just working on my list of what I am thinking and trying to do

Compeleted
1) SCCA Track night at AMP Aug 12
2) Carbon Fiber wrap on the roof
3) working a windshield banner using Steve McQueen quote from LeMans - we'll see if it works...
Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting. - it worked
4) Stillen Canards - SOLD
5) buy the XGPS160 - SkyPro GPS Receiver - done


To Do
1) SCCA Track night at AMP Sept 16 -- sold out
2) More Assetto Corsa play time, now I have a stick shift to use -- drive different tracks and cars
3) Get paint protection - touch up, as I said at one point after 9 years lots of swirls
4) Canards -- but not Stillen
5) Lip / Skirts / Steering wheel -- still thinking
6) Driver school
6.1) will be back at mid-ohio next year, with the Z
6.2) Others still thinking -- any suggestions
7) figure out an easy way to data from track days video/times/etc..
7.1) Garmin new Garmin Catalyst -- looking good, looking for black friday special
7.2) ApexProd

My main thoughts now, are to try to work on improving my driving skills. The season is pretty much done, need to make the mental effort now...

thanks for the read

well living in an apartment complex with a little bit of a loud car always make me worry. But I met a neighbor the other day who said my car was BAD ***, because he loves hearing the sound when it starts up........

always makes me laugh and feel good about my Z

In the past 3 weeks have done the tail of the dragon 3 times, not all in the Z.
But it is the most enjoyable. The other two were my GF Honda Element and my MX-5, with the top down of course...

With being semi-retired, trying to do the dragon, when ever I am home...

On the tail of the dragon

Back end

first time trying from my google photos, if you can't see it, please tell me, I need to learn new things..

I have been driving the tail since September 30th, except for one week
twice in the Z
once in a Honda element
the rest have been in my Miata

Wanted to watch how the leaves changed and have no excuse for not going once a week...

Well decided to sign up for this course
Driver61 - Sim Racing Fundamentals MasterClass (MX-5)

https://driver61.com/sim-racing/sim-...aining-course/

did it for two reasons...
1) my sons are always 3-4 seconds faster than me...
2) just maybe some of what I learn will help me in on track days

I'll let you know on how it all goes... starts this week and goes for 5 weeks...

It will definitely help. Sims are no different than the track, good instruction and seat time!

Driver61 - Sim Racing Fundamentals MasterClass (MX-5) review week 1 and week 2
week1 - Technical
was a technical time on understanding discord, iracing, the training software/access, and remote access if needed.

Week 2 - vision -- here is this week outline
  • Why proper vision will make you faster
  • An example of good vision: active eyes
  • Exactly where you should be looking on track
  • On track vision demonstration (Okayama - Short Configuration)
  • Track exercise - Okayama Short
  • On track vision demonstration (Lime Rock - Grand Prix Configuration)
  • Track exercise - Lime Rock - Grand Prix Configuration
  • Racing with Others
  • Your Training Journal - Vision Week
  • Join Your Group Training

So far it has been good, educational as to trying different things. I have always had a problem of not looking far enough ahead. Working hard on that.

The group training, may need some improvement, there are up to 6 of you in the session, and the instructor takes time watching you race and how to improve. I had a hard time with this, because of how loud iracing was vs him talking to me and understanding about where I was and what to look for.

those are my thoughts....

Vision in all sports is key to success. Good vision allows you to act and anticipate if you have to react you are on your back foot or have to slow or pause. This is not good and you will be slow. This way hard to do even if you tell yourself to do it because hwo far and where do I need to look and then you got to keep any eye on everyone else , oh and don't forget the corner workers too. The answer is seat time!
