Spiike's track day fun

I have about 5 more track days this year and thought maybe I'd create a journal of track pics since you guys might enjoy them. So here is a start.

7/29 Autobahn CC - Team Stradale track day

The car: Monaco blue 335 e40 vrsf dp/fmic jb4 kw v2's... rest in my mod journal. Car also has 22ple applied.


In the afternoon Monaco Blue looks almost black.


Motion shot


Fast shutter


Can you believe that's someone's garage in the background?!?! Must be nice.


What Morr VS8.2's look like while spinning (a lil windy). They make amazing track wheels. Watch in 1080p




8/16/13 Blackhawk Farms Raceway. First time at this track so I was learning the lines in this vid and missed a bunch of apex's. Afternoon runs were much better. Not sure what is up with the reference vid of me getting gas at the track's stupid $8/gal pump.



Gopro vids didn't come out too well but I'll have some better vids on my next track day. PFC08 pads dust like crazy so my Morr's look gunmetal.



Here is some autocross fun 8/24/13. My fastest time of the day was 27 secs on balding hankook v12's, but I didn't get a vid of the fastest run as I was punishing the car with back to back runs. Helmet behind passenger seat was rolling around (no helmets required for autocross).




Made it on to AMS's facebook! This is at the AMS event at Autobahn Country club on my birthday 9/7
Here is the AMS facebook gallery: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...0902880&type=1







Some Autocross fun





More to come soon...

Nice! Cornering set looks great.

Ambient temp and any thermal issues? Oil cooler setup?

I see you're in Aus. I go to Melbourne each year to work (Laverton). Have you gone out to Philip Island raceway?

I was actually doing back to back 20 min runs last week and car performed like a champ on the extended 40min runs. VRSF FMIC really helps with heat soak and I have the oil cooler BMW installed. Ambient temps were about 80*F that day, so quite hot for the track day. What really helps though is the PFC08 pads and ATE super blue. Scariest thing happened to me last year when I boiled the brake fluid and the brake pedal dropped to the floor going 100mph.

Thanks! I'm falling in love with the track and thinking of maybe getting Hankook rs3's next, but still learning the limits of the car. Normally I wouldn't use 19's but the Morr VS8.2's are so light it literally felt like I was on 18's but definitely not as agile as 17's.

Map 5 with 5 gallons of e85. Car was a frickin' rocket on the straights.

I definitely recommend anyone thinking of tracking to flush brakes with ATE Super Blue, Castrol SRF, or RBF 600 brake fluid. Nothing scarier than going into a 90* turn at 100mph and losing your brakes because you're not using high temp fluid. Performance Friction 08 pads are also amazing and I couldn't get them to fade even with back to back sessions. My stock pads fade by the 3rd lap and that can be equally as scary.

I might run e85 or some race gas along with my larger oil cooler and fmic to keep my track temps in check too.

Brakes are all set- RacingBrake xt910 pads and fresh rbf600 fluid only.

Nice! Sounds like you're good to go! Let us know how the RB XT910's work out.
