    It is the responsibility of each participant to complete a "self tech".


    Removal of all loose contents in passenger compartment (including floor mats) and trunk.
    Brake pedal feels stiff
    Seat belts in good condition
    Nothing loose anywhere in the vehicle

    Throttle return spring (safe and positive)
    Battery tie down secure
    Brake fluid level above the minimum level
    No fluid leaks of any kind
    Fuel cap (and all fluid caps) tightly secured
    Spare tire (and assoc. tools) removed or double checked to be secure.

    Wheels and tires

    Tires in good condition (e.g. No steel belts or cords showing, excessive wear) Expect to switch tires every couple of hours or as the track tends to wear tires unevenly0 (outside wear > inside wear)

    At least 6 tires are required (2 spares). 8 Tires (4 spares) or more are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (this track will eat up tires). Drivers must have enough tread to get home.

    Tire pressure checked (min. 25psi. for street tires, if in doubt ask). Air pressure is availible on the premises.

    Wheel bearings in good condition, no excessive play

    Lug nuts torqued to spec
    -in addition the JohnAMS law applies:
    6. Those of you running spacers:
    A. Bolt-on spacers: Make sure they are properly torqued. Double check if you have to.
    B. Plate spacers: You'd better have extended studs. If you are running plate spacers, remove a lug nut so staff can check for an ample amount of thread contact. If you have plate spacers front and rear, remove a lug front and rear. I will have a torque wrench on hand in these cases. If there isn't enough thread, the spacer will be removed. If the wheel doesn't fit without it.... iunno, borrow some wheels.
    Car does not "pull" to one side

    Helmet, Misc.
    D.O.T. rated helmet (Snell SA or M80 for SCCA Competition) note: the club has no "loaner helmets".

    While it is your responbility to adhere to all of the tech guidelines, if any staff member notices a problem (leaking, breaking, smoking, etc.) they will direct you back to the paddocks IMMEDIATELY and you will not be allowed back on the track until it is fixed.
