Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

It was Wednesday the 21st of October and I had nothing important to do. It doesn’t take a long time to get to Tampa Florida from Cleveland when you’re in a private jet. I rented a Cadillac CT5-V for the 100 plus mile drive from Tampa to the Sebring International Raceway where I was able to take-in t...

Re: DragTimes.com

Finding the Cadillac Calais on DragTimes was easy to find, it's the only Calais, what a dramatic improvement from stock, that was a fun project, I remember the Eldorado that provided the motor. 1969 Cadillac Calais ---http://www.dragtimes.com/Chevrolet-S10-Pickup-Timeslip-17042.html The S10 Pickup i...

DragTimes.com

I have three of my cars on the Dragtimes.com website. It is interesting to see how close the 307 hp 3.6L v6 24 valve 2018 Canyon is to the 4.6L v8 32v 1999 300hp El Dorado. The GMC’s 60 ft. is .025 sec. quicker. Both cars are mid 14s over 94 mph. The caddy is .103 sec and .651 mph better. With coole...

Re: TRP Sat. 10/10/20

I went to TRP to watch my Granddaughter Rachel wheel her big Charger (Beckett) through the quarter for the first time. The Mostmint one was there with his stick shift Corolla (Carol) for moral support. Temperature was mostly 70ish, with a nice tail wind. I made three time runs before eliminations. ....

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

Since I didn’t go to TRP because of the possibility of rain, I took the private jet to Fontana California to the Auto Club Speedway for the iRace Version 12. The track was very large and difficult to get near the action. I even used a drone for some shots. I eventual took 31 images but these 9 tell ...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

TrackBird is back home with new lifters and no oil leaks.

Same ticking noise and lack of power persists.

Hmmm?

Re: TRP 09-23-2020

Thought I'd be a little early, but there was another large crowd. I was able to make two time runs just getting into sage as they closed it right behind me. .1666 lite, 2.2162 60 ft., 14.9588 @ 92.50 and .1907 lite, 2.2979 60 ft., 15.2629 @ 91.61. Got caught in a situation that cause me to sit idlin...

Re: TRP 9-16-20

We had an earlier than normal dinner time so I could get to TRP early, it didn't matter, I still only had time for for two time runs. .0328 lite, 2.2301 60 ft., 15.0224 @ 92.51 mph and .0226 lite, 2.2278 60 ft., 15.0550 @ 92.13 mph. Decided not to wait for Truck, not a bad decision, I did the same t...

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

Since TRP was fogged out, I took a private jet to INDY to catch the iRace. Really big crowd which made it difficult to find the best spots to take pictures. I did take 20 different shots and will present the 6 that best tell the story of #50. 0110 iRace v11 Andy pace lap.JPG 0120 iRace v11 Start.JPG...

Re: TRP 09-09-2020 FOG

When I arrived 'Smoke was having issues with his pretty Chevelle. I arrived a little late, just did get two time runs in.
