  1. Just playing devil's advocate - alignment can cause interesting behaviors that are only noticeable at full throttle. Perhaps they were making sure thrust angle was correct?

  3. When this happened to me at a dealer service department, they wouldn't return my calls either. So I dropped a DVD of the video off at the front desk with the dealership owner's name on it. I got a call back.
  4. With the SU group, you get a mix of powerful-ish tube frame car and aero effects prototype cars, with maybe a fire breathing factory production race car mixed in there. Without a doubt, the start and first two laps see the most body contact incidents in SU - cold tires and lots of pressure from the ST2/3/GTS3/4 crowd at their heels lead to questionable decisions. Either get out and stay in front, or be ready for the car in front of you to spin mid-track the first corner after the green.
  5. I'm in for ST5 at Cresson! Being the TT director would be super fun!! I could hand out DQ's like Oprah... you get a DQ... and YOU get a DQ. EVERYONE GETS A DQ!!
  6. Like most things racing-prep - it's a question of "will it pass tech" and "am I confident this won't fail in a wreck." If it has multiple bolts and looks secure, it's going to pass tech.
  7. We had a little discussion about this when I built a similar system for my car: You can channel your inner mechanical engineer and look at bolt shear strength versus likely impact forces, but 4 half-inch grade 8 bolts was more than enough for a 250 lb stack of steel even with a worst-case, frictionless napkin calculation. You should be good to go. Metal supermarkets is awesome! FYI they can punch/drill the holes for you to save the pain of putting 1/2" holes in plate steel.
  8. So, not to be a negative Nancy... but do the NASA TT rules allow swapping rear uprights from a different model (or aftermarket for that matter?) - especially since it increased rear camber? The rules disallow "drop spindles" specifically, so you might want to drop Greg an e-mail and make sure it's an OK mod for TT5... If it's legal then I know how to solve my camber problems.
