Damn, that does look good.  It says it's closed now though Sad
402  Events / Autocross / Re: Permanent Number Registration on: March 04, 2012, 06:31:50 PM
The issue has to do with us adding permanent number holders manually last year, which means they were not associated with that users account.  I've removed the hold which saved last year's permanent numbers for those folks this year, but have published a list of those numbers on the registration page.

If you had a number last year and had any issues registering, go ahead and do it now.  If you are picking a new number, don't pick it from the list on the registration page or I may change it on you!

Did you find low compression on those two cylinders?  Just wondering if you saw any signs prior to the teardown.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the practice auto-x soon!  In the meantime, if anyone comes across any clean TVR 2500M's, 1.8L NA Miatas, or 89-91 325i/is's...let me know!

I don't like the $6,800 asking price, but this Miata does have some nice stuff on it.  And an asking price is just that, right...an asking price.  Who knows what he'd let it go for.
405  General / Open Forum / Re: New to Richmond on: February 28, 2012, 07:20:51 PM
Great news!  Good luck finding something.  I'll keep my eyes open, too.
406  Events / Autocross / Re: MyAutoEvents Registration on: February 24, 2012, 04:10:28 AM
Registration for the Practice Autocross and first event at MEP will open tomorrow.
407  Events / Other Events / Re: Annual VMSC Dyno Day on: February 20, 2012, 03:48:55 PM
Well, I didn't have time to put my headers in so I'll pas on dynoing the Caprice.  I'll still be there though.
408  Events / Autocross / Re: Permanent Number Registration on: February 17, 2012, 08:29:45 PM
The issue is that someone manually added your permanent numbers last year, so they aren't associated with your account.  The only way around this is going to be manual, through MAE support.  Dennis and Marc - yours should be fixed, see if you can register now.

If anyone else has an issue, please let me know.  I'll batch up the folks with problems and submit them together.  I've already instructed people not to manually add anyone to the permanent number event so this shouldn't happen again.
409  Events / Autocross / Re: Permanent Number Registration on: February 17, 2012, 12:43:06 PM
We can't have two separate permanent number events and we can't manually merge two events that are created separately (or enforce who could sign up for the one that we specify is for last year's number holders).  I've emailed the MAE support staff/guy and will see what he says.
410  Events / Other Events / Re: VMSC Tire Mounting Day on: February 17, 2012, 09:58:26 AM
I've ordered my tires and will be there on the 17th.
411  Events / Autocross / Re: Permanent Number Registration on: February 17, 2012, 08:07:40 AM
I find this very strange.  I made a minor change to the start date of the event, if you don't mind trying again and letting me know the outcome I would appreciate it.

I was able to register for my number, despite also having it in last year's permanent number list (which is what I was thinking was causing the problem).  If this fails for some reason, we'll remove the number restriction (using last year's numbers to hold numbers for this year's signup) and send an email to last year's permanent number holders telling them to sign up quickly.  Removing the number restriction means anyone could sign up for your number, which is why I don't want to do it without trying a couple other things first though.
412  Events / Other Events / Re: Richmond Autoshow on: February 13, 2012, 11:33:26 AM
Aww, shoot.  I'll be traveling on the 22nd.  I guess that means the wagon won't be in the auto show.  Surely, it would have been the classiest car there  Grin
413  Events / Autocross / Re: Permanent Number Registration on: February 12, 2012, 05:13:51 AM
I'm using last year's permanent number list to reserve the numbers for this year's signup...if that makes any sense.  As a result, you have to use the same email address as last year.  I'll PM yours to you and let me know if using that email address doesn't work.
414  General / Technical Help / Re: Tires for 2012, your input please! on: February 09, 2012, 04:55:30 PM
I don't have a direct comparison between the A6s and R6s, but know people have autocrossed on R6s and they seemed to be fine.  Obviously not as sticky, but I would expect them to be gripier than a street tire, like the Star Specs.
415  Events / Other Events / Re: VMSC Tire Mounting Day on: February 07, 2012, 07:12:44 PM
Also, if you want some cheap, lightly used R-compounds, contact John Berget of http://www.jbracingtires.net/ and ask what he's got in stock.  I've had the best luck calling him, his number is on the website.
416  Events / Other Events / VMSC Tire Mounting Day on: February 07, 2012, 07:07:59 PM
We've scheduled Saturday, March 17th at Murray Automotive, just over the Powhatan border to mount and balance tires for the upcoming season.  The shop has all the right equipment to do any wheel/tire combo you would have properly.  The owner is opening up just for us on Saturday and will charge a special rate of $10 per tire to mount and balance.  So, order your tires in time and we'll see you out there.

When: Saturday March 17th, 9am until at least 11am
Where: Murray Automotive, 1731 Douthit Ct, Powhatan
What: tire mounting and balancing, $10ea

In case you're wondering how to get there, it is super easy.  Douthit Ct is right off of Midlothian Tpke/RT 60, ~3mi West of 288.  If you plan on attending, please post here so we can get an idea of how many people there will be.  I'll be there, if you have any questions or need to contact me the day of, I can be reached at (215) 378-1747.
417  Events / Other Events / Re: Annual VMSC Dyno Day on: February 07, 2012, 06:51:14 PM
I'll dyno the wagon again if I can get my headers on before then.  Finding the time will be tricky, but I've just ordered the last of the parts I think I'll need.

Also, I feel I should mention that club attendance points will be awarded.  If you don't know how points work, read this.
418  Events / Other Events / Re: Annual VMSC Dyno Day on: February 04, 2012, 05:05:02 AM
This is cool, I may just do it.  Cost for pulls?

We've traditionally been charged $60 for 3 pulls.
419  Events / Other Events / Re: Annual VMSC Dyno Day on: February 03, 2012, 01:33:21 PM
No need to bring a high HP car either, we've had Miatas, Civics, my wagon...all kinds of stuff at the dyno days.

Also, definitely fun to spectate, hang out and see what kind of power everything makes.
420  General / Open Forum / Re: Garages, you say? on: February 01, 2012, 04:24:29 AM
I don't have a solution, but where in/around Richmond are you staying, how close do you want the garage to be, and what locations have you been looking at so far?  I would imagine the farther you got from Richmond, the cheaper you could find space.
421  General / Technical Help / Re: Classing questions on: January 26, 2012, 05:01:25 AM
It does look like they haven't finalized the 2012 solo rules, they have a draft posted on the SCCA website though.  All the suspension work is fine for STS, but I didn't see anything about the flywheel.  That could put you in CSP (or SM) if it's not allowed.
422  General / Open Forum / Re: Meeting Tonight, Jan 19th on: January 25, 2012, 05:00:46 AM
Also, I notice there is no TVR marque trophy.  Hypothetically speaking, if I bought a decrepit 2500M for a couple grand and campaigned it for a season (plus added the $100, obviously), could that be rememdied?

Absolutely.  We use Bunkie Trinite trophies if you're interested in looking at different styles and pricing.  If you're at the banquet we'll have all the current trophies displayed.  I think the VW one is the most elaborate.
423  General / Open Forum / Re: Meeting Tonight, Jan 19th on: January 22, 2012, 07:51:36 PM
I've been meaning to do this for a while.  I just posted up an explanation of how the points work here.
424  Events / Other Events / Re: 2011 VMSC Annual Banquet on: January 14, 2012, 10:44:21 AM
I don't even know how to respond  Shocked
425  General / Technical Help / Re: Tires for 2012, your input please! on: January 11, 2012, 05:14:25 AM
Hoosiers have a reputation for being the stickiest when new, but falling off more quickly than other tires (maybe only good grip for one season).  I haven't seen any comparisons between the Hoosiers and the Hankooks, but haven't heard anything bad about the Hankooks.  I also need new tires for this season and am going with the Hankooks since they are $80 less per tire than the Hoosiers and $55 less than the Kumhos.
