Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

at least one can measure octane. I think you can only do that with a lab, correct? Is there any home garage use tool that can be reliably used to help drivers check if their own fuel is compliant? My chemistry knowledge is limited on this, so if there are any such tool recommendations, please share...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

Perhaps I'm being naive, but my *hope* is that all our competitors value the competitive spirit and developing their skills more than they value cheating. I know I hate the feeling when I lose, but greatly appreciate a hard-earned win. But the seb said there was no advantage to 100 octane, right? I...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

It's not an option. The fuel requirements are in 3.6, which is a required section of the national rules. We can't "supp regs" that out of existence if we want to operate SCCA events. Sure we can "Vehicle classifications (e.g., Section 3.2) are not mandatory" just call it stx-L f...

It's pretty simple, run whatever you want as we don't have the means to test it.

Re: Whoo Hoo! The PRO Solo is Here!

The extra $50 for Evo school is a bit much at the moment and I'm not sure how much of Friday I can attend. I was a bit hesitant to even do this at $130. Practice runs are $20 For 4 and are recommended. The hole shot school is a good value. Maybe find a friend to co drive and in return for a ride an...

Worker Preferences Tips and Tricks

For the March event I developed a process by which the work assignments can be assigned beforehand. This was done for a few reasons; 1) To ensure the people that were listed as not able to run for long periods were placed as best as possible. 2) To ensure that we have all the core positions covered ...

Some more data for everyone retrieved manually and mostly because people have "feelings" about how often we say "hold the start". Aside from the gap between run groups where we are only running 1 car at a time, which is being addressed there was... 1 gap of 1:30 2 gaps of 1:00 1 ...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Interesting stuff for sure. Just remember DNF's aren't always do to course design and newbies. I can tell you one of the DNF's in group 2 came from a certain CAM driver that had someone whispering in their ear Saturday to try and carry more speed through corners. That certain CAM driver may have fo...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Thanks for that, Anthony. Interesting numbers. Don't shoot me, but the next logical step would be to find what sections those DNFs came from. I'm only curious from an SSS point of view. The changes I made were first and foremost for worker safety. But I wouldn't mind plugging holes elsewhere just t...

Re: WTB: Tire Blankets

Bill Schenker found with his testing that using the 4' wrap, but around the entire car worked better than individual tires. However, for this to be legal and not-considered an active heating device you'll want to turn your car off before wrapping it.

They want to host a school in conjunction with tnia. They have asked for 4 helpers and 1 person who can work the timing addition to the trailer and cones. Helpers needed in the am and pm, timing just needed in the afternoon. Free afternoon runs for volunteers.
