FAST 2019 Rule Changes

Street Tires? Made it past all the “stock” qualifiers? Good, now let’s look at your tires. This is simple. If they are DOT approved and their treadwear rating is 140 or greater (check the sidewalls), we consider them street tires. (NOTE: A handful of cars come from the factory with tires that do no...

The drops file wasn't supposed to be posted, that was me messing around. I must have sent Loren the wrong file. We know how to count/add. I know I'm screwed for a T shirt. No biggie Phillipe Park. Too many ringers at the horseshoe pit. BUT that won't stop me from showing up in S1 or S3 for the last...

FAST Classic - Jan 27 @ Brooksville

Darn. No way I'll get new tires + mounted by Carl before this event. Nice smooth predictable quick course. Perfect for everyone. Especially course workers as no reason to hit any cones. :thumbwink:

RE71's are agreeing with you. You are depending on them way too much. :headscratch: Great day all around. Perfect weather, fun albeit challenging course. Cool peeps. I know my car had at least a 39.x in it but I just could't get there. Pretty sure I was losing time in the offsets on the return side...

We'll discuss this at 5:45pm on Monday. When it's supper time. Can be there at 7pmish? to discuss tires/retires/post-tires and various bullshit. Might bring the CV unit on race tires? People have to eat. Even spouses. Whoa. Really great food.

I like the course. Seems like it went by way quicker than the times had. The 39 mark was a goal I wanted and was nice to hit it. Other people getting low 39's and even 38's, you nuts. Feel like I left a smidge of time in the slaloms on the way out and I had a bad line going into the finish. The tur...

Saroya put her car into "kick ass" mode which was only available a few year ago = discontinued. You must have missed the upgrade from MisterBitichi? You want to change my motor? You're the Man.

Joe B can always get 2-3 more seconds out of my car than I can on the same day. But that doesn't really help me in the standings. :smack:

That was a very good course even with tired tires so congrats to Loren once again. Once again Tracy managed to beat me by .113sec so we are very competitive every event other than he's a morning person like almost all of S1. I am a realist. Even if I do buy new tires for my spare wheels I'm not goin...

FAST Open Autocross - Jan 12 - Brooksville

Weather is going to be super awesome. I won't have any new tires for God knows how long or what kind? Will resort to driving properly on bald burned out stock size RE-71 toddler (2 yr old) tires with unknown alignment and vague (Loren) tire pressures (rear TPMS quit). S0 Joe has new tires and a Joe ...

Some day you people will learn that the ONLY reason you got that fast time is because you shortened the course hitting those cones :lol: This isn't bumper pool you know.

As for my new car the only good thing I can say is it didn't burn a drop of oil and the diff is still in 1 pice. When will I learn going cheap always bites me lol So what year beater Miata did you find this time? Or do we have to wait and see Saturday? I think you should've leased a new $10k Chevy ...

I actually enjoyed that condensed map from a previous event. Handy visual reference when sitting in the grid two hours after walking the course. Looks like new tires wouldn't be that much difference on this course - full tread might be slower? Thanks for letting me slide by for yet another event on ...

He did say his tires were newer. Not the 10 year old set he's been complaining about for 5 years. Should've made him gimme 50 feet. I would have needed 198ft per lap. Damn that would be 594ft. That's with my "good" tires. I think Elliot was the name of the Dragon in a Pete's movie? Flame our asses.
