Re: JUNE 16th Starting line School, help needed.

I have that Friday off so I should be able to help out with setup if needed. I'm also available to help coach at the event!

Re: Greetings and questions from a newcomer.

All, Thanks for all the quick replies, such a supportive group. Trying my best to get approval for the Sunday event and definitely be there for Saturday as I see my name on the list. Not to over complicate the classification, I’v read the SCCA rule book and am unable to differentiate Street Touring...

Re: Greetings and questions from a newcomer.

Hi Randy, Just registered for the May 5 practice as I am unsure if I can make Sunday. Registration didn’t ask for the car classification, is it because it’s just practice ? Thanks. Yes, on a practice day we don't keep track of what you are driving. No need to worry about numbers or class lettering....

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

But the seb said there was no advantage to 100 octane, right? I think people just want more of a safety margin against knock in the summers. ^fake news. at no point has the SEB's claim been that 100 octane is of no advantage. the claim is that performance gained from using expensive race fuel repre...

Hello. I'm new to this forum and autocross. I pre-registered for the 14-15 Apr practice and Championship event, and I'm really looking forward to it. I had a question about what vehicle class I should have selected during registration. I will be driving a 2018 Camaro SS 1LE. On the '8 Easy Steps' p...

Re: X-ray wheels for damage

X-ray is probably not the right tool for that job. Unless the part is thin or the crack is large enough to extend all the way through the part, the x-ray is just going to pick up all the metal behind any cracks that may exist and show you a solid part. Even a Doctor can't see a fine crack in a bone...

Re: Whoo Hoo! The PRO Solo is Here!

The extra $50 for Evo school is a bit much at the moment and I'm not sure how much of Friday I can attend. I was a bit hesitant to even do this at $130. Practice runs are $20 For 4 and are recommended. The hole shot school is a good value. Maybe find a friend to co drive and in return for a ride an...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Rick, I see your point - and it's correct - but it's not in disagreement with Mike's point. His point was to emphasize to all drivers before their fun runs that if they've spun and ruined their run, they should be conscientious enough to proceed without taking out more cones. I have to agree with t...

So all the tire places I've used in central OC have gone by the wayside. Any recommendations for the HB/Newport/CM area? Seems most of the tire places change management as often as a runner changes socks. And it's never for the better. Rim & Tire Center in Garden Grove would do my rotations for...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

I'll add that course design has a lot to do with it, in addition to the other awareness issues already mentioned. This course was good in the sense that there seemed to be relatively few cone hits. The course was easy to "see" yet difficult to get "right". We could have accompli...
