  1. 3400, w/o driver I think is still the current min, but exactly. I'm not surprised the corner speeds are so close. People don't seem to grasp just how narrow a cup car's tires are (currently) for its weight. As usual, a DoT reference for everything NASCAR, lol. The format and cautions aside, the current cars are just painful to watch going through corners. You don't really see it on the ovals, but its glaring on the road courses. They look like they drive like a 50s pickup. The new car is really going to make the show a lot better, IMO.
  2. We have one on ours. See, you should have come by at CMP, lol. It actually sticks ok, but our mistake was applying it while flat on a bench. Once the lexan was curved/installed, the elements lift in certain places. Still haven't used it and honestly, with any airflow in the car, the Lexan doesn't fog nearly as bad as glass. It rained all day at Charlotte, and the only time the Lexan fogged was during pit stops. YMMV.
  3. I agree. I'm hoping it becomes a permanent fixture on the calendar. Thanks @krispykritter Here is the aftermath of that clip:
  4. I can't find my exact one, but similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H7LFPYX/ref=twister_B06XQV5DDP?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Its just secured with HD velcro to an aluminum plate. So far I've only run the 8 on it, but didn't have any power/recording interruptions all day at Charlotte 14+hrs. The card finally maxed around 9:30pm. I plan to incorporate my old 3 silver as a rear view and run it on the other port.
  5. On my 8 black, I had to remove the gopro battery from the camera to run it continuously off the external pack. The 256gb card ran like 12hours at Charlotte. I will also suggest locking the stabilization if you run on a banked track. 50% of my footage at CMS was looking at the floor board. Not sure there is anything you can do about the clips. Mine also saves in 15-20min blocks.
  6. We use this guy: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rjs-10000201 I have no idea why Simpson prices theirs that high. Its smaller so maybe its just a function of sales volume. I know the special color RJS nets are over 2x the price of the basic black.
  7. Thanks. After several months building it and a relatively successful CMS race, it was a bit of a gut punch. We had all our family coming down and everything so lots of disappoint to go around. I doubt we'll be back with the VG just due to good used parts availability, looking at later model engine/trans swap options now.
  8. Thanks. Yeah I wanted to walk around and say hello to several teams, but only got a to a couple before we were ready to head out. Haven't see the results, hope you guys had a good weekend.
  9. On a hot lap in the last practice session on Friday exiting T8 onto the back straight, I noticed a slight loss of power.....followed immediately by a kaboom. I exited track left and brought the car to a stop, a stream of oil through the grass behind me (luckily none on the track). Our last usable engine and good spare transmission meant our weekend (and season) was over. Only pic of the aftermath so far. This is bottom/rear of the oil pan between the engine and transmission.
  10. Did a compression test so we have something to worry about during the weekend. It wasn't terrible, but not super great either. With no baseline, we'll just have to see if things get any worse. New radio harness checked and installed. Found one of our headset wires was torn/frayed and remembered the rubber ear/strap piece broke at Charlotte. Grabbed the new parts from Racing Radios (nice having them local). They've been great to deal with. Frostfighter defrost wired up since storms are expected on Saturday. Spent about 1.5hrs going through and cleaning out the track tools and reorganizing spares/fluids. Staged everything to load up tonight. TR delivered a set of RS-4s yesterday, dropped off for mounting/balancing this am. Raised the pop-up to air out and do a little cleaning. So happy we get to have family/fan club on site for a race again. Its gonna be a fun weekend.
  11. Yeah, I think you'll need to go to Camden or Lancaster for significant food choices. Both are about the same travel time (~30min).
  12. First, slow clap to GRM. If you have forward suspension arms (like most Nissans), these are a great/cheap/easy option to cool your brakes. https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/articles/building-bargain-brake-ducts-porsche-gt3-parts/ Spent the week/weekend finishing up the new livery. Started off as just a change of colors to match Nissan's white/black/red color scheme, but my [graphic designer] brother took things a step further. Car is mostly back together now. Have a few more things to finish up but she's mostly ready.
  13. If you registered for the test day, it says gates open at 5pm Thursday.
  14. Sanding. More sanding. Sanding. Did I mention sanding? Felt like I got into a fight with Chester Cheetah all weekend. A few things left to finish up and its ready (at least as ready as its going to get) for paint towards the end of the week. Need it back in my garage next weekend to do final prep for CMP.
