First question is, what sort of suspension do the cars run? Is a conventional circuit set-up (low and stiff) and alignment sufficient? (obviously without the negative camber) Or is there a black art to getting it all right? The salt in Oz is a lot smoother than that at Bonneville (or so I'm told) b...

Posting Photos

At this stage the only way to post a picture to the forum is if it already exists online somewhere. Bummer for some I know. That functionality is coming out in the next version of the phpBB software. I can't really complain as it's freeware and it does a pretty good job. It's a security thing, if an...

Suitable Browsers

The Bench Racing Forum uses the php programing language.
It can be successfuly used in most versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera and most other third party browsers.

However it will definately not work in the AOL browser.

There were no less than 3 cars / 4 drivers from NZ at Bonneville this year and they did pretty bloody well too.

Injector info

I asked by FI guru, Choco and this was his response. They are pretty big injectors. I suspect they are peak and hold (P&H) injectors. At 900 cc/min (divide that by 10.5 for lbs/hr, which is about 85lbs/hr) these injectors will look after a 500HP V8. Refer to my articles in ASR for the formula and ra...
