  1. "4.4.2. There is NO SUCH THING as a free part, every part of a vehicle has a value." So aluminum coolant surge tanks have value but racing alternators don't? It's inconsistencies like this are frustrating. When I built my car, I went with an aluminum surge tank because the factory plastic one would not longer work due to the roll cage coming through the firewall and going to the strut towers. I picked it because it was a simple shape and simple to mount. There seems to be more of a mechanical advantage to a race alternator than an aluminum coolant surge tank. I know the B
  2. I feel that if it's not in the BCCR then it shouldn't be an enforced rule. The aluminum surge tank being points has been around as long as aluminum flywheels being points and that new ruling (flywheels are open) made it into the BCCR but nothing regarding the surge tanks? Here's an idea. If the tech committee comes up with a new rule or some kind of points adder there is at least 1 full quarter of a calendar years notices to the members, maybe a section that can updated as needed in the BCCR that has new rules or upcoming rules and the dates that they take effect. They did this
  3. So it’s in the 2nd rule book as points?
  4. Are aluminum coolant surge tanks still points? Asking for a friend.
  5. Just going to add a couple of things to my Amazon shopping cart. https://www.amazon.com/Backyard-Foundry-Machinists-Terry-Aspin/dp/1565238656/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=Metal+Melting&qid=1603118652&sr=8-10 https://www.amazon.com/Masters-Propane-Furnace-Crucible-Smelting/dp/B073DRQY98/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Metal+Melting&qid=1603118652&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExRkZOT0Y4SDM0SE9TJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzM2NTI1MlhTWkVHVDkwUzlVTiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDc5NzUxMzc1RlJUS1E5Q1RMMyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb
  6. Regarding fender flares, If I used repurposed material its free as long as I have documented the process? 4.3.2. Materials from your vehicle are permitted to be repurposed into other items for zero points, provided teams retain documented evidence of the process. While tire size is open, tires may not extend beyond the cover of the fenders from the 10 to 2 o’clock positions. Fenders can be stretched/rolled to cover wider tires and flares can even be made, however any added materials used to enlarge the fenders will be charged at the material rate in 4.3.2.
  7. I had a few people reach out to us in the last few weeks for Road America but we are full so I've passed on your teams info.
  8. I use a set up that I pieced together using a rear view mirror from a Cadillac CT6, cable that I purchased from Gentex (PN 625-1343-000), and the camera came off of a Chevrolet Traverse (must be the rear view mirror camera too). It has a very wide field of view and if you flip it up it turns into a regular mirror in case the screen fails.
  9. Sorry this is late but we're back from Gingerman! Daring Greatly Racing had a weekend of ups and downs but we are happy to report that we also had our first finish. This was our 2nd race weekend with this car since we finished it last year and we also had two new wheel to wheel drivers and one that had never been to Gingerman before. Saturday we started towards the front of the field and managed to stay in the top 20 all day but ran into an issue with the fuel cell venting and couldn't get fuel into the car. That took us off track for about 33 minutes before we could fuel the
  10. If anyone is interested in splitting a garage, please let me know.
  11. It should have threaded holes.
