  1. Had a great time at Road America. Car ran great. We were nursing a alternator issue mostly all day, cutting in and out. Near the end of the day our battery discharged to a dangerous level. We stopped to change batteries and continue. With about an hour left we lost 4th gear. Not a huge issue. And on the last lap we lost 5th. Unfortunately the extra set of spare brake pads did not arrive in time for this race so we did not have enough pads to continue Saturday safely. And knowing we were going to have a braking issue we decided to take our class win and P8 finish and re-group for the glen. Thanks to the champcar staff for another great event. See you all at the next one.
  2. Should we bring screech? That way Jer will have something to take away from the weekend.
  3. Don’t worry about finding us, we’ll find you.
  4. Good thing for you. The Mopar team is coming and has your back!
  5. Besides being grey. In a 1st Gen you won’t have the fuel capacity
  6. But it’s not the dark side, your on the dark side.
  7. Clearly the turbo pt cruiser is the one to run in champ. Modern-ish turbo technology. Packs enough fuel. Relatively light weight, easy to find parts.
  8. Since DSM and turbo dodges are like brothers in some regards I might be able to help. I am running the 2.4 turbo lite motor in my current car. I have went from a slightly bigger rad to a “biggest I could fit rad” to aid in cooling and we’re running lower than stock boost! Went from a 10,000 btu oil cooler to a 28,000 btu oil cooler to aid in temps. as well. I think i have it nailed down to running approx. 230-240 oil temps and 195-200 water temps in pretty hot weather with the upgrades now and running a euro Mobil 1 blend 5w-40 oil.
  9. Not yet. There are three different types of valve covers for late 2.4 heads. Aluminum, composite and a quasi turbo valve cover that doesn’t say turbo. so unless we know which one, it’s a guess. But you are correct some are baffled well and others not so much.
  10. I went a different way with my current car. I have a access hatch that I open up to see my ATL discriminator valve. Once I see the valve filling up I know I am full. The valve is set as low as possible to th fill plate to ensure I don’t fill up the fill neck. I went this way because I know one day this will be a rule. With this method I don’t really have any spills and I have a visual indication of when I am nearing full.
  11. Build cost is relevant because if the price of entry is to high or unfavourable new blood will not enter the series. If you stop attracting new teams the series will not grow. It it may not matter in the rules per say. But it matters to the series as a whole.
  12. Went to the u pull to get a fender. It was a nice 15 degrees F. It was $10 fender day. Kind of crappy I had to chip it out of the ice. You southern folk have it easy.
  13. Is there a catalog page or any other info that lists all the Bilstein cartridge shocks that are available? Asking for a friend.
  14. I have for sale a couple of neon parts. Buyer can reach me through pms. 1. All motor mike intake manifold (AMM fab). Used for 2.0/2.4 dohc engines. Bolt pattern is for 95-2001 heads. But can be adapted to later styles. Probably the best performing intake manifold. No more power drop off near the end of the rev range. Double digit gains are very real with this piece. Asking $475 USD + shipping 2. Mad dog sts w/rod brakes. Short throw shifter with rod brakes. Pretty much a must have if your tracking a t350 to keep over zealous drivers from shifting like a gorilla and punching out the synchro keys. The brakes prevent over extending the shift lever. This item is brand new never used. Asking $130USD + shipping.
  15. Kind of glad I don’t have a swap car anymore, sheesh. Lol
  16. So I am starting a little side project for my war wagon. I have found a 60 quart cooler that will fit underneath my wagon next to the air tank. I was thinking about making a cool shirt box for the pits. I am am getting hung up on where to find the fittings that our shirts use. Anyone know the trade name for them or a good place to buy them?
  17. This. On my beloved neon oil pressure only activated above a certain RPM. I also set the alarm above a cut out point that would kill the engine. It is important to be able to log what your real running oil pressure is before just picking an arbitrary number. We used a ms3pro ecu and an AIM dash. if you did have a good oil leak it could save an engine.
