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...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

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...

Either way, I'm sure we can bring an even larger group of Solo guys out like we did last year. These events were a ton of fun and a great way to get some first time track experience.

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

I agree Neelu, not all the positions may be needed. But this last weekend you were dealing with only a few cars and I believe all experienced drivers. In December it's likely there will be many more since we are pulling from the entire pool of entries and it will be earlier in the day. So instead o...

I think we all can agree that Matt knocked it out of the park with his course this weekend. You had some great ideas and put a lot of work in to getting everything setup.

We'll all miss you when you move up to NorCal!

P.S. Let us know when you start designing courses at Crow's!

Re: Children under 12 riding in a car at an event.

I think part of it comes from size. A child under the age of 12 is probably too small to be considered a safe passenger in the eyes of the SCCA or whoever penned this rule.

Just some food for thought.
