26  Events / Autocross / George Bowland!!! on: April 10, 2013, 06:51:37 AM
Just checked the registration list for 4/14 and saw George Bowland is signed up to run with us in his BBR Special! This is by far the fastest car you will ever see at a VMSC event.

Someone please tell me this isn't a late April fools joke.

Glad you got it sorted out. 11-1 doesnt sound that bad but if you have anyway to put a little timing in it you could probably get to 13-1.
28  General / Open Forum / Re: Farmboy Fab: From Scrap to Racecar in 5 weekends, Lemons style! on: March 01, 2013, 12:33:26 PM
Throw the timing light on it and see what happens when you rev it. If you can put  marks at 20, 25, and 30 on the crank pulley.
29  General / Open Forum / Re: Farmboy Fab: From Scrap to Racecar in 5 weekends, Lemons style! on: March 01, 2013, 12:24:41 PM
ECU probably changes timing based on load and rpm.

Timing can have a big influence on AFR, have you checked to make sure you are getting the correct advance?

Any progress on this?
33  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day Sign-up on: January 18, 2013, 07:07:08 PM
Same here with the 600, won't be able to commit until closer to the date.

I'm hoping to get the car where they are all Fiat courses, unless we go to the drag strip.

The times shown as my dad's 6th and 7th runs were actually my first to 2 runs, we forgot to change the number on the car.

Does your motor have hydraulic valve lifters? I know Chevy truck motors tap sometimes after first starting until the lifters get oil pressure.

I'll find out who we use at work and see if I can get some prices.

Can you bring your copy to the next event, I'd like to check that out.

42  Events / Autocross / Re: Weather Policy on: March 25, 2011, 08:33:57 AM
The event has been cancelled due to the bad weather. The good news, it's only 2 weeks until the April 10th event @ RIR.
43  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day! on: February 26, 2011, 05:08:52 PM
David, thanks for shooting the video of the Fiat. We gained about 20hp in three runs and despite not making the final numbers we were looking for it was a really fun time. I highly recomend everyone to come out next year!

If anyone got the DRF files from your runs this download will read them...

click "trying to view your run" save and run setup

1.7 without significant aero is highly suspect, especially if you're also showing erroneous times in other places.  Were you in a full-on drift?  Because that can cause strange readings on accelerometers.

I'd think if street cars are pulling 1.2-1.3G a formula ford with well setup shocks and brand new R25B Hoosiers should be capable of 1.7.

It is a good point about accelerometers giving false readings when a car is sliding or has a lot of body roll, but I was watching Dick run and I'd say the car was locked down with little to no sliding going on and zero body roll.

Ed, I'm glad you and Justin brought the carts down. They were a lot of fun to watch. 

Anyway here's the best I could manage to do out there.

Racing tires should always be bagged when not in use, not just in the winter.
47  Pictures and Media / Pictures and Media from Events / Re: Photos from 11-15-09 autocross on: November 15, 2009, 09:27:07 PM
Here's a video of today's course.

John's right, it was a good battle and fun event even though we came home empty handed. If anything let's worry about getting our guns loaded up for the next round and making sure we all bring our A-game.

If there is any consolation we did take FTD and FTPax.

Here's a video of my run too...
49  Results / Autocross / Re: Bernard Cooley Trophied In A Mod at Nationals on: September 14, 2009, 07:44:00 AM
I never been happier about finishing fourth in my life... The car did pretty good, they were very fast courses, good surface (when dry) and flowing design. The motor fluffed a plug on my fast run Tue. but it managed to clean out by the finish. I was happy after day one and was hoping to maybe jump up another spot on Wed.

Wed. about 1 hour before we ran the bottom fell out and the course was almost underwater. Everyone on grid was changing to rain tires. We don't own any rain tires. I knew we were in trouble if the rain didn't stop, fortunately it did. The course was in full wet conditions on our first runs and we were off the pace. Still the course was drying fairly quickly. On our second runs we found some more traction and I was back in fourth overall. By the third runs everyone had changed back to slicks. The first half of the course had a dry line, but a few turns and the finish were still very wet. Every time out the course conditions had changed. I ran at the end of our run group and was sitting in 6th place after everyone else improved on their third run. I needed to pickup around 4 seconds to get back in the trophies. I managed to pickup 6 seconds. Wish I had videos but the camera isn't waterproof and the spray on the lense probably would have ruined the video anyway.

By far the most intense autocross experence I ever had.

third run from Tue / east course 52.7xx

first run from Tue / east course DNF

Here's a video from on board the super vee. The run was a 52.50, FTD.
