Thanks for the tips, they make a lot of sense.  I need to make a standard set of driver's meeting notes and will include these.

We ended up getting some high-end, waterproof FRS radios.  We'll see what happens with these.  I was looking at the GMRS licensing procedure and all I could find on the FCC site talked about having to license each individual user unless they were related, which wouldn't be feasible for us.  Has anyone seen any info on how to obtain a license for a club?

Hi, unfortunately the only legal practice for autocross I know of is at an autocross or other motorsport event.  We do have a practice autocross (informal, non points) event in August that would get them a bunch of seat time.  I wouldn't worry too much about bringing them to our June and July events and letting them at the course as long as they know what to do if they get in over their head.  Realistically, their first couple times they are going to need to drive the course, rather than the car if you know what I mean.

The June 12 autocross originally scheduled for Meadow Event Park has been moved to RIR because of some contract issues with the county that we are working to resolve.  Sorry for the change, see you at RIR.

Hi everyone!

Thanks so much for making me feel so welcome today, I had a great time!  All the pictures are on my website, www.LakeAnnaPhotography.com, and I'm in the process of setting it up so they can be downloaded for free.  In the meantime, you can "right-click" them to copy and save.  I also put a few on my Facebook page. 

Thanks again for all the assistance!

Thank you, Lisa!  The pictures look great.  I've also added a link to them within our Pictures and Media section.

I Think # 81 was on street tires....... Undecided

Well...my "street tires" being Nitto NT01s Wink  I like to think that I'd have been faster on my Kumhos, but honestly at this point in their life, I don't know.

Results from the 5/15 autocross are posted here on MyAutoEvents.

Our next event is on June 12th at Meadow Event Park.  Registration at MyAutoEvents is open now.  See you there.

Thanks, Bernard.  We're also considering just getting some high-end FRS radios, if anyone has any experience, good or bad, with high-end FRS or low-end business class units, let us know.
412  General / Open Forum / Where to get business radios? on: May 06, 2011, 04:22:00 AM
So, as I'm sure many of you know, the FRS radios that we use suck.  They're only about a year old and they seem to sporadically receive and transmit.  We're looking at upgrading and it seems like a business class radio like the Motorola CLS or RDX is the next step.  Anyone know where we can get a decent deal on ~8 of them or have suggestions on other radios?
413  Results / Autocross / Re: 05/01/2011 Results on: May 03, 2011, 03:34:15 AM
Thanks, Rick.  Taking you out of street tire won't change points, just where you are displayed so I will leave you in there for now.  If I have to make other updates I'll change your classing.

Glad you enjoyed yourself, that's our goal when putting on these events.  I hope you're hooked now and we'll see you at our next autocross on the 15th  Smiley

Here's a link to my third, and fastest run: http://www.youtube.com/justinloehlein#p/u/2/zCD0JH_Tw2A

It also happened to be a 56.4.  Somehow, it was 0.003 seconds faster than Chris' run Grin

Thanks to everybody who came out today, it was an excellent day.  I'm looking forward to tomorrow, the weather should be just as good.

I downloaded the times from the Practice Autocross and have posted them here on MyAutoevents.  There may be some mismatches in there if we had a computer issue and I know there were a couple cars running around with the same number for a while, so they're not official.  They should give you a good idea of where everyone was though.

We're planning on finishing around 4, but you can leave any time you like after your work assignment.

We allow Formula Fords to run, you'd be in the C Mod class.

I'd like to take a look, maybe at the next event.  Either that or PM me if there would be a good time this weekend or next weekend to take a look.  No need to unmount beforehand just for me.

There's a document titled "Your First Autocross" in the Downloads section of our site which has some good pointers in it.  The most overlooked prep item that can't always be taken care of at the event is to make sure your battery is secured with a tie down (bungee cords don't count, make sure you have a real tie down).  Most cars come from the factory with a tie down, but sometimes they are missing.

Running your stock car on street tires is the best way to learn.  The slower the car is through the course, the easier it is for you to keep up with it and really focus on driving it to 100% of its potential.  Then, if you want to modify it you will have an idea of what you want out of it (more oversteer, less oversteer, etc) which can influence what parts you put on it.

No sir, my Scion tC is completely naturally aspirated and the mods I have done to it are all dealer options (100% TRD parts) and include springs, rear sway bar, front strut tie, and an axleback exhaust.

I talked to Justin about it, and he said that it should be classified as HS.

The 05 Scion xA that was there is very tuned with a turbo and redone suspension, and that is classified as SMF

Technically dealer installed options are not the same as factory options.  I would call your car an STS car I think.  Really doesn't matter though because its all for fun anyways.

4B11AWD - I think you're right.  The rules say "Cars running in Stock Category must have been series produced with normal road touring equipment capable of being licensed for normal road use in the United States, and normally sold and delivered through the manufacturer's retail sales outlets in the United States."  So it seems like the car has to be available from the dealer for sale in that configuration, the upgrade parts have to be factory options.

Walker - sorry for the misinformation.  I'd just run STS next time, you know who you should be running close to time-wise...class doesn't matter.  Also, no one should listen to my class advice  Undecided

How old are they?  My 710s have ~30% tread left but are 2.5yrs old and are definitely rock hard, at least before applying traction treatment.  I know I'm going to have to replace them this season and really don't look forward to spending $800 on another set of tires.

Hi Chuck,

Glad you were impressed by the event.  You do not have to be a VMSC member to participate.  Registration for everyone is done through MyAutoEvents.  I do want to be clear that the 4/30 event is not a school since we don't provide instructors, but I'm sure there will be people there willing to give you a few pointers or let you ride and see what they're doing.  Hope to see you there!

-Justin
