Re: Ok,I'll ask. What, if any details are there about...

Please think of the Aug 3/4 event as a "Foot in the Door" event, that is helping us quickly establish precedent with the site for more future (scheduled well in advance) events there. Yep, we would be foolish to let the opportunity pass us by after we have been patiently waiting to get the track's ...

As soon as docs are signed all will be revealed. Google maps Santa Anita and you can see which lot has been used for autocross before. While this is short notice, this is the date they offered and we are eager to establish a relationship. Rick is correct. We are moving quickly here so we can start ...

Re: Which tires to get? BFG or Bridgestone

Whatever tires I get will be mounted on 19x11 wheels. I'll be getting them in 305/30/19. I'm seriously considering the BFG because I have heard they take heat better. Although I read yesterday that Goodyear will be producing the Supercar 3 in a bunch of new sizes. They will have a 305/30/19 also. I...

Re: New comer

Hi Obed, To start, I would browse through the SCCA Solo rule book to get an idea of where your car should be classed (link here https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules ) Just from looking at your mod list though, your best bet is to just run our CST (California Street Tire) class. This class ...

Please help class my Mercedes-Benz 2008 CL-550. It is stock with a 5.5l v8.
I believe your car falls in to FS as it's a V8 Sedan that is not otherwise classed (NOC) per the 2018 solo rulebook.

I wanted to buy this aero panel for my 2007 Miata: link . It's not like it's a wing or other big aero modification. Is it considered illegal in stock class? I'm running in CS. The general rule of thumb for SCCA classing is if the rulebook doesn't explicitly allow it ... it's illegal. That being sai...

Re: How a course takes shape

Well done Anthony. I assume you design for Sunday, then make adjustments to make it work for Saturday. Most of us will start with an idea for Sunday in mind and then will re-tool the start/finish sectors. If your design has good flow, then it should work well enough in reverse with simple visual ch...

Autoclub is basically all straights, just run in Advanced! That way you only have 7 people to let by ;)
