Re: Kia Stinger GT AWD or RWD?

Ron,

If you do end up choosing a stinger or G70, I prefer the G70 by the way, let me know as I get a friends and family discount for Kia, Hyundai and Genesis cars so I may be able to save you some cash.

Re: Excellent course this weekend

As far as DNFs are concerned, In the 4th group there were several that happened in the first turn around at the exit chute. People would either drive around the outside of the chute or if they set up good and early they would actually go to the inside of the chute. There was also an occasional DNF b...

With the crossover design he was able to create a fast, fun and challenging turn around that had many different elements to it. The showcase turn showed two different choices for drivers either taking it tight and ti...

Re: 5 minutes between runs

For those of us that are newer to the sport and get to enjoy tires that are fast out of the box and don't need heat, The five minute rule I believe was initially created to prevent a competitor from having an unfair advantage by running back to back and thus having hotter tires as a result.

Re: Novice looking for the basics

We do have local sponsors that you should look into including FRSport, Miataroadster, Racing Lifestyles and Jaycom. I am sure there are others here and hopefully they chime in but these are fellow racers and enthusiasts that deserve our support.

January Pax results using 2017 Pax index

Hi everyone. I just noticed that the results were posted with the 2017 pax index instead of 2018. I did not do the math for if any classes may have changed position or not but I do know that the overall pax positions do change around a bit.

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

It is a shame that many people weren't around for or have forgotten the number of cars we used to run effectively in one day, courses were set up in the morning, and all this was completed without even using computers. Actually our nice computers that do such wonderful things for us also cost us qui...
