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.


I have the ohlins road and track coilovers. The last time i was out on track I had just installed the driveway labs 5" splitter and man did it create down force! I had no wing to even it out and so at the end of a big carousel turn the rear end would just come around. Well on my check ride I wanted to create a plowing affect so i wouldn't over steer and so it made it even worse when I loosen the rear dampers up. On my check ride with the instructor, I spun out at around 80mph and one of my intake hoses popped off. I had to go in for the session and miss the rest of my check ride.

I have a Jackson Racing Supercharger, AP racing sprint kit and now a voltex rear wing as notable mods.

I've been in yellow for a while and most of the time I am one of the top 3 fastest in the group. While I had a lot of fun for the longest time I have been in yellow, I want to get into Red so I can push myself even more to go faster and run with faster pace people.

This is the only recent video I had that was really fun chasing a Racecar ZR1 Corvette. That car was pure fast horsepower monster but I held onto braking the very last second to gain on him into each corner. This day was pretty fun.

Hahaha, nice video. I know that car as well. He would simply crush me on the straights but took him quite a while to really get away. This was the last weekend on that set of tires and they really liked to tell you about it.

He's a really nice guy. I enjoy running with him. We would trade back and forth passes a lot that weekend. What tires are you on? Whats your car setup?

Jonsey 07-15-2015 10:09 PM

Stock motor, 235/40/17 Direzza ZII Star Specs (was on 225/45/17 Potenza RE11As in the video). Koni yellow shocks, swift spec r springs, raceseng camber plates, SPL rear lower control arms and toe links, Carbotech xp10 pads, FT86 Speed Factory front splitter (w/race upgrades) and Driveway Labs Type 1 rear diffuser (switching out for FT86 Speed Factory rear diffuser), few bushings in the rear and some other small stuff.


I never got to actually meet him, but I feel like most of the people at the Drivers Edge events are really nice. I have made some good friends.

Dang, looks like I need to just keep at it on my Dunlop Z2s, haha

Here is my current best lap at MSR on the 1.7CCW, which I was really surprised by the time. I have been really impressed with the ZIIs so far but will likely move up to 245 Rivals S or Potenza RE71Rs next. Although it is tough not to consider R comps now.

Very impressive time for being on street tires.

Wait, was that a 1:25.8? Did I read that right? Nice work. We're still trying to break into the 26s, but we're about to throw on some new coilovers that should get us there.

Hey, you track people. We're thinking about hosting a meet at the shop, I'd love to have as many of you track people there as possible. User Shneegle is coordinating it, I think he's the guy that does the state-wide drives and whatnot.

Hey guys, just trying to get in on the conversation. I tracked my FRS for the 1st time at Harris Hill last Friday. Last time I was on a track was about 12 years ago in my 1st Miata (at MSR Cresson), so last Friday was more of a re-learning session.


The staff at Harris Hill mentioned that there's a couple of FRS/BRZ guys that come out regularly, wondering if they are on here?

I've been out for 3 HPDEs out at Harris Hill, always had a great time. That probably doesn't qualify me as a regular, but I try to get out there wherever I can.

I'm out there 3-4 times per month, usually during the week due to my schedule, may get out there this weekend though if everything works out...

Hey Tim, I met you out at a few C&C events in San Antonio last year.


Guys, let me know when you head over there, I'd love to do a follow behind and see what line you guys take & pick your brain, or do a ride along. I have a work event on Saturday, but I'm thinking I may head out there sometime Sunday for a few laps. I live like 2 exits down from the track & if I can get out of work commitments early enough I possibly could make it out there during the week, later afternoon.

Jonsey 07-22-2015 11:35 AM

How is Harris Hill? I have not heard much about.
