  1. Right. I only pulled from the google doc earlier in the thread so just looking at entries and champ eligible vs. not. Also, I'm just hacking this together during lulls at work. So if something looks off, don't anyone freak out. I'm just some schmuck having a slow day at work, none of this is official.
  2. I totally get it. Being on the board doesn't make data magically appear. If it doesn't exist, it doesn't exist. Same with digital log books, awesome idea. I always thought it would be nice to file your tech sheet/log book when you register for an event online. Maybe fill it out the first time each year, then simply have the option to update for each subsequent event. I do think actual log books should still be required at tech, and perhaps tech has a laptop to update as needed. I'm not a developer, but I can imagine implementing some of these things could be a bit tricky. And yes, I did a count of the makes. @Huggy did a sum of all "attended" races for those makes. Correct me if I'm wrong Huggy...thats at least how I got those numbers.
  3. I do wish we had the swap data. I would be very interested to see what percentage of cars that are even running swaps, and the comparison of lap times, finishes, DNF's, etc. vs. non-swapped cars. There's a lot of "noise" about swaps, the formula, blah blah blah.....With hard data, we could put those threads to bed right? Should that be green font?
  4. This is interesting...number and percent Championship Eligible by make. I pulled and pivoted the data from the google doc. Go Orange Yeller Revival! Holding it down for the Caddy's!

    The 8's at VIR.....

    And the shorts of whoever was in that Integra! They were either hyper alert or extremely lucky to not get cleaned out there.

    Its a good read. I like the last point too. I've certainly met a lot of good people in the short time I've been involved.

    The turbo should bump you to B class though, no? It bumped a 1.6 Miata to B at Thompson this year.

    VIR North was probably the longest, and some elevation changes. Clear communication on every part of the track. Road America might require a better antenna, but I don't think they are that much more expensive. I think you could have reasonable success though. You may have some trouble in the carousel and the kink. I did buy a couple Baofeng radios off Amazon for crew members ,and programmed them to the channels included with my purchase from Sampson. I do agree with his comment on the mic though. A bad mic is just as, if not more frustrating than no mic. Its a big nut to spend, I know. But the system I got could not have been easier to set up, it was literally plug and play. In less than an hour we were driving around my neighborhood pretending we were in Smokey and the Bandit (hence the Snowman handle).

    I started here - https://www.sampsonracing.com/The-Expert-5watt-Package-for-2way-driver-to-crew-p/the-expert.htm It's on sale for $500. We use this with an antenna ($57) and get excellent coverage on track. Good service too. I think they give a ChampCar discount too.
  12. Is that right, Fender flares are going to be about 4pts (assuming I'm building a Miata)? We get dinged for material on fender flares? Sorry, I've been away for a while and trying to catch up on the forum happenings.

    Fire Suppression, what ya got

    Yeah, crazy. Never thought that could be a problem. I certainly learned a lot. Def steel for my next build too.

    I would suggest good solid lines...steel perhaps. The rubber coated soft aluminum lines on our system melted and shattered very quickly in our fire. So when my brother pulled the handle, nothing happened. He was burned and we lost the car.
