Re: 6/20/20 Back At It Event !!!!

wow, a 3rd gear course! I want one of those for the Camaro. Okay, it'd likely be 4 or 5th for most everyone else, lol.

Too bad we couldn't have done it today. It's a bit breezy and 68* up here. I actually put a jacket on to work outside.

Re: Maintenance and new parts, what have you done?

I/ve never changed a kart tire, but I'd rather do than than to glue up 1/10th scale touring car slicks. We had a guy glue his hands and one wheel together.

Re: New SSC Tire Approved

Does anyone have any contact with people at Falken? I tried to email them thru their website but it failed to go thru. I'm wondering about an ETA on their 305/30 and 315/30 19 tires.

Re: Postponed: march 7 Trackcross at Buttonwillow gokart track

I can do Equipment and Tech, or at least assist with Tech. I usually tow my car to Fontana and can tow to Buttonwillow or drive there. My house is safe for storage of the equipment as the closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away and I'm on a 3 acre fenced in lot with noisy dogs(but I'd be more afraid of th...

Re: Lightweight wheels

I have too many sets of wheels for the Camaro already...don't know why, I just like having extra wheels around. I have two sets of Apex wheels, EC-7 in 19x10.5 ET22 and they weigh in at 24lbs, a set of ARC-8 in 19x11 ET11(24.5lbs) and ET43(21.8lbs). Also have a set of Project 6GR wheels in the facto...

The car is now a sub 3 sec to 60 time. Who would be responsible to making sure a car isn't running beta firmware that is not made a...

Re: 2020 PAX factors released

Come to think about it someone should convince the SCCA mothership to build a spec class for the Tesla. The shocks and tires would be the key. I know a shock manufacture that would like to help. And that would go out the window when the adaptive suspension comes out. When I left, I had done RLDA on...

Re: Tire pumps tested. Harbor freight is a winner

I wonder how my factory air pump would stack up? Since I didn't get a spare with my Camaro, I got a can of tire sealant and an air compressor.

Re: Which tires to get? BFG or Bridgestone

Whatever tires I get will be mounted on 19x11 wheels. I'll be getting them in 305/30/19. I'm seriously considering the BFG because I have heard they take heat better. Although I read yesterday that Goodyear will be producing the Supercar 3 in a bunch of new sizes. They will have a 305/30/19 also. I ...

Which tires to get? BFG or Bridgestone

I was going to get Bridgestone RE71R tires for my car but BFG has recently released a Rival S 1.5 in 305/30/19. I know Paul Molina has been testing them against the RE71 on his mustang. I'm waiting a little to see some of his results but I thought I'd ask others too. The price difference is about $1...

Re: Anyone have E-Track experience for load tiedown?

I've used it before but wasn't sure if there were different rated tracks depending on use. I found some stull on Amazon with a 6000lb load rating, so I'll use that.

Anyone have E-Track experience for load tiedown?

Who here has had experience with using E-Track to tie a car down to a trailer? I'd like to add E-Track to my trailer to tie the Camaro down but I have no experience with this system. Is all E-track rated the same or is there different track for use in vehicle tie down?
