Re: Proposed CST pax modifier adjustment

Edited yet again! The .882 index for CSM in our Supp Regs was from 2016's PAX for SSM. 98% of that is .864 so I understand the Supp Regs values and acknowledge they're incorrect. The 2018 PAX value for SSM is .871, so our Supp Regs and timing should reflect that as the CSM index, and 98% of that is...

Rick Brown to the white courtesy phone! Rick Brown... The reality is it's not really an issue, rarely happens and just a matter of noticing where the sun is and which way the light is aimed. If there is a potential issue, we simply swap the sensors at lunch time. We just forget sometimes. Or there'...

Re: Free trailer(s)

Matt has about 200 "Beat up" cones from us, a cooler or two and something else I can't recall. (I say "beat up" because they're pretty heavily scarred, but WAY better than what the RallyX people are using right now.) What's more interesting is WE have about 200-250 nearly new co...

I have takers for both trailers, so I'll be on site tomorrow to break them open and discard the contents. Ken Motonishi has graciously allowed us to use AMCI's dumpster for the disposal, so we don't have to order a dumpster to be delivered. If anyone is interested in helping, please let me know. My...

Re: PSCC/Morgan Plus 4 Event

On top of that, thank you Brian for being the Event Chair. I think we isolated the timing problems to a new condition. It was either low batteries in the finish lights or a bad angle for the receiving unit toward the sun, but once both of those were corrected the remaining runs were flawlessly time...

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.
