  1. All I will say here is they are a great marketing company. They have a great program for pushing a lot of product out into stores (incentive monies) which is why you usually see it "in stock" to the detriment of higher quality parts. IMHO, they keep their overall warranty percentage low by constantly pushing new numbers into the pipeline so most companies don't recognize the problem. Years of fieldwork calling on shops have left me with enough failure stories that I would NEVER use an OE Solutions part. BTW...Delco makes nothing, they are simply a reboxer (Motorcraft is a little
  2. THIS!!! PM me if you want more details. Yes, the company I work for competes with them in some product groups. I have seen the testing.....
  3. Knowing the alignment specs on the car would help a lot. Looks like dropping pressures by a pound or so would also be a step in the right direction. To me, it almost looks like too much camber in LF compared to the rest of the car. Overall, yes, temps are a bit low. Be sure you are not just taking a "surface temp", but are getting the probe into the rubber (more heat held there).
  4. Chris, I have some rather pointed questions on some hot button issues from the forums. While it may not be possible to be too specific (but appreciated if you can/will), I would like to hear your thoughts on the following: Regarding classing, are you more likely to favor the status quo with some adjustments, a move to points based classing, or possibly a two tiered “Open” class and two tiered “limited prep class”? What are your thoughts on addressing “fuel for points” or other fuel rules that would allow more fuel limited models another path to being competitive?

  10. Removing the 5 minute pit stop rule does have potential to address both fuel & tire issues. It allows you to remove pit entry/exit time controls....but...you would likely have to repurpose those folks to pit lane speed control. The "potential" for teams taking safety short cuts is there, but aren't we all adults (more or less)? Having said that, making that change would still allow top reams to change 4 tires every stop and likely do it faster than 90+% of most teams. You would still need some sort of "limits" on tools/number of tires and it still puts more burden on teams w
  11. Was referring to line up/insert/remove from car - not on the jugs, that's not a big deal
  12. There are many ways to approach the tire situation, but many just don't work out well for our series. 1) Tire exclusion list: too many changes, too much maintenance, there's always a "new hot tire" 2) Limit number of tires per weekend: tech has to mark tires, too much work/time in tech now, then someone has to check the tires in pit lane to see if they are marked - enforcement disaster 3) Add time to tire pit stops: again, enforcement hassle / impractical 4) Pit only for tires separate from fuel: too punitive to those that want to use up old tires The only pract
  13. Dry breaks are great "if" you are inserting & removing them once and filling from an overhead rig. This is what they were meant for. Putting them on 5 gallon jugs and having to line up/insert/remove/repeat doesn't gain you any time. Yes, I can see allowing them for "crossover" teams. Too bad we can't do something similar on fuel capacity. (Oops...here we go again....)
  14. And, as to all the "tire size limits". I have but this to say - no flares, stock wheel openings/fenders only. The door was left WIDE (no pun intended) open and many rushed through it!
  15. I too offered a petition to reign in tire changes/use - as with Troy - all denied.
