Re: Recommendations for tire shop in Mid-City LA?

Wow Reed that's a great deal. I found a used tire place near me (West Adams) earlier in the week and got it for $100/cash (19s but not sure if the size really mattered)...but $50 would be even better lol. At least the trend line is in the right direction.

Thanks for the suggestions all.

Recommendations for tire shop in Mid-City LA?

Anyone have recommendations for a tire shop? I've used Davis Brothers in Culver City as they're close to me but they charge $35/wheel to flip and balance (so $140 for the full set)--wondering if anyone knows of someplace else that will flip my RE-71s for less and still do a decent job?

Cheers.

Re: November 10-11 Practice & Event

The Tesla that edged me out in DS got a nice writeup here. At least I can know I was beaten by the "best" version of the 3 lol. https://www.automobilemag.com/news/tesla-model-3-track-mode-meets-the-autocross-course/ Thanks to everyone involved in putting on the event, course setup/teardown etc. Real...

Re: April 2018 Practice & Autocross

I registered for the practice, hope it works out to snag a spot. First time out in a *long* time but eager to try out my new car. :D

Re: SOLD FS: CS/SK2 Mazda MX-5 MS-R (Burbank)

Thanks for the well wishing and good comments. The car got sold to a racer (guy up in Utah) so it might still turn up at some Divisional events.

Hoping to catch you guys again at some point (maybe I can buy my way in on a codrive or two.)

Re: I guess this is goodbye...

I think the PR take on this is a good one. There was a long history of Subarus in my family growing up (New England/Mid-Atlantic) and I've often thought about a WRX as a daily driver...this is the sort of thing that makes me think about other marquees (and sigh that both Honda and Subaru appear to b...

Re: Slo Mo Video link - eBoard Practice ...

Thanks Mako! Watching the video of myself is depressing compared to the good drivers...but it certainly shows me where I could stand some serious improvement! :D (Getting within three feet of the cones would be a good start...sheesh :mrgreen:)

Re: Aug. 8th 2X Practice ... Excellent Event !

Agreed, it was great! Thanks to all involved for putting it up and ensuring that some of who haven't gotten into many other practices had another opportunity to work on our driving. :)

I especially loved the difference in style between the two courses.

Re: If you weld, read this

Huh, thanks for the link...I think I might have exposed myself to this accidentally a few years back welding on an old Chevy Truck in my garage. Appreciate the heads up.

Check is in the mail! Can't wait to get back to El Toro...my Direzzas really like that surface! The first time I ran at Fontana (After my first two events at El Toro) I thought something was broken on my car... :)

Just registered...I'm excited, it will be my first event actually driving as opposed to spectating (just bought a Miata and am eager to see what it can do.)

Re: Jan 24-25 Practice Event Thread

Hi everyone...I showed up yesterday and rode along for several laps in Ken Lord's Miata and two different S2000's (I'm in the market...) Anyway it was my first autocross event and I just wanted to say it was great...everyone was really friendly and welcoming to a newbie. :-) I'll be back once I can ...
