2012 Midwestern Counsel event schedule

Postby M20_fever » Wed Mar 28, 2012 5:45 pm

The season is fast approaching, so get those finishing touches done and come out and run with us!

HSAX schedule

Wheel to wheel schedule for those of you that love doing bodywork. :)

Registration for the spring drivers school is now open at http://myautoevents.com/pls/mae/frmMain.Show (you need to register then search Midwestern Counsel to see the events list). This is an evening of detailed classroom instruction (Sun) followed by a full day of one on one instruction (Sat) both on track and in the classroom. Each driver is assigned an instructor who rides along on day two, this is a huge resource. $195 for both days, quite a value for beginning drivers!

TMS are fresh out of J stock Bilstein Struts. That slows my plans. :evil: The car has too much straight line speed for the stock suspension on a track.
Maybe Koni have something that will manage the J stock springs.

Tms told me the same thing, after I placed my order I got the backorder notice. It only took them like 4 days to get mine shipped though. I assume they are ordering them as needed from bilstein.

Another option is to get some bilstein sports and send them to bilstein and get them revalved for the j stock rates. Its $65 per shock to get them valved. If you post a Wtb ad on the forums you can probably get some old bsports for cheap to send in.

The j stock bilsteins are a better design though, shortened up front and inverted in the rear.

What Tony said. Although I am sure if you talked to Koni they could set you up with some custom valved shocks that could handle the J-stock springs too.

Thanks Guys.
I bought a pair of unused inverted rears from a guy last year. I thought I'd buy a complete set for the warranty. Then keep the pair I have for spares.

As you wise ones have predicted, the dampers are supposed to arrive on the 16th.
I picked up a Sparco EVO 2 plus shell for the drivers seat.
The seat back is a little short I think. as the shoulder belt holes are low.
I'm sharing the car this year so the seat will be higher than necessary as My co driver likes to sit closer to the steering wheel than I prefer.
Next time...Recaro.

If I can find a good ZF 320(E36 328/M3) and a S52 PS pump in Ia Wi or Il.
Both are bad.
It's been a while since my membership with madison SSC expired. Does one have to be a member?

you don't have to be a member to come out and run, but you do need to be a member to be in the points race for any given class. What you need a PS pump for? Just delete the PS, I hate how these cars feel with PS hooked up.
