Re: STM tire rule.

There was at the time. But I think that revolved around a couple of cheap tires coming to market, and the fact that used 140's were still available. I think it's been decided that those cheap 140's were kind of crappy? Maybe? A lot of people, myself included, were still on 140tw Federals at the tim...

Re: STM tire rule.

I don't think Hoosiers would really keep the spirit of the class.

Agree with the others, it doesn't really matter. Even at 140+ the fast people will be on 200tw anyway.

Re: Veloce Top Times

Yeah, I'm not convinced he cut the power but my kart was way, way faster regardless. I don't believe their spiel that the karts are all the same speed and just handle differently.

Re: veloce after banquet

I'm in for karting, but do not plan to attend the banquet.

That said, I'm not sure I want to ride on one of those torture racks for 7-9 minutes. The normal 6-lap race beats the hell out of me, I think 10 laps would be about my limit.

Re: Regional #12 Results and Points Updated

You forgot to DQ my times and I bumped Joey to third in points.

Re: Regional #12 post-event

Which tires were you testing Lucas and what did you think of them? I picked up some Maxxis RC1s for track day stuff. R-comps will definitely take some getting used to, and a lot more heat than I got in them yesterday. Hopefully they'll wear well for hpde/TT stuff. I think fresh 'Stones are faster, ...

Re: Regional #12 post-event

Course was fun (and fast!), weather was just about perfect, and we got 5 runs. It was a great send-off....I'm gonna miss that place. Brian or whoever handles the results, will you DQ or +5 or whatever on all of my runs? I was testing tires that aren't legal for STM and I don't want to affect points ...

Re: Congrats Aerial

I've always had hard time at Adesa after the Toyos and I think it's the tires that are completely done by late fall. The wheel spin at the start was worse than on any other surface I've run this year. Two sets of tires per year is a must. Agreed, this was my experience as well. Adesa is usually my ...

Re: Regional #10 Smokies Stuff

Loved the course, easily the best of all the events I've done at Smokies.

STM is going to be a great battle right up to the final event.

Re: Program TMPS sensors

Yes, every passive system I've come across has a reset button or menu option. +1 for brief changes in speed not triggering the light. I'm assuming it is smart enough to disregard the outer tires going faster than the inner tires in a turn.

Re: Program TMPS sensors

Hey, it's unsprung and rotational mass. The miata uses some wizardry with the speed sensors in the ABS - nothing in the wheel. Passive systems just use wheel speed. If one wheel is turning faster than the others consistently, it assumes that tire is low and turns the light on. No wizardry, just pro...

Re: Program TMPS sensors

A lot of the better tire shops will have a generic tool that can probably do it. I'd call Fisher, Matlock, Murrel Bros, etc, and see if they can help you.

Re: ONE DAY BMS events

Yeah, Smokies sucks. What about Adesa? Are we limited to only one event per year there?
