Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

This idea has been tossed around for at least the last 15 years, around the time of the Great CalClub Message Board Wars of 2002 and a few years before I was vice-chair in 2006-2007, partially as a way to prevent the cliquishness and tribalism. I've always liked it. One advantage that has always app...

Robert, Mike, and Will are very experienced and can help with how we have been separating grid, spacing the karts, and the latest high points in tech. The robotics team I mentor jus...

Re: Setup questions- new to Street class

I have a 2004 C5 Z06 FRC 6-speed for sale.

Ping me if you decide to go that route. It's not been autocrossed, raced, or abused. It belonged to a family member who passed away.

Re: SCNAX CUP XI 2016: Eleven times the Cone-liciousness

If an adult runs a JA kart, can they be paxed as JA and not KM for SCNAX cup?

Does Team Unnamed want a JA kart teammate? (You'll probably have to be somewhere between 5'9" and 6' to fit the kart)

For Sale: 2004 Corvette Z06 FRC (Hardtop Coupe)

My father-in-law passed away a few months ago and I'm helping to sell his Corvette. It's silver, completely stock and in good condition. If interested, leave me a PM here or catch me at an event. I can drive it to a local event if someone is interested in checking it out. 49,000 miles. We're looking...

Yeah, it took me all three runs to beat my kids in our "spare" JA kart for the first time! (Which is now what Dane will be driving since he slightly outweighs me and is only 3" shorter now!) These things make *Miatas* look like overpowered ill-handling cars! 13435290_10209948184240205...

If you think those kids are out there just wheeling a cute little kart around the track for funzies, guess again! I brought out the kids' previous kart (we just upgraded) and ran it in "KM" in complete JA spec. I'm at a weight and equipment disadvantage, but I figured I may be able to appl...

Re: Regular/Time only/X runs

When we were at ~300 entries, we were running eight groups which really helped worker changes since nobody was in a situation where they were working/running immediately after running/working and could show up to work before the prior group finished.

Re: New Street tires detrimental to the sport?

If you want to reduce the cost of autocrossing, find out what class a used Miata dominates (there's always at least one), buy the car, and go for it. There's a cheap avenue, even if you didn't choose it by buying a Mustang, which isn't anyone else's doing. Heck, you could have bought a National Cham...

Re: New Street tires detrimental to the sport?

I can make it louder or experiment with sway bars and that's it. However, tires which constitute a major expense, are completely open. You forgot shocks. You can add several thousand dollars worth of custom-valved shocks. And spend a thousand or more getting them re-valved to optimize them. And lot...
