  2. Safety glasses are probably fine by the word of the rule. It's not "conventional eyeglasses" and is at least designed to protect from fast/sharp objects. I would just follow up with "how much are your eyes worth to you?" It's similar to the question around what the cheapest legal helmet is... "How much is your head worth?"

  4. I found this at racer.com. Everyone in PASR should complete this survey. SCCA stands for the Secret Car Club of America, and the Club would like to keep it that way. That’s a statement that’s not true on oh so many levels. SCCA’s Solo department would like your assistance in determining the long-term direction of the Club’s autocross program, but to do that, not only does SCCA need your expertise, knowledge, and experience, but the Club wants you to share this survey with friends who are former autocrossers, non-SCCA autocrossers, and those who are autocross curious. The 27-question survey that you can fill out any time between now and May 20, 2024, should take about 10 minutes to complete — although if this is anything like a weekend autocross, the H Street drivers will need a little more time than the A Mod folks. Fortunately, this isn’t a timed competition. This survey is extremely important. It’s member input and feedback that led the Club to 200 treadwear tires, CAM, and Solo Spec Coupe, all of which have immeasurably altered the trajectory of the sport. And much like when you head out for that final run of the day, it’s once again time to look for improvements. The survey begins with the normal questions you lie on, like age and income (PS: please don’t lie on those). The next 20-some questions, meanwhile, are the ones that dig into the meat of the matter. How would you describe your attitude towards autocross participation? What types of events do you prefer? What’s your single biggest motivator when it comes to autocross participation? What’s your pricing comfort zone when purchasing a competition vehicle? What class philosophies are most attractive to you? The list goes on and on — until it ends at question 27. Once you’ve completed the survey, SCCA expects some of you will head to social media to air your…err…additional thoughts, but before you do that, please also type those comments in the box for the survey’s final question where we ask for any additional thoughts. No, the SCCA isn’t a secret Club — it’s one that grows and develops through your experience and insight. Surveys like this help shape the sport and the Club into something you’ll enjoy more, along with entice more enthusiasts, develop more community, and grow more camaraderie. And that’s way more better.

  5. I've seen some smaller scale professional transporters hauling 1-3 cars on the interstate. That might be an easier option compared to finding 7-8 others willing to go in on the transporter, but I expect it is probably more expensive than the large hauler split 7-8 ways, which is itself more expensive than towing yourself out there, which is more expensive than street driving yourself out there. Cal club stopped with the transporter because too many people eventually started getting their own tow vehicles and trailers, so they couldn't find enough people to make it economical. For the recent Crows Landing Tour, I count roughly 12 drivers from AZ who towed, vs 4 who self drove, and one I'm not sure of but I think he towed.

  9. Here is my best TO run at 37.280 on 4/28/24. It felt very sloppy and had a lot of turn-in and mid corner understeer all day. It might have been my worn tires. I changed pressure and it helped but still had a lot of understeer. Maybe it was the lower grip in Tucson vs Phoenix and I should have softened my front bar or firmed up my rear shocks. Either way, the car did pretty good though there were plenty of spots to clean things up. From the video I can see that I am still not looking ahead enough, still late on power, not trail braking enough, not smooth enough, etc. etc. Having video with data is proving to be helpful in seeing and understanding my driving flaws. If you see anything I should take a look at or think about, please let me know as I don't know what I don't know!!

  10. In my humble opinion, car balance during any given maneuver is a function of car setup + driving style + surface conditions. The actual shape of the driven line rarely impacts this, and usually only when a different line encounters different surface conditions.

  11. In the past some people from CA and AZ would get together and hire a truck to carrier several cars both ways. I think someone from the CA region organized it, but don't remember who now.

  12. I suggest the course design created some very challenging spots that "encouraged" under-steer.😉 The last minute change to the finish added to that. It wasn't your tires, Dave......😂
