    Lol. This isn’t winter level foolishness...just idle chatter. I want to race more and I want to do it here against my racing family. Figured talking about it might get people on my side about more competitive time.

      Big race weekends are the best.

      Fyi, feature race usually closes a race weekend.

      Also, race weekends are always about hurry up and wait... Not just for the lower series. @ GP3R pre-grid was 60min before race, mock grid was 30min before race!

      IMO, do NOT remove the PT races from race weekends.

      Personally, I chose not to run the series this year because it was too big a time commitment. I instead chose to do 2-3 race weekends to compete in.

      Advantages:
      -Less time away from home/family
      -Less time prepping the car (don't have to do it every week for the next race)
      -roughly same amount of track time in 3 weekends vs. season of PT
      -feels more "legit", part of something bigger, tons more cars
      -family is more interested in joining because weekend away, 8legs wives/daughters come, makes it a much more "team" environment.

      Disadvantages:
      -If your car breaks, you've spent a lot of money to not drive
      -lots of downtime between racing
      -need licence


      Opinions are like assholes, tight?*

      *That was a typo, but funny so I left it.... *Right*

          No way I could go one hour on a tank of fuel.
          Hell, I blew though 8 litres of water/meth in the last 20 min race!

            If nothing changes to add more track time in the Challenge series then I’ll likely get my race license and try to run in Super Production or something similar. Just need a truck and trailer again

              Kinda overdid it on WM. Chris told me engine is running way too lean, so I over compensated with WM to get AFR's down for the race, but went too much and even lost some power (ask Grant).

              Will be adjusting the ecu tune to fix the real issue but for now was playing with WM.

                Yeah I got my race license. Had a great time at the race weekend last year when GT Sprints etc. was at Calabogie. This year they didn't come, which was disappointing.

                I was considering going to some events at Mosport or Tremblant, but my car has been unreliable. So I'm thinking I'll just nurse it through the last couple of races and then get it sorted (hopefully) over the winter.

                Super Production has some interesting rules. All cars must have a data logging system configured in a particular way. Also the vehicle must have been for sale in Canada within the last 15 years. Link

                    He was at my level of speed on the straights so was down quite a bit. It was nice.

                        Crazy have to have the latest aim always?

                        So when new model comes out there going to be a lot of aim systems available?

                            No you aren't. 8legs is running their e46, you'll be fine. And your racepak should be ok for data.

                            All they need is rpm & GPS position iirc.

                              Says you need throttle position sensor.
