Re: Avoid The Curbs at VIR, Now It Is A Rule

Sure would be nice is they would pave the paddock before they spend money on curbs that are not needed.

Re: What A Racing Weekend, wow! - SPOILERS

Agreed. Amazing racing all weekend. I still don't understand why Speed feels the need to run a few races a year on Fox. Starting the coverage with the race already started, no pre-race, no...

Re: First Settlers - VIR May 20-22

Re: First Settlers - VIR May 20-22

I can only imagine how bad that must have been for you! If it was that bad for me 1/2 a straight later, it must have been like the fog rolling into SF Bay.

What a great weekend! Great to meet up with Fatih and Brian this weekend. Sorry about the BMW sending debris from the blown motor through your radiator Brian. At least we were able to slow you...

Re: Close Call at South Bend

Good catch. I was typing and thinking just the opposite in my explanation. T1 is actually increasing radius. Bonus points for Fatih! Another reason it is better explained over a beer :)

Re: Close Call at South Bend

Slip angle is probably easier to explain over a beer :)

However, the quick explanation is that when you deform the contact patch the tire (lateral load) will travel in a direction not the same as...

Re: Close Call at South Bend

Re: Close Call at South Bend

Agree 100% with 24Cr.

There is no reason to remove your hands from the wheel. Couple reasons: 1. If the wheel shifts unexpectedly you have lost control of the wheel. 2. There are NO places on...

Re: What Maintenance Do *You* Usually Do?

Voted medium. I would do some of the heavy lifting stuff but I prefer to use a pro for those items as you can really screw something up if it goes wrong.

Stuff I do:
Motor Oil
Tranny Oil
