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.

407  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.
408  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.
409  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.
410  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: It's alive! on: March 11, 2012, 05:37:41 PM
Thanks for reminding me!
411  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.
413  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.
414  Events / Other Events / Re: CMP track weekend on Groupon on: March 07, 2012, 07:04:12 AM
Damn, that does look good.  It says it's closed now though Sad
415  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!
416  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.
417  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.
418  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.
419  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.
420  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.
421  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.
422  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.
423  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.
424  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.
425  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
