  1. I started with a 100W system I upgraded to 400W from Renogy --
  2. I went a little more hard core. Started with 100W Renolgy with 2 Marine Deep Cells and a Solar controller. Ended up adding 2 more 150W for a total of 400W. I have a 2KW inverter. Handles most simple things I need at the track. Lights, chargers, air compressor, and even a cutting wheel. Probably run a microwave too if I really wanted. I've actually been thinking of building a cable to run to my RV to use it both ways to either charge the RV house batteries or vis versa should I need to, but haven't done that yet. Mike
  3. I've got solar power -- so power would just be fine. I can do the electrical hookup. Really looking to find a place to purchase and install the awning. Note I have swing up side doors, so I'm looking for a relatively flat solution -- probably similar to what I have on my RV. I have a room above, especially if I mount it on the top of the roof and extend, as opposed to above on the side.
  4. Looking to add an awning to my aluminum 20' trailer for the side for storing race car under during track weekend. Last event was a rainy one, and it's not convenient to load/unload into the trailer. Anyone have recommendations for a vendor to purchase and/or install? thanks, Mike
  5. What about flat towing with something like this and a custom setup for the front of the miata. https://express.google.com/u/0/product/Roadmaster-522-Falcon-All-Terrain-Tow-Bar-6000-lbs-Capacity/4745413679092664430_5246457975817441032_108310290 I'd want some sort of quick disconnect. I'd think about building something that connected to the sway bar mounts instead of the front bumper. I'm considering this for pulling a Boxster behind my RV as a street car. Mostly because I have the above already to pull a jeep (but the jeep is my daughters, and that's away at school) and I might have a spare Boxster laying around :-) Mike
  6. I'm running in the blue group with my underpowered Spec944 at CoTA. Caught up to a Blue-Solo M5 -- took 5 point byes on the same lap. Never sure whether I would get one or not, especially if you don't complete the pass, so it really can be hard on a momentum car to fly through a corner, only to have to check up and risk getting unsettled having to back out. Finally decided I would get one for sure and kept my momentum through 11 -- he got the drift (literally) when I gave him the pedaling with both hands gesture (i.e. i'm going as fast as I can go) as I pulled along side him -- followed by a lift gesture :-) M
  7. I ran my 944 at a Chump race there many moons ago. It rained HARD -- so HARD we had to turn counter into the banking to keep from sliding down it AND when it was sort of dry, it's the only time I've ever used 5th gear -- coming out of T4 onto the D part of the oval we were flat out in 4th gear, and would mechanically over-rev coming off the hill.
  8. I think folks discount it’s the number of laps you run, not who has the fastest lap or even fastest driver. Consistency and reliability and efficient pit work. We podiumed on our WRL debut with our chumpcar running good clean consistent laps at High Plains. We could be racey at times, but key was just chugging along.
  9. Have a team mate -- or some other team -- pick you up at the airport? M
  10. And everyone knows you spend much more time strutting along the paddock, than on the track :-)
  11. Not spammy to me -- I've been looking for a new set of shoes! Just trying to decide if I buy one pair or two :-)
  12. 3.0L also came from 968's. There's a Texas 944 group on Facebook that is a likely source. Jeff Lent, West Dilliard, Jose Avaya, or Phil Harris in the local PCA world might have one laying around. Mike
