Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

                    It probably would be useful to alleviate driver fatigue. The driver sessions will be pretty grueling

                              ANCIENT THREAD: RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE
                              ================================================== =========

                              Hey all, I'm back! I'm sure nobody remembers me but I'll pretend you do
                              Here's the quick synopsis of what happened after the last race way back in 2010:

                              My friend and I stopped racing with the guys who owned the car and went off to build our own car. I ended up building and tracking a BMW E30 track car for a while, and my CB7 teammates kept racing the Accord for a few years, I think they did 5 or 6 races.

                              The car got smashed up pretty good and eventually they stopped racing it and ran out of room to store the thing. They called me and asked if I wanted to buy it for $1500 last summer. I said ok and drove down to pick it up.

                              It hadn't been started in over a year, but I brought a battery, we dumped so gas in the tank and it started up! The idle was bouncing from 3000 rpm to 600 and back again but it ran.
                              We put it on the trailer and brought it home and now I'm going to fix it up and race again!

                              The plan is to hit up a track day at Streets of Willow Springs on Feb 7th to shake the car down, and then race it at Buttonwillow 24 Hours of Lemons in June:
                              The main things I need to do are to update the roll cage for the new safety rules, replace all the worn out suspension components, and fix the smashed up body.

                              I'll keep the thread updated with progress.

                              So far in the past 2 weeks I've:
                              • New battery Optima red top
                              • Coolant bypassed throttle body and IACV
                              • Removed FITV valve, made block off plate <- fixed idle surge
                              • Removed ABV air boost valve, made block off plate
                              • Flushed cooling system with water and radiator flush.. straight water has been sitting in the cooling system for years... not good.
                              • oil + filter change 15w50 Mobil 1
                              • rebuilt front calipers R+L
                              • new rear wheel cylinders R+L
                              • New brake shoes - some kind of racing compound that came with the car
                              • Bled brakes - Castrol GTLMA
                              • Adjusted rear brakes so drums just drag at 1 click
                              • New left rear hub+wheel bearing
                              • New left rear drum
                              • rear sway bushings 14mm poly $13 from ebay woot
                              • L+R rear upper control arms + ball joints
                              • L+R Outer tie rod ends
                              • Front L+R Upper ball joints -1 - +1 camber adjustable-- set to max caster now, will change when I get alignment
                              • Removed extraneous exhaust heat shielding
                              • Gas filler neck, removed unleaded restrictor
                              • Fixed missing front right swaybar end link bushing
                              • Lightened balance belt pulley

                              Question: I need to get it aligned, what's a good start for a race alignment? I'm thinking FRONT 2.5 degrees camber, 0 toe, max caster (even across both sides) - REAR 2 degrees camber 0 toe
