They can actually be anywhere between 49-61 offset 17"x7" assuming they would fit a stock 06 WRX with 235/40/17 tires.

Also if you are running a class that lets you use R compounds (not ST classes) that is not running the same heat as DS you can borrow my tires on your rims.

I'm no longer an SCCA member.

I have my winter tires mounted on some heavy-ass P-7s that I'm not using. You want to put my tires back on afterwards, you are welcome to them. If you can use 17X7.5, I would have something else that we could talk about.

Can't use the 17x7.5"

What is the offset on the P7's? 52mm?
How heavy are they? 22.4 lbs?
Are you the same person that offered the P7's to saint_foo on nasioc?
I Have no problem putting your tires back on after using them.
Could you bring them to the DCAWD D&B meet tomorrow?

Yeah, just left a message on Eds phone. I am the same guy from NASIOC. The SSRs are 17X7.5. The P-7s are a 52 offset I think and are 22-23lbs each.

I'll drive the Saab and throw in the P-7s and bring them to the meet just in case.

Thanks just wanted to make sure since Ed ended up asking for me also anyway :D

Yeah bring them. I admit I am still looking for lighter weight ones if I can find them but sometimes beggers can't be choosers.

Just back from the Suby Challenge and it was a good time!!! Minus of course the at times driving rain and standing water in the first two heats (sorry Zak and Alan) :( ... I did get to work Alan's heat and tape two of Zak's runs which was fun.

I lucked out and by the time I was running it could almost be described as "partly sunny". Thanks to Katie for hooking me up with Marshall for a ride along and he must be a super nice guy since he said "nice, clean run".
Times...60.sumthin (off course), 55.sumthin, 53.884, 53.885. Way off the pace (fastest time was like 45) but I had a blast (as always) and each time I go I feel a little bit more in control and comfortable. Too bad its not a year round thing :evil: ....

You were 3 sec slower than the best run in heat 1. It is going to be verrry depressing when the results are posted.

I was less than a second off of FTD....until the fourth run group....in a DS car... :D Fastest dry time was a 47.0...wet 48.1

Glad everyone that came out had fun, despite the rain! ...which in itself can make driving quite fun :wink:

Shawn beat my raw times in a DS WRX and I was in an AS STi in the same heat. :( But, oh that STi was fun. :D

I feel really bad for Zak as he was in the first heat - lots o' rain to contend with.

I was in the second heat so I just had to deal with a wet surface but no rain.

Third heat had a semi-dry to completely dry surface.

Fourth heat had the best conditions.

Considering the varying conditions, I'm still happy with my best raw time. I just really want to see my official times. I don't think I hit any cones but I know I came real close a couple times.

FWIW, here are my raw times:
60.2somethingsomething
57.39something
54.591
55.056

...with plenty of sliding and hard breaking. I have really got to smooth out my driving style. Maybe it's time for an Evolution Driving School class ...

At any rate, that was a LOT of fun! Glad to see so many familiar faces - saint_foo, acquacow, Katya4me, Sean, GeneralGrevious, zakrex (and brother), 2WDrift, TurboJon, ButtDyno - and to meet new people - Harry, three guys from Don Beyer, Jackie (parts girl) from Annapolis Subaru, ButtDyno's co-driver (can't remember his name).

I learned the importance of getting a pop-up canopy. Several people there gave good leads for cheap ones: PepBoys for $30-$40 or Dick's for $60. Maybe DCAWD "needs" one for events? 8)

Third heat was never what I would call completely dry.

My times improved a good bit between my last run of the 3rd heat and in the super challenge and I think that was just the drying course.

Ahem, shouldn't you clear that purchase plan with the treasurer first:?: There has got to be a requisition form that needs to be filled out or something. Oh wait, that is at work...

and don't forget the weight packs to keep it in place ...

Looks like Walmart has them too. The 12x12 is 90$ there. We could easily use this for the AutoX and BBQ meets too.... hmmm...

<----75th due to dry 4th heat pavement as well.... I most likely would've had 4 dnf's if I had run when you did Zak (those damn wipers!)

Hmmm ... not feeling quite so bad now. I was 8th out of 15 in my class (STX) and 64th out of 115 in the overall standings. Not bad for a first time I think? 8)

Congrats to Keefe, Shawn, Katie, John (ButtDyno), Ed (saint_foo), Gary (2WDrift), David (GeneralGrievous), Patrick (Katie's brother), Dave (AcquaCow), Mary (Katie's mom), Joel (Zak's brother), and Zak (zaxrex).

I'm looking forward to the next event!
