  1. 40 views and no offers. People must know the market Bought a 7x14 v nose, thanks .
  2. Looking to buy something in the next week or two. Putting out there if someone had one they aren’t using. 14-18’ enclosed for moving and storage Thanks!
  3. Dial gives you more fine control from what I read. if it’s in the cabin you can make live adjustments based on track conditions, tires, etc but generally it’s a set and forget item. I’d make it somewhere in the cabin accessible but not in a place easily messed with or accidentally disturbed. I saw one install where they had a cover over it in the bottom of the dash console. I don’t track day so what do I know though....
  4. Let us know when you have listed it on BAT I truthfully hope to see it around being used to do what it was meant to....
  5. Unfortunately I believe if St Andrews Airport doesn’t speak up to the the RM to back us and the other users of the decommissioned runway (outside of MPR), the outcome likely won’t be in our favour at this point. I truly hope that the council in the RM that will be responsible for the land use/zoning bylaws will respect that we’ve been there for a decade without so much as a complaint, and have invested money in the site. The issue with MPR and dragsters is the peak sound levels in the burnout box and at full throttle. Top fuel dragsters can reach 150db, and the cars actively racin
  6. Awesome Adam. Looking forward to this build and crossing paths more often. What trim level was it? Lsd? At least covid gives time to build a car...
  7. Likely 141 Dodds Road if someone's looking. Nice property.
  8. The hole in the photo should have had a plug in it. The backside of the bolt is inside the chassis that you can likely access through that hole. Spray penetrating fluid deep in there as well if you haven’t already. That is a grade 12.9 bolt so it’ll be stupid strong and likely quite long. I have had to pull up carpet or panels to access the upper portion of the bolt.
  9. You should see the video of two guys in a gm dealer lot that gutted 50ish new trucks one night. What damage cordless sawsalls in the wrong hands can do in a remote dealer complex.... I figure as hardship will probably grow with covid, we will see more electrical wiring go missing in houses and commercial sites, and more thefts of CC’s.
  10. Jeff used to have an open dump on his integra back in the day. Was loud as hell at full boost. It’s a novelty that I think would wear off quickly as we age. Also as mentioned not legal, and we know the viu will nail us for that but leave rotten Structurally compromised cars on the road.
  11. I felt that way the first time I heard “ Gazoo Racing”. Then I saw this and my mind changed back to that this is more then a TRD package... https://toyotagazooracing.com/gr/yaris/
  12. That’s a win. As of late there hasn’t been enough of those and I have a feeling crime will only increase as more people end up in hard times..
  13. Cameras by themselves are useless. I install them for commercial clients. Proper lighting and coverage of key areas is critical but prevention is what’s needed. Supplied footage is archived or disregarded and no one gets charged. Jim is bang on about stamping initials and/or serial numbers into wheels. It just totally sucks. Also note most base homeowner policies only cover $2000-2500 in auto parts without a extension policy for auto parts.
  14. The last one I knew go missing like this got roller painted a different color and was registered as a homemade... was years later recovered by RCMP in sask. looks like a awesome aluminum deck, I’m sorry you have to deal with that bs.
  15. Just an update to put closure to this thread. Life took different turns and the amount of money and time still required to make the corolla into what my vision would have taken a long time and cash totals into 5 digits. I came to a fork in the road and had to decide what to do. The car was going to end up heavier then my intended 2400 lbs (would have ended up about 2600lbs which is the same as a loaded e30 3 series) At that point buying a car that will be road legal without question makes more sense. The shell has been recycled and the parts accumulated have been sold off. The only t
  16. @Corey may be able to shed light on his old focus hatchback setup, but seat time is the most important piece of the puzzle.
  17. Off the hop rhd jdm stuff is hard to get guys to work on, let alone electrical. http://master12volt.com/ On Chevrier May be worth inquiring with.
  18. I’ll try to make that one. I’ve never made it to Minaki before. At least it was last weekend and not slated for this one....
  19. I’ll have my work cutout for me, it’s been a bit since I drove fwd course looks neat but the rain really must have been coming down, Be glad Ben there wasn’t a per cone charge for the event lol.
  20. She got to go doing what she was passionate about trying to break insane barriers knowing well the risks involved. I did watch her on speed as well. I think even after her passing based on the people she was with and the changes she started, she will be influencing generations to come.
  21. I’ve been looking at many regions and they do heats where first 3 runs count and the second 3 later are fun. I think from the perspective of growing the sport an additional run may help grow the sport locally with additional seat time, and it can be upto the schools and instructors to emphasize the importance of getting it done in less if intending to go elsewhere.
  22. Look on air bnb? camp Morton has a 4 bed cabin. Matlock has listings. It all comes down to availability.
  23. Based on Canadian solo standards 4 runs are what qualify for the championship. I’d expect any runs above that to be bonus fun runs built into the event. In the Scca format you only get three runs. It’s to put that much more weight on getting your run in your head during the course walks and learning to navigate the course. Once you do it more then a few times it just becomes a simple race course and the whole mental aspect goes by the wayside. Thats my two cents. I don’t care either way as I’m more likely to get a clean run with more attempts
