FAST Open Autocross - Mar 9 - Brooksville

But ES (S4) is the largest class in the event. For a stock class with no "catch-all" statement that specifies only a particular set of cars made between about 1964 and 2005, where most of the competitors are in 20-25 year old Miatas... that's both strange and impressive. Thinking back to when I sta...

Newb. Are you sure you're in the right class?

If you NEED power steering to parallel park it, you're just not backing in fast enough.

Honda Fit Engine Swap - Feb 15, 16, 17

I wondered if it was a problem with the VTEC solenoid -- almost called you when I got home, but decided to eat dinner and go to bed instead. :snore: Only ONE code remains! It's the Camshaft Position Sensor code. I can live with that. It's either not connected, a broken wire, or a bad sensor. We have...

Brooksville Status Report -2019

Some random thoughts -- No surprise they're planning to seal up the existing Runway Drive entrance...the plan has them moving the southeast/northwest runway there about 800 ft, right over top of that perimeter track. PEMCO, for those unfamiliar, also runs the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) ...

Power to weight ratio: Miata 0.058. Mustang 0.073
Torque? Miata drivers think torque is one of those Canadian winter hats with the fuzzy ball on top.

When will the carcasses be hauled off? When they've finished stripping the usable parts from them. I'm surprised the A318s are still there -- I'd thought they'd thoroughly cannibalized them by now, but I guess not. Maybe the skin sections are worth more than scrap. Expect the more recent arrivals t...

Y'know, it just occurred to me...this event is the first one I've seen Philip show up in something besides shorts and a T-shirt. We've finally found the limit of his tolerance.

Does the airport really benefit more financially from storing all those defunct planes? Absolutely, yes. I've no doubt they're getting much per month for each of those planes than they get from all the sports car clubs autocrossing there. And it's an aviation activity, which the FAA (who administer...

Boosting the Mirage

Dodge Dart GT - Has the same engine that's in the Abarth 500 and the Fiata. Not bad at all. Has a suspension upgrade that's firm enough that all the car reviewers comment on how firm it is... that might be a good thing. I've always liked the styling of this car. Upside: It's a Dodge, so it's deprec...
