  1. That would have been more than a bump. That Miata looks like a tubbed dragster once it got back on all 4.
  2. My brother in law was racing with us last night too (his first ever iRacing race with other cars on track) he said the exact same thing about 6th gear.
  3. Fun face! I started 8th then got into the back of someone about half way through the race in going in to turn 3 and popped the radiator. I made it through the bus stop and was able to get up to a fair speed before the engine let go with a water temp of 325 degrees. I costed in neutral into the pits, used my reset and installed some fuel. I came out 17th but made it back up to 11th place. I was by myself for the rest of the race until the last few laps I was able to catch 9th and 10th place. The 9th place car had a moment on the last lap in turn 1 and spun and that let me get even closer to the 10th place car. I got a better run on him going through the bus stop and just made the pass before crossing the finish line finishing 9th. If was nice racing with you all as always. Lee
  4. Here is a good solution if you're looking to also run a surge tank and are limited on space. Their Enduro cells are FIA FT3 certified. http://www.radiumauto.com/Fuel-Cell-with-FCST-P1494.aspx
  5. I got the radiator, fans, and hoses installed this weekend and started planning for the fuel cell install. I was going to reuse the factory tank and attempt to solve the fuel starvation issues that come with a saddle tank using hydra mat and a surge tank, but it seemed that the cost to do this was going to be almost as much as my Radium Engineering fuel cell with build in surge tank. I'm going grind and weld on a freshly pained interior, but I have more paint so no big deal. I managed to fix a few things that I did wrong when reinstalling the suspension, like installing rear sway bar links in the wrong direction, and replacing a few bolts that were questionable with the new correct bolt. I also have been fighting brake fluid leaks at all 4 corners where the Goodridge steel braided hoses mount to the hard lines. It turns out the Goodridge lines where not machine correctly. When tightened down the the fitting on the Goodridge line would not hold the flare in tight enough due to there not being enough threads on the Goodridge side of the line. One of our techs took 4 new fittings that go on the hard lines and machined a cone into them to allow better sealing. We had to cut the other fittings off the line, install the machined fittings, and flare the lines again. With no ABS and a much simpler line set up, this all took about an hour and half to correct. I'm happy to report that the fluid leaks are gone. I had reached out to Goodridge and after 2 weeks I heard back from someone that was familiar with the issue, but at that point we had already made the new fittings to correct the problem. Goodridge sent me 4 brass coned washers to put inside their lines to correct the issue.
  6. I worked on stripping some spare parts off of the black car before she gets taken away to the big crusher in the sky. Spare front knuckles, upper and lower control arms, strut mounts, rear upper and lower control arms, knuckles, and rear diff. I also received my number panels from @RVA Graphics & Wraps and have entered our first race, Gingerman August 2019. I will be back working on the fuel system this weekend.
  7. Does anyone have any experience with a dual mass flywheel and endurance racing? Asking for a friend...
  8. If your rig has a refrigerator and a nice generator I think your beer might be colder, and I'm okay with that.
