  1. Forgot to update this. Radio worked flawlessly. Audio is nice and clear, even all the way down in the boot at Watkins glen. One of my drivers uses a handheld system on his car and says the audio quality is night and day compared to what he usually uses.
  2. This radio fit like a glove in the stock 3 series dash plastic. Waiting on my mini uhf to bnc adapter to install antenna to test transmitting but seems to be receiving fine without the antenna installed. CM200 programming cable is like $20 on ebay and then you need to get the CPS software to program the channels. Basically just a 16 pin connector on the back of this thing. Pins used from the harness i bought: Pin 2 is Mic Audio pin 3 is PTT pin 7 is ground pin 10 is to ignition 12v pin 16 is to headphone speakers Could easily wire this yourself for way less then $65.. https://www.radiotwoway.com/motorola-hln9457a-16-pin-accessory-connector-kit?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o1&scid=scplp21885&sc_intid=21885&gclid=CjwKCAjwqfDlBRBDEiwAigXUaHpDG_19sGwBZZ9T26NWs5avdBvVhoOVGU0Gusjuc9QmgHzRy9laRRoCgwkQAvD_BwE $5 https://www.ruggedradios.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=189&products_id=406 $5
  3. AAM50RPC9AA1AN 40W Lists at 438-470mhz. Mostly just wanted to know if the two 5 pin connectors that I listed are going to fit into eachother (jumper & harness), but looks like you guys sell a very similar thing if not the same. So Im assuming they are going to work, ill give you guys a ring later.
  4. What frequency is everyone using in their cars? Rules state this for race control East and Central Event Tracks – East & Central – 151.625 MHz I'm assuming if im using a UHF 400+mhz matched with a antenna that's rated the same and radio I'm probably not going to have transmission and receiving problems. Motorola lists this other antennas for the CM200: HAD4007 VHF 144-150.8 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount HAD4008 VHF 150.8-162 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount HAD4009 VHF 162-174 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount RAD4000 VHF 136-174 MHz, 3 dB Gain (no mount) HAE4002 UHF 403-430 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount HAE4003 UHF 450-470 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount HAE4004 UHF 470-512 MHz, 1/4 Wave Roof Mount HAE4010 UHF 406-420 MHz, 3.5 dB Gain Roof Mount HAE4011 UHF 450-470 MHz, 3.5 dB Gain Roof Mount HAE4012 UHF 470-494 MHz, 3.5 dB Gain Roof Mount
  5. Looking for input on this radio setup/if its going to work. Per usual im trying to do this as reasonably priced as possible.This is what I'm thinking for set up. I already bought a Motorolla CM200 Mobile Radio for $80.https://www.novacommunications.com/i...on%20Guide.pdfhttp://www.irlp.net/pnp-radio-pinouts.htmlJumper $65https://www.ruggedradios.com/index.p...products_id=88 Im assuming the 5 pin connector is universal between products, which is what the jumper cable has to tie into the harness.Car Harness $65http://raceradiosdirect.com/viewpart.asp?idpart=52000MPTT $32http://raceradiosdirect.com/viewpart...dpart=550003HDAntenna $40http://raceradiosdirect.com/viewpart.asp?idpart=59450KSo thats a total of $282 with out a crew unit for the pits. Anyone see any issues with this?
  6. I get my PFC08's from Apex Performance, has some of the cheapest prices i've seen https://apexperformance.net/product/0278-08-17-44/
  7. Bumping this up. Still looking for a long term team member who wants to drive and help set up the car. We are already filled for drivers for our first event at the Glen though.
  8. A bit late, but I remember someone was going around taking photos of the teams with their cars waiting in line for tech. Does anyone know who has those photos/ are they still available?
  9. Still looking for local team members. Looking for some young and driven people. Right now its just two 25yr old Mechanical Engineers stretching a dollar to live the dream. Must know how to turn a wrench and drive.
  10. K if the subframe rips out on my 210k fatigued chassis and possibly crash into someones car ill just say i didnt want to add points to my vehicle for saftey. 👍
  11. Ok so I guess I am going to have a problem with people disputing it. If i wanted a strut brace I would have tied the two thin sheet metal shock tower mounts together instead of welding a bar at the frame rails 12 inches away from the shock mount point. I'll just cut it out and plate it across to the thicker part of the frame.
  12. Dont have a current picture, but i had 10 points added for this bar in the rear as a "Strut bar". I thought it was ridiculous, but Watkins was my first ever event and i didnt question what the tech guy was doing. A bit ridiculous? What do you guys think? I was just trying to avoid a E46 rear subframe mount failure. Second pic is what I am trying to prevent, the bar i installed is welded to that piece that is cracked.
  13. First time wheel to wheel for most of the drivers on my team including myself. What a rush, can't wait to go back out with you guys. Sorry if we did anything stupid out on the field (May have done some yellow passes by accident).
  14. I'm sucking up the points and running a cooler, replacing engines isn't on my list of fun things to do.
  15. I didn't literally mean Float as in buoyancy. Meant it as not settled in a definite place; fluctuating or variable. The fluid by itself isnt going to lock all the pistons in the exact same extended position.
