Thanks for the advice already.

Parts include:

Tein springs, tokico shocks, AEM intake, Tanabe super medallion hyper exhaust. With these parts what class would I be in? I was thinking ST?

I should be there in my 89 Civic Si.  Torn between running ST and STX this year. It's the white one that is noisy.

Just thought I'd post a recent picture of my car to show you guys what I have been up to since I've only made it to one event this year and that was as a spectator.  Looking at the schedule I am going to try to run the 10/23/2010 event at Trails.

Uhhh, OK.

I'm Kevin Funk.  I live in Athens, OH.  I have a 1974 BMW 2002, but I haven't been out to a race in a while.  Sometimes I run in EP, sometimes in FSP, with the #74.  I used to run a red miata as #43 in CSP, circa 2002.  I once ran a rental ford focus in rallycross.... I once drive a giant chicken shack in the 24 hrs of LeMons...

Don Myntti from Kimbolton Ohio.  I am a total rooky noob.  I have driven all of one autocross lap (the very first drive on a just completed car).  My one lap was at the Grass Roots Motorsports $2010 challenge.  I will be honing my skills in the OVR this year in what appears to be an E-Mod car.
The Car:

75 Datsun 280Z with a 350 Chevy, single powerstroke turbo, powerglide, a cage, and some suspension mods (low buck stuff).

The car weighs 2550 with me in it and makes about 450 hp when I connect the boost hose.

Michael Ford from Marysville, Ohio. Been racing off and on for two seasons, although not consecutively. Tried to get into autocross a couple years ago, then lost my job. Then tried again, and drove my car into a ditch just a couple weeks before the start of the season (D'oh!). Now that I am gainfully employed and a safer driver, I am looking forward to finally finishing a season Smiley

I drive the red 'yota Celica GT-S, 77 ST (or whatever they've changed the name to this year).

Tony Alfano, Lancaster Ohio by way of Florida and North Carolina
Was a driving instructor, course designer, safety steward, and event coordinator in the Central Florida Region.  Past cars included 2 91 MR2 turbo's, MR2 spyder, Mazda Miata, and an RX-8.  Currently don't have a suitable autocross car-hence the 2011 Elantra I borrowed from my wife for the first points event.  It was better than expected, but would love to co-drive with someone in a more appropriate car at our next event.  Unless we are going to start an MPG class.  Cause I would clean up in that class.

Hello:

I'm new to OVR as I'm on assignment for a few month's to Piketon, OH.  I live in Slidell, LA, my office is in Oak Ridge, TN and yes I travel a lot.  Been in SCCA since 1995 with Chicago my original home region.  I may know some OVR members as I raced several midwest events in the '90's and early 2000's and a few Nationals.  Looking forward to this weekend and chip some rust off.

I will be in H Stock as the EM car is in Knoxville, TN sleeping peacefully.

Hello All.

I'm Stephen.  I ran the last event, PE #3, in the White Evo X GSR, which was my first event ever.  SMS was rough to me. . .

I'm trying to figure out the outside wear on my front tires before the next event (already "maxed" camber (-2  Roll Eyes))  debating nothing, a camber bolt, and a drop(springs or coilovers).

fix driver first, most tend to overdrive esp on street tires & Stock suspension. I would recommend higher pressures in the tires to help stiffen the side wall of the tires as well.. will reduce the rollover & outside wear some.

will do.  Curious if it's safe to go over tire mfg's recommended pressure, because I ended up decently above it after a couple runs.

Generally, yes.  I have road raced up to 42 lbs in front and 50 lbs read (hot pressures) with no issues.  That was when a 60 series was considered a low profile tire.

Former Reynoldsburg HS grad (Eastland voca Auto shop) Joined military in 79 and did not make it back to the home city after. Used to go to A/X at Powell Speedway when Pete Smith and  my dad ran a 68 bug.Pete built a bug chassis contraption called a damper and also won at Mid Ohio. I remember a slalom event called Trade Winds Will Blow in 68 or so that they raced in october I think,rain and cold with @&$ Wind. Still have the dash plauqe.I also ran one of the first compact cars at National trails,Toyota Carina yellow with black deck lid. Won class during one event. My name is Bob Colbert,currently living in Knoxville TN.Yep I do get back home some time to visit Mom and Fam. Last time was Thanksgiving,What happened to my old city(brice and livingston) area. It used to be the street racing gathering point so we could head to the back road ay Pennys to run a few races. now seems like the Robbery capitol of the city. My question  for my racing family in the north is what kind of 92 Miata racing parts do you guys and gals have for sale  ? I have a 92 MX5 just purchased and would like to fix it up a few notches. PS If anyone thinks a Skyline would work down here let me know.

Bob,

Welcome to the OVR Forum!

A few of us here remember Powell Speedway.  It's where I learned autocrossing.  When specifically did you run there?  I started running in 1980, so we  missed each other. But, you probably ran with some of the folks like Glenn and Elsie Hanninger, John Fergus, Phil Alspach (still active), Andy Toth (active when I can drag him out), George and Donna Clark, etc. Pete is still active running a Porsche powered A-Mod car, along with his daughter Jenny.

I am sure TurboEd and others will be happy to sell you Miata stuff they have cluttering their garages.  Really, the Miata is a good car out of the box and you probably shouldn't touch a thing til you get acclimated to the current classing structure...unless you are like a lot of us who can't leave well enough alone!  If you do anything, buy the right performance tires for the class you plan on running, but even these can wait until you get a few events under your belt.

Rich thanks for the reply. I have never ran AX until two years ago here in the ETR local.Won first event in class on my BD.Been trying hard every sip nce and locked up an ST class jacket for the 2011 season in a 97 civic coupe HX stock cept for the cold air on star specs. Prob spent thirty minutes or so at the Ackerman lot on Thanksgiving day just looking it over and building courses while driving around on it. A lot less sealer than we have and less poles/curbs. I would to run with OVR soon at one point during this up comming season. Yeah Pete and John Fergus I know from Dad. Sort grew up at times in Petes garage along with a Guy named Ken with the mechanical arm. They built the first Damper for AX then Road racing. Again thanks OVR and would welcome any offers on Parts for my 92 miata. Gotta try to get it going like John Browns.(Toledo last summer)

Hey guys. I just moved to OH from FL (yeah dumb move I know). I've been running my GTI in STX with the Central FL Region. I'm currently trying to sell it but if that doesn't happen I'll be driving it this season. I'm going to try to get to as many OVR and Cincy Region events as my work and finances allow. Now, on to the pictures:

Hola!

Shawn here.

Only made it out to 1 event last year due to crazy work schedule.
It was my first time, and I had lots of helpful friends give me tips and it was a blast.
I had the white 2011 S4 (White Whale).

Just got rid of her for something more "compact", and should hopefully be able to show up to most of the events this year.
