Even in the rain the front end of the Camaro's just pops up under acceleration... Torque the rotary is missing... Hopefully we got full green shortly.

Hey, off topic question. I am going to start getting into tracking my car more this year. I currently have the R1Concepts drilled/slotted rotors. Am I okay to run on these and just throw in good pads? Or should I change them out for blanks?

My experience level is being on a track once behind a pace car.

Quality blanks, cross drilled are nonsense unless their on the rear of a FWD car. Green any time now.

Lapping will eat rotors at a pace of 3-4 days, seriously.
Racing destroys rotors, you'll go through a set on one weekend (practice, qualy, and the race/s)

Source Mazda OEM blanks from a dealership that offers a discount to clubs.

RX8's currently in 4th, 6th and 8. Seem to be handling like *** in the rain which you'd think would be more difficult for the big CC cars.

You would think, I wonder if the straights is where the big cc cars have the advantage.

OEM's cheaper and at the rate you'll eat them you'll appreciate the lower cost.

Its a shame the daytonas are so butt. Not like its that hard to design a good looking racecar, all the lmps look 10 x better.

Anyone who's gone to slicks is still gambling. In ten mins. though everyone will be on slicks, and thankfully they're not calling for anymore rain.
