    Rear Caliper Options

    I had KSports for 1.5yrs, 9k miles, 10+ track days. No problems at all. Standard AP caliper size pads, on my 3rd set now (EBC reasonably cheap). I understand older version calipers were prone to have issues, but happy with current ones. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    GT86Curn's Facelift build

    I would expect so. My is EL, but I have plenty of headroom at Bedford. This week at Bedford it was 85db at 5.5k rev (which I though was a bit higher than usual 80-82db). Below link is my car Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

  8. Good option, lets do it there. Who else is up for this? Once I know the numbers will book a table Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  9. Any local recommendations? I may splash out on staying at PitStop at Bishops Storford, Wild Hart was suggested as a place that can accommodate few of us https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g609066-d1469102-Reviews-WildHart_Restaurant-Bishops_Stortford_Hertfordshire_England.html
  10. Very good - looking forward to it. Would be you, Lionel ( @LGE) and me. I will probably be doing Bedford the day before and will aim to stay close by. Lionel will be staying overnight as well so we would be planning to grab a meal in the evening. Will find suitable place and may be others would like to join as well. Are you travelling on the day?
  11. The London International Auto Show 2019 August 11, 2019 Haywards Heath, RH17 6TL Can be an interesting option for a club event in August. Check out the details https://londoncartel.org/index.php/the-show/ Who would be interested in attending? If we have enough interest will aim to organize a club stand and put it in the calendar as "official" club event. Let me know

    Go pro help

    I have Racechrono pro on Android I know HLT works fine on both, its also good for multiple cameras (you can use both mobile camera and external one, or multiple external), not tried Racechrono with multiple cameras though. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Schroth Rallye 3 ASM harness

    It doesn't, i use blanks rather than disconnecting the seat bell warning sound, easy enough. Note that while these belts (and stock seats) are not designed to be compatible with HANS, you can use Simpson Hybrid device, and it fits quite a lit better than standard 3 point belt. Hope to never find how good it is though... Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    I use GoPro with Racechrono Pro for track days. Its pretty simple and intuitive. Pair GoPro via WiFi with mobile and the app will find it in "Settings". There you can also set/ change other things. Dont use GoPro app when starting sessions, use Racechrono and it will be easy for load/ copy video into the app and then export it. See example video below Another good app is Harrys Lap Timer, although I find Racechrono more user friendly (and certainly easier to copy files) and I like map with speed and acceleration data to see where I lose time/ not consistent/ etc. I have GoPro5, which is good enough for me (got it second hand as well). I also used it to record rafting, mountain biking, skiing ... GoPro7 looks like a decent improvement, but for what I use it 5 is more than good enough. Couple tips/ suggestions: - get good camera mount. I use Hague, which is a bit pricey and you can make similar DIY. You will have too much vibration with mounting on top of dashboard (although 7 may be better). Dont use suction cap, even with tethering (not worth the risk imo); - 128gb card, not 64 - once you start in FullHD (dont bother with 4K), 64gb is not enough for a track day. Select high speed one. 50fps. - get extra battery (you will forget to switch the camera off occasionally, so extra is very handy). There are cheaper action cameras, but overall I am pretty happy with GoPro and its quite versatile to use in a range of sports. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
