    Do you think 2 500ml bottles are enough to change the fluid?

    If you play to track more than a couple times then I would go with an ebay 3 pack.

    nice! I'm really curious to see what a 2400lb E36 feels like.

    I got all my parts in except my brake fluid.

    I just need to find the time and my friends with time to help me swap the clutch and do the motor mounts. I'm hoping to have it ready for next friday.

    oversteer and a horrible angle on the last turn... then lifted which made things worse, then got back into it which brought the car around to face the wall, then hit the brakes to ensure he would hit it. Literally everything he did was wrong. He's a lucky guy to walk away since he only had a flat brim (pictured on ground) for protection. the guy working there told me that had cautioned this guy earlier after spin offs and generally horrible driving.

    The 'ole flat brim helmet. I'm still surprised that TMP doesn't require helmets.

    A decent understanding of physics makes me skeptical of how much better off you would be in bad track day crash with a helmet but without a HANS in a totally stock street car (no cage etc). All that extra weight of the helmet being violently shoved forward into an exploding airbag that was designed to impact your body/face not a helmet just seems like recipe for severe neck injury. Can't say for sure but if someone ran this kids crash through a sim and told me he was better off without the helmet I wouldn't be that surprised.

    Side impact, no curtain airbag, helmet wins.

    Open face is the way to go with airbags in my opinion, although I never practice it.

    I think more about the small things. For example, at Dunnville I was driving my brother's car and blasted the mirror off the passenger side. Window was down and mirror glass blew into the car. Simple helmet kept that from getting into our eyes.

    Agree on both, though I can't recall a bad side impacts at a lapping event. I'm sure they happen though. I went with an open face back when I was lapping\autocrossing. Partly for keeping cooler and partly because I didn't want to give the airbag a nice leverage point to spin my head if it popped.

    reality is cars are safer than they have ever been, yet a helmet it still more likely to help than hurt imho

    I have two helmets, open and full face. I worry that an air bag hitting a full face helmet could act as a lever if you're not looking straight for some reason.

    Does TMP have an exhaust decibel limit? I am looking to do take my motorcycle there but can't find anything on the website...

    Nevermind, found it. 103db at 5 meters away.

    I've never really seen them enforce this.

    The weather looks iffy for Friday.

    Edit: It looks like they've opened day lapping for Saturday and Monday 10am - 5pm. Both days look good weather-wise.

    I've never seen them enforce the exhaust, I saw that Speed Academy Suzuki Swift last year and it was ear splittingly loud even at the other end of the track..

    Monday might be good, tomorrow's weather looks like crap. I'm out.
