+1, I didn't, and I can't see a stock e30 making it over 190
The problem isn't topping out, it's having the power to get up the hill on the back straight. I hit 170 and I'm at turn 8.

Stock everything is fine, it's a driving school to learn how to properly drive on a track not find the limits of your car.

With stock brakes though the fluid and pads would probably be smokin tthough by the end of a lap... Other than that ied say everything else stock would be acceptable

Just to add to this: you also have different exercises on the skid pad which will allows you to see how your car behaves in different situations. This can allow you to see "the limit" in certain situations.

Here a video of a student in a awd 911 attempting to do exercises:

There is also classroom instruction (which really separates this from regular track days) and a track walk with Derek Hanson at the end of the first day.

Your car will not be taxing the brakes at Mosport, there is only one hard braking area. Just change your fluid prior to the event. Your pads should comfortably last the weekend.

Read what I said: end of the Day, track walk, no traffic just Stuart attempting to show the line. If you have been to Mosport, you would know that the NSX is going the wrong way SO HOW COULD THERE BE TRAFFIC?

Picture of track walk taken out from so there is no confusion for people who have never been to Mosport. The walk itself is a great asset to the school as it allows you to see the elevation changes and get a better gauge for just how and why the line works.

I never meant any harm by the comment. Sorry if you took it that way. Obviously people wouldn't be allowed to stand on the track if there was any inherent safety concerns. I went to Mosport once a couple years ago to watch some of one the Trillium driving schools, there was great emphasis on safety, I know the instructors wouldn't do anything as reckless as standing on the track when cars are going by at speed regardless of the direction the car is travelling.

Yes, they were excellent when I mashed it out there. and I'm running stock everything. I didn't feel one bit of fade. Partly because there's only 1 major braking zone at the end of the back straight. Also keep in mind you do about 10 laps, come back in, and go out a couple hours later so that helps keep them cool too versus having a full non-stop lapping day.

If that's due to gearing than - add another 100hp and put proper racing slicks on it and you should be able to top it out Of course now we talking about a completely different car.

I've hit 230ish in my car, with the stock motor ages ago. Mind you, that was on the highway, going downhill and crap haha. At Mosport I'd be lucky to touch 200km/h. I always short shift into 5th anyways, as there is no need to race anyone up the straight... I know my car is slow
