101  Events / Autocross / Re: OctoberCross 10 and 11 Oct. on: October 06, 2015, 12:57:15 PM
Gene, I've sent you a PM.
102  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Yet another CAM based class. on: October 05, 2015, 08:01:28 AM
There are some very serious CAM cars out there. Mary Pozzi beat Al Unser Jr. at the solo nationals in CAM-T this year. So it's I remember when ST classes were started, and the talk of a muscle car type class for engine swaps etc. When Good Guys started having autocrosses at their events, and USCCA came along, SCCA took notice and CAM got started. I like the idea, but think they could get by with CAM-Traditional, and the new STP class. 
103  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Yet another CAM based class. on: October 03, 2015, 07:41:39 AM
I've read and re-read the rules regarding CAM and get more confused each time. Kind of like the way ST took off from the original ST class. Remember that? IIRC no "R" compounds, no turbos, super chargers, twin cam engines limited to 2 liters, single cam engines to 2.6 liters. Then it exploded.

 Now there's STP, or "Street Touring Ponycar" class.
105  Events / Autocross / Hope to make 9-27 event. on: September 23, 2015, 06:30:10 PM
 I signed up for the event but will be in Charlotte until some time Saturday. In the event that I don't get in until late, I will not be at the event. Hopefully, we'll make it back at a reasonable hour.

 We have an event next weekend. If possible, you could tow it over there and let folks see it. Just a thought.
107  General / Classifieds / Re: 1979 Fiat x1/9 race car on: September 17, 2015, 01:45:21 PM
 I would think with Dominion Raceway being built in Thornburg, selling it should get easier. At least I'm hoping so with my ITA car. IF I wasn't under a self imposed "auto and toy purchase moratorium", I'd scoop it up. Best of luck with your sale!
108  General / Classifieds / Re: 1979 Fiat x1/9 race car on: September 16, 2015, 12:51:09 PM
Wow. If you look under, "Autos and Autosports", I posted the topic "CL racecars". Yours is one I mentioned. Yours is a great deal, but I've almost finished reassembling one that I blew several years ago. You're right, the logbook is a huge selling point!
109  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: CL race cars. on: September 02, 2015, 06:49:25 AM
Also a 914 roller for around $2000.00. With logbook.
110  General / Autos and Autosport / CL race cars. on: September 01, 2015, 08:30:44 PM
A quick search of race cars on CL turned up an IT/C Fiat X1/9 for $2700.00 with trailer, a spec Miata for around $9000.00, a Honda endurance car with a blown motor for $500.00, and a couple of Legends cars. Plenty of quarter milers, and oval stuff also.
111  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Optima Charlotte 2015 on: August 12, 2015, 06:15:36 PM
Great pictures, thanks for posting. Even saw a hit-n-miss engine in there. There were a load of USCCA cars at SEMA. My favorite was hemi powered Valiant re-badged as a "Violent". Sounds like you did really well, and it looks like a fun series. What are the tire rules?
112  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Rules interpretation on: August 05, 2015, 09:57:35 AM
SCCA, (like most sanctioning bodies), will only allow us to do what they say we can. In other words, (from a conversation I had years ago), "Unless they say you can, you can't". I believe we can thank the late, great Smokey Yunick for that.
113  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Gene.....you have mail..... on: August 01, 2015, 02:26:55 PM
PM sent, Gene.
114  General / Open Forum / Re: Interested in eventually getting into HPDE on: July 16, 2015, 03:22:24 PM
I'm not sure, but I think anti-freeze is a no-no. I had "water wetter" in my car when it was on the track.
115  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Can't make the event on the 19th. on: July 16, 2015, 03:20:31 PM
I'll be there on the 26th. I grabbed the S/P book at the last event to do a little research. Do you need it prior to this weeks event?
116  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Can't make the event on the 19th. on: July 16, 2015, 09:18:41 AM
 I won't be able to help with tech at the autocross this weekend, due to a prior commitment.
117  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Tech Inspectors Needed for VMP 6/28 on: June 24, 2015, 06:23:27 AM
Gene, if Bernard is running, (and you see him prior to the event), please send that blue notebook with him. It'll help with classing.

118  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Tech Inspectors Needed for VMP 6/28 on: June 22, 2015, 06:24:27 PM
I'll be there.
119  Events / Autocross / Re: NASA at VMP. Cancelled? on: June 21, 2015, 07:43:18 PM
That's what I assumed, but their event was still listed.
120  Events / Autocross / NASA at VMP. Cancelled? on: June 21, 2015, 07:50:34 AM
I was just on MAE and saw that NASA had an event at VMP on the 28th. I'm assuming they cancelled. Or are we running together? Just curious.
121  General / Classifieds / Re: Take off tires on: June 13, 2015, 07:15:31 AM
You could do a burn out until Rapture in a rear drive car and not achieve any front camber:). Pretty sure there was no rule against it when I did it in the 90's.
122  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: MEP event. on: June 12, 2015, 07:21:02 AM
Oops! Yep, it's this weekend I can't attend. Good thing I didn't plan on running!
123  General / Classifieds / Re: Take off tires on: June 11, 2015, 07:25:21 PM
When I drove a car that I could dial a lot of negative camber into, rotating front to rear was not an option. I had the tires shaved with more rubber taken off towards the inside, shaping them somewhat like a cone. Since they were directional, I simply didn't rotate them. Until the end of the year and I was too cheap to buy new tires......
124  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / MEP event. on: June 11, 2015, 07:21:01 PM
Gene, I won't be able to make this event. Just a heads up for tech.
125  Results / Autocross / Re: Results 31 May 2015 on: June 02, 2015, 06:47:57 PM
That's how it was all those years ago. If a competitor didn't work or have someone work for them, (without the permission of the OD or other club official), they had DQ beside their name. No times posted. But like many other rules that aren't needed with any real frequency, we become a bit complacent and assume everyone will play nice. Mention it at the drivers meeting and enforce it.
