  1. Eh. I forget off hand. It's just running a little dinky stock fuel sock. If I come across a reason to pull it out before nelson, I'll let you know for sure.
  2. I use 2 Bosch 69481 for my lifts in my e30. But I'd like to explore external pumps/hydramat moving forward.
  3. We have the same Design surge tank...now I wanna spend 4hours flipping mine and rerouting the lines...
  4. Shift fork seal or output seal? Both aren't bad to replace with the engine+trans in the car.
  5. New tail lights & mounted cooling fan for driver face. Working with Aluminium flashing? I figured you wanted to bleed today!
  6. Oh dear....that’s why I have come to enjoy knowing every nook and cranny of the racecar.
  7. Cleaning the travel tool boxes. Then going to work on air ducting for driver face cooling.
  8. Getting bored. Prepping and lightening the back up chassis for a cage. Is this how two car teams get started?
  9. How'd they finish up? Lexington over the lenses?
  10. I like the idea of flipping a switch and chatting. Then flipping back at the next opportunity for a reply. I will I'll say that I bought the push button from Sampson. I used the steering wheel mount. And it failed in one race. The wire used is super tiny (26ga?!?). I will be honest and say I did not strain relief as you state in the video. But please don't use such a small wire (if possible?) Expect an idiot is installing your HW (me!). So we gutted the button and connector and used soldered in 22ga wire and filled the button cavity with silicon sealant. We now use a fixed mount button located behind the shifter. We moved it there due to different some drivers using different steering wheels and fixed seat back(6' &220 vs 5'6" 140lbs). We have yet so test due to.........reasons.........
  11. While installing a new fire bottle yesterday, I also inspected the synflex lines running all over the car. The first thing I noticed was it appeared my old tank had a extremely tiny leak and the hose just leaving the bottle had some caked up junk in it. I cut and removed that bit. I then blew into the system to see if it was free flowing....it was not. I gutted the whole system and checked every single line (some of which was legacy on the car before I got it, but some of it was done by me before I knew any better). Multiple lines were not cut properly and looked like crap. Finally, one of the nozzles did not flow at all when i blew into it! I'm going to soak the clogged nozzle in alcohol or something and report back...=> soaked in mineral spirits = did not clear the clog...soaked in denatured alcohol = did not clear the clog. I cut, cleaned and checked every line and then blew into the complete system at the point where extinguishent leaves the bottle and it was free flowing. I used a quality hose cutter and a straight pick to open up the line post cutting. cutter = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002NYB6O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Pick = https://www.amazon.com/GearWrench-84000D-Hook-Pick-Set/dp/B002EYI19M/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=gearwrench+pick&qid=1583147543&sr=8-5 Please take 30min of time and perform a check of everything AFTER the bottle...
  12. Some say I don’t know how a white board works...
  13. I beleive so. The panel is still legacy before installing RCP. Right now I’ve just about got RCP to be a dash and I finally trust the sensor calibrations. I got plans man...plans! This is all new to me (scripting + Pi) so I’m just taking it slow.
  14. The blue light is brakes (same circuit as the actual brake lights, meant to be picked up by the gopro).
