Automotive Marketplace / FS: 225/50 16 RE-71R on Enkei RS-III
« on: September 09, 2017, 11:13:05 AM »

Hey I'm switching classes!

My RE-71's have 7 days of solo on them and maybe 300km on the road.  Great shape and still a long ways away from needing a flip.

The tires are mounted on 16 7J +51 Enkei RS-III which I discovered last winter brand new in boxes from 1995.  Wheels are in the range of 15 lbs.  5x100 bolt pattern.  They are still in excellent condition with no rash, inspection stickers still intact, and near perfect paint except for the nut seats.


Automotive Marketplace / FS: Street Class FRS or BRZ Wheels & Tires
« on: April 04, 2017, 03:16:27 PM »

I've changed wheel size, so would like to make space in the garage by selling my auto-x wheels from last year.

Set of four...

Motegi Traklite
17 7J +45
5H PCD100 with 73mm hub bore, although I have Subaru 56.1mm hubcentric spacers fit.
Wheels are in great shape and were only put on the car for events.  No rash or bends... practically as new condition.

Tires are 225/45 Bridgestone RE-71R with about 7 events on them.  They were flipped on the wheels at the end of last year, so they should have more than a few events left in them.  Stored over winter indoors.

$1200 obo.
PM please.

Hi all. 

The recent forum down time was caused by some unexpected problems with the server/host. Thanks for your patience.  Hopefully everything is back up and running as it should now.  If not I will be working to resolve.

SASC Events / 2016 Solo Season Update
« on: March 14, 2016, 10:10:42 PM »
Hi all,

Myself, Reijo, Tom and Wayne presented to the Ft Macleod town council this evening, and we are pleased to announce that the club will indeed be back in Ft. Macleod for 2016. We had a positive exchange with the council and it's exciting to continue and develop our relationship with the them and the town.

Dates will follow in the next couple weeks as a few details are finalized, but expect to get going late April!

Other Events / SCCA Nationals - Team SASC

Looks like they've started running day 2 already.

Again, live results here:

I talked with a few of the guys after yesterday...

Reijo is in an amazing 6th place out of the 300 something who have run so far, in PAX with only 2 of his 3 runs in CSP because the car broke.  He seemed skeptical that the car would be repaired in time for today, but optimistic that he could find another CSP ride.

Stephen and Murray ran first yesterday and dealt with rain.  Stephen's use of expletives on Facebook suggests it didn't work out in his favour, but he still managed 5th out of 54 in BS.

Ryan and Cam are 6th and 10th in SSR.

Seems like there is plenty of opportunity for trophies.  GL all. 

Technical Talk / Tire Rack TW200 Testing
« on: July 30, 2015, 08:49:25 PM »
Tire Rack just released one of their awesome tire comparisons featuring the RE-71R, Rival S, RS3 V2, and the largely unknown Kumho V720.

Check out the full test here:

It's pretty obvious which tire is the one to have... I certainly feel willing to try the V720 though.

SASC Events / 2015 Solo Schedule
« on: February 23, 2015, 07:36:46 PM »
Reviving a banished post, and pasting from the Facebook page... here are the dates for the coming 2015 season.  As was in previous years, these events are held in the Town of Fort Macleod, at the airport there.


1. April 25/26 (Sat./Sun) FMC#1
2. May 30/31 (Sat./Sun.) - SoloPro Driving Schools - instructors from USA
3. June 20/21 (Sat./Sun.) FMC#2
4. July 25/26 (Sat./Sun.) FMC#3
5. Aug. 21/22/23 (Fri./Sat./Sun.) - Canadian National Championships - note Friday is a Test 'n Tune and set up day for the Nationals. Banquet etc. will likely take place (TBA).
6. Sept. 19/20 (Sat./Sun.) FMC#4
7. Oct. 3/4 (Sat./Sun.) FMC#5

The reasoning was to avoid the Packwood National Tour and Pro Solo in July, Knox Mtn. Hillclimb on Victoria Day long weekend, Lincoln Spring Tour/ProSolo and the SCCA Solo Nationals and ProFinale. Apparently the Westerner is not ready to set dates yet and discussing with Stuart, we decided to go ahead and set what dates as best as we could for Fort Macleod. Apparently there are other groups wanting to rent the airport apart from us so we needed to get these dates set up.

Technical Talk / Your Favourite Street Tire and Why
« on: January 25, 2015, 01:50:44 PM »
It's that time of year again, and for the first time ever I'm actually interested in street tires.  What is everyone's favourite?

I was thinking I'd be going with the Dunlops myself, but noticed the Advans and BFG's are on Tire Rack special right now.  (Advan's only 180AA... which won't matter locally...)

I had R1R's on the WRX last year, and don't think I'd do it again.  They come with way too much tread depth, with a co-driver it was a huge struggle to keep them cool...  and they wore incredibly quickly.  In about 3000km I easily went through more than half the tire.  Note Tire Rack has 200AA R1R's available now (not that I'd expect them to wear any differently).

Driving Discussion / Tire Chains
« on: December 08, 2014, 07:15:55 AM »
Anyone have thoughts on tire chains?

I have yet to drive my FRS in this weather, and the more time that passes, the less I think that I'm going to.  Instead I'm driving a Dodge Power Wagon, which with locking and/or limited slip diffs is pretty interesting.  I know Chris S had a truck with chains out on the lake a couple years back, and I've been thinking about buying some myself just to try out.  Four all for wheels...

Question is... can I actually drive the truck with chains on it?  Or do I need to doddle around everywhere and keep wheel speeds low?  Is there any particular type that is best?
