  1. The Premium Dudes BMW is having some difficulties and is sitting on jack stands in my garage. Fortunately our teammate @red0 has another car and thrashed to get it race ready on 4 days notice. We are piloting that one this weekend. Test day went well, racing tomorrow!

  3. Most teams run a small high output alternator from Bosch. The cooling of them is a limiting factor, but only because they make a few hundred amps. Some teams also have been known to drive them by reversing the field coils in an intelligent way to make them a motor for short durations as a power booster at the end of races or qualifying on restrictor races. Given our power draw (very low on most cars) I would go smaller\lighter than these if I was gonna do aftermarket, more like motorcycle,atv size guts in a alternator housing.

  5. I do not know why you would think we would make you go through the line again for those adjustments as we do these updates all the time for anyone. You may have to wait a short time for us to get clear to take a look and adjust your book.

  6. That's crappy. Local (sorta dodgey) shop here let me tune the car myself on their dyno for $60 an hour. Was pretty happy with that.

  7. Some brake systems need a courtesy pump or residual brake pressure valve like this: https://www.amazon.com/Pirate-Mfg-Residual-Pressure-Valve/dp/B00OG5AV18 to keep the pedal firm. Most OE systems have them built in. You probably won't need to revisit your assumptions until you get a faster car.

  12. Just wanted to add a note to address a few things I have seen come up already. As the Tech Writer, the fact that the tech desk is not updated at this time is 100% on me, and I apologize for that. I will be working on it moving forward to ensure the articles that were migrated to the BCCR are "retired" - no need for this info to be in two places at once. There is some timeframe questions to address however - For example, this article is clearly in the 2021 bccr, however it is not in the 2020 version. I do not think I should retire it until 01Jan2021, as otherwise there is a "gap

  13. I could not agree more and I think a lot of people agree, but some do not. I think a lot of people that do not need reliability items would rather have someone fail and them win then race to the end. I want to see people, myself included, finish a race and battle to the end. A customer who finishes a race will race again. A customer who blows up and does not have funds to race again may not race again, will cancel events and might quit al together. I blew up my engine at PIRC. I do not have the time to get another or the money right now to spend on the car as I used all my race f

  14. I applaud the clarity. Continuous improvement is a process not an event and this is a step in the right direction. The 2020 rules in effect for the championship mucks things up a bit, but I like the direction. A recommendation however is that the vision and mission are added prominently to the start of the BCCR. All rules should be interpreted through the lens of that vision and mission. If there is an interpretation that can go one way or another, the one that best aligns with the vision and mission should be used. I also wished some more of the fix th

  15. I 100% concur. I really like the direction. I do have a question though. There are a number of tech desk ruling that are not in the new rule book. What do we make of them? example: extended ball joints 5 points. I was expecting this to be codified and it wasn't.

  17. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and bread OR cracker crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5x9 inch loaf pan, OR form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Step 3 In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf. Step 4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.
