Hard to say on cca adding any more...so far in my experience probably not the case with how things get planned so far in advance and whatnot, but I suppose it’s always possible! The trick is that budgets for track rentals are already really really tight and barely break even so it’s tough if there’s not a ton of participation.

I know the north Texas “lone star” chapter is really trying to boost racing participation. Race school at MSR in May will hopefully help with that.
COTA races in June looks to still be moving forward, and we did Hallett last year so not sure why we wouldn’t do a race weekend there again this year. Dates for the hpde are currently set for September.

I'm signed up for the COTA race in June - really looking forward to it as it will be my first event with the cca. Hopefully they get a few more entries, not a good track to have light attendance - will kill the budget quickly. Only 3 of us signed up in B Modified right now.

I think they were able to swing COTA by getting a specific race-only session within another group that rented the track so I think that should work out ok.

Interesting - was wondering what happened that they committed to it without getting the amount of interest that they had hoped for before the beginning of the year. Glad that it happened - ought to be a fun weekend.

How often should I be replacing wheel bearings and control arms so that I don't have a fantastic failure on track? Pushing the car relatively hard on NT01 / AR-1, mostly stock power, just exhaust bolt ons.

Let's say average 1-2 track days per month. Replaced front wheel bearings in Feb 2019. Control arms replaced about 2 years ago.

The problem with the eBay ones I've found at least is that they look like they've been taken out of a total cars with damage to the pedal itself. I'll probably end up buying a whole new assembly from Turner/ECS - https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-5...e-pedal-assem/

Were these old pads? I used to have this happen years ago. I reported it to Cobalt Friction. They re-worked their formula and it totally stopped happening. At COTA a couple weeks ago, I wore an XR1 pad all the way to the backing plate. No issues.

I'm actually pretty upset on the XR1
I almost lost all braking

I've been involved with racing for 10 years and nothing like this has ever happened
Then to see those stubs when I had 30 plus percent left just put the worst taste in my mouth

I love their product , best pads for my setup
I just came very close to being screwed sadly



With that said, I'll be buying another set lmao

Trailer Towing Tongue Weights

For those that are towing their M3- What kind of tongue weights are you guys running (and what kind of truck). Is everyone defaulting to a WDH?

I've got an F250 with a max tongue weight rating of 600 lbs without a WDH and 1250 lbs with one. Trailer, car and stuff weighs about 6500 lbs. And I've got it balanced so there is 550 lbs on the tongue. Thinking about getting a WDH to bring up the margins.

WDH hitch is a good idea here.

You’ll know you don’t have enough tongue weight when the trailer starts to wag the truck.
