826  General / Technical Help / Re: Classing Question on: November 14, 2008, 06:17:06 PM
It looks like he would belong in E-Mod or X-Prepared.  I am just going by what I found other Cobra replicas running on the internet.  I don't think it will matter which class he puts himself in, the PAX is very close in both of them and he is likely to be the only car in either one.

Don't forget to change the previous event results too. i need the points to hopefully stay ahead of Wagner for the year. Wink

Hey Scott.  I just got done with these this evening.  Check out the September results post for the update.
828  Results / Autocross / Re: Sept. 14 Results on: November 03, 2008, 06:18:23 PM
The original results for this event used the 2007 PAX values.  I have corrected the PAX file and re-published the results on MyAutoEvents.  I am also attaching them here, for your convenience.

Alright, I think I've gotten everything pointed out so far.  I have tried updating the results on MyAutoEvents, but it doesn't seem to be working for me so I am attaching them here.

I've looked through all past autocrosses at it tentatively looks like They are correct through the August event.  For some reason, September and this past autocross were off.  I will double check ALL pax multipliers when calculating season points.

Thanks for pointing that out.  I will update the results today after I get home from work.  I will also go through the rest of our 2008 events and make sure we are using the correct PAX for them.

834  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: 24 Hours of Lemons 2009 on: October 23, 2008, 07:52:56 AM
I was looking around for roll cage fabricators around Richmond and found Roll Cage Components, located in Powhatan.  They even have a specific page for a 24 Hours of LeMons cage: http://www.rollcagecomponents.com/kits7.htm

I wonder if they would be willing to sponsor us?  Let's see what the schedule for next year looks like and we can start planning in depth on what we need and how we can source it cheaply.
835  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: 24 Hours of Lemons 2009 on: October 22, 2008, 05:38:21 PM
Hey, those Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Specs have a treadwear rating of 200  Wink

Cheap 15" 4x100 wheels should be easy to come by.  Steelies always work and are easy to repair, should one get bent.  I'll be happy to work on the car as well as drive.  The race should actually be ~13 hours.  check out the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_Hours_of_LeMons
836  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: 24 Hours of Lemons 2009 on: October 20, 2008, 10:45:32 AM
We can sell seats, carpet, AC parts, misc electrics, interior trim, exterior trim, glass, lights, body panels (at least trade them for someone else's beat up one plus some cash)...

The more I read about this, the less I would plan on bringing the car back from the race (Tony - does your offer still stand?).  It sounds like a ton of fun.  A cage, harness and tires are probably going to be the largest expenses on top of the car.  I would err on the side of safety and go a little overkill with the cage.
837  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: 24 Hours of Lemons 2009 on: October 20, 2008, 03:52:12 AM
I would love to be part of the team.  Does selling parts from a car give you credits towards the price (edit - oooo, I just read the rules...it does!)?

http://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/858930355.html - this would be good if we could put some tires on it...oh, and fix the timing belt

I also know that Keath recently got Glenn's old Civic for free and wants to turn it into a car for Hillclimbs.  That could be ideal since it needs a cage anyways...Keath, what do you say?
838  Events / Autocross / Re: Old Autocross Results on: October 15, 2008, 09:26:42 AM
I have an Excel sheet with the 2006 results that was used to calculate year end points.  If you would like it, please let me know and I can email it to you.
839  Events / Autocross / Re: First Shake Down on the 26th on: October 10, 2008, 03:48:10 AM
Yes, you will get a number at registration.

Good to hear that you plan on coming out.  I can't wait to see the car!

840  General / Open Forum / Re: rust and trailer paint on: July 31, 2008, 10:22:04 AM
POR-15 is expensive, but works pretty well.  You can paint it right over the rust.  It is an epoxy paint, you basically scrape the major rust off, prep the surface with whatever they give you and then brush on the paint.  You need to topcoat it with something because it is sensitive to UV light.

I undercoated the rusty rear subframe of my Mustang with this when I was living in New England and going to school in upstate NY.  Before I did it you could poke holes in certain spots with a screwdriver.  Two winters later the areas I painted were exactly the same as when I painted them.

842  General / Classifieds / Re: SOLD! 1991 Honda CRX Si - $1,500 on: June 26, 2008, 02:55:21 AM
It's part RSX and part 1995 Civic CX...I already bought a KPro for it.  If I can get the wiring sorted out I should have it running in July.
843  General / Classifieds / Re: SOLD! 1991 Honda CRX Si - $1,500 on: June 23, 2008, 12:44:36 PM
I know!  I put it on Craigslist and within 20 minutes talked to a few interested people.  Less than an hour after posting it someone looked at it, test drove it to an ATM and brought back a deposit.  He is supposed to be bringing the rest of the money today now that the bank is open.  Now I can buy another set of wheels and sticky tires for my new car   Grin
844  General / Classifieds / SOLD! 1991 Honda CRX Si - $1,500 on: June 21, 2008, 05:00:39 PM
Hi All,

I am selling my 1991 CRX Si for $1,500.  It has 197,xxx miles on it and runs great.  I have had it for almost 2 years.  The previous owner had replaced the timing belt at 180K.  I have replaced the master cylinder, oxygen sensor, exhaust (stock, factory Honda stuff), tires and a rear wheel bearing besides the typical maintenance.  I knew the previous owner and he had run Mobil 1 since he got it, so I kept running Mobil 1.  Unlike a lot of other Hondas it does not smoke at all.  I have averaged 35mpg since I got it and I drive it almost 100% around town and at autocrosses.  I have gotten as high as 45mpg and consistently get a little over 40mpg if I drive it on the highway at all or with a soft foot. The car has Falken Azenis tires on it with maybe 20% life left.  You could probably run them until the end of this season before replacing them.  I will throw in a set of spare rims if you want them as well.

Good features
40mpg, no problem
"Low mileage" (for a Honda)
Full interior
New, stock exhaust with catalytic converter
Sunroof works perfectly
Great mechanical condition
Stong, consistent compression
Surprisingly quick and fun to drive
No major rust

Bad features
Dents on the drivers side front and rear fenders
Paint is mediocre (the hood is faded)
Small hole in passenger seat (about the size of a nickel)
No radio
No AC
Rear trailing arm bushings should be replaced

Overall this would make a great autocross car for someone or even just a nice second car.  I would drive it every day if it had air conditioning and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country.  I need to sell it because between my girlfriend and I we have 5 cars.

I will be glad to send detailed pictures to anyone, just send me your email address.

Please email me or call me if you are interested.  I don't check the forum as often as I should and I usually don't notice that I have U2U messages for several weeks.

Thanks,
Justin

845  Results / Autocross / Re: Father's Day Follies 06/15/08 Preliminary Results on: June 17, 2008, 12:19:10 PM
I wasn't at the event so I don't know the whole story, but whatever time shows up in the computer is normally correct since it is populated straight from the timer, not hand-entered like the car number or penalties.

Lonnie - If you can bring the computer to the meeting at GForce on Thursday I would appreciate it.  I want to put together some mid-year points standings and need the results files.
846  General / Autos and Autosport / A good definition of autocross on: June 07, 2008, 02:43:19 PM
I was forwarded this link, it may be a re-post but it is pretty funny.  I especially like the definition of the A Street Prepared class.

It' gone.  Thank you VMSC.
848  General / Classifieds / Re: Free - 5.0 Ford motor on: May 09, 2008, 09:27:24 AM
Thanks for the interest.  The motor is spoken for, though not gone yet.  I will let you know if something falls through.
849  General / Classifieds / Free - 5.0 Ford motor on: April 27, 2008, 04:52:54 PM
I've got a 5.0 HO motor that I believe is from a 1992 Mustang GT.  I was going to rebuild it, but have abandoned that project in favor of another.  The motor is in pieces and includes a full short block, heads, valve covers, lower intake and double-hump oil pan.

Right now, I just want it out of my garage so if you want it please let me know.
850  Results / Autocross / 04/13/2008 - Final Exam Results on: April 13, 2008, 05:01:06 PM

Thanks to everyone who came out and made today one of the smoothest running autocrosses I have ever been to.  Also, congrats to the students who attended the school on Saturday, everyone did very well!
