  1. What's the latest and greatest way to achieve live stream?
  2. @Bill Strong wasn't there a list somewhere that had all the available numbers?
  3. We still have 1 seat open for Gingerman and two seats open for Road America in October. We've rethought our prices a bit (sorry, still new at this renting thing). PM me if interested!
  4. There is another layer of metal on top of the fuel cell metal box and the top off the cell is boxed in.
  5. We ended up mounting ours between the rear strut tower right above the rear sub-frame. This required removing the metal that separates the back seat from the trunk. We did this before all the new fuel cell rules came out but we still managed to enclose everything in metal including all lines and hoses. We weight distribution front to rear is very close to 50/50 with a full tank and driver.
  6. We use this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BECQBPK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  7. Like a standard 5th generation Camaro SS, not the best track car, but put the 1LE package on there with the better shocks, 285's all the way around, special transmission gearing, different fuel pickups in the tank and a 3:91 rear end, that car gets around the track much better but has the same engine as a standard SS.

  10. We did some testing laps this past week and are very pleased with our results. We took the car to Gingerman for two different test nights. The first was on set of RS4s that we had around 10 race hours on and the second was with a set of tires that had only been used for one test day last year. We added spring rubbers to our factory cut springs to increase spring rate, tuned the new engine to run better at race temps, and added a fuel flow gauge to get a better handle on our fuel consumption. It was 75 degrees on the first test night and we managed to run 1:50's most of the evening with my fastest time being 1:50.00. My quickest lap during the race last year was a 1:51.1, so I was very happy with the new time on old tires. Alex and I went back Monday night for another test with an air temp around 90 degrees and lots of sunshine. This time we put on a set of RS4s that had only been used for a test day. Alex was in the first run group and I ran in the second so we would do quick driver changes in the pits between sessions. Our lap times in the first session continued to be in the 1:50's with a track temp the same as the surface of the sun. As the evening went on and the sun started to go down the times just kept dropping. Alex finished the day with a 1:48.4 with the sun just starting to go below the horizon. We didn't have enough fuel to run the last session but I feel I could have been close to his time or faster. I Managed a 1:49.4 to beet his previous session time of a 1:49.5 about an hour before he ran his 1:48. So when it was all said and done Alex ended up improving 2.1 seconds over his best lap time last year and I improved 1.7 seconds over my best time last year. I'm excited to get Chris in the car since he was our fastest driver last year with a 1:49.7 to see how much time he can take off. To sum things up, the car ran great! We're running RedLine 30 weight race oil and didn't see oil temps over 265 in 90 degree weather. The tune seemed to improve the overall driveability of the car. It now pulling all the way to red line and doesn't pulling as much timing at race temps letting the engine run cooler. Our fuel flow sensor worked great as long as you enter the correct amount of fuel you put in the tank 😒. We ran out of fuel just after crossing the start finish line and just coasted into the pit lane with the engine no longer running. The fuel flow meter said we had 1.0 gallons left at that time. I figured I calculated incorrectly when added fuel to a tank that already had some fuel in it (didn't feel like taking my shoes off after I ran out of fingers when calculating). With the tank for sure empty, we added 10 gallons, ran it on track down to .2 gallons on the gauge and didn't run out. It's looking like we have a full driver line up for Gingerman, but still need 3 drivers for Indy and 2 for Road America. I posted a quick video of Alex starting his first flying lap of the night on Monday.
  11. I hosted a practice session starting at 7:00pm CT for anyone that want to join. The session is called Champcar at Watkins Glen Practice.
