  5. In regards to spec tire. I will personally be vouching for the Westlake. Even after investing in many sets of 14” rims I think that these West Lake tires are hard to beat at $100ish each. They are not available in 14”. When and if we do choose a spec tire I’m hoping not to have a variance in aspect ratio/sizing. Car number 5 - 2265LB - 250LB - 1/4 tank ish.
  6. Most of us weighed our cars in 2017 and I think we should compare the results so we can see what's really attainable for a minimum weight, and so we can see the weight differences within CCC. I will go first: my CRX weighed in at 2137 pounds with me in it and 1/4 tank of gas. I weigh 225 lbs. My car was probably the lightest in CCC. I have no objection to a spec tire for 2018. Let's just make sure we choose something that is cheap and available. I used the Westlake for half of race four and all of race 5 and I liked them. I wouldn't recommend the Hankook RS4 because I had chunking issues with them and the RS4s were not as good as the Weslakes in the rain. Azenis are good too and they are available in 14" sizes. If we can agree on a spec tire it might automatically limit the width as well. FYI - Just to be clear the rules for CCC do not allow non-oem camshafts. I think we should also discuss some permitted parts substitutions for CCC. For example, engines that are equivalent to the D16A6, but are more available and cheaper. The point is to allow more access to cheaper parts without giving anyone a competitive advantage.
  7. Mustang 5 spoke mags for sale

    I'm selling a set of mags off my 2005 mustang GT. Used for winters. Not bad shape. Must sell. Includes tire pressure sensors. $100 takes the set of 4 away. Reply to rihanson@mts.net

    (1) Mike Adams The Car that Roy Thibault raced was a 1963 Corvette not a 1966 Corvette (i.e. Have spoken to him) . Thanks for your reply (2) Al Marcroux This picture taken in 1988 is the picture of the 1963 Corvette that was raced by Roly Thibault and not the 1966 Corvette that I am trying to determine owner of. http://registryofcorvetteracecars.com/ee/index.php/site/view_cars/1159 Generation: C2 Year: 1963 VIN: SCCA log# 27-641 Northwest Race Numbers: 24, 50, 44 Ownership: Pat Usher, Dan Pearson and his Dad, Rolly Thibault, Bruce Grout Steven Cole Sponsors: Drivers: Pat Usher, Dan Pearson and his Dad, Rolly Thibault, Bruce Grout Steve Cole, Charlie Parsons Notes/Race History: Raced by the original Doctor owner in 1963-66 in SCCA Region 96 Oregon Autocross events. Pat Usher from Portland, Oregon bought the car in 1966 raced it autocross first, then Cascade Club and SCCA B/P until 1969. In 1970 the car was disassembled and made into a Daytona Blue 454 ASR car which he ran until 1976 when he won the regional ASR championship. Pat found a Z06 big tank at a junk yard in Los Angeles and installed it in the car to run enduros with it. Pat paid $30 for the tank! Talked to his crew chief back in the day. I also spoke with Dan Pearson and his Dad who raced the car in Trans Am as a black 350 engine car for several years in the North West. Then the car went up to Canada for a while with some good success and stories. Rolly Thibault owned and drove it as a white T/A car. He was a wealth of information about the car. Robert Passport then ended up with the car for some of the 80s until a real estate developer out of Tampa, FL bought the car and kept it until 2012 when he was killed in an (3) Marc and Al The car that I am trying to find out the Canadian owner of prior to 1989 is: 1966 Corvette that : Notes/Race History: Built on 2/15/1966 and shipped to Nelson Chev., Seattle WA. race car and repainted red w/ white race stripe.

  9. Here’s a few things that I’d like to see for 2018 As I mentioned before a minimum race weight of 2286 for a few reasons (my fat ass) also so that all the cars that were built to IT3 specs can remain competitive as well as people new to the class can easily attain the min weight. In MY opinion given the research showing that historically CRX’s were penalized we need to address this fairly. (weight) Ideally follow a spec tire rule as do the formula v group. Azenis, Westlake or otherwise. I don’t feel that a TW spec is the best way to achieve linearity. (The performance and price point of the Westlake tires that Super WAYNE can secure for us are worth discussing in my opinion...I’m sure #87 and #200 would agree) Regardless of us agreeing on a spec tire we need to definitely set max tire sizes. How can a 195 compete against a 225? Weighing cars / Tech I understand that workers are at a premium and it’s a hassle...but it is so crucial to us tightening up our group and making every driver feel like they have a chance. Fingers get pointed. Here’s one level that we can tighten up. Camshafts....a huge contention point. We all know this is covered under the DT limitations. This is the big one. If you’re using something non OEM...you’re really not racing. I find it really hard to believe that anyone is actually doing this. We should have some way of encouraging any car who seems to have a considerable edge to have to change their cam to a known oem “Marked” cam. Frankly I’m sick of the speculation here and would like to get past this. This is something that can be done at the track. Let’s find a way to put this speculation to rest.

    Is this the one? June 88.
  12. I am sure the 1988 recollection was Roly Thibault's Corvette. I can't remember, but I think I brought him out for driving school with a group from Regina. I already passed his contact information on to Bill Keogh. I am still searching my archive for stuff about Roly's car. Mike Adams

  15. It looks like there is a blue vette in this clip The race starts at 11:10 and the first decent shot of it is at 11:45 Or I could be totally wrong and it's a 1928 Morris.

  22. Promoting autocross

    We had a great meeting today with many good quality discussions. Here are the minutes. For all currently unassigned tasks, we need some help with these. They can become a separate forum topic for discussion amongst all, or a champion can take the ball and just run with it. Meeting Minutes 2017-10-15.docx
  23. Kris and I will be there. Kris has an onion allergy and I have a tree nut allergy. Thanks, Wayne
  24. Earlier
  25. Promoting autocross

    Hey beau I’ll need your address as well thanks
  26. Promoting autocross

    Ice racing uses a poster with the dates published. Even if we make a "generic" poster, we could ask suppliers, customers, friends to put up a poster at their place of business. If someone travels to the lake (Kenora area?), put one up at the local store, etc?
