  1. @Slugworks Paul You said, "Shouldn't VPIs be about true performance potential?" The TRUE potential of a car is not shown by anyone but the best. I must not be picking up what you're puttin down. I think it'd be pretty cool to see a test day with Randy P, and Tomo driving a few of the top cars and see which ones are really fastest. Should that be the only factor in points value, probably not but it should be a pretty heavily weighted one. Actually this would be better money spent by Champcar than hiring the ignored dyno to travel to races.
  2. Isn’t the best team most likely to show the true performance potential of a car? The points should be based off of what a really good team can do. If another team isn’t that good they have things to improve on. Seems to to me that you are suggesting that that an inexperienced team should get a points break.
  3. Yep And why the aero rules are not specific or limiting enough yet. Its not about what’s being done it’s about what could be done by a team with a dump truck full of money. And there are a few teams already that have access to several dump trucks full.
  4. No thats the E30 recipe, and works best if you tape off the grill on hot days. German cars love heat.
  5. I think its an oiling issue that kills some of them. Attention to detail in installation and using (at least in the Miata) the ecotech Miata oil pan has kept ours alive. So far, knocking on wood.... Of and they really should not have the snot run out of them north of 7k all day long.....
  6. Yep nothing better than the multi generational teams. We’ve had a wonderful time.
  7. Seriously one of the best analogies on how this is progressing.
  8. Loook Nate you have an e30 and we all know you only get advantages not disadvantages 😂😂😂😂. Seriously though a distance penalty makes sense both ways. If they ever did the track switch again at that point laps should convert to distance and then make it as close as they can. Im no engineer though so I’d prolly have to vote against it 😂😂
  9. You did get that advantage of you lead nearly doubling when we went to the full course for three hours. It was fun but that nuance was a bit wonky. 😎
  10. For 20 points the builder has room to do this 😀.
  11. We have have the timer thing. I turn around t on and off manually. I don’t care for how the timer works. It’s oddly distracting to me to have it come on when I don’t expect it. Then it doesn’t necessarily run long enough to cool you down. Its a a personal preference sort of thing
  12. I think there’s a pretty strong commitment to it. Just speculating on my part but it doesn’t feel like a trial period.
