"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...

We're keeping an eye on it. If the new improvements make it look usable for us, we'll dive in.

Project WheeeeeDub

Light enough to tow behind the Mirage.

This thing is FTD waiting to happen. Someone should buy it.

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,...

FAST Karting Challenge - March 22

Just called the track, they're still open for public kart rental 12-7pm Sunday. We're still on! However, Steve couldn't break free on a Sunday, and Loren has opted out. There are still about a dozen people signed up, though! We're going to handle this differently. Basically, we're pulling FAST out o...

Got us a socially distanced table on the patio. (They are taking that seriously, every other table is blocked.) They're closing at 9, so don't be late!

FAST Open Autocross - April 4 - Lakeland

Well, hell. I guess y'all probably knew this was coming. As the COVID-19 virus continues to gain momentum, we cannot in good conscience hold this event as-scheduled. Even if we wanted to, it's extremely likely that Lakeland would end up canceling it, anyway. Venice has already nixed our April 18 eve...

FAST Karting Challenge - March 22

Update: Philip did some recon at TBGP and found that "their karts are trash". Apparently, they're maintenance is not up to par, and the karts have a variety of problems. So much so that when Philip asked for a replacement for his ailing kart, the attendant told him "they're all like that." So, we're...

FAST Monday - March 16 - Shamrock Edition

Okay, let's talk about this Corona virus thing. It is a valid concern. We almost opted out of FAST Monday for it. Here's where I'm at: 1. If you're part of the "vulnerable" population (over a certain age, or with an otherwise questionable immune system), stay home! 2. If you're not, consider how you...

Miata Kart M0 class?

Properly street legal and safe is good for M0.

I'd prefer to see a hood on it, but at least you have a windshield.

I'm on a 30 minute wait for a table for 6.

Watching a cheap Hyundai try to back in next to an $$$ BMW I8. Scary.
