Last track day of the year in a week, and I still don't have brake parts ready to install.

I did my first track day of the year in a R32 Skyline GT-R. It turns out that counter steering through every turn is not the fastest way around the track; although, it's definitely the funnest.

your GT-R or someone elses?

Koopa Troopa 10-10-2016 05:17 PM

A friend's.

but FWD countersteer is better! haha

Koopa Troopa 10-11-2016 02:18 AM

Nah. GT-R countersteer is better. Cause of the way the AWD system functions, the car drives like a very oversteery FWD once power starts going to the front. That thing will be loads of fun once he puts his OS Giken 1 way in the front (has a Kaaz 2 way in the back right now but he's thinking of switching to a OS Giken 1.5 to match the OS Giken front diff).

Bath Tussue 10-11-2016 03:13 PM

Damn weather warning. Seems like a storm is approaching. Bald front RE11 for a wet track day!

My attempt to run 2" brake ducts. Not the best routing but better than nothing. Ran the passenger side next to the crank pulley behind the fender liner and strapped the rest on the control arm. Driver side I had to route it around around the CAI and behind the fender liner and then strapped the rest to the control arm. It's pretty much aimed at the ball joint but hopefully enough fresh air hits the rotor behind it.

but you have crappy gas and naziesque carb and emissions control crap to deal with!

(just trying to make myself feel better, cries in spanish)


edit:
for the record I also hate you for the canyon roads you guys have. Big Tahunga is awesome!

Koopa Troopa 10-15-2016 12:48 AM

I've since given up on buying RE71Rs. Makes no sense to spend money on them when they're no longer competitive tires here due to the Japanese gymkhana tire arms race going on recently.

Tire Rack has a special on RS3s right now, so I think RS3s are gonna be ordered. Think I'll do 245/40/17 in the front and 225/45/17 in the rear.

Did you have to pull the fenders at all to fit 255s under there? I'm wanting to go with the 245s cause I don't know how the 255s will fit and I don't really want to mount 255s on a 8.5" wheel. Also I'd like to keep my fender liners and fenders as they are.

I just said lol @ grip city in the context of RS3s. 71Rs would be better for you, but for me, it appears there's no point in spending the extra $20 something per tire. Less grip might actually be better in the long run anyways. Grip plus clutch pack LSDs combined with tight turns can often mean instant death for CV joints in FWDs.

Slicks in a street tire carcass marketed as a street radial when the only thing put on the sidewall is the make and model, size, and "For Gymkhana."

Why not get those?

Cause everyone who buys them is replacing them by the third event. I don't buy things unless I can get a year out of them. All I want is a year. No more, no less, but if I can get more than a year out of something then that's a bonus.

Bath Tussue 10-16-2016 11:35 PM

Damn it was horrible in the rain today. I was understeering every turn. Average about 25 seconds slower than my dry times of average 1:21.
But the awesome part was that there were so much seat time.

Koopa Troopa 10-17-2016 12:04 AM

Is it possible to fit 245/40/17 on the back without rolling the quarter panels? Right now I have -1.5 of rear camber and they'll be mounted on a 17x8.5 +50. I'd prefer to not roll fenders and quarter panels if it's not necessary. Prolly gonna buy 245/40/17 for the front. Was gonna put 225/45/17 on the rear, but I'd prefer to run a square set up for the street so I can rotate tires to extend their life. I've still got those 17x7.5 RPF1s, so I think I'll just mount some cheap 215/45/17s on those to use in the back for gymkhana events.

warmmilk 10-17-2016 11:41 AM

On an 8.5 +50 you've got more to worry about rubbing on the inside. I was running 235's on a 9 +35 and had some witness marks on the inside. No issue on the fender though, iirc was running -1.7 camber

Bath Tussue 10-17-2016 02:34 PM

He has Type-R. Naturally more offset to begin with.
