I agree with Shane on this. Camaros up to '92 are CAM-T. I thought the reason we ran by class was to alleviate any weather advantage in a given class. Unless running in another heat gave Courtney an advantage he should be in CAM-T. That's what I've always thought anyway.

A big enough zip tie will hold it as well.

Thanks, Gene.
29  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Annual tech/permanent number..... on: March 22, 2017, 05:12:41 AM
 I asked the other day whether or not I could have annual tech done to my car this Saturday. I will not be running the event, but would like to have tech performed, if at all possible. My other question is in regards to permanent numbers. A quick scan through the numbers on MAE didn't show me,(Bill Lloyd), or my number, (63). Is there any way to correct this?

I'm unable to make either event this weekend, but would like to have the Camaro teched for this year. Is it possible to have that alone done this Saturday?

I found where I asked this same question in June of '14 under the "VMSC Business". At that time, many people felt that riding was fine for instructional purposes, and nothing more. Maybe we've evolved to a point where that isn't the case any more. I was however, called down for not stopping the competitor I mentioned who was wearing flip flops on his runs. In my defense, I was running the heat I saw him and thought he was simply riding. Anyway, since he WAS driving and didn't have any issues, I feel that flip flops should be considered legal footwear during competition.

If we're changing a club's bylaw, is a membership vote required?
33  General / Open Forum / Re: Riding with your co-driver? on: February 21, 2017, 03:42:26 PM
Does the SCCA allow it?
34  General / Open Forum / Re: Riding with your co-driver? on: February 20, 2017, 06:37:04 AM
The original question is whether or not drivers of the same car can ride with each other. If you have more than two people co-driving a car, can they ride too? Not being clever, but it will come up eventually. Riding with a beginner, or to help someone familiarize themselves with the course shouldn't be an issue, and I'm glad we softened our stance on it. But again, if we're going to abandon the rule completely, be sure it's publicized to every competitor.

I offered to ride with a novice at VMP some time back. It was his first event, and he couldn't find his way around the course, his buddies were there and he was embarrassed. I was told by the OD that I would forfeit my next run. That was fine, because it was the rule, even though I stood to learn absolutely nothing from the experience. It is an advantage, especially in a competitive two driver car. Think about it...two already competitive drivers, sharing information and chipping away at a what already looks like an insurmountable lead to the rest of the cars in the class. And while Chris makes a good point regarding data-logging, Those numbers are from what YOU just did, not experiencing the car on the course in the hands of a driver equal to yourself. We don't "really" enforce the rule now so we may as well do away with it. Just make sure it well publicized so the timing trailer/1st vice isn't overrun with questions, and complaints. Just my .02 worth.

The NT-01's aren't legal in street, or CAM. I think their tw is 100. The NT-05's are legal, but suck. I couldn't find anything that would fit the Camaro's wheels properly.

Sold. Headed to New Jersey for a new career in Vintage Racing.
38  General / Classifieds / Re: ITA Chevy Monza for sale. Now with pictures! on: January 26, 2017, 10:01:51 PM
That's what I thought it said. Looks like it's sold to a guy in New Jersey, anyway.
39  General / Classifieds / Re: ITA Chevy Monza for sale. Now with pictures! on: January 25, 2017, 08:32:03 AM
I've posted the car to Racingjunk and Craigslist Richmond with lots of pictures. I'll try and post the pics here, but I keep getting a message that the file is too large.

 I didn't notice the poll at the top of the post. But yes, it should be moved and I for one would like to see the results of that poll. Again, sorry for the misunderstanding, and I'm sure Nick, (who probably missed the poll also), is as well.

I just now noticed the poll. No idea how it got there.

Not sure what the question regarding a "poll" refers to, but Nick autocrossed with us years ago. I was simply catching up.

A "track-day" car? Looks good, but why are you selling?
44  General / Classifieds / Re: ZR1 wheels 17x9.5 with Hoosier P275/40ZR17 A3S05 (set of 4) on: December 10, 2016, 04:40:42 PM
Yep, it's Bill. I bought, (then blew up), a '78 Monza ITA road racer. It's for sale in the classified around here. Ran an '02 Z-28 from '03 until now. Fairly successful with it until about 5 years ago. Small brakes, a lousy LSD, not enough power rendered it pretty uncompetitive. Still fun, but not very competitive.

Do you still have that Monte Carlo? I used to run the Vega in H/S way back. I hope to get it going again some day.

Is this Nick?
