On June 22nd, Fox Valley Motor Cars has a track day at Autobahn Country Club. I should be attending (so far, so good) and there are a couple more slots left if anyone is interested.<p>Just thought I'd let some of you know. If you're interested, email Christopher Greco at [email protected]<p>

Re: Chicago Area R's (Rues R)

I wouldn't track my car, but I'd definitely check it out as a spectator. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Oh, that and my angle gear talks to the clutch in a very angry manner whenever the two need to cooperate. No way am I tracking my R. It's too fragile.

So you're going to check it out as a spectator?<p>This is my first HPDE, so any advice from you guys that have tracked your R's in the past?

Re: Chicago Area R's (Rues R)

I have tracked my car at the autobahn(full course). I was going to do it today again but my R was not in "trackable" condition. Thats what happens when you try to do everything at the last moment <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> - thinks go wrong and $250 go down the drain.<br>The autobahn is a high speed track and very heavy on brakes, of course if you drive your car on the edge.<br>Track brake pads like Porterfield R4 and high boiling point brake fluid like Motul RBF600 are must. If you try to get away with street pads you might end up getting out in the middle of the session to cool down your brakes. Your calipers might change their color to golden brown if you brake really hard(that is what happened to mine). They look nice though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Alslo you might get a message saying "DSTC temporary off" or something like that when your brakes get really hot. This is normal, don't freak out.<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
