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

Per the 2016 HCS guide line: Wheel and Tire Allowances • Any metallic wheels are allowed. • Any DOT‐approved tires with a UTQG Treadwear Grade of 200 or higher are permitted. Tires must also meet other requirements in Section 13.3 of the Solo rules. I understand the +,- 1" of: 13.4 WHEELS Any ...

Re: 2018 Points Card....Apply Now...

Idea: make the next years (aka 2019 this year's) points card available for sale once there are not enough events left to complete a current year (2018) points card... and throwing in the remainder of the 2018 season?

Re: Course Setup for September 29-30

A favor, please cull out any really bad cones you come across while you are setting up. Need to reduce the amount of cones in the motor home. Thanks. How many are we trying to get rid of? Maybe I can help remove really bad cones & donate some marginal cones for local FSAE practice? :) At least ...

And a number of those viewers are likely board members like me, so it's covered. That being said, we are at the mercy of the lots we rent and don't always have as many choices as we would like.

Re: 5 minutes between runs

I think it boils down to driver and grid person responsibility. Without looking it up, I assume the 5 minute rule is not a required part for local events. The grid person needs to be flexible to send another car/line if necessary to keep event flow going. Drivers need to let the grid person know in ...

Re: Solo Nats Tire Transport

Keep an eye out for a transporter thread, I assume there will be one this year as usual. That's often a good way to do it by putting your tires into one of the cars on the transporter, which usually arrives for the Pro and leaves after Friday.

Actually you can choose "none" for your first year, but I expect you may be courted by a couple of clubs. I'd pit them against each other to get the best benefits. ;)
