  1. This was our first time to Pittrace. We were disappointed to move our Mosport entry to this event....we were proven to be very wrong in that assessment.. What a facility and track! Challenging course and a great facility around it. The track has to be one of the better ones we've run at. Takes major commitment and awareness to click off a decent lap there, even without any traffic around. I can say every lap was a blast and I hope we go back soon. Many thanks to the Champcar staff and volunteers who make it all happen!
  2. Willing to bet most of these tertiary pace cars are very intently following the "50% under yellow" guidance they receive. Perhaps a little nuance during that discussion would be helpful? Also a black flag and discussion with driver *and team* would make some headway. This shouldn't be hard to do? I had more than one instance in which my pack never caught the field before green was back out. Frustrating for a mid-pack to upper third car, can't imagine if we were hunting for a trophy..
  3. Don't think that's required. Event email just went out and didn't discuss that. Ymmv.
  4. I'm gonna be real surprised if US teams can get across the border. We entered, but anticipate having to move that entry given the current situation. A shame if the event happens and teams just can't get there. Oh well..hope we can get back there next year, we were really looking forward to running this one!
  5. I know we are way out from this event; wondering if there's going to be a practice day Friday or not for travel/planning purposes

  7. This might be helpful.. https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecId=12055&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=RQP705005&gclid=Cj0KCQjw5rbsBRCFARIsAGEYRwelPBcLVbC0z8HlTU_8XqGj6DpgETXZ2W6De_beYidoa_CFp0fOz70aAtBgEALw_wcB
  8. Most bearing failures actually occur due to cap stretch (several causes, one is over-rev) or poor install as opposed to oiling issues as referenced in posts above. Had a sneaking suspicion when you posted up here that something out of the ordinary happened as opposed to bad oil/breakdown. Conitinuing to run after the damaging event looks to have lunched the rest of the engine. Bummer...
  9. That time we did all 3 configurations in one weekend was fun!
  10. @vtjballeng Not on you to let the membership know what Champcar is doing, that's on Champcar. You know, even just a blurb in a post saying "Champcar is working on improving safety & pit marshalling via cheap/affordable onboard device." would have done a lot of good. Not hard and would, IMHO, eliminate this pitchfork brigade. I for one think it's pretty damn cool we will be test bed/early adopter for something that can be so helpful for a variety of racers/officials in all kinds of amateur series..
  11. Communication like this, up front, would help quell the pitchforks....
  12. Could do a lot by not adding costs of entry at every turn. Between the amount of "free" stuff and now adding mandatory 'driver aids' that cost real $$ per event is not gonna make it any easier........
  13. We run one of these on a 2.2 toyota 4 cyl and it was tough to hear on track at Gingerman with the exhaust exiting just past passenger door... https://www.amazon.com/MagnaFlow-Exhaust-Products-10416-Muffler/dp/B000COTCI0
