  1. Also You can see the Dates on the Emails , I have had my bases covered for a while
  2. For fun-sies Ill leave this here too
  3. Since this is my car I guess I should add you should look at OEM Pricing for Said 500 Pt 9000 RPM import. Also it makes 200 at the wheels when we had it dyno tuned.
  4. Got Some good Testing in the S2000 while at the AER Event at Watkins Glen (And Its Fast!). Also won the event Overall on Sunday with the mustangs! and 2nd overall with Points for the weekend
  5. Champ has good cars and good racing. At Road Atlanta you guys had a car do 1:37 in the race, Our best time for the weekend with our 302R mustang was 1:34 flat in race trim (1:32 in Qualifying) People that mention speed differential dont realize how fast Champ Cars actually are.
  6. We dont race west sadly, Wouldnt be a big deal to ship
  7. Correct as it use to be 2.5, changed this year
  8. 3 Coolers 20 Points, x2 for 24 hour race
  9. I got two! and a Third on the way haha! I would LOVE if champ made an S197 we could run but thats asking alot. I still feel the S197 is over valued at 550 for the V8 but hard when its a 315 Hp and 3600lb car, But I bet it would be right up there with the top cars and still wouldnt be the fastest.
  10. Why are bushings free in the first place? Seems like OEM bushings are easy to find... https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-suspension-refresh-upgrade-kit-e36-rear-oem-meyle-hd-e36rearkit?ads_cmpid=1586640911&ads_adid=59893888775&ads_matchtype=&ads_network=g&ads_creative=298302526031&utm_term=&ads_targetid=pla-327620319311&utm_campaign=&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=ppc&ttv=2&gclid=CjwKCAiAwojkBRBbEiwAeRcJZBju5c37cwx1kh_PaRoQ5e0C8xc2Z7BLAlORKDyiMM131LopGGz8gBoCauQQAvD_BwE
  11. Well Here is my Fix for the "0 Point Oil cooler" 1. Oil Filter Adapter $50 https://www.mishimoto.com/oil-plate-sandwich-adapter.html?fee=1&fep=2878&gclid=CjwKCAiA_P3jBRAqEiwAZyWWaCVtQnQkhz_ew7X1nbsvtIIR1xaBOSZtffNmqiPjL7IBD0zx5EAMVRoColQQAvD_BwE 2. Fittings, Since the system cant be full hard line has to be both flex and Hard line Looking at $200+ here https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-220290b/overview/ https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-220287b/overview/ 3. Hardline $50 https://www.aeroflowperformance.com/hardline/aluminium-stainless-steel-hard-line/af66-3003-3-4-alloy-fuel-line-19-05mm 4. Fittings for hardline $80 https://www.aeroflowperformance.com/hardline/tube-adapters/af109-12blk 5. Oil filter Relocation Bracket $60 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cvs-ofm61?seid=srese1&cm_mmc=pla-google-_-shopping-_-srese1-_-cvr&gclid=CjwKCAiA_P3jBRAqEiwAZyWWaBPEGvknR9uoHIhG_E7owtQN-Y7X-x-0nzIj4DvSOpsLy_HDlqzJLBoCB4kQAvD_BwE So estimated about $450 Also doing the Math 20 feet of 3/4 inch Hardline has a volume of about 1.8 Quarts, Adding both capacity for cooling and the line itself is cooling.
  12. If coolers were not free this was my suggestion Treating it like pulleys- Pulleys, engine accessory, non-OE: 5 pts for one pulley, 10 pts for multiple pulleys Coolers- Coolers (engine, Trans, diff) , non-OE: 5 pts for one Cooler 10 pts for multiple Coolers. I will gladly give up 1 lap in an 8 hour or 2 In a 24 hour for coolers. Right now Giving up 6 in a 8 and 12 in a 24 is almost insurmountable .
  13. Thanks for more logical thinking - oh, coming from a team that chose a fuel starved car and KNEW they would have to make up laps in order to be competitive. Wow! It CAN be done... Go figure..... The thing is its not a Lap or Two for an Engine Oil cooler its 2 or 4 in a 24. Add in Trans and Diff you at 6 or 12!
  14. I have only ran the S2000 for 2 hours in 40 degree weather so far but I am pretty sure that it does not NEED a cooler but I will like to add one just to keep it safe.
  15. In the end the Rule Book for 2020 will be black and white, coolers or not there are work around for everything. Like mounting an oil filter relocation in the Trunk and running Hard lines to it increasing oil capacity and cooling in the lines itself. 0 Points
  16. I will speak to the build of the car only, The build wasn't to the "spirt of the rules" but was legal in black and white. Anyone could have replicated the engine setup in the car or the car entirely. I took their rulebook and used every loophole I could find to give me an advantage. We had a clear advantage over the field because of this. This year after that they finally closed the loopholes I had used but created new ones. Too add to that I feel for Champ I chose a car that also has multiple advantages in the rule set, But a cooler is not one of them. A cooler will not make the car any faster only cost less to run. But the cheapest way for me to make sure the engine doesn't get damaged was to not run at all! (like we chose for Champ Road Atlanta)
  17. I feel that the VPi is Fair at 500, In my opinion reliability should not be included in the VPI. If it was the S2000 should be 475 because it has a weak diff and needs to be upgraded
  18. I choose a 500 Point car #WeDidntChooseYourCar
  19. The two reasons I pulled out of the race at RA 1. Car was untested so far 2. Didn't have time to come up with a work around oil cooler (re-purpose or Something other) Like I said before I plan to make a 12 an (3/4 inch) Oil filter relocation in the truck. This will cost $500 ish to do and solve my oil cooling problem. Or I could just buy this kit and be done for $100 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-10-Row-AN10-Engine-Oil-Cooler-Black-Filter-Adapter-Kit-For-Japan-Car/352146317696?epid=12016996751&hash=item51fd8e6180:g:qPoAAOSw1JVaIgD2
