FS: Dark Matter

The time has come to close this chapter. I still need this car probably through January, but the decision to sell it is final and details can be worked out. I'm putting some feelers out there now so people can plan their 2018 season. I hope I can send this to a good home where someone will put it to...

Great job Reed!

Just taking a little time to say thank you to Reed Gibson for a fantastic course this weekend, as well as to everyone who helped tweak it in! In my humble opinion, It was absolutely the best course that we've had since Irvine squeezed us down to a bandaid sized area. With very little to work with, R...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

This idea has been tossed around for at least the last 15 years, around the time of the Great CalClub Message Board Wars of 2002 and a few years before I was vice-chair in 2006-2007, partially as a way to prevent the cliquishness and tribalism. I've always liked it. One advantage that has always ap...

I can help Friday... If I could do that for a Sunday exemption, that'd be great, as I'm not planning to be at the practice. Thanks.

Just got the word that the lot will be booked on Friday, so we will have limited time Friday evening and Saturday morning to set up. I'm planning to be there at 5pm to start setting up as soon as the lot clears. Just keeping everyone in the loop not to get there too early. This isn't ideal, but we'v...

Re: Setup questions- new to Street class

Well, since Marshall seems to be busy, I'll chime in. I certainly don't know Corvettes like he does, but I'm guessing he'll say something along the lines of as much camber as you can get, zero toe front, and as much toe-in as you can stand in the rear.

Re: 10-22-16 Course Setup Volunteer Appreciation!!!

Clarification needed. While I was there helping set up on Saturday morning, it was actually Eric Forbes who blew the course off after noticing...umm, 'debris' up on the top side. :D Everyone thanks you, Eric!
Pete, excellent, fun courses both days! Enjoyed the hell out of the weekend.
