I'd love to live near Road America, that is by far my favorite road course, especially the back half and Canada corner.
Turns 6 through 14 have always been fun with the Kink being my favorite. Lately though I am intrigued by turn 1. I think there is more time to be gained or lost there than anywhere else on track.

So, the Mule is down for maintenance.... transmission out for clutch and TO bearing. As a result, the back-up car will be there on Wednesday..... my half-a-decade project of a FFR Cobra replica. Not set up for HPDE, but will be on-track during the lunch break hopefully giving a good ride for charity.Siebkens Full Color.jpg

The day ended sooner than I would have liked. Ended up cracking one of my rotors in three spots. Lucky for me it happened on my best run of the day. Personal best and just short of my goal by 3 tenths.

Notice all the cracks around the holes and right through one of the slots? All that stuff just creates weak areas in the rotor.
Which is why I run blanks. Ford OEM PP blanks and nothing else. Never have had a problem with one of them. Just sayin'.
I did try Bremsen blanks, they were fine as well but more expensive than Ford for no gain.
