#111799 In the market, truck for towing / daily driver

Posted by lobster on 15 January 2019 - 01:29 PM

The 2016's are a "little" cheaper resale value because they had the last of the generation 1 3.5L ecoboost.  2017+ got the gen2 revised motor. (10 more horsepower & 50ftlbs more torque) 17+ also get the 10speed which is super radical.

"max tow" isn't available on the V8 F150 (it still has a pretty good tow capacity tho) the 3.5EB is amazing.  

 

I looked at all those trucks as well and got the F150.  

 

(btw @Hollywood has a well cared for 2016 F150 Ecoboost available i think) 

 

Depending on traffic/wind/elevation I will get anywhere from 14 - 17mpg towing my open trailer with my corvette on it. (17 - 25 when i commute downtown)

Reckon it's better to be king of the hillbillies, than jester of the pristine New Balance squad.

Yep that’s played out we’ve already went over that bad weekend.

He's just salty that CMC is just a bunch of slack jawed yokels and TT is the top shelf of drivers. 

 

He's national champion of being a hillbilly.

How is this going to work?  Are they gonna run the 200TW people in HPDE4?   

 

I'm a bit conflicted with the schedule this year.  

ECR is great and exciting 

tho lack of a MSRH CCW event sucks and we get another prohibitively expensive COTA event 

Oh and an oval with like a 2 turn infield where the speed disparity doesn't strike me as a safe environment.  (if the TT groups were split i dunno v0v)  




#111561 HPDE organizers

Posted by lobster on 03 January 2019 - 10:10 AM

I'm not the one looking at forming the team, some with much more experience than I is pulling people together. I personally don't like Lemons, and would rather be running AER or WRL, but we'll see how much my infuence can affect what we enter.

My focus will be on my own driver development, and comfortability on track, in my own car and getting instruction, with some competition thrown in later (the team likely won't find a car/build a car until later in the year).

 

 

im just trolling, pretty much every lemons driver I've seen is horrible.   




#111402 For guys that have sound issues at race tracks.

ahh.. corvette forums where we get such gems like "differences of washing a C7 Z06 Vs a C7 ZR1" 

 

https://www.corvette...r1-and-z06.html

 

corvette forum pretty much just solidifies the stereotype and even takes it to new heights.  




#111303 lobster car or how to choose seats?

Posted by lobster on 21 December 2018 - 07:09 PM

I got my 14" joes racing mirror today and well...I hate it.    

 

Everything seems so far away and wrong it's going to take forever to get used to. 

 

 

I may return it and look for another mirror that isn't so convex?  

 

 

ETA: holy shit we posted at the same time.  

 

i debated making that same joke damnit. 

 

 

I need a mirror to know when I should let the miatas by.    Still won't... I would just like to know.

Posted by lobster on 21 December 2018 - 02:14 PM

That Lobstah can't handle the speed...  :tongue:  :tongue:  :tongue:

 

lobster wants the speed  I want unfettered track to run 175mph.   I don't want to deal with baby sitting cones like some weird journalist test day.

I regrettably wont be able to make it Senior Roberto.   

 

I had plans that I had apparently forgotten about involving family. 

 

hopefully ill be able to get the car on track to shake it down before the season opener.

Got the fancy carbon fiber side skirts installed and the diffuser prototype from Difflow needs some small design changes to work so I'm not gonna install that until the new one arrives in january. 

 
 

Got the padding in the mail last night.  

 

My 14" mirror should arrive tomorrow.  

 

Need to install that crap, order tires and the car should be good to go.
