  1. Does anyone know of a company with a Dynojet dyno in the Phoenix area, to get some runs on? I used to use AZ Dynochip, but they appear to be closed. I checked with AMP, but they won't touch FWD. Most places registered on the dynojet.com site seem to use their dyno for internal use, are very specific (like for ATV/UTEs or diesel trucks), or are no longer in business.
  2. That Neon can rev! I ran out of gear/rpm at a couple places on that course.
  3. That was an interesting and fun course! Sorry course workers, when I murdered a bunch of exit cones on my 5th run 😞 Here's my best clean run (45.406)...
  4. I've been using them for a long time too. They most recently made my autocross duty turn down tips.
  5. While my best runs do tend to be my 5th or 6th run, I also miss the old format that allowed watching other people run, and talking to people.
  6. Hah, the course looks like it is hair pin shaped. Nice videos... looks like it was a lot of fun!
  7. It's been pretty obvious that the new owners of that facility never took it seriously. Friday night drags have been gone for a long time, and they only have open drags during infrequent special events. Those are so crowded that I got 2 runs in in a whole night. 20 years ago I could get 4-6 runs, and even leave early. The city/county should be trying to help find a replacement drag strip. With FIR and Speedworld gone, there are no drag strips left in Maricopa county. Then I read news that street racing is on the rise, and new laws have been passed to combat them. History has apparently been lost. I wonder how long (or if ever) they'll take before they remember why having public drag strips were a public safety solution.
  8. Whoever lost their phone on the backside of the course, did you get it back ok? I've been very curious about the condition it was recovered in!
  9. The last windshield I replaced was by Owen at Perfect Touch Auto Glass (480-335-4740). I'd use him again.
  10. I've noticed that I'm coasting where others are still accelerating, so I really need to work on my comfort level and keep pushing around those bends. That would probably help with my lift over-steer too, that caused me to spin in that box to box transition near the start. Thanks for all the videos!
  11. Thanks Kim, I see it now. I missed that middle part where you said to select an item. I just saw the screenshots and saw that you pick the regional menu... and assumed it would display all items specific to our region. I played with it and see that all those region items have the option to put our region's logo on it.
  12. Weird, when I go to "Region gear", it just lists Men's and Women's. If I click on Men's, it then lists apparel with "REGION LOGO HERE" on them. This is from a desktop, and I also tried their mobile site. Do you know if you need to make an account on that site for the region specific items to be displayed?
  13. I just wanted to say thank you Phil! I autocrossed for a while 20 years ago, when my youngest was just a baby. I took a long break from autocrossing and recently started up again. Then with the COVID restrictions until recently, she was finally able to ride along with me on Sunday, and you captured those moments really well!
  14. It looks like the pictures are still getting uploaded... so be careful if you buy any before they're done.
  15. Here's mine, and I'm glad my new goofy turndowns seemed to make the dB meter happy! I've had to leave prior events early because of my clutch, but I decided to launch very easy and then hammer it, and no clutch smell! I'm hoping the clutch will last me until the summer break.
  16. I always thought the CAC summer events were fun and different. A little road course to break up the normal seasons. For other locations, from I recall anyways, Exponent Failure Analysis was a good site. At least from an end user perspective, the only weirdness was that we couldn't talk about what we saw there 😄
  17. I was also concerned there might be an event prohibiting sound checks next month. Hah, I'll give that phone db meter a try. Thanks for the suggestion Kim!
  18. Would it be possible to get an updated sound check at this upcoming event if I'm not registered for that event? I finally got my car's issues sorted, and am planning on attending next month's event. My car is only a little louder now, but if it doesn't pass then I was hoping I'd have time to do something about that. I just want to make sure that I can run at the December event and not get rejected, since I missed events 1-3 already this season. Thanks!
  19. Awesome! I had a black 2000 Cougar that I got me started autocrossing. It was a solid car... I can't wait to see yours running the course!
  20. Hey Scott, and what's new with you? I got new springs, wheels, tires, rear sway bar, down pipe, and a different tune. I'm really excited to test out the new setup... I just hope the sound check doesn't object.
  21. Thanks Lance. I get it... just bummed I missed that part of the notification, or else I would have signed up before tonight.
  22. Hrm... I see that now... Is that going to change anytime soon? I don't think I'm opposed to being a member, but I didn't realize that it would restrict this event in any way.
  23. So I tried added my daughter, who has been wanting to watch for a while, and it rejected that... saying I needed to be an SCCA member in order to invite a guest. I don't recall reading that anywhere before. Is that correct?
  24. The comment about allowing up to 29 visitors (2 per driver), will the visitor(s) need to be registered, and would that be during the event registration?
