  1. as of now, there are 34 solo driver spots open. Just send your driving resume to the event organizer. you probably have a week or 2 before it fills up, if it does at all.
  2. Thanks for the update! Sounds like you have a lot going on! Best wishes on a speedy recovery! Nice to see you back in the garage.
  3. I know we've covered pads for our racecars, but I haven't seen anything regarding the tow pigs. I was wondering what everyone uses for brake pads on their tow vehicles and I'm looking for suggestions. Also, my rotors are warped a little and have been grooved since the truck was almost new. Are the rotors worth machining? A quick check showed new front rotors @ ~$90 and new rear rotors @ ~$110 My tow vehicle: 2016 Ford F150 SuperCrew 4x2 3.5EcoBoost with Max tow package. My fully loaded trailer (with car) is about 5000 lbs. So....pads and rotors....go!
  4. NASA practice!!!!
  5. And there are no TT cars in their paddock spots in the video. I also noticed a plane in the area. Looks like a great view from up there!
  6. Craigslist is a good place to start shopping for trailers. Also, the classifieds on this board!
  7. So here's a link to some pics I took of TT on Sunday. Some turned out nicely, others just OK. Feel free to download for free. If you repost or distribute, please give credit to: KWM Photos Thanks. Enjoy. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157706247111104 @@mkarr, @@V6Donut, @@lobster, @@cabowabo, @@kfennell, @@Vorshlag-Fair to name a few, sorry in case I missed you.
  8. Agreed, it would have taken too much time to get that Parsh ready for SM. LOL!!! I'll be down there Sunday hanging out.

    Looks like we're off to a good start with the TV coverage, ESPN going ad-free again this year: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/motorsports/espn-has-some-great-news-for-formula-1-fans-in-the-united-states/ar-BBSBDWH
  10. All my tie down hardware came from Northern Tool. I haven't had any problems with it. I'm not sure if they make them, but some airbags on the rear of the Sporttrac might help with "squatting". I have never run anything like that, so maybe someone else can chime in.
  11. Looks very elegant and comfy!
  12. I thought the same thing.....Lightning McQueen!
  13. Well I didn't realize you were a previous owner. I'm preaching to the choir then ;) AND you have a welding machine?!?! Loaded for a track weekend, with trailer and car, you'd be right at the max capacity of the Explorer. Seems either you need more capacity in a tow vehicle, willing to run it close to capacity, or stuck with tow dolly idea. Pretty good discussion here: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/tow-dolly-vs-trailer/133418/page1/
  14. I agree a tow dolly can be safe, so don't take my earlier post to say that it wasn't. I just don't think it's safe for the health of an S2000. Dolly on rear wheels: The nose on an S2000 extends enough that the angle of the tow dolly on the rear wheels would severely decrease ground clearance and you could be dragging your front bumper all the way to the track. Dolly on front wheels: This would be the proper configuration, I assume. Still though, the angle of the car would put the exhaust and rear bumper dangerously close to the ground especially when encountering bumps/humps on the road. In addition, the rear wheels on the ground would be turning the diff, driveshaft, and transmission while wearing the rear tires at a high rate than the fronts, but I assume you'll be changing tires at the track. Here's a link to this topic in regards to the S: https://www.s2ki.com/forums/s2000-talk-1/car-dolly-moving-868431/ You can see the suspension is super high in the photo, but that car does not have the drivetrain in it. The miata body shape might offer a bit more clearance for dolly use. Believe me, I'd love to see another S2000 on track, and I don't want to discourage you if you decide on that platform, but the struggle with low ground clearance and the S is real.
