Here is a video of my fastest run at the event this weekend.  A longer video is coming, but instead of covering two events, I think it's going to cover this event and a clutch inspection/replacement.

They are a Hoosier radial slick.  28.0 x 14.5R-16.  14.5 inches in mm is 368.3, for those playing along at home.

I don't recall the comment so no sweat! wink

Thanks for the compliment. The car is stupid fun.  I launch in first gear and shift to second around the 10 mark in the video. I stay in second for the rest of the run.

It's definitely been a little while since I've had an update. Discovered a problem after the last race back in May, but life and other obligations have gotten in the way. Starting to make what is my final push towards nationals.

Great video, band sounds awesome. The EV charger was hilarious.

I use to rock the Wild Willy 2 back in the day.

Mikey snapped a cool shot of the underside of the car when we were working on the clutch.  The back of the car is at the top of the photo.

I'm hopeful to get to Nationals early enough Wed to see this in person and maybe get a picture of it next to the 360.   This has been one of the forum builds I've really enjoyed following and watching you press on through any and all issues.  Hope it goes well this year.

I insist on making that picture happen.  I've been dying to see the 360 up close!  Right back at cha with the favorite builds!

As an innocent bystander, I would certainly like to see that too.

So Mikey (Mike Moran) will be co-driving the Camaro with me at Nationals this year, and until yesterday he had never driven the car.  He beat me, but he is a National Champion, so it was a bit expected.  The good news is the data shows that I may be closer to him (at the moment) than I thought.

 

 

Unfortunately, I didn't get video of my run, but I did get data.  In this video he's the orange data line, and I'm the green.

 

 

A little bit of a work and a few more events and then Nats will be here before we know it.

I hope to see both of you in the trophies this year.  Good luck beating Mike.  He always inspired me to go faster.

I did manage to capture my last run.  It isn't my fastest, but it's not far off.  You can see how much we were fighting the back of the car.  Going to try a few things next time in order to settle it down a little.

Here is my 2022 SCCA Solo Nationals recap video.  It was a hell of a trip for sure.  It was cool seeing some of you again and meeting some of you for the first time.

I'm excited for the next phase of the car, but don't worry, I'll take you along with me.

I don't know CP cars all that well... but I've been staring at a lot of other data over the last couple years... and LatG's maxing at 1.2-1.3 (I think I saw one instantaneous 1.4g in there) seems a little low for "high grip hoosiers" on "high grip asphalt"... I'd think I'd see 1.6-1.7LatG's?

Did a quick look and found the C-Mod champions runs?  Looks like the winner was more comfortably around that range, with some transients closer to 2.0?  Not that that display is particularly "accurate" to derive numbers from.
 


edit:
In case the above seems "ciritical"... it's just my nature to focus in on an area that seems to 'bear fruit', and the LatG's kind of stand out to me.

Never-the-less, it's good to see update.  And I'm chuffed to hear you and the car are still improving.  I look forward to see that trend continuing.

You're 100% correct here.  We are going to be reevaluating the entire setup to try to get closer to those bigger numbers.

I'm sorry.  I'll show myself out.

A simple job, bleeding the brakes, has snowballed. I guess I should skip leg day. 
 

 

Video with the carnage and the upgrade path is in the works.
