      Current Theme Change   08/01/2017

      With the new update to 4.2 we have gained a lot of new features.  I will post more about those later.  With the change though came some problems with our current themes as the creator of those themes has not made the changes that allow us to take advantage of some of the new features.   I will try to clean up the default theme to make it more appealing for the time being.

    New Article:Making the Leap from HPDE to Racing Part II: What goes into picking a car and a series"I began following the development of the class about a year ago, watching their forum and Facebook page to see how things panned out. Any racing is a big investment, and it can be a gamble to test a new class. No one wants to race in a class with only a handful of cars."We followed Chad Morehead as he navigated BMW CCA and NASA race schools in the leap from HPDE to club racing. What follows is a discussion of the thought process he went through in choosing a car and a series to race in. Read more:http://trackdayzone.com/articles-general/features/trackdaydrivers

    New original article:Dave Scott: Race Coach"...he was able to mentally disconnect from the mechanics of driving, from the ‘oh where do I have to hit the brakes, how slow do I have to go, where do I need to start my turn in, when do I have to go to the gas,’ to the mental aspect of paying attention to what the car was telling him and making minute changes as he looked farther and farther ahead. It fundamentally changed his driving and allowed him to execute properly with the brake pedal.”Read more:http://trackdayzone.com/articles-general/features/trackdaydrivershttp://trackdayzone.com/

    New original article: Suspension Tuning with Mike Skeen, Jade Buford, Matt Romanowski, Dave Scott and Robert Metcalf "Most of the focus for the setup with this type of car is in getting it comfortable and preserving the tire--this also happens to be where the tire is working best." We posed a hypothetical question to our team of professional driving coaches: You are asked to coach an experienced solo level track day driver (not necessarily a racer) with a new car. Let's say he or she has just purchased the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE. The driver has no experience with suspension set up, but understands it in theory. How would you go about teaching this driver the basics of suspension set up over the course of a weekend HPDE event? Assume he is familiarized with the new car on track. Would the skills be specific to the particular track or would the knowledge be transferable to other tracks? If one weekend is not enough to accomplish this, how much training would be required for the driver to be able to do his/her own experimentation? Would data logging help? How would it be used? Assuming there is a track support person to take tire temps in the hot pits, would those be useful? How would tire temps be used?

    Message to Valtteri Bottas: Swerving Doesn’t Heat the Tires by Paul Haney "How quickly a racing tire comes up to a good operating temperature, at least 180 degrees F, depends on the load, car speed, ambient temperature and the track surface temperature."
