  1. So, this is a good conversation to have and I've been thinking about it as well. To be technical, Sean's F150 shouldn't be in CAM T either. It's probably my fault as I told him to register in CAM T without really thinking about it, as it just looks like a CAM T build to me. Personally I love having all these old builds in CAM T and yes, we are all pretty competitive...that's what makes it so much fun. I also understand if others in the class do not want to race against the technically non-CAM T cars. If anyone does object, please speak up and we'll get everyone classed appropriately.

  5. It will be registration like normal events. Usually we keep reg numbers low for events like these... we're working out the details of the event currently, we should have something to post on it soon.

  7. So we aren't going to be running a driver's school this year. Instead, it will be a test and tune day. Well be making some announcements about it soon, and if they relax restrictions, we should have some instructors annular that day if you'd like some help. But that one is a bit out of our hands at this point...

  8. This seems like a positive offer of help and a step in our quest to return to “normalcy”. If there is paperwork available that recognizes our events are within safe limits, who wouldn’t favor doing so? Let’s see what’s possible. By the way, seems like Dave (again) is taking on way too much himself, with all the new challenges we’re experiencing. MSR should have a dedicated person to manage and monitor, not the Director. Someone with prior experience would be preferred. Anyone willing and able?

  9. Some school districts will allow fans at football games. For instance: Chandler High will operate at 25% capacity for spectators to begin the season, CHS Athletics tweeted. Same with Hamilton, which had almost all of its tickets sold out for Friday's home opener against Peoria Centennial on Monday. Some (but not all) have a similar statement. Phoenix International Raceway will allow 8400 people at the November 6th event. Clearly there is a way to hold normal events. It looks like there are specific steps that must be taken to exceed the 50 person limit. It seems fairly s

  12. I do my own and helped helped several others here out with theirs. I have turn plates and caster camber gauges which are not totally necessary but really speed the job up. I will advise against buying the QuikTrik alignment tool set if that was a consideration as it just sucks. What Dan posted above will get the job done, anything more than that just helps do it quicker. Before I had turn plates I would put masking tape on the steering wheel next to the column and the column itself and I'd mark both with wheels straight ahead and wheels 15 degrees turn right and 15 degrees turned lef

  13. Well if you want budget friendly: I won't say I am a pro by any means, but a camber gauge can be a relatively simple tool. I just used a level (basically a known straight edge that also has a parallel face) with some nuts zip tied to it so that it can touch the wheel instead of the tire (anything that is the same height will work) and a digital angle finder (these are cheap and handy on amazon <$30 with many uses). Works good enough for me. For caster just put some grease in a trash bag and put it below the front wheels (You could also use two metal plates with grease between them) and

  14. Now I don't feel so bad about beating Sean! 🤣 But yeah, I love the competition and the variety of machinery. I raced once in CAM here in Phoenix a year ago or so. The field was smaller and all the cars were fast. I got whooped! I was a little bummed there wasn't a better place to compete with the Corvair when I finally moved back from CA. But 11 cars in CAM-T makes it interesting! Pretty stoked right now!

  15. I say run it. I like it and it runs similar times anyways. Just makes me work a little harder. lol I'm not even really sure what class mine would be in. It's just a fun build that I want to enjoy.

  25. Registration opens this Friday, October 2nd, at 8pm. We are going to be under the same restrictions as the last event. A few changes though, we are going to move the morning schedule up by 30 minutes, so gates will open at 6:30am, registration and tech open at 6:45am and will close around 7:45am. We're shooting for first car out by 8:30am. The afternoon schedule will stay the same as the last event, afternoon drivers can be on site at noon, first car out at 1pm.

  30. Don’t mind at all adding the date here, good info, but I’d kind of like this thread to stick to just the dates info? Please move any follow-up event discussion to its own place. Make sense? A place just for event dates and perhaps a link to that info? Thx.😃

  31. And/or if it looks like a 1987 model or older you're in. I.E. my 1989 super zoomy Corvette CAM-S Car is a 1989, and all C4 Corvettes from 1984 to 1996 look like a 1987 thus, I'm in, if I sign up.

  33. Banner, the SCCA guide would be a good start. On page 57 is where course penalties (including specifics about pylons) are discussed. https://solo.stlscca.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/2020-SCCA-Solo-Rules-3-16-20.pdf You'd want to get there early enough so that you'd have time to walk the course at least 2 times. If there's a walking group where someone is explaining specifics about each section of the course, that would also be good for you... but I'm not sure if those are going on right now.

  34. There was some confusion last event about run/work. Sorry if this hasn't been communicated very well - there will be some website updates coming to make this clearer, but I also want to take a moment to set the expectations here. Pre-covid, with no restrictions on entry count, we were reliably stuffing 45-50 cars per run group, across four run groups. People could do their competition runs in A, B, or C, and then do their time only (TO) runs at some point after that. With the 50 person entry limit, it's not feasible to pull that off operationally. Some heats would just not have enoug

  35. We did get the scales functional again, so we will probably bring them out for that event. Can't make any promises, but we will do our best to have them there.

  37. Agree that the SCCA has spoken that we must follow local rules. They have had many events in states that allow. I just disagree what the "local rules" are. I volunteered to investigate. I believe it is a paperwork issue. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to admit it, but I don't think so. I think all of us want to get back to normal - SAFELY. You agree?

  38. SCCA regulations say that we have to follow local ordinances in this, so until Arizona/Maricopa county lift restrictions we'll be following the 50 person limit. I know it sucks, but I think the compromises we've put in place have allowed events to still function at an acceptable level.

  39. So I realize that I've always been more of a "rather beg forgiveness than ask permission" kind of guy, and I'm aware that clubs and other larger organizations have to be more careful in this regard. I also understand the Steering committee might have it's hands tied with Topeka on this one. That said, something seems amiss given the following link. https://www.westworldaz.com/events2 There are a whole host of larger than 50 people gatherings planned for Westworld (which is in Maricopa County) starting on Sept 25. The Maricopa County Home show is the same weekend as our next e

  41. A few things. First, to have to transition to a completely new site, and redefine where everything goes, and then anticipate the flow of people as well as functions (Tech, staging, pits, timing table, start, finish), this doesn’t just happen. Then, to pull it all off this smoothly speaks highly of this Team. Well done. Now toss in a completely new surface arrangement, with a mix of parking lot and road course, and to be able to blend all this well was a major accomplishment. Great course, BTW. I’m sure lessons were learned for next time, but wow, well done Border Region. Looking forw

  42. With the only con being the lack of Spectators, this format was pretty well received. We had a good time, felt safe, and we got the most of our dollar for a “half-day” event. Hats off to you guys!
