  1. Wouldnt the Penske shock perform better than a KONI yellow or other single adjustable that falls within 2x? The R&D on the Penske shock is going to be much more than the cheaper single adjustable.
  2. So a $200 Penske racing shock that is specifically valved and built for a racing Miata is 0 points but a $100 single adjustable with the adjuster cut off is not.
  3. "Other" cars are well represented already. You should paint it blue.
  4. I am working on the design of the bulkhead I need to build in order to comply with 9.1.2.7.1. I have heard a few good ideas about encasing the cell etc. etc. For my particular car I think this will be less safe than my current setup. Building a vertical bulkhead on the main hoop will allow us to fuel safely while still passing the requirements of the new rule. Building the vertical bulkhead will not allow the driver to see out the rear of the car so I am looking into possibly adding a rear facing camera with a screen where the rear view mirror went. Does anyone have any experience doing this? Are there any good models on the market to do this? What do they use in other forms of Motorsports? 9.1.2.7.1. All fuel cells shall be separated from the driver compartment by a metal bulkhead. The metal canister that makes up the fuel cell does not count as a bulkhead. Thanks, Andrew

    OK, answer understood.

    Yes I could, and that would pass the rule but I would prefer to make my car safer vs less safe. For my car doing the upper part of the bulkhead in lexan and the lower part in sheet metal appears to be the safest way to bulkhead the car. If that is not allowed than I will go another route.

    Great, thanks.

    Having the top of the bulkhead Lexan and the bottom aluminum would be all good. I will work with tech and see if that will be acceptable.

    We could do that, but I like all the fittings to be in plain site and with easy access to work on. Someone caught one being leaky at Gingerman before race start on Saturday and tightened it up. I also use the clear vent line as a sight-glass for the aluminum fill tube so I can slow down before the fuel sprays out of the fill port. Bulkheading the car in half at the main hoop would provide no downside if the top was Lexan.

    If the top half could be Lexan it would be perfect.

    Very cool! The plan is that I will be driving with the Premium Dudes team #32 orange E30. I would love to see the K swap and meet you guys.

    You might need to upgrade the brakes again!
  15. Yea, we were able to do that in 2017.
  16. Sounds like me in 12 at RD ATL. I know I don't "need" to lift, but I still do.
  17. Do some cars have to lift in Nascar 3 then? I have only run the infield kart track back in the 90s at Charlotte, never the car course.

    Are you running Road America in the spring?
  19. Are these the turn numbers you guys are referencing?
  20. I have never become comfortable with 12.........

    Kill switches?

    Using a relay style disconnect right at the battery terminal is definitely a good practice. Having protection from a short by using a fuse or circuit breaker is also a very good practice. Halo seats are something that I started using as a best practice too. I can bring up the idea of having a list of some safety best practices listed to help teams know what they can do to go beyond the minimum safety requirements listed in the BCR. Do you think that would be helpful?
