    Beer mostly. Trying to get to the finish line with our new Chump Car is wholly consuming me and my time!
    New to racing besides some arrive and drive kart events. 2015 is the first year of wheel to wheel for my team and me.

  1. Each team needs a person (referred to as fire bottle guy) that has an AFGS-9001 certification (can typically be obtained through local fire dept with a weekend course) that can ensure fire safety for the team. It's typically a fairly involved job, so this person doesn't normally drive for the weekend. This rule is laid out fairly clearly on page 17.3 of the BCCR. The other job of the AFGS certification is to stand with the fire bottle at the ready when you are fueling at yell at all the noobs to "put your visor down".
  2. Three should be fine. Don't be afraid to ask pit neighbours to do a fire bottle for you or help in pit stops. Most likely they will be help to help and give pointers. Also, being your first race, chances are good you wont win. Have the goal to finish and drive the car on the trailer at the end of the weekend (i.e. its still running, but also dont crash it because you are getting hot, tired and sloppy). So if you do 1 hour stints and need to park the car for a little bit and rest, then so be it. Try to get as much seat time as possible and go have fun.
  3. I agree, id rather not add weight to the hauler if not needed. So we use tires. Ive thought about jugs full of water. Transport empty, fill at the track. But seeing as we have spare tires that are needed in the pit anyways, it just seems so rational to use them.
  4. Wholly "threading the needle" batman! That was a crazy one. +1 for Hero3 Silver. We also make sure to only use a 1amp charging port from the USB.
  5. After posting the previous Kimi clip, I certainly cant leave this one hanging....
  6. +1 on content with junkyard engines for our team. In fact, that was a factor when choosing my car.
  7. *My co-renter/friend/dad/wife: "Hey, I totally smashed up a car in that last stint and I'm on probation until I drive better. Can i use your helmet for my next stint" *Me: .....
  8. 13 gal fuel capacity? As the owner of a Maxima with same engine but probably some 600 lbs heavier, I can confirm without seeing it that this car would haul butt! Maybe even fast enough to make up the extra fuel stops! LOL shorter wheel base. Lighter weight. This thing would be a BLAST to drive. GLWS
  9. As long as we aren't actually running 9:1 and burning through our fuel tank excessively fast...
  10. Bung is just downstream of the y-pipe. Everything else is pretty much stock. Cone filter and intake but using the oem maf/housing. As for distraction... considering I ran as fast as the car has ever gone at that travk last night in high heat and humidity and the lap wasn't anywhere near perfect... yep it may just be one extra thing we don't need!
  11. Seems about as plug and play as it gets.
  12. Actually, had autometer in my head. Actually AEM. Shoulda checked before posting. Pretty sure this is it: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/avm-30-0300?seid=srese1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7IbAyrKY6gIVg43ICh0YKg17EAQYAiABEgIUmPD_BwE
  13. Some good info guys! Thanks. A bit more research online to see about calibration. Will see if I can scan and see what OEM readings at idle are. 50 psi. Custom y-pipe, similar looking to the warpspeed. No, not really. No flames, no backfires. Pulling plugs to see how they look, but last time we had them out with same engine (just without the AFR meter to look at), they were fine.
  14. Tuned...?! Weve never had it tuned. This is our first glimpse into what the engine is actually doing. Oh yeah, sensor is in the exhaust pipe, probably 1.5-2 feet behind the y-pipe.
