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.

Yep, never be afraid to tear it up if it ain't quite right. Difficult sometimes, your right.

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

So its a drag race. A long one. Amazing in car video. The acceleration past 300 was something.

Re: Turbinator goes Fast

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

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Thanks Greg, I think 15 mins for some of the faster cars will be a bit tight. It might mean their support crew will need to be at the deep end ready to tow them back before they run. Play it by ear first year I guess and fine tune if we need to.
Stayt'ie F100's only have headwinds. :)

Re: Two way runs for 2019

Heh Greg, can you clarify this. "• A qualified vehicle shall proceed directly to the designated impound area and report to the impound official within 15 minutes of the time stamp on the timing slip." My question is when is it stamped? When it spits out of the printer straight after your run or when...

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

The point is comparing it to the equivalent SCTA class Dave. I am 5mph odd faster than them in D/PP and within 1/2mph in C/PP in our fat air. No one else here is running Pickup and there is no challenge in an open record if we 'create' another class.

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

Hi Greg
I run VP fuels C14+ in our 300ci Windsor. It has 13.00:1 comp so this is beyond the range of avgas. I will be interested to see if we can come up with an unleaded that will comply in gas class and equal the performance of C14+.
The F100 being a pickup has no option but run in gas class.
