Re: 2017 Novice School and Practice - November 25-26

I'm about to sign Maddie up for the school. I haven't heard back from anyone about me instructing. Are you guys all set for instructors? I really want someone else to instruct Maddie (she doesn't listen to me :lol: )

Sorry, I don't get to the forums very often anymore. They're yours, Nic. I can't make this event, but plan to come to the next one.

Free: Mini JCW springs for R56

Cleaning out the garage and since I no longer have a Mini, I no longer need the JCW springs I bought and had mounted. Anybody want them before I just toss them? They're OEM BMW parts, and as I said, they've been mounted once.

Re: Volunteers - April 2017

I would be interested in "shadowing" whoever does course so I'm better prepared for another time around. Or if there is just an information packet I can read over for future reference. Volunteer for course setup on Fri. once or twice. You'll learn a lot and you can pick the designer's bra...

Re: Pro Solo questions

I HIGHLY recommend doing the Evo Hole Shot. It basically runs you through what happens during the event (it's complicated and happens really quickly) and you get practice starts which basically makes it worth it right there.

Re: Wheel sizes in F Street

I started out with a G35 sedan. it was totally uncompetitive, but a lot of fun! Taught me a lot about throttle control. My advice, given my first experience, is spend year or so learning to drive what you're driving and don't spend an extra cent, other than tires. Then buy something that you can bui...

Re: Will we run in the rain 2/18 & 2/19?

Can you care to elaborate a bit more on that? Racing in the rain is statistically slower than in the dry, so doesn't it act as a handicap? Speed has less to do w/ it than the car control skills required at the limit. The rain is less forgiving to "sloppy" driving. It also helps that it's ...

Got an Open Seat?

I just found out my co-driver will be taking an extended break from autocross, so I figured I'd post and see if anyone has an open co-drive seat and find out which limbs I'd have to sell to afford it. Email is the best way to get ahold of me: kurtrahn at publicworksinc dot org.

You'll have the best seat in the house and lunch is furnished. No flagging experience is necessary, but if you h...
