  1. You can unbolt them and put them in the trailer this weekend.
  2. I was at the new KMiata shop in Wauconda IL a few days ago (It's 15 minutes from my house). I got a chance to look at a car with the new swap listed in the first post, and it is beautifully done. The engineering and fabrication on all these kits is amazing. I believe they are still looking at releasing a champcar compliant budget kit for 2020 rules too.
  3. I oval raced a showroom stock Saab with 0 camber at like 3200+ lbs last year. I pushed the tread off the tire and made it look like a recap........
  4. Yep. Especially a heavy FWD with understeer. Kiss those tires goodbye.
  5. Some serious wrecks have happened due to “ICE MODE”. I have been “ICED” during my first race with ABS, at WGI no less.
  6. You would need an m3 wide body chassis to make them fit.
  7. Can you run them with NA hats, or do you have to swap suspension components to make them work?
  8. I ran a 24 hour stock car race last year at Baer Field which iirc is a 3/8 mile oval. The track was packed with over 100 cars and many of us ran 6+ hour stints. I could run an 8 hour stint in an e30 with a race seat but with a stock seat this race was brutal. In WRL we would fill and keep our drivers in for 2 or 3 stints. The champcar 2 hour stint max and no back to back stint rules are great IMO.
  9. Or drop a 5.0 into that bimmer to suck up all the fuel!
  10. The way the rules are, does it realistically matter? How much is all new ABS equipment for an imported sports car at dealer price? $2500??? You would then have $5000 to spend on a racing ABS system?
  11. What are you talking about??!! I had less contact in the first few years, the racing was great, and the price was super low.
  12. Yep, this works well. https://90racing.com/products/longacre-water-pressure-sender-52-43241?_pos=1&_sid=87704e037&_ss=r
  13. Have you contacted your local fire department? Our fire department does it for $0 upfront.
  14. Premium Dudes / Holy Rollers still own it. We don't have any vehicle for picking up engines, tires, bringing a second car (I had to borrow a truck to tow the Premium Dudes car as well as a Honda to Indy), plus I worry about the bus for long tows such as going to California.
  15. Before 2010, I had never really worked on a car. I guess things have changed a little.
  16. I found the scratch resistant stuff the easiest way. If you are scratched up currently, I would use this 3 stage scratch remover designed for polycarbonate windshields. https://90racing.com/products/allstar-novus-plastic-polish-3-78203?_pos=2&_sid=1fcdba281&_ss=r
  17. Willing to trade for ZC and Honda parts +turbos+ Cash?
  18. I didn't mean Indy next year, I meant for special events like Indy was this year. I think you are right though, 170 people trying to enter next year is unlikely.
  19. It's first come first serve, and should remain that way. You can't have EC teams getting bumped by non EC teams, that's not a good way of running things. For races like indy with 100% likelyhood of selling out, you could just say no EC cars but that is pretty rare.
  20. I'm sure @National Tech will tech the brakes on whatever car you are referring to using all the applicable written rules: 4.7.7. Wheels, brake calipers, brake rotors / drums and nonadjustable shock absorbers are open, PROVIDED they meet the “2X Rule.” 4.8.3. Teams must have receipts and bring them to tech to document their parts cost less than 2X the stock replacement parts. etc.
  21. That's odd, lots of cars ran hoosiers in the midwest in the 2011 era.
