    Just wondered if club member use of the track on days other than Thurs/Saturday is allowed (assuming King’s isn’t using it). I have a ton of business travel the next month where my testing is going to be hampered by the Thurs/Sat schedule. I don’t want to put anyone’s nose out of joint by showing up when not expected if that’s not expected!!

    Thanks!!

    Erick, ASCC built the track and it is our track not Kings. As a member, when Kings is open (10-7 M-F, 10-6 Sa, Su) you can use it for free.  In years past they charged members ($7) for using the track on other than Thurs or Sat and we even paid double on Sats ($5 to the club for each race and $5 access to Kings). They stopped that about 2-3 years ago : )

    When paying renters use the track (as when practicing after a Saturday race or on Thurs) we a) help them pick out a rent car and Parma controller, b) inspect any personal cars they have for Silicone or sponge tires, c) reset the practice software, d) turn power down to 9 or 10v, e) give them advice on where to brake.  We let them get their 30-minutes in and then we get back to our settings and practice.

    Likewise, as a member you have access to: — the truers, pinion tool, and power supplies, — soldering iron and Dremel,  — stereo, –Defalco controllers.
