Re: Wider car setup

I'm a total newbie at this, but wouldn't making a car wider make slaloms and linked turns more difficult? I understand the CG would be lowered; and maybe that offsets the bigger steering inputs required. Anyways I always feel like my car is too big whether it's autocrossing, driving on the street, ...

Re: Children under 12 riding in a car at an event.

My guess it has to do with insurance, and the insurers perception of who would potentially not be properly secured in a seat belt in an incident. IMHO were lucky it's not a age, and weight, & height combo... - Thankfully they drew one line in the sand (now with an exceptionally for tall 11 & under k...

Re: Tire opinions for STS 92 Miata?

Hey Steve, Hope to see you back out here... Based upon this years National results, all STS cars were shod with either BFGoodrich GForce Rival's or Bridgestone RE71R's. 195/50/15 was the "chosen size" for many years due to lower unsprung weight, plus the cheater compound on the Toyo's....but more an...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

Thank you all for your input. At this point, I'm not seeing anything that hints at us not moving forward with consolidation. There are some fine points that may need to be tweaked, but no reason not to proceed with this proposal. is that correct? - Seven day have passed since the post was made. - 3...

Re: Wider car setup

With same size wheels and tires would a wider track in the front or back give better rotation? On a fwd. Back when I was running the Integra in GS, I ran Kuhmo Victoracers in the front, and Falken Azenis - 215's (model not size) in the rear. Similar intent, where your looking at track, I played wit...

If its stated on the internet it must be true... Part 2 If no club steps up to host, seems the default is e-board. Again, not true.

Not recently, that I'm aware of. They've had a similar attitude our region has vs. El Toro... All other sites are smaller, and therefor inferior, so their not good enough to consider as alternatives. For example, Norton was good enough for LA region nearly a decade... Then we got access to El Toro. ...
