  1. What are you all using to reduce fuel tank capacity I have a 22 gallon cell and limited to 15.8 with adding 2 gallons to stock What are you putting inside the tanks
  2. Seems like over kill but rules are rules This is the first series that I am going to race with the requires an enclosure for a FIA tank Pictures please
  3. Anyone have pictures of there gas tank area completely covered like rules state We changed the vent but what we raced with last yr is another series Fia tanks still have to be covered?
  4. Just like title says has a B class car ever won or finished in the top 5 when and where, what was the make and model I am just wondering if need to move up to C class to have a chance at top 5 over all
  5. So it is minus 75 point for an automatic My question is that to be the automatic out of that different make or model plus 25 points Then the new driveshaft cut to length another 10 points Then your gonna have to have a better then stock trans cooler for 20 points So am I missing something or switching to an Automatic is only gonna get me minus 20 points Can this me correct ?
  6. 5l40 2nd gear 2.21 3rd gear is 1.60 4th gear 1.0 5th gear .75 very similar to the manual
  7. The stock solstice 5l40 (also behind early Gm 3.6 ) and programming the shifts to only shift up or down at a certain mph so will stay rev’ed up even when off the throttle basically locking in each gear till reaches down shift mph or up shift mph I know this part works as have played with in the past on 4l60’s just not sure on the longevity part I am ok with changing fluid as often as after every weekend isn’t a problem just don’t want to be replacing or rebuilding after every weekend
  8. The good The bad Let’s talk I feel that there are fluids that will hold to a weekend of racing with the right cooling in place If programmed correctly or manual valve body could get the shift point where they need to be Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated
  9. I understand it would be points for lexan was just wondering if it would be worth anything aero wise I air stays out of the cabin area
  10. Was wondering about blocking off the rear cabin area floor to roof I was think this may keep air from coming in side windows or does this just make the air want to cross from window to window
  11. It’s a factory copy how could it get points just asking not trying to being smart
  12. Is it worth anything to seal off the area behind the driver on both side floor to roof keeping a pressure in the cabin area so air does not want to go in the side windows or is air going to still want to cross from side window to side window also so thought of this hard top lexan closed off 3/4 of rear window I know the cones are killing me was for theme in other series gonna get serious with the car in 2020
  13. We are now running cobalt SS brakes and rotors in the front with st45’s and a combo of different makes factory parts in the rear to get a vented rotors on rear with a pro stop track pad pad life was great but burnt up the seals in both caliper looking into Ti shims for the next race
  14. Thanks that’s the way I understood it just wanted to make sure Thanks that’s the way I understood it just wanted to make sure
  15. Thanks for the in put we had an ok car at road Atl finished ok with letting all the drivers drive both day Which car where you in we are gonna put the stock manifold back on and take x2 points for our caliper upgrade as stock caliper don’t hold up learned that in the first two races of the yr We are planning on running Road America in April
  16. This is the math that I was figuring 10 point 1 lap car needs to be 1.2 to 1.5 second a lap faster in 8 hr race with 2 hr stents or completely not worth it I have put together 3 or 4 different plate forms with the 2.4l Ecotec engine swapped in at less weight and less points then the solstice At the end of the day I think that the car was raced in the SCCA as a series make the kappa plate form feared The car work well but is 14.5 to 15 lbs per hp no 12-13 lbs like some of the other plates at 500 points B class cars S2000 FRS/BRZ and so on
  17. So after looking at some things and the solstice staying 500 point I am looking into using a different chassis that id like to swap Which changes the classing from a 3.8L C class car to a 2.4L B class car Is this legal to swap a smaller/less hp engine for the min 50 point swap and be legal to race in a lower class even if there was never an engine offered that small in the new chassis
  18. This was a week or so ago but got it all apart to try to get 200 lbs out of the car for the 2020 season 500 points for solstice plate form gonna be tough but we will see what happens this yr Looking into new plate form
  19. Wondering across all the classes are most of the teams starting with laps of just some I can’t see making up more then a few laps total in a single day
  20. It’s a 2006 Pontiac solstice we currently race in with the Lemons series.

  22. How many cars on average start the race with more then 500 point or laps I am looking to bring a B class car and will be starting with a 500 point car and have a few small point adders I was just wondering where I am going to sit against other cars I am not sure how a 1999-2005 Miata with an Ecotec is only 450 point and my car starts out as 500 point being 250-300 lbs heavier and the same Ecotec power Thanks in advanced for any info Steve Peterson
