SASC Schools / SASC Winter Driving Schools - Ghost Reservoir Venue Lost
« on: December 05, 2017, 08:39:53 AM »
The SASC is unable to secure use of the Ghost Reservoir for the 2018 Winter Schools. TranslAlta holds title to the reservoir (including the submerged lands) and they feel that the risks associated with our ice driving activities are too high and therefore are not allowing us to continue our schools on their lands.

If folks have other suggestions for potential locations to host these schools please let us know.

If you do get the Bofengs, this is the open source programmer to use;

I can help.

Can the Bofengs be programmed to be legal (1.0W max)? Or is that a hardware issue?

I rather like these (https://www.amazon.com/BaoFeng-LYSB00E4FO2TW-SPRTSEQIP-Dual-Band-Programming-Support/dp/B00E4FO2TW/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1511835446&sr=1-8&keywords=baofeng+uv-5r) and other forums (thanks Stephen) seem to also like these

Or we can just replace our worn out Midland radios with new ones ($65 US a pair):
https://www.amazon.com/Midland-GXT1000VP4-36-Mile-50-Channel-Two-Way/dp/B001WMFYH4/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1511836916&sr=1-5&keywords=gmrs+radio

Do NOT buy them from Amazon.ca, as the price is ridiculous (over $260 each with shipping charges added).

If we do this we can have them shipped to the border (Sweetgrass) and I could pick them up in the new year, save some money for the club.

If they move the RS/R/STi from BS into DS there is going to be some mighty upset WRX owners.

It would be really nice if there was more than one car to choose from in CS.

For next year's scoring group, I am assuming that the SSC class would be grouped with street touring classes.  Or would street classes be a better fit?

I'd say street touring

Driving Discussion / Re: Help With Ice Dice Set Up
« on: October 20, 2017, 02:49:00 PM »
Most folks seem to run a 10-20mm narrower tire than the stock size and a 1-2" smaller diameter wheel (to keep costs down and get a softer sidewall). The CSCC has some details on max studs per tire and stud size here: https://cscc.speedracer.ca/forums/rallyx-news/2017-cscc-ice-dice-series/

As for brand you'll here a lot of different opinions, I'm a fan of some of the cheap brands on PMCtire like Weslake, Sailun, Champiro etc. some swear by the Hakka's

I thought they disproved the Hakkis last year on the ice, if I remember correctly many were faster on other brands and the super amazing hakkis were getting beaten up left/right/center by the competition.  Now that being said the Hakki 9's are out now which come with some new improvements that may tip the scales back in their direction.

They were allowed provided you left the studs it came with installed.
