  1. 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.
  2. @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.
  3. Experienced, consistent, and fast driver (that's me) looking for a ride at Watkins Glen. Will bring a good attitude. good data, and coaching to your team. Happy to wrench and lug fuel. I've done a few of these:
  4. We turned fast laps while it lasted, with solid improvement over last year. Call it speed creep.
  5. We had a good run with the level of improved paced we hoped for. Until our subframe tore itself apart around hour 7. Seriously thinking about re-body, as this has been the same car beaten on for 5 years and 5 races a year. Some good running w/ Krispy Cream before that, while I was in the car. Thanks for my drafters. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2412457995522033&id=503893943045124
  6. I started the trend of these graphs. If you're going to do it please keep the chart square and include the 1:1 reference line.
  7. While we won't be at Barber, I'll add as a data-point that we would sell 2 stints to this race at $1300 if we were going. We do like to see more on track experience, at least open passing, before we take on drivers. I've referred potential drivers to another team to have them join us after they've got a race or two under their belt.
  8. We'll be there! No Friday practice. Another organization has the track. Last year 50 cars took the green, so at least that many. The limit for number of cars per mile has disappeared from the rule-book.
  9. The clarifications I'm seeking regard how Champcar will determine year-end championship (points) winners. Will Champcar break out points by class? This seems necessary to award Mazda contingencies, which do specify that they are for class. If Champcar publishes points by class, will they use overall finishing position or within class? This could heavily skew the results based on out-of-class racing (determining Mazda winners by BMW attendance). Will Champcar consider the Mazda minimum 4 races? If not, it will reduce payouts and skew results. Will Champcar weight Sonoma in the above? If so, east coast teams will be required to tow cross country to win any payout.
  10. Do not install a seat back brace on a composite seat. Seat back braces are now explicitly banned at higher levels of competition. If your FIA seat is expired it's time to get a new sticker.
  11. This thing is still sitting in my garage. Would entertain a seriously low offer.
  12. or Champcar officials with inconsistent enforcement that contradicts their own rulebook? You decide. on Sunday morning at Pittsburgh our team received a black flag stop and go penalty for "bump drafting". Except we hadn't bumped anyone! It was explained to us that if it looks close, it's too close. No drafting allowed. As a Miata, this only makes it more difficult to execute passes and simply required us to be more aggressive about taking away apexes under braking. Gone was any incentive to buddy up and play nice. Booo.
  13. That was mine, I even put a Sparrow Speed sticker on it! I was happy to see your car back on track if only for awhile. Then I saw 2.5 motors in your pits... Someone else's Miata team owes me a yellow fuel line disconnect tool as well...
