    Thought I'd post this here in case anyone was interested. Was dead set on the Aim Solo 2 DL, but this is a pretty solid deal! Anyone have experience with these?

    Austins w/ APR BBK

    Hi all. I just emailed APR who confirmed their 6-Piston BBK w 350x34 Rotors will not fit inside the stock Austins that I use as a winter setup. Anyone have any experience with fitting the Austins with a BBK using spacers? Would like to avoid (if possible) buying an entire replacement winter...

    "Official" Lap Times Thread

    Hi all. Stole this idea from but figured it would be great to have a thread to centralize lap times for the track junkies on this forum. (I want to know just how slow I am). Track name: Track location: Lap time: Year/model: Estimated total vehicle weight with driver: Estimated wheel...

    Driving at (and over) the Limit

    Trying to put my off into the wall yesterday into perspective and was rereading some Ross Bentley that made me feel a bit better about it. After all, it’s a learning process and to develop your driving skills at the limit, you need to sometimes driver over that limit. Yesterday was a wake up...

    Search for RWD Track/Weekend Car (70k Budget)

    Thinking about trading in the GTI next year or the year after, for something new. Looking for a RWD that is track ready, fun to drive, comes in a manual, and is below 70k. Considering the MX-5 Club RF, Shelby GT350, and the M2 Competition. What else should I look at?

    Thompson Motorsport Park (CT)

    Thought I'd start a thread to share notes on Thompson Motorsports Park. It is one of the closest tracks to the Boston area (~1 hr drive for me) and hosts a lot events. Have driven the 1.7 mile road course during two separate HPDEs so far and it is technical with 11 turns and a fast straight...

    Evo Performance Driving School

    Anyone have any experience with Evo performance driving school? I spectated the NER autoX event last weekend in Ayer, MA and several people mentioned it would be a good way for someone new to get as much course time as possible in a single day. I'm signed up for the July 15th Phase One course...

    GTI Sightings

    Saw a modded MK7 on the corner of State and Congress in downtown Boston last night around 9:00pm. Sounded like stage 2 with pops and bangs. Lots of stickers and vinyl. Should've taken a picture of the rear plate but forgot. I think it was DZEEEE but don't rember. Here's a photo from the side...

    Integrated Engineering Software Tune

    Thought I'd share, I reached out to IE today about the timetable for their MQB software development. Sounds like they are a few months away from offering a tune for the MK7 GTI to go along with their DP and IC. Curious to see how it compares to APR (as I currently use their stage 1 93 oct tune)...
