Braking later and harder than everybody else is a big statement.

I was standing next to Callum's car when he just got off the track and parked up. Instantly his front brakes began to smoke so he jumped back in the car and drove up the street to help cool them down. He also happens to haveve the fastest lap times.

not to mention that the mx5 would have been one of the lightest cars out there.. so saying that you were braking harder then anyone else is rubbish unless your mx5 is a lot heavier then a s chassis

well speedo dont work but for me limiter in 4th is 190 as per trap speeds while dragging and I was getting to limiter in 4th as I was breaking and unless my diff changed its self since I last dragged I would of been at 180 at top of 4th

 

But maby I will get a speed sender for the next day and see

Just to requote this as I saw a speed of 168kmh which is only 12 kmh of 180kmh but as I said I don't have a speedo and I'm going off gears and Previous experience with gears and speeds and top of 4th for me is 180kmh

If i could do 180 before braking there i'd be about 2 or 3 secs quicker over the lap. did you have a go at the sprints or just cruise sessions?

sprints well the 1 or 2 laps in a few sessions before being waved in due to fuel issue

An extra lap is possible, I found my standard brakes were still holding up well but getting a bit spongey on the last lap.

I did'nt have any problems with brakes (dot 4 fluid project mu club racer pads and slotted front discs) I did a long stint at the end of the first day when it was opened up for everyone, did somthing like 15 laps (could be more could be less) the only problem i had there was my bendix ultimate pads started de laminating but still no fade as your off your brakes for most of the lap they have plenty of time to cool. so an extra lap or two in the sprint sessions would be awesome.

lol

 

I couldn't help myself

 

Hopefully events like this and the popularity of WTAC will get more people out to the regular track days and get some more use out of these cars we spend so much money on. When is the next one :D

Norwell, Is not a high braking circuit, even looking at Callums on board he was maxing at 150 - 160 on the main straight, the curves after that are small dabs to settle car more than to really slow the car down, and the next big brake is into the hairpin going back ontot the main straight... i run red stuff and green stuff and they would have been untaxed over the day

 

simple solution to brake fade is to use the brakes less... :D

you've got an mx5 with 80kw. try being in a faster car with better tyres, I know how hard those other guys jump on the anchors to get the low minute times.

 

yep... i was doing 1.12's in a car with 80rwkw... that means i was braking later and harder than every body else who could go faster in the straights.. fast isnt just in a straight line...

is there a polite way to say "pull your head out of your ass?"

 

Yawn...
