  1. Have one new delivered Friday to test fit on my car. To big not going to work for me $130. Will mount and balance for free if you want to pick it up at my shop in Rochester, NY https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Hankook&tireModel=Ventus+R-S4&sidewall=Blackwall&partnum=54WR7Z232XL&tab=Sizes
  2. Anyone going to The Mitty at Road Atlanta this weekend? I'm planning to be at the top of the hill on the outside of 10a in the hauler/RV. Look for the 40' white Freightliner with a sleeper cab.. I believe we will have a simulator and the weather is looking good. I'm excited. If I get stuck an extra day in California for work this week and end up being late for the Mitty, I will be unhappy.
  3. Experience driver coach and Thunderhill racer who is the Current 2017 SFRSCCA, NORPAC and Rookie of the year is looking for a seat for the Thunderhill (or any race). I'm very interested in being part of a team that I can help out in the shop and at the track. Resume' attached ConnorSolisBio1 FINAL (1)pdf.pdf

  5. After racing - professional and club for 19 years - I am now going back to Charter Fishing. My job as a racing technical director for a pro series is feeding all my racing needs and my ex wife wants all the race stuff out of her house! I hate eBay and Craigslist - just too busy to keep on with selling one item at a time and my landlord sold my rental building so I must move out immediately or sign a 12 month lease with the new owners. Right now everything is in a 2500 sq foot race prep and build shop located in Jupiter Florida near PBIR. It is full of parts for 3 cars - all in the build process that I have not touched this year. I have used eBay since January so it's not everything you need to finish the build but I would rather sell super cheap then move into storage and continue working online selling. It fishing in the Bahamas or eBay. I don't have a complete inventory but the parts still available include a BMW E36 rolling chassis that can go M3 or 328 that has a crazy amount of work done on it - but way more to do - than completed. Same with a E46 that is stripped and has about $20k in new parts setting in bins including a stroker kit and a huge amount of great condition used stuff. Has body parts to go M3 or 328. I have engine parts, Four E36 (almost) race heads that are really used that all to be finished or reworked, racing valves, springs retainers, used pistons, some new, cams, but no blocks or engines (and I cant remember what any of it is - so you need to know). Four new 5.5 race clutches. Also have tons of used Euro M3 E36 parts - chassis parts, some engine parts, two ecu's and a stand alone DTA ecu. I have a 24 foot Pace trailer that is pretty beat up looking but in good mechanical shape with new tires and hubs (just towed cross country and back with no issues). Tons of tools both general shop tools, fab tools and BMW specific tools for engine building and chassis maintenance . Selling the tool boxes, shop cabinets, fire proof cabinets and bolt bins as well. Also TIG and MIG Welders, Hydraulic tube bender, fab table, jet saw, engine stands, engine hoist, jack stands, racing jacks, shop stereo system, security cameras can go after all sold. I have enough pit equipment for two cars including radios, repeater system with antenna, cool suit boxes, some crew clothing, 6 NASCAR Hurd guns (big money boys) all are new or rebuilt, a few hoses and regulators, used crew helmets, fuel jugs, fuel buggy with $1K fuel transfer pump, Imsa fuel rig, scale pad, pyrometers, digital tire gauges shock gauges, tire moisture meter, tire dryer, unbuilt tire rack and some hospitality equipment (plates, silver, food baskets, hot plates, micro wave, generator, 2 small refrigerators, table covers...) 17 years in the collecting racing stuff. Interested in cash, chump car rental seats, trades and I am selling at .10 on the dollar if you buy a bunch of stuff. I have a dropbox with photos of many of the items. call me 561-921-7903 and talk to me about which lot of items you are interested in and I can send you a link to the photos as I can't get them to load here.
  6. SAMPSON Racing Radios will be on-hand this coming weekend with a full vendor trailer to offer product and full tech support starting Friday AM. Eddie, our head tech will be located next to the tech area. Look for the SRC flags mounted on the vendor trailer. Make sure to stop by and say hi. If you have any radio questions or need some tech support he is a good guy to know Looking forward to a great event! Cheers, Shawn Sampson
  7. I am new to this whole cheap...ish...racing thing and am looking into both ChumpCar World Series and LeMons racing, but I live in AZ, and most my friends that are willing to drive and join my team still live in CA and I travel for work (Construction), so it makes it hard for everyone to get a decent amount of seat time in the race car, and deciding on a central race to ease traveling costs on everyone also seems like it will be a hassle... so I was wondering are there any race clubs or series that are on the cheaper side like ChumpCar and LeMons that are not endurance races? that a solo or two driver teams can do? any cheap car rally cross or rally series? I am hooked on this ChumpCar World Series but not so sure my mates are and I would like to get all in on racing. Thank you for taking the time to read this post and for any and all advice given. Ronnie
  8. Hey everyone I'm Ron, I just found out about this thing called ChumpCar and LeMons racing 2 days ago, at age 35 and loving to drive cars fast you would think I would have found this by now but you know... Anyways I am looking to get my first Chumper and start building her up in hopes to spin her tires around the track for the first time in 2018 (Is a year - year and a half reasonable for a first time build?) I am on here today asking for advice on what is a good car to start with, though I know many have their own personal preferences on make and models, or engine size and weight, I am looking to get a more overall picture of what cars are easy to work on and build. Honda civics are a dime a dozen with an endless about of parts and after market upgrades and they are pretty easy to work on, but is it better to go for one that runs good from the start with a higher liter engine staring me at a higher VPI like a Ford Mustang needing little to no upgrades, or a car that runs good but has a small liter engine starting me with a lower VPI, leaving room for more up grades like a Toyota Tercel? As far as the build itself goes, I went school for a general bumper to bumper exp. we worked on everything except transmissions (Though it was the biggest section in the 600+ page curriculum), I tore 4 cylinder/ V-6/ V-8 engines down as far as possible and put them completely back together every day for a good month (The engines never got started so I am a little nervous about timing belts/ chains) we studied and removed and replace everything (Non- Body) on the cars from tires to ball joints, drum and disk breaks, tie rods, shocks, struts, coil overs, you name it. After I graduated, I worked at a Midas in Santa Clarita, California for a couple years where again I did so much more than just oil changes, tires and alignments, I replaced more valve covers and oil pans than I can counts, I have spent more time upside down in the driver seat of a car chasing electrical issues and brake switches, I have dropped a number of transmissions (Midas shipped them to trans shops to be re-built) and I have continued to work on my cars and trucks even after I left Midas. so overall I feel confidant to build my first Chumper myself and with the help of my gear head friends, and the few things I can't do I will take to a shop if they need to be fixed like a transmission. ok enough rambling from me below are some questions I have after looking into this for only two days, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read this, and for any help that is offered up, I look forward to this journey and am excited about taking the first steps today. I am budgeting $5000.00 for this build (Just the build, not racing fees or gear) is that a good amount or is that too low? Once I have a car, what upgrades are worth spending the extra points? (exhaust, headers, ecu...) What upgrades are not worth spending points on? (adjustable coil overs, sway bars...) Do any weight reductions cost point? (I didn't see anything in section 4 of the rules about weight reduction, but i only read through it once) What are good things to remove from a car to reduce the weight? Automatic or Manuel Transmission? everyone was a first time racer, or built their first car, or put their first team together, what were the things you found difficult your first few times out? what things were simple? What things caught you off guard? Any other advice a first timer should know or consider? p.s. sorry if this is hard to read, English and Grammar were not my strong suits in school...
