  1. Watkins Glen is sold out. https://champcar.org/register/entrantlist.php?eventid=438 There are 25 duplicate entries. More than one team with 4 cars to themselves.
  2. So we have seen the impact and influence of team entries growing. It is now not uncommon so see multiple two car entries at Champcar races. However, this presents an issue at sold out races: is it better to have the series be about teams or about a diversity of entries? Should a team have to wait to enter their fourth or fifth car until later in the registration window? Or are multi car entries exciting and bring a higher level of competition to the series? Should there be a preference in the rulebook or registration process for one or the other?
  3. Virginia, can confirm. A couple years ago Champcar was surprised when we asked to use their printer before driving the racecar home from a race.
  4. Good race for our Miata. We know we had the speed to finish higher had it not been for an unexpected wheel hub change around hour 3 that cost us precious minutes in the pits. Everything went well after that and we were able to claw our way back up.
  5. Had one of the Flagtronics in our car for the VIR race. Easy install. Worked great. None of our drivers looked to it for flagging, instead keeping their eyes up to flagstations. It did excel in the role of pit timer, and the current hardware is a great deal for all the features it can enable the series with going forward.
  6. Great, so our old setup should pass. Let's see if this social media post holds up in tech.
  7. Sent an e-mail to get one in our car again for VIR South 12-hour
  8. Have been happy with my Pyrotect. Held up for >5 years now.
  9. VQ motor: keep quality oil at or below 280, maintain pressure, and you won't have issues. I would not expect a VQ run at 300 to last. Weak link will be [oil shear at the] bearings. Plastic chain guide wear is a high-mileage issue, but not a racing worry.
  10. NOT MY CAR. I know the seller, and I've driven this car around VIR with the old motor. So lemme help out: asking $5,500
  11. We run the RE-71R. They're faster and we need every second. Bring 6, expect to use up 4 every weekend, and happy when we only consume 2.5 Ask Sahlen's how many tires they bring.
  12. @miller184 you may want to look into bracing the master cylinder. I have seen lots of firewall flex in Hondas and a brace has significantly improved the feel in our Miata and Z cars.
