Looks like the Mach V BRZ will be on some 235/40R17 Star Specs. Those should do the trick.

I'm thinking of having you and mav1c in some kind of cage match.

Seriously, I'm sure we'll get you guys both in this car somehow.

I'll be up there tomorrow morning by 7am. See you then!

Big thanks to Mach V for sponsoring this weekend! It was an absolute blast to say the least. Great seeing the Brz out there. That car looked great on track as well! I tried to stick behind it for a bit to catch some gopro footage of it getting through turns but kept getting the point by Thanks again guys!

I wondered why you weren't passing! I had gotten pretty used to pointing everyone by by then, so I was in the habit...

Thanks for coming out.

Pics of the event are over in this thread.

On behalf of NASA MA I would like to extend another huge thanks to Dan and Mach V for partnering with us again this year! We had fun and we very much hope you did too.

Also on a personal level I would like to thank Dan for letting me drive the BRZ. What great car - yes it does need more power but who cares, with that great handling and awesome steering feel! Tomorrow I may start trying to figure out how to add one to my collection.

Thanks again everyone,

Jon

Had a great weekend.

First, let me thank Mach V for a job well done getting the head gaskets repaired, and all the other work done on the car. Ran great, and look at that, not a sign of coolant being pushed. Even after those looooooong sessions. Woo hoo!

Extra thanks Dan for letting me take the BRZ out. Such a fun car to drive. Had to get used to the lack of power (and learning to give point-bys again), but the handling is awesome. Would be interesting to try it without the electronics, but probably good they were on. A couple times I don't know if I would have saved it, and since it's not my car...well...better safe than sorry! Only other thing it needs is better brakes, but that just may have been a product of stock brakes on track. Better pads, stainless lines, and good fluid would probably make a big difference. Fun fun car.

HPDE1 was plagued with giant trains on Saturday. SO frustrating. Not sure why, but that was the worst I've ever seen the traffic in HPDE1. Definitely a lot better on Sunday and we got some good sessions in. We were easily the fastest in that group, all thanks to my superior instructing. Seriously, my HPDE1 student was quite a good. He had a lot of Autocross and karting experience, so he "got it". Just needed to work on smoothing things out and using the whole track in the faster sections. Once he got that, he was quite fast. Easily ready for HPDE2 next time.

My HPDE2 student was really good. Fast. Consistent. Smart. I was going to solo him, but his brakes gave up after the first session on Sunday and he called it quits.

Jon,

I'll see you at VIR in a week!

I had a great time, once again. Big thanks to NASA for such a smooth event, and to MachV for sponsoring. It was nice to meet some new people, and see some I haven't seen in a while. Had a lot of fun in the Miata, looking forward to group 2 next spring.

Johnnybravo - thanks for all the instruction!

I should definitely mention how happy I am with Jon and the rest of the NASA Mid-Atlantic staff. The event went smoothly, even with a variety of offs, hot-track car retrievals, and a couple of solid crashes. The staff were always pleasant and positive, and I always got the feeling that the event staff was on task and paying attention -- you can tell they have done this a few times before.

The track staff, corner workers, and emergency crew were the same way: They didn't act mad or freak out when it was time to go to work. The drivers were sitting in their idling vehicles, alert and ready every time I saw them. I overheard some of the wrecker/paramedic staff talking to a driver who hit the tire wall hard, and they sounded polite and sympathetic.

Thanks, everyone!

Wow! What a GREAT weekend! First HPDE experience was a BLAST! Big Thanks first off to Dan for partnering up and making this event happen! It was nice meeting you and chatting while we were parked beside each other in the paddock this weekend.

Also have to give BIG thanks to my instructor David M. who ROCKED! Having the same car definitely made him that much more helpful in providing me with superior instruction. Also, thanks go out to all the track workers, flaggers, EV teams, etc. They kept things running smoothly and with minimal delays when necessary.

Finally, it was great meeting some of you guys that I see on here all the time and some of whom I've spoken to in the past but never had a chance to put a face with the name. TurbojonLS, Grinder34, mav1c, etc. I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to go do it again in the Spring. There was some question in one of our classroom sessions whether we liked the November event, as they were thinking maybe they should nix it... NO WAY! Keep this one going!

The classroom guys aren't the ones who make that decision As far as I'm concerned, this event will be around for as long as it continues to get great feedback and provide safe fast fun for participants (and pay for itself)

Definitely good to see everyone, and meet some new people.

Enjoyed sharing that rib eye with Jon. Thanks Matt!

Here's a link from my in car of the first session on Sunday from Fall finale in the hpde 3 group. This was a shakedown for my new motor setup and new brake setup.

Motor held up fantastic...though I have some serious nose dive under hard braking, to the point the rear was getting very loose into turn 1 hence why I was braking so early. Brakes do stop very well though,not sure if this is more of a suspension issue or a brake bias issue since I'm still running the subaru 2 pots on the back with Sti brembos up front. My go pro cut out in the middle of the second session and missed some really good footage. Looking forward to next season. Great seeing you guys!

Some constructive criticism? Sit closer to the wheel, and don't shuffle steer so much. Trust me, it'll help. Other than that it looked smooth.

I agree with mav1c on the seat positioning, looks like your arms are nearly straight out. There are a variety of thumbrules on where you should position yourself, but being closer to the wheel gives you better leverage on the wheel and makes it easier to make fine steering inputs.

Were you downshifting to 2nd in turn 1 and turns 5/6/7? I would think with that much power that you could easily stay in 3rd through those corners and save yourself the downshifts/upshifts.

Thanks! I have tons to learn still and lots of room to improve! This is my first season really going at it in a while and have made a lot of changes to the car this season! I am too big for the current sparco pro 2000 Seats I currently have. The openings in the back of the seat for the harness's are too low for my long torso! Ill be switching to the adv next year. Any and all pointers and tips are greatly appreciated! I know some of you have been in this sport a long time! Not gonna hurt my feelings in the least!

Yes, I am going down into second. I was trying to get through in third, but was bogging pretty bad getting on the gas. I know if I kept corner speed up going through 5,6,7 just a little more this may be possible..I just couldn't find the grip to get around 1 in third though. If that is the case that I can stay in 3rd, that'll mean I only need 3rd and 4th for the entire track. Keep in mind I have a 5 Spd still with ppgs and the 3.7 final from the 06-07wrx so my 2nd at 7,000 rpm is at about 78mph...and i'm at about 82mph if I were to shift at 7,500 rpm. I will make it a point to watch shuffling the wheel. I did notice that in the vid myself,lots of moving of the wheel. The whole point of these things are to become a better driver though, and I appreciate the input! Thanks

I have Sparco Evo2s in my Mustang and have the same issue. When I got them my buddy (who was a Sparco dealer at the time) told me to just pull the seat cushion (the part with the pebbly fabric on it; leave the thigh cushion in there). Works like a charm - drops me an inch or so, which allows the shoulder harness openings to line up properly. It's still perfectly comfortable like that. I've driven the car for hours on the street like that with no issue.

Ah, belay my last. I figured you had a 5MT, but I didn't realize how different the gearing was. When I still had the 5MT it was with the 4.11 gears and the N/A 6500rpm redline, so I was running 3rd through there because 2nd was too short.
