  1. I apologize for my rant. Just texted with a friend who was there. Said there was a bad crash at 7:50 and combined with the fog, RA management called for the race to end at 8:00. Makes sense. Been searching here and on FB since 8:30 and could find nothing about the race. Sorry
  2. No, I wasn't there. No I am sure I do not know all the details. But. If I paid for a ride in one of the cars racing today, and didn't get to drive my stint because they shortened the race by the two hours, especially after the extended red flag, I would be pretty pissed. I own my teams car. My drivers pay me in advance to drive. They spend lots of money to get to the race. Hotels, air fare, gas, food. I buy the entry fee, I buy tires, I buy Gas, I buy the consumables. I cannot always reimburse them when the car breaks and they don't get to drive. I do what I can for them because that is the right thing to do. Half off maybe for the next race, if I can. I have even been able to give them a ride for free to make it up to them. I usually drive last so they have a better chance to get their stints in. So, I believe there must be a pretty compelling reason to end it early. I hope so.
  3. 205/50/15 in the past but changing to 225/45/15 rears and 245/40/15 fronts
  4. So, I need to use the Willwood 2-piece rotors because they are ventalated from the inside. The stock 11" rotors are ventilated from the outside. Why? Who knows. But its hard to cool rotors when the vent holes are on the wrong side That said, what points will I take for using rotors and hats that are outside of the 2x rule? Besides the 5 points per side for the calipers
  5. Have always been ready as I pull up with the band exposed. This is a non issue in my opinion.
  6. I liked Race Monitor. Race Hero, IMHO, is only better due to its ability to track the driver in the car, which unfortunately does not work with Chumpcar. It often doesn't work correctly though.
  7. Did a three way ownership of a boat with my Father and Brother. Was OK. Lasted 3-4 years I think. But I bought Stella, and did the prep, and our small group of drivers pay per event depending on who is driving. Seams to work for us. One guy, Jeff, has really stepped up and has helped a ton, spending time and money to help out. Plus he helped to remove all that heavy undercoating!!!!
  8. Getting ready to install the SPA system in the new car. I have three nozzles. I had one mounted over my right shoulder on the main roll bar hoop. One mounted just below the mirror, and one in the center of the engine compartment on the fire wall. Figured the driver needs two nozzles in front and behind. Was thinking to mount the engine nozzle on the right side of the engine near the fuel lines, fuel rail, and pressure regulator. What opinions do you all have?
  9. Tried to send my volunteering form on line tonight. it Is not working for me. What Email address should I use to volunteer for Races?
  10. Went to the RVA store, but the Door panel numbers do not seam to be available. Are they, or will they still be available with the car number printed on them?
  11. Who dis is? Don't think I have not thought about a 914 Champcar. For those that don't know me, the silver one became the Street/Autocross/Track car.
  12. Stripped. Whew. Now to make it Stronger, faster, better!
  13. Well, the old girl has gone off to the crusher. After four 24 hour Lemons races, years of Nelson Ledges track bitch duties, then being revived for three seasons of Chump/Champcar, she succumbed to a test day shunt at Pittrace three weeks ago. She gave all she could to donate to the newly acquired Stella 2.0 1995 VW Golf. Team Junk Player Special lives on. The livery will remain as JPS since the new Golf is also black. Now its just work every day for the next 6 months to have Stella 2.0 ready to be unveiled at Watkins Glen in May.
  14. In on the price for the Indy race. Planning on racing the new Better, Faster, Stronger Stella 2.0. Stella has given all she could!
  15. Is there a specific date that Indy will be open to register?
