    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. There are a number of teams that show up with big haulers. OB Prestige does too with big pictures of Lambos on the sides! Hahaha. But... they also seem to bring legal (or at minimum not outrageously fast and cheaty cars), so show up with a legal car and I am more than happy to go heads up racing with you! In fact, (and Ive said this before) I'd love to get our team to the point that we rock up in our Chevy Astro van and open trailer and the boys with the haulers all turn to look and mumble: "oh damn.... Wheelhouse Racing is here." Hahahahaha!
  2. Haha, we side piped the 626 at first. You couldn't stand to be in that car. Radio comms were totally impossible. It was SOOOOO much better once we put an extra resonator and routed out the back. We were all #becauseracecar only for about half of a test session!
  3. Fault or no fault, you should be commended in your chat with the marshall. That's a class act right there and an example to all of us as to how to handle situations like that.

    Is it just me, or is there no live timing on race monitor?

    What happened to your ChampCar today? - 2019

    @krispykritter I'm pretty sure they also said they won't be unreasonably harsh (I read that as a one race pass on fenders that are close). Maybe this is bad advice, but looking at your pics id bring the car as is and see what they say. If you have some way as a contingency then all the better.

    Differentials Learn Me!

    I had a bit of a back and forth with the man himself (Randy Pobst) when asking some volvo questions. his comment was "weld that baby up". If the other forum banter didnt make your mind up, theres the mic drop for you to tell your buddy! He doesnt like how it sounds in the pits....? You need better friends!😂 🤣

    In my opinion that would be one seriously bad attempt at a Datsun livery! It is however a great looking Ford livery. If you do something, do it properly! 😉

    Post-wreck checks

    We also feel your pain! We scrapped everything. The seat still seemed in really good shape, I was tempted to keep it, but my drivers said "We dont want to take that chance, lets buy a new seat". I had no good counter argument to that. The belts were done obviously. In fact, Im pretty sure the course worker cut the sfi tags off. Cant confirm, but Im cool with that practice to prevent crappy belts from being sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Helmet, yeah, this one was done for sure! I can almost give 100% certainty that the MFGer will tell you to replace it if you phone them. Helmets are a one time use item as far as testing goes, no one would certify for two crashes, I dont think. Realistically, the force that the HANS bolts took, THEN the corresponding force and compression that the foam inside took to slow your head down.... if it was a SA2010 model, I would certainly use the excuse to go upgrade to a 2015 cert model. Its the old "if you have a $200 head, keep wearing that $200 helmet".
  11. Now THAT I could get behind!
  12. So this wouldn't be valid?! Damn I'm jealous of you 626 guys!
  13. Yeah, but now it makes a 2 week turnaround to NL24. Can't please everyone. We may skip the 2nd Bogie to prep for that. How many teams really will make the trek from the south 2 weeks after/before a 24?
  14. Who's facebook page? Edit, I see it now, he edited the December schedule post.
