  1. Last week
  2. If this is what I think... long lost brother, is that you? Making it out always seems hit or miss with me.
  3. Earlier
  4. Update: Inspection is now passed. The car now has a restored title, registration with my same custom "BLUBAR2" plate number and insurance. Can't wait to get better with it since I've only done one event so far!
  5. Pics at link below, PM or email me for autoxer price. Tires have lots of wear left, but may be on the harder side at this point. https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/wto/d/surprise-falken-azeni-rt660/7624263546.html
  6. Did you guys go? Maybe just to watch, even? I asked Harry to bring along the diagnostic tool to return to Mark--but I don't see you guys in the results today on Monday.
  7. Just buy GOOD quality very high load rated trailer tires, keep an eye on them, and don't worry about having a single axle. Started doing this while I was in the Army- every time I stop, I walk around the tow vehicle and trailer and look at the tires and feel them and the bearing caps. Same thing again ('cept bearing caps) before resuming driving if it's been a long stop. Been using single axle trailers since about 1994. This is my heaviest car yet, but only weighs about 840 lbs. and all the equipment including which has about 16 ft of alum ramp, bring the load to about 1000 lbs. in a 900 lbs. V-nosed box single axle trailer with a ramp door in back. Before I got too old, I used to go to Topeka for the SCCA Pro Finale and Solo National each year from here. Never had a second thought about single axle. Never ever had an issue. About a 23 hour tow, and in hot weather too. Finally, I did have a humdinger of a blow out that threw the tread about 3 years ago on way to Marana Airport from Prescott. I left at 3:30 am and it was so dark I didn't notice the tire had gone soft. I replaced it in Anthem and still made the event. No different than having a tire blow out on a dual axle. The tire really came apart. It wasn't a "soft" failure. The flap flap flap noise of the tread leaving is really what alerted me- the trailer didn't do anything really funny that I felt in the tow vehicle. Another tactic to make any trailer towing more reliable is to use remote tire temperature and pressure senders (screw on) and stand alone programmable alarm display in the cab. Tire-minder is one brand I have one now and it has enough channels so when I start using my little (single rear tire, no dually) motorhome to tow with, I can monitor its tires too.
  8. Time for Craigslist or cars.com. No need to just give it away.
  9. Bump huge price drop someone come take this thing away!
  10. Has anyone worked with a machine shop that's good with aluminum (material removal and welding) that they'd like to suggest? I was about to start calling random places, but figured I'd check here first.
  11. Yokohama A052: 255/35-19 (Qty2) & 295/35-19 (Qty4). Brand new, never mounted, stored in bags in climate control. 255/35-19 $325 each. 295/35-19 $420 each. Save tax and can meet for delivery in Phoenix area.
  12. We spent $$$, a week and redid the entire exhaust from the headers back to get it to quiet down. We used a decimal meter along the way at various distances and RPMs. It hit the mark, so..... Let's see what happens in September... 馃
  13. This is probably the nicest 5th Gen on the face of the planet.
  14. Think it'll pass sound? Can't wait to see it in person...
  15. Looks vicious! That should be a lot of fun at AX.
  16. Just need the rear tires and we are going testing! 8 1/2 years in a barn, found, rebuilt and now back to life!!!!

  19. Fantastic video! Very well done. Captures the spirit of excitement and fun experienced at the SV Musselman events. A VERY good course, smooth and flowing.馃憤
  20. Found the video.... Awesome! That looks like a fun track. I hope to make it out there this summer.
  21. Front page, SSCC Additional Information, 6th line - will move that to the video section later SV/Cochise is building a police car/driver instruction area. They say we can use that area but it is TBD
  22. So there is still some chance of getting the Airport back in the future? I thought the Airport folks had other plans for that space. Don't give us false hope, buddy........馃槈 And I checked your videos on your Webpage, and all up and down, your video link, I can't find that Musselman video anywhere. How about a link, or posting it here?
  23. The last event worked out well. One video is posted on the web site's front page. I hope to get some more pics soon as well. Next event is July but we hope fire season will be over so we can run at home.
