3  General / Classifieds / 2004 z06 corvette for sale on: October 03, 2017, 04:51:51 AM

Only Driven on Sundays ! This car is PURE AWESOME !
2004 z06 last year of model SSP or CAM-S Class, still has AC, stereo and a steering wheel. 65k miles most of which are highway driving to & from events. The car is located Richmond Va this is a well prepared autocross car that can easily double as a fun street car and/or a track car. Over $20,000USD invested over the years in parts not including labor or maintenance items.
 

The car is in good shape completely rust free but has a ton of cone rash, the front bumper is beat up (I drove straight through a plastic water barrier at an autox) and the body shop put a new bumper cover on it, paint never held up afterwards, car is garage kept very well maintained (oil changes, brake & clutch fluid flushes, transmission & diff fluid flushes all amsoil products, new front hubs installed last winter), The body is in good condition, front and rear bumper and decklid need paint, fenders, rear quarter panels, mirrors etc good

Wow that is very nice, and tempting !
6  Results / Autocross / Re: May 21 Results on: May 22, 2017, 06:35:26 AM
Wow...tied to the thousandth!!  One list shows my time as 38.403?  What determines the tie breaker?

Great day, fun course, really good people.  Thanks to everybody for a successful weekend.

Final results all the way down at the bottom by class, shows all runs if you look to the right under the "total" column your run actually shows 38.403 instead of .404 this may be a typo or a result of the computer rounding you to the nearest number. If you both did run a 38.404 I assume its possible that participants are sorted by last name and Jeff was inserted into the 2nd position.

7  Results / Autocross / Re: May 21 Results on: May 21, 2017, 06:46:48 PM
Looks like e street results are a little close between Jeff and John. In the breakdown of runs it looks like the final column shows John ran a 38.403 to Jeff's 38.404 but in overall it shows them with the same times 38.404.  To close to call but this is where tens of thousandths count.
8  Results / Autocross / Re: April 30 Results on: May 02, 2017, 06:42:13 AM
I think that cone call on #1 ES Mr2's second run 61.061 was in error if you could just double check the paper copy : )

Looks pretty good. How hard is yours to empty?
I recently installed one on the Vette and it looks great but to empty it without spilling anything will be a challenge.

Gunny

Did you get the Elite engineering one ? The one I have just unscrews from the bottom like a thermos, never spilled a drop. You don't want to let it get to full I supposed then there would be an issue.
10  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Oil catch can on: April 14, 2017, 06:26:59 AM

 As Mark said the throttle body and intake ports on the intake manifold side that mate to the engine were icky when I did the clutch which spawned me to get one. Its not like oil its more of a smeary pasty type of gummy bear film that you wouldn't want to lick.
11  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Oil catch can on: April 09, 2017, 03:54:10 PM
The catch can on my corvette catches the oil before it enters the intake but doesn't block the path. The oil it catches is pretty nasty looking when I remember to change it.

Stick with the RE-71R unless the R-S4's somehow has caught up. I'll wait for the Tire Rack tests.

Then you read stuff like this :

14  General / Technical Help / Re: wheel widening on: March 07, 2017, 05:29:24 AM

 A previous co-worker split off and started a franchise I believe called "Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists" In Richmond, not sure if they do widening or not I have heard of "weldcraftwheels" in Michigan that do it.

 Why wouldn't he try to get the original wheel manufacturer to make an inner barrel ? Do they want too much ? I know CCW wanted to much to justify doing it for me.
15  Events / Other Events / Re: No dyno day for now on: February 24, 2017, 05:31:24 AM

  Thanks for the update, I was thinking about doing the MR2 if we had one. Now I can be spared the disappointment from the results.
16  General / Open Forum / Re: Riding with your co-driver? on: February 19, 2017, 05:44:17 AM
 
 I never had an issue with it but a lot of people did. Is the OD allowed to make exemptions at each event on this ?

   Even so complaints will come in because the same people do it every event and those same people are good and getting better because of it. Data-logging is even more of an advantage and thats allowed so why can't competitors ride along with each other ?

 
17  General / Technical Help / Re: 2017 street tires on: February 11, 2017, 05:26:37 AM

 That bothered me about my 17 inch ccw's couldn't find appropriate 17 inch street tires in wide sizes for the vette almost like it was in style to run gigantic front brakes and 1 inch taller wheels in the rear.
18  General / Technical Help / Re: 2017 street tires on: February 10, 2017, 05:59:20 PM
 Looks like the updated Rival-s v 1.5 are on tire rack website. Some have been changed from W to V speed ratings to adjust for higher loads.

Does anyone know the date the tire construction changed ?
19  General / Technical Help / 2017 street tires on: February 07, 2017, 05:22:45 AM

 The Re71r is proven and unchanged for 2017

 The Rival-s is the other "Top Dog" changes have been made in 255 and smaller to improve turn in and transitional response. I'm still not sure exactly how to tell if your getting the new tires. Here is an explanation From brgoodrichracing :

 http://www.bfgoodrichracing.com/streetautocross-bfgoodrich-g-force-rival-s/

 Grassroots :

https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/articles/street-tire-shootout-class-2016/

The Hankook RS4 are showing on the tire rack website as available on 3-17-17 not much is known but they appear to be lightweight and have a very wide tread width. The tread depth also starts at 8.9/32 which is pretty deep maybe to meet the 200 treadwear standard ? Most likely to be shaved award.
20  General / Classifieds / fx1 Pro corbeau seats For Sale ! on: January 29, 2017, 02:53:59 PM
 Selling the alcantera seats out of my vette they are in good shape and will surely make your car fast.

 Race seats don't agree with me on long trips. These do a great job of holding you in around the corners and keeping you conscious of your body mass index. The suede is nice and sticky and keeps you from sliding about. They have the little holes by your hips, between your legs and over your shoulders for full 5 point harness goodness.

asking 400$ for both but could be interested in trades like lightweight 15x6 4x100 wheels, stock c6,c7 or viper seats that recline.

Decription from website "http://corbeau.com/fx1-pro.html" :

The FX1 Pro racing seat features composite fiberglass technology. The FX1 Pro racing seat comes in three different sizes, the FX1 Pro, FX1, and FX1 Wide. The FX1 Pro combines comfort, performance, and safety at an absolutely unbeatable price. Designed with an emphasis on comfort, this seat is one of the most comfortable race seats you will ever sit in. One of the unique things about the FX1 Pro is it can be bottom or side mounted. Most shell seats are side mount only, which means you have to side mount the seat and bolt it directly to the floor, eliminating the ability to slide forward and back. With the FX1 Pro you can still bottom mount the seat to Corbeau brackets and sliders, which obviously makes the seat much more practical, especially in a daily driver. High wear patches are strategically placed to protect your seat from abuse in the high wear areas. The FX1 Pro comes with three removable insert cushions, one in the back, one in the base, and one under the thighs. The FX1 Pro racing seat is available in cloth material with leatherette high wear patches or black microsuede with leather high wear patches. As a rule of thumb, the FX1 Pro racing seat will fit up to a 36 inch waist, the FX1 (cloth only) will fit up to a 38 inch waist and the FX1 Wide (black cloth only) will fit up to a 42 inch waist.

added weight size info for fitment last picture.

I should get the mr2 wheels done before next season !

Looking forward to sorting this out.
23  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: 9-4-16 event. on: September 11, 2016, 06:53:57 PM
I believe your right Bill that is where most the v8 muscle cars go while the car is stock they ran it bumped to keep their 'SP' points. I don't think it matters to Carl or Amanda esp and fsp are street prepared year points classes. The only thing it would effect would be their Volvo/fiat points. The Cadillac is obviously neither a Volvo or fiat. Correcting the classes will have no negative impact on their points.

This was a good topic, I'm reminded every time I autocross with another club just how well we run things here at VMSC .
