  7. Leeann and I wanted to say thank you to everyone that helped clean up the mess on and off the track after her little coolant spill. Also we wanted to say sorry! I promise it was a new hose that just burst! All seems good with the car and should be back together once the replacement hose arrives.

  8. What an interesting course this was. I was totally expecting to run much slower but much to my surprise it was such a fast course. Thanks again to the team that makes this possible. We were taking pictures again and working on technique. The sun was sure making it difficult though. Shooting pictures from the outside of the track is limited as well, those darn bushes are too tall around the fence. You'll see when Judah (my 12-year-old son) was shooting some of them the fence made it into the foreground. He is trying to start a YouTube channel and would appreciate it if you like the pictures to hit the "like button" on some of his videos to show your support! He started a tech/editing/photography channel as part of his homeschool extracurricular activities. Check him out at https://www.youtube.com/@JWolfTechTV Here are the pictures. We didn't get any of run group C or time only. Here is my best run of the day.

  9. Well, I'm not sure after this event if I can press on with AutoX..... That was so much fun. Even with the drama on track it flowed well and was exciting. Both my boys were giggling with excitement after their runs. We did try and get some pics but with our lens really needed to be on track to get close enough. There are some decent ones in there. Track Pictures-- Here was my run. Sad that I took out 2 cones, it would have been really good if I hadn't.

  16. What a great event AZsolo just held for the autocross school! A big thank you is owed to Kei and all of the instructors and volunteers who gave up their Saturday to teach us up and comers and novices how to be better drivers. And, I owe a an extra thank you to Mark Shrivastava and Brian Peters who gave me great instruction today. And, while I wasn't able to put what you told me today into practice during the school event, I'll do my best to put those pearls of wisdom into practice soon. THANK YOU ALL.

  17. I think Ben's reply comes from a long grueling weekend of a handful of volunteers busting their arse to make sure the rest of us have a good time. Many MANY of us went above and beyond this weekend and overall there was a great result behind it. Don't let that hide that fact that we are tired and we have yet another event to put on in very short order this Friday. If we do not get more volunteers to step up, you are going to see some of the regular VOLUNTEERS drop...then instead of worrying about details like above, you'll be worrying about who is going to get everyone registered, teched, waivered, gridded, started, not too mention having a course to run on at all. One does not need experience to volunteer, one just needs a willingness. We'll teach you the rest. Thanks, Lance

  18. I want to really thank the crew who worked the event. Thank you for sacrificing your Saturday to help the new drivers really be able to learn and get seat time. Thank you to the Instructors for donating your Saturday as well. Students, thank you for coming and we all hope you learned a lot, had fun and plan to participate in future events. A by product of the school on Saturday was the sense of 'Community' with the students and instructors at Sunday's event. The students and instructors had good interaction during Sunday's event and it really seemed to bring everybody in as an autocross community. Thank you again to everyone and we couldn't have done it without y'all!!! Kei ๐Ÿ”‘

  21. Hopefully it stays as is. My just built car, which is also the fastest I have, has the easiest PAX of anything I own.

  23. In street class you can stuff as big of a tire as you can fit on the stock wheel width. Someone running nationally in DS has already stuffed 275's on a GR Corolla (back before the SEB did a take back on classing from DS to BS).

  28. Had a lot of fun myself, even when I lost traction before the final corner with the BRZ on my 2nd run. Track driving is addicting; too bad my wallet doesnโ€™t like it! ๐Ÿ˜… Got to learn how to control RWD better again, but couldnโ€™t stop smiling after I was done. I think the slaloms could have used a few more cones to keep speed down, but I still had a blast, and I hope we can do more of these.

  29. Oh Oh!! I learned today that Kevin does NOT like his unique "RidgeLine" called a "truck" ๐Ÿ˜‰. But it did seem to function well in truck mode! ๐Ÿ˜Ž A lot of fun on the course today... too bad we only had three runs on it! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  36. Great Event as always, aside from the temps. Whew. The boys and I did get a few good pictures, some track pics, and some of the event. I decided to include all the pics this time, even some from the neighboring motorcycle event. We were testing out a new prime lens on the Sony so some of the shots are zoomed out pretty far. I'm asking the same thing as last time. If you like a pic head over to my Youtube channel and like a video as a thanks. @DrivingForwardBuilds 10/15/23 Event Photos Here was one of the good ones.

  37. Just looking on Google maps. If you look at the Desert Diamond Casino, directly to the East is a large parking lot. It is identified as World of Illumination and appears to be used during Xmas as a light show drive through. It looks large and open, there are light posts but appear to be well spaced. I will try and get by to take a look, have only seen it on Google maps. wp

  38. That is all true. However, Discount Tire is fairly picky on what tires they will put on a wheel. For my set-up, they would not put my wide tire on my narrow wheel (I asked). The guys at Lift Shop are more willing to do "unusual" fitments and have experience with it. That being said, Tire Rack can refer you to a lot of mobile installers that have tire mounting and balancing equipment in their van and will do the install at your house. It seems very convenient and I'd be very tempted to try one of their mobile installers if I wasn't trying to put such a wide tire on a narrow wheel. I'm not saying they can't do it, but it isn't easy and I wanted to use someone that I knew could do it. If someone on this site had offered up one of the mobile installers as having that ability, I would have jumped at the chance to go down that path.

  39. If you can find a Discount Tire with a sharp manager who has consistent staff that stay long term, and you develop a relationship with ONE specific technician who knows what he's doing, yes, I've used them before. But I could not find a location with all of the above. The good guys kept leaving. And know this, not every installer knows how to use that equipment properly. I am very careful with who touches my equipment. I have had wheels marked, as well as balanced incorrectly. Cruz essentially makes no mistakes, has been there a long time, and absolutely knows what he's doing. That's my reason for going back to him. Oh yeah, that SCCA Discount is nice too.๐Ÿ‘
