    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    I guess I wasn't clear in this statement: Equal laptime with equal fuel or near equal fuel required to go 1:45-1:50. Then its up to drivers to eeek out extra fuel conservation or not to go two hours.

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    I was aware that the discussion was fuel for points...again its where do you start. How much of the 12 seconds is lost? IMHO truly equal would be laptime based, with fuel being a smaller factor, IMSA is doing a great job with it. I don't think Champcar is that far off since the reinvention of the swap formula.

    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    Where should Balance of Performance be adjusted? Good, Bad and Ugly ran a 2:28 at Sebring, where the 500pt SC300 had a best lap of 2:40. So if I give that D class car 22-25 gallons of fuel where does that leave my 500pt standard? If we trade performance parts for fuel capacity does that equal 12 seconds? Is there a way to give the SC300 enough free parts to cover a 12 second spread in laptime? Petition time is coming!
  4. In cars where pedals were not spaced well for heel and toe I have used the same method but it always costs me time.
  5. Does he even attempt to heel toe? You can more easily get away with this in a rear/mid engine car, but its going to upset balance and more importantly be harder on components.
  6. I think a lot of drivers put to much focus on rev matching too early in the brake zone. WIth the lower effort braking pressures afforded by boosted master cylinders it is hard not to see some variation in brake pressure effectively extending the brake zone. In my experience if I delay my downshift and also reduce number of downshifts I reduce my brake zone by a significant amount. Under-reving downshifts will upset the balance of the car and that is something that I try not to do. Turn 1 at RD ATL is an interesting one, we like most, were downshifting from 5th to 4th. I personally found it difficult with our setup to brake lightly enough to not overslow for the corner while also rev matching enough to not under-rev and upset balance of car at turn in.
  7. What was the corner speed differential? And make speed before next brake zone.?
  8. Full tear downs are not going to happen, nor should they IMHO. The dyno and/or some type of measuring device (s) will solve a majority of the issues. The random dyno is already in place, and the board/TAC has been investigating what tools and procedures should be used to protest suspected violations of the BCCR. I for one will not teardown my motor in impound, it's just not worth it to me and I use junkyard motors.
  9. How far along is the s2k build? Asking for a friend...
  10. I just want to know what happened to the s2000?
