Two slots left.
54  General / Open Forum / Re: Dyno Day on: February 25, 2016, 07:37:12 AM
LOL. Sorry you won't make it, but thanks for letting me know. Bathrooms are money pits, sort of like race cars, but not nearly as much fun.

We are at 17 cars registered. Kevin's limit is 20 so if you can't make it, please let me know, and if you are on the fence, now is the time to commit. I have also now publicized it to the C&C crowd so I expect the last few slots to go quickly.

We are up to 10 cars so we only need one more to secure the $50 price.

Kevin says no duallys and no diesels. List the particulars for the wagon and I will substitute it.

Thanks.

It is time for VMSC's annual Dyno day. It will be on Saturday, March 5, at EFI-Performance LLC,
4104 Eubank Rd., Richmond, Va 23231. Kevin Adolph will be our host as in the past. The first pulls begin at 10:00.

Pricing for 3 pulls with A/F ratio upon request depends on the total number of participants we have. The price schedule is:

1-5 - $65
6-10 - $55
11+ - $50

In recent years, we have not had any problems exceeding the 11 participants required to get the $50 price. Please respond to this thread or send email to me @ ogburn <at> gmail [dot] com if you want to participate. Please include your first and last name, and the year, make, and model of the car that will run on the Dyno as well as any additional info that would be helpful to Kevin to be prepared for you. For example, if your '94 Miata has a twin turbo LSx, Kevin would probably like to know. Specific questions about running on the Dyno should be sent to Kevin at kevin (at) flimflamspeed <dot> com.

Observers are always welcome. See you on March 5.

We talked about at the last meeting. I gave Kevin some dates and am waiting to hear back from him. The new location is in Sandston at EFI Performance. It is the same Dynojet dyno that was at Performance Autosport.  http://www.efi-performance.com

The same question was posted twice in two separate topics. I have merged them into this one.

David
64  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: EX35 For Autocross? on: January 03, 2016, 10:18:14 PM
Rule 3.1 of the SCCA Solo Rules addresses it. You need to find/calculate a SSF (Static Stability Factor) value for the vehicle and see if it is 1.30 or greater.

The rule is here: http://cdn.growassets.net/user_files/scca/downloads/000/003/742/2015-5-19_SCCA_Solo_Rules_book_online_reduced.pdf?1432652746. See pages 33-34.

Interesting. Thanks, James.

66  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: tire shopping need help class car and tire permitted on: October 17, 2015, 09:55:27 AM
Gene knows the more modified classes better than I do, but I think SSM is the right class. There is a minimum required weight, but given that you have a full interior, etc., I don't think you would have a problem meeting it.

Here is the weight rule.

Minimum Weight Calculations (without driver): FWD: 1350 lbs. + 125 lbs. per liter
RWD: 1600 lbs. + 200 lbs. per liter
AWD: 1600 lbs. + 300 lbs. per liter
Supercharged or Turbocharged SSM engines: Add 1.4L to the actual displacement.
Rear wheel weight greater than 51%: +25 lbs. per liter
Tire width 275 mm or less (all): -200 lbs.
Regardless of the weight formulas above, no car will be required to weigh more than 2900 lbs.

Wheel and tire size in this class are unlimited. I think you have to run a DOT legal tire, which for most people means Hoosier A7s.

All of this is subject to check by Gene.

Ok. The ear bar ones are rare and possibly collectible!

69  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Yet another CAM based class. on: October 04, 2015, 07:06:26 PM
I don't understand CAM either and I certainly don't understand why they add STP right after adding CAM. They were already plenty of places to run pony cars.

A '13 M3 registered in HS. I moved him to FS.

71  General / Classifieds / Re: Wanted 17" Tires Used on: October 01, 2015, 09:33:42 PM
I have 235/40-17s that were the autocross tires for my MINI. They are Direzzas, are currently mounted, and have wear right at the ear bars. I also have 3 215/45-17 Michelin Primacy HP tires with 1-2k miles on them.

David
72  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Yet another CAM based class. on: October 01, 2015, 07:47:42 PM
The permitted level of prep, and therefore the cost to be competitive, varies very considerably between Street, ST, and SP. The number of drivers in Street classes seems to be up since we went from Stock to Street, despite the many dire predictions. We had 63 drivers in CS at Nats this year. I am told that was a record for a Stock/Street class.

David
73  General / Classifieds / Re: Wanted 17" Tires Used on: September 30, 2015, 08:01:28 AM
I have some 235/40-17s. I will check tonight to see how many and what kind. I probably have some Continue slicks in that size, or do you just want street tires?

David
74  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Rules interpretation on: September 29, 2015, 10:46:09 AM
No interior trim can be removed in STS (or any ST class). However, you can replace the seats with much lighter seats. I believe there is a minimum weight. It is in the ST rules.
75  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Factory Five Cobra Build on: August 17, 2015, 07:34:10 AM
Nicely done. That time spent will save lots of time down the road.

Here is what you really need.
