some stock pedals for EF Civic?

Apparently SEB has decided my aftermarket pedals are no longer legal (isn't that wonderful?).

News!!! / Notes from the RE
« on: December 27, 2011, 02:09:55 pm »
A few changes are in order as we enter a new year, a new competition season and strive
to redefine our purpose as a club and to increase the region’s importance to its members.

Hot on the heels of New Year’s weekend, with the promise of getting together a few weeks later at a well-attended Awards Banquet at Chef’s on January 21, and with not much happening anyway, there will be

NO JANUARY MONTHLY BUSINESS MEETING.

Our next meeting will be on

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2012 AT 7:30 PM

AT THE OLYMPIC RESTAURANT


4611 Genesee Street, Cheektowaga, across from the Airport Holiday Inn, approximately1-1/2-miles from Transit Road,  839-4022

The Rose Garden has been an excellent location for out activities for a long time, but not so much anymore.  The Olympic is a conveniently-located meeting place, serving good food at reasonable prices.  Let’s try it for a few months.

Meetings will move to Monday evenings and begin promptly at 7:30 PM in order to accommodate our new meeting place’s schedule and to, hopefully, put some of the Business back into our Business Meetings.

MEMBER INPUT
As the Western New York Region evolves, our direction must be determined by our members.  Please come to the meetings and express yourself, offer your ideas, become involved.  Or, speak with any of the 8 Officers and Directors. 
WNYR is your club.  What do you want that to mean?

Solo (Autocross) / Geauga Lake Autocross
« on: October 17, 2011, 08:31:47 am »
Went down to Cleveland yesterday and ran an event at Geauga Lake (used to be an amusement park, now closed down). The site is really interesting, LOTS of room, pavement is kind of variable -- some nice, clean asphalt, other places where it's really dirty and apparently never cleans up since the place is sort of in a swamp. The locals were telling me the Subies love it. Lots of camber changes, almost no hard objects. Site course area is probably about the size of Toledo.

Had fun in spite of "Champagne Run" weather.

Might be worth a road trip next year.

Solo (Autocross) / Re: pdf's on new SCCA site
« on: October 17, 2011, 08:25:42 am »
What I would get was a blank page that looked like it was trying to open, but wouldn't complete even after an hour (went to lunch, came back, same thing). Got this in 3 different browsers. This went on since the latest Fastrack came out.

This morning after seeing this thread, tried it again and it opened the .pdfs normally. Jim, way to go, you fixed another computer  :)

Solo (Autocross) / pdf's on new SCCA site
« on: October 13, 2011, 01:18:05 pm »
Anybody else have problems with getting pdf files from new scca site? I can't get any of them from scca.com, have no problem with pdf files from any other site.

Same issue whether I'm on Chrome, FireFox, or IE9. Same thing when I'm at home on my laptop. (Both on Win 7 Pro fwiw).

Kind of stupid that I have to use iPad to read scca pdf's....

That's getting a little weird Jim, don't see how it's possible for Dave to have won the class, and for me to win PAX. Seems like that shouldn't be possible????

Links don't seem to work, guessing it has to do with the new SCCA web site. Maybe in a day or two.

Solo (Autocross) / Re: Competitor Input Needed: Road Tire Class(es)
« on: September 09, 2011, 01:56:16 pm »
George's suggestion (for ease of reference):
Novice - same as today
Road Tire - same as today
Karts - same as today
Street - all of the ST* classes
Pro - drivers that want to compete with the best
Prep - anyone that competes on Rcomps or slicks, or trailers their car.

Personally, I kind of like George's "Prep" class; it's not exactly an intermediate class, but it gives somebody on sticky tires a class without having to go into Pro.
