2020 Rule Change Ideas

The only shortcoming that comes to mind for me is the never-ending quest to get more action in the S5 class. For 2018-19, we had 11 drivers in S5... and 10 drivers in R1. M0 ended up larger due to several people opting to "class up" just to challenge the handful of regular M0 drivers. R1 is what it...

Something about 75 ft-lbs of extra torque. Assuming I'm making anything close to the factory spec at 280,000 miles....

S4 got me like... Step 1 - Get out of your own head. Step 2 - Get into Jamie's head. If that's what he's relying on, you may as well give me 2d place now. Oh snap! Lol I remember when Sophia started saying that...in the 4th grade! How can Taylor master this course when he can't reach the pedals yet...

Not so sure, there...all I see is Loren taking a nap under the car, and some other guy relaxing on the front fender. Or resting his head against the hood and also taking a nap. The guy all the way in back might be doing something.... :twisted:

Secrets of the Mirage

you just drive the Mirage around flat out until the tires break loose Others (such as Philip) will disagree, but I'm of the opinion that if I drive this car until the tires break loose... as soon as that happens, I've lost some momentum that I can't get back. So, no... that's not how I drive it. I ...

Secrets of the Mirage

Having driven both, I think a stock Miata's faster in an absolute sense, but the handling limits are lower, and when you have to lift, your power advantage goes away. For most of the courses we run, you just drive the Mirage around flat out until the tires break loose. The only other limitation I no...

Also super smooth! Ah, so it was the morning groups that put all those little ripples in the pavement! I'd forgotten how interesting the surface was -- or maybe it's changed over the years. Fun site and course. And I'm having my arteries snaked out after the post-event dinner...chicken topped with ...

Amidst the normal post-event love-fest, there is one issue that needs discussion, and it's not my co-driver making smoke by rubbing a car and two cones together. Grid. As a club, we brag about taking care of our newbies. And we make a point to tell novices to grid towards the back, so they can ride ...

4/20 at the Dunnellon Airport

I had no issue with the small cones. After watching a bunch of video, I wasn't as happy. Over six runs, I just wasn't getting as close to the 12" cones as the 18" ones -- don't know whether that was a difference in perception due to the height or what, but it was there. No doubt, I'd learn to get c...
