Re: JDP Assessment Committee Named, now we can...

Anthony,

I think you are on the right path for beginners. Can you ask what is the issue for kids with years of experience running to the established rules?

Anthony,

I'm asking for a "in a car, with the kids" in the beginning situation. Having a two way conversation with them as they are on the course in the very beginning, opportunity.

Your description works in a more advanced application.

Re: Junior Karts running this weekend, are they?

Yes, I see that but the registration for the PRO opened up on 6/17/2020 and two participants did register for JA.

Junior Karts running this weekend, are they?

Each region is approved to run JA at their Solo events. To be approved for JB or JC a region must have recent experience running Formula Junior karts and must contact the National Office for approval (solo@scca.com).

Re: Old Results

John,

I would like to Thank You for your efforts on pulling the past into the future. I did run both events in Palm Springs, narrow events and lined with K-rale on the permitter. Yes, they did leave a lasting impression on at least one car.

I hope the results surface.

Maintenance and new parts, what have you done?

I anticipation of "a new day", tomorrow Samuel gets a new set of tires for his Kart. Now to be "fair", they are over a year old and no one has said anything about the cracks in the side walls. I also get to change the tires on the "Historic" 2 car, but they are less used up RE-71's. Kids first!

Re: Historic 1 Proposed Rules change.

The HIST1 engine swap can look like an early Bug Eye 948cc motor exchanged for the 1275cc of the later cars. The same is true if the Mini Coopers. The MGA is a 1500/1600 engine, that cam be swapped for the 1800 from the latter MGB. The larger displacement swaps could be moved to HIST2, if that works...

Re: Historic 1 Proposed Rules change.

Anthony, With the HIST1 cars, up to 1974, the update and backdate of motors is not a California smog registration issue. The swaps are not going to trigger an issue, it would be up to the competitors to arrive at a compromise. The HIST 2 cars in California, to be registered and smog legal have to pa...

Doug,

I am asking, for Historic2 that adjustable coil on threaded collars with adjustable camber plates "not" be included in the Street classes.

Not a STS starting point.

I will let the participants of HIST1 determine their own class.
