screw the mods. I need to save for a Z06!  Grin or maybe what Mark has on the other hand I really like horsepower. I'll stick with a big _ss V8.

I'll work on fixing the classifications.
I just started doing this and its a bit complicated.
Sorry for the mistakes, it will get better.

I would like to Thank: Gunny and Justin for getting the the results out so quick.

If anyone would like to try their hand at designing a course, we are looking for OD's for most of the autocrosses from May thru November.

You can sign up with Lonnie or any of the board members. We would love to have new course designs to challange everyone.

It is a great experience for everyone to try. If it is your first time or you just need a couple of extra hands, I am sure that you can find some experienced people to help . I am always willing.

Get involved with the club we can use the help and the new set of eyes. Don't forget the club meetings every 3rd Thursday.

I'd like to try and do some course design! The v8's need a representative for course design Smiley

My Vette
HP=347 at 6000rpm
Torque=340 at 4500rpm
I'm curious to see how fast my rear tires were spinning. The guy who did the pulls said about 175mph.

iRacing is is way cool. I'm in a league where we all race on friday nights.
Oval racing in trucks. Man going is circles is tough.

Thanks fellas
as always the information you guys provide is very helpful!

663  General / Open Forum / racing slick storage on: December 06, 2009, 05:50:17 PM
Just a quick question
I have a garage in which I can store my Hoosier slicks. The Garage does not have heat. Should I store my tires in the house. Also I have read that slicks should be bagged. It that true?

Guy's, Gal's, Racers, Spectators, Ride Alongers, and last but not least the event staff!

Thanks for a great and fun season! Being that this was my first season I can honestly say thanks to all! I learned so much about my car and how to drive it because I was around people that love this sport and were happy to share their knowledge! I hope as I get more experience I can do the same for the new Auto-X'er.  If you go back over my season and look at my placings each week compared to my last race you can see how I got better every event!
I remember the first race. My foot was shakin so bad on the clutch I thought I was going to stall the car at the start  Cheesy (Good thing I had 400 HP and lucky I only had to shift once!) Oh and I got the rookie trophy on that race! What fun that was. Then I remember the second race, John H kinda took me under his wing and did a walk thru with me. He gave me information and feedback to questions that made me faster! Wow cool stuff. Then I got to ride along with him in his vette (you can prolly still see my finger prints on his door handle, I thought I was going to rip that thing out!) I can go on and on but really all I wanted to say is a simple thanks!
I had a great time this season and I look forward to running and being a part of VMSC next season.

667  General / Open Forum / What do you do in the autocross off season? on: October 17, 2009, 09:27:13 PM
Before I did any auto-x I sim raced alot. A whole lot!!! Anyhow it's starting to get dark early and starting to get cold. So today I dusted off m good ole simulator, fired up iRacing and did some laps at silverstone in a prototype car! I forgot how much fun sim racing is. Anyhow here is a shot of my simulator! ECCI Wheel with all the bells and whistles (! a cockpit made out of PVC pipe with a Honda seat! I also have some butt Kickers ( to simulate bumps and going over rumble strips! A big ass monitor and I have a shifter I can add to it. I use paddle shifter most of the time. This along with iRacing is as real as it gets without being real. All I'm missing are the g forces and I can crash a million dollar car without any worries!
Any other sim racers out there?

Dunno How smooth I'll be but your more than welcome.
My best runs are at the end so thats when you want to ride along.

669  Results / Autocross / Re: BRR-VMSC Challenge Results on: October 05, 2009, 08:10:45 PM
Hey dont forget me, here is a vid of my best run!
If ever you guys get asked for a ride along and you don't feel like it send them my way! I like scaring them for a bit! I laugh and talk during my runs! It's fun for me to watch them back.  Grin . placing is not to much a concern for me! I just like to go fast and have fun. (who don't know that!) and if I can give a ride along to get them hooked then so be it (I did my little part in promoting the sport). (the more weight the better! LOL)
Fun Stuff

To all,
I had a great time! The course really drove different than it walked! (to me anyways) So I learned a lot today and had a blast trying to keep up. I'm uploading pictures now and its going to take a while. I will post a link tomorrow.

672  General / Open Forum / Re: Hello everybody on: October 03, 2009, 02:18:18 PM
Welcome aboard.
I just started auto crossing this year and it has been awesome. I started with street tires on my car, talked to alot of folks and drove as fast as I felt comfortable always keeping in mind what the experienced drives were telling me. I also used the times shaggin cones as a live classroom. I watch the other beginners and I watch the more senior drivers and began to learn the difference in the way they drive. Funny that the really fast guys look like there going slow and not working to hard and the slower ones are working the wheel hard and look fast but there times are slower. Anyhow just like the rest said. Come on out and try it. Work on having fun and the rest will come. To me I can read all day about this stuff but until I got on the course it just didn't sink in. Best way in my opinion to get fast is to have seat time.

Good Luck!

Hope to see you at the track soon
