  1. https://www.autosportlabs.com/active-aero-with-racecapturepro/ This is a real old post, I am assuming with their latest hardware this would be pretty straight forward
  2. 24' Trailer - 5,000 axles, weight distribution hitch 14.5' car 8' built in shelving Car in backwards to pull a little weight off the hitch
  3. We have a NRG 2.5, have found it to be reliable and easy to use.
  4. I am trying hard not to let my crude teenage humor shine through, but I will point out that clearance between the tailgate and the electric jack is directly proportional to how much extension you have from your ball(s). Fortunately the load leveler hitch system I have provides adequate extension.
  5. Not very solid logic, but by spending a little bit of money on a new electric tongue jack and some paint for the race trailer I was distracted away from spending lots of money on the race car.
  6. Fortunately megasquirt (at least the version we run) has a fuel pump relay signal output. If it didn't I would use the oil pressure switch method as I have not interest in having a fuel pump running if the engine isn't running.
  7. Thank you for your efforts on the front lines! Your first hand accounts are sobering and worse yet, you and your colleagues are also short critical supplies to stay safe yourselves and short on the equipment required to save lives. While I anxiously await a chance to get in a race car again, it is definitely secondary to our current reality. Good luck and stay safe!
  8. In an effort to support social distancing I spent a fair amount of time in the garage this weekend in hopes that Road America will go on as planned. - Pulled brake booster, master cylinder and all 4 calipers and inspected in hopes of identifying brake issues present at last race. - Pulled valve cover gasket to address leak - Tightened some fittings on trans cooler to address a leak - Removed alternator which had a cracked housing case - Took measurements for a muffler upgrade -
  9. My champfastic solution was to use and old metal container from pre-mix chainsaw fuel. Cylindrical container so easy to band clamp to something. https://www.lowes.com/pd/TRUFUEL-50-1-32-oz-Pre-Blended-2-Cycle-Fuel/1001840674?cm_mmc=shp-_-c-_-prd-_-sol-_-google-_-lia-_-154-_-lubricants-_-1001840674-_-0&store_code=2545&placeholder=null&gclid=Cj0KCQjwu6fzBRC6ARIsAJUwa2SqvsRJMNl_PEHZ3W6Uv6ro_uXAhxXGl8IXrtvTPCktEZXICqbkV7YaArELEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  10. We went with the OMP HTE-R XL and it is still tight in my thighs / hips although that can be my body composition as used to mountain bike race.
  11. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O8B7VO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Have used this pump for at least 5 years, probably 8 to 10 race weekends that needed the cool suits.
  12. @hcsi99 your interior and roll cage grey paint looks great! What paint and process did you use?
  13. We have a spring loaded rod for our latch system and then also added a bright blaze orange strap loop that makes removing the net quicker and easier. In a virgin state the spring loaded pins are easy to actuate by just grabbing the little finger purchase lever, we wanted to add a grab strap to provide some leverage should an accident cause any binding of the pins into the roll cage brackets. Part of our pit out routine is to velcro the grab strap to A-pillar rollcage tube so in theory we could find it in a vision impaired state. Happy to have not yet needed to test it in an emergency situation.
  14. Isn't it even easier than just gutting the cats? Can't you just weld a tube in place of the cats? The rule says: 4.7.4. Exhaust systems downstream of the header/exhaust manifold (from the collector back) are open and do not count towards total points The collector is the portion of an exhaust where multiple flow paths converge to one. Wouldn't that indicate that if there is a cat in an exhaust manifold (which would be downstream of the collector) that a cat could be replaced with a tube for zero points?
