__First track day in my FR-S__

Went to Putnam Park Raceway this past Saturday. First time pushing the car on the new setup. Was so fun pulling higher HP cars and getting on their butts in corners. Car took everything I could throw at it, ran a best lap of 1:26. Here's some vids...

Fastest lap...

Had a little 'off' lol...

Mustang hunting...

Chasing an ACR Viper...

Then I had some fun with a friend that went with us, his first track day and he got pretty good towards the end. He kept wanting me to pass but I wanted to get some vid so he could check out his lines...







Here's some pics my wife took with her phone, sorry about the quality...





lol

Wow, absolutely beautiful lines. Great job man. I love to see you keeping up with the Viper and S2K on corners. Let them pull away from you in the straights, you'll catch up in the corners. The only criticism is to get on the throttle earlier in the exit of the turns. Push your car to the edge of the road during exits to get the highest speeds possible. But other than that, you are driving like a pro. I can't wait to see you get some performance increases for the straights. You'll be kicking ass soon.

Thanks! That was only my second time on a track. The S2k was a friend that went with me, his first time on the track. I had no problem passing him (did it plenty times that day), just followed him for a while for fun.

I'm actually planning on running the 10/10ths track day on Oct 13th up at Putnam. It'd be awesome to see you out there for it! Nice driving.

I'll be in my MR2, btw.

Very cool, man! I'll probably take the FR-S out there next summer.

BTW, were you on stock brake pads and discs? If so, how did they do? It doesn't look like a particularly hard braking course...

awesome videos! loved watching you run down that viper (that is my dream car). that app you found is pretty neat as well.

looks like you are getting good seat time. the 2 tracks i have around me that i'm trying to get to are Virginia International Raceway and Carolina Motorsports Park. Both offer beginner classes with four 30 minute on track driving sessions with classroom instruction in between.

I'd love to but don't think I could pull it off, going on vacation in Oct. and need some cash for that. Have fun out there!

Stock pads, braided brake lines and ATE super blue fluid. Probly could have used a bleed towards the end but held up good.

That's the Harry's Lap Timer Pro app on my iphone, works awesome! Here's some data from the lap timer, this is my fastest lap. I can look at every lap of the day like this and also on a spreadsheet.

Hey how much did you pay for a track day like that? In south Florida it's mostly with a company that rents the track down in homestead FL.

But but but this car is soooo slow. It takes over 6 seconds to go from 0-60 mph!

/sarcasm

No roll bar in that s2000? Did not think there were any tracks that did not require them in non fixed top cars. Surely they do not consider those factory style bars as real rollover protection?

This is honestly my favorite FRS that I've seen. A 1:26 isn't too shabby either. I was supposed to come down in the Miata or the S2000 for that 10/10ths event, but can't make it. There should be a white s2000 out there with a big wing and a carbon top, or a nice blue miata with a blue soft top out there - try and keep up with him for me

Same kinda deal hear, Torqued Motorsports was the group that put this on. I think I paid $230. Well worth it with all the classes and plenty of track time!

Yea we were concerned about that, the track site said no convertibles unless they pass the broomstick test. My friend emailed and asked if 'stock' S2000's were allowed and they said something along the lines of 'new convertibles are stronger, that rule was meant for older convertibles'. I dunno, we didn't argue lol.

Yea Gopro and iPhone with basic suction cup mounts. The phone was on my windshield under the rearview.

Thanks, I was more than happy with how the car did out there. It held in the corners so good. I was real sore the next day, thought I had the flu cause my whole body ached lol. I saw the S2000 you were talking about, looked good! Only saw him run a couple times, super quiet car!

A seat and some harness would really help on track, but would be somewhat of a pain to DD in. Look into a product called the CG Lock - it locks the waist belt of the stock seatbelt to help hold you in place. Makes a big difference.

And the white s2000 is pretty basic. Its got Ohlins suspension, a test pipe, camber joints up front, and that big wing and good tires. Same recipe I'd likely use for an FRS/BRZ to be honest.

That car took 2nd at NASA Nationals last year at Mid-Ohio. The owner/drivers name is Aaron and he specialize in suspension and chassis set up. He's down in Louisville. If you're interested in contacting him to see what he can do for you and helping you set the car up, shoot me a message.

The guy is an absolute wizard. I had been having handling issues in my TT S2000 all season. I talked to him for 5 minutes and he knew exactly what the issue was and how to fix it! He's a great guy too. If you see him on the 13th, stop by and chat. Tell him Austin with the red TT s2000 told you to say hey. I'm sure he'll want to check your car out.

A seat and harnesses would be awesome but the car is my daily, so doubt I'll do it.

That S2000 (and owner) sound awesome! My friend talked to him for a sec I think. I shoulda checked out the car more. I used to have an S2k myself...
