    Honestly Bill, what *isn't * illegal in your bass-ackwards driving state?

    The ones at the track will be only the standard black ones. We are not planning on printing out a bunch of colors so we won't be left with Chartreuse or Burnt Sienna if no one chooses them. See earlier post in this thread on instructions to order from RVAGFX.

    By the way one of the guys set the head down on the valves after taking it off, I'd assume a valve got bent during assembly. Give it a few thousand RPM for a few minutes with a bent valve stem, valve head fatigues off, and boom. Once the cam is in the head (or even the first rocker is installed), the head should never be placed chambers down anywhere. Those valves do not tolerate any side load, even just supporting the weight of the head is enough to bend them.

    Thanks for the input on the window banner. Attached is a mock-up of what I think looks much better (thanks for the input Hi_Im_Will). I also spoke to Mike and he is ok with folks running whatever color they want after I shared with him that we started running a window banner to differentiate our red E30 back in the day from the other 7 red E30's in the race. So we can print them in whatever color you want, and taller than 5" if desired and even throw in a small logo to the left or right if you absolutely have to rep your oven mitt sponsor or whomever you have convinced to help fund your team. All of that custom work for the low low cost of $10 plus shipping.

    Junction Autosport has planned its schedule for the 2017 ChumpCar season. This year will include plans to take on some of the iconic tracks in the United States. We are seeking drivers for our program as we plan to bring both our cars, Honda Civic hatches, which are both currently EC but we're aiming to get one in A or B. We are a laid back team that focuses on having fun while continuously improving to be an overall contending team. Last season we finished 1st in EC twice with a 4th and 5th overall at the Mosport 11hr and 16hr Chumpionship, respectively. Interested drivers please send an email to ken@junctionautosport.com for more information. www.junctionautosport.com Instagram - www.instagram.com/junctionautosport Twitter - www.twitter.com/Junction_Auto Some older feedback -

    If you look at my dash I added holes so I could use long tie wraps to add to the security of the Velcro, but after the first race and nearly breaking the glass screen on the tablet because I had to use so much force to remove it I quit bothering with the tie wraps. That 2 inch heavy duty Velcro is some strong stuff. My camera has a tether but I am not sure I have ever seen another car that complied with this rule…

    I am thinking about going to the DTC60 from the blues.... The blues just work. However, they are poor at modulation. I will get a set for my first test day of 2017...

    I thought we all decided on the Fiero (also known as "Gods chariot"). You might have missed that meeting. Although, to be honest.... the chariot looks more like a Mustang situation. We may have gotten duped by the Mustang crowd. .

    I should have said Gen III f-body. Gen II f-body seem to be a better platform. Yet have a lower MPV

    If you can weld, this worked great for us. We welded in the channel, used some rubber stripping around the inside edge, drilled a hole for the power cable. and we just used zip ties to keep it locked down. It worked great, with zero vibration. Note, don't just mount it straight. Turn on the tablet and figure out the best angle and build the bracket to hold it in that location.

    I was letting both Miatas play through as you were flying. I tucked behind the Honda, watched as he drove into the grass on the brakes , came back into the side of the truck, spun us both around. We both got black flagged . I should have stayed out one more lap as the Honda/Acura driver told the BF station that it was all his fault, correctly so. So my BF was dropped but I had come in already. He came by later and apologized. Dan somebody, Stand up guy . Then the car owner makes a video and states of how I hit him. My dent is on the rear cab corner. ""Alternative facts". maybe I got trumped.

    wow I am so surprised to see how many people use Hawks old Blue compound over the new DTC line up. I have been selling and using Hawk since 1995- and honestly hate blues with a passion. My contact at Hawk asked me last year why I don't sell any - he states its still their best selling compound.... I guess here is where they are being sold.... Those using blues- have you ever tried DTC-60 as an alternative? Longer lasting, less abrasive on rotors as well as much more easy to modulate....

    Apple, Our Prelude started the first stint on Sunday with no thread left.....none. I drove that first stint and it was diabolical. Babied the car and drove it conserving the fronts. Second stint went out on same and by then it was obvious we needed tires in order to finish. Luckily Kenny the car owner miraculously found someone who was willing to sell their take-offs and he snagged those for the third and fourth stint. We were 2nd in class and fifth overall. Kenny did not anticipate the high wear rate; I don't think many people did. I have considerable FWD experience and I can tell you that negative camber alone won't get rid of the fast wear, especially the fronts. The FWD arrangement has front tire wear as it's weak link. Also very critical is that driving style needs to be adjusted to cope with this weak link. There are other set up changes that will also reduce front tire wear. The tires in the photo actually show a wear pattern that tells me you most likely have too much negative in the thing. What are your spring rates F and R, sway bar size over stock, toe, Ackerman, caster, LSD? Much to talk about. Hit me up separate cover and maybe I can shed some light your way. Nice racing with you!!

    While I generally agree with this thought process, I am NOT doing that with this engine or any engine I put in a chumpcar. Part of doing this swap is so engines are easy to find and cheap to purchase if there is a failure. These engines have a VERY good reputation for not having any major issues (if you use good gaskets). I just can't justify putting $600 to $1K into a 200$ engine. If I was going to do that, I would send off the rotary to have a reputable shop port the crap out of it and rebuild it.

    If you feel obligated, pressure clean the innards without dissembling, blow out with air, rotate and coat with wd40 till sure it aint going to rust, file it under the workbench, get a better specimen that has never seen this kind of abuse,it could do the job but its better to not use without some serious intervention. I would slap the pan back on and leave it dirty till needed to save the water damage of storage. Mender and the internet for the coolant question

    It’s cool how you can actually see where the cut out the 140 and installed an insert in the mold for the 200. With the new rules and the 200TW tire wars going full blast I don’t expect to see many more tires released that are not 200TW rated. I was a bit surprised that the new Toyo R888R was released as a 100TW tire, I expected them to just rerate it as 200 to get in on the action. With the Hoosier-Conti connection should we be surprised if some of their race tires show up with either companies name on them, A 275-35-15 Hoosier with a token tread and a 200TW rating would be scary…
