    Petition proposition- Flywheels?

    Does anyone have any experience with a dual mass flywheel and endurance racing? Asking for a friend...
  2. If your rig has a refrigerator and a nice generator I think your beer might be colder, and I'm okay with that.
  3. Someone brought up in another thread about a CTS build so I figured I would share. Just to get a few things out of the way, I know this car is heavy, I know it start out at 530 points, I know it don't have many options as far as shocks go, I know it's an odd ball build. Why did I do this? It's not a BMW #1, and it's what I know #2. I've worked for a Cadillac dealer for 15 years and have been managing the service department for the last 3. I rented a seat in Thing 3PO with Justin Lee and Thing 3 Racing last year and I've been hooked ever since. I sold my 2014 Camaro SS 1LE and bought a rusted out 2003 Cadillac CTS off of Craigslist for $850 and a new car trailer. I've been working on this car for just under a year now and for having rotator cuff surgery in November I feel like I've gotten a lot done. You can follow me on Facebook too: https://www.facebook.com/Daring-Greatly-Racing-137231636746199/ More post to come tomorrow!
  4. Most of the brake lines are done, but I forget to take pictures before I put the car away so I will finish those up next weekend and take pictures. This weekend I was able to strip all the spare body panels I wanted off of the parts car. I still need to strip off the suspension stuff that I'd like to keep for spares as well. Also finally got my Class D Road Racing license in iRacing.

    Fuel cell rule change

    Is the 6"x9" fire proof lexan site window still going to be acceptable? I didn't see any mention of this in the updated BCCR.

    Fuel cell rule change

    Getting back on topic, I found a place that sells 12" x 12" sheets of Polycarbonate that meets the requirements. The Spec sheets match the data sheets of the Lexan stuff that @red0 posted about before. https://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?sku=43425

    Sebring today

    I'm 2.5 years into my build and it just became a roller. 😥 I've had a lot of good ideas inspired by beer! I have a very large collection of brewery stickers that I'm thinking of installing on the inside roof of the car, but I'm not sure I want all the weight that high up. The garage is attached to the house, so I don't have far to stumble into bed.

    Around Halloween we had this on tap in the garage. Now we are drinking this.

    Tech Response time

    I read pages and pages of how one person interprets one rule and how another person interprets the same rule another way. Instead of starting a thread that gets multiple responses that in the end mean nothing other than opinion I figured I’d go the actual people that are going to say yes or no. Im not here to stir the pot. I believe the forum is a great source of discussion and opinion but not always a great or quick source of factual answers. Lately it’s been a great source of entertainment.

    Tech Response time

    The forum is a good source for info, but I’m not looking for opinion, I’m looking for actually clarification. For all I know my emails are sitting in Techs spam folder.

    Tech Response time

    Same one I PM’d you about a few weeks ago. I even sent another email last week with and added Mike Chisek, no response.

    Over a month and no response.
  15. After two hours on and off of driving for practice then qualifying that was the first time I had done that. This is the first race I've done in a few months and was very surprised at the turn out, or lack there of.
  16. A little "help" arrived this weekend. Beer and I got some stuff done! Front subframe and suspension installed!
  17. All the body panels are back on the car, headlights, tail lights are in, rear subframe installed, pedals are installed, and some radiant heat shielding has been installed. We are working on assembling the front subframe and suspension so that we can get some wheels and tires on the car. Fuel cell cage is on the drawing board and will be started on soon.
