  1. sorry to see you go... prices dictate interest usually around here. might also want to say where you're located.
  2. when I posted my video at indy it wasn't the first time in that race or first event they "were on notice"... happens next race at VIR.. still on notice.... I'm not sure why we should expect different results.

    Daytona 2020

    everybody get a melted piston "award"
  4. so do I get free M3 top hats for my E36 yet?
  5. My favorite was when I was on the concrete wall of the back stretch taking pics and a security guy asked me if I could stand back more. I said "so you're asking if I can stand more in the road with my back to traffic" He just smiled and drove off
  6. nobody is going to follow that rule. If you're under a full yellow can't see a yellow in eye sight and get the call for green, people will go.
  7. 2x oil pan rule? everyone knows E30 oil pans are made from titanium
  8. if anybody is looking for the deal I mentioned: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fire-Extinguisher-10Lb-ABC-Dry-chemical-Lot-of-2-SCRATCH-DENT/261862051443?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 2x for $73 shipped, no core charge
  9. I found a place that sold me 2 recertified ones on ebay for less than recharging one locally.
  10. this stuff can work magic with a microfiber: https://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-PlastX-Plastic-Cleaner-Polish/dp/B0000AY3SR
  11. you're just lucky it wasn't brick that you rubbed. time for a skid plate made of repurposed material for no points
  12. big money teams should face the same reliability odds as average teams. allowing money is no object items allows them an edge to use money alone to get ahead. same reason race gas needs to be banned
  13. I should probably just reach out to them. I just quoted again for 70" with welded on bottom mounts and came up with $580 (no end plates or uprights).
  14. $800+ for just the wing width I need in the builder's DIY cheapest option. otherwise I would be interested.
  15. I hate when rules made to keep costs down double costs. I'm also glad I asked here. looks like I'll be ordering the similar one that looks like it's sprayed with black spray paint
  16. I was thinking of throwing one of these generic, but well built wings on my E36 if the rules allow: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NRG-CARBON-FIBER-GLASS-69-GT-RACING-SPOILER-TAIL-WING-ADJUSTABLE-ALLOY-BLACKET/400789488788?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D7db3f716d6d34fe591861ffa4d32741d%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D163679231008%26itm%3D400789488788%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A07abd55a-afaf-11e9-9bf4-74dbd1805f94|parentrq%3A2e9dcd3716c0aad9a21252fefffe221e|iid%3A1 Is the no carbon rule applicable here? I don't want the wing because it's carbon. I want it because it's cheap compared to anything else I can find. I would argue that at this price it's not a real carbon wing, but likely fiberglass with one layer of carbon on top for looks.
  17. maybe we need a petition that says 2x rule has a maximum value. so like you can spend the lesser of 2x or $500 per caliper. (picked a number out of the air)
  18. just remember, when claiming your car as a different year, you have to do it all.. can't just pick and choose best of both
  19. as long as my cayman gt4 shows first place that's fine with me
  20. How do I nominate this for post reply of the month? Bravo.
  21. don't forget that AER is not bracket racing seriously, if you go on their facebook page or forums and suggest this you'll start a war.
  22. do they have min pit times? probably not I'm guessing. This means a fast car can run an hour then splash and go while the slower cars get a little time back.
  23. nobody would do that, you'd just have less stint lengths. this fixed fuel capacity differences in a way. it's a fun solution with some downsides.
