  1. That was a great day at the track! I can't thank everyone enough for all the help to keep the event running smooth. It was great to see a bunch of new faces and old friends. Here's my 2nd run, my best today: My 4th run was on track to be better, but, um... yeah... I got too greedy and ran out of talent:
  2. I'll be there. I'll bring a charged air tank to refill trailer tires. Won't have enough to do all, but it beats pumping all of them.
  3. Thank you very much for the help Brian! Corey Dyck, #1455, keeping #93
  4. Dates updated in first post. Aaron, the season pass will not be available this year. It was not well received in previous years.

  6. That's a LOT of speed for under $8k! Wow! If you haven't already, list it on Apexspeed.com. You'll have to buy a membership, I think, but a much bigger pool of buyers.
  7. Joker lap? Nice! I might be able to make a Monday league. It's been a while since I've done a league night. Anyone else? EDIT: I can't read. I can't make Tuesday or Thursday. :/
  8. #55 is Al? Still impressive. I struggled with a Quaife, but that was also my first year on the ice. #newbieproblems
  9. So awesome to watch a master at work! Thanks for sharing! It's even more impressive to know that car has an open diff. (At least, I think it does...) Patience and aggression balanced so nicely.
  10. The kart looks uncomfortably wide on the bobsled track. Looks wild though! Mark, the 250 looks suitably insane too! Why the wet/intermediate tires?
  11. There are Miata roll bars available that let you keep the soft top. I assume they're also available for the NC. I had a Hard Dog model in my NA. Get the SCCA-approved ones, not the chrome 'sporty' hoop ones. Option 2: get a lower seat. I had a fibreglass race seat in my NA, sat right on the floor. I was really low. A 5'6" friend couldn't see over the dash. Getting in and out of a race seat is a bit much for some people for a daily driver, and fitting wide(r) race seats in Miatas requires careful planning/purchasing. Option 3: 350Zs are really nice. I've been impressed how well Chris D's has treated him over many years of service.
  12. Dude, the first rule of the brown board is that you don't talk about/link to the brown board.
  13. What's your racing goal? Assuming STR S2000 at autocross: If you want to place higher locally (and at other bigger events), you need 255/40R17 Bridgestone RE71R tires. The BFG Rival S in the same size is a good second choice, but it doesn't do as well on the cool days we often get. The RE71R likes tidy driving, the Rival prefers higher slip angles. Wider tires aren't allowed in STR, and a 275 Azenis or 888R still aren't as fast as a 255 RE71R. Sad but harsh truth. Compound beats width, proven by lots of people that have tried. 255s fit an S2000 with the correct offset wheel with no changes, though rolling the front fender lips is strongly recommended to avoid catching and pulling the fender while countersteering in an oversteer moment. If just having fun, get the tires you find in the best condition/price or the ones you like the best. All cars look better with wider tires, within reason.
  14. Amen to that! I got very comfortable with a sliding car and slide recovery by getting it wrong a few hundred times on the ice.
