Re: theTRUTH

Switches and relays hate the salt. I coat all my electrical connections with bulk dielectric grease for that reason and have a spare everything. It helps keep it out.

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Correct, not a can of worms but can be mentioned at the AGM and put forward as a rule change if we want it. I understand the reasons we have gone to 2 runs but we only have one speedweek a year and every available run is golden.

Re: Two way runs for 2019

And why wait for the next day just because you are solo. Our Speedweek is shorter than Bonneville and a qualifier first of in the day that you then has to waste the entire day waiting for no reason. Should be an option for all racers to turn around same day if they are ready. A first run in the morn...

Re: Fuel signage

Okay, it's no big deal with google, all the info is there. It's the thinking ahead as to every flammable/hazardous that you will take.

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

The way we could get past the oxygen content is to introduce a control fuel. A control fuel will need to cover the very wide range of classes that gas class comprises. If/when we agree on this concept as a club then we might consider a slightly oxygenated fuel. This may end up as our best compromise...

Re: 26 days till pre-entries close

Thanks Greg, will get ours in soon.

Went to order VP fuel today and stocks are drying up. Will be a 2 week wait. Don't leave ordering leaded race fuel much longer or you might miss out.

Can't wait.

Re: theTRUTH

Stayt'ie, I have always been surprised that our rules allow us to run lower than the rim in both car and bikes.

Re: theTRUTH

There is a point in any build where you finish creating problems and can suddenly move forward. The least number of compromises the better but often the simplest design is the hardest to achieve.

Re: Turbinator goes Fast

Brakes above 200mph would most likely be toast I guess. Watch the G's as each chute comes out. Second chute was over 2g. Bigger brakes are limited by traction also I guess. The slipperier the car is the harder it is to stop also. The F100 I don't use brakes just release the throttle and physics take...

Re: Turbinator goes Fast

Good point. Be interesting maths to see the required horsepower difference for the next 18mph.
