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...

looking for springs 525lb 2.25 or 2.5 dia

Everyone, I am looking to do a spring test and was wondering if anyone might have 525lb springs sitting around in either 2.25" or 2.5" dia and 6" or 7" length. If you might have these that i can borrow for a test please let me know. Thanks

Here is one of my x runs, not as fast as my championship run due to a sway bar adjustment I was testing but still pretty good.

Re: August 20 TNT Request

If we do fet to have a test course set up may i recommend a slalom on one side with offsets on rhe other side with a coned sweeper connecting the two sections for up and back along the runway. This way we can actually get a much better test to cover multiple aspects of a course and not just one. Steve

Packwood Pro

So who is going to the Pro? I may be needing some help getting some tires up there. And I hear they are undersubscribed currently so let's all get registered before they cancel.
