Re: Set of 4 Audi Ronal Wheels 15"

are they 7 inch wide They look like factory Ronal 16 Spoke 14X6 to me. They came in two different offsets in the 14X6 version. AWD versions are 4x108 and 2WD are 4x100. About 15.5lbs each as I recall. They made a 15" version in 4x100 but they are worth about $600.00-800.00 a set and are very rare. ...

Re: Points Card Squatting

There is something that they do in Chicago region that I think is really kewl. For the numbers 1-20............. If you want to have special markings for the top drivers we could use alphanumeric characters. It works better for top 5 or 9... A1, A2, A3, A4, A5..... A, B, C, D, E, F.... 01, 02, 03, ...

Re: Points Card Squatting

............. the thought of eventually getting their favorite number can possibly be a good motivator for participation and involvement. One point I would like to make is, "You can't expect to get your favorite number. It may happen but your favorite number could be 7, as an example, and that numb...

Re: Points Card Squatting

..... Many people have numbers than have some particular significance and would probably prefer to keep it. I think it would be difficult to change numbers for many people using lifetime points or PAX results. Many groups/co-drivers have numbers with significance like ["5" and "55"] or ["72" and "1...

Re: Thank You John Fendel!

Thanks Gorge for the nice words about John. I was lucky to pit next to John last weekend and in the rush to make the first run group I forgot to wish John good luck in the event. Thanks John for all the great maps, bringing out your beautiful Mustang and making our sport better. And good luck at the...

@ Steve and some of the others, I am glad I could provide you with some entertainment. I know I will not be successful at changing your decision. For clarity I looked up the SCCA National rules on the passenger topic and number of runs. Some of the folks may not understand what I consider to be the ...

Re: Passengers at Champ events

Thanks for adding. At one event a few years ago I took 2 regular Sunday runs and DNFed my third so I could give a CS Fullerton news paper person a ride (not that my car is all that great). The lap was not that much slower but I took the DNF to help someone out and help introduce the sport to more pe...

Re: Passengers at Champ events

The club will do what they want in the name of fun. At some point we will all no longer be racing solo on Sunday. It becomes more of a TEAM race with instruction on the first runs and then the driver in the car gets to work it out on the last two runs. With this proposed rule change the game can ch...

Re: Passengers at Champ events

Well, as starter for heat 1 yesterday, I can tell you that rule was probably not being observed. I would have heard of a lot of DNF's over the speaker. I don't know what you should do as event master, starter or grid. I still don't understand the rule. "NOV" on the door and Instructor magnet on the...

Re: Passengers at Champ events

Rule or rumor? If it is a rule it needs to be published, it needs to have visibility and people need to understand it. I heard it from someone and they said, "You could take any passenger on any run as long as they were older than some age and they had a helmet. You could have an instructor any time...

Re: R1R TW200

However, given that toyo has all but explicitly stated that the 140 and 200 tw version are identical other than the stamp on the sidewall, why should anyone care if you show up on 140tw toyos? Even in pax I wouldn't protest a 140tw toyo tire. but show up on a bridgestone or yoko <200tw tire and i'd...

Re: R1R TW200

The drivers that are running every event, tour, pro and practices with a few sets of wheels could get a practice set of ZII*s now and then run the Toyo when it is available. The practice set would be a bummer but they could run in class for points for the first 2 events. If they don't get tires they...

I already proposed that last fall, that we allow 140TW tire FOR ALL STREET TIRE Classes until the SD tour.... and it was quashed by several board types. They're response was to buck up and buy tires. And then more or less added, if we want to save tire money we should have bought 200TW tires last y...

Re: R1R TW200

Doug makes a good point. Maybe STS needs to take a broader look at it. I've changed my view somewhat when this was brought up at the committee level, I didn't think we should officially allow 140TW in 2014. But at least for the R1R, although it can't be proved beyond all doubt, it now appears fairl...

2015 SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS changes??

It looks like it is time to make an update to the SRs. Street class replaced Stock in 2014. The 2013 SRs did not get updated to reflect the changes. George Schilling asked me to start this thread. The 2015 events start in January and it would be nice to update the SRs before they start. My understan...
