Great track event guys.

My tires took a beating but I'm just glad I didn't break anything!

Next time we should have someone stand at the side and time our laps :) Towards the end I started to learn the lines better and when the straights came I hit a higher top speed each time. I also scrubbed off less speed by reduced tire squeeling and braking. When I first got there I could only get 3 laps max in at a time before I had to cool down the brakes/tires. But towards the end I got a good 5-6 laps in with no sign of brake fade or tires overheating.

Kevin, you're hardcore! You smoked your tires and brakes to oblivion but still kept going!

Thanks to E36_M_Power for organizing the event and keeping things relatively safe.

The only thing I hated was the long ass boring drive back home :(

Anyways, hope to see you guys at another track event in the future.

great turn out. I smoked most of cars on the track with wrx. I was very impressed. after about 10~15 laps of intensive driving, ppl were telling me, the flames were comming out of the exhaust when I was downshifting. kekekek. when I pulled in, all tires were melted, and smoke comming out of the rotor. kekekekek.
well, I'm just suprised at what tuned wrx can do on the track.

First off thanks to E36_M_Power for organizing a Fun, safe event. The day went really well. I was worried that it would rain, but it held off for most of the day.
There wasn't too many cars, which was good cause we didn't have to wait to get on the track. There were just enuff.
This was my first time tracking my M3...hell this was the 1st time I've ever been on the track...And man o man it was an adrenalin(sp) rush. I never realized the capabilities my car has on the track. Its true what they say, Street racing is nothing compaired to driving on a circuit. You must pit in cause your brakes, and tires take a beating.

AutoTech: You had me worried on the way there. That traffic was crazy. You should install that e. fan you lazy bastard:D

Soldo: You crazy mofo. How many laps did you do on the last run?
You must done 6-7 laps straight. Your car is pretty quick. I caught some of your fish tale on camera; Pure smoke was coming from your tires:D
By the way I wasn't gonna run you & your buddy over. The look on you & your budd's face was priceless thou:eek: :eek: :eek:

Mpower1226: That was you w/ the wrx Sti? THe blue one right? I never knew you were a maxbimmer member*wave*
You were gunning it too!!! I saw when you back fired a couple of times...and yes flames did come out of your exhaust. Your BOV sounds insane*mw* *mw* *mw*

Stikigreenz: You shoulda been of the track more. It seemed like you were hardly on. You better have good footage on that camera

Q: What car do you think had the best lap time?

Q: On the straight away, how fast did you get up to?

Autotechnica
05-01-2004, 04:03 PM
Al, I think obviously the black civic HB had the best time. I'm not sure though, that Type-R was keeping up to him pretty quick. The black Jetta probably took 2nd palce.

The first few laps in the beginning I hit 140 because I was really slow comming out of the last turn before the straight. Towards the end of the event I took the last corner a lot quicker (man so much body roll) and I managed to get 160-170 but I almost lost it at the 1st turn. The guy at the pit was waving that yellow flag faster and faster.. haha. He didn't want me to get owned like Kevin did by that Civic.. LOL joking Kev. Anyways, I averaged 80-90 in the corners. I shifter way too early because I got scared after seeing what happened to that 328. Kept the revs under 6K. Rain makes everything more interesting though. It also helped to keep the tires much cooler which is something I liked. It's quite hard to slide on that track for some reason.

I wanted to catch up to you guys the whole time. I had Kevin on my ass for a while, but I had to let him pass in the straights. I honestly wish there were laps timers. Then we could safely compete without risking crashing into each other. Next time, someone bring a stop watch and time us from the pits!

Dave, I didn't know that was you in the WRX! You're a good driver. I would have let you drive my car too and show me the lines. However, I think my e-brake was loose. I don't know whether or not you heard it, but it was making a REALLY loud rattling noise everytime I cornered hard. You could hear it from the pit. Yeah that was my car! I was paranoid about tire wear too. When you came over I had just finished 6 continous laps. Brakes held up quite good, and tires never showed signs of overheating. They just got stickier :)

I'm happy because I managed to lapp the 330ci, the guy had no clue of the line. I mastered a few of the corners, but I had crazy body roll in a lot of them which means I still didn't know the line. I really need to take some driving lessons.

Anyways, did anyone find out what happened to the 328is? I think he blew his valvetrain from overevving. Whenever he started his car you could hear grinding noises from his engine. Hope the guy made it home.

Now, where are those pics and vidz? :)

Sounds like fun guys, I don't understand why you guys are melting your tires and making your brakes smoke though.....

I still think I'm going to do a few more schools before hitting up a lapping day. At least if I mess up at a school insurance is there to back me up, the same can't be said at a lapping day, especially if it's timed.

HEHEHEHE!
What a DAY, what a DAY!

It was awesome needless to say, i had tons of fun, and that bastard in the civic intimidated the hell outta me, he just kept making me push my car harder and harder, until i did a little offroading in my car, and almost got run down by ALVIN, hehehe, kidding!

The last time i went on the lap, i did probably around 10-15 laps straight without stopping, i just got in a GOOD groove of things after the black hatch schooled me and then took me for a spin to teach me the same lines he was taking. AWESOME guy, ran me off the course but he was really cool about it!

JON: I do have a bit more track experience than that, and i was douing those things after i got use to the way my car was acting on certain turns, that first SHARP turn i drifted so many times, they should just name that turn after me, hehehe, i WISH!

Mpower1226: Damn man, i didn't even see you there, my buddy told me you were in a silver jetta, which was a rental, hahahaha!

Anyways, the ride home was pretty boring, bryan was the only reason i got home as quick as i did, except for when he was fallin asleep at the wheel i think, THATS why i came with so many people in my car, i NEED company on the way home! We gotta do it again guys, no doubt about it, just gotta figure out whats up with my car now (its shaking a little, after my off-roading incident) but nothing TOO bad, and i gotta remember to maintain my tire pressure, don't wanna hit 57 PSI again! HEHE!

I got a FEW pics i'm gonna try to develop, but i NEED to see those vids, alvin, hurry up!

EDIT: Guys, nelson, its not THAT bad man, it was pretty safe there, all honesty, i was probably one of the only dumbasses people had to watch out for (and that guy in the 330 had a constant tendency to off-road also) but there were some really pricey cars there, like new CLK benz, Z4, TT, and they weren't really pushing it, asides the CIVIC HATCH, no one had to worry about people flying by you in the turns and what not!

yeah, I was in Jetta 5spd rental, after 10laps of intensive driving, the brake faded. so I switched to 2 WRXs. one stock, one tuned up. Their owners were afraid to push the car, it was thier first time. So I took the key, used them for the rest of seassion. The blue one was more fun, so I was driving Blue wrx most of times.
Wonder why I couldnt run into you on the track, soldo. It seemed like everytime I pull into the pit, you were going out.

when you went off the track, did you hit the apex? anyway, you should look into the control arms and bal joints. They usually go bad when you go off.

SHITTT!
I just replaced these!
haha, ah well, well worth it, ya i took the apex, but i was going too fast, and when i entered that corner, when i began to brake, there was too much brake fade, and my brakes were useless to slow me down in time, so instead of TRYING to make the turn, i just decided to know my role and run off the course!

The car is a bit shaky just at idle, so i'm gonna try to see if its my spark plugs thats causing that, and i think i need an alignment also!

Which WRX were you mostly in, cause i remember, the WRX's that i saw were NOT TOO GOOD, but then towards the end, they started to improve, guess that was when YOU were behind the wheel, the black WRX qwas sexy as hell, so whats goin on with the pics, anyone got any yet??

That guy knows the course better than the back of his hand, when he took me for a rip in his car, and showed me what lines i was doing incorrectly, he was doing the entire course with a SMOKE in one of his hands, and he'd ash out right before flying into the turn at full throttle!

GOD WHAT A RUSH!

i'm VERY jealous of you guys... I've been wanting to go to Shannonville for a while now... (though my car isn't ready yet--stock suspension.. umm.. no thanks.).. I would've liked to have checked it out at least.

videos look good guys... some sharp turns too! ...

Soldo, sounds like your ball joints which went... does your steering wheel feel "loose" and the car likes to drift a little at times?

Soldo
05-10-2004, 10:45 PM
i HOPE its not the balljoints, i just replaced them, hahaha, DAMN!

NO, its just that the car shakes at idle, i doubt thats the balljoints that are causing that, my steering has been loose even after i replaced my balljoints, so i think thats a whole other problem all together, and the car drifts at times, but thats due to the way i've adjusted my coilovers!

You should come man, even with a stock setup, its not like were runnin for time, its just pretty much to get to know your car.......... VERY WELL!

So many cameras at the track, yet so lil videos on the board!!

1BADBMR - I can't find the digital wire to go from the camera to the computer to transfer the vids. Where do the damn smiley icons in this forum come from? I don't see any icons. IF someone can convert a Digital8 tape, cause they have a wire, i'll lend'em the tape, or if i find the wire, which i doubt. It's worth it, theres about 25 minuets of footage, most of it that camera hogging ///M3.

And I would have run more laps, I think I only ran 7-8 laps that whole day, was kind of afraid of pushing the car too hard.

Justin e36
05-11-2004, 08:00 PM
Ah okay.. if the idle is unstable it's probably fuel/air ratio.. (ICV? ... air leak?) ... and shaky steering could be your upper ball joints... parts of your steering rack, etc.

I just replaced my ball joints around 2 months ago.. they're bad again! :(

I wouldn't push my car till I get suspension tho.. my 92 stock suspension is just about dead already. But I'll be getting it soon.. just waiting on a price quote from Bryan. :)

Ya, see, i think it part of my steering rack, but in regards to the idle.... could an incorrect mixture occur because of the car taking a hard hit?!

all he needs is a firwire cable that has the larger size on one end (for the pc) and the smaller size on the other end for the cam, i have the cord, was 10-15$ at Future Shop. really good quality too, it's what i use to get footage off my cam that i post here.
