FAST Classic Autocross - Sep 8 @ Brooksville

Registration is 1/3 full already. And those people are mostly "new and unfamiliar" names, which is great! But, it also means that if you're slacking and thinking you're going to register at the last minute... it's probably not going to happen for you.

Go get registered!

Doin' Brakes in the Groj Aug 18

It's fine if you bring your car over. And if you can get your rear bushings done in a matter of about 6 hours with the help of whoever's there... sure.

I have no idea how long that job would take on your car. And I don't have a press.

Doin' Brakes in the Groj Aug 18

I'm a fan of not getting up stupid early when I don't have to.

Okay. Official start time: 10:00.

Expect there to be food (whether we go out, stay in, order pizza, or whatever... there will be food) somewhere around lunchtime.

You're going to have a hard time explaining that "Be Aggressive" sticker over your speedo when you get stopped for speeding.

Doin' Brakes in the Groj Aug 18

Brake pads have arrived. Checked the groj and found that I have two pints of fresh Valvoline synthetic brake fluid. Wouldn't use it for a track day, but it's fine for street & autocross. And I decided I should try changing the transmission fluid to see if it smooths out some of my shifts, and maybe ...

FAST Classic Autocross - Sep 8 @ Brooksville

What's that you say? You need just a little more practice before the first event of the 2019 Championship? Say no more. We got your back, fam! This is a Classic event, which means fewer entries, more runs and no formal novice instruction. We do require all entrants to have competed in at least 5 pri...

We're up to at least 6. If anyone gets there before me, grab us a table for 8. I probably won't be late, but you never know.

Didn't you try to run a beater Miata for a short while way back when?

August 12 - That "Between Seasons" event

Still mostly suffering from "little improvement after the first run or two", as I have most of this year. I'm starting to think that it might not be a terrible thing. I need to find someone who can drive the Mirage faster than I can to verify that I'm getting all or most of what I can out of it. Any...

Holy crap it was hot! Thanks to all who braved the heat and a little rain to come play with us, and the usual great bunch of folks who helped get things done throughout the day. (especially the end of the day) Results are up! Sorry that I let everyone down by letting Steve beat me. In a VW. Passat G...

My garage is an official oil spilling facility. The Advanced parts store in Oldsmar will take your oil, though. Just a couple miles away.

Doin' Brakes in the Groj Aug 18

New season. Good time for new brakes! Okay, in reality, I had to order some parts from Rock Auto for my truck (cuz Steve broke my ignition switch :whine: ) and wanted to make the most of my $11 shipping. They happened to have some good PowerStop ceramic pads for the Mirage for something like $35. Fi...
