Thanks David, I'll contact him and see. That also might be more than I need. I like the idea of a corner balance party though, it would be cool to hang and learn while others are doing their cars. Many hands would make light work for something like that too. It seems like it could be time consuming though, not sure how many cars can get done in a day.

Just wondering if anyone has 4 corner scales or know where some are available to use cheap. I called PAS and they do a full race balance and alignment for about a grand. I'm sure they do a great job but a little more than I need, just looking for a decent shade tree balance.

I'm in as long as the price isn't too crazy.
29  General / Autos and Autosport / Dominion Raceway on: January 09, 2015, 05:32:23 PM
Has anyone looked in to getting a track day at Dominion Raceway? They are taking reservations and supposed to be open in spring. The course is two miles and 14 turns, sounds like fun.

I wish this would have happened years ago! I live ten minutes from there and am trying to move away soon.
31  General / Technical Help / Re: E46 M3 recall and fix classing question... on: April 15, 2014, 04:51:34 AM
Ha good one Chris! The miata will dominate at the AX but I'd still be embarassed to drive it around town. (not bashing anyone, just sayin!)

Thats is a good reason to avoid the M3, I'm leaning towards an Infiniti G35 coupe manual now, cheaper to buy, own and no frame issues!

32  General / Technical Help / E46 M3 recall and fix classing question... on: April 09, 2014, 06:46:10 AM
I am thinking of buying an E46 M3 but they have a bad problem with the subframe cracking in which there was a recall for, but only a small window to get it repaired. If I get one, obvously i plan to run it hard but I want to stay in the stock class but chassis bracing bumps it to prepped. I done a lot of searching but it still seems to be a grey area. I'll never go to nationals nor will probably win the top spot to where it would be contestable anyways, but I just dont want to be trying hide anything.

Thanks for any input!

That's what I was looking for, thanks!
34  General / Autos and Autosport / 2014 stock cars by class?? on: March 22, 2014, 05:07:16 PM
Does anyone know where to find the the stock car classing for this year? I've searched but all I can find is talk about the tires and other rule changes. I'm decent what my next car is going to be and the class it will be makes a difference!
35  Results / Autocross / Re: Season Results? on: February 26, 2014, 11:50:44 AM
I noticed a blank 5th spot under "modified" class. Does that mean if one more person that was in that class would have shown up they would have a trophy just for being there?
36  Events / Other Events / Re: Dyno Day on: January 25, 2014, 01:54:55 PM
Beth: That dyno is only for 2WD cars just so you know. I don't think the Carrera 4 will work.

You are quite correct.  I am an idiot (who should wait until fully awake before posting on forums).

An enthusiastic idiot, however.   Grin
Maybe I should bring the Passport......

Can you lock the center diff and pull the front driveshafts?

Thinking about doing that on my Land Cruiser and see if I can put down 100!
37  Events / Other Events / Re: Drag strip - 10/25/2013? on: October 29, 2013, 11:46:57 AM
Wish I had checked first, drove down there for nothing. Too cold? And they decided the day of? Sounds like a weak excuse.
38  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: SCCA approves new Stock class rules on: October 12, 2013, 08:30:30 AM
So Bill, does this mark the end of the f-stock terror!?
I wonder how long before Hoosier, Kumho, and the rest develop a "purpose built" 140, or 200 UTQG tire for competition. I've thought for years SCCA should let us run on anything you can mount on stock wheels. R-comps, racing tires, snow tires, whatever floats your boat. I'll figure out the tires when I figure out what I'm going to drive.
39  Events / Other Events / Re: Drag strip - 10/25/2013? on: October 10, 2013, 04:37:17 PM
I was thinking about checking it out. Its been a while and I got a buddy that might go too.

Hey Gunny, most of the guys on the racing forums (either with Vettes or F bodies with Vette brakes) are running Brembo blanks or Raybestos. I've been using Napa premium for several years and almost 60K miles, no racing just AX and lots of street miles.

Rock Auto has a ton of options including some AC delco's for $40 a piece, if you're going cheap, might as well get something better than AZ!

heres one of mine in the aerio. having fuel slosh issues with the much stickier toyos on the first dry race day. Any quick solutions to fix this? ran around half a tank of gas for this event.

Maybe a new fuel tank, I used to have a car that chugged <1/4 tank on hard accel and it turned out to be cracked baffles in the tank.
42  Pictures and Media / Pictures and Media from Events / Re: Dyno Day videos on: March 05, 2013, 07:35:54 AM
Looks like you're breaking it in well, nice torque line too.
43  Pictures and Media / Pictures and Media from Events / Re: Dyno Day videos on: February 27, 2013, 06:08:57 AM
So what were the results??
44  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day Sign-up on: February 17, 2013, 03:16:15 PM
Sorry, I have to drop out. Too many things going on!
45  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day Sign-up on: February 15, 2013, 07:31:09 AM
So whats the process, just show up whenever with $50 and get in line?
46  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day Sign-up on: February 12, 2013, 09:10:55 AM
I'm pretty sure I can make it.

I havent heard about a 4wd dyno in F'burg, if you know more please tell me, I'd love to throw my suv on there and see if i'm getting 100 to the pavement!
47  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: VMSC - My first impressions and special thanks. on: August 03, 2012, 07:50:16 AM
I thought it was awesome how you broke, fixed it in the middle of the road and kept on racing! And looking at your collection, it's no wonder why you're "Mitsu-Dave"!
48  Results / Autocross / Re: 07/28-07/29/2012 Results on: July 30, 2012, 05:45:56 AM
Huge thanks to Bill and the rest of the instructors on Saturday, ton of improvement!
