  2. I agree with @ktm300. @Rapido you are correct there are full course yellows with a safety car in CCES but unless you are at Watkins Glen they aren't suuuuuuper common, but happen enough. But if they happen enough isn't my issue with the yellow flags in iRacing though. Its that they are buggy....We have received incorrect black flags under FCY for both Daytona and Charlotte. At Daytona race control solve it but at Charlotte it was a 40 second penalty for pitting while the pit lane was closed that expired before we could get ahold of race control. We suck and were just trying to have a good time so it didn't really bother us that much but I know of other teams that lost multiple laps because of bugs with FCYs. Please don't take this as whining. We had a great time and will be back and i know Its gotta be really hard to be race control. I just think life might be easier with less FCYs but I have no experience from your side to know if thats true or not.
  3. LOL you can't call people out like this 😂. It makes us realize that we are old and losing it which just makes it worse. Just let us repeat our stories and smile.
  4. Removing the GT4 made sense but I am interested in the logic behind the Mx5. Wondering if there is a know issue with the software between different generation of vehicles?

  5. @Bill Strong will the shirts be the same comfy ones that @achisek was using in the past. Love those.
  6. I can't even tell when these are installed, but I am blind. So I ask are we going to enforce it this rule? I declare that this mod is free, just like internals of motors.

  8. This was fracking awesome. Had so much fun. I am just tickled with the whole thing. Wish I did this years ago! Thank you so much Tom and crew for hosting this. I’m sure it wasn’t painless
  9. Here in Jamie's Imagery Race League these are all free!
  10. I pulled those number out of my ass.. I do think having an achievable min weight in class A would be important. 2000 is too low, only a handful of people can get there. I picked 2500 because it was a pretty number. Maybe its A=2200, B=2400, C=2600, D=2800. So this would give the following amounts of fuel A= 16.4, B=17.1, C=18.5 D = 20 I only know the weight of 4 cars I have raced. None of which are American Muscle. Miata 1 = 2070, Miata 2 = ~2200, Datsun = 2300, Subaru = 2600 Closest i have been to American Muscle is when I crewed for the Camaro that Bill Riley runs now. If you look in the engine bay of Bill's car you can still see the orange. It had a 22 gallon fuel cell, made 440hp and weight 3020lbs with no driver, fuel, or ballast back then. I bet it's closer to 2800 now?
  11. Took a long bike ride and thought about this. Restricting fuel without also adding min weight rules will leave the cars you mentioned to continue to be uncompetitive and maybe worse. Even with a min weight rule i think some cars would struggle to get to that weight. Maybe this is where classes would come in. Obviously this isn't going to happen because this is too big of a tear up of the rules. But maybe you have a set Fuel Weight Ratio. Something like 140 lbs per gallon and then classes of min weight. A=2500, B=2750, C=3000. Maybe ill make my own series 🤣
  12. Just realizing Snake and Snorman aren't the same person.
  13. Im a slut, I race with everyone and anyone. Those aren't my main squeezes anymore. I actually think the amount of different cars I have raced in the series gives me a unique perception. To be honest most teams aren't winning because of the rule, most have issues outside of the car. This is why you will be a winning team owner no matter what the rule set is. But I do think (know) the complexity and restrictive feel of our rule set scares teams off. I think champcar already alienates many vehicles (not on purpose). It's hard to assign the correct VPI to so many vehicles, come up with far points for to every modification, and then consider things like fuel tank size variation between cars on top of that. Even if you got it right you then have the task of policing the rules you have created. The complexity of the rules continues to increase. I talk to more and more teams leaving to leagues like Lucky Dog because their rules are so easy and clear. I think with more passive and enforceable rules we could make a muli vehicle series more competitive and less complicated. Limiting fueling is step one in my grand plan that will likely never happen. Like I said my ideal rule set would be min weight, max fuel, max tire width, 2 hour stints, 5 min stops. The rest is just safety. 2300 is heavy compared to the Miata
