  1. Let them complete. Why would anybody ever sponsor a series where they can't race for the win? Just make sure to enforce the rules equally and transparently.
  2. It's delicious. Like a Brandy soaked Cherry, with cinnamon. There's also more traditional cakes, for the less adventurous:
  3. Cheese cake makes your drivers faster. Especially Bailey's cheese cake with Fireball cherries. Chrissycheesecake makes whatever you can dream up, and I'll be delivering cheesecakes at this race. Send requests to me, or message chrissycheesecake on Facebook at https://m.facebook.com/Chrissycheesecakegmr/ You know you want some. 😁
  4. Dammit stop agreeing with me! We're supposed to be trash talking here!
  5. @Crank Yankers Racing maybe if you can keep the car running you'll have a shot. 😀
  6. It's OK, the MR2 clique seems to be taking me in. Something about going real fast, lots of aero, breaking too much, points assignments...
  7. Haha I'm just giving you crap. How about we keep fuel in the engine and you keep fluid in the brake lines? See how it shakes out from there... Congrats on winning Nelson btw. Sorry I couldn't be there, forgot I had already committed to spending the weekend in northern MI with the girlfriend. Still got in trouble because I wouldn't stop watching race monitor...
  8. Ya'll acting like we didn't win last year, or set the track record the two years before, or just set the track record at the national championship....I feel like what should be defending a win at the home track is suddenly becoming a race for redemption.
  9. Welded a tab to the cage then used the Go-Pro sticky mount for that video. Forgot to turn off image stabilization which is why it moves around. For the phone and livestream we use the Bill Strong Special: Battery – Buy from Amazon https://www.anker.com/products/variant/powercore-26800/A1277011 Cell phone – Galaxy S7 is my best unit so far vs S8 and S9. Joby Griptight Pro Cell Phone Mount – Phone Mount. $29.95 at best Buy or from amazon https://joby.com/phone-tripods-tablet-stands/griptight-pro-all/griptight-mount-pro If phone is USB C – use these cables - https://www.amazon.com/SUNGUY-Aluminum-Braided-Charging-Samsung/dp/B077Q3QB85/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1528207004&sr=8-8&keywords=usb+90+degree If Phone is USB Micro – Use these https://www.amazon.com/SUNGUY-Reversible-Samsung-Motorola-Controller/dp/B01COTBJ2M/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1528207107&sr=8-19&keywords=usb+90+degree+micro Clamp for cage https://www.amazon.com/UTEBIT-C-Clamps-Aluminum-Adjustable-Photography/dp/B06XNQ8G77/ref=pd_ybh_a_201?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=W875HM2M9M5R44V04AW9 Or this clamp for smaller metal tabs that you weld to cage https://www.amazon.com/PEDCO-PED05020-BRK-UltraClamp/dp/B000ABB4HC/ref=pd_ybh_a_211?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=HCRWAMFQ38AMYR0TNAPA
  10. The dyno runs were incredibly quick (~5s), which led to an artificially low numbers at low rpm for GWR, including a low peak torque number. Peak power was accurate. The GWR open-loop tune is leanish, with an aggressive closed loop fuel correction to a richer target. Helps keep the mixture stable when the heat causes the injectors and pumping systems to act up, and was biased lean because we were venting the fuel tank into intake for this race (again, heat. Too much vapor to just vent to atmosphere safely). On track the system learns quickly, and by the time the driver is full throttle, the ECU has corrected to target. On the dyno, RPMs rose so quickly that the engine didn't get back to its fueling target until ~5200rpm. Fueling above that speed was correct. Result was that the dyno was not representative of GWR's on-track power (we can't accelerate from 3500-5200rpm in a second on track), but was accurate and correlated with the dyno we tune on above ~5200rpm. As for curves, here's GWR (left) and RVA (right):

    Air Dam/Splitter Questions

    The package deal is 40 points. Any passive aero in front of the front wheel centerline and below the hood (splitter+air dam) = 10 points Any passive aero between the axles (flat bottom) = 10 points Any passive aero behind the rear axle and below the rear bumper (diffuser) = 10 points Any single element wing = 10 points This is what 40 points of aero looks like: Hard to see, but there's an underbody and diffuser in that picture. No breaks from tip to tail. This arrangement has been 40 points for a year. Come check our logbook (GWR #991) at Road Atlanta if you all don't believe me. And will all you donkey-holes stop speculating about crap on the forums??? (not directed at you @The Aero Man, you're just trying to find out what's up) The level poop posted here with no or poor evidence is astounding. Confirm fact, then post. The other way around just pisses people off. Ok, now I'll go find Bill's camera setup instructions that I originally came here looking for, and get back to prepping my car. Thank you to this thread for reminding me why I stopped visiting the forum. And @The Aero Man, sorry for ranting on your reply. @Wink, hopefully that answered your question.

    2018 National Championships NCM

    OOOOOOH. 16 teams that are guaranteed to win the points championship if they win NCM. And a bunch more fast cars just a point or two back. If even half of these teams show up, this is going to be a crazy race. We'll be there Also, @enginerd, I agree with @red0. You should be working on your racecar.
  14. Viscosity is a function of temperature. Viscosity is what matters to the engine, not weight. A 50wt oil at 250F has roughly the viscosity of a 30wt oil at 200F. Determine the actual viscosity required for your engine (M20B25 gets real angry below ~8cST in the sump), look at your temps, and choose oil wt accordingly. As a side note, pro stock drag cars run insanely low weight oils because their oil temps stay insanely low - you don't build up much heat in a 10 second pull. They need a 10wt just to get the viscosity down into the right ballpark to be able to pump it through the bearings at 7000rpm. You can calculate the viscosity your oil is actually at here: http://www.viscopedia.com/calculator/astm-d341-viscosity-temperature-extrapolation/
