Who do you work for Lynchy? I used to be Telstra/NDC and then worked for Alcatel a lifetime ago.

Re: BOSS STREAMLINER S/UF 925

Anderson connectors are the two pronged external battery connectors which help when you want to plug in a remote battery to fire it up and quickly disconnect it.

Yep, I learn that 100mph tape isn't 200mph tape. LOL

Re: Brakes, how much do I need?

I run discs on the rear only on the ute and deliberately "knock" the pads off as l drive to the startline and not use the brakes before the run. As the Rev says when l lift my foot at 175 it scrubs speed all by itself quite well. I don't use the chute I can't see fronts only being a problem. Compar...

Brakes, how much do I need?

Okay, so I'm building an E/Pro car and because the record is 179mph, I'll have to build to 175mph+, so that means a chute will be needed. How much brakes do I need though?

Re: Shaguar

I noticed that their pits and spectators were much closer than what we run over here. Have they ever had a car on course spin out and collide with a spectator vehicle?

Re: E/PRO build - Project Bluebird

Got my SCTA rulebook yesterday (thanks Gaz) so lots of reading to do.

Parting out my XE at the moment, so that'll delay things, but it also gives me the opportunity to rip the 2.77 diff out.
