Looking for some friends
I’ll be back there on august 3rd. That’s with mvp track time. If you register let me know!Give me some more advance notice for a monday at autobahn and I will be there. I have a bunch of PTO to burn and finally have childcare sorted out. Just got my pads in for the mazda3 so she is good to go.
Hoooly shit. What kind of lap times? Is this in the charger in your avatar?My day was cut short. Crushed my brake pads in just three sessions. Was down to the rotor driving home. I need to invest in separate rotors and pads just for the track.
It's crazy to me because my pads on the bike last 5-6 track days. Yeah my bike is small, but so are the pads, and I'm slowing from speeds much faster than what mid-level production cars can achieve. I also only use the frontsBrake pads outside of their heat zone just crumble. I destroyed a set in 2 days at blackhawk because I had no cooling ducts.
Have to remember your brakes are getting airflow all the time. Without brake ducts most cars don't habe enough cooling airflow unless they are lightweight.It's crazy to me because my pads on the bike last 5-6 track days.

That sucks. Further reinforces that, when I get a fun car like a zl1, I'm not tracking it more than once a year lol
