Re: Palmer Motorsports Open Track May 29th

Any idea what "Experienced" drivers means? I've got ~14 track days under my belt (2 at Palmer), but am not a licensed COM driver. Would I be allowed to run?

Re: Federal Tires

Looks like the Swedish Cup is back in play! I'll do my best, maybe I'll be un-opposed this year like I would have been last year. Planned on running a TT at NHMS too but had a really bad alignment slip so skipped the Sunday. If the "saabaru" even counts :-D Also, ended up with 235/40/17 AR1s. Shoul...

I ran Nankang AR1s as well and i re...

Re: Harness // rollbar options

Well, decision was made... https://i.imgur.com/jLsXXpw.png The Saab is going to stay much the same as it is and probably be the track car for this whole year. As the RX8 gets closer to being ready for track duty, the Saab will get some DD treatment, aka dynamat and the rear interior re-installed. Pl...
