FAST Monday - 15 June 2020

Sorry, didn't check the forum earlier. Others may differ in their opinions, but I think Pinellas (and most of highly populated areas of Florida) is taking a major turn for the worse as far as COVID-19 transmission rates go. As much as I enjoy hanging out with car guys on Monday evening, I'm not goin...

School me on Race Tires

You might start by testing the waters. Maybe the local competition is such that you can be competitive with what you have in a class that it fits?

You know it's all a driver's game.

class for mustang (SCCA T4)

Would be M2 except for no interior. So, M0. If you want to run a TW less than 140, then R1.

Mirage - Still lifting a front tire

My first autocross car was a Saturn. I learned about 3-wheeling right away, not a problem. In this case, we're talking about a FWD car lifting a front tire... which generally doesn't happen until after it's lifted a rear tire. 2-wheels up is a problem, especially in a top-heavy unstable car! But, th...

May and June events + a Survey

I guess I could post some of the results: Overall 93 Responses 77 (83%) have done at least 3 events Would you attend a FAST event now? 1 (1.1%) Not Ready (and he answered the rest of the questions as if he should have said "with proper precautions") 2 (2.2%) No funds 28% Don't care about the virus 3...

You missed the survey by a couple days. I think I shut it down Wednesday night. Got some good results, though.

May and June events + a Survey

'Sup, everybody? Whole lotta nothin' going on around here lately. We're still waiting for any of our sites to allow us to even consider doing an event. March and April are gone, and May is a no-go. As of right now, we just lost our June 6 date at Lakeland. There's some uncertainly about what the Tig...

Virtual FAST Monday - April 27

It was kinda fun doing this a couple weeks ago. Why not do it again?

Virtual FAST Monday?

It was good spending some time with the FAST crew this evening. A little bit surreal to be sitting in the (very empty) Craft Street parking lot eating a burger by myself while chatting remotely with Philip and Bill, and later to be driving around rural Hillsborough County by myself... but, with frie...

"Freedom Factory" (formerly Bradenton Motorsports Park)

Okay, let's put this one to bed for a bit. As I've said to anyone who would listen: Unless they take out some light poles and pave the entire infield, it's not going to be very usable for autocross... at least under the rules that OUR insurance company requires. So, here's an analysis. Freedom-Facto...

School me on Race Tires

Along the lines of what Jamie is saying... you may find that you're competitive just by fitting WIDER "street" tires and driving mo' betta than your competition. The DOT race rubber isn't all that much faster. And all out slicks, while potentially quicker, as was mentioned above... they take some he...

FAST Karting Challenge - March 22

Why am I not going? Several reasons, the virus probably being the least of them. When we moved the event to Bushnell, it made it a 90-minute drive for me. 3 hour uninteresting round trip. Meh. I have a driving lesson this evening. So, in addition to 3 hours of driving, and a couple hours of karting,...
