Re: INSTRUCTORS NEEDED - PCA Autocross October 27

I am signed up and looking forward to the event. If anyone has questions on helping as an instructor, send me a PM and I will give you a call.

Re: Heritage Classic Street ,on a local note.

Robert,

The rears on the E21 are the "coil over", the fronts are a MacPherason strut. They returned to a separate rear spring after this car.

Re: Heritage Classic Street ,on a local note.

Suspension and Steering Allowances • Alternate springs are allowed, but must be of the same type as OE and attach at original locations. It's not that I might spend "lots" of time thinking that this means that coil overs with adjustable spring perches are not legal in "Heritage Classic Street", HCS ...

Re: Heritage Classic Street ,on a local note.

That was a fun weekend and a relearning curve. The first half of Saturday went well, the afternoon started off with hard starting and the car lost it's edge. Sunday morning it would not hold an idle.

Heritage Classic Street ,on a local note.

Having proved that a locally prepared NA Miata is lots of fun, but the ship has sailed and I will leave the E Street class to those in the newer cars. So, for the time being I have the 1982 BMW 320 up and running. The car is smog legal, with current tags. The question will come up, why not FSP? The ...

Tony,

Will this event be "kid" friendly? Having access for the "FJ" karts will give the family's the ability to increase the car count and get seat time before Crows.

Re: Heritage Classic Street(HCS) Rim size, what's legal?

So a rim wider than " same width as standard and as installed" would move the car to:

Heritage Class Race(HCR)

Wheel and Tire Allowances
• All DOT approved tires and race tires (non-DOT) are allowed.
• Wheel width is limited to a maximum of 8”.
