Re: Solo $

I guess they don't expire, but do we get interest on the five years our $20 been sitting? :)

Re: NTB, E36 ECU

If it got wet during a car wash or rain it can be saved by opening up the case and gently cleaning it with WD40. If it can't be saved I think I have a couple but would need to search thru some boxes to find them.

Re: SCCA road racing - F-production Miata 1.6L

This is an incredibly well prepared car for anyone considering going w2w .

The Production category is also well attended with a really stable rule set.

Re: Relocation info?

Palmdale and Victorville are close to an hour apart.....
I would pick neither but Hesperia and Apple Valley would both be a bit better, close to Victorville but an hour from Palmdale

Re: Track Night!

Toby, no race car is kinda fluid... Like CSM. Headlights, wipers, muffler, gutted interior, cage, we'll take it. The idea is to keep it novice friendly/not scary. Bring Bev and the Blue car!

Well, I can sort of help you. I have a non Vanos 4-door 92 325i with a blown headgasket you can have for free. It's a parts car so some stuff is missing but if you're up for it you can take your Vanos head and put on this bottom end. Did I mention it's free ;)

Selling my Toyota Celica as a roller. This car was built by TMS as 1 of 20 for the Long Beach Pro-Celebrity Race, it has a SCCA log book and could be turned back to a SCCA or NASA w2w car.

Re: 2001 BMW 525i wagon- should I buy it?

Richard is spot on and I would add cam sensors (intake and exhaust) fail frequently and so does the many plastic and rubber hoses/connectors under the intake manifold. None of that renders the car inoperable but will throw a CEL. An OBD2 scanner will be your best friend, otherwise good cars.

Probably not, ITE is a catch all class so there's a big spread in performance. A well prepped and driven Spec Miata will do fine in ITE

This is what I'm converting to on the A mod. Toby used the system as well. Yes, I have that same ECU and harness, I'm using coils from a Toyota 1ZZ instead of those coils. Good system that's easy to install and work with, the can bus works great running an aftermarket dash. The only thing missing i...

I've been very happy with the BFG's in both R1 and R1-S, similar grip to a Hoosier R or A but lasts much longer. The RA1 will be slower but will last even longer, a good alternative would be the Nitto NT01 wich is in between the Toyo RA1 and 888. CalClub will run a two day TT in conjunction with the...
