Re: Seeking course designer

Should be plenty of time to even allow course walking, but that is optional for a practice IMHO. With 12 runs, you can use your first as your course walk. Though exceptionally rare... it's also not completely unheard of for either a practice, or championship to do a parade lap, instead of walks. (a...

Re: Seeking course designer

Sunrise is 6:39am. 1 hour, 51 minutes before first car leaves the line. Back when we used to do this, cones were often on the ground well before first light. Sunrise brought fine tuning. Also it wasn't just a hand full of people doing it as their work assignment, but all hands on deck by the sponso...

I also have a Sparco fixed back seat on slider/seat rail for a 1989 CRX. Back seats for CRX's are rare. Even more so to be on sliders.

Re: January 16/17 2015 Picture/Video Thread

New Bridgestone RE71R tires produced a miracle. This was my best autocross performance in years! I concur! Took a gamble on the Dunlops two days before the Bridestone release based upon the prior Gen for each tire. I was 2-4 sec off pace all last year. Stood on my very 1st run, with rubber nubs sti...

Re: How does the year end standings / trophies work?

Inexplicably, San Diego has somehow become much further away than in the past and I no longer attend regularly. I won't be in a SD club in 2016. Can I still renew my card for $10 with no club in case I do want to come down occasionally? Nope, Hommie (S.D) don't play that game! But... just like in L...

Re: How does the year end standings / trophies work?

Your description of SD rules are incorrect. In San Diego points earned aside, you must attend 2/3ds of all events to qualify for year end trophy. Then they remove the lowest points to nominilize to those 2/3rd of events (rounded up). In LA you must attend 1/2 of all events. A sliding scale then dete...

Re: Who has attended Speed Ventures autocross events?

I've only attended two, but here is my take: - While the times are often 1/2 to 2/3's of our typical courses, they often with double backs (sections you run twice), just like ...

You failed to list a price....
While you ask for no low-ballers, with out a target price your only encouraging such.

Addition or subtraction of either the front or rear stabilizer bar is legal. The Racing Beat support block to stiffen the mount is not.
