    I’m truly hoping the ECF becomes available next year in Canada. Freight fees from the land of the Bald Eagle send the price up quite a bit. (see full post)

    I know the question was for Bill and I’m sure he’ll weigh in, but wanted to throw my 2 cents in.Highly recommend the new Continental ExtremeContact Force. It comes in a 295/30-18 size. These will last longer than the Goodyear’s and the pace is...

    Such a cool thread Dads, and having started with my son when he was 12 ( he could ride along in an autocross ) and he was ripping through cones at 15, it not only teaches them great car control skills, there is no better time to spend with your...

    Regarding brake fluid - I ran ATE SuperBlue in my CMC car for approximately ~8+ years. This was on a ~3175lb car (with driver, as it came off track, so heavier at the start of a race), initially using SN95 Cobra brakes (first 12" rotors w/2p...

    So, I started by running the stock pads and 2 piston rotors, and while that may take someone through a school event or a lazy track day, I killed them in a day, as I completely expected.I run a set of 275 wide Conti ExtremeContact Sport tires -... (see full post)

    My concern over the years is telling folks to just use a fairly good pad when I have no idea what tracks they will run, what their level of experience or aggression is, or how much cooling the system will get from either a stock ducting or a bit...

    Is it dancing around under heavy braking? Or more trying to rotate one way?Toe/alignment can cause you to dance around under heavy braking, IME.

    I watched some video and realized that the instability I was experiencing was being induced by my hands. Putting more focus on getting the wheel straight during initial braking and then controlling the trail braking more intentionally made a huge... (see full post)

    It’s not on track, but it was shortly before this shot. Got to get my son in the left seat and put in his first laps learning how to have fun and stay safe on track. (see full post)

    Someplace on here I posted the old rules package for PWC, it was pure gold, I tried to find it on line recently and whoever runs PWC these days has removed, sad, because it was S197 suspension 101. If anyone downloaded it, please post it back up.

    Cornerz replied to the thread Brake dust, track pads!.
    I forgot to get the wheels washed after a recent track day running DTC-60 pads. After it rained, my fronts were completely out of balance! I ended up using a 4 to 1 solution of water to muriatic acid to clean them off. There were flakes of... (see full post)
