  1. That's also a very good point I was thinking...

    That's also a very good point I was thinking about yesterday, but didn't get around to posting before I went to sleep. The new crop of 200tw tires don't like to be pinched on narrow wheels. They...
  2. I don't run in the rain because I don't have rain...

    I don't run in the rain because I don't have rain tires. If it was just damp and Rcomps were still the right tire then I would. So far in three years I've only not ran one race on purpose because of...
  3. Here is one issue that I'm not happy about and it...

    Here is one issue that I'm not happy about and it could skew people's data with regards to street tires. If you run street tires on a track with a lot of race tire rubber laid down the track will...
  4. Overheating the front tires in 60 seconds is...

    Overheating the front tires in 60 seconds is pretty common in my Corvette. We compete a lot on concrete which generates more grip. Think ambient to 160* in a minute. I would love to have straights as...
  5. I'll be at the Solo National Championships in...

    I'll be at the Solo National Championships in September. If shaving street tires got you any gains someone would be doing it. I've been running them for two years and haven't seen anyone shaving them...

    I borrowed a pair of rims to do some testing with, but I only have 4 rims for the car. I can't run enough races to have a shot at a season championship so if there is a good chance of rain I don't...

    2-3 sets minimum? Dude, I've had one set of rims for my car in the 3 years I've raced it and those rims cost me $600...half the cost of a set of Hoosiers. Buying 15" rims isn't an issue when you can...
  8. I use the slightly more expensive fuel at VIR (93...

    I use the slightly more expensive fuel at VIR (93 octane or whatever the lowest is). Mostly because it's convenient. I know exactly how many gallons I want and the pump counts it out for me. I don't...
  9. If that actually worked the SCCA wouldn't need so...

    If that actually worked the SCCA wouldn't need so many classes. In fact why have different classes within IT. Let's just have ITR and everything goes there.

    We break it down to other classes...

    Just as a data point....my friend has compiled entry data for the Solo National Championships the last few years.

    Registration just opened for the event yesterday. More people have registered for...
  11. I'm just going to go ahead and tell everyone.......

    I'm just going to go ahead and tell everyone....

    I will laugh out loud and in your face if you show up on shaved 200tw tires. Not to shame you into hopefully spending less money so we can all be...
  12. In the Southeast we have enough cars to be in our...

    In the Southeast we have enough cars to be in our own group usually. That being said....Spec Miata has been behaving pretty good around here.
  13. If I can attend more races with a reduced tire...

    If I can attend more races with a reduced tire budget then I affectively become a new driver at all those events I wasn't previously going to. So far my car has been to VIR, my home track, and Barber...

    Here is all the pictures I've got so far. I just sold my truck so I have a few extra bills in the bank. Please let me know if you see any specifics about the cage that need to be addressed before I...

    Ok. I'll have to go back and read the GCR now. The door protection in the Rabbit isn't equal. I would like to get some opinions on what direction I should go with it. The driver side protection is...

    Yea...I'm in Greensboro. What updates are the cages supposed to have for 2007? Is it something listed in FastTrack? I can never keep up with all that stuff. I might as well go ahead and get that done...

    I recently aquired Doug Ketchie's old '83 GTI ITB car. I'm slowly rebuilding it as it was just a rolling chassis when I got it. The cage looks good and is hopefully up to spec. Any suggestions on...
