So, we have a new class for cars 1975 and older, legal in California.
We as in Calclub? Not until it's in the supps as it's not a national class. Does our membership want these classes?

Re: Nationals run days question

Well, to me, if you asked it matters. I value your post and you wanting to reach out to your local membership as a member of the seb. Personally, I like things the way they are. I'm opposed to growing the event beyond what is currently handled. We are already the largest amateur motorsport event in ...

Re: Xtream Street (XS) Looks like....

The SCCA has a new sand box. Looks like the players have to bring cars that "Must be licensed and Insured". Oh, and "legal to drive on the roads". That means what in our reigon? Ok, I pasted the rules on my first post. The whole quote is "Must be an automobile or truck (e.g., pickup, SUV) manufactu...

Re: Testing E85

Thanks Marshall. Since the content test is water-absorption based, then I would think significant water contamination should show up in the test results. I assume driving the "clear space" at the top down. Which I'm not seeing. But I still can't explain why mine seems to test at E90. Most people co...

Google search came up with a 7500lbs tow rating which is pretty amazing for a comfy family hauler.
The weight of the GL helps a lot. The ML tows fine and I'm sure the added wheel base makes it even better. These are wonderful vehicles.

Re: Miata NC3 Engine Swaped NC1 legal in CS?

That's a no go on the engine swap to stay in CS. Why's that? Is the no go on any engine swap, or just swapping outside of technical car generation? NC1 and NC3 are both CS; it's still the same [NC] generation, CS class engine to CS class car. Except for modifications authorized below, Street Catego...

Hi all, Been a while since I registered for a SoCal event, a friend of mine and I are going to share my car for a Test and Tune day. Need to know if we have to split the runs or if we can each sign up as an individual and do a full 12 runs. Thank you! --Dan Your questions have been answered but I w...

I just want to know when we will see our first BSP Model 3. ASP* And with the recent OTA power increase of the Model 3, will the car get re-classed to AS? The car is now a sub 3 sec to 60 time.

This is why I feel grateful to be in SoCal, even our smallest lots are larger than this. Oh and we can autox all year round.

Indeed Reed. Only after I had trouble braking did I start to watch other cars on the course. It turns out, if your tires are not on the ground, they dont grip well.

So. It turns out that setting up didnt get much, within a tenth either way. What I made up for in speed, I sacrificed in adding 14 feet.
