Question Colorado Springs Meet?

Who's up for it? I was thinking it would be fun to get everyone together and find someplace to go grab a couple of beers and some lunch. I was thinking about a canyon run up to Divide, Cripple Creek, whatever. Let me know guys.

Well there is the ice autox this Sunday up at Rainbow Falls Park that a few Subarus will be at. Maybe we can meet there even if you don't want to compete?

Mark -

Where is Rainbow Falls? That may be interesting. However, there is NO WAY I can compete on my Ecsta 711s. Kumho = All Wheel Skate.

Tom - Good to hear from you. Regarding the time and date - I was thinking sometime in late February or early March. Keep in mind that we will be meeting in the Springs area, which is a decent, if not fun, drive from your neck of the woods.

Paul,
Rainbow Falls is outside of Woodland Park, on I believe Route 67 North, go down that road approx 10 miles, sign is on your right. Turn right into the park, cross a bridge, you'll come to a T, turn left and follow the road, look for the pond, you can't miss it.

There were two Subies running RE92's, they did quite well considering. You'll be fine on 712s, and you'll gain some valuable experience on what to do if you run into that situation on the streets.

One of 'em was me...but scoobies with snow tires did much better. I was really surprised to learn that I actually beat some people (er I mean the car beat some other people), because it felt like I was driving in slow motion.

Mark- do you know who we should contact to find out about changing classes for the rest of the rally-x series?

Probably not, as I kind of scared myself with those tires. How often are these ice rallys held? (these are ppscc race series, not part of the coloradorally series, correct?)

I think they're run in conjuction with them. Some if not all the events count toward the Rallyx series. You can drop your worst event.

Right Dave, the PPSC runs a lot of ice races, only the one a couple weeks ago counts towards the SCCA's rallycross series. The next event for that will be on dirt in March.

Did you ever get on the mailing list?

I tried to get on the coloradorally.org list, but they were having problems with their server this week. I was told that it should be back up and running later this week.
Since I'm going turbo, I'll be in open class, so...Does anybody have suggestions for 'cheap' dirt tires to use during the rally-x events?
Thanks.

Dave,
Since you're going to be in the open class you might as well get the best, most aggressive gravel tire allowed. Off the top of my head I'd say the Michelin L/M forest series, or Colway Rally MS in a 195/60/15 (you can order these from sales@demon-tweeks.co.uk England for about $50 each plus shipping) Another option is go to I think, www. pegasusautoracing.com and see what they recommend as to a gravel tire and throw them on a set of 15" steels. Or you can wait a few more days and ask the locals what they use.

I will be at JC Sports this Saturday if people wanna stop by and visit early. This Sunday is "family day" if I take Saturday for me, so the ice races are out for me...

I like Diz's idea of setting up a meet for the end of the month, but since the next SCCA autocross is 2/25 (and I'm thinking about doing it on slcik street tires), I have to spend that Saturday as family day instead. Maybe the first weekend of March for a C/S meet?

So, it's looking like the first weekend of March is going to be our time. We can finalize more on the where & when as the time draws closer.
