  1. If its an electronic gauge I would think it could just be minor variance in the signal due to other things happening at those two moments. If its a mechanical gauge then start with questions like is the oil level too high? Too much oil can cause the crank to whip up the oil.
  2. Why bother with 4 wheel steering? Unless you are doing some creative work to simulate a longer wheel base then I don't see the point. AWD is likely not going to be much of a performance advantage unless it's very wet. I think something along the lines of a Honda B series or K series FWD with a good diff, suspension and brakes would be killer.
  3. Being in Canada where there is absolutely zero chance of legally driving a race car on the street I still can't get over hearing stories of going for a drive to check the car over or bed in brakes. I am very jealous.
  4. A gurney flap in front of the venting wouldn’t be a bad idea.
  5. Keep in mind that unless it’s a tube and fin style, you will never be able to confidentially clean a blown engine out of a cooler. Beware of used ones and if there is metal in your oil you may want to toss yours.
  6. The last thing you want is the splitter touching the ground and cutting airflow under the car. Between that and off track excursions, a bit higher is better than too low.
  7. We run Motul gear 300 and haven’t blown anything up.
  8. Any idea what distribution looks like in Canada?
  9. Yeah. I think I need to pump it out with the in tank pump and see how much is left.
  10. Car is an EK chassis Honda Civic. We already have a float switch about 2/3 of the way up the surge tank that triggers a light on the dash.
  11. Currently having issues getting 2hrs out of our tank and would prefer not to spend on a cell if possible. at the moment, we get about 1:40 to 1:55 depending on the track with a stock tank and a 2L surge tank. For those of you that have run a similar setup and added a hydramat, what kind of improvement did you see? Is it only really an advantage for those who don’t have a surge tank?
  12. Based on that recap and watching on Race Monitor all weekend it looked like a hell of a great race. Congrats on the win Redcow and Higgy.
  13. What tires were they running on? It is definitely a testament to how good the "200" TW tires are.
  14. If you are running fans and don't need high pressure air then you should draw air from somewhere that has cool air and is not going to pick up junk.
  15. Which would at least line up with what everyone else is paying for adding camber through additional parts.
  16. Why are other cars getting charged 20 points per axle to change camber and this is ruled at 10points? How is this not a camber changing apparatus? I guess I am going to re-name my camber adjusting upper A arms a "shortened Ball joint"
  17. Perfect. We definitely needed more model specific rules.
  18. I was welding an oil pan together and after cleaning with brake cleaner I hadn't noticed that some was caught in a seam. Almost knocked me right on my butt when I heated it up. I definitely lost a year or two off my life. Not doing that again.
  19. That is an air dam. These rules and interpretations of rules are just getting silly. The march to EC continues...
  20. Cause I haven't seen one small enough to meet our rules that has a cap. That one you posted is way too big.
  21. The issue seems to be heat. There are options to run an external coil that could help. I played around with the idea of mounting a large CPU heatsink on the housing and even considered a CPU fan running on the heatsink. I ended up ditching it all and just going COP at the end so that I could remove a common weak point.
  22. I wish this was the case and you could just build a car using the rule book. The first post already shows the intention to add points despite the rule book just saying Wing = 10pts.
  23. I don't see why not. There are no rules about what you build your splitter with or what shape it is. As to the size. They look bigger than they are. They are 2.5" deep, 6" wide.
  24. I actually just built some DIY with a hammer and ignorance. The only place I could fit them was ducting almost straight at the tire. I was hoping to have them vent inboard of the tire to get airflow to the CV/brake etc but about half is hitting the tire. Do you think I will still see a benifit?
