Thanks for the insight, Dr. Dre.

White people really don't season their food.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

I don't think Gonzo wants back. I called and emailed him a few times, he never replied.
That's funny - he always answers mine.

Well, you two look very cute riding together in your red car. So I can't compete.

Hey Billy,

My buddy is bringing his CTR to the track next month. I did a little bit of research and it looks like fuel starvation under half tank, some mild overheating concerns and the stock tires aren't great. Anything else we should be alert to?

The track stuff I've read includes the overheating issues on hot days. A track rat said short shifting by 500 to 1000 will help. One guy complaining had a level 1 tune so that might have been a contributing factor. Another suggestion is going to a different grill to increase air flow, but since it is a new car doubt if your friend would want to do that. Tires...well as you know it's all about pressure. They aren't dedicated track tires, but folks say they do pretty good. I would go up in hot pressure to start by a few #'s maybe 38 front 35 rear and see what happens. Only heard of one guy whining about rolling the tires so bad he sandpapered the rim edges. He was probably trying to be Tanner Foust. Only saw one post about fuel starvation below 1/4 tank. Some complaints about brake pads getting hot, but most brake comments are positive. I haven't heard much else negative, however, it is a street car so it does have limitations. Oh, keep it in R+ mode.

What are the different modes? I saw something about the controls eating up rear brakes (pretty standard in modern traction control systems) but I'm hesitant to have him turn much off on day 1 ever on track.

Also, do you know how hard pad swapping is? I was going to have him bring a spare set of pads from an autoparts store and just return them if we don't need them but if it's a giant hassle I won't bother.

Modes: Comfort, Sport and R+. It adjusts suspension settings and steering feedback. To me it also feels like it affects throttle mapping, but cannot confirm. On brake pad changing I will wander out look at mine, do a little research and let you know. Update: Fronts easy...Brembo remove two pins and remove pads. Rears require: pop spring keeper off then remove two bolts(7mm allen) from caliper to lift off. Looks easy.

Do we really want to know what the masking tape is for? haha

You are from GA.... And you ask this? 😂 I am going to assume that you don't go shooting often B3.

Tape is there to hang targets or cover the holes on used targets.
