    Them literary references trip up a lot of folks.

    The more you look, sometimes the more you find that is wrong. I have found rare engine parts for people on this forum that they've looked for with no success for up to a year; took me less than five minutes but I'm used to doing searches like that. That's why I said I could get 95% of the specs in a day (OEM replacement cam specs in a catalog) or in a week (more thorough search of specific applications and sources, i.e. "BMW E30 series Restoration Bible", W72 Trans Am 6.6 engine specs and part numbers, etc.)

    Fish for lunch? Or perhaps you meant bated breathe?

    That was kinda hard. I’m waiting with baited breath to see why this is wrong.

    Brake upgrades (E30)

    Really no need to upgrade the e30 stock brakes. If you feel that they are not adequate, then probably something is wrong with the system, and not that you need to upgrade.
  7. Yeah, the whole thing was bizarre. You can see I came up on these guys into T6 and just followed them through since the RX7 went under the 350 out of T7. When I saw the contact, it appeared to me that the 350 swerved toward the RX7 after they separated. Not sure what was going to happen with these two, I just decided to follow to avoid getting caught up in any untoward attempted acts of retribution, lol. You can see that I just eased up in 4th and short shifted into 5th as I watched the 350 start to veer off track. I had no intention of trying to squeeze through there and have the 350 bounce off the wall and into our car.

    Absolutely, it could snow, or be 60, like it has been in the last 24hrs.

    Brake upgrades (E30)

    The car that won is a E30 running stock brakes. What pads and fluid and rotors are you running? To directly answer your question, yes wilwood is called out for a 5 point swap since they are a series sponsor.

    Brake upgrades (E30)

    Road Atlanta was the first race for our team with the E30. Car was great aside from the brakes. My question is why is wildwood singled in this rule? 4.8.1. The retail price of any NEW replacement wheel, brake caliper, brake rotor (1 or 2 piece), or shock absorber that you put on your ChampCar must be less than twice the cost of a stock replacement wheel, brake caliper, brake rotors, or shock absorber that is available on-line by a nationally recognized auto parts retail chain (i.e. - Napa, AutoZone, O’Reilly, Advanced, etc.). ChampCar reserves the right to go on-line and pull up retail prices. 4.8.2. Wilwood calipers, up to a maximum of 4 pistons, that exceed the 2X Rule will be valued at 5 pts per caliper. Is it due to them being a sponsor? If we upgrade to a different brand that exceeds the 2X rule what happens? What are you other E30 guys running for brake setups? thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Petitions Due by 2/28/19

    I for one think you should concentrate on doing more petitions. Less car, more typing.

    What level of building is too much?

    Any one that I can jump from and not land without injury. (So anything above 5 feet.) Those big ones they call skyscrapers are especially scary to me.

    Reground Camshafts

    Right, and I don’t know the factory tolerance... I just have the specs that the $145 OE replacement camshaft was made with.

    Reground Camshafts

    How do we know your new fresh cam isnt "re-Freshed"?
  18. enginerd

    Reground Camshafts

    I can look it up when I get home. I bought a fresh cam when I rebuilt the engine a year ago and measured/recorded the lift
  19. I’m curious what people might think is too much for our race series. Is changing the layout from front to rear or mid engine too much? Is building tube frame car too much? Should we just worry about safety safety equipment and race? We have no weight limit. We can build custom sub frames for 10 pts. Additional tubes in the cage don’t seem to incur many points. Just only 60% of the body shape has to be intact. Just how creative should we be?

    Anyone have Aero questions?

    Thanks John for the well laid out information.

    @mender What are the OE specs on a M20B25 camshaft?

    Teach me about leak down tests

    I read that as a burnt exhaust valve, rings usually show up as a group issue. Could be though.
  23. Dang...I was too late. Hopefully you make the top 10.
  24. The main thing is that we don't need to make more power for GP1. So there is really no need. The other thing is cams are expensive. The ZHP motor has a very slightly hotter cam from the factory and you can buy the whole motor for ~1/2 the price of an aftermarket cam. Although I didn't look too hard at cams since I figured we would be fine on power. When I started my build, I thought 7k RPM would be fine. After all, the Spec E46 tune gives you 7k redline. I do not have direct experience with the M54 motors. However, I have since heard from what I believe to be reliable sources that these motors don't do well above 6500RPMs. So we are going to try to not push our luck.

    Hmmm, something else we have in common; my dad raced flatheads in the '50s and had his tricks for more rpm ...
