Yeah I saw that. Really happy to see people starting to swap the RS3 engines into these platforms. I love the I5 sound, and VR6 moreSomeone recently posted this. Golf R RS3 swap
Very nice times. Did you really drive from Vancouver, BC to Mexico?Headed out to HPA to do some baseline data today.
Never really played with launch control, and ever did a dragy run before. Did about three runs, with 12.24 being the fastest of the day.

I feel there's room for improvement on the launch and setup I have (could have deflated tires a bit, stiffened rear shocks, etc). If I weren't driving in mexico, and instead on a prepared surface I would probably shave even more time off.
Overall though pretty happy w/ the runs.
Fun fact too, the front brakes failed on me while trying to engage the launch control for the first run this morning. Brake pedal went to the ground while trying to activate launch control. Lifted foot and tried again, same thing. Looked at the front wheels and brake fluid was everywhere. Thank god this happened here and not while at the race track. We got it back to HPA immediately (but very slowly) and got the wheels off. The crush washers were leaking, passenger side pissing and driver's side starting to. So got them replaced and a free front brake flush before going back out. Top notch service and help from HPA!
How many sessions are on the PS4S? I have these tires and want to try an HPDE. I don’t think I’ll do those often but just curious if I did maybe 2 events a year how they would hold up. Mind you it would be my first time doing HPDE.Looking at a dedicated wheel and tire setup for next year's track season. Going to be springing for a set of forged wheels from Superspeed (https://www.super-speed.ca/forged-pf03rr) and a set of Hankook RS-4 Ventus to get started.
My PS4S are just getting wrecked and want to keep em usable as my daily tires in the summer. The track days are absolutely shredding the shoulders of the tire even with 2.5 degrees of front camber though I may bump up the front camber to 3 degrees next year as well.
I got 4 lapping days in last year and the wear was really eating away the tread on the shoulder. I tried a bunch of different tire pressures to mitigate it and I guess I am just out driving the capabilities of the tire at this stage trying to go for PB's. Time to upgrade. Though to be honest, I could have gotten many more out of these tires but I want to preserve the outside tread so I can still drive it in the wet in Vancouver.How many sessions are on the PS4S?
