    Would love to do both, but I think if I tow that far we'll just wait until October and do the Rd America race. Plus, the Gingerman race is a week after our "other series" race at home in Birmingham. Hard to pass up a race that allows you to go back to the shop the night between races if you need to.

    Good to know, I guess those of us that have not driven there just think it is closer than it really is. Road Atlanta is probably similar in places, there are things to hit in 5, 7, and 12 but unless you really screw up they don't come into play. Edit: And since when did we worry about getting off track on a thread around here?

    Maybe you need to check your windings? Ha! (let's see how long it takes you to get it).

    It's all about the room for error, I have never raced WG but it just looks like there is very little room for error there. I raced with @Hurljohn at Charlotte last month and there was little room for error in the infield there but we survived. Contrast that with Buttonwillow where I drove last September and there is very little to hit at that track so you can afford to hang it out a little or make an error and not pay a price for either. But, a bad choice at any track in the wrong place can make for a bad day. Makes me also think of NOLA, if you push it coming on to the front stretch there is a nice concrete wall to greet you whereas there isn't much else that can cause you grief.
  6. I was able to get my SC under 3000 not counting driver or fuel but not 2800, but for sure you have the wrong hp.

    That's when I head to the RV. Let's hope no lightning/storm this time around.

    Garages? It's parc ferme isn't it? You drive it, park it in line on pit road at the end of the first day, get back in drive it some more the next day, get your trophy, load up and go home. At least that's my plan.

    Vehicle weight list

    This sounds to me like y'all are trying to "solve the problem we don't have". I really don't see tire width specs as something that is needed, just complicates an already complicated enough set of specs. The safety aspect on weight reduction, there is definitely room for discussion on that.

    You bunch of lightweights. There is a reason we chose a pig as our mascot/theme.

    Kill Switch Recommendations

    If that is the case, then they are not wiring their cars per this rule: 3.14.2. The dash or console switch MAY be the sole kill switch, or it MAY be a second switch, wired in series with an existing or additional switch located elsewhere on the car. If the switch is wired in series, the interruption of either switch, independent of the other, must kill all power and vehicle operations. Look at the diagram I posted earlier, that is how you wire it to discharge the alternator. The switch is around $40. Edit: as I stated earlier, the reason I had a problem was the two leads into the resistor were twisted onto each other effectively bypassing the resistor.

    Kill Switch Recommendations

    This is the description on the Pegasus site, seems to make sense. Like Mender said, if you kill the engine with the ignition switch before turning off the kill switch you should be fine with just a 2 or 4 pole switch, but as I said above people forget and kill the car with the kill switch some times. This should protect the alternator if you use this switch and wire it up properly in the event somebody does what has happened in my car.

    Kill Switch Recommendations

    Yeah but people forget and it only takes one time to kill an alternator or as I have unfortunately found out two times. At least I suspect thats what happened. In my case the resistor had twisted 180 degrees and the in and out were together creating a dead short.

    Kill Switch Recommendations

    My understanding of this whole kill switch thing that RPW or Pegasus sells is if you kill the car with a kill switch you need a way to discharge the alternator or the surge can kill it. There is a thread on here a few years ago that detailed that issue and describes the way to wire it up with a resistor that comes with the switch and discharges the alternator.
