  1. Sitting on the grid wondering how your day is going to go and you see this. Send it anyway???
  2. In general, not a bad concept. A few issues that would need sorted out. As mentioned, today, course flag stations typically do not have/display green flags. Line of site to yellow station to get slowed/in line, single file by the time you reach the plane of the flag station. This is fine until you are racing in a group and the yellow pops out as your group in very close the station and the novice drive slams on the brakes (some of our races are a bit congested) - it will take a bit of common sense as to how these instances get called. If single file and no passing u
  3. Might want to call Brian Hoover at Auto Body Specialists in Columbus, OH. He was running a pretty quick first Gen RX-7 in Champ. He may have some good input for you. (Pretty sure it was on 15's as well.)
  4. This would have been easier/better with "SFI approved manufacturer". SFI is about like FIA - the manufacturer makes the same part, but you pay extra for the SFI / FIA "tax" for approval. https://www.sfifoundation.com/wp-content/pdfs/manufacturers/1.1 Manufacturers List.pdf Enforcement of the "SFI" rating will be a challenge...... And by the way, the parts need to be "recertified" every two years: https://www.sfifoundation.com/wp-content/pdfs/SpecList3.pdf How will this be enforced as well? BTW, I have no problem with the valuat
  5. Seems to be dependent on the day and time you ask....
  6. In going to the SFI site, I found that most major flywheel manufacturers have SFI approval. I am assuming this is good enough - i.e. how is tech going to ascertain if a flywheel is SFI or not? Regardless, as previously mentioned, all this fuss over a buried component as well as small multi disc clutches being perceived as "non-entry level" while aftermarket brakes, flares and huge aero are not an issue???
  7. 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
  8. 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.....
  9. 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).
  10. 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?
