Anyone Else Track there car?

Postby classa64 » December 21st, 2012, 2:02 pm

I drive down south from me to Toronto Motorsports Park ( Cayuga ). For $140 you can lap your car as much as you want allllll day. Only passing alowed is on the Front straight. It used to ba an old airport so its wide open nothing to hit. Me getting chased down by a Mini and an Evo. Its so much fun and really gets rid of stress to LOL

Added Hawk front pads and a CG lock for the seatbelt

Nice! The 1g teg is to heavy, way under powered, and way under braked in my opinion so Ill be using my 85 CRX Si for track days once its finished.

Heavy...Yes, Under powered, I guess it depends on what kinda tracking your doing. And with Just Hawk pads I am quite happy with how much and how late I can Brake going into the turns.

I am just in it to learn how the car handles to the extreme, I would much rather make it turn and stay flat then add more power. I will agree though that the CRX would be a much better platform LOL

uh...the teg is 2300 and some change in weight, and is about 118 hp so it's pulling about 20 lbs per hp. An 85 crx si is way less power at 91, which is countered by it's featherweight of sub 1900 pounds. So the crx pulls about 20 pounds per horsepower. Mine is pretty much for auto-x and track days exclusively. Feel free to check out my youtube channels. http://www.youtube.com/user/scoobydoo731

Totally agreed, in stock format. suspension isnt setup very well for this type of stuff but all the respect in the world for the OP to just take it and race. I know that racing is a blast and gets rid of so much stress. Wish I had a track around where I live to do this.
