4  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Opinions on running by class on: April 28, 2016, 06:13:04 AM
I like running by class and it worked well for us at the first event. At the last event we ran the last heat and there were only a few cars and so we were basically hot lapping with two drivers. We gave up our last two runs because there was no opportunity to cool the car. There should always be a minimum of five minutes between runs per the rules. Consideration needs to be given to heat size relative to the number of two driver cars.

How tall are the scale pads? I think I could brake the aluminum channels out of a 4'x8' sheet of 1/8" aluminum at my work.
6  General / Technical Help / Re: Car scales and corner weight? on: April 02, 2016, 08:34:34 AM
SCCA uses two 10" aluminum channels between the front and rear scales on each side. The channels slide inside each other and are marked so you can set the scales to match the wheelbase of the car. If when had 4 ramps and the channels you can run a lot of cars across the scales. Like Justin said we need to find level ground but it should be good enough to an idea of where you are at.

Thanks to Gunny for putting together a great course and congrats to James Churchill on FTD.

Here's the quickest run I could put together in the Fiat, 34.6xx. Hope we get some warm weather at VMP on the 19th.

I have a friend selling his Audi A4 with a manual transmission.

Wait that's $90k and has 115hp?
19  General / Open Forum / Re: Bernhard I found a FIAT for You on: July 22, 2013, 06:19:01 AM
That's a nice one. I can imagine what it would cost to put a motor together like that and I know my pockets aren't that deep.

Tach? why on earth would I need one of those?

It was a good day all around. The car is running well, course was great and the rain held off until we finished.

Here is my FTD run in the Fiat.

I really enjoy following this, but do keep in mind you are all fighting for second behind the Fiat.
