Re: AX2 Course

Thanks Paul, Actually, I got rid of a very old Photoshop when I upgraded the PC and got upgraded Windows a few years ago... only have Photoshop Elements now.

You need to update your picture Grant. People need to be prepared when they see your single seat monster with the funny roll bars.

Tried to calculate new points.... ugh!

I know it hasn't been published yet, but I used the committee's spreadsheet to try and see where I landed. I jumped 2 classes to AX5 without changing a thing (it's primarily the wheels recalcs). Oooooooh my! For those into bench racing (aka PAX), that's about 1 sec.. Woof - that's alot to make up wh...

Re: Driver door window drop-down function-Boxster

The first thing to try (may be in the owners manual?) is to cycle your windows full up and down and hold the button down for 10 seconds at each position. It may require 2-3 cycles. The theory is that the system "re-learns" the up/down positions. May - or may not work. I've had a glitchy drivers wind...

Re: Online Registration for Autocross #7 –October 24, 2009

I've put out a plea to the 914 club guys. I'm also thinking the LPR players aren't used to on-line registrations and will just show up.... should be 2 dozen more?

Any other sites we should put out a reminder and prod a little?

thanks,

Re: Online Registration for Autocross #7 –October 24, 2009

tried to find out through MotorsportReg - how to get the credit for the prior (cancelled) AX?.... is it built into their system somehow?... or are we to get a refund less the 4.5% in the mail and go ahead and register with new authorization on a card?

thanks,

Clarification of Instructor duty/privledge...

... not a complaint.... nobody in mind... just want to understand a particular aspect of the instructor/student relationship.
