Rick, I'm getting a "Connection was reset" error message on that. Is the link still supposed to be live?
Just clicked on it, works for me.

Re: New here, registered for Saturday Feb 9

As Mike mentioned, we have a great Novice program, however it is geared primarily for Sunday events (guided course walk, instructors available). Feel free to ask almost anyone for a ride along to get a look at how we do courses and a feel for it at speed. Most are more than willing to take passenger...

Re: Is There A Feb Event ??????????

All events we have contracts for are listed on MSR with basic info as a place holder, but are not opened for registration until we have all the details nailed down. I'm guessing you logged in last night while it was being updated to go live, which is why you didn't see it.

Possible rain Friday night into Saturday, may want to use the yellow crayons to mark key cones. There is a bunch in the RV on the shelf straight in front of you when you go in.

Re: Troubleshooting Help

Thanks to Mike Flanigan , who stopped by Monday morning with fresh eyes and some expert mechanic knowledge, he identified the issue pretty quickly as a throttle cable problem. I guess I dismissed it pretty early since the throttle return spring seemed strong and the less than ideal conditions when I...

Re: New Guy, 06 Mini Cooper S

If it's bone stock, it would be in DS (D Street), not DSP (D Street Prepared) which allows significant changes to the car. Can't help with much else, but I'm sure other folks more familiar with your car will chime in. Today was a race day, so most may not be home yet.

Re: Troubleshooting Help

the Idle Air Control(IAC) Valve. Maybe. Looked at the old one, appeared to be stuck partially open. Cleaned, but didn't really seem to make a difference. Jammed the inlet side with a paper towel to force it closed and plug it. Made a big difference, under 2k rpm instead of 6k. Got a new one, starte...

Re: Troubleshooting Help

I did a quick search and the two most common suspects were a vacuum leak and the Idle Air Control(IAC) Valve. I'd inspect all the hoses you can find and replace any that could even suggest a leak. If it still acts up, make sure to clean the throttle body and the Idle circuit before trying a new IAC...

Re: Troubleshooting Help

oh, that's bad Rick. But yes, It sounds like a vacuum leak. I am going out on a limb here to say this is a MAP sensor car because MAF cars don't do this. My Omnis, yes I owned more than one- didn't learn the first time..., each had this problem when they had a vacuum leak. Another possibility, but ...

Re: Troubleshooting Help

Yep, looks like a bad hose. Of course a unique shape, different size on each end. Working on a MickeyMouse fix till I can hopefully get the correct part.

I was going to say vacuum leak.

It sounds like just a white rectangle with a black number on it, not cut out magnetic numbers, right? I can do that. Just need to know what size and quantity and I can give you a quote. I know there is online places, too. And what about Jason Woodruff?
