  1. How many cars can run this track? Just trying to estimate a "drop dead" date for our repairs/signing up.
  2. ...is that not exactly what the Rules Interpretation document does? It provides all members with a document unaltered by the members that provides clarification and ruling on the rules... not sure what else you are looking for.
  3. I like this 400 number.. I already have my car picked out!!
  4. I would absolutely watch this, sad my team will be missing the event but in car, mic'd up drivers might help to make it up! NASCAR does it, why can't we?
  5. Yep, this guy. The bolts that go through the adapter into the crankcase backed out a little and sheared off, breaking lots of metal bits on the transmission 😕 that was an exciting (read: jarring) ride through turn 2 at gingerman as the car tried to shake itself to death.. 86 RX7 with a 2.4 ecotec and the miata trans, we have yet to finish a race due to engine/adapter failures both days of our first race last year at gingerman and another failure at a test day this spring. We're gunning for gingerman again this August! More detail can be provided in PM, this thread is derailed as it is haha.
  6. By transmission adapter do you mean the hub adapter bolts? This happened to our ecotec rx7... destroyed lots of things.
  7. I schedule time before every single sporting event to allow for the aforementioned PRP.. even pickup sports lol. Is this the kind of consistency teams are looking for in renters?
  8. no pic, in winston salem NC, $700 auto with motor/trans already out https://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/cto/d/pfafftown-1987-mazda-rx7/6893270145.html
  9. are these offered up as sacrifice to the greater good? or behind a pay wall?
  10. It looks like your cage performed exceptionally well, glad you are mostly ok! I had a question about the diagonal bar on the cage coming down from the A pillar support to the mounting point.. is that a new trend in cage design? looks like Zack did the same: What does that help with?
  11. Thank you @vtjballeng for your commitment to safety - I think this mindset continues to improve our series. And thank you also to @wvumtnbkr for willingly sharing his challenging experiences over the last year (fire, wreck..) to improve others' understanding of safety in building cars. James, could you share more detail on the false floor and footwell intrusion? I have a pretty good idea of how a dash bar would be installed, but those two items aren't so clear to me. Thanks!
  12. @Bill Strong maybe the new 3D cage design on the champcar site could include recommendations like dash bar and footwell bars to the diagram in a different color or something? This would certainly be helpful to new teams like mine. I can't wait to see the finished product!
  13. I think the concern about a helmet check is that helmets, suits, equipment etc. can be shared with other people. It is much more difficult (while still technically possible if you have small hands) to share a wristband.
  14. Maybe not at that price, but I feel the desire. Dallas is quite a rock's throw from most tracks... Excited to be at NCM!
