    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. Hahaha, the bike race or the street circuit?! Now, if we want to get into crazy suggestions, maybe a little more sane than Circuit GV, what about GP3R??? https://gp3r.com/en/races/nascar-weekend
  2. Correct. Park and public roads. Kind of like going to race at Belle Isle in Detroit if anyone has been there. We could probably all go and ride our bikes on the circuit for an impromptu race though if you guys wanted!
  3. Well.... if it saves you from ruining your $150 rubber hose then maybe its worth it....
  4. Agreed! In my opinion a method to secure the box "permanently" that allows access to the top without undoing it all is a MUCH better way to go about it. Not only is it easier to refill the box by just unclipping the lid, it also leaves no/little chance that someone is going to screw it up when in a rush. ive been thinking about doing something like an aluminum frame that surrounds the box and bolts to the floor. That way any lateral and/or forward force in a crash is taken by the frame, not the tie downs.
  5. I wouldn't be opposed to that. Serious question though, how would a higher treadwear tire react to the punishment we put it through? At what point/treadwear would the tire just start chunking and we actually go through MORE tires?
  6. 10 out of 10 I am in! The Albino Rhino wants to go wreak some havoc on Mosport soooooo badly!
  7. Bill Strong giving economics lessons... we're doomed before we even got started.
  8. To be honest, its probably not that much of a stretch. The track apparently told ChumpCanada they didnt want to be associated with the name/series. Champ races at Indy, Tremblant cant really thumb their nose and say they are better than Indy can they. .... Actually, wait.... they are French, they may just do that!
  9. Yeah. Factory? We didn't replace, it's a 180k mile car.
  10. Last race we had a long pedal as weekend wore on. Thought it was just knock back. Replaced two front ss lines and full brake bleed. Pedal still soft.
  11. With no booster (car off and/or booster vacuum disconnected) push almost as hard as I can. Hard pedal. With booster, medium pressure puts it nearly to the floor.
  12. Any help would be appreciated before I just throw money at parts. We bled the brakes and just rebled to make sure. All good for fluid/air. No visible leaks in the brake system. When the car is off the pedal is nice amd firm like normal and won't go to the floor with lots of solid foot pressure. When the car is running the pedal goes really soft and we can't get a nice firm pedal. When we disconnect the vacuum hose to the booster the pedal goes nice and firm again. Is the booster "over powering" a failing master cylinder (internal seal or something?). It seems to me that a failing booster would Simply mean less boost on the pedal which would mean a soft pedal again...? Are we dealing with a failing master cylinder? What else am I missing?
