  1. We ran a th350 behind a sbc 350 for years in this type of racing. I changed the fluid about every 4 or 5 races (usually because I was pulling the engine...). Had a small parts store cooler in front of the radiator and that's about it. We did have a manual valve body on it. Never had a single issue. The only downside we noticed is that if the engine died, it was more difficult to restart than a manual. Meaning if it had issues idling, your day was done. Manual equipped cars it doesn't really matter, because they aren't ever at idle speed once on track. An automatic equipped car goes to lower rpms a lot on track.
  2. You did. Haha. I'm still running 1987 brakes.
  3. Yep. Same. However, some champcar are selling for multiple dozens of thousands of dollars.
  4. No. No sir. Irish car bombs. Equal parts Jamison and Bailey's in a shot glass. Then drop that in about 8 ounces or so of Guinness. Tastes like chocolate malt or cake if you do it quickly. Delicious and highly messed up.
  5. Replace "beers" with car bombs and that would be more accurate.
  6. What am I looking at here? New racecar? @Mopar 4 Life are you dudes gonna be at wgi this year? I hope so...
  7. Thanks @Huggy. You saved me a lot of time and energy. I owe you one next time i see you at the track!
  8. @Huggy is there an ideal size that you recommend? There are many widths available at the same height. Is there going to be an effective difference between a grid that is say 17.5 inches high and has a range of 40 to 50 inches versus that same 17.5 inches high and a range of 30 to 40 inches? In both cases, the grid would be cut to the shorter end. I'm guessing it would be the same effectiveness because of the "path" variation on the grids. Lemme see if I can link the 2 I am talking about.... https://www.frostfighter.com/product/product-132 Versus https://www.frostfighter.com/product/product-134 What size is the one you have? Do you have the part number? Thanks!
  9. Oh cool. I missed the link. Thanks! It's dBA. +/- 1.5 dB. It's only 20$. If that is what champcar is using, should be affordable enough to get one to test. Just rip up and down the street or driveway (or do a burnout) with the meter nearby. Haha.
  10. *shiver* Just regular blanks, please! The other ones have all sorts of stress risers and failure points! Plus, they aren't needed. Newer race pads don't outgas like the old pads. That was the reason for the holes.
  11. Serious question. Can you at least tell us what scale you are intending to use with the champcar provided equipment? Or, can you give us a model number of the equipment? When I worked with the safety department we had good equipment for this sort of thing. However, the scale used made a big difference in the recorded value. Thanks!
  12. Good question... I would think so because it most likely doesn't conform to the stock shape and diameter, etc... I could see the argument for "it should be cheaper than a coilover " but that might be splitting hairs.
  13. Me neither. Just to clarify, do you have an issue with using 2 front stock manifolds on am engine instead of a front and a rear (cuz now they be left and right...)
  14. I believe the interpretation is that if it's part of a coilover, it's free.
