Actually, the Camaro is flogging me. I need to resurrect the Vega. Good to hear from you!

Good to hear from you Michael. I wondered where you ran, (swam?), off to.

It is in my case. (Bill).

Will do. Thanks!

Opened with a different browser. I am supposed to be in the masters class, though. # 63 ESP.

Can't open it.

You have to be an automotive "insider". In other words, no tickets are actually sold to the general public. I went in 2014 with my nephew who worked for a paint distributor. There are probably people that can help you get in.

Yep. The raceway parking lot near Laburnum Ave.

I sent photos to your email addresses. Too large to post here.

Sorry I haven't responded. I'll try to post some pics this weekend.
11  General / Classifieds / Open trailer on: March 27, 2018, 06:13:24 AM
 I've bought a bigger trailer, and I'm looking to sell my old one. It has a good history with the club having hauled several members cars at one time or another. (you'll never realize how many friends you have until you own one!). It's hauled Jeeps, several RX-7's, Corvettes, Mustangs, Camaros, Miatas, a pair of Spitfires, one Morgan, BMW's of many flavors, almost all of my stuff, tractors, a backhoe, a roof mounted HVAC unit, lumber, tree stumps, and scrap metal, and more. A favorite was helping deliver Engelberts "Froggy". Payment was in the form of beer and gas money. (My standard fee). Anyway, it's a well constructed homebuilt 16' with 3' dovetail. 7,000# mobile home axles, with repacked, or new bearings. Newer tires, 2 5/16 coupling, spare tire and I plan to paint it. It has hauled some truly incredible loads and tows great. Currently has a brake issue. Right now $1000.00 will take it, if I repair the brakes, and get it inspected the price will go up substantially.

Chester. I can PM his phone number if you want to talk with him.
13  General / Classifieds / Formula Vee, Vee's, or complete team. on: March 01, 2018, 10:29:52 AM
 A friend has 2 Vee's for sale. One is pretty new with somewhere around $8,000 in the chassis alone. the other, older car was bought for parts, will run, but needs brake, clutch, and fuel lines flushed a good freshening up. Also has a 20, or 24 foot,(I forget), goose neck trailer, with heat, AC, and bunks. He's asking $1,000 for the older car, $4,000 for the newer car, (with a fresh engine), or $10,000 for all of it. And there is quite a bit. Has log books. Race, or autocross them. His son raced, but now has a family, and has moved on. His name is Rob Ashley.

Most motorcycle shops will let you try some on.

CAM, E/SP, something like that.
16  General / Technical Help / Re: Any driveshaft/axle shops around Richmond? on: January 01, 2018, 08:04:28 AM
Standard Auto parts on Commerce Road.
17  General / Technical Help / Re: Looking for cheap track tires on: November 30, 2017, 07:22:37 AM
 The best I've had on my Camaro were the NT01's. I've used Kumho Victoracers, V710's, Hoosier A3's, A6's, and the NT05's I hate. Like Justin was saying they stick very well, and last for ever. I had them on the Monza I drove in my SCCA schools. They showed very, very little wear. Dollar for dollar, I think they're the best tire out there. I'll probably go back to them.
18  Events / Autocross / Re: Ice driving... on: November 28, 2017, 07:44:00 AM
They're allowed. Or they were back in 2012 or so. Plans for next year are up in the air.....a new car, a different car that I already own, or some work on the Camaro.

Great course. I'd like to try it again with good tires, and my head on straight!
20  Events / Autocross / Ice driving... on: November 20, 2017, 06:44:23 AM
 I have to be honest...I have never been comfortable autocrossing my Camaro. I've been competing with it since 2003, and haven't been happy with the way I've driven it in more than 15 events, (and there are a lot of events in that length of time!). It has 1 or 2 PAX FTD's to it's credit, and many top 10 indexed finishes over the years. But yesterday?Huh? Geez. Four seasons on tires that weren't real good to start with, and the discovery of yet another broken front sway bar pillar bracket made for a handful. (Once I got it home). I did notice the course workers hiding behind poles when I was on the course, and I don't blame them. Smiley On the plus side, I'm ready for winter driving. I turned 14,000 miles on the car driving home.

Great. They're all yours.
22  General / Classifieds / Free racing posters. on: November 10, 2017, 12:24:29 PM
I'm tossing out some old racing posters. I know there is a Stroh's Capri, a Camel GT, Raybestos NASCAR, Wally Hilldebrand's Indy Car and several others. They are not perfect. I can bring to next weeks event if anyone wants them.
23  General / Classifieds / Re: Need a Small Block Chevrolet engine and transmission or 1957 Chevy parts on: November 06, 2017, 06:14:10 AM
The 2.02 heads are expensive and hard to find. A set of "Vortec" heads will flow as well, and can be found anywhere. They will require a different intake and valve cover, however. Back in "the day", 283's powered an assortment of vehicles in every sort of motorsport. In NHRA stock classes, I've seen them in the 11's and 12's in tri-five Chevies, and later full sized cars. A tall rear, and a 4L80E trans will make it pretty quick. Lots of books on the subject out there.

Anyone local?

Well aware of the reason behind running by class, (something I campaigned for when we went to PAX for points, to no avail). However, when I ran with other clubs that ran by heat, you could run in another heat. However, in the event there was a weather advantage, your runs did not count. All I wanted was clarification on what we were doing.
