Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Hi All, chiming in about the course design from the Feb. weekend. I was not there on Sunday to compare changes, but the Saturday course was well done in my opinion. Few drivers had the discipline to avoid the 2nd cone in that first slalom, but it paid dividends to those who did I think! :lol: I had ...

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

I ended up using a friend's Go Pro and suction mount on the T- TOP, worked great, except my passenger's head kept hitting it. The video was most instructive!

Bump; registered for Feb. 10 and most likely beyond. Think of it as a chance to get a few runs for free, and on someone else's tires! :lol:

Re: Why Get Your Start at Autocross Sunday?

Ok, that makes sense! I believe that will be my plan for the 11th; spend the morning in "instructor" lane, and persuade someone to ride with me in the afternoon. Meanwhile, I believe posting that where it is easily found will get you some more new people on Sundays.

Re: Why Get Your Start at Autocross Sunday?

Umm, does that mean the entirety of the original post is invalid, or that getting someone experienced to ride along is "fat chance, fat boy." I was told that being a noob passenger with a vet driving would be unlikely on Sundays. To my eyes Randy just posted something similar to George's o...

Re: Cordless Impact

I was you a few weeks ago. My research took me to the Bosch 18v 1/2 drive, but the Dewalt and Milwaukee offerings are nice too of course. I scored the driver on amazon for $113 and 2 batteries and charger for about $70 from ebay. The higher powered drivers will take you past $300. For about $16 you ...

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

Hi Ed,

that 2nd link, how do you attach that to your car.

Yes Eric, a tether could be made from zip ties and anchors cheaply and securely. Good idea!


Thanks!
