    Everyone,

    I’m signed up to attend the Lime Rock Auto Cross on July 13th and I’m very excited, but I was wondering…is there any recommendation for car prep, or for that matter, is there anything I should do after the event? For example, should I change the brake fluid or maybe the pads? Your sage advice will be appreciated!

    This event is pretty low key for the first timer…and guys that have done it before know whats going on

     

    Basically, if you have a stock car, and are just out to explore the limits under controlled conditions, the only thing you need to do is make sure nothing is rattling around or falling off…a few extra pounds of air in the tires and go out and have fun

     

    the more ‘competitive’ folks, will be dialing in their shock adjustments, maybe switching tires, more aggressive brake pads, etc, etc…

    I went last year and had alot of fun, but it was extremely hot that day and my rad was already baby diarrhea color so it didnt take long for my miata to tell me to cut my day short. So i guess my suggestion is – since its going to be in the middle of july and it gets extra hot on the tarmac, make sure youve got your cooling in order and taken appropriate measures.

    The last spot has been filled! (As of 1:00PM 7/11) And by another Miata, so it will stay a 100% Miata event 👍

    That didn’t last long. A spot has opened up once again. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family.

    SO, hopefully for the last time, we are looking for one more spot to fill!

    Call me, email me, PM me, send up a smoke signal…
