  1. I have a 24' + 3' V nose trailer. Tow it with whatever Enterprise has at the time. Move the car out and can easily fit 2 queen size air mattresses. Space heaters work well, and I have a 2/3 size fridge/freezer combo with an 80's microwave/cancer machine on top. Bunch of LED strip lights and a china freight generator work like a charm every weekend. I've found I need to be at the track too early for me to want to drive ~15 minutes from a hotel.
  2. I sat behind an E36 with a light bar and we were both stuck behind a white Golf at PITT. E36 was doing everything in his power to get the golf to speed up, flashing lights, swerving back and forth like a mad man, trying to pull along side them. Nothing. Horns aren't the answer here. Black flags seem to be the consensus and I think its absolutely warranted. Once the Golf decided to pit, unrelated to caution, the E36 and I took off at what had to be full race pace to catch back up to the field which took almost an entire lap. We were in 6th at the time, I'm still livid about it. The worst part i
  3. This was a super fun and I was astonished I beat the ATV so badly after riding it at Gingerman, also can't believe theres proof!
  4. Huge shout out to everyone here, it was absolutely the MC. Put new one in (back to stock master and a similar booster from the manual Wilwood) and bled it, days later still the same pressure and pedal feel. Only concern I have now is the pedal doesn't seem to return very quickly with the booster and car on....
  5. Yeah I'm thinking even if the fluid boiled it wouldn't turn near as dark as this fluid has. I have the same MC in my daily driver and have been experiencing issues so new parts should be here next week. Brake fluid hasn't stayed in this system for more than a month maybe so none of it is old (just from replacing calipers and what not) but I did recently see that the Supertech fluid I was using does sometimes ship with almost 4% of moisture from the factory.... I'll keep those tests in mind for the future as I hadn't thought of those either!
  6. Thats a good point, I'll strive to get this done soon and report back, Pitt is fast approaching....
  7. I think I'm to the same point and cost wise if you're not touching the system as often then it makes sense. Hard to follow that until the system doesn't have any more issues....
  8. That is a much more complete list! Thanks, and agree the numbers speak to the Castrol SRF, but the price is rough....
  9. Got bored and made this for anyones future reference. Brake fluid temp and price comparison https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14TwsXqMk1wdmfVkUTJITRWCVd46DK6fFcIFGZXSue5g/edit?usp=sharing
  10. Okay so last night I checked over the brake system, pedal can't even be pumped up to build normal pressure and they are zero leaks/weeps at any of the corners. I didn't have a chance to block off each corner but the fact that there were no leaks and the pedal can't build adequate pressure leads me to believe the MC is toast. Also not sure if this is normal (has always happened to some extent with the Wilwood MCs), but everytime you push the pedal, no matter how aggressive, fluid launches out of the cap like a freaking torpedo.
  11. I'm pretty sure I can ride my bike to your place from where GWR and my trailers are parked...
  12. Agreed, ill do that tonight or this weekend and report back! thanks for all the help!
  13. I did look back through the fluid thread a few months ago which lead me to the Jegs fluid being cheap and easy enough to get, local places don't seem to carry anything good unfortunately.
  14. 3 wide around the pond is gonna be nuts..... Might need to bring some rib protectors.....
  15. Yeah I need to look at wet boiling point before picking my next fluid. I'm working on a quick comparison list at the moment. Ill check for places where heat could be an issue and throw some reflective heat barrier on there. I understand that heat soak could be an issue but nothing has changed that would make me think that would be an issue. Haven't changed anything. Just replaced everything over winter and haven't found any leaks anywhere. Haven't specifically checked for hose swelling but none are wet even though they are older. You know I am, just need
