  1. In all the cars I've installed it in, where you want to plant your foot to get in or out is usually far enough away from where your feet reside while on the pedals that it isn't an issue. You really only need the tape on a spot about 1' square. Just get in an out a few times while paying attention to where your foot ends up, you'll see. The area at the pedals remains with simple paint (which gets worn shiny after one weekend). The grip tape so you don't slip on your way in/out is one of those simple and cheap items that just make the car "better". Hard to quantify, but certain

  3. I just cut a big hole in my floor so I can Flintstone it coming out of the corners. It's kinda like KERS and I don't have to worry about grip tape, win-win.

  4. I enjoy working on cars too much to deprive myself of the joys of building my own car. I know it isn't always the financially efficient way to do it, but there's a sense of accomplishment that comes with doing it yourself.

  7. Naw, probably the same like Indy. Everybody got their fill the first year. Those that didn't, raced it the next year. Then, it is probably a combination of all of your points above. Rotating yearly between Indy and cota should keep both races well attended in the future.

  9. I loved it too. But the work was so much last year that i briefly considered quitting racing altogether. But i think it's more a problem of maintaining the car and all the long tows. I spent 160 hours last year towing to and from four tracks. I will drive for others and see if the joy comes back.

  15. 91 octane? I don't need it for the pit-bike or a lawn mower and the altitude is not that high in any part of Georgia. How about some 96 or higher with no oxygenators. And no I don't want to get in a discussion about why cars in Champcar need or want to use anything but what you can buy at the corner gas station.

  17. Buttonwillow COTA INDY Thunderhill Sonoma All good tracks, fun to race. The west coast tracks makes sense as much as I hate it but the numbers just didn't come around at this time. COTA is just stupid expensive, they just ask too much for the track although it's one of the nicest facilities. Indy I assume is the same thing but not aware of their cost but it must be a lot.

  19. My mind was mostly made up before Barber. Barber was the cement in the decision. But we had a Barber-like race at Indy too, and COTA wasn't much better. I did not take the track at Barber, got maybe 40 minutes at Indy and 30 at COTA. I've got a few races coming up, we will see how it goes. Luckily I have a lot of hobbies and want to add more so racing isn't the only thing. For me, anyway.

  20. Check their prices. I think I filled up one can there a few years back, then realized that it was something like $9.99/gallon. I understand a premium for convenience (no pun intended) but sheesh.

  22. I recall there was a big discussion about this years ago and reading the rules as posted by Enginerd (Huggy)I see it as limiting the number of door bars. Meanwhile the rules also say you can run as many bars as you want between the A and B posts/in the driver's compartment. Obviously with the variety of cars some have much more vertical area from the sill to the window than others so this seems problematic. On a Cutlass I want more than two door bars beyond the allowed sill bar while a Miata or Vette won't have room for more. Separation between the bars is needed for if they need t
