So its been a rough week for me and cars. Was going to bring the audi and its now having fuel flooding issues. So i was going to bring  the Rover mini instead but today its water pump blew. So we are now playing it safe. Still going to bring the veloster but instead of the audi i am going to bring a 1996 BMW 328i Automatic with the 2.8l stright 6. I dont see any problems with both these cars making it this weekend. Just sad that i wont see a classic audi of mini on the dyno.

Really excited for dyno day this year. Added an exhaust and made a few minor adjustments this year and would like to see if i have gained anything over last years baseline. On the other hand i just picked up a 84 audi coupe gt with some heathy engine mods that i would love to see what numbers it picks up. Might have to have the wife drive a car down for the day.

The fix was to fab a sort of baffle for the tank at the bottom of the pick-up.  We cut up a 5 gallon gas can and used the pieces and aluminum rivets to put together a basket that had high sides so the fuel would all be sloshed away from the pick-up in the turns but lower front and rear openings so it wouldn't starve when the fuel gets low.  In the mini, the fuel pick-up is spring loaded and pushed against the bottom of the tank.  We put the baffle at the bottom of the pick-up and pushed it in.
thanks i was going to look into this


Maybe a new fuel tank, I used to have a car that chugged <1/4 tank on hard accel and it turned out to be cracked baffles in the tank.

I hope not the car is a 06 and being a suzuki parts are few and far but i will be dropping the tank soon to replace the filter so i will loo into options maybe even converting to a out of tank pump.

depends where you started i was close to the end and by the time i was at the line the rain was full hail. So sad after verona the week before. So if we do this rematch who is going to chip in on a snow machine for the first heat?

If we do find a snow machine, don't forget second heat drivers have to WORK in it while the first heat drives. 
Fair is fair!!  Grin


Haha compared to the verona event the week before no problem! I will take snow and sleet over Pouring rain, standing water, and wind chills any day haha

Wow, you guys really know how to geekify (the word is in the urban dictionary) the results! entertaining to say the least, Does this somehow make us faster? Just sayin.  Smiley

Nah but it sure makes us feel better about being slow.   Grin


Agreed nothing like running r comps in the snow.


  We need an official rematch ! Everyone from the first autocross should come to the next autocross and we will run the same heats/separations and do another comparison : D

  Being totally serious though heat 2 had so many off courses that would explain why there were fewer cones listed. How many dry runs did heat 2 get I figured they got at least one but that's just a tease.

By the last lap it was so slick when i nailed a cone it just slid across the track straight up without falling over haha.

I saw that!!   The last time I saw a cone do that, I was taking a class in Canada driving on ice & snow.


Just wondering, how does the number of off-course runs vary between heats?
I wasn't paying attention first heat, but second heat it just seemed like there were a lot, and most were
not due to the weather. (A lot of people kept going wrong side of that first pointer cone for example.) 

Actually the wrong side of that cone was rather common in both classes. I worked station one in heat one and even the courses designer did it twice. Its always the simple things that get you

I also made a spreadsheet. Using the non-pax times for novice and street tire and just using the best raw time for everyone gave different results. I also removed any non-clean runs.

Heat 1 average best time = 41.437
Heat 2 average best time = 45.930

Attached is my spreadsheet.



I only did the top 31 best raw times in class mainly due to the dnf on the second heats 32 placed runner. This is why are second heat average is off by a 1000th difference but our first is a  over a second since i didnt include the gtos run.  I ran Ra1s shaved and heat cycled in the second heat. Man was i pissed when it started to hail. By the last lap it was so slick when i nailed a cone it just slid across the track straight up without falling over haha.

 thanks gunny i ran the numbers and average of the heats (based on the top 31 places)

Heat 1 avg time of 39.960 with # 1 Christopher Canns 04 Corvette z06 doing a 37.378 for FTD of Heat 1

Heat 2 avg time of 45.929 with # 96 Timothy Maxey   07 Mini Cooper doing a 41.431 for FTD of Heat 2

I reorganized it also per heat if anyone want me to post a copy. i think this is one of the first races i have ever been to to have such  dramatically different  course conditions in the heats. i haven't organized the heat by class yet but i hope for no discrepancy do to the different heats.

Is it possible to get the cars that ran the first heat?  Since the second heat was all rain i would like to compare cars in my class and times wet and dry. Thsnks

yep I can get the list to you. I'll have you know I didn't write it so I supply it to you without any guarantees that you will be able to read it.

Gunny

Haha good i will  take what i can get. I think the guy a head of me in my class ran in the first heat but also i would love to see the average time shift. It seems the mid fast dry times were in the 40 range and the wet fast were in the 42 range
