Smiling LZH….I think you understand the VTS process better than you lead on….which is cool. Your math is close at the wheels.The math is that we were 100-140HP down on the front runners. You well...

We did well…….ran every minute of every session for three days…..finished 15th….but squarely on the lead lap.

100% shakedown. It was about getting the chassis & electronics dialed, traction & launch control, diff set up, cooling packages and reliability. So many new systems to data log and evaluate…..stuff...

Yes it is.
With the chassis sorted, another 130HP to the rear wheels will be a game changer. The race engines will be done in November. Stay tuned.

We looked at several options……and went with the OS Giken. Obviously this BS is...

Thanks!. Both actually. Race engines to be complete in November. Save headers and ECU, the engine in the car this weekend is stock……..out of the original car with 9,000 street miles on it. Testament...

Good insight JR. The car has run every minute of every session. Working systems reliability and set up. It's the 4th time the car has been on a track. This is a multi year undertaking….as it was with...

Wow. Hats off to the Weistec guys. That requires solid engineering…….and a ton of trail and error. Thats pushing the envelope. Love to see the real time on that 837.

WISR is basically all lefts and few real braking zones. They wanted to break it up with more right/lefts and braking opportunities for systems data tracking. Yes, Craig was taking it ez…….thoroughly...

This is a BEAUTIFUL car. Holy ##@&^%$#!!

LZH…...Yes….I was referring to a FI vs NA motor. The "inefficiency" comment was aimed at overpowering the chassis configuration. The power band of the NA motor you refer to is more efficient in the...

I see. Would you explain to the audience what POWER is? Your comment would suggest that power is power is power. The previous poster made a great point. Thats it

Very well put. The premise of the comparison is key. The US v Europe paradigm is very different. The 0-60 mentality in the US has yielded some impressive tunes for sure. Let no one doubt the...

Oh come on, you cant possibly think braking late, late, late into turn 1 at Road America hauling the mail at 175 requires skill……..or keeping it pinned through the kink…….or drifting through 10 at...

Dunno…..looks like a standard oiler. The gist of the their FB post was that they have developed a stand alone engine management system for the 156, including programable cam timing. Thats not been...

This just hit my Facebook news reel. This isn't something thats been seen before! Whoa!!

I am......if that is somehow germane. Just wondering if anyone had seen the Auto Guide piece.
05-13-2012, 08:37 PM
Not. Just been watching and waiting for something to happen on this......and haven't. I think its pretty intriguing.
05-13-2012, 08:26 PM
This is interesting.....anyone catch this???
