  1. Thanks, Yeah I usually throw those in that category since they're never consistent. Haha I normally camp at the track in the trailer and thats how much Gingerman charges so I just carry it over normally.
  2. For those who need a template to start with, I've been using/updating this for years.
  3. Haha isn't the natural order to place well > sell car > profit > build new car? Or in my case build a house then another car and rent in the mean time lol
  4. Confirmed, we're doing it! Might be the last race of the Supra in my possession....
  5. Just saw the announcement on Facebook and I think I'm gonna make it happen for the team. Too awesome to miss out on.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 is Ray picked up the Golf as the leader when the Mustang was right behind me (4 cars back from the pace car) and waited a whole lap before waiving us by, which is when the E36 and I took off since the safety crew was almost done at that point and we needed to catch the rest of the pack....
  8. 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!
  9. 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....
  10. 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!
  11. Thats a good point, I'll strive to get this done soon and report back, Pitt is fast approaching....
  12. 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....
  13. That is a much more complete list! Thanks, and agree the numbers speak to the Castrol SRF, but the price is rough....
  14. 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
  15. 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.
