Re: STS Rule question and answer!

Steve, that's just because you're you. :lol: Good work! I have all those brochures from when I bought my '97 new, so had I known I could have saved you a lot of trouble.

Wow, that's pretty.

Based on some actual sales I've seen recently, that's a very fair price... hope it finds a good home!

Re: Porsche's LA Track! Thanks Pete L

I've already talked to a Porsche employee about this, and they stated that they "intend to make it available to other groups." It is expected to be open by the end of 2014. Over the weekend, I was also told that our local PCA folks are currently talking to the home office in Altanta to get details, ...

Re: Trying to figure out shock valving

Throw the math book out the window. As Jason hints at in his post, shocks are often used to make up for other limitations in your car's suspension. Having had some direct experience with this, I could quote you numbers that you wouldn't believe. Spring and shock rates you car needs for racing are fa...

Re: Stock class legality of replacment convertable top

You don't want to buy a hard top for the NC because they are about twice the cost of the NA/NB tops!

Good news on the top replacement... I remember that being an issue in the early vinyl-top cars (mine was cloth) so I'm glad they are working with you on that.

But in thinking about, is doesn't make much sense that they can take an instructor along to help them go faster, yet not take a friend along for some fun or pointers. They already CAN take a friend along, it just makes the run a DSQ, but everyone keeps forgetting that little detail. ... and then th...

One other item that we should promote with newbies is the Time Only class, because this is the only place they can have passengers in the car on a Sunday (with the exception of a dedicated "Instructor" run.)

Redline 75/90 NS is the right choice for the transmission.

CST is a catch all class so he could easily be STC legal. If you know of something that makes his car not STC legal, that should be the basis of your protest. Okay let me explain how I interpret this. Theoretically speaking, I could register in motorsportreg with the Class Novice and with an STS Pa...
