  1. Thanks for the detailed explanations, John. I'm not surprised to learn we have the same coverage as other motorsports organizations, but I'm glad to have it confirmed.
  2. Can we actually see the wording of the insurance terms? The wording in the rulebook is very strong, and much more likely to hold up over something written on a forum. I've always wondered exactly what the chump-provided personal insurance coverage is, and this thread has given me a good reason to ask now. Also, what about the series' safety record and number of insurance claims--are summary reports available to the membership? We are all obviously comfortable taking on quite a lot of risk, but it would be good to know more accurately how much. Seems a fair request.
  3. Doc, I really liked your design, so built one very similar. I haven't installed it in the car yet, but it's working well. I was able to observe the cavitation issue by plunging the upright pump into and out of water, but only when the outlet was restricted. Since the pump will be restricted in the working system, I installed the pump on its side as you did--no more cavitation issue. BTW, instead of using water and an ice block, my plan is to freeze windshield washer bottles full of water, then adding liquid water to the proper level. In the cooler I chose, the bottles fit nicely: 2 lying on their side edge on the bottom, then a third filled with air laying flat on top, to keep the other 2 bottles from floating/moving around. Windshield washer bottles are nice and thin, so the ice isn't insulated much. I added bolts to the caps, for a snug fit. I'm hoping using the bottles will reduce the sloshing. Thanks for the ideas.
  4. It's called Racerender2, and the data that is overlaid came from 'wifilapper', which is also our pitside telemetry program. Pretty sweet setup, actually!
  5. Here's a vid from one of the rookie drivers from our rookie team "Red Cow Racing". We all had a blast, and safe to say, are now HOOKED !! - Paul >http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJFs8f1AIQc
  6. By the way, does anyone have a good solution for mounting a phone to the car, which passes chumpcar tech?
  7. Just to add to this thread - count me as a successful user of this app. For me, it was Calabogie, using an optimus 2x phone and linksys wrt54g running tomato. I had one stock antenna and one 7db. Planning on this setup for chumpcar in sept!
  8. It seems to be that the weakest point is the plastic foot that came with the gopro in any case, so I wonder why the mount is supposed to be metal. Regardless, I think I'll get some of these mounts. So for 1 5/8" tubing, the 1.5" mount will be the right choice?
  9. Hi, did the aluminium mounts get approved by chumpcar tech staff? I'd like to get these, but only if they'll be accepted.
