401  General / Technical Help / Re: C5 Z06 when to replace the dampers ? What kind ? on: March 31, 2011, 05:24:30 PM
I do have to say that the Koni's we put on Keath and Donna's Corvette sucked to adjust.  The adjustment wasn't at the tip of the rod or on the body of the shock, but was on the rod itself, just underneath the top of the dust couldn't get to it unless you cut a slot in the dust boot or didn't use the boot at all.  Even then, you needed to pull the wheel off to adjust them.

Thanks, Gene.  I've updated it so that field is no longer required, just leave it blank for open class.
403  Events / Autocross / 3/27 Autocross Canceled on: March 25, 2011, 08:56:34 AM
Because of the forecasted snow in Doswell for Sunday, we're canceling the 3/27 event.  Sorry for the last minute notice.  Those of you who have pre-paid will receive a credit towards the next event.  Email treasurer at vmsc dot org if you would prefer a refund.

Our next event is only a couple weeks away at RIR.  The Novice School is being held on Saturday, 4/9 followed by an autocross on 4/10.  See you there!
404  Events / Autocross / Re: Weather Policy on: March 25, 2011, 08:49:55 AM
Yes, the event has been of a few minutes ago.

We will cancel events if the conditions make it unsafe.  We do not cancel events for rain or cold weather, but will for snow or tropical-storm grade weather events.  During an event, if we experience lightning, we stop running and get all of the workers/participants out of the lot.
405  General / Classifieds / FS/FT: 14" 4x100 steelies w/sketchy tires for cheap! on: March 14, 2011, 06:35:52 PM
I've got a set of 14" steelies that were on my Civic when I got the shell.  They have tires on them with 3-6/32nds tread, but they're old and dry rotted.  I think 3 of the tires are Yokohama A550s and there is one unknown brand, all 185/65/14 IIRC.  They hold air fine.  I feel comfortable driving on them at normal speeds and on short trips...they really should be replaced.

I'd like to have $20 for them or something of similar value that is generally tasty, useful, or interesting and takes up less room than 4 wheels and tires.  My bar is pretty low, I really just want these gone.  PM me or post if you're interested.

You're correct.
407  Events / Other Events / Re: Driftwater- Very Affordable Seat time!! on: March 02, 2011, 09:44:13 AM
I would totally be going to this if it didn't conflict with our first autocross.
408  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day! on: February 09, 2011, 09:49:31 AM
I'm planning on being there.  Don't know at this point that I'll dyno anything though.
409  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day! on: February 07, 2011, 04:23:01 PM
I'll be there with the prelude.

Do you know if there is any one there who can do a tune on a hondata setup?

I'd call them up and ask.  They specialize in American cars, but I've definitely seen a 4th gen Supra in there as well.

Just a reminder, get your payments in this week.  While we accept payments later it helps us get an accurate count ahead of time if you can get them in this week.

See you on the 12th.
411  Events / Other Events / THSCC/TZC HPDE at VIR April 2-3 on: January 08, 2011, 08:22:16 PM
Thought I'd post up the info for an HPDE I registered for.  It's put on by Tarheel Sports Car Club and Triangle Z, info can be found here on  It's on Sat April 2nd and Sunday April 3rd.  You can expect 3 hours of instructed track time plus classroom instruction.  I've run with these guys before and had a blast.  It'd be great to get a group of people together to go, sign up or reach out if you're interested.

Nice!  I got pretty sideways on my second run around the turnaround at the far end of the parking lot:
418  General / Classifieds / Re: WTB: 4x100 wheels with tires on: November 23, 2010, 04:06:18 PM
you can have the azenis....  Shocked

Sweet!  I'm all paranoid after watching the video David posted in this thread.  I'll catch up with you after the holidays and will probably snag them from you if they have decent tread left.
419  General / Classifieds / Re: WTB: 4x100 wheels with tires on: November 22, 2010, 04:44:28 AM
Will 13" wheels clear your brakes? I have a set of wheels you can have if you want to buy tires as the ones on them aren't really any good anymore.

Thanks, I'm trying to avoid buying new tires though

Thanks, Tony.  I'll definitely be borrowing them come inspection time in Feb if I haven't bought anything Smiley  I shot you a PM.
423  General / Classifieds / WTB: 4x100 wheels with tires on: November 20, 2010, 02:41:01 PM
So I put my 14" steelies on the Civic for the winter and the tires are waaaay dry rotted.  A new set of crappy tires is going to cost me ~$300 mounted and balanced, so I figured I'd see if anyone had some 4x100 wheels and tires for sale.  As long as the tires have more than 50% tread left and are in good shape (no dry rot or crazy camber wear), I'm interested.  14" or 15" wheels are fine, I'm not picky about what they look like.  Let me know what you've got!

^your car is amazing by the way^

I think there was some confusion on times since we were running 1 car and two drivers. Who do I need to talk too?

Just let me know what the issues were.  PM's are a good way to get a hold of me.
