

Just needs an intake and exhaust. And some electrical work. Oh, and seats!

If it was running and driving when he got it ... I mean, I can understand the wiring thing. So he broke something installing the head. OK, fine ... but WTF did he do with the seats? Or did he actually buy it without seats?

Go Cobalt, they just work. XR3 or XR2 for you maybe. Eddie will know. Even with the chicane PIR is pretty tough on brakes, and you must have confidence in your brakes.

Edit - DTC60 is fine too and a good choice. I ran them and liked them but they don't make a pad to fit the sport rears, and I want the same compound front/rear. Bonus they are cheep.

PIR Speed tips:
T12 exit speed, carries down the front straight
T4 entry speed and carrying speed through T4/5/6 combo
T7 exit speed, carries down the back straight
T10/11, braking late, carrying as much speed as possible through them by abusing the kerbing. Finding speed through T10/T11 is best done methodically, they are the highest speed corners on the track. Best to use the exit road for braking room runoff if necessary. Cold brakes, cold tires, not the time to bomb T10.

The cones for T10 and T11 are horribly wrong, or at least they were today. Ignore the cones. You early-ish apex both 10 and 11. Follow the shiny pavement and use as much kerb as possible.

Finally using the exit road to really widen the entry into T12, putting at least half the car over there when coming out of T11, with the goal of maximizing exit speed of T12.


Today was a blast. Thanks for the ride Ed, your car was awesome even on the low boosts. Tell JC for me he made enormous improvement, and I forgot to tell him that his control inputs were very smooth. Even when he started working the car fairly hard he was still very smooth, I was impressed.

Alex I want a ride in Princess JR.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I had them for years ryan, couldn't do anything consistent or fast. As soon as you start getting some speed in corners, you over cook the brakes. If you don't over cook the brakes, you're not getting decent speed in the corners.

Move on to the DTC-60s stat. I have never been more consistent and the brakes have never been more reliable until I moved to them.

Yeah, I'm thinking the HP+ would make great autox pads due to the cold bite. But they are not super track pads for PIR.

Lap time was 1:40.0. Martin ran a 1:38.4 I believe with me in the car.
Martin and Josh showed 3rd gear seems to be better for turns 1 and 7. Better entry speeds too. Lots to learn.

2 days down, 1 to go in turbo torture weekend. Ran a 1:56 dead in the 2nd session on the Hoosiers, in the afternoon I got faster as I learned the track with power but my only session with Hoosiers I had a passenger so I only managed a 1:56.8. For perspective John's 350whp aero'd out car was at a 1:55.4 and Brian Kelly's 270whp aero'd out car was at 1:55.1. Super pleased with a first outing to ORP. Also took the rs3s out for some fun and they have some stick, ran a couple of 1:58s late on the day when it was quite warm. Just made it home, time to catch some sleep before BMW club tomorrow and shoot for sub 1:26s if the weather cooperates.

Ryan I will take your car out if you want.

Great day at ORP today. Managed a 2.00.4 on the last day for my RR's, they are starting to cord. They have enough rubber for one last autocross. Need more camber.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I'm not keeping up with PDX group let's say that. Car feels great, could use more brake but I'm also probably 75% proficient with being hard enough on them. 300ft. Into turn 1 and 200ft. into turn 10. MCS are really really great. I could see higher spring rate in the front. Thanks for all the recommendations from on them. Also Das Boot Chumpcar failed to complete another track day. Losing boost revealed another cracked manifold and an over charging alternator. Uggghh.

I'm sure Eddie could do it. I'd drive it if it ends up being allowed.

What time did you do today?

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Spendies but I do like it. For that price I'd hope a front bumper re-spray is included. Photoshop and umbrella lighting sure does pretty up a car.

Give me another 100 wheel and big brakes and I'll shave another 2 seconds easy. I destroyed my fronts today. 1:26.000 3rd session in 90 degree weather on 18 heat cycle hoosiers.
Laz got new front calipers,pads and rotors for ORP.
