  1. I heard BMWs come from the factory with a special windshield tint that prevents the driver from seeing the color yellow. Supposed to reduce eye strain or something.
  2. Pittsburgh - Not so much the layout as the fact that our car has some sort of allergic reaction to it. We have had more weird issues to fix in pit/wall bumps/spins there than every other race combined. Maybe I need to offer up a sacrificial french fry sandwich to the Western PA deities before the race if we ever go again* *we wont go again. The team took a vote and I was the only "maybe".
  3. Gingerman- our favorite. We feel most competitive there and it is just a fun track. Since we moved from Michigan its harder to get back there but hopefully next year. Watkins Glen- pretty much our local track now. We feel underpowered there but we have such fun in the esses and into the bus stop. We get a little better every year and will be back again in 2020. Laguna Seca- Haven't raced Champcar there but I did do a Skip School in December. It was such a fun track! Would really like to pull off a race sometime. May have to rent a seat to make it work since its a 3k mile tow.
  4. We always had a problem with EC but as a pokey midpack team we thought we were the only ones so we didnt complain. But we are also the weirdos that think nothing should be "free", $500 cars should be the norm, Bill Strong should run for President, and its all been downhill since the e36 was declared 5 hundo points 😁
  5. I'm not much of a smack talker but I guarantee we will dominate the eggs & hominy burrito class!
  6. I saw a similar statement earlier in the thread, but why would starting -100 laps make an EC team not want to come? They are not racing for the win anyway. If they end the race 1000 laps ahead of the next closest legal car, they still don't "win". If you showed these results to anybody, they would say the Cayman won both days. That diminishes hard work of the rules legal winners. I have never understood why EC cars were mixed in.
  7. Thats a perfect example of why something needs to be done about the EC cars in the standings. If Champcar people cant figure out who the winner is by quickly looking at the results, then its a problem.
  8. In our pit this weekend we were talking about how getting the EC cars out of the standing would be nice. I think starting 100 laps down would be an easy way to do it. I dont like showing non-Champcar people the results of the race. Its hard to explain why your actual finish is higher than it looks to somebody without opening multiple pages and crossreferencing the EC cars out. Then you just look like a crazy person trying to explain why your 45th position is actually a 37. 😁
  9. You guys are completely missing the real issue here. We have Champcar authority figures using the wrong spelling of "color". This isn't the United Englands of Canada! Whats next, are the 2020 rules going to require we all eat Heinz beans for breakfast on raceday? Our cars can only use Lucas electronics?
  10. Not easy and not cheap is how my brother describes his first marriage.
  11. We also wave a broom for the exact same reasons. Sounds like we need to make sure we are never pitted side by side to avoid confusing the drivers!
  12. We unloaded the car after its post Gingerman hibernation to start looking at it and going "yup" before Watkins. I also ordered stickers from RVA.
  13. Since fart cans/cold airs/crayola spark plug wires are already free, I am working on a petition to make master cylinder sweat bands free for 2020. They are an essential piece of safety equipment and they save me ones of dollars in brake fluid costs. Its really common sense.
  14. Through both driver skill (We ain't got much!) and car prep (I won''t spend VTEC money, we run junkyard motors, and I leave some weight in the car) we will never be at the pointy end. I hitched my wagon to the "build what you know" advice of yesterday and have a garage full of Honda parts and no desire to toss it all away for a different chassis. We do it for fun. But, and there is always a "but", we still want to feel competitive, at least in the midpack. As long as we can continue to pass some cars then we will keep doing it. Speed creep has been very real over the last few years and it gets a little frustrating at times. I am firmly in the "nothing should be free camp" but that ship has sailed long ago. I think it would be much more intimidating to start from scratch today. As the series continues to grow and speed creep, we will likely be left behind. Circle of life and all that. We have been doing 2 races a year but are only doing 1 this year. We decided to do a second Lemons Rally instead.
  15. I was taught 2 feet in. However I have been working on an alternate strategy for when things go south...
