    Decal Requirements

    You are correct, we did not produce/provide the Maxxis decals.

    Decal Requirements

    The challenge is choosing a material that stays put in 100+mph rain, but doesn't pull the paint off when removing. As such, we chose a 3M material that has decent adhesion, but is classified as temporary, therefore less likely to pull paint off , etc. If they are applied to a clean/dry factory finish, they will stay on during the races, but can be removed after the season without pulling paint. If they are put on over a rattle-can or a paint roller paint job, then they can/will remove some paint when removed, we found our the hard way on our car when we first decided to wrap it. Those hours I spent applying Rustoleum were for naught as that paint pulled right off when affixing decals. Also if the decals are hastily applied last minute in the rain to make the drop of the green flag, they tend not to do as well. I am intrigued by the magnetic board suggestion, but I would hate to be black flagged if my number panel fell off. Maybe we could try some during the next race(s) along with the standard panels and see how they do. Justin

    Official 2018 - Sahlens Champyard Dog at the Glen (Watkins Glen)

    Unfortunately, we will not be at this one as I am recovering from knee surgery and we were thin for this race to start with. Please contact Tyler at the shop if you need anything for this race as I know we have been filling quite a few orders this past week. Good Luck! Justin

    High Temp Thread locker - No, not Bill

    Proof that regardless of topic, a little shade can be thrown.

    High Temp Thread locker - No, not Bill

    That look like an interesting option. I wonder how it would hold up to the higher temps of the brake caliper?

    I agree on giving the faster a little more grunt. I am usually the one on the team that is called into action to free a stuck faster, or make sure what we put on is as tight as it can be. Regarding lights, the link below is what we have been buying from Amazon. Works perfectly if all of your numbers are straight, like 111, not so much on anything else. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71HYaVR4-6L._SL1001_.jpg We bought some of these12V LED rope type lights as well, which turned out to be junk. The flickered for a few minutes than went out. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071WRWJH4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 If anyone finds a good flexible light tape I would be interested as well.

    Morning fellow Champs. We had 3 of the four caliper bolts decide they liked Daytona so much that they removed themselves from the calipers while on track. Our guy swears hey used loctite during re-assembly. We are wondering if anyone has any experience/suggestions on wether we should switch to a high temp thread locker, or what they use to make sure things stay fastened. Thanks in advance for any advice. Justin

    Approved seat adjusters

    http://www.pci-racing.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/SLIDER-KIT-5-456x337.jpg We have this slider in two cars and it works quite well. We go from 6'5" to 5'4" and combined with a back support that can be adjusted during driver changes, it provides a solid base from which to wheel.

    Who knew the answer would be this easy? If they're good enough for the circle of trust, they're good enough for me!

    vinyl wrap question

    Thats a great question. I wouldn't imagine they would take issue with the free advertising, unless it is used in a derogatory way. We have yet to hear from anyone in Hollywood concerning our use of Sgt Shultz.

    vinyl wrap question

    I apologize for the delayed response as I was out of pocket last week. Message sent to Cam Betty. Troy, our E36 used 225.78 sq/ft and the E30 used 208.6 sq/ft of material. 5x45 may be cutting it kind of close. Justin
