  1. @Bill Strong you have room in your Opel?
  2. I am looking for a second seat at Willow Springs (I am also racing with Uncommon Friends). I am a veteran champcar racer and serial renter. I have raced for 19 different teams at 20 different tracks in champcar. I have raced in cars varying from 70hp vw rabbits to championship contending fully prepped machines. If you want to see how fast your car really is I am your man, if you want me to baby it in 5th gear while watching your trans temps like a hawk I can do that, or you want me to keep your car on the track in mixed conditions I can do so too. I am also an engineer by trade and can provide consulting on many areas from engine calibration (which I did for GM/Ford/Saleen), vehicle dynamics (I did chassis controls for Ford/Tesla), or just general racing (I owned my own team, have created lap sims for multiple teams, used driver in the loop setups from GWR, and have done driver coaching for GM). I know the rule book pretty well and have submitted multiple rule changes over the years (some that even happened). I come with my renters kits (includes spring rubbers, toe plates, tire temp probes, temp stickers, radios, video streaming, i've even been known to throw a race capture telemetry in cars I rent *unfortunately not available for willows*). I can also just shut up and drive if requested. I have passed limit handling evaluations and training from Ford, General Motors, and TRC. I dabble in iRacing where I hold a B license. Had my full comp SCCA license but let it expire long ago. You can find multiple videos, reference's, and additional information about me at my website https://jameswolak.wordpress.com/teams-and-cars-i-have-raced-with/
  3. I wish the bigger Champcar realized that this is a cool little thing we like. Seems like it could be a great plug for some affordable watch company.
  4. Naw. Thats on you. Its up to you to manage the energy efficently. The carb'ed datsun I race gets fuel economy compairable to the fuel injection ones I race. Datsun might be better because the owner actually knows how to tune it, until 90% of the fuel injection cars I race.
  5. Bill don't know poop. He just knows where stickers go
  6. Lobbying, bull cookies, and forum troll mafia consulting. I used some bull cookies napkin math and laptimes with me driving a NA and NB to help get the NB Miata VPI down. Chisek openely admitted to making older american muscle v8's have a lower VPI just to get more in the series.
  7. Which would make the field like 50% non paying board members I have for the last 4 years and they all look at the rule book and realize that their not competitive cars are going to start multiple laps down due the the modifications they made. Local teams even harass me about my tri annual "conversion therapy".
  8. Warning going to troll you a bit: Interesting that Charlotte is the only East coast race Lucky has and that Champcars numbers are low their. Don't jump to react to that I dont believe thats the real reason. I just want Champcar to work in the west again and I think for that to happen a major change need to happen. As a Native Michiganer I know how much you all hate hearing it but most trends start out here. Lemon's and Lucky are doing just fine out here. I am scared this is a warning sign for the whole series. I think we are trending towards SCCA where the rules so restrictive that it impacts the series car count (another series that doesn't do well in the west coast and is started to hurt in the east) Because the West Coast races have been failing to get headcount for years. This race is a perfect example. So we are trying to figure out why LD can get 60 more cars at a race then Champ. This isn't a "this series is so much better" this is a "How do I get cars back in the west coast". Don't worry my racing religon is the same as your still. I just have to go to a new church because my old one has no members. Who cares how much someones build is. This is not a price regulated series and hasn't been for years. Personally I love passing rich teams in @Mopar 4 Life's PT Cruiser and Boxers in Das Idiots Jetta. Plus Champcar has high dollar teams to and we love them. Just because your rich doesn't mean you can't enjoy racing with us. And honestly a lot of the high dollar teams are generious as hell. I had them give a rollers chassis to a team that totaled their car, let us use their trailer with a lift to swap a trans in, offer seats in their car to people who didnt get to drive because their car broke, given away countless parts, sponser the series when it doesn't really benifit them, etc.
