We have 16 BRZ and FRS combine going to Texas World Speedway with Chin Motorsports in November 14-15 as of 1:00am 8/25

http://www.chinmotorsports.com/Roste...2b4I%2bhJ84%3d

And some more 86 people are trickling in.

If you have Ran TWS before and have experience on that track, want to join us? PM me and I can get you a discount in our group. If you are new to Chin I am able to work a discount with the organizer to get you a $60 discount on your first event and I can talk to management to move you up in run groups so you don't have to start out in the novice run group.

For novice drivers who needs instructors, the novice list is full but you can be on the waiting list.

PM me for more details.

Here are the main things I noticed, but for a first time on track that was a great lap:


- Your entry into rattlesnake is not bad but I would come in a little tighter to the right side, also looks like you are braking early there
- You need to track out a bit more throughout wagon wheel - there is a little mark about 2/3 of the way out on the track where you should start the turn in for the second half of wagon wheel coming out on the straight
- Ricochet you turned in really late and did not track all the way out (this is probably where you lost the most time but this is a corner that takes practice and a lot of courage because it's scary). I do a very slow turn in here starting just after the rumble strips, track into the apex and then track all the way out to the rumble strips
- Your turn in to little bend was slightly early and you did not start from the outside, which is pretty common, but you could gain a little time modifying the line there
- Your line through horse shoe, boot hill and tombstone was actually pretty nice. There are a couple of tweaks that could be made but overall very nice there
- Your turn in to big bend looked good but you really pinched it off at the end, you need to open the wheel up and let it track all the way out. You will pick up a couple of extra mph down the straight that way.


Once again, overall a pretty nice lap and a great lap considering no instructor and first time out there.

Thanks! I really need to get out there with an instructor in the car.

I'm doing the TNiA on the 14th. It will be my first time in the 1.7, any driving tips? I've done the 1.3 before with the PCA when I had my WRX.

What camera mounts are yall using that bolt on to the passenger seat? I like Tha camera angle. I have a Go Pro.

Ahh man... I was at work... I'm going to stop by there on Saturday to check out the H2R Race, and I'll be out there on Sunday afternoon, after C&C & lunch... I think I'll be out there after about 2 or 3, until they kick me out..

I did the SCCA Track Night in America yesterday at MSR 1.7CCW.

My first time on track with this car and first time on the 1.7 (only been on the 1.3).

It was super fun! I did a 1:31.7 in my CS prepped BRZ with just 225/45 star specs and a Perrin 19mm front sway bar and stoptech street pads.

I know I could have been at least a second faster but didn't want to push too hard for my first time. I wanted to focus on my lines. With that said, driving tips are appreciated!

If you have no money, you should just do autocross. A lot cheaper than actual tracking.

Probably true...


If you can scrape together about $300 and some change, check if GroupOn still has that 2 month membership at Harris Hill Raceway in San Marcos. I did that deal & unfortunately my 2 month trial membership officially ends in 30 minutes, but I got a lot of track time in. So very worth it...

SCCA Track Nights are like $150 an event. Usually at MSR Cresson.

SCCA Autocross is $50 an event. Next event you can join would be November 1st at Lone Star Park. October 25th is another event but you need to have done 3 autocross events before to join since it's on the infield track at Texas Motor Speedway.

Equipe Rapide is $40 an event. Next event is October 11th in Mineral Wells.
