    Seeking Tire Advice

    Darn that sucks, good thing you had a trailer for Gimli. What is the date code mfg date on this tire, does it match the one that blew out or the other front? How does the other front tire look like on the inside edges? Do you have a second tire gauge to test your usual autox gauge? Does it read low? Looking back we killed those Nexen's last year really fast, the middle still had meat which would indicate low pressure too.

    No French only. (CBC and Radio Canada operate independently for the most part)

    Nice! Huge thanks to Marc, Eric and Rob for the interviews.

    Pierre Verriere from Radio Canada (CBC French) was on site, I found his Twitter posts but nothing on the website yet (I expect they would report on this either tonight or tomorrow and post it up on their site: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/manitoba) Darn, I wish I could have made it today and helped out with a french interview if they needed it.
  5. Hi, I just reviewed the current 2018 Rulebook and all addendums since its release. At this time I do no see any classing for the new Kia Stinger. The official class at this time is Super Street (SS) under the "catch-all" however I expect this to be officially classed somewhere else when reviewed. I'll keep an eye out and report back if I see a listing.

  7. Last year was a ton of fun. Fun lot, lot's of competitors. Too bad on timing

    Strange looking part

    What a "shifty" day, of all things to let go that's a weird one. Looked good out there otherwise, hope see it out again soon.
  9. Yes the rulebook states all Honda Accords are in H-Street
  10. I had a look on page 157 of the 2018 rule-book and noticed the same. This comes up often in SCCA fastracks updates. Not EVERY car is classed in street. there's always clarifications and model splitting going on. With your situation it's safe to assume the they intent is to include the Golf 2.5 in HS with the "Jetta 2.5". The "Golf GTI & Jetta (16v non turbo)" line realistically should just drop the 16v verbiage to include 20v. I doubt there's many Golf 2.5L's running so his has never been brought up. I assume this 2.5L is N/A? Looks like the turbo Golf of this generation would be under GS not HS. Also is the Golf with a 2.5L available in the States too or is that a Canada only model?
  11. I'm guessing you have a 2005 Mini Cooper S? (Yr and model may vary the class). If so, changing springs will keep you in STX. Spring are legal in all ST, SP, SM, P, M and CAM classes. The only class you CANNOT install aftermarket springs in is "Street" class.
  12. Speaking of Rimac, excellent example to highlighting why this a concern for ASN. Richard Hammond from Top Gear/Grand Tour crashed one last season and it caught fire. IIRC it took several DAYS to put out the fire since it kept re-igniting from the cells inside the battery packs.

  14. Bump, original post updated with 2018 links and season changes. Post any questions here.
  15. Not sure what model car this is referencing but STX does allow strut tower bars, note you can only add a tower bar with 2 attachment point. A 3 point is only allowed if you are replacing a factory oem 3 point bar, see 14.2.G in the SCCA solo rulebook for more info if this applies to you. Wheels in STX are up to 8.0 inches for AWD cars and 9.0 inches for 2wd cars (14.4 for more info). Hope that helps!
