Re: Running windows7 on a MacBook

I find it amusing that ever since the Mac was released, PC users have always put down Mac users and their machines, whereas Mac users have been much more tolerant of PC users and their machines. I guess if one can't come up with a logical, well-thought-out argument for one's point of view, then use ...

Re: My First Autocross Event

This is only my opinion, take it for what you paid for it. Car control lessons learned at autocross speeds will serve you better throughout your life than lessons learned at track speeds. What I learned back in the 70s has served me well (and saved my bacon on more than one occasion :shock:) over th...

This Is GREAT!!

<tongue in cheek> Under Prez (a foregone conclusion) Obama's new policies on "redistribution of wealth", all points earned in any SCCA classes will be redistributed to all entrants, thereby ensuring a fair and equitable event. :wink: Those points you just ( thought you) earned by setting up your car...

Re: Random Thoughts

So let me see if I got this straight: A candidate's religious beliefs don't matter if you're supporting him (Obama) but they do matter if you're not supporting him/her (Romney and/or Palin). I guess that's what makes our country, our country. :thumbup: You guys crack me up! :lol: (before you plop yo...

Miller Motorsports Park (Tooele, Utah)
Sorry Gio, but the track was not designed to the standards required for F1. That was specifically brought up in the public meetings prior to the track being built.

Re: Condolences, Renee.

Renee- My wife and I send our most sincere condolences to you. We knew Craig back in the early to later 70's and he was a real character even back then. We met him when he was a member of PSCC (gasp!!) in about 1971 or so. PSCC once held a club-only event at El Mirage Dry Lake and we laid out a cour...

Re: Is Formula V Tire Restorer Solo Legal?

I'm not aware of anywhere in the rule book where it specifically mentions this as being allowed, so I do think it falls under, if it doesn't say you can, you can't. Jason, I'm not picking on you, so don't get all defensive. It's just that you happened to be the one who mentioned the "if it doesn't ...

Re: Course Finish Standard

I'm sure this reply will be summarily dismissed because I'm an "outsider", but here goes: My experience has been that if drivers are given any "room" past the finish, many of them will stay on the gas way past the finish and will either lock 'em up or be close to it when they do finally have to turn...
