I went back to ICAR last week and I pulled off a 1:56.9 with a passenger. I felt like I could push a bit more and get a better time, but then again I didn't want to break something and ruin my day. I don't have a lap timer and I go there to have fun, so setting a hot lap wasn't a priority.

here's a video of that lap around the track. I was being chased by an S2000 which was a bit slower, but made me work hard to keep my lead.


I'll be back there on October 8th if anyone here wants to join me

Ahh! Finally! Locals!!
All results since my last post added to the thread start.

@Cdnrx8, what clubs do you run with?

@Lookalike: where do I sign up for Oct 8? I haven't run at all this year, would like to fit something in. I know I'm doing something wrong at ICAR, would be nice to work on it.

@JakeKaminskisRacing: what's the story with that Starlet in your result sheet? 80's Starlet or the 90s hot hatch?

You can sign up here : Lapping - ICAR
Although I would wait a bit before registering. This year they haven't given any incentives to sign up early, and with the crappy weather we had all summer, I will wait 2 days before the event to make sure it doesn't rain. Actually you can even register the morning of the event now that I think about it.

Do you remember which corner gives you more trouble than other?
Would it be by any chances... the infamous carousel? :P

Oh and I just saw the added time you put for me, thanks! but my RX8 isn't really stock, lol.
I have RS3, DTC 60, Bilstein PSS, Hotchkis Sway bars, Koyo S2 rad, AutoEXE Catback
I also have a few other non performance enhancing mods: FAL 420 fans (to fit the S2 rad), BHR coils, S2 fuel pump, RX8performance AST, SOHN, Battery in Trunk, DEFI gauges.

Updated! I'll have to check my ICAR videos to see where we differ.

Sorry for the late reply bud, should have hit me up with a PM. I have plenty of experience on Gingerman so the line is pretty dialed in for me. Just adjusting to the limits of the RX8 in factory trim on "ok" tires. I am losing a bunch of time due to the factory alignment and lack of negative camber. The Riken Raptor tires are definitely not a fan of sustained heavy G loads, primarily in off camber corners. Soon as the front sets, it washes out due to the poor contact patch design. I knew the tires I bought were cheap and not the greatest but for the price they're f*cking awesome!

My setup is about as basic as it can get.
2004 RX-8 GT
BHR Coil Packs
245/40/18 Riken Raptor
Hawk HPS Pads
Motul RBF 600

Hey Loki I haven't done any serious track work for a while but at the time I ran with the Quebec BMW club and affiliates. At Shannonville I have a friend who organizes something once a year. Always had a good time. Guys are they still doing lapping on mondays at St Eustache and I bleieve they were doing Tuesday night at Icar. If I can get my solenoid valves fixed I'll have to consider joining you guys on October 8. at Icar.

Btw great thread.

I also ran with BMW since about 2012, though only had one event this year, and even that ended with technical difficulties. Surprised we never crossed paths. My last Shannonville experience was with Saint-LAC in like 2012, before I really knew what I was doing.

I'm in for Oct 8

my new best at
Summit Point Main 1:32:19, S2 , midpipe, sway bars, 255/40/17 NT-01 all else stock

need to find more time in turns 3,5,9 and 10 which requires a bit more ***** and negative camber (I could only get -1.1 up front - driver side limited and stock suspension, caster is at 7 degrees)

Great driving. Looks like you're using all the grip of those hoosiers :-)
My mouth is hanging open watching the speeds at VIR.

... and over 1g braking. Obviously changing to real rear brake pads made a nice contribution too.

For sure- the brake advice i received from the folks on the forums has certainly helped shave time in the braking zones.

Just got back from Mid-Ohio, ran on club configuration with the chicane. Personal best was 1:55:20 in novice group. Could have done 1:53 if there was no traffic.
Progress Tech front and rear swaybars, full stiff setting
Stoptech slotted rotors with Hawk HP+
Stock size Michelin PSS
Megan Racing solid motor mounts

Looking good.

Am I hearing some ignition break up at high load/max speed conditions?

Hopefully not!!!

I thought it was maybe the sound of VDI reverberation between the two rotors?

I'm running the T-rex ignition kit... Maybe I should just buy some OEM ignition coils and wires and see if that does anything?

My last couple of dynoes have been weak on the top end (>7500 rpm)...
