Re: From the NOTLD Event Chair

I would LOVE to have been that fast but those times are wrong. Sorry for all the confusion folks. I ran my first 2 runs of the night on street tires during heat 2 for class points, and then my other 2 runs in heat 4 on Hosers to begin getting myself acclimated to R-comps (for Nationals). It was appr...

Re: Airfare Alert for Nationals

I just hope they're not bankrupt when Nationals rolls around :? I hope you bought your tickets on a credit card... I flew on them last year to Nats. The whole airplane (the one I was on) was configured for all business class seats. Very painless flight. I dunno how much it cost (It was free for me)....

Re: Where to get race alignment?

Ummm yeah.... I can't help but think by the tone of many of the post you all think Yom is a newbie. He may appear to drive like @ss and be new to the area, but he has been around for a long time and is one of the top drivers in the country. He was asking for a shop referral because he is new to the...

Wow, I can't believe it... someone made a sticky street tire that's wider than a 225 for 16 inch wheels? My prayers have been answered!!! Now maybe the rear end of my car will actually follow the front end for once... Sorry James, that ain't going to fix your problem. It's an easy fix if you stop d...

Re: Where to get race alignment?

Thanks guys. The reason I was specific about race alignments is that there are certain things you need to do to maximize the alignment that most tire shops won't even bother with, and if you ask, they refuse. I've also had shops refuse to let the car go with different cambers (one side will have mor...

Where to get race alignment?

Wondering where you all get your race alignments done, what kind of equipment is it (LED/light wave or other), how much you paid, and contact info. Note that I said race alignment and not just some tire place that does alignments. I need a very specific alignment that those tire places don't have th...

Re: ANSWERS TO NOTLD

gotcha thanks. I'm not an x-run fan either, but I can't believe a region as big as Cal Club doesn't have a test and tune right before Nationals for those that are going. I find it ironic that a club that has "practices" before events doesn't have one the month before Nationals.

Re: ANSWERS TO NOTLD

So, question. Why does CalClub hold NOTLD during the part of the year where the days are the longest, versus doing the event in say December? Sunset for NOTLD is 7:43pm but in dec it would have been 2 hours earlier. Just curious.

Re: Ekstrand loudly requests a date be fixed.

Yeah I saw the whole thing about averages, but if I was going to Nats and had to miss it, I'd rather take a drop than an average. Then again, I'm about as inconsistent as they come. I'll have to read the Supps one of these days, when my ADD and restless leg syndrome aren't as severe ;) Thanks Jayson.

Ahhh ok. Well, how about we make 8 events count and 4 drops this year to help appease the folks going to Nats?

Re: Ekstrand loudly requests a date be fixed.

really? Looking at the 2006 season, there were only 12 championship events, but the points with drops was 1000, meaning you only get 2 drops. Am I not seeing something?

Re: Ekstrand loudly requests a date be fixed.

I agree with Brian R. Even though the folks going to Nationals are some of the biggest contributors for the region, they are a minority, and Nationals does not affect them at all. To be fair to the entire membership, the show must go on, Nationals folks or not. Here is what I don't get: why on earth...

I think Ekstrand, Thomason and Isley would be a better team for the show. :lol: Which one wouldn't be the brutally honest one?!? No doubt, Gary can sugar coat it... The rest of us don't seem to have that skill. I dunno about Isley. He has a face for radio and a voice for print. Oh yeah, that's why ...

Anyone looking for a co-driver and/or class filler for the Wendover Pro? Lots of classes look very empty. Bump classes suck!

the 1:30 is available but 4:00 is not. But I believe if you're there for the 1:30 that you can stay for the whole thing. Anyway, I registered.
