Re: Knox Dragstrip Tonight

I'm hoping the weather will be good the weekend of the 29th. I'm coming down for the autocross and oping to get Kim out to run her car ( and mine ) that Friday night. Oh, and those AWD Scoobies are great in the 1/8 mile... it's the OTHER 1/8 that causes them to run out of steam :) My cousin's bugeye...

Re: ~~~~~~LINCOLN 2012~~~~~~

I typed something but then remembered that BSP is not what it was last year....lol Lee Piccone ( sp? ) is an interesting factor in that class. He was always fast in FS in his Mustang. SMF.....Jinx is the favorite I'm betting but Tom Kotzian is a great driver too. All depends on how the Mini he's dri...

Re: ~~~~~~LINCOLN 2012~~~~~~

Yeah, Gas buddy seems to work pretty well. Gas has typically been cheaper in Ohio but going to Peru it was the opposite. Gas was $3.59 here and $3.89 there. I don't want to even think about it right now. Gas has stabilized here over the past 4 days ( $3.75-$3.79 here ) and word has it that by Monday...

Re: ~~~~~~LINCOLN 2012~~~~~~

Mark, good to "see" you this weekend. I caught the Tire Rack sticker out of the corner of my eye and it took Kim a second to realize it was you. We have people leaving tomorrow from here and my caravan is leaving Saturday morning. We should be there Sunday aroudn lunchtime. We run T/F so w...

Re: 2004 SSP Corvette for sale!

Brian, Thank you for the post and you are correct David didn't wash the car but after spending a little more than $200 to get the outside detailed it turned our looking real good. It was funny because the guy that did the work has the picture in his show room of what it looked like before and after...

Re: 2004 SSP Corvette for sale!

Robert, we've only met once and doubt you'd remember, but I'm very sorry to hear you're selling the car. I have seen this car in person back in the Leman days and I'm amazed that the car has such low miles...lol David never washed it, so it was hard to tell. I saw your post on sccaforum about the wh...

Re: Corvette Advice

Ok, gotcha. We run similarly here @ SCR, but with our classing, there's no Pro class here. We have Driver of the Year based on PAX, so our PAX standings matter as much as class standings. Our street tire index has an additional multiplier for that reason so that fast drivers that can't afford ( or d...

Re: Corvette Advice

This thread has gone insane.... :rockon: Since I'm new to the classing structure @ ETR... I'll ask the stupid question. Is the stock classes there same as national events, meaning you can run R-comps ? I think I remember you guys having a tire index class for stock class/SP/P cars as well. I noticed...

Re: ~~~~~~LINCOLN 2012~~~~~~

I have a bunch of little things to get done still. I'm heading to Knoxville next weekend to help Kim move into her new place. She's about 50% there already but I'll be helping move the garage stuff over. I am going the truck's brakes this weekend, going over the car for basic review, making sure not...

Re: ~~~~~~LINCOLN 2012~~~~~~

amazing how quick it filled.

We ( SCR / Ohio peeps ) reserved a good chunk of rows 8 & 9. I think we needed like 45 spots or something like that between 2-3 regions.

Re: Corvette Advice

One thing that is encouraging about the C5 still is that it's STILL competitive in it's classes, especially SS and SSP. In stock class trim it's' still a super comfortable car for trips and daily driving and at any time you can step on the fun pedal and not be dissapointed. Prices seems to be flatte...
