Nice stuff, and good to hear about the dual drilled seat bracket. Please let me know if your butt position is any lower after installing those seats and mounts.
From what I have heard on 1st gen's it isn't lower, so I don't expect they will be lower. Judging from the brackets they will be the same. But I'll be sure to measure from the top of my head to the roof. My seats are all the way down currently and my helmet touches the roof so I may have to remove the sliders but I'll see about that later.Nice stuff, and good to hear about the dual drilled seat bracket.

You don't have to purposefully slow down when someone is passing you in a corner, but you also don't have to drive 10/10ths like big money is on the line. Sportsmanship is key. If you get some space, you can practice taking corners off line in various passing or being passed scenarios in order to get comfortable and understand the reduced cornering speed off line.Especially when I was told by Christina "You don't slow down for them, you stay on your line and make them pass you"... Yeah they don't mention that at all in 2 haha.
Giving point bys in turns was not my cup of tea at first. I would give but it was hard for me to trust the person when they would give me one. The first one I took we were side by side in turns 6-8 because I didn't want to push it too hard not knowing my limits much.
I need better brakes I did not feel confident at all with them. Inconsistent feel constantly after a few front straight hard braking was not fun. A few laps they'd be fine then they would go a lot farther down, I'd let up a bit then they'd be okay for a bit. I decided to just take it mostly easy on the brakes the whole weekend. The pedal wasn't spongy like they needed to be bled. I think it is just the pads. So brake ducts and new pads for Hyperfest I'm hoping (dtc 50s or 60s?). I'll just have to be careful with the pedal and street tires.
Indeed, the issue was more how the Porsche is supposed to let a person pass after pointing them by not pull on them. It's an HPDE not racing. Also, this is HPDE before getting a racing license so they should 100% know better to not be a dick.I can't see what happened exactly but nobody forced him to pass that Porsche going into a corner
So she did slow down enough but still pushed it a little much and didn't give in as she should have, imo. Like it is said in the classroom if you give a point-by you lift to help them get by not pull on the person. It's not racing. Just let them by and be on with your session. I even do it in my Mazda3 when I point-by. I let off unless it is a car with like 300+hp who doesn't need me to lift lol.Was he inside of you during the turn?
Did you get it fixed yet? Next time just let 'em go and pull into hot pit.
