ah, so you are staff! Thanks for all the work you do! I was in the classroom this past Monday, always very informative.

im pretty sure with new tires you will have the top spot at abc full and 15's at bhf, its just a matter of time.
LOL it's fair. Gotta play by the rules. Truth be told, I'd do the same thing if the situation were reversed lol All in good fun tho.

Fingers crossed my control arm shims arrive by Friday. Level'd the lift last night (as close as I can get it) and I was able to get relatively accurate measurements on the existing camber and toe settings.

Next up is to take it all apart, make changes, put it back together. Gonna add ~.5^ all the way around. Should put me right at 3 up front and 2.5 out back.

Conservative compared to the notes I have from when I got my car back the first time - they attempted to set it at 3.5/3.2. I'm not going to go that wild at first.

Now the question is: are you gonna beat your own laps with your shiny new Cayman?

I'll tell you - if I find a decent shape set of used R7's... knowing what I know now about correct pressures, and adding in more camberzz I'm gunning for legit 15s at BHF....

Only ever driven slow cars (12a and a 13b powered rx7) at road america so your video shows why faster cars like it there for sure.
it's part of midwest 86 cup this year so i'll be heading up, but have been there only once, an eternity ago with an sti. looks like at least 3 areas for me to just sleep in with the brz! part of the reason i haven't gone is long straights and figuring it's harder on tires/brakes cuz the speeds, then again, maybe it's a lot easier on brakes anyway than somewhere like blackhawk.

I think that gauge layout is a "standard" one. I definitely see that layout everywhere.

You can for sure customize it, but since it wasn't my camera, I didn't mess with it... just plugged it in.

Caymans seem to like as much camber as you can give them. Most full track prepped cars are 3.5-4.0 degrees up front.

I've got all the right stuff to get the geometry - but I don't do more than 2-3 track events a year usually. Most of my time spent with my car is commuting (ugh - but with a wife and kid this is generally the time I'm afforded to use it) and autocross (love AX.) So I had Olsen go conservative on the alignment figuring a little bit of compromise would be fine. I'm just over 2 degrees in the front, and right at or under 2 degrees in the rear. Olsen forgot to give me the setup sheet so I'm speculating based on a semi-level lift in my garage and a Longacre camber gauge but even eyeballing the car - I don't have crazy camber. Based on how the car handles (understeers steady-state) I know for sure I need more. The tire wear confirms it.

My actual plans are to level out my lift this weekend, re-check camber, measure the current F/R toe, then add in 5mm shims all the way around (10mm = 1 degree, roughly), and reset the toe.

The Cayman is a great car out of the box - and does OK on the track. Definitely more than enough for, I'd say, up through an intermediate driver. Once you get faster though, you start running into issues. The car can/will go faster (and do it just fine) but you'll start tearing up tires, burning up brakes, etc. Depending on which generation Cayman, you'll want to look into some preventative measures to keep from oil starvation, oil/water temps, etc.



Beats me. The AiM SoloDL is mine. I borrowed the SmartyCam from a friend because I am tired of messing around with GoPro cameras and RaceRender, and didn't feel like dropping $1000 for a camera that won't get much use. It all works fine but it takes time.... the SmartyCam, it's all done right there in the camera. So I don't have any power over how it draws the track map. His camera was set to 720p so maybe that has something to do with it?

if i got rid of the brz i'd be taking a hard look at used caymans and a new pupra
