  1. Rule 8.2.3 "During.............. Non-driving crew members may wear an out-of-date Snell SA helmet for pit duties. Crew members with out-of-date helmets shall mark both sides of their helmet with the words “FUEL ONLY” in 1.5”, high-contrast and easily identifiable letters."

  3. I spoke to a friend who is a Service Manager at a Ford Dealer. He said they are seeing very few problems with the drive trains and as was stated above, the issues relate to the personal accessories. He did say that there have been improvements to those connectivity systems and that a 2017 is a lot better than the 2015.
  4. Sunday's race. I was watching the Race Monitor and Spartan's in-car camera. Premium Dudes passed Spartan to get back on the lead lap with about an hour to go. They were chipping away at the interval, a few seconds a lap. The driver of Spartan did an awesome job holding off the charging Premium Dudes driver. There were lots of laps where the difference was less than a second or they matched. It was very exciting to watch. Alas, with about ten minutes to go, Spartan ran out of fuel {you could hear the fuel pump thumping on the in-car feed}.
  5. Thanks for posting this. I have used Roam Mobile at other tracks but not at Watkins Glen.
  6. I picked up my Roam SIM locally {Vancouver area}. Activated it online. I have used Roam at VIR, Road America, Portland, Charlotte, and other tracks. I checked the coverage map, Watkins Glen should be Ok. It is fine for live timing and internet access. I don't think it would work for live streaming as there is not enough data per day.
  7. The city of Trier is 88 kilometers {55 miles} South of Nurburgring. {1/2 an hour by Autobahn speeds} There is a section of the Porta Nigra {Towering stone Roman gate} that survived from the time of the Roman Empire. As well, the oldest Christian church in Europe is a short walk from the gate.
  8. The Eclipse at COTA was a swapped car. I believe it was a Nissan V6 engine.
  9. I believe one of the wheels broke. {Heard something mentioned during Chumpcar Live wrapup}
  10. I think it was a blown head gasket. Was down to 5 cylinders. Parked it.
  11. What about these: HRX FIA Camlock Belts that are Made in Italy. They are dated thru 2022 which give you almost 6 full years of use. They are pull-up laps, clip-in ends and come in Black, Red or Blue. https://www.teamdi.com/product/hrx-fia-harness/ I have no experience using these but thought it was worth a look.
  12. According to the VPI lookup, https://www.chumpcar.com/vpi.php An E36 325 with either the M50B25 {1991 to 1995} or M52B25 {1995 to 2001} is 500 points. An E36 328 with the M52B28 {1995 to 1998} is 530 points.
  13. Do you run brake ducts? If so, make sure the left is flowing as much air as the right.
  14. When mounting the seat slides, angle where the front of the slide higher than the back. Ie. The slide ends closest to the steering wheel is higher than the slide ends that are near the middle of the car. What does this accomplish....as the seat moves forward, it elevates the driver so that a shorter driver isn't trying to see through the steering wheel.
