  1. and welcome to the shitshow that we all love to hate... You are correct in what you are saying as it has been a moving target ever since I started back in 2011. But as others have said that some free parts should have been free from the beginning (or at least in the last 4-5 years as the early years were a total cluster F***) is how I view this and I just hope that the ever expanding list of free stuff will end soon. But your point that parts that did cost and are now free allows people to get fast parts is spot on. But as a whole I think it's better for the series to have cars that are more reliable to make the racing more exciting. @troyI 100% agree with you on this point. I would much rather end a race with all of the cars running and the top 10 all on the same lap. But as racers we will always try to get faster and some of that is car improvements and some of that is driver improvements. But it's the nature of the beast we all call racing.
  2. yep- I was just informed of this as well- kind of getting all fancy now
  3. @Bill Strong where's the race results thread? Heard there may have been some drama....
  4. Ok, I’ll add the same conclusion as everyone else. with the Ronald’s Racers car we ran both an m50 and the m20. I don’t have any data for this so I don’t know exact lap times (only bad memory), but the differences between that car and @Chris Hugginscars right now is night and day. Weight wise, the RR car and the aero car are close, the RR car ran Falken 615’s in 205, aero runs 245. But if we look at the best times for the RR car and compare to the aero car (before it had the aero and wider tires) I think the lap times are very similar on VIR full, but with all that the aero car is today the lap times are prolly 8-9 seconds faster. Part of this is the aero, wider tires, suspension, more available fuel due to hydro mats and surge tank (less fuel conservation), and better driving (driver lineups). You also had the MOV stupidity back then, so you didn’t drive all out the entire race.
  5. Agreed- plus would they give you a timer when you enter for a black flag discussion? If not, then you would have to do another lap potentially to get one- or maybe ask for one once you are done with the discussion
  6. Can't the miata add a fuel cell? So let's remember what this thread is about... How does the club want to determine when a car's VPI gets reviewed?
  7. I would like to know why it was reduced $100- what are the reasons behind that VPI reduction?
  8. @snowman- where does your car sit now with regards to projected points for your proposed build?
  9. How? Grant stated that WRL was the plan all along- but just twist stuff to make a point I guess...
  10. damn- you mean she's not guarding the door now- the little beeeaaaacht almost ripped my head off every time I came into the RV
