  1. For every car that loses by one lap there is a car that wins by one lap, just sayin'
  2. Is there a rule that dictates how high your bumper is off the ground?
  3. but I assume you don't use the JZ->W58 bellhousing, that's the hard to find part ($$$)
  4. Thanks, I didn't mean to imply that It wasn't being done correctly, just pointing out that there are ways to check and encouraging those in doubt to do so and share.
  5. I think it's still worth bringing this to light, especially if CC isn't crediting the manually scored laps correctly. Problems with timing equipment are bound to happen (we did a race at Brainerd many years ago and the pit loop wasn't working and they didn't even attempt to add those laps), but we need a backup method, accurate T+S is pretty fundamental to a competitive race series. I agree that the results should never be reconsidered once they are made official, but someday someone won't be as understanding as you and get seriously pissed about this type of issue. That said, I'm not familiar with AIM or Podium, but if you can get the raw GPS data the number of laps can be counted based on any S/F line after the fact, it's essentially just a calculation after all, not an actual measurement.
  6. Don't you run in-car data/video that you could compare to speedhive?
  7. There's no good reason not to run T+S on the practice day to help find those issues, paying customers should demand it IMO.
  8. I'm not a T+S expert, but I know that when a lap gets triggered that is below some threshold it is automatically deleted because it is implausible. So, what happens to that time, if it doesn't get added to the adjacent laps then it could be "lost". I.e. a team has a 2:00 in lap, pits near the loop and the transponder triggers a short 1:00 " lap" which gets deleted, then they leave the pits 4:00 later and complete a 2:00 out lap before they cords the line again, this might be showing up as a 2:00 followed by a 6:00 and we might think of they left the pits too soon? Just a theory, you could possibly audit the results to compare the sum of the individual lap times compared to the total time to see if any of this "lost time" shows up that way.
  9. I don't see how anything but wishful thinking would lead you to think this was a per-race payout, but it definitely could be clearer.
  10. Not running out of brakes on your maiden trip to RA is a solid indication of a team that knows what they are doing, especially in a car that fast, many have struggled with that challenge in the past.
  11. Since 4.7.8 refers to "rear-end-ratios", does that mean you can use any ratio from your model-generation, or only the actual physical gears? Perhaps your model-generation had more than one ring gear diameter and a couple different ratios for each size, but they are all unique combinations, for a made up example lets say Gen1 Tunaslappers had the following options: 8" ring gear 3.5:1 ratio 8" ring gear 3.9:1 ratio 9" ring gear 3.7:1 ratio 9" ring gear 4.1:1 ratio Is it legal to run a 3.9:1 ratio in a 9" housing? The gears would have to be custom made or come from a different model since you obviously can't bolt up an 8" gear in a 9" housing, but you are running a ratio that was available in the model-generation, just not a factory combination.
  12. The Championship Standings had some car make/model data in it, but it"s not all the results, only top two finishes for each team and total number of races.
  13. A man comes home from a long day at work, plops down on the couch in front of the television and turns on the game. Without hesitation he tells his wife, “Get me a beer before it starts.” The wife sighs and gets him a beer. Fifteen minutes later he says, “Get me another beer before it starts.” She looks cross, but fetches another beer and slams it down next to him. He quickly finishes that beer and a few minutes later says, “Quick, get me another beer, it’s going to start any minute.” The wife is furious. She yells at him “Is that all you’re going to do tonight? Drink beer and sit in front of that TV? You’re nothing but a lazy, drunken, fat slob, and furthermore …” The man sighs and says, “It started …”
