Trekkor I love the way your car sits so low.

Anything special done to the suspension?

Lowered front end with bump steer kit.
200# rear springs on adjustable perches.

The Sweeper Damô makes it look even lower. Woo hoo!!

So if you happen to whack a cone does it go around or still get caught up in the middle under the car.

When I decide to nail a cone instead of DNFing the cone is a real pain to get out. and usually mangled to ****.

They only get hung up if I hit them square on.

Otherwise, they go flying.

Trekkor, I think you need to mount a splitter to the air dam, a -sharp- one. That way, you can just slice the cones off at the base, and leave the base still in the box. No penalty! :-)

Oh man you would get one run before ya got sent packing.


NEW SUBJECT:
Hey how many laps is the norm for a open track lapping day. I mean per stint or what ever you call it?

What to expect from the car. I imagine one lap to warm up and figure out where I'm going.
and a lap to cool off (is that needed for 914's)?
How many in the middle?

Depends mostly on who runs the event. The local (Zone 7) PCA crowd runs 20-minute run groups for their Time Trials, and 15-minute groups for their DEs. Checkered Flag (the outfit My Attorney runs with) give you half-hour sessions.

Joe, it all depends on the club, the track, the car, and the driver.

If it's "no problem" you're going to, it's a small track, so I would expect low lap times. Most clubs will hold 20 minute sessions (That's roughly how long your average club race lasts). 20 miutes is a LONG time. You will be exhausted, your tires will be cookin', and hopefully your engine won't be too hot. Watch those temps! If the car (or driver) gets too hot, pull off. Discretion is definitely the better part of valor.

And chances are, that there will be more than one session. But it really depends on the club, and the format. What event is it? PCA, SCCA, NASA?

Did you bleed or flush your brakes recently? If not, DO IT! Put in good, high temp fluid. Drivers that are new to the track will invariably push their brakes harder untill they get comfortable with the higher entry speeds. Autox abuses tires more than anything else. Track events punnish brakes. If you can, try and rig up some brake cooling ducts if you don't already have them. You can even use dryer hose from Home Depot and some zip ties to hold 'em in place. A little ducting goes a long way at the track...

Go have a blast and a half!!

Tekkor, are your rear fenders flared a bit? I've never noticed before, but they look like it. Did you just pull them?

Yes.

I used a hydraulic "Porta-Power" spreader and some lumber to force the fenders out to my liking.
The wood was cut to contour the outer fender well and a 4x4 was up against the inner.

I'm still on 205's, but the fenders were pulled for 225's on 7's.

I'm at a spot where I need to buy tires again.

I may get a pair of 225 Yok A048r's to go along with the two hour old free pair.
