Make sure you take a ride with Sabine Schmitz
She doesn't drive the Ring Taxi anymore Sad

Nice.  You may want to consider renting a rotary hammer.  That'll make drilling through the concrete much, much faster.

If you're just looking for something cheap, give this guy a call:  His stock is always changing but I wouldn't be surprised if you could get a set of tires for 40-80ea.

I've heard mixed reviews on the Hankooks but am probably going to end up getting a set myself next year since Kumho V710s got expensive all of a sudden.  Make sure you get the C71 compound, the C51 will likely be too hard for autocross.

Lift?  Are you getting a lift?  That would be excellent.

Attached are each person's points up to and including the June autocross.  As a reminder, only members who pay for the full membership ($25) are eligible for trophies at the end of the year.  It's never too late to join, just ask at any club event or shoot us an email.  Thanks, Jeff for putting these together!

Results from the 07/10/2011 autocross are posted here on MyAutoEvents.  Thanks to everybody who came out and made it a great event and thanks to Engelbert and Ricardo for setting up the course, it flowed very well.

Don't forget to register for the Practice Autocross back at RIR on August 20th.  $40 will get you 4 hours of seat time.

Good call.  I have used this kit before:  If you just changed your oil, you may need to wait another couple thousand miles before sampling.
409  General / Technical Help / Re: c5 corvette engine knock ? on: July 06, 2011, 06:25:46 PM
Could you tell if it was coming from the bottom end or top end?  Was it happening under full throttle or no throttle?  Are you running cheap gas?  Can you monitor the knock sensor output from the ECU?  If it killed the power it sounds like the knock sensors picked it up, hopefully it's detonation, but if it happened at idle that's probably not the case.  Could it just have been something rattling around, like the headers hitting something under the car?

Where'd you have it tuned?
410  Events / Other Events / Tail of the Dragon, July 30th 2011 on: July 01, 2011, 06:56:07 PM
For anyone interested, a few of us are going down to NC to drive the Tail of the Dragon on the morning of Saturday, July 30th.  Since it takes quite a while to get down there, we're driving down on Friday and staying at a nearby hotel.  Anyone is welcome to join.

We'll actually also be doing the BMW Factory Tour on Friday afternoon (7/29).  I know it was pretty much full when we booked, but you can call them to find out if some spots have opened up.

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.
417  Events / Autocross / 6/12/2011 autocross moved to RIR on: June 02, 2011, 06:23:03 PM
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,, 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 "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.

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.
422  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?
423  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:

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