Solo (Autocross) / Re: Brake pad question

Thanks, Mike.  A number of local drivers have recommended the R4-S.  I talked to engineering at the factory specifically about my setup and they recommended the R4-1s.  We'll see how long the pads and rotors last as that is the big unknown.  Hey - whoever said playing with cars were cheap?

Thanks for the delete.  I'll be running the new BFG Rivals.

Solo (Autocross) / Brake pad question
« on: March 13, 2013, 05:41:21 pm »
I guess you could say I'm more looking for opinions than taking a poll but here's the situation:  '95 street and Auto-X Vette planning to run B Stock this year.  Car is due for new brake pads.  I'm looking at Porterfield R4-1 of R4-S.  I've already heard from my local expert and talked to the factory.  Anybody else (especially Vette pilots) have any input before I jump in and make a decision?  Thanks  _Karl

I did it!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
And I want to thank everyone at today's meet for making today one of the greatest days I've had in a long time.  Everything I've heard about how friendly and helpful the Autocross community is is an understatement to the way I was treated today.  Thank you, thank you, thank you,one and all.  I'd like to thank you all individually but I can only remember a few names from all the people I met.  Will I be back?  You bet your butt I'll be back!  Till then, y'all drive safe.  It's dangerous out there on those streets.

Thank you, gentlemen.  I feel much relieved.

Now... if I could only get this nervous twitch out of my right foot!

Well, I've finally made the decision.  Sunday I will be at The Ralph with my toy.  I have read everything I can find on the net and have several books on order.  But I still feel like I'm lost.  This autocross stuff involves a whole lot more than steering in a straight line, mashing on the gas and holding on.  And I haven't even done that in forty-some years.

I guess what I'm looking for here is some reassurance.

1. Will  I still qualify as a Novice even though I show up in a (stock) '95 Vette?  BS sounds like it includes some awfully fast cars.

2. Will there be any type of novice instructors around to explain how to make the car go in OTHER than a straight line?

Thank you and see you Sunday.
