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.

Yes, considering the first ones appeared 18 months ago. When will the carcasses be hauled off?

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.

I guess this how we will lose Brooksville, a closed runway filled with scrap metal.

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 ...

Here's my best run. Any criticism is greatly appreciated.

This is what I did between runs. I had exactly enough time to check temps and pressure, as soon as I finished you can see it was time to get in the car for the next run.

1/6/19 - Bonus Event in the Bag

Buncha whiners. That "Chicago Box" was nothing more than a 60' radius turn. Same as the turn-around. If you tried to drive the turn-around without braking, or by braking too late, you'd have equally disastrous results as you may have had trying to carry too much speed through that box. But, thanks ...

If I recall correctly, you are tuning this with a laptop. If so just do print screen and save as jpegs for documentation.
