Re: Course set up for 2-10/11

Justin: probably until 5 or sundown on Friday.

I can stay on Saturday to help with the changeover, but I can't take Friday afternoon off.

Re: tire sizing and load index (H Street)

Yup, looks like there's a good side I can use on them.
I'll be there both days if it's easier for you to split the transport, I will be with my Bolt and have plenty of carrying capacity :)

Re: tire sizing and load index (H Street)

Hey Max, $75 for the whole set? Wow, definitely worth the experiment and I'll be at Fontana both days this weekend. I've had 225/50s on the car before but there was some rub under hard braking while turning at the same time; the smaller diameter of the 45s should clear it and I've learned to be a sm...

Re: tire sizing and load index (H Street)

Thanks all for the responses. Most of my wear is coming from the shoulders so don't know if there's a way to solve that by putting better tires in a camber-challenged car. I've flipped one pair and will probably flip the other pair after this weekend. Will also try to drive more conservatively to ex...

tire sizing and load index (H Street)

It's looking like I'll need new tires in March and maybe I should pre-order a set in case I destroy them sooner. I'll also be doing some autocrosses outside of Cal Club in February. I'm still new at this and tend to over drive, so I don't think I'll be ready for expensive TW200 tires, yet. The popul...

Re: How to tell which group is running?

I've been tuning to 90.9 at the December and January events. I only remember seeing it posted during registration at the last El Toro event back in September, and my car at the time did not have an antenna.

Re: How to tell which group is running?

It's tough to hear the PA in most of the paddock area; so maybe setting up some boomboxes to 90.9 FM will help.
I can leave my windows down and radio blasting 90.9 FM when I'm working or wandering about; but it doesn't help when I'm running.

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

As a relative newbie, I wouldn't mind having 3 competition runs along with free fun/X runs immediately afterwards. And if I'm available, I'd buy X-runs in the afternoon, too. What I would really like to have is flexibility: sometimes I might only be available in the morning, and some days I might be...

Re: Cell/Smart Phone mount that does not make tech grumpy

I was looking into a Ram mount along with a secondary tether. I think the tether is important so it won't fall into the footwell and interfere with pedals in case the primary mount fails. (Or fly off the car and get run over if mounted externally). I don't think I'll bother with it myself; I'm still...

found a tire gauge and infrared thermometer?

I finished fun runs on Sunday and went to work course before I had a chance to move some of my stuff off grid. It's probably in the motorhome and I'll pick it them up in January. Tire gauge is from JACO, and the infrared thermometer is yellow and black (forgot the brand, uses a 9V battery).

Re: Bolt EV co-driver position available for December

Thanks Isaac! So I'm thinking I will stick on HS for a while in an effort to lure some of my friends out in their cars. So, I'll probably want 205/45R17 in the future for 6.5" wide wheels. Not sure, yet, and I think my current tires might last me some more events....

Re: Anyone else's solo2 notifications going to spam?

One thing I noticed is the A record for cscc.un1teee.com still resolves to 96.30.15.160; which doesn't appear to be responsive. Mail is coming from 64.91.246.41, which reverse DNS says is cscc.un1teee.com.

In other words, forward and reverse DNS don't match, and some spam filters do not like this.

Re: Bolt EV co-driver position available for December

Thanks to Stephen and Isaac for trying my car out! I know Tom wanted to try it, too, but I ran out of runs, but there's next weekend! Looking around pages 266-269 in the manual, I'm not sure if there's fuses I can pull to keep ESC off at higher speeds: https://my.chevrolet.com/content/dam/gmownercen...

Re: Bolt EV co-driver position available for December

Awesome! I'm glad to see the Fastrack got sorted out and will also register for the December event. Mine would actually be in one of the Street Touring classes, just not sure which, and I'm fine being in CST, even. I've posted about it on the classing thread: https://forums.solo2.com/viewtopic.php?f...

Re: Bolt EV co-driver position available for December

Just looked at the December Fastrack and there's no mention of the Bolt EV, or items #23165, or #22612 related to it; so I might have to drive another car this weekend at the school. Emailed Doug Gill and got a vacation autoresponder... I'm guessing the SEB ran out of time this month and many folks ...

I'm still a newbie and not completely sure how co-driving works; but I would love to share my car with somebody capable of going fast, curious about an EV, and can help both me and my car improve over multiple runs.
