    Anyone have Aero questions?

    Excellent info, Thank you. Most of the headlights are covered. Just one side is open for the air filer, and it's boxed in to create high pressure there. Is that causing more harm than good? Moving the Antenna is easy. Not sure if nets are allowed on the passenger side, Lexan is not. Is there a way to make a deflector that will kick air around the opening without causing too much turbulence/drag?

    Reground Camshafts

    So regrinds are points. As they should be, since not all engines can you a regrind easily or without changing other parts.

    He's not new to this and he's no dummy either. Listen to him he speaks the truth. Look at all of the manufacturer built.cars in JGTC, Super GT, ALMS, and WEC. Many of them sport ducting to vent heat exchanger air up out the hood.

    Yep, we've got similar P/W of a well setup 1.8 Miata. It'll turn a pretty decent lap, especially if we can get a tow from something fast enough not to turn itself into a rolling road block in the twisty bits.

    Probably 110-120. We'll find out this spring.

    Agree If only we had another 50 whp to work with we might be able to give you a run for your money.

    Aerodynamically where do we go next? Home made diffuser? Side skirts? Both? Have a bottom mount single element wing that will be replacing the Lexan rear lip. We are power limited, and maximizing cornering speed has so far proven the only way to be fast. The car is relatively stable now, but I know we're leaving grip on the table. Will skirts and a diffuser held reduce drag and increase total downforce enough to be worth the time investment? Thanks.
  8. Broken flywheel bolts, on a 2 race old engine, destroying the crank. Causing our only DNF. pulled crank, repaired and reassembled. Then, a weak injector nuked a piston in said engine the next race. We dumped the spare in and still finished. We've also had rental drivers investigate a tire wall, and spend 20 minutes buried in kitty litter. Along with random clutch (bad slave), brake (leaking piston), fuel (leaking sender), alternator (the little bolts holding the alternator together fell out) and sensor (TPS decided it would drop out randomly above 4.5K rpm) issues are our big ones. So far it's never been the same thing twice.

    Teach me about leak down tests

    I try to test a 100, then at 50 psi. If it fails at 100, you have a big problem. On a street car, anything above 15% leakage is a failure to me.

    Petition proposition- Flywheels?

    And replace the bolts regularly. Even steel flywheels. Fatigue failed flywheel bolts knocked us out of Nelson Ledges last year. They had been re-used 1 too many times.

    New fender ruling from TAC section

    If it's the dual density stuff, it'll be stiffer and better protection than any plastic or metal flare. And since it's a saftey rule, and roll bar padding is a saftey item for driver protection it'll obviously have to be 0 points.

    2019 Official Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta 14-Hour

    Nelson Ledges? I had problems with RH there, but it's worked great everywhere else. I think the cell service there was just really really bad. I was under the same impression, but have since heard otherwise. The secret handshake strikes again.

    New Team, New Car

    Good luck with the platform. It has a lot of pluses and minuses. I've been running S Chassis' in different forms of racing for over a decade. It's a great platform, but due to some rules in this league, there are some things that can/can't be done. You can PM me if you've got questions. Nice looking coupe. I miss mine. We currently campaign a S13 hatch.
