    I think magnetic numbers will probably need edge taping at some point – especially if you track in the cold? Maybe ovals are better in this respect?

    I think the back straight at CTMP always has had some remnants of magnetic numbers after/during CE events in the number of times that I have been there (all in cold/wet weather).

    OK thanks — no indication on the CTMP ticket site at this point. I presume like in past years that is where tickets will be available?

    So what about 2017 — is this on for this year? No sign at CTMP site — any other indication of whether it is a go or no go?

    The Garrison one at CTC and the one I supplied the URL for and bought is rated 1A10BC.

    The particular one I supplied the url for has the required metal to metal clamp and is rechargeable — lots aren’t.

    And is reasonably priced to boot.

    Someone once told me the extinguisher is more for a fire in someone else’s car, not your own.

    I suspect that the “must be able to access extinguisher with your belts on” is either not a rule or is not really enforced.

    OK thanks.

    My main goal was finding more options (and if truth be known cheaper options) for the 17″ wheels. No other real goal. I was finding very few OEM size options and those that I did find were more expensive than tires for 19″ wheels (that I bought recently and plan to use anyway). There are lots of options for OEM size tires for 19″ OEM wheels in a wide range of prices and capabilities (but not 17″ ones — which seems strange as I am thinking there are lots of those wheels out there).

    I was planning on leaving the 17s in the garage as backup so I might just pass on new tires — the ones mounted are useable (but getting a little old).

    So you are suggesting changing both back and front sizes? What about 215/50 front and the OEM 235/50 back? Any reason for not choosing that combination?

    The speedo is rear wheel based I assume?

    The rims I have so I don’t want to change. Is there some other tire size that would work with these rims that would provide a wider range of staggered options?

    Maybe a different tire for front and back?

    Andy:

    It’s on this page:

    https://reg.pcaucr.org/track/signup.do

    I have attached an annotated screen capture for reference. I thought IDS (or a waiver) was always a prerequisite?

    Regardless I am in the Green group and thought maybe there was some new special requirement.

    in reply to: Where to Find Helmets #18478
    Brian Sullivan

    My research suggested that an open face helmet was a better choice in a car with working air bags.

    UK based commenters indicated that most tracks in the UK demanded a closed face helmet for “open cars”. Whether a Boxster is an “open car” or not wasn’t totally clear. Anyway I went with an open face one (my car is a Boxster and I don’t think I will be in the UK with the helmet and my car).

    I did buy my helmet online (and it fit the way I wanted) but I can see where trying on first is a good strategy.

    You have to remove the front bolts on the seat rail to fit the bracket underneath (there are plastic covers that need to be removed to get at the bolts – they are replaced after – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmGAspMqBRk should give an idea of how to remove the covers) — once the bracket is fitted the bolts (Torx e12) are put back in through the bracket and the rail and bolted down (36 ft/lbs is the torque requirement if I recall). The seat stays in place during the process.

    Yes – the bracket works with manual seats (mine are manual) — the lever to unlock and slide the seat back and forth still works as designed.

    The bracket still needs an extinguisher with a metal clip down bracket. I bought a “Garrison” 2.5 lb extinguisher from CTC (http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/heavy-duty-1a10bc-fire-extinguisher-2-5-lb-0460078p.html#srp). It has the appropriate metal connection.
