Hi David,

I see you're on the waitlist right now. But to directly answer your question, we typically have a school every year.

Hey Kurt,

Sorry...my "We'd be happy to have you" post was intended to be a formal invitation to instruct for us. I see you and Maddie are signed up now, so thanks for volunteering and we're looking forward to seeing you out there!

Hi Eric,

I checked with our SSS for the school and based on the Fasttrak approval, we're OK with you running your Bolt at the school.

See ya out there!

Re: Bolt EV co-driver position available for December

PS: I only see you signed up for Saturday practice day. There are no X-runs for the practice days. You'll typically get at least 12 runs (maybe a few more if we can squeeze them in for everybody). You won't have to give up any of your runs to get somebody to help you out. We a friendly bunch, and we...

Re: Poll: What is your preferred method of communication?

Facebook (social media) is effective for general announcements and "news" type of stuff, but not for mission critical announcements that need to reach everybody (i.e. gate changes, or specific communications for a specific event). So my "poll" answers are really dependent upon wh...

I am looking to attend, is there anyone in SGV that would be willing to "tech" my car so I can prepare it for the school? I will come to you on your schedule of course! :D To perhaps assist you with what we're specifically looking for: https://dk1xgl0d43mu1.cloudfront.net/user_files/scca/...

Re: Tire shop Orange County

I didn't know Action Automotive did tire mount/balance. Good to know for the future. I had them replace my leaky engine mounts once and was happy with the work they did. They also did some tricky electrical gremlin work on an old van conversion we used to have (other shops just balked at the van con...

Re: Tire shop Orange County

I've had good luck with America's Tire shops as well. Typically pretty friendly, and don't balk when I show up with tires that I didn't buy from them and just want them to mount/balance. I've used the store right off the 5 at Alicia (in the Target parking lot) many times.

Need a Kart worker for the Sept. 23, 2017 practice!

We're looking for one more person to work the Kart shift at the next practice. The work assignment is at 5:00 for one hour for the kids karts. The single shift covers your work assignment for the day. And our local kids seldom hit cones, so it's a pretty easy assignment.

Thanks Kurt. We'll be happy to have you. We were planning on reaching out to instructors at the next event (Sept), but if we have some of our instructors interested, please feel free to post here or reach out to me (or Jon Hartendorp or Leonard Cachola).

For those planning on running vehicles with time travel capabilities: Apparently the rules have DeLoreans classed in ASP, so you'll have to chase down the Berry family. Good luck with that! :thumbup:

Re: First time (again), passing tech in an older car

Hi Eric, You shouldn't have any problems with an older car that's in decent shape in tech. The most common problem that we run into in tech is a loose battery (the battery itself, not cables). We need that thing mounted in there securely. We don't want it rolling around and having those terminals ba...

OK guys, here's the new best way to get in (and still have your car clean!). We'll have the gate open at 6:00 am (or call me if anybody wants to get there earlier). If you go this way, you'll avoid the giant gravel trap that we've been driving through for the past few months. Note: the Astor entranc...

Re: New to Autocross and Racing

There are a couple of ways to go with the numbers. Since you probably purchased a temporary number, I wouldn't go out and spend any money on magnets or vinyl or whatever. Our rules specify numbers at least 8" tall and our class designation (i.e. AS, CST, whatever) at least 4" tall. A typic...
