Re: The real details

Peter Marshall ·
Brad, Thats pretty fast for a first timer. You need to be comfortable driving a bit faster than 125 for a part of the course to be able to average 125 for the full distance. Read my notes on "Winning at the Silver State" by clicking on the link on the title page to explain how and why. Your class will probably run between 09:00 and 10:00 AM. Nothing is ever for sure in these events. Sh_t happens, as they say! Look forward to gridding around 06:45 near the start area. Things to do?.... Adjust...

I have driven my car at 140mph for a few minutes on a straight stretch; it felt like it was on rails. I would like to try it for a little bit longer period of time, which is why I entered this race. In my younger days I used to drive between Dodge City, KS and Springfield, CO at about 130 mph a couple times a month, but now the idea of spending the night in jail slows me down; my wife would not like it very much and it would be a bad example for my kids. If I can handle driving at 140, I...

Brad, Welcome to SSCC. The rest have given you a pretty good idea of what to expect and the start time frame is pretty good. Most of our events get off on time and as such your class would likely leave the line around 8:45am - 9:15am but as stated sh...happens. To help with first timers we always offer a rookie orientation of the road and key points along with a Navagator class (which the driver can also attend) to help you get more competitive. The rookie class is given on the way to Ely on...

Jeff, I agree. Wish I could see some of the burn outs. But, in the 150 class I was in grid #8. Don't get to see any one else. Besides, if you're worried about 'axle rap up'....you better err on the side of getting to the finish line---rather then the side of the road. :> ))

Re: roll bar / harness questions

Keith Lockliear ·
Hi Mark. In the 110 class you are not required per the rules to have a bar. Up through 150 avg (165 tech - Grand Sport) the rules call for a 4-pt bar. I have the Autopower in my TA. Does the job and it's not expensive. I had it installed by Autopower in San Diego for $460 out the door.

Chris, You shouldn't have any problems cking out avail. traction devices for a 69 Camaro. Ck out the local speed shops, etc. Don't know what city you're in---but I would 'post it' for our group. Never know who your neighbor might be. Also ck out Summitracing.com Touring class is a lot of fun too. Make sure you don't go over your tech speed, and don't run your average speed ten miles over your target speed. Both cause DQ, and are easy to blow when you've got lots of HP and top speed avail.

Re: Roll Bar needed for Grand Sport Div. ?

Your car will need a roll bar to compete in the GS class. First timers can not average more than 125 without a waver from me. With that car it would be plenty fast for your first time out. See you in May

We'll be there in May but enered only in the "social" class, which we understand that you can enter as long as you can open a beer can with one hand, which I've become very good at. So far I've been unable to find a replacement 500 HP twin turbo that has an automatic trans or electric shift on the right side of the steering wheel.

SSCC will have to address your question #2. I could write a book about the "damage" to your car question. Some hints; 1. make sure in advance of the event of your carriers' definitions, and policy relative to "rally", "race", "speed contest" and so on, 2. some insurance companies use this very web site as an "investigative" tool to determine whether they will or will not provide coverage, 3. virtually no insurance company will cover a car in a race, 4. every time anyone refers to this event...

The important features are: 1) loud and clear enough for your ride and speed; 2) full duplex so you can converse in the normal way; 3) earpieces for both ears -- it's amazing how in a noisy environment it is so much harder to understand conversation when it is in only one ear! I have the Chatterbox -- I forget if it's the 40 or 50. It is full duplex and has earpieces on both ears. I found it's volume sufficient for riding with Ted Zaleski in his ZR-1 in the 150 class.

Re: Rollbar re-inforcement plate question

Sean OLeary ·
I think I need some clarification: Are there feet on the tubes that rest on the floor? If not the bar will not pass for any class that requires a bar or cage. Most rollbars have a 4" by 4" plate of 3/8th or thicker steel that they weld to the main hoop feet. The larger the surface area the better. Depending on the size of the plate I would try to make the bottom plate the same size as the top plate. Mine is roughly 4" by 4" on top and bottom. As a tech inspector I would consider a plate that...

Here is his reply: Thank you for the information. I think I am headed in right direction. Regarding tires, from the TireRack listing, Goodyear Ultra Plus is not offered in 255x45x16, but in 255x45x17 the max load rating is 1387# which is below the factory 215x65x15 tire rated at 1510#. From my understanding of the rules this will not pass tech, that is why I was staying with 255x50x16 on the rear and I am limited to 245x50x16 on front.

You have a wonderful opportunity ahead of you. Since there are no spectators allowed in these events, the best way to see the race is to volunteer as a course worker. You will either work a flag station or a "gate" making sure that no one pulls out onto the highway during the rally. Bring a video camera and a digital still camera and you will make a lot of friends by offering drivers short video clips and stills.

Yeah Jan I was a little rowdy. I dont think enthusiasm quite covers how I felt when Barlow said "1st place in the 145mph target class goes to car #.....43".

How about trying to make this a two day actual rally event. Run the faster cars one day and the slower cars the next. Think of the possiblities. A) Everyone would be able to run early in the AM thus increasing the safety for all involved. Let's face it, even the slower class can reach 124mph and in the winds which were apparent during this rally the...
