  1. Sounds interesting, Steve. Keep going! Let's not forget about tire restrictions. Probably the most important factor for keeping costs under control. I didn't mind racing on the westlakes (hint, hint). From where I was sitting there were a few more close races than just one. But Jordan is right - with Steve and Clint missing some events and Jordan out altogether there was not as much traffic for me in 2017 as there was in 2016. Jordan, we hope to have you back racing for 2018!
  2. 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.
  3. I saw this ad on the Calgary sports car forum: https://cscc.speedracer.ca/forums/marketplace/suits-helmets-and-hans-and-stuff/ Two Hans devices $350 each like new. You don't see them at this price very often. Might be a good thing to pick up now if you want to start road racing next year. Just check to make sure it is the proper hans device for you and your car. FYI - I don't know the seller and have never seen the hans myself.
  4. POT LUCK!

    I will bring beer (homebrew).
  5. Yes I agree we should discuss this for 2018. It would be great if everyone in CCC could get their car weighed and be willing to share that information (car weight and driver weight).
  6. Here is a rules change I am proposing for next year's season (2018). We don't need to debate it just yet, but here it is, well in advance. I think we should acknowledge that some of our older honda parts are getting harder to find, so we need to be more liberal than what the PT rules would technically allow for substitutions. For example, there are several engines that are equivalent to the D16A6 but have a different engine code, like the ZC single cam. Or putting together an engine / chassis combination from the same generation of honda that honda never produced. The point is to allow better access to parts, but not to allow a competitive advantage with these substitutions. So no you can't build a ringer car that is JDM only spec - it still needs to essentially match what was sold in Canada. Here is some suggested wording: C1 (engine swaps) are permitted but only between engines and chassis of civics of the same generation. Both the engine and chassis must have been originally sold in Canada for the same generation of civic, or equivalent to engines and chassis originally sold in Canada for the same generation of civic. The resulting combination of engine, chassis, weight, and other modifications must be within the limits of PTE and CCC rules. I am not totally happy with that wording yet. Perhaps we should change "engines" to "drivetrains". A list of examples of acceptable substitutions could also be helpful.
  7. Custom Alignments

    FYI - CAPS uses degrees to measure toe, so if you are old school and still think of toe in inches do the conversion to degrees ahead of time. FWIW on a 22" tire 1/16" of toe equals 0.16 degrees or 0 degrees and 9 minutes. Hope that helps.
  8. Thanks Mat! Good idea on the scales. I have started asking how we can arrange to have them available. Al is interested too.
  9. Custom Alignments

    Had an alignment done today. CAPS had no problem working around my low ground clearance car, and aligning to custom specs. Friendly competent service at a good price. Thanks Frank! Why go anywhere else?
  10. Regarding PTE and CCC for event 1: for WSCC championship points all the hondas in PTE are CCC except Clint. For WSCC championship points Clint is in PTE. If that needs clarification please PM me. Thanks for posting results so quickly!
  11. Rules as discussed on this forum thread are in Appendix A below. Gary Roberts from WCMA suggested formatting the rules using the same categories as PT preperation points. This makes sense to me. Where the IT engine rules and PT prep points didn't quite match up some additional explaination was added. The purpose was to grandfather any engines that were previously built to IT specs, and keep all engines within IT specs. You will notice that in some modifications "will be reviewed in 2018". The point is that if anyone starts spending stupid amounts of money on things like aero, brakes, or super wide tires we will ban these items in 2018. So don't bother. I also added a ban on dry sump oiling systems at my own discretion. I didn't think anyone would object. Any comments or concerns please post them here or call me.

  12. FS: 14x6 4x100 10 pound wheels $300

    Sold - that was quick!
  13. One set of four 14x6 aluminum wheels. $300. These are the good 7 spoke miata wheels with enlarged center bores to 57.1mm. Light at 10 pounds approx. I can provide them when I am back in Winnipeg in May. Look similar to the attached picture. Comes with well used Azenis.
  14. Acrylon plastics used to do this kind of thing way back when. Sorry for the late reply. http://www.acrylon.com/Home/Thermoforming
