  1. Great deal! And you get a piece of BioHazard memorabilia! Lol
  2. Boxster S, I might know a guy who is familiar with them.
  3. All 85.5 and newer 944s have the same 21.1 gallon tank.
  4. Yes, and I would still choose a Boxster to race if I was going to start over.
  5. If you keep saying things like this Jer you’re going to find yourself elected again, whether you like it or not!
  6. I had a conversation with Dana at Nelson on just that topic. He reassured me that the board is aware of the perception and they are taking steps to make sure the board remains fair and impartial.
  7. I like where Roger is going with his question. And I’m really hoping that we can stay on topic. I think it’s a good idea to reevaluate/reconfirm VPIs. I believe that 944s have or are currently undergoing an examination to reverify their values and I’m OK with that as long as other well performing cars are looked at too. My take on overdogs are there are only 3 teams in Champcar that I feel my team cannot possibly beat unless things go bad for them (besides Chris at VIR!) lol
  8. Back to the top for the last 2 races we have available.
  9. JSK did a 1:14 last year. I expect the Sahlen Boxster's to be faster.
  10. Boxsters are undervalued, I tried a couple of years ago to get them valued correctly but was shot down on it. If I had to start over again I would absolutely go with the Boxster.
  11. Heres a stock 944 radiator for you. You think this guy is upset he can buy a cheaper radiator now? https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/porsche-radiator-944-924-11543003001#fitment When we built the 2nd 944 we put our back-up used OE radiator in it because I couldn’t justify buying a new one at that price(and I couldn’t afford the points for aftermarket) than bought an E-bay aluminum one as a backup for $175.
  12. VRG is not going to make it. Too many broken parts and too little time. We were really looking forward to driving a new track.
  13. Yes, still working on assembling a new engine in 918. And 959 is still missing a spindle and control arm from our untimely WGI guard rail meeting.
  14. Agree, and that's how we like our racing! We just would have preferred you chasing us. lol
  15. In my 100+ races with Champcar I would say yes. There is nothing written in the BCCR about how that is supposed to be handled, I believe it's entirely up to the race directors discretion.
  16. That's not how that works. I had a discussion with the race director about this and he confirmed that what he did "screwed" us and that they knew it before they did it. They knew the leader was going to pit because they had 3 minutes left before they were going to go over on stint time. I was told the only reason they picked us up was in the interest of safety and gaining control of the field as quickly as possible (which could have easily been done by picking up the 1st car behind the leader). Instead of picking up the front of the field they picked up the tail end. This by-no means should detract from the Pinkies Out win, the team ran a great race and had some lucky FCYs(just like us).
  17. No, nothing. I don’t follow NASCAR so I’ve never heard of a commitment cone. Champcar has (since I’ve been racing with them) referenced the cone in front of pit-in as the “you better be slowed down before that cone”.
  18. We were 10-15 car lengths in front of the leader, they pit during a FCY before the pace car picks them up. The pace car picked us up instead of the car behind the leader.
  19. VRG Saturday Aero car stacked with our fast drivers loses the engine just after moving into 1st place at the 4hr mark. Swap car finds the guard rail before the bus stop, 2hr repair then finishes the race. Sunday Swap car with our B team drivers do a great job keeping us near the front of the pack. Things happened with the pace car that caused us to loose a lap to the leader when they pitted, which in-turn caused my driver to try and play catch-up, which then resulted in our crash with 6 minutes left in the race. Very tough race for us(me). RS4s both days, all used.
  20. Sorry Dave, all full for that one. Our current openings are updated on our initial post.
