#20, "(hey, it's a long trip)"

Not to mention the Tinfoil-hat Viking Delivery Service™ you're using.

#20, Don't mod abuse me for this, but what about spending the money to make you faster? You know, keep it stock for now but mod yourself, if you know what I'm talking about?

#23, Advanced driving/racing school, silly.
And these automatically make you faster, too:

#22, I'm building a second car so I can go to driving events and schools without worrying that I'm going to break something on a car I need to get me to work the next day. I have no worries about being able to control this power level (I've tracked the V6, and it's never tried to get out from under me) but I need to learn to use it effectively.

#26, Son of a bitch. I can't control a sub-58hp (it had 58hp 260k km ago) econobox micro car >:( I hate you.

#28, Keep in mind that the V6 car isn't all about power; it has:

*decently sticky 255-width tires
*13" front brakes (C4 Corvette/SN95 Cobra spec)
*Torsen differential
*Steeda "5-link" rear (4-link with parallel uppers and Panhard rod), 350 lb/in rear springs
*Maximum Motorsports K-member (improved geometry, much caster), 300 lb/in coilover front springs
*Misc. chassis bracing

It's very forgiving when driven hard.

#29, what tires do you use daily, and which for track events?

9-29-2007 @ 04:19:11 PM

I'm just using cheap Kumho Ecsta SPTs. Some people say they're almost as soft as the MXs; they work really well in the rain. I know proper competition tires are much stickier, but these are decent for street tires.

That's the other thing; with a second car, I can put street-unfriendly tires and brake pads on one of them.

Fixing the rear suspension and throwing a Torsen in the back were the two best investments I made in handling. The Torsen is SO much better than the OEM plate-clutch differential, except in extreme low-traction conditions where it tends to act like an open diff.

I thought about SPTs - went with ASTs since I didn't want to spring that much more.

what will the second car/track rat be?

Anything would be better than the 712s I had before. Good god, those things were hard. When I had the 4.10s in the rear, I could do a rolling burnout in third gear at 50 MPH, and I could still do the same thing in second gear when I went back down to 3.27s. With the SPTs, 3.27s, and Torsen, it's about how it should be--halfway decent grip in typical wet or dry weather, and I can throttle-steer it a little.

i have $58 Sumitomo HTR Zs now.
Was unaware it had a 160 treadwear rating and it was Z rated when I bought it.
Just wanted something cheap and grippy for daily driving and softer than the hard Ecsta ASTs.
Grippy indeed but unforgiving when tractioin breaks. I'll pay the price for this during winter I imagine.

#33, The pictured Cobra that I just bought from a guy on the forums, probably, but it doesn't actually matter. I intend to build it so it's roughly as capable as my supercharged V6 car, but (hopefully) cheaper to repair and more reliable because it will stay NA. Brake pads and wheels/tires will interchange between the two cars.

I don't intend to do anything competition-oriented at present, but I'm a bit nervous about doing repeated track days in my daily driver. I figure an old 5.0L engine should be cheaper to fix/replace if I hurt it in an HPDE.

you need to ditch those rims.

Nice purchase though.

Looks like the dial on my Grandmas phone she had when I was a kid.

My V6 car actually came with the 16" version of those. I have a policy against spending money on cosmetic bits, so they're staying until I go to a tire wider than 255.
