Don't worry about people razzing you for your car, there's a lot of junk at autocrosses and everyone is just there to have fun. My first time out was in a first gen Dodge Neon with peeling paint and a leaking headgasket, so you'll be fine.

Truer words were never spoken.

There is/was a club called “Touge” that ran there. I went once, in the rain, and driving standards were abysmal. Also helmets optional unless you had a convertible.

Anyone here used Project MU RC09's? I checked my pads while doing some other stuff on the car and my carbotechs are pretty much done.

I've got a bit of annoying situation because my front caliper takes a wilwood dynalite 7112 pad and 94 mr2 rear, so my choices are a bit limited. I was also thinking about porterfield R4's

I may just go with the carbotech again because the local supplier is pretty good, but it would be nice to have a pad that didn't dust up as badly as the carbotechs do.

This is running on Toyo R888R's

I use RC09s on my MR2. I had XP8s before (a good pad) but the RC09s seem to put up with heat much better and have good bite. They dust pretty badly though and are noisy at low speeds, and will chew up rotors.

I've heard great things about G-Loc R8s. From what I understand they are very similar to the XP8 but are easier on rotors and less dusty and noisy.

RE71Rs are made of pure chetonium, they are basically a rcomp with a 200tw label stuck on it for class reasons. Yes, they are better. In a narrow range they are quicker than some of the 100TW tires.

Yeah. Mine were toast after 6 track days.

Typ 200 is good. I use Project Mu lines on my MR2 and I have no complaints.


I use RC09 pads from the same company. They are great but absolutely chew up rotors.

What’s the word on Direzza Star Spec Z3s?

How are they wearing? I love the RE71R but their lifespan is very short.

I had my alignment settings changed and it fixed my RE71R tire wear issues. I feel extremely stupid, yet relieved.

It might be “Touge” or one of its successors. I attended one of their events approximately one time and it contained the worst driving standards I’ve ever seen. It was wet so every driver was spinning off.

TMP is the closest track to me and I went there precisely once. The only time you would see me on that track is if I had the whole place to myself. And even then, I don't trust their emergency response.

CSCS and OTA run good events there if you don’t mind paying more.

That event was run directly by the track.

They have one guy who's the only marshal, group assigner, waiver checker, tech inspector, tow truck driver, fire fighter, drivers meeting conductor (hint - this never happens!) and apparently boxing referee. He also doesn't have the authority to kick someone out.

I've heard so many stories about the lapping days some orgs run in ontario. No marshals, no rescue, no helmets, no licensing, etc. I'm pretty happy about how we run things in NS, at least for our local orgs track days. Licensing and time with an instructor required. And we will not hesitate to black flag and sometimes end someone's day.

CSCS is much better now.
