  1. NCM - We moved the car from its paddock spot where the car was slopped rear ward about a degree or two, to the main road about 15 feet over which is more level and it was then able to accept about another gallon. We did have a modified vent, which we've since re-modified prior to Road America. You can't jackup a car and then fuel? I would support this rule but I would also be surprised if someone got black flagged for this as it stands today.
  2. In your testing what did you find? We've gotten nearly a gallon (in our 15 gallon cell) by changing fuel locations in the paddock so that air pockets are relived. 2.5 degrees would trap about gallon on ATL SP122A on paper. More if you push fuel through the vent line. Jack stand location alters rake by a couple degrees (we confirm when we check wing angle) It may "seem" trival, but its the difference between winning a national championship and not could be where the jackstands are placed. On Tuttle we noticed slight differences in the tank angles and asked that tech c
  3. I just sent in this ticket: Can I please get the procedure for inspecting the following:1. Fuel capacity of a fuel cell.2. Fuel capacity of a fuel cell with internal surge tank.3. Fuel capacity of a stock tank. (might not be able to easily check the neck on these)Also:Is the fill neck included in the capacity limits?Will the fuel be measured using something with calibrated graduations, weight, or another method, or multiple methods?Does the stated capacity of the fuel cell matter or only the actual capacity?Would an unmodified stock tank which holds more than the stated capacity, r
  4. This, in addition to @Bill Strong's smiling face, is why we race CCES vs other alphabet soup series.
  5. Over 50 dyno pulls with a new tuner and with our new Ballenger Motorsports Wideband. Wowza! Excited for Road America!
  6. @Bill Strong Can we get links to the 2020 Swap and Tech sheets?
  7. You're already loaded up? You are already way ahead in the race.
  8. Can we please get back to bitching about hot tires? One of my recent favorite lines I've read is "Once you solve your #1 problem, #2 gets a promotion"
  9. Flat floor. There is too much heat under the car for a central exhaust so we made a custom side exhaust and used the quietest muffler that would fit, which happened to be a sport/street muffler. They make a short and a long version, and we have both which we changed depending on the sound limits. There is a 1hp difference at peak between the short and the long and a 1hp difference at peak between the short and no muffler. After we built them we measured out the distance and did dB testing in our cul-de-sac. We are fine at some races and others we are over. For the championshi
  10. If they were to take dB from behind then more than half the field would be over 96dB. I am running the identical muffler on my street miata as my racecar(Its a street muffler) which is many dB quieter than the Spec Miata exhausts other teams run, but because it points out the side at the sound station, I am over dB. I am complying with the intent of the rule, but the arbitrary location of metering is the issue.
  11. I was actually thinking that as well. It was loud AF at the dyno when I was holding intake pipes together for testing.
  12. Terrific! I love surprises. Now do I spend a couple hundred dollars to install a second muffler or waste half of my $350 test day chasing sound again? What's a few hundred dollars when we are dropping thousands on tires that melt like butter.
  13. Still outstanding and some more: 1. How are races scored for championship contenders and under what rules? Tie breakers? Are non-championship contenders included in the "points" for the winner-take-all championship? 2. How are races scored for non-championship contenders and under what rules? 3. Can a championship contender choose to compete in the non-championship "category". 4. How are national championship class points calculated (Mazda Contingency) 5. Are there MOV penalties for championship and non-championship winners? 6. What side of the track will sound be taken?
  14. @Bill Strong @Jer @Chris Huggins @E. Tyler Pedersen @Doc @TAlexander Can you provide info about the rules? 1. How are races scored for championship contenders and under what rules? Tie breakers? 2. How are races scored for non-championship contenders and under what rules? 3. Can a championship contender choose to compete in the non-championship "category". 4. How are national championship class points calculated (Mazda Contingency) 5. Are there MOV penalties for championship and non-championship winners? 6. What side of the track will sound be taken? 7.
