  1. It looks like something out of a Mad Max movie. S.
  2. That thing looks like a goddamned death machine. You know how you look at cars from the '60's and '70's now and think, WTF? That's what I see with this truck. Holy crap...driving around with a car sitting over top of the cab, and that spindly box tubing supporting the whole contraption. S.
  3. FS DE, FS ZE or KL ZE? S.
  4. Sure, if she wants to make more I'll buy a batch. Like everybody else our guys loved them. S.
  5. Well bring even more to Daytona and I'll buy a batch for us and the KSR team! S.
  6. Wait...what? You guys are the ones who had empanadas at Road Atlanta??? Those were freaking delicious. My guys grabbed one for me and it was the best thing I ate all weekend. S.
  7. We thought about that. But it would require too much advance planning and one of our guys is a lawyer. Alternatively, paddock feats-of-strength have been considered. S.
  8. My opinion doesn't mean any more than the next Chump's but I never understood the logic behind some of the point assessments. Myriad items from brake cooling ducts to ECU tuning is free. Brake calipers, rotors, wheels, shocks are all under the 2x rule. I don't agree that an oil cooler offers a performance advantage. It's a durability item, IMO. And I double-dog dare Kevin to build another 300Z that's faster than the chop top Z. I'll personally deliver our team car to him to do so. S.
  9. I believe it's quite possible to wreck a toolbox coming down the paddock hill with one into the pit at Road Atlanta. S.
  10. This is a question for teams that are mostly comprised of regular team members, that aren't renting out seats on a regular basis. Do you tend to try and get your fastest drivers in the car at any particular time...early in the race? Later in the race when traffic is lighter? Have had the discussion and IMO, it's all random. Put your best driver, who you think can manage traffic and make good progress, and they could get caught under yellow for half of their stint, or have a racing incident with a car to car, or a mechanical. To me, it almost seems like a draw straws kind of thing. Others think we should put those who can manage traffic more easily in the car early, and save the later stints for those who are more conservative. I'm not sure in the end it makes any difference. Just curious what other teams are doing. S.
  11. It looks to me like the Infiniti came into the Honda as it came off the banking in NASCAR 4. But the reality is there are likely several vantages from which we'd need to see what really happened to draw a conclusion. Nice to see everybody kept it off the wall and lol @ watching cars still spinning in the camera car's rear view mirror. IMO, Daytona-Rolex is pretty easy in Chump Car. I regularly run it in my personal cars and at a sub 2:00 lap time, so the banking isn't intimidating at a slower pace. It's interesting that we call it a "super speedway" when most of our cars will be lucky to hit 120-125 mph from T11-T1, lol. The most disorienting part of Daytona-Rolex is NASCAR 4 at high speeds. In cars that run 170-180+ mph it takes getting used to dropping off the banking onto the front straight. Great track and tremendous fun. Can't wait until April! Oh yeah... S.
  12. Lol...holy poop! S.
  13. We've read the rules and have done what we could within them to avoid being penalized. We can't run an AM pan without points, and we can't duplicate that of other and nameless teams because we'd get points. Simple baffling will work to a point, but it's not going to be enough from what we've learned. S.
