  1. We use a RAM mount and a Yi 4k Camera. You will need to provide a hotspot in the car for it though. Here is the camera: https://www.amazon.com/YI-Action-Sports-Camera-Control/dp/B01FU6KDEG/ref=asc_df_B01FU6KDEG/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198056450525&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17966390334521248548&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9016288&hvtargid=aud-801381245258:pla-383971697996&psc=1 Here is our livestream from Sebring on Sunday:
  2. So something like this? https://www.ebay.com/i/233276024999?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=233276024999&targetid=596465992708&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9015075&poi=&campaignid=6470636544&mkgroupid=83197474208&rlsatarget=aud-298628318826:pla-596465992708&abcId=1140476&merchantid=111921908&gclid=Cj0KCQiAgebwBRDnARIsAE3eZjQYXAyC4sa7wSQtVcRl43UXPnWsmy4iBQDycXzrD3O3YmKRbHV1hNcaAiQaEALw_wcB What do they weigh?
  3. I am bringing this back up due to Sebring and our car. We have the frost fighter and it wasn't enough. I'm getting a new windshield and want to use something that's going to work everytime. Any suggestions other than what's been recommended here?
  4. The whole point of the Tech Desk is to not have any emails, text messages, or phone call agreements. If you have an email then you need to resubmit it through the Tech Desk. We have a team working these and we are trying to get everything out there in the Knowledge Base, in ONE spot where it can be referenced. If it's not been in the Tech Desk where Tech, CEO, BOD and TAC can view, then nothing has been approved.
  5. I will no longr be attending. We thought the Annual BOD meeting would be there but Mike needs to he at Mosport.
  6. So the way I look at this is what am I offering to renters? 1) A well prepped car that was done in my garage and not having issues overlying at the track. My whole goal is to have everything complete and ready to go when its loaded in the trailer. Not having to work on things at the track is the big bonus. 2) A competitive car that can battle in the top 10 to top 5 for each event. 3) I want my drivers to focus on driving, not having to worry about fueling the car or other items during a pit stop. I have one crew guy that comes with me. 4) Offering live video, AiM data and SmartyCam video for review. Renters can access the info we capture during the race. Also their family and friends at home can tune in to watch them race. 5) Have renters that are faster than you and can give you the best feedback. That's how I have built my car over the past couple of years. 6) Do the renters believe is worth renting from you for what you offer? This I'd a question the renter needs to answer. 7) Also I take snack orders before the race and also bring drinks the drivers like. I also start a group chat months before the race to keep renters informed with what is going. Make sure you book a room or AIRBNB that gives the renter the option for lodging. I do not factor lodging into my rental price. I want my renters to feel like they are a part and involved with the team from prep updates to wearing team shirts. A lot of the small items go a long way.
  7. How much for the 8-10 day set? Feel free to text me two six 0 four four 5 eight seven four 2
  8. We have a board meeting on Wednesday. I can bring this up for clarification. My thought is the rotor is 2x and to make a 2 piece rotor work with your car (other parts and not direct bolt on) then we have to have some points in there as well to make it work.
  9. Crank Yankers Racing Summary We started heading down to Sebring this year on Christmas night. Left my house around 8:30 pm and arrived at the Seven Hotel at 6 pm on Thursday night. 22 straight hours of driving plus some time to fill our fuel cans/drums and get some beer for the weekend. Spent Thursday night with most of the team and we went out to Sunset Grille. Woke up Friday morning at about 4 am and just started throwing up. Did not over indulge so it was a little weird this happened. I was not sure if it was from not sleeping for 39 hours plus the beer and the shrimp pasta or what. Got into the track on Friday and unloaded everything. Didn't want to take any practice time in the morning and just let Rob get in the car and try it out. Found out that the rear was not settled and we looked at the rear axles and saw the wheel bearings and so much slop; turns out that.....someone forgot to tighten the rear axle nuts. We tightened the axle nuts and went back out for a session and no issues. Were able to get everyone in for the test day and ready for the next day. Saturday we knew it was going to rain, but could have some dry spells. Started out on the 245 Hankooks and we were in the top 10 after a mess of a first stint. There were so many yellows and wrecked cars. After the first stint, I told myself this was a drive and survive race. 2nd stint we had a good strategy and my drive spun out on the opening lap. For the 3rd stint the same thing happened; first lap out the driver spins. Just all around nasty conditions. We had no chance at winning, so I made the call to put on the 205 RE71Rs for my stint to see if it would change our rain driving at all. We were so much slower than everyone else during the day, but we were still battling in and out of the top 10. During the last stint, I think I had a total of one or two green flag laps. With 30 mins left, we broke an axle in T3 and I limped it to T7 to get out of the way of other teams. Thank you for not hitting me during those scary 4 turns! Sunday we were starting out towards the front half of the field. I was out first and I knew that it was going to be damp to drying conditions. We stuck the 245 Hankooks on and I went out for a good fun stint. There were some spins in front of me and it was good to see that we could handle our own in the damp conditions. I ended up getting us into the top 10 and setting the fast lap of the day on the 21st lap. We caught a yellow and we made a pit stop. Rob got in the car and put down an awesome stint. Pit window opened and we caught another yellow. At this point we noticed we were anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds off of the pace of the front runners so we thought we needed strategy in our favor. In the 3rd stint we were battling with the top 5 which was good to see although we had our fast lap in the 20s versus everyone else. We knew the car would be close on 2 hours of fuel at Sebring, but we still needed to try and play strategy. The yellow comes out and we knew we had to pit, but we had to do an extra lap to make sure we would hit the window. Last driver gets in and he loves to burn fuel. With 15 mins left we are in the top 10 and looking for a top 7 finish at Sebring when the driver comes in and says it's sputtering around 1 and he thinks it's almost out of fuel. We decided to park versus getting towed in for the finish. We still ended up 10th and enjoyed some beers afterwards. Enjoyed pitting with @Huggy @Burningham @Hurljohn Enjoy having @wvumtnbkr and @hornerevan as drivers with @bbaker480 as crew I appreciated meeting new people and hanging out with old ones. Enjoyed all of the volunteers and staff who put this event on. See you all at NCM!
