    2019 VPI List Is Out!

    Long, long ago wasn’t this thread about the release of the 2019 vpi list?

    Yeah to give it some cred say it has an M blah blah blah engine swap.

    (Sshhhh, only if its a BMW)
  4. Ah man I missed that, that is sort of unfortunate timing. But like you, there is no way we miss a home race.

    Tilting rule table? You should really step away from the keyboard.

    I am keeping up just fine. Tbird with 22 gal at 300 or mustang at 200 same thing. I have raced against the Looney tunes car, it does just fine for sure in 7 hr race and was in the top 3 of an 8 hour race until a late issue the last time I remember being in a race with them. So apparently it is not woe is me for everybody running one of those. Edit: back to work so later on this thread.

    Your argument might hold water if the points for each were anywhere near the same. Mustang at 200 not getting dropped vs an e36 dropping from 520 to 475 for example is an apples to oranges comparison.

    What fuel pump?

    Sounds good in theory but not sure what output you could realistically employ to do it.

    What fuel pump?

    No its not. Thats why you put the valve in the line before the surge tank, you create the more than 10 psi back pressure (actually runs about 15-17) with the ball check valve so that you have indication that fuel is feeding from the main tank. When there is no more fuel in the main tank the pressure drops on the feed and you know all you have left is what is in the surge tank.

    About the same number that would if the points had been dropped by 50.

    Even though your car points were not lowered, doesn't it start at 200 points?

    Sounds like y'all need more fuel capacity! (Pot stir)

    What fuel pump?

    Yeah, too early and before my coffee.

    What fuel pump?

    I run the stock pump as a lift pump to feed the surge tank and feed the rail with a Bosch. I had a failure on a Walbro at Daytona this year, it had worked a year maybe a little more, probably half a dozen races and some DE's. I have been hearing Walbros have issues with heat, the off road racing guys say they have abandoned using Walbro because of that and go with Bosch or whatever the expensive one that starts with A? Sorry memory fails me as I type this. I lost the stock pump at NCM this year which took us out of the race on Sunday because it was just too damn hot to get in the back of a race car in 96 degree heat and get back out to finish in 20 something place. I think that pump was the original Denso that Lexus (Toyota) put in the car from 1992. I put a cheap ass pump back in to get it running a few weeks after the race, so probably something I should revisit. I use a 10 psi cracking pressure check valve in the line feeding the surge tank from the main tank and put a pressure sender in front of it. You can monitor the gauge in the panel when the main tank is getting dry by watching this feed pressure, gives a lap or two warning.
