Updates to Main ChampCar website - BOD Page, Swap VPI, BCR Change Logs


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

I have made some changes to the Board Of Directors web page.

https://champcar.org/mainweb/board-of-directors/

Links to this page are in the upper navigation bar under Contacts and in the lower footer in the left-hand links column

 

  • An email form has been added to make it easier for the membership to send an email to the Board of Directors
  • The CEO Red Flag Video YouTube playlist has been added to the page.
  • I removed the BOD Biography text as this was never used


I have made changes to the VPI-Swap page
https://champcar.org/mainweb/register/vpi-swap.php

This test was a carryover from the 2017 process. It has been updated.

As changes are made to the BCR the change log will be added to the download list below the main BCR download hyperlink.
Change logs will remain inside the BCR

 

New images added to the homepage.

 

 

more to come

I am responsible for the design, workflow, and usability of the websites.
The members have made posts that the information was hard to find, which tells me there was a usability issue.

No BOD approval required

The text on the VPI-Swap page was supplied by my boss, the CEO.

That is the concern.   Essentially a rule change without a BOD vote since this allows for different #'s to be used in the formulas determining VPI.

Matt,

This is where you get to send the board an email using the nifty email form I made earlier. :)

This is for the Swap-VPI and does not affect VPI. It corrects the old text that was a holdover with the change of websites.

The VPI result of using the swap calculator should be a fixed value based on the formula, just like the VPI number for a standard car is a fixed number arrived at by some formula.

 

Changing one mid season without warning, is no different than changing the other.

 

By changing the formula, or its inputs, you change the number.....

No formula. Subjective.

VPI Swap Formula as written in the BCR
Page 13
4.5 Engine swap

4.5.2. The webpage provides an automated calculator. The raw swap formula is:

IF[16 - (weight / (HP + hpAdd) ) > 0 ] THEN [ 0.032 * (16 - (weight / (HP + hpAdd))) ^6] + 50 ELSE + 50

Ideally yes, but as of now it is formula based, and the resulting post swap VPI should be the same, no matter what phase the moon is in when the numbers are entered.
