Re: autoX #4 results?

Hi, .... probably delayed because Joe was not at the last event... maybe vacation time or just plain busy. I'm sure he'll do his magic when he gets the time. But, I agree, we've really been spoiled by his generous and speedy efforts to create this report. As a footnote only, not too many years ago, ...

Re: Proposed Immediate Change to Showroom Stock PAX Indexes

Hi Brad, No, I don't think people put that much energy, weight and emotion into the hypothetical PAX index. We've had some healthy discussion this year and a few of us would like to see an even playing field so to speak as long as a PAX system exists. And also, no, It's not that 'damn' important or ...

Re: Proposed Immediate Change to Showroom Stock PAX Indexes

Rebuttal: With all your knowledge, insights and willingness to participate, I respectfully challenge... 1) This change helps, not hurts the PAX index. It has been shown that several cars choosing to be SS have been given a lower (favorable) factor than an identical car that would be 'pointed out' in...

Autocross Points Classification Tire Points Update...

Apparently, the President believes that this is the place to view proposed changes to 2015. I had already forwarded this proposal to the AX Chair for inclusion in the Board Meeting discussions for consideration of changes/updates based on the above instructions. The Board will push the Sept. time ta...

PAX factors vs. Street Stock classes...

I propose either: (A) Eliminating the Street Stock classes from the PAX results as they are incompatible with the points classification system used by GGR. Street Stock factors are very favorable vs. having the same cars pointed out via the classification system. OR (B) Have a duel system upon regis...

Re: I'm 6'0" w/ 2002 986 -- rollbar extensions needed for tr

However, you may want to get added protection with the BK extension (about 2") for piece of mind. And, if you like the track and want more, you'll find race seats that'll get you lower too. If you like going with instructors, you'll need to get him/her a seat like yours (for their safety). I used to...

Re: Rain contingency?

Yes. With exceptions - a very few have had to be stopped over the years due to the elements, but for the most part, it's a go. It's often referred to as 'the great equalizer' and street tires will rule the day.

Re: Newbie questions re: AXing and track days

Hi Patrick, ... merely a suggestion - since there's still a bit of time before you launch out, go to Amazon and get "Secrets of Solo Racing" by Henry Watts. It's about $10 and loaded with good information and will help in your preparation. After you've enjoyed either type of driving, read it again a...

Re: Helmet Recommendations

about this time of year... Dec... s/b IO Port Racings annual discounts. They're in Moraga in the east bay. I got a new one there last year - and you can try one on for size while you're at it. http://ioportracing.com/

good luck Zach - see you out there.

Re: Proposal: AX senior citizen = optional work assignment

Why are people 65 and older called senior citizen? why does social security start at a stated age? why do restaurants offer senior discounts? yadda yadda yadda..... are you feeling left out Andrew?

Re: Rules Meeting Short Notice

Wow. Alot of people out for the weekend.... or Saturday night late gatherings... or get up late on Sunday and find out they need to show up to a meeting in 3 hours in Larkspur? Really bogus. This is not worthy of you John.

Proposal: AX senior citizen = optional work assignment

I would like to see GGR add an option for senior citizen members. I propose making the work assignment "optional" for PCA members who are 65 or older. Coincidentally, the SF region of SCCA also does this.

thanks,
