  1. awesome, what runs did you sign up for?
  2. I will be out there working the event. Hope to see some of you out there.
  3. Hey all, A friendly reminder that run registration open on 17 Feb at 0900. For those that this is their first time, if there are runs you really want to attend you need to be on the site at 0900. Popular runs fill up within minutes. That being said you must have purchased your registration prior to registering for runs, registration for the event is currently open with 319 people already registered. I recommend getting that knocked out prior to the 17th, so you can be longed in with your coffee ready to go. I have attached a visual timeline of the events, it can sometimes be difficult to see what conflicts with what just reading the times. I also color coat the runs based on pace. I recommend opening in chrome, zoom in, and each event is hyper link to the info page so you can click and get all the detail on each event. Folks that have been can likely weigh in on what were fun runs they have participated in in the past? @MELO-R56 @TheEnglishBeat @Mitzy @Obsessive @GreenCactus @TGGRRR (Ali) @SneakyBaron @SierraRoses @Sanderson Clan @Edge @CHILLIN I will start to find a good time for a club dinner run. We usually do a short drive out to a restaurant on Saturday evening before every heads home on Sunday. MOTD Schedule 2024.pdf
  4. Hey all, I have completed in this series the past few year, and NCC puts on a great event! Everyone is happy to help you learn and improve. Those that attended the MINI autocross school last year, NCC were the ones hosting us. The is a MINI class so you can complete with your fellow MINIacs, but completing is definitely secondary to having fun and learning to push your driving ability and better understand the handling of you MINI. Last year we average 4 MINIs per event, and had as many as 7 for one. Come out for the season or even one event to get in touch with the racing heritage of your MINI. I am happy to answer any question anyone may have, also the other members that have participated I am sure would be happy to share their experiences. @MarkDDrew @Egadd @Widdie @jim0020 @TheMichael Also here are some photos from last year fun at the MINI Autocross School
  5. Quick first check was $1300
  6. Monks BBQ is open at flying Aces now, and they can serve cocktails on the brewery side. should be a fun trip
  7. @Duke happy to hear you were able to get a room. Being able to stay in the village puts you in the middle of everything to include the social events in the evening. I would follow this thread (button at the top) as I will start posting tips, tricks, etc.. for attending the event. We get down there the sunday before everything kicks off and there is a big DCMM banner on the front of our cabin. there is usually a crowd there to check in and figure out everyones' plans.

  10. There are several MINIs in the PYQ pick-a-parts in the area. They also have an app you can scout the cars on before walking the yard. Which rim are you looking for, as there are serval different styles? Honestly you can like pickup a used set off marketplace for what you will pay to find one of the correct rim.
  11. Steve, Thanks for posting them here. I will tag the other classic owners in the club so they see the post. @jim0020 @Obsessive @IndiCooper You may also want to try Capital Mini Register on Facebook must of the classic Mini owners in the area are members of that page
  12. Not sure where in DC you are coming from but getting over to 7, the 50 through WV, and working you way up 42 to 40 into Pittsburgh will add about an 1:30 to the direct route, but give you some nice winding roads with out crazy twisties to completely derail your trip. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Washington,+DC/Pittsburgh,+PA/@40.3929887,-79.1530121,8z/data=!4m24!4m23!1m15!1m1!1s0x89b7c6de5af6e45b:0xc2524522d4885d2a!2m2!1d-77.0368707!2d38.9071923!3m4!1m2!1d-78.6733566!2d39.3127942!3s0x89b5788fdcac4559:0x672917070154d27b!3m4!1m2!1d-79.454744!2d39.5056123!3s0x883555f6191ed4db:0x607a4b3b1c1f4e18!1m5!1m1!1s0x8834f16f48068503:0x8df915a15aa21b34!2m2!1d-79.9958864!2d40.4406248!3e0?entry=ttu Our run season will pick up again in late Feb, hope to see you are a few runs this year.
  13. it is usually one of two things, take a trox bit and make sure all the screws are tight in the tray. If you hear it only when the roof is closed it is usually the the wind diffuser at the front (the thing that pops up) rattling against the glass when closed. Try putting a two or three inch strip of felt tape at the top center edge. see if the solves your problem, dealer will never admit to a poorly design part.
  14. Her is a video, replacing the cap is very easy. You can buy from MINI, or several of the vendors that sponsors our recent event sell them like MINIMania.com or OutMotoring.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hx7FfHOLts
  15. Thank you, I will follow up with them.
