    Default Full track at Mosport vs Calabogie...

    I've got an event coming up at Mosport on the full track and have only been to Calabogie once so forgive the rookie question...Mosport looks fast and less technical. Is that right? The maps show considerably less corners and faster longer straights. I ran my all seasons last time (and will again this coming Thursday) but figured that I will need new tires after that. I was going to get some track tires as I won't be buying anymore all seasons for the car but if Mosport is mainly a speed track I might be OK with what I've got.

    Any thoughts?

    As long as your tires pass tech you really won't care about them. All that counts at Mosport is gasoline and ball juice quantity. Isn't there a few threads about this? Maybe someone can link?

    Its supper fun more than CMP IMO

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Is this in general or just on the Andretti straight-away? Does anyone have a top speed reached on both tracks for comparison? Just curious.

    I did Mosport on all seasons in the 07 Stang. No problems... lots of aural (TWSS) feedback. Tires were fooked when i got home though. I think they are for sale on my current stang at an unknown dealership lol

    Mosport in the race car was pretty much only 4th and 5th gears, the entire track is fast, except for corner 5, down into 2nd for that one. Calabogie is 3rd and 4th gears.

    His only actual question was:

    Mosport looks fast and less technical. Is that right?

    I did ask for any thoughts on running the all-seasons as well...I'll see how they behave on the 30th and go from there.

    O a different note,I am officially scared of turn #2 now ;-(
