  1. Here's the guy from Hoosier that was on the webinar. I sent him an email this morning requesting that size; it probably wouldn't hurt if he heard it from more people. Jeff Speer Circuit Racing Product Manager jaspeer@HoosierTire.com

  3. while waiting for Team Dad to rebuild our head, we got the ball joints and front sway bar end links replaced. Last race we had an issue with ball joints so we got new ones installed proactively. Progress is happening little by little each week

  4. Drove car to work, totally forgot about the wipers breaking as we lined up @ the last race. This is why the car has tags. New rotors/pads going on front, but what the heck, no symptoms, RF caliper dripping from the case half? Tightened the bolts a little and it stopped, not bad, these are 3ish yr old china copies from rock auto. Over the years we have crossed/lost a wheel stud here and there being complacent/busy/tired after post race inspection, Daytona was double special when co-owner Mike took the jack before realizing I had placed the LF wheel on but not the nuts (in my hand talking to someone away from the car) I was last off pit road and had to push my luck with the impact gun. Messing with a cool random PIAA yellow tint fog in the spares box. Not great but in a pinch it will do if we loose a light @ the track. Picking up dinner and breakfast while bedding new pads Lunch Now waiting for generic replacement rear rotors and hoping UPS finds our MIA ebay diff cooler pump.

  5. This is what we use for a manual trans fluid cooler - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/til-40-525?seid=srese1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwnueFBhChARIsAPu3YkQe0OPwFEP2SY5tnji2hcwWTAR5c3_e_KrFzH2ubgEM1EjxXSyykfgaAqytEALw_wcB Much quieter than OP. Used a PWM controller to dial in flow rate for dwell time in cooler. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071W4C6G1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Finding the correct fluid level for the new system is a bit of a trick too depending on your fluid loop and where you dump fluid back in.

  6. Great questions! In general, I think you have it right. I would save the 100pts for the shocks though. Just go With som3thing sporty "off the shelf". I would also go with a pair or all 4 adjustable height aprings for 40 pts instead of spending half that on whatever springs. Aero matters as well...

  10. It can draw/prime a couple of feet. Last few times we changed the fluid it was with the pump inlet hose stuck in a bottle held a foot below. Still waiting for our pump, UPS misplaced it somewhere in Louisiana

  11. According to the audio: A bit faster than RS4, but only lasts 10 hours. NOT as fast as RE71 or A052 Still, if they were targeting Champcar, they missed big not choosing a 245/40/15 tire size. Plenty of teams here using those on 9 and 10" wheels for many different makes/models.

  12. +1 for all the team members out there (on all the teams), that don't drive, get up early, stay up late, (Champ staff too), So that everyone can have a good time, and go fast.

  13. We also had one in our blue Volvo and thought it worked well. Only once did I have a contradiction, but that was the fault of the turn 10 flagger holding out the double yellow while my crew chief and flagtronics were green. We shared a garage with the Flagtronics team and they were telling us some of the other potential features. I hope they can follow through on them, because if they do, the $150 price point will be "ChumpChange" for the things it can do.

  14. Actually, we're going to try something new this year. Bill will be wearing the special awards, things like watches, rings, wallets, etc. The first person to knock him down and take them, gets to keep them. If he fights back, it's all just part of the fun! Enjoy! Dana
