Do you hate the tech lines at the first autocross of the year? So do we! Fortunately, Parkland College has offered their facilities at the Applied Technology Center for a day of CCSCC annual technical inspections!
Additionally, Parkland College is opening up its shop to our members and friends on Saturday, March 5 and Saturday, April 2. Our thanks to Jonathan Ross and Adam Karch and their staff who have agreed to open the facility from 8 AM to 4:30 PM on both days.
In order to advantage of this opportunity you need to register on AxWare ORM site for either or both of these two days. There will be charge of $25 for CCSCC members and $35 for non members for either day and if you register for both, the second day will be only $10. The proceeds from the work days will be donated to the Parkland Motorsports club or the Parkland scholarship fund.
Each day will start with a mandatory safety and orientation class which will last 45 to 60 minutes. After completing the course you will need to sign a waiver.Then all the equipment will be available for your use. This includes 11 lifts, 2 alignment racks, one rack for corner weighting (scales), tire mounting and balancing equipment and a Mustang MD1100E chassis dyno (2 wheel). The dyno will be available for 1 hour sessions by appointment (long enough for 2 to 3 pulls to get horsepower and torque numbers but not for tuning). You can schedule the dyno session after you have registered and paid for the day (more information on this to follow). For scheduling of Dyno session, lifts, alignments and scales, email Jon Ross at JRoss@parkland.edu. Parkland also has available a large assortment of special tools and diagnostic equipment which will be available for our use. Be sure and bring your torque wrench and check it’s calibration. If you have any questions concerning the equipment please email Jon Ross.
