Re: Jeopardizing Our Venues and Endangering Lives

I was at a National Tour in 2012 that got shut down because people at another event (completely unrelated) had let their adrenaline take over on the public road. Two idiots decided to race exotic cars around the stadium while getting fuel and ended up losing control and killing a motorcyclist. Two ...

Re: TNT Autocross Saturday Feb 22nd at Harry Grove

Still in the break-in period for the new clutch I put on my FR-S which means no hard launches, so no autocross for now. Why did you get a new clutch? It can't have that many miles on it. The break in period for the clutch that was put in the mini last year was the 140 mile drive from the dealer to ...

Re: Need Wheel Centering Rings

Try giving Tire Rack a call. They don't have the hub centric rings on their website, but I know they carry them. They might just have what you're looking for and you could possibly avoid the cost of custom machine work.

Re: New Changes for the 2014 Season

Not apples to apples for sure, but best comparo I have: Brian Peters (better driver than me by a long shot): 1st in STR 350Z Total Time 133.576 Me: 2nd in BSP 350Z Total Time 126.839 Interesting data. Based on this, you would have been exactly 2.125 seconds quicker if that was a "40 second course"....

Re: Newbie ??

If you're looking at buying one I would recommend getting a SNELL helmet since some other clubs (SCCA for example) require SNELL certified helmets. No point in getting one that you won't be able to use everywhere.

Re: Bowie August 31 Results

My runs ended up being in Jim Harris's S2k due to the mini's failure to retain coolant appropriately (thanks again Jim!) so my index needs to be changed. Nick's index should also to changed, he ended up driving Kamran's M3.

Re: Woodbridge July 27th Results

The second slot discount is mentioned in the reminder email Ed sends out to members about two weeks before the event. The number of runs are decided in a more fluid way. It's typically based on the course length, how smoothly things are running (e.g. if we're running late or not) and what the weathe...

We can even try and get some of the fancy owners to come autocrossing :D. HA good luck.

I can't imagine, based on my observations, that you'll get many interested autocrossers. Th...
