401  General / Classifieds / (2) 255/45/17 Hoosier A6s ~50% left on: April 30, 2012, 03:21:02 PM
My Dad has two used 255/45/17 A6s with ~50% life left in them.  They're probably 4 or 5 years old.  If someone wants them, let me know and they can have them for cheap/free depending on how much work I have to do to get them to you.  He's coming down to VA at the end of June and I can have him bring them down then.

Post here, shoot me a PM or email (president at vmsc dot org) to claim.

403  General / Open Forum / Carmax warranty program? on: April 17, 2012, 05:20:26 AM
One of my co-workers just bought an '09 3 series from Carmax w/28k on it.  He's looking at getting either their extended warranty program, or BMWs.  The Carmax one is cheaper and appears to be pretty comprehensive, but I've never heard any feedback as to whether it's actually any good when you need to use it.

He's got until tomorrow to accept/decline the Carmax warranty.  Does anyone here have any experience with it or have you heard feedback on it?

Here are the raw times, I don't have the computer so I can't compile the full report.

I have scales, just not a whole lot of time.  I could block off a day if a few people wanted their cars corner weighted at the same time.

I've updated the results.  Thanks.
407  Events / Autocross / Re: so what is my car class? on: April 03, 2012, 08:06:44 AM
We've thought about giving a mutilated cone to the person who hit the most cones.  Unfortunately, that is pretty labor intensive to figure out.

I'll correct these few things some time in the next couple of days.

413  General / Classifieds / WANTED: Miata hood, fenders, other parts on: March 14, 2012, 07:24:00 AM
So, we're going to turn the Miata I bought into a LeMons car, at least for this year.  That means we need a hood and fenders.  They don't need to be pretty or straight or solid.  The cheaper the better!  It's an NA Miata, but other generation parts may fit, I'll take whatever I can get if the price is right.

We're also looking for:
- 15" wheels, for cheap!  I can get some 4x100 wheels at a junkyard for < $100 so that's about my price range.
- Tires w/190+ treadwear, ideally 205/50/15, but anything around there would work.  Will pay top dollar for some Direzza Star Specs (200 treadwear).
- master cylinder
- racing seat
- tach
- water temp and oil pressure gauges, not the kind that use a tube full of oil routed to the gauge in the cockpit
- battery & alternator kill switch
- any spare parts that are required to race a car and you want to get rid of (non-warped brake rotors, alternators, wheel bearings, tie rods, ball joints, engines, transmissions, rear ends)
- suspension pieces that you want to part with for very little money (since this counts towards our $500 budget)

Please let me know if you have anything or know anyone who does.
414  General / Technical Help / Re: Battery Relocation Question on: March 13, 2012, 01:57:04 PM
Full disclosure...I haven't actually read the rules, but I think we'd be comfortable as long as it was tied down securely.  If you haven't already, you may want to look into what downsides putting the battery in the trunk may have.  I know the Miata ones are vented to somewhere and battery boxes exist for a reason.
415  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: It's alive! on: March 12, 2012, 03:44:23 AM
The plan is to pull the drivetrain out and use it for a Locost eventually.  I'm not sure how long it will be before I do that though, given the number of other things I need to do.  The thought has crossed my mind that it would be a good LeMons car as well.
416  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: It's alive! on: March 11, 2012, 05:37:41 PM
Thanks for reminding me!
417  General / Autos and Autosport / It's alive! on: March 11, 2012, 03:00:11 PM
So I got the Miata running finally.  After new plugs and wires I was still having intermittent spark issues.  I went to try it again yesterday after drying it out in my garage and it had spark, but no fuel.  This was the opposite of what was happening at the dyno day.  I was confused so I decided to start troubleshooting everything listed in the Miata.net "no start" thread.  After checking a couple fuses, I made my way to the ECU.  It was buried in a pile of leaves and dirt, after uncovering it I noticed it was partly covered in rust.  I figured I should probably open it up and sure enough, more rust.  After emptying a half a can of electrical contact cleaner into it and putting everything back together it started right up!  I drove it around the neighborhood and did a few donuts in the yard.  Success!

Also, for anyone interested in learning how to setup/use the timing equipment, we'll be going through it at the tire day.
419  Events / Autocross / Re: meadow event park on: March 07, 2012, 05:34:15 PM
We think it will.  We're following up with them and there's some hope that it won't.  We should know more early next week.  We're also reaching out to RIR and VMP to try and quickly fill the holes in our schedule that may appear.

Damn, that does look good.  It says it's closed now though Sad
421  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!
422  General / Open Forum / Re: My Garage Build - The Airboxer Garage on: March 04, 2012, 05:20:58 AM
Did you find low compression on those two cylinders?  Just wondering if you saw any signs prior to the teardown.
423  General / Open Forum / Re: New to Richmond on: March 03, 2012, 04:47:56 AM
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.
424  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.
425  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.
