Re: NEW GUY!!! Ready for 2018!

Hello Pasi and welcome! Our first event is the weekend of January 13/14th (updated!) 2018 at Auto Club Speedway. Keep an eye on our registration page ( http://solo2.motorsportreg.com/ ) and sign up when it goes live (probably in a week or two). So what kind of car are you bringing out? We'll make su...

Re: found a tire gauge and infrared thermometer?

I saw them when I was packing up one of the grids....but it was still early in fun runs so I just put an extra cone down (so they wouldn't get run over) and left them. Hopefully someone put them in the motor home. FYI: Our lost and found is pretty much the entire passenger seat of the motor home. If...

Re: When do Juniors run on Sunday?

To be absolutely clear about today: Per my discussions with Steve and David yesterday, we'll be running karts after the cars. Roughly at lunch time....depending on when the cars finish. We'll give the kids some time to do a course walk and then run them right after. This will in essence create a ver...

Re: When do Juniors run on Sunday?

Hey David, Nothing is "cast in stone" at this point. I'm just trying to make sure we have a successful smooth running event. Again, with the new format, we probably didn't handle you kart families properly. But that being said, let's get this worked out. It's really not the clubs intention...

Re: When do Juniors run on Sunday?

Hey Steve, First of all, my apologies for not addressing this correctly in the event communications. Per our discussions last event: I thought we agreed that we didn't want to run the kids intermingled with the cars at all, so we would like to try and run the juniors before first car out. Specifical...

Looking for course setup help this Friday (Dec 1, 2017)

We're looking for 2 additional people to help with course setup this Friday in Fontana (updated: time 1:00PM). Tom Berry will be our course designer, so this would be a great chance to not only help the club out (and cover your Saturday work assignments) but also to pick Tom's brain for all the grea...

Re: Hello! Novice intro + tire pressure question

Hey Danielle (and Diego), I've been autocrossing my Vette for many years now. There's a couple of schools of thought on the topic...but generally most folks start with the fronts in the 32-34 lb. range and start with the backs like 2 lbs. lower. Then they'll typically adjust to fix car handling prob...

Hi David,

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

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?

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.

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.
