  6. We use the broom, it's already got a handle/pole and is always in the pits. I like efficiency, why bring another thing? The more purposes something serves the better.

  7. Yes, we will be there in AER / EC form for now. We have a new class D "big fox body" car in the works. But that is pretty far down the road still. Looking forward to running with champcar and all our old racing friends again!!!!

  10. I suggest not attaching it to the easy up Some times depending on your neighbors and what they are doing right now, you may need to stop the car earlier or later.

  12. I have broken sbc in every imaginable way while racing lemons and champcar. Never had this failure. I'm not against it, but I would put it in the logbook and have tech see it to verify.

  13. Some joint locations in some cars need the added flex for the suspension to move (need non axial deflection). Some swaybar link bushings come to mind, and my neon rearward front lower control arm bushing... If the joint only requires rotation along the bolt axis, sure delrin is pretty good.

  14. To recap the info provided and underscore the best advice: Five minute minimum if you take fuel. No minimum if you come in to pull a fender off a tire or change an exhausted driver. When you stop at the pit out stop sign, you just say “no fuel” and they release you without waiting for the timer to expire. All that being said, a wise team doing their first race just ignores all of that and takes whatever time is required. Check the oil. Look at the tires to see if they are wearing funny. Make sure the lugs are torqued. On certain cars, check the wheel bearing tightness. Look for fluids dripping under the car. Etc. etc. So many new teams blow their cars up in the first race because they think they are racing and rush the stops. The first race is to learn where your car needs attention (I.e. it burns a lot of oil, or it keeps backing out the nut on the bearings), not to really race. It is a high intensity test day that happens to occur while other people are racing. If you adopt that philosophy, you will almost assuredly finish much higher than if you try to be in the race. You will run in lower positions in the first half of the race, but will run much longer in the race and that is the key to endurance racing. And you will be a lot happier too. Too many first time teams blow up, break, or wreck before all of the drivers get a stint because they are trying too hard. Make your sole objective “to still be running at the checker” and you will have a much better chance of the whole team having some fun. Once you have finished a race, THEN start worrying about your pit times. Welcome to Champ!

  15. Surprised this hasn't been sold yet. All these people wanting to drive Indy. This is a well run team. I can vouche for them.

  16. Our WRL pit stops were driver, 1 tire, and fuel in 38 seconds. It was expensive, difficult, and required a large crew. Open pitting isn't really a good thing for entry level budget racing IMO.
