    2010 Miata, and 2015 C7
  1. Interesting. Thanks for the response. Will have to look at the alternatives.
  2. All, trying to figure out how to get Throttle and Brake Position information from a Solo 2DL in an NA. It looks like maybe the Solo 2DL does not accept the ODB info from the NA. Can anyone offer advice or point me in a direction. Going to start Travis in an NA H2R challenge car. Hope to get the same information we get in his Tag Kart.
  3. Looking again for a caged 1.6 miata for the H2R challenge series. Let me know if there is anything out there. Thanks ! Stan
  4. Looking for a caged 1.6 Miata for the H2R Miata Challenge. I don't see much out there right now. Please let me know if you know of any potential cars out there.
  5. 2010 MX5 needs a new top. Suffering from the top tear on the drivers side by rear window. Any recommendations for quality installers in the Austin area ?
  6. Hi my son Travis has been competitively karting for a couple of years. He drives Tag Junior and LO206. I suggest you contact Tim Lobaugh at Trackside Karting (facebook https://www.facebook.com/Tracksidekartingservices). He has 4 garages at Speed Sportz. He sells Compkarts. They have a new model specifically for LO206 applications. It is a combination 30 and 28 MM tubes. If cost is an issue you can buy a 1 -3 year old Tag Chassis and put a LO206 on it. Save about 2K. If you want to try it out at a Speed Sportz club event Tim can set you up for an arrive and drive. For Adults, the best local fields are in LO206. You can find competition at SS, GCKI, NTK, HCKC, and DKC. In the LO206 you can put a lot of time in the seat for about 1/5 the cost of time in a Tag.
  7. Karting can be a good option. We started Travis in karting at around 9. We took him to HCKC a year earlier and he wasn't ready. Travis in now 12 and just moved up to junior karting. My track driving has moved from cars to karts. The family shares a passion for karting and there still might be the possibility of moving to cars in a couple years. Keep karting in mind. HCKC is only an hour from Austin and with a membership you get unlimited practice time when there isn't a race. 8-12 is a cadet kart and a Mini Swift engine. Easy to tune and relatively reliable. Fast enough to keep the kids interested.
  8. These are large jack stands that I don't want to deal with. Free to a good home. Someone wants them I will leave them outside for pickup. Contact Stan at: [email protected]
  9. Have a Haul Master Weight Control Hitch for sale. It has the head, bars, and trailer mount for the bars. Used once. $110 Contact Stan [email protected]
  10. I have a new in the Box S2000 Buddy Club Seat rail passenger side. Never been out of the box. $90 OBO. Contact Stan [email protected]
  11. Looking to merge AIM data with Gopro video. Would prefer free software, but not required. What is easy to use and align data/video. With Travis karting I can show him video and I can show him data, would like to merge so he can see exactly the min RPM's and where it is occurring in the turn. Will have lots of sessions so it needs to be easy to get something relatively usable. Thanks ! Stan
  12. Hi All, I haven't been very active here since I started focusing on karting with Travis. The karting is going well and we are looking for a bigger trailer with AC. My question is around the difference in towing an enclosed 7x16 and 8.5x16 trailer. We have a Tahoe. Some places I read the extra width causes the mileage to drop a lot. There is also the difference in seeing around a 7' trailer versus limited sight lines on an 8.5. The 8.5 trailer is interesting since it would provide a lot more space for working on the kart inside. Any feedback with be appreciated. Thanks ! Stan
