2016 Fiesta ST AKA Charmin PAX machine

Hey everybody, The time has come for me to finally stop driving the easy PAX machine and move on to a new challenge. My current plan is to drive the car at the next Cal Club event and the Fontana Pro before getting real serious about selling it. However, I'd like to offer it up to our community for ...

Re: Tentative COVID-19 Guidelines Starting June 20th

"Events are closed to spectators. This includes your family members and friends that may want to come down and watch or support. Only registered entrants are allowed into the event." That statement is in direct conflict with the promise made by SCCA President Mike Cobb on the JDP Townhall that juni...

Re: Next event?

Just confirmed that the May 23-24 event at TH did occur without any issues. So if we can ever find a venue..... ACS has contacted us with an updated request for our COVID response plan. Over the weekend I drafted up a new document using the San Diego Region's plan as a template. Hopefully we can ge...

Re: Next event?

Not a bad idea Bill. At this point Buttonwillow in the summer may still attract enough people.

We could also look at renting out the skid/drift pad at Willow Springs as well. It's gonna be hot everywhere but I'm sure we can get some people to still come out.

Re: First time with Cal Club Autocross: April Test N Tune

Awesome! Thank you for the kind and complete response. I may do the competition runs alone and then see how things go The big upside to doing the Saturday Practice event is that you will have the opportunity to ride in other people's cars which can go a long way in terms of improving your own drivi...

Re: Extreme street, should it replace CST?

I'm definitely leaning towards using the XS classes and running one indexed class of XS-A and XS-B together. How much does your car weigh Jacob? I think your setup is literally the perfect example of why XS class exists. A sweet ride, not built exclusively for solo, but for the owners enjoyment at ...

Re: Historic 1 Proposed Rules change.

With so many options, I wonder if bringing in more participants first would help shape the class. As Sean mentioned on the call, we have in the past, broken out an individual class from an index class once there is sufficient participation. Once people are racing heads up, the pax thing becomes a n...

Re: Historic 1 Proposed Rules change.

I'll re-word here what I tried to explain on the call last night. The PAX for the Historic classes (all of them) should not be tailored to make them competitive with the official PAX classes given to us by the SCCA. The PAX is calculated yearly to make competition "fair" for drivers who build cars t...

Re: Historic 1 Proposed Rules change.

This seems to have gotten way too complicated for a local class. Looks like Doug's #5 option makes the most sense to me. Keep HIST1 & 2 as is with the addition of cars in Brian's post. If someone want's to run a non-SCCA classed car, use CST or CSM (actually has always been available on MSR, the li...

Re: 2/8/20 SCCA Video

I prefer the video on the side even if it's 'lopsided' because you get a true picture of how close you are to the cones. The in car view is misleading - it's hard to tell if you are actually close to key apex cones. The line has limited benefit if you are missing your marks. Stephen, I understand y...

Re: new electric class?

EV-x is listed as an exhibition class for now in the Pro Solo index. I think the intent will be for EV-x to be the "mod" class for EV's.

You'll still need to find a way to mount a lightning rod to your Bolt if you want it to be competitive :lol:

Re: Extreme street, should it replace CST?

A survey will be sent out to CST competitors first. It seems like it comes down to two questions. 1) Do you want XA XB to replace CST? 2) Do you want them combined on index or separate? Also, does anyone know of any cars prepared in excess of those rules that currently competes in CST? Supps change...

Supplemental classes are not in contention for a jacket and make more sense for a single day event if we had to go that route.

Re: Miata NC3 Engine Swaped NC1 legal in CS?

The reason behind that (as I understand it) was to avoid people making Franken-stock cars that took the best bits of different model years. For example, an S2000 with the 2nd-gen engine (more displacement = more torques) plus the 1st-gen transmission (~6-7+ mph faster 2nd gear) would be an absolute ...
