Buckeye Trip to April 411

I just thought I would throw up a post in the new section trying to pool us together to see who was all going to the April 411. I know there are at least 4 or 5 of us interested. Better get those registrations in to Rick asap, before all the spots are full.

1. Mike Monjot 03 cobra
Mark 01 cobra...had to cancel, will have to wait till next time
2. Andrew 97 cobra
3. Tony '94 coupe
4. Chris '97 Cobra
5.
6 .

Have to add a few more spots, can't beat that

I'm currently checking into the roll-bar deal that we talked about on the car. For anyone who wasn't there, we were thinking that for 411 you might not need a roll bar. I'm hoping that is true, because i'd love to go. I already e-mailed rick, so i'm just waiting to hear back from him.

As long as its ok to go without the bar, and assuming there are openings left (only 36 can go), i'll be in for it. I'm crossing my fingers!

Exclamation Ruling Announcement On 411ax Roll Bars

Alright all you verts out there that were wondering...talked to Rick about the 411AX insurance ruling for this year, and he said that we ARE aloud to run WITHOUT a roll bar, but I believe the top has to be up if you don't have one.

I know there were a few of you buckeyes that showed interest, but didn't know what the rules were gonna be on rollbars.

Tally me up mike...I'm good to go! Be sure to keep us informed where we are meeting to make our caravan down there!

For anyone else wondering, as of today (Feb 17th), there are quite a few spots open. I hear they fill up quickly the closer we get though, so I wouldn't wait. This would be a great way to kick off the buckeye season!

Sorry Andrew, been super busy this week. alsmost 70 hours at work last week, and after friday, i will be over 65 this week. between that and ordering stuff from billetflow, autozone, hidden hitch, and uhaul this week, along with installing my new JLT CAI, and old front sway bar, not much time for the net.

Anywho, I also dropped my registration in the mail, so at least three snakes will be from the north this year. hopefully we can round up a few more

Thats ok mike...i wasn't really refurring to you...more of an overall comment that it's surprisingly a lot more quiet in this forum then i'd have imagined. Don't worry...we're gonna have the numbers comin in time...

I figured 5 of us to go down. I know we can pull a couple more. We gotta check with mike reddinger too...I know he was thinkin of it as long as the rollbar ruling stood.

I'm pretty pumped from all the videos i've seen!

The rollbar ruling is as follows...you can run without a rollbar but you must be on street tires and not race tires. If you have race tires, then you cannot run unless you have a rollbar in the convertible. These are insurance rules, not the club's rules.

Sign up another buckeye . I just sent in the registration today for the April 9th autocross. I'm in the same boat as Stavesacre - this will be my first track experience and I have to sort out a helmet (either buy one or borrow, etc..) and figure what best to do to the cobra (replace brake fluid, pads, etc.. ). Any advice there would be greatly appreciated and maybe at the dyno day or something, we can go over some pointers, suggestions, etc..

Looking forward to this for sure

Well so far, from what i've taken in from previous posts on the matter of AX, making sure your tires are at higher PSI (i'm assuming around 44) seems to be important considering how youll be takin turns so much faster and you don't wanna be rolling onto your sidewalls. Granted that seems to be something you could do at the track, and not really as big of a deal now...

As for other things that I can think of, oil changes and appropritate levels seem to be up on the list too given the higher RPM range we'll be coloring. Also seems kinda like a gimme as well, but its kind of a priceless nesesscity though.

If you have any doubt that your brakes are starting to wear, especially any tweeting, that's a must to get that in order. If the pedal is just depressing a lil more, topping off those DOT4 levels couldn't really hurt either. If you happen to have a strut tower brace that covered the engine compartment, it would be a good idea to toss that back on for more structural regidity during all those twists and turns...I know some people took them off because it covered a good part of the engine and didn't make it look at "pretty"

As for any other pointers, well, as you mentioend, we'll be sure to carry it on at dyno day. For a rookie that hasn't even been to an event before, I know that I sure seem to be oozing with information

Hope that helps to at least get you on yur toes with it, and the one thing that you might wanna have in order for the dyno day alone is the oil change. I'm sure that couldn't hurt either...

I'm going to make the trip also, going to drop the reg. in the mail this week. What's the ruling on the helmets as far as the rating needed to run the autocross.

I've contacted mike r. and dave d. about the event. Mike really wanted to (especially with his extensive KB suspension upgrades) but can't because of family ties and time restraints. Dave says he's in the air right now, but don't count him out yet.

We've already got more then I thought, so I think we've gonna have a pretty dang nice turnout for an even 400 miles away! Pretty excited for the 411!


Let keep um growin though bucks!

Could someone please elaborate a tad on what these requirements are and how they relate to each other. I saw in the information for the Talladega get together that the helmet requirement was SA 00 or better but that this would be the lsat year that the SA 00 would be acceptable (I think I have this quoted correctly). Is Snell 2000 better than SA 00 and if so will it meet all requirements everywhere that we go? Additionally, I was browsing the Jegs website (we have the store here in Columbus so it's convenient) and I saw SA 2005 ratings as well as SA2000. Is 2005 higher than 2000 and if so i assume that would meet our requirements?

Anyway, a little guidance here would be appreciated.

Thanks!

More than you ever wanted to know about Snell ratings for helmets can be found at http://www.smf.org/

SA Rated Helmets:
Snell "SA" (Sports Application) rated professional helmets are designed for auto racing and provide extreme impact resistance and higher fire protection.

M Rated Helmets:
Snell "M" (Motorcycle) rated helmets are designed for motorcycling and other motorsports. They offer slightly less protection than SA rated helmets.

What are the key differences between SA and M Rated Helmets:

SA standard requires flammability test while the M standard does not.
SA standard has rollbar impact test while M standard does not.
SA standard allows narrower visual field than M standard (Some SA helmets aren't street legal).

How do I know if my helmet meets the necessary Snell specifications?
SCMC rules will allow you to use the current Snell specification, as well as the previous Snell specification. So, for the 2006 season, you could use Snell M00/SA00, or Snell M05/SA05 helmets.
