  7. thanks for your help guyz, I think I will apply all your tips, I wanted to avoid spending 200usd on a hood. I can't find one cheaper πŸ˜• (i'm in europe, shipping is quiet expensive)
  8. Last week
  9. So for those of us in the back; Am I reading the 2020 part of this thread to indicate that we forget about the Solo2 DL, find an original Solo DL w/ SmartyCam Plug it into CanBus / OBDII depending on model year to read available OE sensors, then /thread?
  10. Thanks for the insight. I was aware of the 49 CFR but not aware of the track limitations. It wasn't for the power more for the octane. Right now I'll stick to the 100 octane mix since it's what my uncle used. If I remember right though the 49CFR allowed 110 gallons not including the vehicle. (aux storage). But yes I completely agree with the consumption. My "novice" level I was using only 4 gallons per 20min session. My uncle being an instructor is the only data I have on fuel consumption and at the Road america was his biggest fuel hungry track would use 10 gallons in a 20 min session which he said was right around 3.4mpg. He said michigan, putman, mid ohio etc would average around 4.5-5mpg. Right now I'm getting a bit over 6mpg πŸ˜› Don't get me wrong... I'm not changing anything until I need to. Which is literally years away.
  11. ... running into other large objects tends to leave indentions on fiberglass... πŸ˜›
  12. I feel ya! It's been a full on thrash every night this week to be ready for tech inspection Friday.
  13. Your car is VERY thirsty. think of how much fuel you go through now. Double it when you develop more speed and are on the throttle more time/lap. and now add another 30-50% for the greater consumption due to the E85. Fast guys I know in decent power cars go through 15-20gallons PER SESSION on track. One guy I talked to recently with a ~600hp Camaro said he converted to E85 and would go through >100 gal in a weekend. He converted back to gas due to the hassles. 49 CFR covers transportation of fuels, and the internet opinion is that 110gal of any type of fuel is the max you can carry in a single load, which includes furl drums and anything in the car. Also, many tracks have a 5gal container size limit. you can bring as many 5 gal containers as you want, but you cannot bring a 55gal drum to the track. Soooo.... Be armed with all of the information before you convert the car to E85 and make sure it's the correct decision vs. "I can make more power on it".. ... And without beating on that horse any more, more power is the last thing you need right now, young man. πŸ˜‰
  14. March is a lot of time.. aiming for Friday before 7 here..
  15. I think the 1999 is also the lightest watercooled 911 ever built!
  16. My car has the 20 gallon fuel cell. It won't hurt me to switch and that is my plan but some will need to consider it. Also this brings the need to tote E85 to the track as well. I have a trailer and can do this but others who might drive to the track could hurt them to do so. Good points but E85 shouldn't hurt that much considering we are already running these motors hard unlike a normal motor. Drag boys live by the stuff. New new pumps are good for it and my entire fuel system. My only thing left to do is upgrade the injectors and get a retune. My 60lbs won't be enough so I'll need 80lbs (or 1050cc's)
  17. FIFY πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Also...we need to get the car running. Like for real. March is coming fast.
