Re: Thinkin' of Lincoln Practice Hosted by the E-Board

KJ, I am also splitting my entry with Alex Valencia. He will be running in the morning, and I will run in the afternoon (I have to fly in the morning). Can you please let registration know that? Thanks!

Re: Thinkin' of Lincoln Practice Hosted by the E-Board

Does anyone want to split an entry with me? I need to practice for nationals, but I work til noon. Anyone want to take the morning runs and I'll take the afternoon runs? Does anyone know if the Cal Poly people will be coming out? As long as we can use our own cars, I'm good. So would the entry fee ...

Re: SK changes?

I think RT is gaining in popularity, and we should change our SK1/2 classes to mirror the National ones. That way it would be easier when a tour/divisional/super regional is factored in for points, Rick/Christine would have a lot of work to do if we kept SK1/2. It would also make it more fair should...

Anyone have a 36mm socket?

I need to tighten down some axle nuts, but I got nothing like that in my tool collection. Could I use it for a day at the Super Regional?

Thanks,
James

Nationals registration is open

Dunno if you guys know it or not, but it's been open for a couple days. Haven't seen anyone from SoCal sign up, so I was wondering if its becuase no one knows about it. If there is a specific number you want to run at Nats, better do it quick!

Re: Tom Berry! Another Miata course?

Yeah, I did forget in my initial post that the PAX was not adjusted anymore for it being a Pro. I have no idea what 200ft times would be for an STR car, but I'm pretty sure they suck in a STR MX5 :D Dude, MX5s launch better than S2000s on Hankooks! It was soooo painful to see in the corner of my ey...

Any good recommendations for good/inexpensive car insurance and/or agents? I want to use State Farm, but they are just getting too expensive...

I'm not a homeowner, so can't use that for any discounts.

Anyone (KJ???) know of any good mechanics around the LA/LAX area? I have a friend that wants to buy a 99 Porsche 911, but is thinking about having the car checked by a mechanic before he buys. Any suggestions?
