  1. Haven't tried everything on the list but here's my input

    Used harness

    Looking for a used harness, 4 or 5 point, can be expired. Just something to be occasionally used for a passenger seat.
  6. I have had a few questions about where to find your membership number which is now included in the FAQ. Where can I see my membership number? Go to "My Profile" at the top right of the MSR page. Click on your name and scroll down to see a list of all memberships and your associated membership number.
  7. I had a good experience with RE71's on my S2000. Multiple hot lapping days with 20+ laps per day, plus some autoslalom. I ran them for 2 seasons, probably 150-ish laps on the old Gimli surface and a dozen or so autoslalom events. Now the car was rarely street driven other than driving to and from events and it's a fairly light car to begin with so your mileage might vary. They did not like the heat as much as I would have liked, which I imagine would only get worse on a heavier car. They had about 5-7 laps in them before they needed to cool off. I switched to Maxxis VR-1's and liked how those handled heat. Good amounts of grip when hot but they really lacked the cold bite the RE71's had, not sure I'd recommend them for autoslalom. I think you'll end up needing to make a compromise as I've yet to see a tire that excels at both autoslalom and track driving.
  8. Jim, do you know if this will be incorporated into safety inspections?
  9. If anyone hasn't seen this, NASA has a link to an online calculator which makes confirming class pretty simple. https://form.jotform.com/drivenasa/st-tt-car-classification-form
  10. Updated, thanks for catching this
  11. Ontario is different for this type of thing since insurers have more discretion to deny or surcharge vehicles based on modifications and will cancel you if they get a whiff of motorsports. The person at the autopac location likely knows very little about this and I'd be willing to bet the person they spoke to at MPI was a CSR or something similar. A MPI claims person would likely be able to shed more light on how they would handle this situation, but I'm not sure they are available to speak to with questions. The area of the vehicle inspection book that might make reference to this is on page 31, section 10-7 - Frame and/or Structural Body Components. It states "(B) inspect for evidence of collision damage or additional welding on frame rails or unibody" and to reject (fail) if "(D) structural components does not meet OEM or I-CAR standards" MPI/rules aside, a cage is a bad idea for a street car. Higher costs to repair and potential to cause additional damage to the vehicle itself. Potential increases to both frequency and severity of injury, not to mention potential injury to passengers who may or may not be aware what a cage can do if you aren't wearing a helmet. Plus you are compromising the safety design of a vehicle, especially if it's newer and didn't come from the factory with a cage like the GT3RS. Calling Vehicle Standards/MPI for their official answer is likely the only way to confirm how they would respond.
