I’ve only got my BRZ, I drive it to events and drive it home. I can fit a full set of tires, tools, and anything else I need in the back when I fold down the seats. Read more

After I started tracking, I found out what the requirements for instructing were, and once I had the skills and seat time I felt I needed to know what I was doing I already knew who to contact and what to do to start instructing. Read more

DC has a greater population then Vermont and Wyoming and about the same population as Alaska and North Dakota (this is just DC proper and doesn’t include suburbs that are outside of the city proper).

Hmm, Hallett is pretty tight and technical, so a tighter course with such close counter traffic is a bit worrying. There are a number of design and engineering considerations that need to be taken into account when building a track. If the track doesn’t meet safety requirements, groups like the SCCA won’t run there. Read more

Cool, I still haven’t managed to make it up to Hallett (there’s always a schedule conflict). I’ll be at the track the next couple weekends, making up for lost time.

Comments already say just about everything I’d add, except: phone gps is usually only 1Hz which is okay for laptimes but not great and won’t give you accurate information about other things and is only marginally useful for data analysis. You should probably look into a gps unit, they are either 5Hz or 10Hz (10Hz is Read more

There are two main concerns with a track alignment: 1) adding negative camber to better accommodate cornering forces and reduce tire shoulder wear and 2) adding some toe out to increase turn in or for faster cars on faster tracks adding some rear toe in to help with high speed stability. Read more

I got my BRZ new for just under $25k in 2014, and if I had $25k to spend on a sportscar, that’s what I’d get. Read more

Moral reasoning sounds like an oxymoron. Reason is devoid of feelings and morality would only apply to the possible logical outcomes of issues; whereas, morality is a means to justify or judge actions, beliefs, and ideals. True reasoning is an amoral process. Read more

Nearly all the corners at ECR are late apex corners, I’ve only ever had one student who didn’t turn in early.

Definitely, it gives the student a huge head-start on learning the line. But really, learning the line isn’t quite as important as learning the fundamental car control skills needed for safety and speed. If you learn how you’re supposed to drive, driving the line almost becomes the natural result.

Nice, I got to go to the track today, first time in a few weeks (I was starting to go into withdrawals).

Go get a 2015 FRS/BRZ, only downside vs an S2k is that it’s not a convertible (I’m not a convertible person because I’m bald). The NC Miata is also a great deal, both are as fun as an S2k, much newer, and same price or cheaper. The S2k is a little faster, but that’s what mods are for.
