Aug 10, a Sunny day in Venice

You literally waited till the 6th/7th run when it course was the most dry. If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then you knew damn well what your objective was. I <3 u Andrew :lust: . I have seen FAST regulars do this not be penalized, and brag about how the strategy ...

The Early Session is sold out!

Before anyone asks for a Course Map (pink cones or not), I haven't started designing it yet, and have to make some adjustments to the site map first. It'll be a while.
Not due till Monday anyway.

Loren wrote:Geez, now I have people nitpicking colors. We have some red cones. Those cones are intended to be red. The shades of green and orange that I use for cones aren't correct either. It's a freakin' MAP.
It's not the color, someone said if you hit one it's a DNF. That's the concern.

WTF? Pink cones? Is this a course for girls only?

FAST Open Autocross - April 7 - Brooksville

A little late I know, but... anyone have any co-drives open in the afternoon? My car is running ( yes ) but the "new" throw out bearing I bought sounds like trash and frankly I don't trust the car to make it to brooksville ( that and the exhaust leak may kill me ). Will pay top dollar! Stop buying ...

FAST Open Autocross - Mar 9 - Brooksville

Looks pretty obvious from the S1- 19 racers Sat. that the SCCA Dixie Tour starts March 15-17. There are like 10 sleepers in that class. At first I thought it was FN with that many participants. But then Phillip is a ringer too no matter where he lands:) So it's all in good fun. An odd factoid. Ther...

Sometimes they use a different camshaft for auto vs manual cars.

Have you considered taking plug 2 out and using your endoscope to see inside the cylinder? Probably a waste of time but you never know.

Ask them to rotate the crankshaft and report back, if it rotates easily the cylinders are not rusted.

FAST Open Autocross - Feb 9 - Brooksville

I just finished revising the course for the shifted location, which entailed starting on the opposite side. So, I had to mirror the course, and then rework the section near the rubble pile. Fun stuff. It's out for safety review. Should have it posted by about Monday. Just an FYI, they have added an...

Moving the course farther down the runway makes going off much more expensive, there is a big drop off, 8-12 inches, and a long pile of concrete ruble, both of which are hidden by the grass.

Boosting the Mirage

Chassis Dyno: $80 will get you three runs at WOT with AFR's. Do a baseline and then do it again after your mods. This will confirm the HP increase and verify the motor won't blow up on the autocross course. Seems like solid investment. Others on this board might support this. I'll tell you what. I ...
