    Teach me about leak down tests

    Being a leakdown thread, I would love to dive a little deeper Mender, being this test takes place @ 0rpm, what are we missing @ different places of the bore or @ redline or with minor valve leakage at 0rpm vs @ speed?

    Crankcase ventilation (the good kind)

    Plus ring blowby, could be minimal if all is healthy.

    +1 No leakdown tester here either, the signs of a sick or weak engine are easy enough to see or feel in your gut... one simply "knows" when it is time to take the engine out behind the shed. Ran 2 whole seasons with a light choo choo puff out the oil cap before deciding it was time, ran fine w/a little blow by and I really did not care what cyl was the leaker, really, what does it matter when running engines that will never get rebuilt.

    SM guys never give up their line!

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    Perhaps a Fiero that never has to lift that runs 4hrs on fuel?

    This helps support my point Winners will always win. I am still sitting on a 2000 Insight hybrid, 3cyl 1.0L 5 speed, going to focus on battery cooling, repurposed air-conditioner FTW I will stop with the derail, but what I said about AMP vs Daytona is a point I want to see discussed, convince me.

    There is a easy fix, everyone gets 6 gallons, no drivers stint length. We shall call this "Era of the rabbit diesel"

    Wait what?!? You can not win anywhere/everywhere you race because of fuel inequality? Who picked that car? Who made the fuel rules? Some cars do better at different tracks? We all need equality! Where is my safe room, all this talk is upsetting. Sorry, not picking on you, just making a point. No amount of rules/fuel parity is going to fix a momentum car @ Daytona without making the same car a monster @ AMP
  10. Never thought about waving but a warm smile does form inside the helmet while mentally reciting your "Hey, Congrats..."🙂 We can learn from everyone, it is a odd position thinking of you guys as the rookies.

    Take a step back, forget the fastest low capacity and go with all low capacity as we all are playing with the same BCCR. What happens when everyone gets same PWR and same fuel ? Not everyone will produce results but you can bet the ones that do will turn everything on its head. Also What happens to the low VPI pony cars when you crank their pts up, do they strip the cars of the juicy bits? Do they take their already built toy to another sandbox? Do they even substantially slow down without their go faster parts? Do we dump everyone else's VPI to let them keep up? (terrible idea) Now going way out on a limb Extrapolating a few years down the road, do we take everyone off the chain then start a new series "Chump Classic"?

    Serious question What about low capacity stupid fast cars?

    What happened to your ChampCar today? - 2019

    Yesterday there was a car/boat(mostly boat) swap meet @ the local fairgrounds, found a camaro ? corvette? firebird? tuned port? LT1? K&N throttle body molded plastic air intake Y ,splitting the big oval in 2, left and right for dual air filters? Whatever its intended use, we will be turning it around and plumbing our twin throttle bodies to the airflow meter. It may not work any better then the home depo toilet cleanout previously used on this ChumpCar engine but it sure will look better and it is possibly cheaper @ $5!
  14. Almost stopped while walking by with my "new" gas tank, perhaps next time.

    All of those slap like a female dog when cold. You are fast enough, It's prob fine for another season.

    What makes you question this engine?
  17. I speculate that ChampCar is simply the best bang for the buck, simpler rules, excellent tracks, metric tonnes of seat time.

    ABS/Traction Control

    An ACTUAL winter package car!~No green font, drove it myself...
  19. Unfortunately agree but, like Rob, we are going to see if "on the cheap" still can podium.

    I am a firm believer a engine does not need to be warm, but does have to be run recently, please start it up then re do the test.

    Lets build better mouse traps, not reinvent the mouse. Want to delete but struggle to do so.

    Guys, the stockish fuel formula is already cooked into all aspects of the rules, we are currently experiencing podium pony cars fast and reliable enough to make up extra stops, more are being built as we speak, go ahead and do something to right all things wrong in our racing universe and we will practically end up with a different series. I know this is not where the thread started but, like the national budget and taxes, pushing numbers around gets the same or worse.
