Re: 2017 Area SCCA Schedule

OMR announced its Solo schedule before the OKC MiDiv date was known. The rest of the MiDiv schedule was tentative and on the radar, but OKC became known and official last. I'm not in a position to remark on behalf of the OMR board, but I do know that all of the MiDiv Solo weekends are individual poi...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

The new printer should make it pretty easy to tape work assignments to the side of the trailer. I think that would help people a lot. And no need to pass crayons between registration and work assignment stations. It could be fruit, adult novelties, car parts, etc. Team ATF filter could be on red pap...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

According to Dave Whitworth, who sold us our FarmTek hardware, using the live.axti.me option is better when we make the leap to offering live timing for competitors. By offering competitors timing through a WiFi connection, he experienced additional lag. Also, concerning the lags we had on Sunday: A...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

Good Great system with tons of potential. Very easy learning curve once connected, and I'm excited to see where we can go with live timing. The divorced car queuer and cone counter was a great idea, especially with the excellent pace of launching cars yesterday. We delivered on giving a lot of driv...

Re: MiDiv Solo Event #1 Topeka HPT 4/21-23

In April, Heartland Park Topeka will host a RallyCross National Challenge, Track Night in America, and a MiDiv Solo weekend. Over a few weeks, you could drive the same car on their rally area, road course, and autocross pad, and still have a free weekend at the end of the month to hit the OMR region...

Re: Solo performance street tire FAQ

Falken has an updated RT615K+, and Tire Rack has a $100 prepaid card offer when buying a set of four through April 2017.

Pricing seems decent.

Re: Class For 93 Prelude VTEC

I think STS is where the car would land in Street Touring because of the "NOC" (no otherwise classified). STF has a specific list of allowed cars - mostly later-model compacts - with no catch-all like some of the other ST classes. The stock wheels, along with any alternate wheels up to 7.5 inches wi...

Re: Solo performance street tire FAQ

If you're an early adopter, the Hankook RS-4 should be at Tire Rack in early March in enough sizes and diameters to be legal for SCCA Solo this year.

Usual caveat: the tire supply chain from Korean manufacturers tends to be a gamble.

I know many OMR participants live in Arkansas, and a ridiculous piece of anti-enthusiast legislation was just introduced into the Arkansas House of Representatives. House Bill 1547 changes the Arkansas Antique license plate allowance from vehicles 25 years and older to a minimum of 45 years. A one-t...
