One thing I am concerned about - I keep hearing so much about the noise limit issues. I mean, how restrictive is it really? I'd hate to go all the way up there and then not be able to run. I can't believe my Miata is all that loud, but I've heard tales of otherwise street legal cars still being too loud for that track....nor cal racing club... they have two one day events at Laguna this year...
Does this put a smile on your face? Pineapple cans they work and tastes great!the noise restriction is an issue for many cars, however, rather than trying to reinvent your exhaust system, i have found that the simplest solution is to either upshift right before the sound meter (works well with my gearing), or lift at the meter.
yes, it will rob you of speed and will have a slight impact on your time, but still better than impacting your time all the way around the track with a restrictive exhaust.
exhausts routed to driver's left, and upward seem to dissipate the best as well.
To be fair, they told us about the conflict a couple weeks ago. I've been sick with the "holiday cold" and the holidays didn't leave me with a lot of time, so I just got it posted today. And as far as being bumped goes, I agree that it looks suspicious. However, there's no way for us to know for sure what went on. It could be just as they say. The only way to move up the pecking order is to get more people out to our events.... What took them so long to figure out this error? How complicated is the Buttonwillow calendar?
Why can't they just tell you the truth and say that they bumped AROSC? ....
We already have a rather full schedule for 2008 but it might be interesting for next year. However, we've looked into El Toro in the past and had no luck with respect to holding competitive events there. Never the less, I would appreciate it if you would PM me the contact info. Who knows, maybe things are different now.Bruce
Have you considered El Toro for a TT?
I was there today and took the following pictures. I know of a company that rents the track for sound tests; it appears that it could be rented for a TT and maybe an Alfa Cup.
I have some contact info if you see an interest.
I've checked with TCRA and they assure me everything is all set. I'll check again when we get closer to the event date.HI Bruce, Was just checking the schedule at Buttonwillow. They do not have TCRA scheduled for April 19-20. They are showing Northern Cal Racing Club??? Whats up with that?
