Re: The Great Computer Give-Away!

Tom, That is outstanding of you to offer up a full Silkrip ORR setup for such a worthy cause! You rock man... And since you rightly mentioned that some may not like having HAL run the race for them, I'm prepared to help the cause too. A while back, Robic discontinued the model SC505 stopwatch with 1/1000th of second readout and went to 1/100th second readout. Me being the stopwatch kinda guy I am, I picked up a couple extras from the factory on closeout. So as a Consolation Prize, I’ll give...

The Great Computer Give-Away!

Tom King ·
Bunny has arranged for the Ely Lions Club to conduct a raffle during the May festivities in Ely, with the winner receiving a Silkrip ORR Computer, a Silkrip Test Station, and a Silkrip Source Code License - total retail value $1,535.

Rumor has it that Blue will be offering one of his own computers (a Robic 505 stopwatch) as another prize in the raffle!

I have an idea, the two people that win each of the (special) timing devices have a competition in September to see who has a better time.

Tom the problem with HAL is that I think it would be hard to hear him, oh wait you don't have to, seeing that he is doing the driving and so you can take a nap on the way down the course.

Tom King ·
Dave, great idea on the competition; the nap notion not so much. You give the Silkrip ORR Computer (aka HAL) too much credit. I am constantly amazed at those of you (like Blue and Charlie and many others) who can compete at such a high level with just a stopwatch. But it still takes a lot of techie skill to use a computer, although Charlie has suggested the next logical step is to connect the infernal gadget to the accelerator pedal...

Tom I am sorry I thought, with your connection you had access to Michael's HAL from Night Rider. That were the nap came in.

2001: A Space Odyssey The ship's on-board computer was HAL (the HAL 9000), and appeared to turn violent against the crew members in the second half of the film, in order to safeguard it's primary mission. Or something like that. Open the Pod bay doors HAL. I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that. Asa

NO THURSDAY TECH INSPECTION IN ELY.

Lanny Lowman ·
All, Everyone should take a good look at the Schedule. You will notice that there is NO TECH INSPECTION in Ely on Thursday which is the day before the Shootout. Be very concerned with your setups if this does not change. There have been very few if any rule changes so best to be prepared and get in Tech line early on Friday morning (schedule says line opens at 8 am) If I remember correctly, Steve Mott is the only and last person to sign off on your car, so doing a car every 10 to 15 minutes...

I read in the 2018 rules that there will be tech in Ely on Thursday (p.11). Did I misread this?

Every thing is in Ely for the May event except Rookie School. It is at Speef Vegas. Look again at the rules. It says Thursday Tech in Las Vegas host hotel. Works for Sept Race but not May Race. They are still trying to get everything coordinated and it is a slow process.

Berry - Just for clarity - this is what I read in the 2018 Rule Book. Section III - Inspection, Paragraph 2 Thursday Inspection at the Las Vegas Host Hotel/Casino & Ely : "Technical Inspection will be open during certain designated hours on Thursday in the designated SSCC car display area of the hotel parking lot. In the case of a 2-way event, Technical Inspection will be open during certain designated hours at the White Pine County Park on Aultman St located across from the White Pine...

Bill, Interesting. Even I hadn't caught this update to the 2018 SSCC Rule Book. I have forwarded your message, along with others concerns to the SSCC Board today via email. I'll update with their reply once they have a chance to review and respond. We're looking forward to seeing you and John on the grid again in that wicked ZR1 at the new #NORC 2-Way in May! Berry

Official Response on the Topic of No Tech Inspection on Thursday After publishing our 2018 NORC Schedule of Events, some of you voiced concerns about the decision to not hold a Technical Inspection session on Thursday. Unfortunately, Sam’s Town in Las Vegas is not available as a host venue for our usual events, nor staff housing, during the 2018 NORC weekend. As such, the first NORC Technical Inspection session will be held in Ely on Friday at 8 AM Pacific Time. There will be no tech...
