  2. Oh, and I blew up an engine at a Nelson Ledges 24h at about 7am due to a cheap no-name Chinese built hose. The hose was used to remote mount a oil pressure sensor. It blew open like a banana.
  3. The quality of the rubber is the big deal. There are a lot of cheap hoses out there are just not designed for motorsport. I tend to stick with Earls hoses and fittings purchased from Jegs or Summit. I also have used Fragola as well. They make some nice hard to find fittings.
  4. click refresh on the page as you are using a cached version. you could also clear the cache for the day too.
  5. well. from my point of view, I have seen no errors with the online calculator. so yes. that's still up and working. That's the tool that tech is using to tech swapped cars. If for some reason you don't like the swap calculator, there is one simple fix. don't swap.

  7. It's amazing what the vin can tell you about a car, the engine, and everything! We once had a team tell us a certain car was XXX. It looked like it. But after a quick vin lookup, we found the car was actually a XYX. The car looked the same as the claimed model, but wasn't.
  8. Yes. we were trying to find the vin on the engine. I found it and confirmed it was what was stated.
  9. I recommend external antennas at tracks like Daytona. Mainly because the signal is degraded or lost as soon as you enter the banking. A roof antenna helps keep a strong'ish signal. Doesn't always work like we want it. But it does most of the time. They also work well at weak signal tracks, or on cars that the hotspot is buried inside the car. Center mounted on the roof is best. Bolt it in, magnets are not very strong on most of the aftermarket antennas. Construction glue works well at holding them on too.
  10. I have taken down VPI Calculator until we can review the data. the PDF has the correct numbers.
  11. NCM will be using the Purple 35 flag for hot pulls. For those that don't know what a purple 35 is, picture it like the F1 virtual safety car. drop to 35mph. maintain the distance between you and the car in front.
  12. Per the Supps and the Road Atlanta website: Fuel on site: Credit card pumps available in the Club Paddock. The VP Racing Fuels gas station dispenses 93 unleaded, C9 (96 unleaded) and 110 leaded during both public and private track rentals. The fuel station is also dispensing C10 non-ethanol 100 octane fuel.
  13. added to rules webpage misc paperwork https://champcar.org/web/rules.php
  14. It's good to have two radios in the car. one connected to the car. and a second that the driver can use to talk to your team in the paddock if he is sitting in the tow truck. Gives you an idea of what is wrong with the car, and you can have all the hammers ready when they get the car to the paddock. Its also good to tell your driver where in the paddock or what pit space you are in. They seem to forget all that.
  15. I left it out of the BCCR to reduce the size. I'll link it on the rules page for future downloads
  16. Updated link to new Arrive and Drive page
  17. Checklist.pdf here is a paddock and pit checklist
  18. I'll check with Dana. He can ask the track peeps. I know they had 96 during petit as I had to pay that price for my generator fuel. Well. I could have gone into town. But I was lazy.
