5 Replies and 2425 Views overbuilt car, can I play?  2425  5 Started by  DogMobile Due to a head-on, I can no longer shift. My right hand presses buttons and I can barely shift a column shifter, and I won't be shifting a car again. I could buy a brand new car at this point, but that isn't my style. I've decided to 'commission' a classic Chevy and autocross it occasionally for fun. I'll budget $15K-$20K total, at least for the initial build. One way I figure is to pick up a near finished project and have a shop finish it. I just want to autocross as a legal way to flog a ...

3 Replies and 3461 Views Safety Steward question: Windows up or down - during a SCCA Solo run?  3461  3 Started by  Conekilla As the thread title indicates, what's the scca rulebook rule on this matter is it something SCCA dictates or the insurance company dictates (for that region) or the region has the final saying on what goes (yes vs no) I have seen some people run with their windows up. In a crash or just losing consciousness (out of the blue) or seizure or any other medical complication during a run, it'll be much harder to bring someone out of a 'window up' car vs. a window down. Also, someone a course wor...

1 Replies and 2548 Views Solo Nationals PHOTOS  2548  1 Started by  boomer6 I took way too many photos at Nationals this year... almost 10000 photos posted in the GotCone.com 2015 Solo National Championships Photo Gallery. I'm still trying to recover some photos from Th Heats 1 & 2 from a corrupted memory card and ProSolo Finale photos will be posted in the next couple days.

3 Replies and 2118 Views Classing a VW New Beetle VR6  2118  3 Started by  cabriofanboy I have the opportunity to acquire a VR6 Engine and transmission. I plan to put it into my 2003 VW New Beetle. As far as classing goes, there is no production version of New Beetle with a VR6. There is an equivalent version of GTI. What class it belongs in will dictate how I build this project. I will have enough suspension mods that it would obviously be beyond street. I'm not quite sure if it would be in DSP in the 'catch-all' of 6-cyl N/A not classified, or something like Street Mod. because o...

7 Replies and 2959 Views Solo Nationals Weather  2959  7 Started by  bruecksteve Once again, I'll be making daily updates to help keep you informed about the weather. I have an updated Solo Nationals Weather page this year: http://www.daculaweather.com/4_track_lincoln.php as well as a new blog post with graphics: http://northgeorgiaweather.weebly.com/autocross-weather Right now it looks as though it will be cooling down after Monday and then a possible frontal passage on Friday. Still a ways out though. See y'all there! :-)

9 Replies and 2884 Views swapping cars mid event at an solo question  2884  9 Started by  Itsa914 So the topic came up at one of our events about swapping cars mid event during a solo. Not because of a mechanical issue, but just to drive a different car. An example was given of driving a FP car then changing to a ASP car. Should the times ran in the ASP car be index at the FP index of ASP Tired looking up in the solo rules, but didn't find an answer. Maybe I missed it

4 Replies and 4222 Views Street tires better than r-compounds on dirty surfaces?  4222  4 Started by  Primetime Glick Does anyone think/know if street tires are an advantage over R-compounds on low-grip, dirty asphalt surfaces I'm pondering replacements for my hardened Z214 C71s and my excuse-laden gut tells me they evacuate gravel better, while I always feel like I'm 'skating' on my impacted-gravel-covered Z214s. Maybe streets are more predictable/consistent on dirty lots but offer a lower overall grip threshold FWIW I'm eyeballing RE71Rs. $150 savings over a set of 4, too. -Adam

3 Replies and 4442 Views Autocross course design tools  4442  3 Started by  Duke W I'm the autocross chair - and by default, the chief course designer - for a regional sports car club. I thought I would contribute my method and the tools I've developed in order to design courses and lay them out on site. Hopefully somebody here can put them to good use. I use a free, easy-to-use program called SketchUp http://www.sketchup.com . It is a 3-dimensional design and drawing program with a *really* low learning curve. It is remarkably intuitive and fairly lig...

1 Replies and 1429 Views Looking for co-drive at 2015 Solo Nationals  1429  1 Started by  kombi73 Hey, I am coming up to Nationals with a small group from Hawaii Region. I have 6yrs exp mostly in SM,SMF and ESP the last two seasons. I've also been getting seat time in STU and CS cars to build experience for nationals. It's way to expensive to ship across the ocean across so I need to find a co-drive. Anyone headed to Lincoln and have an open seat Thanks, Daniel

1 Replies and 1117 Views Looking for a co-drive for WIlmington Tour  1117  1 Started by  MilesJ I had 2 co-drives lined up, you know in case the first one fell through, and now both are gone :( I have experience in the old Stock classes in a Solstice and RX8, as well as some limited STX experience in the RX8. I haven't autocrossed much over the last 4 years but I signed up for this Tour and I'm not bailing just because my rides dried up. I'm open to anything.

2 Replies and 1216 Views Help with classing a 1995 Saab 9000 Aero  1216  2 Started by  bdrsaab Hey, I'm new to Autocross and having some trouble determining which class I should be racing in. Was hoping the forum could offer some guidance etc. Here's what I have: 1995 Saab 9000 Aero - stock this car should be putting out 220 hp w/ 250 lbs-ft.

0 Replies and 806 Views SportsCar Writers -- Need a few more  806  0 Started by  spitfire4gp The 'discount' entry deadline for Nationals is Tuesday and I still need a few more people to cover classes for SportsCar. Even if you’re there only the days you run, I may be able to use you depending on how the run schedule works out. Writing talent isn’t really the high priority. Just being able to be there and see what’s happening is what’s most important. Especially if you enjoy talking to drivers about autocrossing. If you can help, reply to me at rockyspitfire4.com and give me yo...

0 Replies and 996 Views R Comp Search  996  0 Started by  CastleWorks Hi All, After 23 years away from Solo competition, I am planning to 'come out of retirement' I am looking for R comps in the following sizes but having difficulty finding one of them. 245/40-18 285/40-18 (having trouble finding this one) I see Hoosier makes a 295/40-18 in their catalog, which I can live with but I have not been able to find a distributor who has them. I am open to other manufacturers if anyone has recommendations. Thanks! Kevin
