Tracking your 86 in Texas
 
I thought it would be nice to have a track thread for the locals to discuss events, share videos or whatever. Perhaps it could help facilitate doing events together, which is always more fun. Had fun meeting a few members at MSR Cresson this weekend with Drivers Edge.


I try to get out to the track once or twice a month and would love to meet more 86ers with similar interests.

I'm a noob driver. If anything I would go to spectate. The closest thing I get to tracking is parking lot donuts in rain/ice.

Some the Houston 86 Club usually track, but mainly me, @DaiTT500 , and @Kuri track around here. There's plenty of members that are starting to though.

Yup

I'm down to join in to this conversation. I've gone up to eagles canyon twice now, looking to do MSR this fall. Last time I went out to the track was a little over a year ago though.

What organizations do you guys typically run with? I mainly run with Drivers Edge, NASA and on member days at MSR-C.

DaiTT500 07-15-2015 12:27 PM

We also run with the driver edge when they come to Texas World and MSR Houston. I've been to a couple of NASA events, we run Chin Motorsports, couple of the members days at MSRH. I myself have ran with the porsche club and performance driving school for Texas World. @The Slow One and I are in the Yellow group for Drivers Edge. I tried to check ride into red group the last event but dumb ass me messed with the suspension on the car and spun out hard. May attempt another check ride next event.

Kuri 07-15-2015 12:38 PM

Yup. Driver's Edge and Chin Motorsports for me ^

Jonsey 07-15-2015 01:25 PM

Nice, I just moved up to red with Drivers Edge last weekend. I need to make it down to Houston for one of their events soon.

Ramster 07-15-2015 01:26 PM

Have you guys had any experience with Apex? I was thinking about maybe trying them out.

Jonsey 07-15-2015 01:47 PM

I have not. Have a buddy who ran one of their days at MSR-C and said it was pretty decent, although he did not feel like the run groups were as well sorted.

Kuri 07-15-2015 02:37 PM

Dang... I just got moved to Blue Solo last month :D

Just did my second Track Night in America at MSR-C, I'd recommend it for everyone.

That's frustrating.


What suspension are you running on your car? Other significant mods? Also, would love to see some MSR-H videos if you have some. would be nice to see the lines before I make it down there. I did TWS for the first time with NASA in April and am hoping to run it at least once more this year, probably with Drivers Edge.
