    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    unless you do something exotic. the car you start with is the cheapest part of racing. Our car is a $500 car with a $500 cage (we installed, learning as we went)

    ADVANTAGE. because the only reason you pick a car that can't go two hours is because it has some redeemable quality above cars that can go 2 hours.

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    my order of selecting a car: 1. manual trans 2.can it go 2 hours 3. lap times (power to weight is a factor here) 4. will it last / can I get parts 5. can I afford it

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    I wonder what happens with the large fuel capacity teams if you offer then 50 points to lose 5 gallons of capacity. I doubt many take it.

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    flags come into play a lot as does race length. odd number of hour races give an advantage to the cars that can't go 2 hours. some yellows and reds and the advantage gets taken away somewhat.
  7. I thought everyone just took their spacers off to get through tech?
  8. I'm wondering if a pool noodle would functionally do as much as a pulled and rolled fender. It might.
  9. @Bill Strong can we make this like a yearbook and allow each team to supply a quote to put next to their submitted image?

    V6 e30 Quasi Build Thread

    remember that one time at bandcamp when the weight of the E30 was magically changed just exactly so you could run an M50 in the E30? 😛

    V6 e30 Quasi Build Thread

    why an E30 for a swap like this? I would think there are lower point cars you can build from.

  15. I don't see what the big deal is? you just put your spacers on after tech
