  1. Past hour
  2. I know headlights are not required for "daytime only" races, but this weekend at barber seems to make the case for why headlights should be a standard safety item. We had a lot of cars running without headlights in POURING rain and you had no idea where they were once they got behind you. Got worse as the day went on and it started to get darker. Some of those cars were unfortunately flat black and it made it even harder to see. We ran our lights all race, both days, and we might even pull the cone crushers motto of always running the light bar. Some of those cars also had no running lights at the rear either...which is the other reason I was glad we had all our lights on.

    Seat Mounts Subframe

    We have our seat/slider mounted to the OEM floor of the car. I would like to make a welded in sub-frame for it so it is more rigid. Anyone have pictures or suggestions of how to for a noob. Thank you, Greg

    2019 races

    MSR and Cresson are awesome. We do need more races In Texas. H2R is fun but it's too small for a long enduro.

    I have 12 5 gallon jugs. They are all full and on the trailer when I get to the track. Because we have had issues, we have yet to go home without gas. Maybe in 2019.

    We had fun out there, despite some tough times over the weekend. I had fun racing whoever was driving for Danger Racing at the end of the day Saturday before we had to pit in for a driver change:

    I was told by a state trooper that it is legal to carry up to 1,000lbs of fuel in storage containers, so not inculding what is in the car.. Gasoline is 6lbs per gallon so if what i was informed is correct you can carry up to 165 gallons. We have 2 55gal drums and 5 gal quick fillers we carry. At road america we needed to make one run the the gas station for fuel.

    Leaves you exactly 37 calendar days to order, receive, and install them prior to tech for the first race of the year! Plenty of time!

    Clarification on Spec Miata Penskes

    Non adjustable 2x Are legal for everyone
  17. So does this make any Non Adjustable Penske or like Shock legal for other marquees as well?
  18. "In a recent dry- and wet-weather session at Carolina Motorsports Park, pro drivers Joel Miller, John Dean II and Randy Pobst tested Penske’s race-engineered shocks head-to-head with offerings from several other brands over four days. Three different versions of the Mazda Miata were tested, and runs were made on Toyo and Hoosier tires. Test drivers didn’t shy away from curbing, running the cars to simulate qualifying and long runs. In all, 72 different combinations of driver, damper and tires were tested. Results show the new Penske shocks to be similar in qualifying lap times compared with shocks currently used by the SM field. But on overall pace, particularly starting on the fifth lap, the Penske product showed brilliance. And on 30-minute to hour-long runs, where the current spec’s lap times slowed by three-plus seconds on the high-wear track surface, the Penskes never fell off to even two seconds compared to qualifying lap times. An in-depth look at the test findings and process can be viewed here." So worth more than a second a lap in an endurance race. Good thing these fit on a Fiero.

    Must be EC if those cars are burning 10/hr.
  22. As a new team/builder.... you're opinion is actually the MOST relevant! good news is that if your car is less sorted then you should just get slotted into a lower class (probably?). Run what you brung type of thing. Lots of existing teams (with recently new teams among them) their race against. Fingers crossed it works.

    The procurement and transport will still work, but the transfer method will need updating for 2019. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w4t8FhYPE8 Funnel? Ah f-it, just dump it in.
  24. AER would never draw many cars from the U.S. It's basically a regional series of BMW clubbie buddies from what I see from the North East. I wouldn't worry about aer making difference in your area.

    Clarification on Spec Miata Penskes

    Anybody doing any performance stuff in a Mazda should be a Mazdaspeed member, it's ridiculously easy to be part of (min. 1 event autox and up in the past year, or intent to build a car) and best value for many stock and performance parts. Can't be mad about a manufacturer that supports about grassroots motorsports.
