Re: WTB: 4x100 Wheels

Hey all, My buddies and I are building a ChumpCar, 1985 VW Jetta, I know I know, German, lack of, fury. We mostly like building things.

Re: July 18-19 Course Setup/Changeover

Even though sunrise is at 5:55, you could probably start earlier (assuming they let us in earlier). Unless you know something I don't (and you probably do), on those occasions when I arrived early due to Chief duties, they would not open the gate prior to 6:00 a.m. Maybe a couple minutes early but ...

Re: Drones at events

Technically they aren't really drones. The term drone comes from the press for not knowing what they are talking about. A drone was a simple stupid term for aerial practice shooting. Basically the drone would be launched on a straight flight path, then destroyed by a manned fighter or SAM sight. Th...

Re: Drones at events

In a way, drones, UAs, etc. are in our future (present). Having said that, and fully realizing that Mike is just the messenger, this is clearly a safety issue. The SCCA should not be simply kicking the can down the road toward the FAA. It clearly is NOT the FAA's jurisdiction. But I agree with KJ, i...
