  1. shucks... Thanks for the offers but looks like I need to attend to a few other things instead of racing with y'all at Road Atlanta darn it!
  2. I normally run and drive one of the Hong Norrth cars but alas none of our cars will be at Road Atlanta. Was looking back at some previous Road Atlanta Chump in car videos and now I want to drive the upcoming RA race. Usually drive the Hong Norrth MX-3s or Supra and my STL prepped Civic (aka Squirrel) in SCCA. I'm easy on cars, good at avoiding stuff that needs to be avoided, reasonably fast with tons of laps at RA Mike Taylor

    Road Atlanta 17 Pic & Vids

    Had fun dicing it up with the Guarino-Watson E30. Whoever was driving could wheel the car. Got into a couple of pretty good barking duels into 10a then decided we were runnign the same pace so decided to let you by and I'd follow. Lots of fun and real good racing. I was in the Hong Norrth white Supra. Cheers! Mike
  4. TIming error. Fastest real lap for the Hong Supra 1:49.2

    Pro driver at Rd.Atl?

    There are quite a few of really fast non-pro drivers around at a Chump race IMHO. We have had one of the well respected pros in our car and he wasn't any quicker than a couple of our fastest drivers. If you want to know what your car can do there are other options other than throwing a pro in your car. The good thing about getting a fast driver in your car even for a few laps is you will know if you should concentrate on driver vs. car prep.
  6. That was me that gave your car the bumper nudge. Sorry about that. I spoke with your driver about that and apologized. My fault but I was surprised about the line he took into 3. Also hadn't expected your car to do running so slow as usually you guys are fast fast fast. I should have known though as earlier in the stint I noticed the driver made a few unpredictable/unexpected moves. Nothing bad mind you but he definitely had the newb look - just like we all did at first.

    Rivals NLA in 225 45 15

    The wear on the 205 ZII SS was good. Went all 15 hours at Road Atlanta on the MX-3 with tread left but bit sure how much. Seems to be pretty comparable wear or maybe a bit better than the Rivals.

    Rivals NLA in 225 45 15

    We have used the 205/50/15 ZII Star Specs in place of the 225/45/15 Rivals when they are out of stock and find that on the MX-3s the 205 Star Specs are just as quick with the added benefit of bring much better in the rain. YMMV IMHO PQRST
  12. Just ran across this thread. 118 WHP on one MX-3, 119 WHP on my MX-3 on a the chassis dyno at Dynolab in Marrieta Ga. I posted the dyno curves last year somewhere on the forum. We don't weigh much, the MX-3 is slippery, has great brakes, and carries great speed through the corners. We really need to thrash the MX-3s pretty hard to get decent lap times. The MR-2 puts at least 100 yards on us down the backstraight at Road Atlanta. Love the MR-2s. Good looking, proper sports cars, and go like stink with the V6. Autocrossed a Gen2 for a few years and miss it. The MX-3 can run with the MR-2s when the slower drivers are in it, but when the fast guys are in the MR-2 we are 3-4 seconds a lap slower at Road Atlanta.
  13. That was me in the Hong Norrth MX-3 at the start. What car were you in? Glad to be of assistance! We have a few Road Atlanta laps under our belts
  14. Saw the TBR car with it's hood up exiting T7 and shocked the windshield was OK. The race was going great for the little Hong Norrth MX-3. Were were cycling from P2 to P6 for most of the race when with 2 hours to go a couple of minor mechanical issues sidelined for an hour. Oh well...
  15. Or you could go with 205/15 ZII*. They seemed to work well enough Saturday at AMP on the MX-3 Seriously though - We think they work as well as the 225 Rivals...
